“…And that is all I want, in a camera, in my phone, in my pocket, for almost nothing…”
So said Harty on the last podcast (#245), when we were discussing the need for a compact, easy-to-use, definitely internet-enabled, high quality camera.
Something that if it wasn’t...
I was (not) seriously thinking of calling this post “What to do if your missus shoves the kids at you this weekend because she’s had to put up with them all week and it’s only halfway through the school holidays so there’s still another week to go…”
There has been a lot of bitching and moaning in the last couple of days. It’s revolved around Holden’s decision to axe another 400 jobs, and as usual, it’s been fed furiously by the mainstream media – creating conflict where there was really only a difference of opinion and interpretation.
Let’s make it perfectly clear, as far as V8 Supercars (supposedly the best touring-car/tintop competition in the world at present) are concerned, there would be no history, no Bathurst 50th anniversary last year and quite simply, no V8 Supercar or Australian Touring Car Championship, past or present, without Ford &...
The Australian Grand Prix has been & gone already – and in 3 short days we’ll all be getting ready for the second round in Malaysia!
But there was definitely something missing, something that we’d got used to going to view on YouTube the day after every Grand Prix for the last 12 rounds in 2012…

Radio HOTLAP is available free on the Apple iTunes Music Store, as a podcast.
Our World Headquarters are located in a rather nice part of Adelaide, where regular production takes place. Unless we're somewhere else, which is often the case.
If you ask nicely, you may be allowed to be part of our live audience.
Beyond Episode 200
There comes a time, in this case after six years, with over 240 episodes recorded in 10 different countries, 300+ guests and 220 continuous hours of recording, that we feel its time to go commercial. With over 55,000 viewers, since March 2011, we get some serious exposure. So we thought a magazine to fill in the gaps would be nice.
A Word of Warning
Our firm policy that we don't edit a show once its recorded is because it detracts from its natural conversational character in the first place. Commercial partners and alliances will have to adhere to policy and whilst we'll do the best to accommodate you and make you feel loved you have no control of how we do things. Just so we're clear on that :)
