Someone who normally talks about acceleration is also experiencing a little bit of it himself. RACER’s Marshall Pruett launched his podcast in May, 2016, and reached one million downloads after 17 months. Fueled by an expanded range of episodes and strong listener interaction, the two million mark was achieved last week, just 10 months later.
Pruett, whose career originated in his father’s garage and saw him establish a career as an IndyCar engineer and team manager, then migrated into journalism in the mid-2000s.
From the irreverent “Who the Hell are You?” series to the “Week In IndyCar,” the Marshall Pruett podcasts cover not only a wide range of topics, but also run the gamut of structure and approach. A new regular show, “The Week In Sports Cars,” debuted in February, and complements other staples like “My Racing Life and Career,” “In-Car Audio and Ambient Racing Sounds” features, “Classic Racing Stories,” and “Strangest Cars I’ve Raced” podcasts.
Already in production and set to launch in the coming weeks is the instructive “So You Want To Be A _______ In Racing” series and the second season of “Who The Hell Are You?” as the Marshall Pruett Podcast episode collection surges past 375 hours of content available for download. Looking ahead to 2019, a new dedicated website is also under development.
RACER extends its congratulations to Pruett on the achievement. Here’s to the next two million!
