088 Auto Racing for the Average Joe | Chris Leone of iRacing

Imagine being able to race any car on any track in the world! That’s the power of simulated virtual racing and the realism is mind-blowing! 

You could race a Porsche 919 in the 24 Hours of Le Mans for a couple hundred bucks from the safety and comfort of your home!


In this episode I got to talk with Chris Leone of iRacing. iRacing is an incredibly realistic sim racing program used by professional drivers but available to anyone. All you need is a computer and a digital wheel/pedal.


Join Chris and I in this episode as we discuss how iRacing scans every square inch of a track to properly replicate it, how they recreate the driving dynamics of real cars, how iRacing alters driving dynamics to incredible detail (like the temperature of the track pavement!), how to get started sim racing, what equipment you’ll need, how to get better at racing, and much more!

Curiosityness > 052 Lessons from Finland with Joanna Nylund, Author of Sisu: The Finnish Art of Courage

Sisu sorta means courage, determination, and integrity but it’s basically impossible to translate perfectly into English.    In this episode Joanna Nylund shares some of the characteristics and behaviors of Finnish people.
