S05E09: Driving all the cars & James May's pub
This month we've been driving lots of things – from £100k classic Minis to £15k classic BMW M5s, Polestar 1s, VW Touareg Rs, Porsche Panamera 4S E-Hybrid Sport Turismos and that's probably the character count used up. Basically we review lots of cars. But there's more! Tim and Rach have both been hanging out with James May at his pub – find out what that's like and excuse Tim's bunged-up nose.

S05E08: We review loads of cars and talk about YouTuber life
After a mild hiatus Rachael and Tim are back to talk about the huge pile of cars they've reviewed over the past month – from €1.5m super GTs to electric Skodas, 600hp hybrid Hondas and two Lotuses that Tim used to make the internet angry. We also chat about what life's been like since starting our fledgling careers on YouTube – from the comments to the algorithm to the MONEY.

S05E07: Camping nightmares, fast electric Kias and car-branded clothing
On this week's slice of nonsense, Tim's joined by Rachael Hogg and Lucy Brown to talk about the NEWS (a 3.5-to-60mph Kia and a Mini pace car), but mostly we talk about our attempts at camping. Why? Because there's a new small VW Caddy California campervan coming to the UK for the first time and we get a bit excited. Well, Tim does.

S05E06: Filming with Clarkson, Hammond & May (also new M3, Puma ST, LR Discovery & more!)

Feb 15, 2021
S05E05: James May on the moon, Motorway manslaughter, Audi RS goes electric
This week we chat about the slightly sensible topic of Smart Motorways, the less sensible topic of the Spirit of Ecstasy turning 110, the definitely less sensible topic of influencers blagging stuff, and Tim talks about his time in the rear-whee-drive Porsche Taycan. We also talk about the Polestar One, James May sending cheese to the moon, and a whole bunch of other stuff. Enjoy.
Feb 5, 2021
S05E4: Sexy DS4, ridiculous F-150 Raptor, brown LFA, Katsu McNuggets
This week's podcast is a more relaxed affair than usual – join us for a chat about the chic new DS 4 (and some of Lucy's fondest memories of growing up French), a very British take on the new Ford F-150 Raptor, Dubai's largest 4x4 and a Brown Lexus LFA. We also chat about James May's electric scooter (and Lucy's inability therewith), McDonald's Katsu chicken nuggets and spam. Obvs.
Jan 29, 2021
S05E03: What's it like working with Clarkson, Hammond and May? What's wrong with Tesla?
This week we're joined by DT's Marketing Director Lucy Brown – who has the enviable job of spending lots of time chatting to Clarkson, Hammond and May. We chat about her time getting off a transatlantic flight and going straight to a pub to film Jeremy, and obviously we've got the usual car news and updates on what we've been driving. Enjoy!
Jan 20, 2021
S05E02: Tiny V10s for project cars, hypercar racing, the new biggest car company and MORE
This week on the DriveTribe podcast Tim and Rachael are joined by Mike Fernie off of the DriveTribe YouTube channel. Together we chat about the news of the week: the new budget Porsche Taycan, the new giant car-nglomerate Stellantis, the Renault 5 and Toyota's new hypercar… which may be going to race in a series that no longer has the sparkle we were once promised.
Jan 14, 2021

Find out how many miles May's done in his Ferrari in the past year, and what vehicle he's assembled in his lockdown spare time. He also chats about the beauty of flying yourself around to country to sample chicken and mushroom pies. It's a good one. Enjoy.

