Greg James: Passing my driving test and being on the radio, were the only things I ever wanted to do.
It's the final episode in the series, and Jason and Dave are going out in style, as they welcome the host of the Radio One breakfast show Greg James, into their virtual studio. Not only is Greg an award winning radio and television host, but he's also an unashamed petrolhead, who's loved cars for as long as he can remember. From humble beginnings, driving his mum's Renault Clio when he first passed his test, Greg has graduated up to some tasty machines over the years, and his current pride and joy is an E34 BMW M5 from 1994, which he describes as the most incredible thing he's ever driven! With laughs a plenty and some brilliant car stories, this is a cracking episode to go out on!
'Don't get done get Dom' with Dominic Littlewood!
Jason and Dave's special guest this week is consumer champion Dominic Littlewood, who as well as being no stranger to challenging rogue builders and con artists, is also a massive petrolhead, with a real taste for American metal!
Hitting Top Gear with James May
He's one of the biggest names in motortainment, and this week Jason and Dave open their virtual gull wing doors, to the one and only James May! He may have been nicknamed 'Captain Slow', but he's certainly lived life in the fast lane on 'Top Gear' and 'The Grand Tour', and as you might imagine, he's more than happy to talk about all that himself, Clarkson and Hammond got up to over the years!
Car S.O.S with Fuzz Townshend
This week, Jason and Dave's special guest is star of the hit TV show 'Car S.O.S', Fuzz Townshend. Having had a career as a bus mechanic, a pop star drummer and now a TV presenter who makes people's car dreams come true, Fuzz has certainly got a story or two to tell!
Adventures along the Amalfi Coast, with the devilishly dashing David Gandy
There's not many men that put Jason and Dave in the shade looks wise, but David Gandy manages to do just that! The world's most famous male supermodel is the boys' special guest this week, and as well as being devilishly dashing and a photographer's dream, David is also a dyed in the wool petrolhead, who likes nothing more than talking about cars!
The best you can be, with Penny Mallory
On this week's episode, the boys are joined by Jason's former TV wife Penny Mallory, whose story is an extraordinary one. From troubled beginnings as a homeless runaway, Penny managed to fulfil her dreams of becoming a top rally driver, before going on to become a TV presenter, a keynote speaker, a motivational coach and now author. There is much to admire about Penny Mallory, although Jason isn't sure about her driving a Tesla!
2 blokes and their guests talking stuff I love to hear
My mate put me onto the podcast 2 weeks back, he said I would love it, and he is right. I just can’t believe I hadn’t found it earlier. Anyway 2 weeks In and I am down to the last 5 episodes, which annoys me slightly as what happens then…??? I’m a lorry driver of 30 years so love the mix of stuff that covers so much I can relate to, and always nice to here the MK5 Cortina get a mention here and there. I have not listened to a single episode where I wasn’t interested in the guests story, and the content just covers so much!!!! I love the music links as I did 10 years as a truck driver In the rock n roll World, so there is so much in the shows I can relate to. Keep up the good work, such an enjoyable, entertaining and educational listen.
A solid 10/10, I hope there is much more coming!
Proper chat with fumes…
Love these podcasts, it’s fantastic to hear people’s stories with a flavour of automotive chat.
I listen to these shows while I travel and only with they were longer and not frequent!
Well done to all involved!
Funny and laidback: not stiff and starchy. Recommended!
