RC Podcasts – Action R/C

There are a few r/c podcasts out therefor those that have the spare time to listen. Now I can hear a bit of a ringing silence out there, so I shall explain.

A podcast generally speaking, is a radio show that is recorded, and released online at regular intervals. You can either have your podcast app automatically download them for you to listen to at your convenience, or listen to them online as you go.

The best thing about podcasts is that you can pick a topic of interest, and get a show just about it, be it Cars, True Crime, Comedy, Anime or RC Cars

I have a couple of RC podcasts i listen to at times. Big squid RC and Extra Lap RC among them. However these isn’t a lot of Australian Content out there. Enter the Action R/C Podcast, exploring the sport of R/C Car Racing with Scott Guyatt.

Many of you will recognise the name from racing in QLD, Articles in Racing Lines Magazine, and founder of my local club, Launceston R/C. Scott is back in the saddle now interviewing some very recognisable names in RC Racing including Andrew Gillott, Ray Munday and Luis Sola to name, well three!!

Where you can find the podcast varies, I have found it on Castbox that I use, as well as Podtail and Podbean. It should also be on Apple Podcasts and Spotify. Some links are below.

COVID-19 Lockdown Entertainment thanks to Ray Munday

COVID-19 sucks, we can all agree on that, and depending on your situation at home, the consequences of it suck even more.

For those that are suffering RC withdrawals, go on, put your hand up, there is plenty out there…. well Ray Munday has been posting a fix for this in the vintage form.

Ray has been digitizing a number of videos of older Australian race meets and championships and uploading them to the interweb. The videos are long, but for those who have been racing for a while, you should recognise a few names and faces.
