Another long show today with a long chat with Jules about the Championship thus far. Also some newsy bits and some general chit chat. And World Superbike as well! Plus, don't forget that the MotoGP race will be on CBS in the United States this weekend! Check your local listings.

Episode 135: Assen Wrapup with Jules and Long Winded Stoner Justification/Explanation

* MotoGP On Broadcast TV in the USA!
* We Never Said Stoner Sucks!
* Assen Wrapup
* Track Day Mea Culpa

OK, we've got a really long show this week, almost two hours. But Jules and I were having such a great time with the call that we didn't want it to end! I think you'll like it and, hey, it will last one more commute or whatever you do when you listen to the show! We've got it all this week, a tiny bit of news, a wrapup of Assen, Jules and I explaining (again) our Stoner position, and a little lesson learned out on the track on my SV650. Good stuff, I think you'll like it!

Episode 134: Donington Wrapup with Jules and Half Assen Preview

* Listener Events
* Assen News
* Listener E-mail
* Call with Jules About Donington
* Shout out to The Hornrims!

I have to admit, the Assen jokes never get old. What can I say? I'm juvenile and immature. So, all two of you that actually read the show notes, I hope you have the same childish sense of humor. In any case, we've got a big show today with some news, some event notices, a listener e-mail, a long call with Jules about Donington, all wrapped up with a plug for MotoGPod listener Joe Popp's band The Hornrims! Check it out, I think you'll like the show.

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!

* Call with Jules Wrapping Up Le Mans and Stoner's Season

Another great chat with Jules this week about Le Mans and various things, including some spicy rumors and secret tidbits! I think you'll enjoy the call. Before we get to that, there's a couple of news items to cover, including the very sad death of Robert Dunlop.
