About the show

There have never been three more sophisticated, informed, or serious MotoGP commentators than those screaming bastards on Italian TV. Or those stuttering Pom pumpernickels who keep saying “penultimate” because its fancier than “second-last”. They’re pretty good at this MotoGP commentary stuff. And there’s a few Spanish commentators who are the top of their game.
We’re not them.

  • Moto PG Ep 108: Where Were The Elephants?

    September 27th, 2023  |  1 hr 47 mins

    They said it would be a disaster. They said it wouldn't go ahead. They said the track wasn't fit for purpose. Well WTF would they know? The lads are joined by India correspondent Mahendra to go over what turned out to be a fantastic Indian Moto GP. Sure there was a distinct and disappointing lack of elephants and a disturbingly high ratio of grandmothers in the crowd, but that didn't detract from what was a great first up effort for the world's most populous nation. It also inspired one of Borries' best poems yet and if you're a regualr listener you know how good that needs to be. (If you're not a regular listener, become one. And join our Patreon Pit Crew. And buy Borrie's books. Or just send us money, we don't care. As long as we're getting paid.) Stop looking at this now and press play. What are you waiting for?

  • Moto PG Ep 107: 'I've never had a lentil on my face...'

    September 13th, 2023  |  2 hrs 3 mins

    'The worst race of the season' and 'a wake up call for rest of the paddock'. Did somebody get out of the wrong side of the bed or does Tugs have a point? It's not the happiest episode of the Greatest Motorcycling Podcast in the Universe but it's not all doom and gloom either. There's the Captain's Instructions, Rossi's letter, Borrie's Poem (which is actually a song this week) and a supermodel joins the show for a chat. But if you don't press play you won't know what any of it is about so get on with it. Oh, and buy a ticket in the Ohvale raffle. It's a good cause and a hell of a prize. In fact, it might be the only way the Phillip Island experience could be bearable as a spectator.

  • Moto PG Ep 106: Jeremy McWilliams

    September 7th, 2023  |  33 mins 48 secs

    ​Bonus time Bitches....He's raced everything from Aprilia 250cc smokers to American baggers, and won on them all. He even wins despite being 163 years old. And he kissed Scarlett Johanson in a movie. And after all that, he still spoke to us. So click play for a brilliant chat with the legend that is Jeremy McWilliams.

  • Moto PG Ep 105: O Captain! My Captain!

    September 6th, 2023  |  1 hr 41 mins

    "It's outrageous, egregious, preposterous!" In times of crisis we often turn to Seinfeld for guidance and after the shock of the Captain's win at Catalunya it is the words of Jackie Chiles above that soothe. Who could have predicted the Captain actually winning a race? Apparently quite a few of you according to our Facebook competition last week but apart from those lunatics, nobody. Not that it matters to the intrepid crew of the greatest motorcycling podcast in the universe, though. The boys still find plenty of interesting stuff going on elsewhere in the world of motorcycling both on and off the track. From Borrie's poem to Rossi's letter and everything in between, Ep 105 is everything you've come to expect from these three reprobates. (Hint, if you're new here we have two tips: the material within is NSFW. And buy Borrie's books. They're good.) Enjoy, bitches!

  • Moto PG Ep 104: Choomlas Make Life Better

    August 23rd, 2023  |  1 hr 54 mins

    Tug is out so Simmo is in this week as the lads try to make sense of what happened in Austria at the weekend. Can they solve Jack MIller's seemingly unsolvable problems? No, but they wont let that stop them trying. It's just one area of racing they know nothing about but speculate on regardless in episode 104 of the greatest motorcycling podcast in the universe. There's also the usual favourites with The Captain's Letter (insert foghorn sound here), Rossi's instructions, Borrie's poem and more. Press play to hear it all. Then perhaps take some time to think about your life choices.

