    Artyom of GOHARD Russian Street Drifting Film Makers | The Goodest Cast EP.61

    Artyom and his brother have been making movies most of their lives. Once they found Street Drifting in Russia they went all the way in. They turned their videography business that used to do weddings and commercials into a media factory for underground street drifters all over Russia to be put on display. Their oldest movie they uploaded to youtube was over 12 years ago and they haven’t stopped since. Artyom now drifts himself and tells stories of how they got where they are now and some of the crazy things they had to do to get there. The cinematic films of street drifting all over Russia are something people watch all over the world. We are lucky they have gone as far as they have to put out these videos that we can all watch for free.

    Rhys Conklin 16 year old drifter driving with RTR | Goodest Cast EP.59

    Rhys Conklin 16 year old drifter driving with RTR | Goodest Cast EP.59

    Rhys Conklin is a 16 year drifter who started drifting years ago way before he could even dream of having a driver's license. Thanks to some interesting contacts and a super supportive family he got to chase his dream from an early age. At 16 he’s doing some serious driving with the RTR guys and not only that but handling the business side of things also. We talk about what it takes to deal with school and balancing other things in life. We talk about avoiding burnout when your life is all drifting all the time. We talk about the future and sim drifting of course. We even talk about how fortunate he is to be in the situation where his whole family is supporting his goals and how unique that is in drifting at this time. I’m excited to see what Rhys can do over the next few years.

    EP.57 Aaron Leavitt of Drift Team Animal Style and Flash Video Magazine

    Aaron Leavitt is not only my Drift Team Animal Style team mate but he’s also one of my close friends. We shared an insane month in LA and felt like we had to do a podcast to talk about it. We’ve experienced some crazy things in all these years of drifting but this was definitely one of the craziest months of our lives. Aaron has been on the podcast four times now, and it’s always a good time. Crack a claw and join us for story time.

    EP.56 Benson and Nadine Hsu West Coast Drifting Legends

    EP.56 Benson and Nadine Hsu West Coast Drifting Legends

    Benson and Nadine are two west coast drifting legends. They met through Nissan and S Chassis meetups in Southern California in the late 90’s and continued to learn about car style, and drifting together. They went from tuners to professional drifters and parents. Their wedding was covered in Super Street and featured their S13s which is one of the most iconic car wedding shoots in the US. Benson and Nadine were competitors in the first two years of Formula Drift. Benson shipped his caged street S13 with a stock sr20det, including a t25 turbo to run against race cars at the 2004 season of FD. Nadine drove her s13 in FD as well and is one of the first professional female drifters in the US. They’ve both been featured in a few top tier magazines when car mags were the pinnacle of tuner culture. Nadine was even on the cover of Carboy Magazine. Nadine is a published author and has been fighting for women to be equal in motorsport since she started.

    Together they have influenced drifting and car culture for well over two decades. Not to mention their Sileighty Mania Podcast which has some of the most influential people in drifting telling the stories of the origins of US drifting.  We’re doing a crossover so check out my episode where they interview me.
