MotoPod, The Motorcycle Roadracing Podcast, is an internet radio show dedicated to MotoGP and motorcycle racing news, interviews, commentary, opinion and rumour! Our primary focus is MotoGP, the premier class of the FIM World Championship Motorcycle Grand Prix Road Racing Series but we often have occasional sidetrips into the world of the FIM SBK World Superbike, Supersport and many other forms of two wheeled motorsport including Real Roads racing. Find out what’s going on in the sports that is the pinnacle of motorsports, Grand Prix Motorcycle Road Racing! New episodes every week.
Harry Lloyd and Dave Neal join up ahead of the British GP to talk about the most recent signings and rumors as Silly Season continues to putter along. The show has a very British flavour what with BSB, SIlverstone and a plethora of British riders announcing their 2016 plans. Luckily Jim Race helps keep the balance as he chats with WSS winner PJ Jacobsen. Be sure to check out 'Hitting The Apex' in cinemas and on DVD/BluRay when it hits screens early September.

Martin Darlington and Dave Neal come together for a bit of a big one. The action at Brno might not have been as close as everyone was hoping, but the second half of the championship looks set to be a barn stormer. We also bring you the second half of Scott Bolton's MotoAmerica interviews and Phil Hall, Jules Cisek and Jim Race attend a 'gathering' and had a catch up and get a bit too excited about some Kawasakis.

Harry Lloyd and Martin Darlington sort of come together to talk about the IndyGP. There were three exciting races, including perhaps the oddest Moto3 race there has ever been. We had Scott Bolton on the ground who got the chance to not only chat with some riders, but also have a unique experience. He and Jim Race talking about the MotoAmerica race as well as Scott's weekend, four hosts for the price of one! The first of Scott's interviews are out this episode with the remainder coming next week.
Martin Darlington gets full creative control for an episode and takes MotoPod in a unique direction. A big thank you to Cameron of Life of Caesar for playing along and helping Martin achieve his mad dreams. There's more than just British bashing as the subject does eventually turn to motorcycle racing including interviews with the factory Kawasaki WSBK riders.
Harry Lloyd and Dave Neal chat about the Suzuka 8 Hour which saw some MotoGP stars secure a job for life, while others maybe rethought their return to racing. There's also the first round of musical chairs in the Moto3 paddock as silly season begins to get into gear, especially with former Forward Racing riders.

A weekend full of Superbike action saw two riders, and bikes, take their first doubles of the year. Join Harry Lloyd for a summary of the racing in Laguna Seca and Brands Hatch where a Welshman and an Australian dominated the day in both series. The first bits of silly season are starting to trickle out, but with all the factory seats tied down there's not much happening. Two excellent race weekends were unfortunately tarnished by the unfortunate deaths of two Spanish riders in MotoAmerica.
A very Spanish MotoPod as Len Padilla and Harry Lloyd meet up in a hotel lobby to talk about motorcycle racing, as you do! BSB continues to produce interesting rules all in the name of 'the show'. Do rules that make for more exciting ever go to far or is it all ok if the on track action is elbow bashing excitement? Of course there's also the Sachsenring to talk about where Marquez returned to form. They may not have been three exciting races, but the second half of the season is looking close.
Harry Lloyd and Dave Neal are back together, at least for a little bit, to talk about the racing in BSB as well as some MotoGP news that should surprise no one. One more MotoGP race before the summer break and the unstoppable open of silly season.
It all comes full circle. Ten years on and MotoPod celebrates ten years on podcasting with the same race it all started with; Assen. What a weekend it was, three highly dramatic races and yet again the final chicane brought up even more drama. Whole families have been torn apart by Rossi v Marquez and that's why it takes Martin Darlington and the long awaited Jules Cisek over two hours to talk about it all. Settle in and celebrate turning ten in the best way possible; talking about top class motorcycle racing.
Harry Lloyd and Len Padilla come together to make MotoPod probably the most Spanish it has ever been, ever if one of them wasn't in Spain. It a Superbike packed episode with WSBK in Misano and BSB at Snetterton to talk about. In both series the Kawasaki seems to be the bike to have in both series, unless it's bursting into flames! There's also the second half of Scott Bolton's interviews from MotoAmerica and these are certainly some names to watch in the future.
