A Fast & Furious quarantine podcast, by Jamey Hampton and Penelope Phippen
Episode 26: Special Episode - CRASH-A-RAMA
In a strange and delightful culmination of our silly Fast & Furious themed show, Jamey has come full circle by becoming an actual race car driver, entering their first racing event, CRASH-A-RAMA last month. In this episode, Penelope asks all the juicy questions about what it was like being BEHIND the wheel for a change!
The story of the race would be a lot cooler with the corresponding imagery, so here are a few links of the car, the boat and the races to help you form your mental picture.

Episode 25: Vin Diesel & the Rock's "Candy Ass" Feud
This is an EMERGENCY episode that Penelope convened after Vin Diesel recently posted on Instagram, imploring the Rock to come back to the Fast franchise for the last installment. Together, Penelope and Jamey go into some of the finer points of the famous feud between Vin and the Rock, including lots of funny quotes and a little bit of armchair psychology.
Happy Thanksgiving, friends! Hope you can take a little break from your own family drama to listen in on Vin Diesel's family drama instead!
Episode 24: Spy Racers: Mexico (Episodes 1-3)
Jamey and Penelope discuss the premise of the 4th season of Spy Racers, with the crew now on the run from the agency.

Episode 21: Stationary & Sassy Presents: Emily Gorcenski!
We are so thrilled to introduce a very special guest: our friend Emily Gorcenski, a genius of data science, activism and, you might not have known this, but also CARS! She came on to chat with us about cars & street racing, the culture around car movies when The Fast and The Furious came out in 2001, and to tell us about some fascinating FF-inspired German b-movies. (She even managed to find a Corona to drink in Berlin while she chatted with us, which I'm told is quite a feat!)
