What’s the name of the theme song?

What’s the name of the song in the opening credit? I can’t put a finger on it! Great pod, keep it up!

Love it!

I can’t get enough Raptors analysis, so I love listening to, both, The Raptors Republic and Talking Raptors. My only criticisms that I have are: A) the audio quality on Raptors Republic isn’t great, and B) Nick and Barry should be drunk on every episode of Talking Raptors.

Great listening!

I love to listen to this podcast in the morning on my commute! The host gives very good analysis/breakdowns. I particularly enjoy his positive spins on the most disheartening games.

I listen to this podcast after every game

Good takes, and good perspectives are expressed on this podcast ! I also like when the guests are invited. The host always has some interesting and sometimes thought provoking questions. Let’s go Raptors 😀

First stop after the game

On the morning after a game, Sam’s reaction podcast is the first thing I check for, even if I watched it live. I’m going to miss a bunch of games next month, however (comma), I know that just by listening to Sam the morning after a game will keep me up in everything.

Raptors Reaction + Talking Raptors + All Raptors Republic Podcasts are 5 Stars

Samson Folk’s post game reactions are great summaries and with fair critique of the Raptors. Always part of my daily listen (especially after late west coast games). The Talking Raptors duo are hilarious and I appreciate their Raptors Homerisms which is needed every now and again. I also appreciate the West Indian representation. Please feel free to drop more Guyanese cuss words!I also enjoy the other Raptors Republic podcasts. Please keep up the good work.

The OGs

They have done so much for the culture. The Republic is always essential. Even the most levelheaded contributor shows huge passion for the Raps.

Great with Will Lou and Zarar....took a dive with Folk

This podcast got 5+ stars up until Will left. I downloaded each episode possible immediately. Now with Samson Folk it sounds like he’s talking from a bathroom. That type of connection is passable if it’s a guest. But for the main host, I can’t handle that unprofessional sound quality. Samson may the best most educated guy out there but I can’t even tell as I can’t stand more than a few minutes of that connection.

Great again now that Will Lou is gone

His uneducated, uninformed salty tales made the podcast unlistenable. Finally have some Folk(s) who actually understand ball.

Talking Raptors great, Post-game less so

Nick and Barry provide lighthearted conversation about the raptors and they’ve got great chemistry. I love listening to them banter even when it goes off tangent or off the rails. Will Lou was the real reason I subscribed to this podcast, but he’s now moved on. Provided great analysis and tactical insight after every game. The new host seems a bit raw/inexperienced hosting a podcast. Awkward questions at time with guests (ie with Blake Murphy). Enthusiasm is there but not sure if it’s nervousness or just the lack of experience, but my engagement has quickly fallen off.

Don’t do podcast after game!!

Sorry guys but I tried to keep listening to your podcast but it’s nothing but you guys drunk and rambling on about nothing. Nothing worse then listening to drunk guys that can barely speak talk on a podcast but if your into that then this is podcast for you but not for me. No value in this podcast! Or at least the ones that are right after the game need to not be done anymore!!

Talking raptors

I love the rapcast and raptors republic and really appreciate the job Samson has been doing with taking over the reaction pods. But I just had to post this about the ‘taking raptors’ podcast. It reminds me of going to a bar sober and listening to drunk people have pointless drunk convos. They’re funny guys but the more and more I’ve listened the more I realize these guys know nothing about basketball (and sports) and are just spewing rhetoric. This hit a limit when they had their last guest on today, I think his name was Monty, it honestly was like listening to an inebriated hockey fan talking about basketball and the raptors. How was that on a basketball podcast? Sorry to crap on the podcast because I love most of it, but talking raptors is getting unbearable to listen to.

Too long

Keep it simple. There’s a lot of pointless speculation and drivel. New guy reaching with silly comments to get a reaction. Stop insulting your audiences’ mental capacity by trying to bait them. NO CHRIS PAUL DOES NOT DESERVE A FINALS APPEARANCE MORE THAN KYLE. Stupid topic, irrelevant.