Series 4 Episode 3: Aston Martin DBX and LR Defender reviewed, new Audi S3 news, 800hp AMGs, and why SUVs are GREAT
This week's DriveTribe podcast is brought to you by the heat-addled brains of Rachael and Tim. We discuss the slightly underwhelming new Audi S3, the upcoming 800hp Mercedes-AMG S73, the Bentley Bentayga Speed, and Tim reviews the Aston Martin DBX and Land Rover Defender. Rachael makes the case that SUVs aren't evil and that people on the internet need to chill out (again).
Aug 4, 2020
Series 4 Episode 2: The new V8 Defender, Merc-AMG A45 review and cars that won't let you speed (and something about Tapas cars)
God, the future's bleak, isn't it? Luckily for you, Tim and Rachael are here to cheer you up with news that soon, cars physically won't let you break the speed limits! Yay! Oh. That's not actually good news. Oh well, we also bring you news of a V8 version of the new Land Rover Defender, the Hyundai i20N, a weird SEAT Tapas bar (in Austria) and Forza Motorsport 8. Tim also reviews the Mercedes-AMG A45. It's a very fun car.

Series 4 Episode 1: We're BACK, a bit better and here's a 1,400hp electric Ford Mustang
After a brief Coronavirus hiatus that gave us very little to talk about, the DriveTribe Podcast is back for its fourth season. And we've actually put some effort in this time, with new (and deeply pornographic) music recorded by the one and only Jonathan Morris (aka CEO of DriveTribe), punchier news, reviews and gear-grinding unpopular opinion segments. This week we take a look at the 1,400hp Mustang Mach-E, the upcoming V8-powered Jeep Wrangler, Rachael gives us the lowdown on her Honda E review and I'll talk about the Audi RS4, RS6 and why you should never call your car 'she'.
Jun 19, 2020
Season 3 Ep 12: Ferrari's filmic fail – and we review the Honda Jazz (it's better than you think)
This week Tim and Rachael sink their teeth into the latest audio-visual offering from Ferrari - which sets a new low for manufacturer-backed films. We chat about the brand's remake of the classic Rendezvous, and try to find out exactly how Ferrari managed to be so desperately uncool. Speaking of uncool, Tim's been driving the new Honda Jazz and argues that you should probably care about it. No, really.
Jun 10, 2020
Season 3 Ep 11: Porsche 911 Turbo and Taycan ride-along reviews
This week you join Tim as he gets behind the wheel of the new Porsche 911 Turbo S (the 992 generation. Thank god we have all these numbers to use). If that wasn't exciting enough, he then takes you on a bit of a tour of the Porsche Taycan Turbo S to see if it's worthy of the Turbo badge. He swears a bit. They're both quite good cars. Rachael catches us up with the week's news and reminisces about why drifting front-wheel-drive cars on ice isn't as bad as it sounds.

Season 3 Ep 10: Maurice Hamilton on why Niki Lauda was one of the smartest F1 drivers ever
While Lewis Hamilton would have plenty to say about the late, great Niki Lauda, we've found an even more qualified Hamilton to tell us about the Formula 1 icon. Maurice Hamilton is a motorsport journalist who's just written a new book about the man in the red hat and his incredible career. He joins Phill Tromans for a chat about Lauda's life, as well as the latest goings on in modern Formula 1.

Season 3 Ep 9: Our VMAX Autobahn stories, more used supercar bargains and… bicycles?!
This week Tim is joined by Phill and Russ from the DriveTribe Editorial team to chat about the falling prices of supercars, which now mean you can get a McLaren 720S for about the same money as a well-specced Ford Fiesta. Almost. We also hear about the time Phill hit 205mph on a (closed) public road, and the rest of the guys reminisce about the good times of maxing a car on the Autobahn. In between there's some errant chat about throwing yourself down hills on mountain bikes, the problem with pooing in campervans and lots more highbrow chat.

Season 3 Ep8: Best fast car bargains with Will Beaumont
The eagle-eyed DriveTribe Podcast team invite ex-Evo magazine writer Will Beaumont back to the show for an hour-long daydreamy walk through the used-car classifieds. We go through various price points, picking out our £5k, £12k, £40k and £100k used car buys. We have no concept of money, clearly, so don't actually buy anything purely on our advice. But this is all a good excuse for some drives down memory lane in some of the finest cars you can buy.

