In my research for daily facts and figures I have come across the best one ever. From the people's dictionary, today is the day in 1853 when a dinner party was held inside the Iguanadon in Crystal Palace Park. We knew this! Mr Giggles took us to see those dinosaurs and told us that fact! In your face, Wikipedia! Eh-hem, here are some more F1 related things...

It is Allan McNish's birthday today, and as it is drawing nearer to January, he must be getting prepared for the Autosport International show. Just like DC, we have seen him up in Birmingham pretty much every year that we have been. Although we still haven't decided if we'll go this year. Anyway, here are some of the things we're talking about...

It is Bank Holiday Monday in the UK, granted to us because Boxing Day fell at the weekend. There is still little to go on in the news stakes, which is a breath of fresh air and means we have been able to get other stuff done. Here are some of the things we're talking about...

Wikipedia tells me that today is "Crate Day" - the day after Boxing Day when all the boxes were loaded into crates. I don't really understand - what boxes? what crates? But still, I do like the idea that soon every day will have an official name. Anyway, here are some of the things we're talking about...

Boxing Day traditionally means recovering from the day before and eating all that leftover turkey. It will be turkey sandwiches and turkey curry for everyone for weeks, I'm sure. We were right about the F1 news, though, there was very little. Here's what we're talking about...

Hello and Merry Christmas! It's the 25th December, and I think we are safe now, there should be no F1 news today. Instead, it's all about chocolate, mince pies, and tracking Santa. Still, there are a couple of things we've noticed on our travels around the web, and we'd like to share them with you...

Happy Christmas Eve to one and all. I trust there will be no news today, right? I do hope so. I can't quite believe all this news keeps on happening. Here at Sidepodcast, we treasure the Christmas week as one where everyone else stops and we keep on going. It's not fair if they keep on going as well. Anyway, enough whining from me, here are some of the things we're talking about:

It is ex-F1 driver birthday central today, with Bertrand Gachot celebrating his 47th birthday today. He seems to have raced for every team that has ever appeared in the Forgotten F1 Teams series, including but not limited to Onyx, Jordan, Coloni and Pacific. It also appears that Michele Alboreto was born on this day. The Italian raced for Ferrari and Tyrrell in the 80s, and died in 2001. Anyway, on to more current things:

Tuesday has dawned, and silly me for thinking the news had ended already. We are just a few days from Christmas now and yet there are still new things to discuss each and every day. Here are some of the things we've got on our list at the moment...

Daily: 21st December 2009

It is supposedly the shortest day of the year today, which means that after today, the evenings will be getting lighter again. This is good as seeing the darkness come in before 4pm each day is not much fun at all! It also means we are really into Christmas, and the F1 news should be slowing down. Good stuff! Meanwhile, here is what we're talking about today...

Sunday has dawned and there is mass confusion at Sidepodcast Towers as we have already done one podcast this weekend. We had to host an impromptu F1 Debrief yesterday due to the sheer volume of news that has come in since our last podcast. That means tonight we can concentrate solely on the Sidepoddie Awards show, as we had originally intended. Here's some info on what is in store tonight...

It's Saturday, and for about half the UK, it seems like it's snow day as well. I have only seen the occasional flake but we're hearing about all sorts of various weather reports from around the country. I wonder whether it really will be a white Christmas. Anyway, here are some of the F1 related things we're talking about...

Daily: 18th December 2009

It is Friday, and we are still waiting for the F1 news to die down this week. There have been breakout threads flying all over the place, and I don't know about you, but I'm looking forward to the weekend for a rest! Yesterday was all about another driver announcement but here are some of the other things we're talking about...

It is Thursday and whilst that is usually a bad day around Sidepodcast Towers, it has been tempered during this off season with the ever-excellent Thursday Thoughts. Today it is Gavin's turn to host the question, so keep an eye on his blog for your prompt this week. Now onto some F1 things we're talking about...

Daily: 16th December 2009

Today is apparently the Independence Day of Bahrain, which has less to do with Will Smith defending the planet from aliens and more to do with the kingdom standing on it's own two feet. Very good stuff. Now, onto Formula 1 news. As we were saying in the comments yesterday, December has never been so busy in F1, so we'd best make the most of it.

Daily: 15th December 2009

We have arrived at Tuesday, and my first job is to remind you that the deadline for the season review submissions is up! Technically it was yesterday, but I forgot to remind you, so I've extended it by a day. If you haven't already, and want to call in your thoughts on the season just past, there are more details here. Now, let's get on with the good stuff...

Daily: 14th December 2009

Another week is beginning, then, and we are here at Monday. As I have been paying very little attention to Formula 1 over the weekend, I think it's time to take a glance around the blog world and see what everyone has been writing about. Let's take a look...

Daily: 13th December 2009

I'm writing this slightly ahead of schedule as I have no way of knowing when we'll be back from the Sidepodxmas party. That means I only have half a days worth of goings on to share with you, but I will do my best. Here are some of the things we're talking about...

It's Saturday at long last, and the day of the Sidepodmeetup/real life Christmas party. We know many of you aren't able to make it to the party itself, but we'll keep it as interactive as possible, and I'll be glued to the comments, as usual. Anyway, it was a busy week in F1, so here's some related stuff we're talking about:

Daily: 11th December 2009

Hello to all! It was a busy day yesterday, wasn't it? All that Formula 1 news sneaking out as we were busy digesting the last lot! That is good for my daily post though, it means lots of lovely self promotion. Let's get on with that now...
