Episode 132: Catalunya Wrapup with Darren Carpenter and some Senseless Blathering

* Blathering
* Long Call with Darren Chatting About the Catalunya GP
* Editorial: Passing and Pizza, WTF?

Bob is back, and no, he wasn't in rehab! We've got a long call with Darren Carpenter talking about the Catalunya MotoGP race, good stuff! We follow that up with a somewhat different feature, an editorial/commentary about passing in MotoGP compared to pizza and somewhat to other (much lesser) forms of motorsport, like, say, Formula 1. Interesting stuff, well worth a listen!

Episode 126: The Championship So Far

* Bob is back!
* Championship Review with Darren Carpenter

Bob is back from a work & vacation related little break, and we get right back into the swing of things with a great chat with Darren Carpenter. We mostly covered the MotoGP championship so far, not so much a race review of the Grand Prix of China, but more like an analysis of the top ten riders in the standings and some opinions and chit chat. It's a long call, but it's interesting stuff!