  • Moto PG Ep 103: Speaking Sense with Simon Crafar

    August 16th, 2023  |  1 hr 25 mins

    Sense is something you don't hear a lot of in these parts - except when friend of the pod and legend of racing, TV and humanity itself Simon Crafar drops by to talk all things Moto GP. It's always a treat to hear from one of the most knowledgeable and thoughtful analysts in the business and episode 103 is no exception. Oh, and Tug and Boris were there too. So sit back and enjoy the wisdom of one of the sport's very best then go and sign up for ourt Patreon Pit Crew so we can keep bringing the quality to you (and the money to us!).

  • Moto PG Ep 102: I Remember The First Time I Saw My Father's Testicles

    August 9th, 2023  |  2 hrs 1 min

    Sometimes the title of the episode has something to do with the episode Itself. Other times, something so absurd has been said that it needs to be highlighted by being the show title. This is a case of the latter. And besides, it helps distract from the stunning reality that the Captain somehow found the winner's circle at Silverstone. So let's not speak of it. Let's instead concentrate on the knife fight that is Moto 3 and the glory of Cheryl not only being at the track but meeting her hero Jake Dixon. That's the story of the week and we chat to Cheryl to get the low down on a great weekend.

  • Moto PG Ep 101: The Most Disgusting Poem Ever

    August 2nd, 2023  |  1 hr 4 mins

    "That," said Borrie's wife, "is the most disgusting poem you've ever written. Surely you are not going to read that out?" But he did. And she was right. And you, too, will hear it on episode 101 and you, too, will be shocked because, even for this group of reprobates, it is bad. But that is also what makes it good, no? I mean, who listens to this podcast for the high literary standards? That's right, no-one. Certainly not you. So stop pretending you're thinking about it and just press play already. We both know you want to.

  • Moto PG Ep 100: And They Said We'd Never Make It

    July 14th, 2023  |  1 hr 40 mins

    Well bitches, it's hard to tell who's more surprised about us making it to episode 100 of this (checks notes)....project. Is it us, who thought four episodes would probably see us out? Is it the other motorcycle media who refuse to even acknowledge we exist? Is it Rod, the poor producer whose studio and customer base have suffered irreparable damage thanks to this whole sordid affair? Maybe they're all about equal, who knows? In the end , though, it really doesn't matter because what is not in dispute is that YOU knew. Or you at least made it possible. Without you, we would just be three blokes sitting in a room screaming at each other (while Rod sat in the corner wondering what had gone so wrong in his life). Not that there's anything wrong with that, as they said in Seinfeld, but it's hardly something you'd do every week for fun. (Or maybe you would but you wouldn't pay to sit in a studio and do it. Unless you were mad. Which we might be. But I digress.) Anyway, the point is we love you and thank you genuinely for continuing to turn up and indulge this childish endeavour. (That was the serious bit. Don't get used to it.) Anyway, we have lots of notes from lots of high profile people congratulating us for our achievement so press play and hear it for yourself. Oh, and go and buy Borrie's books. Please. He needs the money. (And if he doesn't get it he will just take mine and I can't afford it.)

  • Moto PG Ep 099: The Mamba Gloriosa Signature Episode

    June 27th, 2023  |  2 hrs 10 mins

    "The number 99 is said to be a powerful symbol of destiny, completion, and perfection." So says the all knowing Google internet thingy. But in Moto GP 99 stands for one thing and one thing alone. It is for him, the one whose name so many are unworthy to speak and yet they do. But from on the mountain George did speak to us this week to acknowledge only one podcast flies with the Eagle Sharks and that podcast is this, the Greatest Motorcycling Podcast in the Universe. And so you will hear George' thoughts on matters MotoGP in this epsidoe. And those of Boris and Tug and Freido. So buy Borrie's books at www.shocknawe.com.au then listen to the episode. Ot the other way round. We really don't care, just make sure to do both.

  • Moto PG Ep 098: Like a Wildebeest Trapped In a Tent

    June 20th, 2023  |  2 hrs 10 mins

    Moto PG on a Tuesday? Yes. The Greatest Motorcycling Podcast In The Universe publishes when we say it publishes and this week it is Tuesday bitches. So get over it. The racing was glorious but let's stop kidding ourselves that this podcast has anything to do with that. It's about these three clowns hearing themselves talk but it's mostly about getting you to part with your money. So go and join the Patreon Pit Crew if you haven't already and also buy Boris' books at shocknawe.com.au. Then you can listen to the show. Which is good (of course).

