Our government podcast directory adds a new entry for the first time in months and it’s an unusual one.
It’s the Army Racing Podcast. There isn’t a formal “about us” link on the larger site, but this blurb from the home page gives some flavor of the site:
The Army Racing program is in high gear for 2006. The line-up includes the NASCAR Number 01 U.S. Army Chevrolet driven by â€œFront Rowâ€ Joe Nemechek. Tony â€œThe Sargeâ€ Shumacher who pilots the U.S. Army Top Fuel dragster, and 190 mph rocket riders, Angelle Sampey and Antron Brown on their pro stock motorcycles. –All three teams combine speed, power and technology to be the best representing the best. GO ARMY!
The podcasts are short (approx 4 minutes) bits of news on Army racing teams in NASCAR. Along with the racing are notes about how Army values can help you in real life.
Along with highlighting our latest podcast, I’d like to ask FGI readers to stay alert for other government podcasts, especially those from state or local agencies. FirstGov has a subject-based directory for federal podcasts, but no one else I’m aware of tries to maintain links to state and local podcasts.
