Danny O'Dwyer and I are doing a podcast about Formula 1. It's called Alt+F1.
YOU MEAN THE F1 VIDEO GAMES?
Nope, the real thing! With champagne and teammate disputes and way too much money! Although we'll probably wind up talking about racing games at some point, too. We are colossal nerds, after all.
WAIT BUT DREW, I DON'T KNOW ANYTHING ABOUT F1
That's great! Neither do I! Well, actually, I know just enough to know that the sport is WAY more exciting than what it looks like, which is cars going around a track. I'm hoping that by learning more about F1, it will increase my enjoyment of it even more. Maybe the same will happen for you!
Besides, did you know Danny is from Europe? Over there, people know TONS about F1, and love to tell other people about it, especially Americans. It'll be a learning experience for all of us! If all else fails, expect deep philosophical discussions about racing wheels.
WHEN CAN WE EXPECT THIS IN OUR EARHOLES?
Right now we're planning on recording our first episode on March 10. After that, we're thinking of doing an episode before and after each race, which, with races being every other weekend (roughly), means one episode per week (roughly).
The podcast will be posted on the Giant Bomb Premium Podcast feed, but will be free for everyone to listen to on the webpage itself, at least for the foreseeable future.
SOUNDS GREAT, HOW CAN I HELP?
I'm so glad you asked! We need two things: artwork for the podcast "album cover" and music for the intro. I figure the artwork should probably have the words "Alt+F1" on it, and the music should be original, but aside from that, go nuts! If we don't get any submissions, I'll probably just use that one Cake song and a screengrab from Days of Thunder.
