Gareth Jones On Speed Extra Info:
Gareth Jones On Speed began in 2005 as a bit of fun for TV presenter Gareth Jones, who wanted to create a kind of “Fantasy Football” type show for cars & motorsport. News, the humour, songs, games, sketches, reviews and interviews gives this podcast an irreverent and entertaining feel. Since then the show has steadily built up a loyal base of subscribers until it is now the most popular audio podcast about cars in the world. (ref: iTunes ‘automotive’ category) This year, big name motoring manufacturers and media groups have caught onto the power of podcasting and many have launched their own. However, “Gareth Jones On Speed” continues to beat them in the ratings, even though it continues to be made by a small independent TV and podcasting company, with no sponsors, no fuss, no noise… just a show people want to listen to. Primarily an audio podcast, occasionally however the schedule includes video editions.
