Favorite Sportsman Drag Racing Podcast Episodes

If you know me, you know that I’m a huge fan of the medium of podcasting: on both ends.  Jared Pennington and I release a weekly podcast of our own, The Sportsman Drag Racing Podcast, and I consume a multitude of podcasts myself as well.  Awhile back, I detailed some of my favorite podcasts here on the blog.  

I’m also regularly asked – both by longtime listeners of the Sportsman Drag Racing Podcast, and by new listeners who just found the show – what episodes of our podcast are my favorite?  In 150+ shows, we’ve had some that I’m pretty proud of, for various reasons. We’ve also, admittedly, had some swing and miss moments! Here are some of my personal favorite episodes, broken down into 4 categories: Impactful interviews with amazing guests, thought provoking episodes in which we did our best to tackle some of the tough issues facing our sport, funny & entertaining episodes, and hot button topics (that admittedly might be contemporary to the time of publication).
