Folks, it is official. Raf took over the show’s agenda this week and he made it an interesting one! The boys discuss a few topics: 🌎FIBA Champions League Americas ⛹️♀️Female basketball players that influenced us the most 🐣Early Rookie of the Year discussion (we gave Tyrese Haliburton a new nickname btw) ⚫️🔴A look at how the Blazers are doing 👟New Nike Fly Ease 😡KD’s Contact tracing disaster
After a couple of weeks off, the boys are back just in time to celebrate Thanksgiving (in Canada). In this episode of the Dropping Dimes podcast the boys share what are the things that they are most grateful for in basketball and just like your traditional turkey day dinner, there were some disagreements and arguments but in the end, we’re all family…right?
What does the squad do when they’re in different countries? RECORD! Distance is not a challenge and on this episode Rod and Evans discuss the WNBA Finals, the NBA Pre-season game in Vancouver and Rod becoming a celebrity in Mexico
After a 1 week break, the boys are back and with more complaints than ever! Well, not really. On this episode, Rod, Raf, and Evans do talk about why the FIBA Basketball World Cup might be as electric as its closest cousin, the FIFA World Cup, and what can be done to make the tournament more interesting.
Uncle Drew, Coach Carter, Jesus Shuttlesworth, Billy Hoyle, and Bugs Bunny – What do they all have in common? They are some of the many iconic characters in basketball movies that we all love and on this episode the boys tell us what are theit Top 3 of the Best Basketball Movies ever! Let us know what are your Top 3 Basketball Movies!
Jordans, Kobes, TMacs, Ewings, Pennys, you name them. We all have a favourite pair of shoe, realistically, more than one pair and on this episode, the guys share their top 3 favourite basketball shoes plus their honourable mentions, which include some very interesting options, to say the least.
On this very Canadian episode, the boys catch up on the WNBA and the Big3 and of course tackle the early hours of free agency. Are the Nets automatic contenders now that KD and Kyrie have committed to the team? Where do the Knicks go from here? Where will Kawhi land? These and many more questions are answered in this episode!
On this very special episode of Dropping Dimes, we are joined by award winning, Vancouverite film-maker and the director, writer, producer and co-star of Finding Big Country, Kay Jayme! We had a great time with Kat, we asked her more details about her passion for basketball, her favourite shoe growing up, favourite Grizzlies player, her favourite WNBA player and more.
We also asked Kat about her motivation behind Finding Big Country, her introduction at the Vancouver Film Festival, and we even made a case for Kat to be part of the organization once the Grizzlies come back to Vancouver!
Definitely a classic episode that you won’t want to miss!

Here’s the thing about doing a podcast. It is awesome! But it’s not as easy as it migh look (sound?) Regardless, Raf and I are having a blast with this project and we hope you guys are having as much as we are!
On this week’s episode we talk about some of the exciting basketball events that are coming to Vancouver next week in preparation for the NBA’s pre-season. One of them, the premiere of “Finding Big Country“! An amazing story from the perspective of a superfan of the Vancouver Grizzlies and her quest to find her childhood hero, Bryant “Big Country” Reeves.
We also end up talking about And 1, Nike’s latest campaign, and Rod goes on a rant on how Foot Locker Canada is not living up to expectation. Enjoy!
