Episodes

The first episode of My Dad's Car was recorded and published in February 2023, just a few days before Andy turned 40. In the following weeks and months, a number of full episodes were recorded with Andy's friends Rob and Azim, with Jon also sharing his own story, ready for 3 episodes to be dropped in one go. 
Early response from friends, family, and importantly our guests was great, and we pride ourselves on only publishing an episode that our guests have listened to, and are happy with. In fact, this feedback from our guests really helps our motivation.
Season 1 of My Dad's Car podcast ran from February - May 2023. 
Season 2 of My Dad's Car podcast ran from June - November 2023
Season 3 of My Dad's Car podcast from November 2023 -

How do you record the Podcast? 

To date (Season 2) all episodes of My Dad's Car podcast have been recorded via Zoom, with the exception of a collaboration episode with Harry from The Ignition Podcast. Our plan is to purchase the equipment to record podcasts in person, at workshops, museums and at live events, and that is what we are saving towards thanks to the generosity of those who have bought us a coffee.
