After the marathons of the last few shows, Jules Cisek finally gets a breather while Martin Darlington and Jim Race decide to play catch-up. We review the Aragon WSBK & WSS races, chat a bit about Knockhill BSB and look ahead to the Cathedral that is Assen MotoGP. Ahhhh.

Monster show. Jules Cisek anchors Martin Darlington (returning triumphantly from the GPs at Silverstone), Jim Race (returning triumphantly from the IOMTT), and Gonçalo Silva (returning triumphantly from the hospital…). Join us for a 3.5 hour tour of MotoGP, WSBK at Misano, and Isle of Man coverage sprinkled with interviews, sounds, coffee, and beer.
With *Massive* thanks to everyone in MotoPodLand, Jim Race is prowling
a tiny Isle in the Irish Sea to bring you his best impression of the
IOMTT experience. Martin Darlington joins us for the call, along with
a coterie of fantastic guests. Absolutely worth a listen. Maybe two or
three. Wait until next week... We're not even close to done with the

Lots of interviews this week with WSBK personnel: "Lele", Xaus, Rae, Checa, Haga, Sykes, Aitchison, Rolfo, and Pedercini as well as MotoPod rockstars Nick and Todd Grice.

Jim Race and Jules Cisek go mostly electric with a long and fascinating chat with Azhar Hussain plus short bits on the ground at Infineon with AJ Rosensky and Brian Richardson followed by a review of the new Mark Neale documentary: Charge! To balance things out for the ICEheads, we then switch gears to MotoGP, WSBK, BSB, AMA and wrap up with two great interviews with Eraldo Ferraci and PJ Jacobsen.

* Kickstarter shoutouts!
Jim Race and Jules Cisek are rejoined by Martin Darlington this week. The Kickstarter shoutouts go out and we listen to a great conversation Jim had with David Emmett of Motomatters.com. Jim then splits leaving Jules and Martin to deal with Stonergate and Limoncelligate… Last but certainly not least a quick chat Jim did with AMA Superbike Champion Josh Hayes.
* James Whitham

* Mark Miller
* Michael Hannas
Jules Cisek and Jim Race review Monza and bits of news here and there. Fantastic interviews with Eurosport commentator James Whitham, Crescent Suzuki's John Hopkins, TT bound Mark Miller, and TTXGP/AMA racer Michael Hannas.
Many thanks to the entire MotoPod community for making our kickstarter project successful! Jim is going to the IOMTT!
Finally, a special treat, a song written by Mark Miller and performed and produced by Jon Wadley.
Jim Race and Jules Cisek completely ruin the show with mindless banter, only to be saved by some excellent on-the-ground reporting once again by Gonçalo Silva at the Estoril MotoGP round with awesome talks with Cal, Eskil and Kenny. Plus remember, if you can, please help get MotoPod to the IOMTT. We've got no backup plan. You, are It.

* Gonx interviews Bautista and Lorenzo
* Longest outtake EVER
Mark Bracks joins Jim Race and Jules Cisek to talk about MotoGP @ Jerez and Estoril, BSB @ Brands and WSBK @ Monza. Gonçalo Silva talks with Alvaro Bautista and Jorge Lorenzo. Plus the longest outtake ever (so keep listening after we say ciao :D - Parental Guidance Suggested)
Jim Race and Jules Cisek dash through the Assen WSBK results scattered amongst talks with Mark Miller (currently at the Isle of Man for TT promotion), Ed Haazer, a "regular guy" AFM club racer as well as a quick bit from Eurosport 2's James Whitham. A chaotic show, just as we like them. The first round of BSB at Brands Hatch is coming up this weekend as well as Estoril MotoGP.. Enjoy!
