The PR podcasters are back with Episode 2 of Affected by Altitude. In this episode, Sam Bradfield and Ben Kouchnerkavich recap the previous two weeks of action, Eric Garcia McKinley explains just how good Marquez’s one-hitter really was, and everyone — including Adam Peterson and Nick Hertzog — bemoans the current state of the team with varying levels of despair.*

AxA is a bimonthly podcast featuring roundtable discussion, game segments, interviews, and the occasional hot take from a revolving group of Purple Row contributors and Rockies fandom. We live in different places, have diverse backgrounds, and may or may not care what FIP is (but neither does Corey Sullivan). Regardless, we are all united in our love of the Rockies and a desire to provide Purple Row readers with a fresh new voice.

Since we are only two episodes in, we still have a lot to figure out about podcasting, our content, and our roles on the show. Please let us know how we’re doing and what you would like to see from your Rockies podcast!

You can listen below, or click here to find the episode on Soundcloud. This and the previous two episodes should be available on all podcast apps very soon.
