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 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.

  • Moto PG Ep 092: There's No Fat Germans

    April 5th, 2023  |  2 hrs 2 mins

    There is a very simple answer to all the questions we receive about the greatest motorcycling podcast on earth here at MotoPG HQ. That answer is: 'you'll have to listen'. For example, somebody will ask this week 'Where do you get these episode titles from?' and the answer is 'you'll have to listen'. 'Why is he called The Captain?' someone will say and the answer is 'you'll have to listen.' 'Why should Borrie's Poem legitimately be considered high art?' 'You'll have to listen'.You get the idea. So if the question this week is 'What happened in Argentina and why are Boris and the boys the only ones who can really tell me' then the answer is, you guessed it, 'you'll have to l listen'. So now that you've got the hang of it we don't need to tell you what to do next, do we? Oh, and visit our sponsors and buy stuff from them (there's a handy list with links below) and then go to our website and buy stuff from us. We're in this for the money bitches. Your money. So hand it over.

  • Moto PG Ep 091: Put Some Lemon On This!

    March 29th, 2023  |  2 hrs 14 mins

    It's back bitches! And it's glorious. The gift that keeps on giving once again exceeded expectations to kick off 2023 and Freido, Tug and Boris are here to highlight all the highlights. From the new sprint race to the Captain bitching and Jack Miller flying, there was something for everyone at Portimao. Ep 91 has all the usual insight and analysis from the world of Moto GP and beyond plus there's Borrie's Poem, Rossi's Instructions and the new segment that's sure to be a hit, The Captain's letter. So go ahead and press play. You either will or won't regret it but either way we get to add your download to the invoice we send the sponsors. And at the end of the day, isn't that what it's all about?

  • Moto PG Ep 090: Boris Flies Solo

    February 15th, 2023  |  1 hr 9 mins

    It's not quite The Beatles breaking up but Boris flying solo with no Tug or Freido might be just as confronting. Sadly, though, that's where we find ourselves this week folks with both Tug and Freido indisposed leaving the Big Man unsupervised at the microphone. Thank God the Dirty Badger dropped in to break things up a bit. It's all about testing this week which, as Boris so eloquently notes, tells us everything and nothing about what to expect for 2023. It's a Moto PG with a difference so get it in your ears now. And if you don't like it shut up and keep it to yourself. We'll resume normal programming next episode.

  • Moto PG Ep 089: Pin The Gas On The Podcast

    January 17th, 2023  |  30 mins 11 secs

    Americans aren't like us. Well most of them, anyway. But some are a bit like us and we've found some in the world of Moto GP podcasting. As most of you already know the vast majority of Moto GP podcasts are rubbish. that's why you're here. But the lads at Pin The Gas are different. Because they're more like us. See? Try to keep up people. Anyway, they had Boris on their podcast as a guest awhile back so we're returning the favour in our summer sessions and introducing them to you. Sort of a 'you scratch our back and we'll scratch yours' arrangement. (Anybody who scratches Boris' back deserves a guest appearance. Braver men than us, that's for sure.) So press play and enjoy. We did.

  • Moto PG Ep 088: Simon Crafar. Enough Said

    January 10th, 2023  |  1 hr 31 mins

    When this podcast launched the simple concept (or 'business plan') was to capture the demented ramblings of three self appointed motorcycle racing experts and see if anybody thought they were funny. And to the amazement of many (including themselves), people did. And there was merriment and much laughter and mirth as our three loveable clowns brought their own brand of 'analysis' to the world of Moto GP and motorcycling more generally. But nobody's laughing any more because it turns out people are taking them seriously. And not just unhinged people who don't know any better but serious, knowledgeable people. People who are legitimate analysts and who actually do know what they're talking about. People like Simon Crafar. Yes, you read that right, Simon f*#*ing Crafar. THE Simon Crafar, from the TV. Right here on the Moto PG podcast. So get it in your ears. It's the most sensible thing you'll ever hear on this show.

  • Moto PG Ep 087: The Ginger Ninja Ready To Roll In 2023

    January 3rd, 2023  |  21 mins 32 secs

    Party's over bitches. Christmas is in the rear view mirror and it's 2023 so time to get back to work ahead of what's going to be another crazy season of racing and podcasting. We're kicking off the New Year by chatting with one of Australia's best racing prospects, the Ginger Ninja Joel Kelso, who also happens to be one of the sport's best interviews. Press play now to find out if Kelso really did organise Pedro Acosta's first root (and plenty of other stuff, too).
