Not another podcast...

Well, I've done it.


Jumping on the bandwagon, mostly motivated by a love for the sport of F1 and a burning desire to find a creative outlet outside of work hours, I've obnoxiously taken the leap to join the annoying many and launched a podcast.


I know everybody is doing it and thinks they can do it. And I'm not any different.


But it's a passion project and it's enjoyable. It's allowed me to build the brand, do all the design work, create the website, plan out all the content, host the recording and even do the editing... myself. And over time, I think it will get better and better.


Here the gist of it... the spiel if you will!


United by an amateurish and mostly uneducated love for Formula 1, three everyday fans armed with a microphone are on a mission to obnoxiously share their insights and opinions with anyone that will listen. With next to no strategic or technical experience, each episode of this new, unofficial F1 podcast will digest the latest Formula One on and off-track news, controversy, characters and gossip in a bid to help break down the complexities and barriers of one of the world’s most entertaining competitions.

Whether new to the track, a know-it-all who’s seen it all (and is bored), or just an in-betweener, join Ev, Oli and Digby (the Idiots of F1) for a laugh, some gritty awkwardness and mostly some lightness in a world, and a sport, that can often take itself far too seriously.


Where are we today?


Well, excitingly, we're 6 episodes in! And every episode sees more listeners, subscribers and downloads. In fact, as of today, not quite 2 months since airing our first proper episode, we've:


  • Had the pod downloaded 1,200 times

  • Had the pod streamed on Spotify 1,100 times

  • Had the pod streamed on Apple 700 times

  • Recently been listed on new directories

  • Amassed over 1,500 new followers on social with nearly 20,000 engagements!


Not too bad at all! Make sure you check it out, have a listen, rate and review! And keep coming back for more.
