This episode was recorded at the Great Hall in Toronto, as part of the Long Winter festival on Friday March 18, 2016. I moderated a panel about the Toronto Blue Jays featuring experts such as Baseball Life Advice writer Stacey May Fowles, Toronto Star columnist and Newstalk 1010 host Desmond Cole, Birds All Day podcast host Drew Fairservice, and Long Winter co-founder and Fucked Up guitarist Josh Zucker. By all accounts this was an insightful, fun, and accessible conversation about the Jays, spring training, the giant Ted Rogers statue and the police and online threats, Jose Bautista and the batflip and Goose Gossage, decorum, star veteran contracts, Alex Anthopolous and Ross Atkins, how the Jays impact the city of Toronto, losers, Josh Donaldson a.k.a. Our Charming Dirtbag Boyfriend, Toronto’s tiered sports hierarchy, the Leafs and Raptors, Rob Ford’s Toronto, a gay pride night, the 2016 roster and season, the Kansas City Royals, Edwin Encarnación, a lightning round, and that’s the ball game.
This episode of Long Night with Vish Khanna was recorded at the Great Hall in Toronto, as part of the Long Winter festival on Friday November 13, 2015. My guests were Toronto journalist/broadcaster Desmond Cole, stand-up comedian Matt Collins, and hip-hop artist Elaquent. My sidekick is James Keast and the Long Night house band is the Bicycles. This episode was recorded just as the terrorist attacks in Paris were contained and this left me feeling rather frazzled and emotionally exhausted but I did my best not to show it.
