Title: Raptors Weekly Podcast, Aug 8 – Olympic basketball preview
Date: August 8, 2016
Original Source: Raptors Republic
Synopsis: I hosted the latest edition of the Raptors Republic Weekly Podcast, teeing up the Olympic basketball tournaments around some audio difficulties and guest cancellations.

Blake brings on a few guests to tee up the Olympic basketball tournaments (see the schedules here).

On this week’s episode, host Blake Murphy brings you the following segments:

  • GUEST: William Lou
    • How cool it is that DeMar DeRozan and Kyle Lowry are representing the Raptors here.
    • Could this be another big breakout for Jonas Valanciunas?
    • Is this all a prelude to DeMarcus Cousins becoming a Raptor?
    • Shout out to Ben Uzoh and Roko Ukic.
  • Come see Will and I at Hoop Talks on Sept. 7.
    • Do the women have a legitimate chance to medal?
      • If not, Canadians should still be very excited about the future of this program.
    • How does the women’s bracket stack up?
    • Okay, so this segment isn’t actually there. It was recorded and Meghan was AWESOME, but the Skype recording was corrupted somehow and we lost the audio. I’m really disappointed. Apologies. We’re going to try to have her on again soon to make up for it.
  • GUEST: Andrew Lynch – CANCELLED
    • I teed him up at the start but he wasn’t able to make it on in the end. I’d still highly recommend reading his piece on Breanna Stewart. Andrew’s great.
    • Seriously, I had a rough time with the podcast this week. What a day. Sorry, everyone.
  • GUEST: Harsh Dave
    • General Olympics excitement and Canadian pride.
    • A quick wrap of the weekend’s game.
  • And a shout out to my man Killa Con, who made that custom intro for us a few years back andpainted this gem for your boy. He just dropped a new album you should definitely check out onSpotify or iTunes.