Season 3 Ep 7: A test driver talks about the Nurburgring and his manual M3 CSL
This week we're joined by David Chapman, who is a test driver for a big car company by day, and the owner of the finest manual-converted BMW M3 CSL by night. David explains what the job of a test driver is, the challenges of testing cars on the Nurburgring and how you can improve your own driving skills. He's also owned some very interesting cars and talks us through his back catalogue – including the Mk1 Ford Focus RS, the Noble M12 and the humble Ford Puma. Enjoy!

Season 3 Ep 6: Meet Angus MacKenzie – the man who built MotorTrend
You might not have heard of Angus MacKenzie, but you'll know his work – he helped turn MotorTrend from a dated auto magazine into the full-on automotive media giant it is today. He explains his journey through the car journalism industry, what led him to kickstart the car video revolution and what cars he'd take home if he won the lottery. Sit back, relax and enjoy.
Apr 6, 2020
Season 3 Ep 5: First cars, crashes, crushes and press cars
We're all isolating – but that just means we've had more time than usual to dredge through our memories to talk about our motoring firsts. Tim, Russ and Phill join together to share our first cars, first press cars, first crashes and first press launch celebrity crushes. Maybe.

S03E04: Covid-19, small violins, Tim's Touareg, Up GTI and off-road biking
This week's podcast dabbles briefly in the global misery that is Covid-19 and the effect it's having on the global car market – and, of course – the launch of all the shiny new cars we were meant to be driving. Bring your tiniest violins. Then we chat about Tim's new budget Bentley Bentayga (also known as the Volkswagen Touareg), Russ extols the virtues of the VW Up GTI, and then Tim finishes by talking about popping his off-road cherry on a motorbike adventure course.

Season 3 Ep 3: The 2020 Geneva Motor Show round-up, feat. Koenigsegg and Bentley
The Geneva Motor Show was a weird one this year – simply because it didn't actually happen. That said, Coronavirus couldn't keep the manufacturers from unleashing their latest and greatest wares on our eyeballs. In this episode of the DriveTribe Podcast we run you through all the most important cars of the 2020 Geneva Motor Show, and some of the most dull.

Season 3 Ep 2: Are Porsches really that good? Kia Stinger and BMW M235i reviewed

Rachael's been locked into May's cramped kitchen knocking up some fibrous delights, Tim's been out driving the Honda E and Ford Puma, and Russell Campbell joins the team with some extra cynicism. We also discuss the worst drivers on our roads – is it delivery men, or angry people in Smart cars?

Season 2 Ep 10: Ladies from Mini talk McDonald's (and hot hatches… and their speeding fines)
Oh this is a good one. This week we're joined by the lovely Helen and Georgina from the Mini UK PR team who tell us about the Mini Electric (or Cooper SE, if you're not in the UK), and the Mini JCW GP hot hatch. Which is the silliest Mini of all time. We also chat about the news: Gordon Murray's fan car and the Mercedes-AMG Project One fall under our spotlight. Tim talks about his new BMW R1250 GS motorcycle, and passes on Hogg's assessment of the BMW M8. Then we speak about the dirtiest food of all time: The Pizza Hut Buffet. And why some Mini PRs eat their McDonald's off a plate because they're so extra.

Season 2 Ep 9: The Great Escape, driving AMGs and drinking champagne before 10am
We've been out and about with James May comparing two of his favourite cars – the Tesla Model S and the Toyota Mirai. Then we made up for it by razzing around in a Mercedes-AMG G63 and a few other German V8s. We've also been blown away by Merc's EQC electric SUV. That's not all – we talk about Guy Martin's recreation of the motorbike jump from The Great Escape, why stop-start is a generational thing and what it's like to quaff champagne for breakfast in one of London's most iconic skyscrapers. Finally, we also talk about ordering burgers with James May. It's confusing, but worth a listen.

