Do you hear that? It's the sound of a world without Jays' radio broadcasts. Drew and Kaitlyn discuss Toronto eliminating its radio broadcasts and, instead, deciding to simulcast its television broadcast (3:00). Why is the organization doing this and how will this affect your listening experience? Is not having a radio broadcast detrimental to the team? The Athletic's Philadelphia Phillies scrivener Matt Gelb joins Drew and Kaitlyn to wax poetic about Dunedin, the golden capital of Toronto (20:30). Will homers be a regular occurance in TD Ballpark? Matt shares his experience in Florida at Phillies' Spring Training and describes the camp's atmosphere (28:00). The trio also dives into Philadelphia's off-season and its farm system before Kaitlyn serves a cold dish of Oldtakesexposed to Matt (33:00). Afterward, Kaitlyn colors Toronto's approach to player and pitching development and how it's impacted arms like Robbie Ray (52:30).
