"The Rapcast" has been a staple of Raptors Republic for years. Raptors Republic runs four podcasts, with one of them, The Doctor Is In with PhdSteve currently on hiatus.
- Raptors Weekly: Airs every Monday with the occasional Raptors Weekly Extra airing on Friday; hosted by Zarar Siddiqi
- Talking Raptors: Airs Friday during the season and hosted by Barry Taylor and Nick Reynoldson
- Podcap: Post-game audio and insight from Toronto Raptors home games, created by Ryan McNeill
- The Doctor Is In: Airs Wednesday during the season and hosted by Steve Gennaro (currently on hiatus)

The King of the Morning Coffee joins the pod as we keep it light after a light week, and muse on Matt Devlin, Facebook, and the upcoming schedule which features the East’s elite, bottom, and in between teams.
The podders reflection of a winless week includes an examination of what’s up with Dwane Casey’s infatuation with getting killed on defense.