Season 2 Ep 8: DBX, RSQ8, Mach-E – and why car designers can be right idiots
No really, because some car companies think that ladies need extra help when it comes to designing cars. Anyway. This week's been big – we've had the Ford Mustang Mach-E, the Aston DBX and the outrageous Audi RSQ8. We also talk about James May's obsession with crap sandwiches and why MotoGP is going to be an excellent, excellent series next year. Remember to email email@example.com with your ideas and abuse.

Season 2 Ep 7: Tiff in Tanks, silly new supercars, horrid Hogg YouTube comments and GUESS THE SMELL
This week's episode of the DriveTribe podcast is a proper variety show. Mike shows up late because he's been busy racing Jeeps against Tiff Needell in tanks in incredibly muddy fields. Tim and Rachael bang on about the new Ferrari Roma and McLaren Elva (not vulva), and Rachael reads aloud some of the most horrific YouTube comments she's received. To wrap things up Mike and Rachael smell a very expensive in-car fragrance and try to guess which part of the world it represents. We're proper high-brow, us.

Season 2 Ep 6: A man from VW cometh. We've driven the 911 Speedster, the M2 CS is here and you should ride a motorbike
This week's brand of automotive nonsense is helped along by Tom Lynch, a PR person for VW in the UK. We talk about why the new ID 3 and Golf 8 are still significant, and why a grey Passat has sparked so much internet interest. Tim's been out driving the Porsche 911 Speedster and 718 Spyder, and he's been commuting by motorbike and explains why it's the best thing ever. We also talk about V10 estate cars and there's a lot of innuendo. Sorry.

We talk about what we've been doing in James May's secret underground garage, what we think of the BMW M2 Competition, the Bentley Continental GTC and the Skoda Kodiaq vRS. We also explain why the Ford Fiesta ST is better than all of them.
Oct 3, 2019
Season 2 Ep 4: How much driving talent do you need to be a car journalist? Are petrolheads irrelevant? Should you buy a TVR?
This week we remembered to book A GUEST. We're joined by Mr Will Beaumont, a freelance motoring journalist who previously worked at Evo magazine – one of the UK's leading performance car magazines. He tells us his tales of ridiculous supercar roadtrips, what level of driving talent you need to succeed, why you should buy a TVR Tuscan and why he doesn't wear socks. We also chat through the usual motorsport and motoring news, and discuss which cars we'd buy for £40,000.

Tim's also been to the Porsche Experience Centre to find out why your car control is probably not as good as you'd hope. At least his isn't.
Sep 6, 2019
Season 2 Ep 2: Bugatti's smashed 300mph – but should we go further? Are e-sports the future of racing?

We're also looking at ex-Jag designer Ian Callum's latest car, a tragic week of motorsport news and also Mike talks about his time behind the wheel at the latest Gran Turismo e-sports series.

Join Tim Rodie, Rob Burnett and Mike Fernie as we meander through some car news and the huge pile of cars we've been driving lately, including the Audi TTRS, RS3, Ducati Panigale V4 (erm, that's a bike) and the incredible Renault Zoe. Also, Rob talks about the magic of the Spa 24 hour race, and Mike presents a solid case for converting crappy old classic cars to electric power.

Jan 18, 2019
Ep 17: Is 2019 is the year supercars jump the shark?
In this week's podcast we welcome in the new year with a shedload of cynicism. Lamborghini may have finally made the Huracan we actually want, McLaren may have a Senna fire problem, and Pagani may need to make a facelifted Huayra. We've also met the future of resto-modding classic American cars, and his 3D printer.

We're joined in the DT studio by the one and only Emma Voltaire – blue-haired community influencer extraordinaire. We chat about whether the UK driving test is completely pointless, and whether or not it should really include advice on avoiding drones, as some people thing. Tim bangs on about how he didn't crash an expensive McLaren, Mike spouts forth on an amazing drone light show put on by Audi, and Jack talks about James May's knob. Of course.
