Opening Day has arrived for the Rockies, but they aren’t the only team in Colorado starting something new on March 28, 2019. Purple Row is excited to roll out a shiny new podcast called Affected by Altitude—a show by fans, for fans. Hosts Sam Bradfield and Ben Kouchnerkavich are joined by Eric Garcia McKinley, Renee Dechert, and Adam Peterson on the inaugural episode to provide a recap of Spring Training and preview the upcoming season.
AxA is a bimonthly podcast featuring roundtable discussion, game segments, interviews, and the occasional hot take from a revolving group of contributors from Purple Row (and elsewhere, perhaps). We live in different places, have varying backgrounds, and may or may not know what WOBA is (Editor’s note: It’s wOBA). Regardless, we are all united in our love of the Rockies and a desire to provide Purple Row readers with a fresh new voice.
But we need your help! This show is for you—Purple Row readers and Rockies fans. So please let us know how we’re doing, what you would like from the show, and what we can do to improve. Get in touch with us in the comments below or on Twitter at @AltitudeEffect.
