The Toy Department

The Toy Department features radio professionals Matt Kolsky and Derek Madden discussing, debating and dissecting all things sports, entertainment and pop culture. It's a free-wheeling, unfiltered chat about the lighter side of the modern world.



The Toy Department – Episode 14

In Episode 14, Derek Madden and Matt Kolsky return after a not-so-well-earned week off with HOT TAKES for your cold ears… It begins with an intense discussion of Game of Thrones – which released its first real trailer since the last pod and returns to TV in about a month – and then a short but ardent appeal from Madden in favor of his favorite TV show, The Americans (20:50)… Then sports talk takes over for a bit as the gentlemen discuss Goose Gossage’s response to Bryce Harper and one-man get-off-my-lawn campaign (26:00). Finally, they get into some music (39:50) as both Kolsky and Madden make listening recommendations for pod fans — take their advice, they have excellent taste.
