Affected by Altitude: Actual Breaking News (at time of recording)

It’s the first episode of the 2022 season, and we got some actual incredible breaking news to discuss during the episode! Plus we recap Opening Day and the 28-man roster.

The Purple Row podcast Affected by Altitude is hosted by staff writers Evan Lang, Skyler Timmins, and Mac Wilcox, who are all incredibly proud and excited to be lending their voices to more great Purple Row content for you to enjoy.

This week, Skyler and Evan sit down to discuss the 28-man roster to start the season and break down the Colorado Rockies’ Opening Day loss to the Los Angeles Dodgers. We had some other stuff planned for the second half, but something unprecedented happened: news broke WHILE we were recording! Not the day after! Rockies legend Todd Helton has been hired as a special assistant to the general manager. We discuss how we feel about the move and what we think it means moving forward for the organization.

Affected by Altitude is a weekly or bimonthly podcast featuring roundtable discussion, game segments, interviews, and the occasional hot take from a group of Purple Row contributors. We live in different places, have varying backgrounds, and may or may not be filming a Todd Helton and Dinger buddy cop movie. Regardless, we are all united in our love of the Rockies and a desire to provide Purple Row readers with a fresh new voice.
