Welcome to Sunday. We are halfway through the weekend, and so far I've had a good one, have you? The World Cup is still going strong, but we are not all about football here at Sidepodcast. In fact, we shouldn't really be about football at all, so here are some of the other things that we're talking about:

  • Let's start with the most important thing - Mr C has been talking to Joe once again and they've come up with a fabulous podcast covering many, many topics. My favourite bit is about the driver at Renault. Good times!
  • Chandhok has gone and got himself a regular column on Reuters. As if we didn't love the chap enough as it is, he's written a round up of all the action from Canada from his point of view, plus given us the chance to comment on it. Lovely stuff. At the time of writing, there was only one comment though. I'm sure we can do better than that.
  • It is Superleague Formula day today, and I've noted that Franck Montagny qualified 12th. At least I think he did. It's hard to find the information on the official site and nowhere else seems to have it. So, our man is 12th, which is behind Bourdais. Boo! It will all be live streamed on the site, so if you're around and fancy watching a crazy motorsport race that doesn't make much sense, I highly recommend it.
  • In non-sporting news, yesterday's Doctor Who was quite an epic first part of a double episode series finale. I'll do no spoilers here, of course, but I have written my thoughts on the episode here, whilst Lukeh has got an excellent summary on his Doctor-dedicated blog here. Make sure you read them both and let us know what you thought of the episode (if you're a fan, that is!)

That should do it for now. Let us know how you're spending this fine Sunday, either outside if the weather is good, or tucked up indoors if it is not. Or maybe tucked up indoors even if the weather is good. There's no shame in that. Let us know, and I will see you in the comments.
