As pitchers and catchers embark on their annual rites of baseball passage, we’re thrilled to bring you a fresh season of the podcast featuring more action-packed round table discussions, exclusive interviews with compelling guests; former and present Blue Jays, media luminaries, and a litany of live and interactive broadcasts that will get you through a devastating losing streak and straight into the light of day.
