For a new Formula 1 podcast, it’s virtually “lights out and away we go.”

Michael Kosta of The Daily Show and journalist Lily Herman present the podcast, which aims to give fans a better understanding of the seemingly intricate world of Formula One.
In a trailer for the series, Herman explains, “Formula 1 is much more than a vehicle race; it merges man and machine in a rich people’s playground, where the border between life and death is razor-thin.”
Kosta and Herman pledge to bring you the most up-to-date information on drivers and their teams, both on and off the track.
Choosing Sides: F1 will, according to a press release, “examine the characters of the sport and answer questions like, “which driver received death threats and hired a bodyguard at the end of last season all because he crashed into a wall?”
Kosta says, “We’ll delve into the rules, technology, and on-track rivalry.”
“But we’ll also get into scandalous stories you need to properly understand the sport,” Herman continues.
Though Kosta admits he doesn’t know much about F1, Herman says she will show him the ropes so that “by the time we’re done here, you’ll not only be an F1 whiz, but you’ll be ready to declare your loyalty to a team and a driver.”
On June 28, the podcast will be available on the iHeartRadio app, Apple Podcasts, and other podcast platforms.
In the United States, F1 is fast gaining popularity. In addition to the Grand Prix in Austin, Texas, the organization has recently added races in Miami, Florida, and Las Vegas, Nevada, both of which will debut next year.
