You could make our lives easier by naming the files and the advertising using the same convention. The file is named by date NOT episode. A small but annoying thing.

Jim Race and Martin Darlington bring the seasons that much closer with a round-up of the MotoGP paddock, teams across all three classes and some way-too-early speculation. Planted firmly in the middle of that are Phil Hall's excellent interviews from the just completed Island Classic races at Phillip Island. A truly international effort this week with Martin in the UK, Jim in the US, Jules traveling in Asia, and Phil joining us from the down under!
