Default Dinner With Racers

Just stumbled across a fun podcast series called "Dinner With Racers," in which Acura factory driver Ryan Eversley and media guy Sean Heckman interview various sports car racers over a meal. It's in its third season now, and there are a ton of podcasts on the website, ranging from David Hobbs to the fun-loving Taylor brothers. Some interviews are better than others, but it's worth a listen while running/working out or commuting in the car. I see that rennlister MJR911 has mentioned the series in a couple of posts, so some of you may be aware of it.

I finished the Johnny O'Connell podcast tonight. It's a highlight--lots of great racing stories, and he manages to somehow be charmingly cocky and self-deprecating at the same time. Really fun listen. Enjoy.

I listened to a ton of these on my drive from Houston to VIR and WGI and back. Very good podcasts IMO.

You're two years behind! I'm anxiously waiting for season 3 to drop. The Whittington and Lanier shows were awesome.

They haven't had anything new in a while. I dropped the podcast. When are the new ones supposed to come out?

Their format is once a year post racing season. They drop them all at once. Netflix style.

Poopsocks was fantastic.

So was the Level-5 special episode with Jeff Braun.

They were all really good actually.

Hate the schoolboy giggling and the talking over the guests...but if you can get beyond that, it's a terrific series. Their website has some associated videos of horrific crashes.

Just got started on this in December of '17. There is some great stuff in there. Hobbs is a highlight, as is Mario Andretti, Lally, Legge, Level 5, Lynn St. James, Gill Campbell... I think my two favorites so far are Mario Andretti and Robin Miller.
