Love the show

Gives me a newfound respect for the efforts the team undertakes to make the best sim experience possible.

The staff has a podcast

Downshift has the opportunity to be something really insightful and fun. Staff is doing Throw n go competition, would be fun to hear about the comedy that happens in the office on things like that. Would also be cool to have it on youtube and do some video like Dirty Mo Media does... some screenshots of Nim and Tyler doing protest reviews lol, just seeing the office dynamics would be eye opening for your customer base. Could also use that youtube platform to show top 10 videos etc. Maybe you can get some guests? Grab some audio live during the day in carb cup, or GT3, whatever. Anyway, it's early for the podcast timeline, looking forward to the evolution of this. -Hammer
