Daily: 4th January 2009

Today was looking to be pretty low on F1 related fun, until we discovered that Fantasy Racers was up and running for 2009. There was suddenly a flurry of action as we tried to think up some new team names, decide that our old names will do, create the Sidepodcast league, and get all signed up.

Daily: 3rd January 2009

Ah yes, your friendly daily post from Sidepodcast. I've no idea what's going on in the F1 world at present, but thankfully Christine does. According to F1 Minute, newsworthy topics include Paul di Resta and Michael Schumacher.

I hope everyone had a good New Year's Day. We've just heard some fireworks going off, meaning that someone is celebrating exactly 24 hours too late. Bless them. It's been a quiet day in F1, which means there's only one news story to talk about, but we've been filling our time with other things.

Daily: 1st January 2009

It's arrived! No more nostalgia from us, we can now look forward to the year ahead with anticipation and I would almost say glee. There is no excuse for quiet F1 news days anymore, either, with launches happening throughout the month, then testing, then the season begins. I get ahead of myself, though. Here's what's going on at the moment.

Daily: 31st December 2008

So here we are, the last day of 2008. It's been a bumper year, packed full of highs and lows, and we've been making our way everything that occurred in our end of year series. The F1 news is slowly picking up though, and soon we will be diving head first into 2009.

Daily: 30th December 2008

With Honda Racing seemingly back in the Classified Ads, the news has died down again somewhat, but that doesn't stop us in the comments. In Sidepodcast Towers, we've been working on some of the 2008 In... series, and forward planning for 2009. I know, us and forward planning, who would have thought?

Things are gradually picking up again in the Formula 1 world, which is good because we are reduced to playing golf games. Although, the golf game is quite good, so perhaps that's not a bad thing.

Daily: 28th December 2008

Ah-ha, we have some F1 news at last. Just as we were starting to wonder whether F1 had been a simple figment of our imagination, we are blessed with a serious rumour. Okay, it's nothing concrete, but it's a start, isn't it?

Daily: 27th December 2008

Shh. No one will notice that this post is going up so late. In fact, things are very quiet around Sidepodcast at the moment, so perhaps no one really will. Here at Sidepodcast Towers we're working hard on some behind the scenes bits and pieces, and hurrying to try and catch up with all the year end stuff we want to do. Damn all those mince pies being so distracting!

Daily: 26th December 2008

Boxing Day is traditional for sitting around, eating leftovers, and watching dodgy Xmas television. If you're near to your computer while all that is going on, then Sidepodcast.com is a brilliant place to hang out.

Daily: 25th December 2008

We've been live commenting Santa as he makes his way across the globe, and that doesn't stop now. He's just passed through the UK, and is heading towards the Americas. The chances of there being any real F1 news today is slim, but that doesn't stop us trying!

Daily: 24th December 2008

Ah, it's Christmas Eve. There is undoubtedly going to be little F1 news over the next few days, so we are keeping each other company in the comments and finding much more important things to talk about.

Daily: 23rd December 2008

The fruits of our labours at the Sidepodparty are beginning to come together, as the final Debrief of 2008 has been released on the site. There's a special Christmas carol-shaped treat for anyone listening to the end of the show. Don't forget the brilliant out-take as well.

Daily: 22nd December 2008

Another late daily post, but this time we've got an excuse. The Sidepodparty was a raging success last night, or at least I hope it was. From our point of view, we got the show recorded, opened some presents and danced a conga dressed as a panda. What more could you ask for?

Daily: 21st December 2008

Christmas is slowly creeping closer and closer, and today it's the Sidepodcast Christmas Party, or the Sidepodparty, if you will. There's plenty of planning going on behind the scenes, but feel free to add your thoughts to the Wiki.

Daily: 20th December 2008

Having returned from an impromptu continuation of the Sidepodtour, we're spending the evening catching up with the comments and any news we might have missed. It looks like there are a couple of things to talk about, so let's get on with it...

Daily: 19th December 2008

Here at Sidepodcast Towers, we are still reeling from the shock of seeing Barrichello back in the news. Seriously, I thought he'd gone underground and changed his name or something. Thankfully that was not the case, and he has finally broken cover to tell all.

Daily: 18th December 2008

There have been some interesting snippets in the Formula 1 world today, things that don't necessarily make an entire news item but get the mind thinking. There have also been some good things in the comments, especially this first item...

Daily: 17th December 2008

It's been a quiet day, relatively speaking. Buemi is dominating the test sessions, no matter what car he's in, so there's not very much to say on that front. There are other motorsport topics in the minds of those in the know, though, including...

Daily: 16th December 2008

Late again, oh well, I agree with Lou who said the day only starts when you wake up anyway. That should get me out of it this time. There seemed to be an entire discussion going on yesterday about ways for "me" to conceal his identity in public, including dressing up as a giant panda, as the Stig, and bizarrely, as Batman.
