The Eurogamer Podcast: how racing games defined one of our finest

Lewis Hamilwho?

One thing the Eurogamer Podcast was really good at in the past was giving our writers a way to show themselves outside of the pieces they write for the site. I think this provided an opportunity for you to get to know us, beyond the words, as people, which we are, horns and tails and hooves aside. And I didn't want to lose that with the new incarnation of the Podcast, because it's nice to show you who we are, and there aren't many opportunities for it.

That's why I want to steadily pull in members of the Eurogamer team and talk to them the same way I would any of my guests, and have them share their lives and experiences and build a picture of who they are. My guinea pig for the first of these is someone who has been - and will continue to be - front and centre of Eurogamer for years: deputy editor Martin Robinson. He celebrated his 10th anniversary here earlier this year, and we love him for his reliably contrary views and unrelenting passion for racing games.

Actually, it's that passion for racing I really dig into in this episode, because it's a theme which winds way back into his formative years and defines him, in some respects, and the things he loves doing now.
