Sean Keay: The Score, MLSE, & Space Monkey

Updated: Apr 27

Sean Keay (Space Monkey) doesn't have to travel far to hop into the studio with Clay. The current Head of Development for Space Monkey chats about his early days at theScore, that time the app melted down during a World Cup draw, and the move to Toronto FC. You see, that's where Sean and Clay met. The two then chat about their first draft together, walking the line working for a team (and getting in trouble for things) and the pact they made if ever they were to leave MLSE.There's conversations about podcast creation, the digital world and trying to build a media company from the ground up before finishing with a now dated segment where they both make MLS Cup predictions. This episode was recorded on October 4th, 2019.
