    Green Hell Secrets Exposed with Misha Charoudin

    Green Hell Secrets Exposed with Misha Charoudin

    He's garnered over 1.2m subscribers with his top-quality content filmed from the mighty Nürburgring Nordschleife, and now the one and only @mgcharoudin is the guest of my latest podcast. What I love about Misha is that he's a true driver at heart – performing up to 1000 white-knuckle laps of the iconic 13-mile race track he calls home each year, in some incredibly varied and capable machinery. In this podcast, we talk his early days, the evolution of the last nine years living inside 'The Green Hell', and compare notes on racing now that he's delved into competitive motorsport.

    Mat Armstong's Crash Course

    Mat Armstong's Crash Course

    I was lucky enough to recently visit the one and only Mat Armstrong's garage, to see just what it is that makes this YouTube sensation tick. I check out some of the latest exotic cars that he’s saving from the scrap heap, and hear more about his fascinating past and ambitious future plans. Mat is one of the nicest, most genuine guys on the scene, so it was great to finally see where most of his incredibly popular YouTube content is filmed from for myself. Thanks so much to Mat for having me down, and stay tuned for much more content with him very soon.

    Polce Intereceptors - The Real Story

    Polce Intereceptors - The Real Story

    In my latest 'Some Say...' podcast, I sit down with the one and only @BenPearson1965 – one of the most familiar faces from the iconic Channel 5 'Police Interceptors' TV series, to get a candid and no-holes-barred insight into what really goes on behind the scenes with the British Police. Ben really did see it all during his time on the force, and thankfully, was willing to share some of the grittiest, surprising and sometimes alarming anecdotes with me during our chat.

    Meet My Top Gear Boss - Andy Wilman (Part 2)

    Meet My Top Gear Boss - Andy Wilman (Part 2)

    "If you enjoyed part 1, brace for impact. Wilman tells us what really went down in the Deep South on the American Special, the Argentina debacle, why & how Top Gear became a hit, Clarkson vs Special Forces. How Wilman identifies as David Brent. I also included some revenge from the editors whose eyes bled on many a late night working with Wilman into the small hours to whittle the show into the masterpiece we wanted to see on Sunday at 8pm. This one's for the Top Gear die hards!!!! :)

    Meet My Top Gear Boss - Andy Wilman (Part 1)

    Meet My Top Gear Boss - Andy Wilman (Part 1)

    YOU'RE FIRED!!!! No he never said that. But working for Andy was a rite of passage and a PHD in film-making. No two days were the same. He was a man of few words and I can honestly say that I think we spoke more during this podcast than in the 8 years I worked on Top Gear. Wilman, as we know him, is a fascinating character and hopefully I teased out enough of his personality to give you some idea of what he's like. Enigmatic, a perfectionist, inspirational, ruthless, charming, hyper-focused and a brilliant creator. Like Jeremy, his best mate from school, Wilman has a demanding work ethic that can be tough but usually rewarding in equal measure. From childhood prodigy to failed actor to TV presenter (naked and otherwise), to Executive Producer (we argued on the meaning) of Top Gear, Grand Tour and Clarkson's Farm - Wilman is a very rare human being and I'm glad that despite our courtroom antics, I think we are mates. It meant a great deal to me that he agreed to do this interview. Hope you enjoy it. Thank you for the great times Wilman.

Some say…

He can’t do basic maths and that he still only knows two facts about ducks that are wrong…all we know is…he’s NOT the Stig, but Ben Collin’s who can put together a proper podcast.
