Continental Announces The Debut Of The ‘Dinner With Racers’ Podcast; First 17 Episodes Unveiled

Continental-Dinner-With-RacersIt took 8,000 miles, 30 days and 20 states to record, but the highly anticipated “Dinner with Racers” podcast is now available for free download, with the first 17 episodes available via iTunes. The remaining episodes (27 conversations in total) will be released this coming Tuesday, Nov. 24, in advance of people taking their own road trips over the Thanksgiving Holiday.

An idea that was several years in the making, “Dinner with Racers” takes the audience on a journey with hosts Ryan Eversley and Sean Heckman as they drive across the country in an Acura MDX shod in Continental CrossContact LX20 tires, stopping for a variety of meals with notable figures along the way.

A unique format, the series focuses on an unstructured, free-flowing conversation that allows the audience to get to know the true personality of each guest with all conversations lasting more than an hour, and filled with stories, insights, opinions and oftentimes, outright absurdity, according to Continental.

Focusing on variety, the guest roster includes everyone from drivers to engineers to race officials, journalists, team owners and involving a number of disciplines including IndyCar, SportsCar, NASCAR, Global RallyCross and beyond.

The show is the brainchild of both hosts, with Eversley currently holding the title of factory driver for Acura in PWC and Continental Tire SportsCar Challenge, and Heckman a current partner in TMB Creative Inc., who perform a number of creative services for organizations both in and out of motorsports.

“It was a true honor to make this series,” said Eversley. “It was unbelievable how open and willing everyone was to this concept, and the fact that we were able to find so many great guests is a testament to the industry’s commitment to bringing out the personalities in this sport that we all love so much. It was a ton of fun recording all of these conversations, and I hope the enjoyment that we had translates to everyone listening, hopefully this is the first of many more seasons to come.”

“Thirty days in a car with Ryan is … an experience,” added Heckman. “I’m shocked we both still talk to each other, but I think it’s because we were distracted by the entertainment-factor that was all of our guests. We really put an effort into variety, and I think it shows. This entire series was a selfish exercise because, quite frankly, these were all people we wanted to spend time with anyway, the recording equipment and free meal just gave us an excuse.”