  • Moto PG Ep 097: Chocolate is Portuguese for Anal

    June 14th, 2023  |  2 hrs 11 mins

    It's hard to tell from the title but Moto PG has gone high brow, bitches. The greatest motorcycling podcast in the universe has, over time, morphed into so much more and episode 97 marks another milestone. It is in this episode that Boris's poem blossomed from its child like 'Green Eggs And Ham' tempo into intellectual high art mimicking Edgar Allen Poe. The Big Man has written a bunch of books, it's true (which you peasants should all buy from shocknawe.com.au) but this....this is on another level entirely. Sure, it remains puerile and profane but that doesn't mean it isn't beautiful. (In fairness, it doesn't mean that it IS beautiful either but that is for you, the listener, to decide). Anyway, it's just one of dozens - nay hundreds - of highlights in episode 97 so you know what to do from here...

  • Moto PG Ep 096: Surprise!

    May 20th, 2023  |  1 hr 17 mins

    Life is full of surprises. There's the unwelcome kind, like when the doctor says "I have your test results. I'm afraid it's gonorrhea" and then there's the more pleasant kind, like this episode of the greatest Motorcycling Podcast On Earth when Simon Crafar returns to talk all things Moto GP. Crafar is one of the most respected analysts in the business which begs the question: Why would he be part of this nonsense not once, but twice? Apparently he likes the lads. So much so he even has Borries's books. (Hint, have YOU bought Borrie's books? Go to http://shocknawe.com.au now and do it if you haven't already. Then come back and listen to Simon. It's the most sensible episode since the last time he was on.)

  • Moto PG Ep 095: We've Got Budgies Bigger Than That

    May 17th, 2023  |  1 hr 33 mins

    Freido is away on 'Big Business' but never fear, Boris and Tug are in complete control. And if you believe that you must be a first time listener so welcome to the madness that is MotoPG, the Greatest Motorcycling Podcast on Earth that sometimes even talks about motorcycling. When it's not bogged down in talk of choomlas and Borrie's books (which are good, and you should buy). If you've been here before you know what to expect. If you haven't, proceed with caution. You might love it. We do.

  • Moto PG Ep 094: There's A Good Market In Vintage Merkins (and Dennis Savic is in studio)

    May 3rd, 2023  |  2 hrs 21 mins

    What do women's pubic wigs have to do with the greatest sport in the world? Nothing, of course. But when the Greatest Motorcycling Podcast On Earth puts the two together you know that somewhow it must make sense. So press play and find out how. You won't regret it. (Actually, you might regret it but you won't know unless you try, will you? It's a conundrum, yes, but these are the things that make life interesting. Now forget the philosophy, did you bitches buy Borrie's books yet? Shame and a pox on the house of every single one of you who hasn't. There's a special place in hell reserved for people who don't support the big man. It's the Serbian section and believe me when I tell you, if you're not Serbian you're going to have a hard time fitting in. And it's for eternity. So don't be one of those fools, go to shocknawe.com.au now and start shopping. You won't regret it....(see above). Oh, and Dennis Savic joins the show to answer some of your questions about electric motorcycles. It's not funny (well it is a bit) but it's mostly informative and educational.

  • Moto PG Ep 093: Daddy, What's a Man Choomla?

    April 19th, 2023  |  1 hr 55 mins

    Before we get on to this week's episode, did you bitches buy Borrie's books yet? The big man does nothing but give to you people, week in and week out, and asks nothing in return. Except that you buy his books. Which you should because they're good. Really good. If you haven't bought one of Borrie's books you should be ashamed of yourself and your life choices and do something about it immediately by going to shocknawe.com.au and pressing the 'Add to Cart' button wherever you see it. Go now, before you even press play.
