#13: Jamey Price - @jameypricephoto
Jamey Price is a Charlotte-based motorsport photojournalist who covers all fast moving things, from Formula 1 to Thoroughbred racehorses. Today on the show we have a conversation with Jamey about how he got into the profession and how he manages his business. We talk about the 40-hour workday that is covering a 24-hour endurance race, how he deals with stolen work and how he was mistaken as an Audi spy photographer by the Prosche Team at Le Mans.

#11: The Venerable Mr. Ecclestone (Part 1)

His was the vision that took Formula 1, once the domain of men covered in...
#10: Fiddle Brakes and Bargeboards
Something strange was going on with the Mclarens of David Coulthard and Mika Häkkinen in the 1997 Formula 1 season. Different from other cars, their brake glowed orange in fast corner. The glowing brakes prompted questions from fans and team alike. Questions that would be answered when an eagle eyed photographer, Darren Heath, shoved his camera in the footwell of a stranded MP4/12. Today on the show we talk about the story behind those glowing brakes, as well as a few other favorite terms...
#9: The Dominance Problem
Motorsport tends to have periods of time where one team or constructor is always on the top step of the podium. Is that a problem, or is it just the nature of the sport? We try to answer that question by looking at a number of dominant cars across the racing spectrum. In this episode we look at Audi's domination at Le Mans with their R8, R10, R15 and R18 prototypes, the revolutionary STP-Paxton Turbocar from the 1967-68 Indy 500 and several Formula 1 cars, including Mclaren's MP4/4,...
