E47: B-B-B-B-B-Bonus Round!

What the deuce? Two episodes in two days? Craziness! This episode is a continuation from the last episode, somewhat, and after a bit of nonsense, we start off with¬†‘Finder’s Fee‘… After Matt incorrectly calls it ‘What About This Car‘ a few times. The budget Joseph gave Matt for this week’s episode of¬†‘Finder’s Fee‘ is $200,000. […]

E46: The Bold and the Beautiful

We’re late again this week, sorry about that, but to make up for it, there’ll be a special bonus episode later this week as well. We start this week in the usual fashion, with an argument, and a discussion about ‘The Bold and the Beautiful‘, for some reason. Then we break trend and talk about […]

E45: Matt Fiddled With It

A few days late, but better late than never! This was take-two of episode 45 as Matt accidentally killed the first recording 30 minutes in. We start off with the news, or rather, what news there has been in the last few weeks since we last recorded. Joseph brings up HSV importing the Chevy Camaro, […]

First topic, Joseph finally gets a chance to talk about the¬†Netflix¬†show ‘Fastest Car‘, and on the whole he was positive about it. We then […]

E43: His ‘n’ Hers

This week¬†is part two of the 3 episodes in one night marathon we did to cover Joseph’s absence while he’s in Japan.

E42: Crack A Tinnie And Neck It

Joseph is going to Japan for a few weeks, so we had to record 3 episodes to cover his time away. Episode 42 is part one of our 3 episode marathon we recorded in one sitting, needless to say, by the end of episode 44 we were pretty delerious… But you’ll find out for yourself […]

We’ve made it to the big 4-0! This week, we discuss the news, we play ‘Finders Fee‘, and Joel (rent-a-crowd) has his motorcycle minute (which turns into more than a minute), a new challenge has been put forward by Matt, and of course our usual banter. Firstly, Mitch gives Joseph his budget for the 3 […]

We are back for episode 39 of Gears and Beers. This week, we talk our usual shit, children’s movies, cars, and beer.

Matt then gives […]

E38: Wham Bam Thank You Ma’am

This is an exciting episode for Gears and Beers, as we have upgraded our audio quality considerably. We have gone from a single Rode NT-USB with us 4 huddled around it, to a Rode Procaster each, connected to a Focusrite Scarlett 18i8 audio interface, recorded with Garageband. We’re still tweaking the setup, but we think […]

On this week’s episode of Gears and Beers, we play Matt’s ‘What about this Car?’,¬†Joel’s ‘Motorcycle Minute‘ returns, Joseph’s brings back his ‘Automotive Word Association‘, and of course our usual eloquent bullshittery and tangents.

E35: I’ve got the PHEV…

After week off, we are back and with a fancy new intro and outro thanks to Robert Lee, a voice many of you I’m sure will instantly recognise. Matt’s away, so this week it’s just Mitch, Joseph and Joel. First two news topics this¬†week are about Hyundai releasing pricing for the upcoming i30N, and their […]

We’re all in the house this week, with the return of Matt after being hit by a truck (literally).

E33: Tingle in the Pringle

Better late than never, here’s episode 33. It’s been a bit of a crazy week for the¬†Gears and Beers¬†crew… And not in the best way. I’m sure we’ll discuss the events in episode 34. This week is tangent city, more so than usual, believe it or not. First topic of the blocks is Nissan’s facelift […]

E32: Horse Strength

It’s episode 32, and we actually talk about beer! This week we’re drinking ‘Urban Crusader’,¬†which is claimed to be an Australian “style” Double-Hopped Lager, however upon further inspection, it might actually be triple-hopped… Further investigation is needed. First actual news topic for the week is about Porsche rumoured to be putting a turbocharger on the […]

E31: Shrivel Factor is Real

It’s a bit of a slow news week this week, but we¬†persevere and end up with a great episode in the progress. Joel, AKA ‘Rent-A-Crowd‘, is back and brings up a brief topic about a gentleman who bought a car from Pagani without receiving vehicle papers making it impossible to register his new Pagani.

E30: Like an Old Marriage

We’ve made it to episode 30! It’s hard to believe that we haven’t killed each other by now, but here we are. We start off by talking about Hyundai’s new Veloster Turbo and Veloser N, which were both announced at the Detroit Motor Show. Then, Joseph and Matt have an argument about turbocharging versus supercharging. […]

E29: A Beer in a Man’s Hat

We’re all here¬†this week, Mitch, Joseph, Matt and Joel (AKA Rent-A-Crowd), and it’s a properly interesting episode. We bring back talking about beer. We realise that we’ve dropped the ball in terms of the ‘Beer‘¬†part of ‘Gears and¬†¬†Beers‘, so we’re making an effort to talk about beer more! This week, we drink Great Northerns, a […]

E28: Automotive Hipster

We are back! Well, at least Joseph and Matthew are (featuring the Rent-A-Crowd, Joel). The first topic of 2018 is prestige¬†cars coming out in 2018, that Joseph goes through incredibly slowly. Joeseph then goes on a whopper of a rant about electric vehicles…. Then Matthew brings up electric motorcycles, for some reason. Matthew then brings […]

E27: Trump Clues

We are back to our regularly scheduled programming! This week, Matt teases us with clues as to which car he is in the process of buying, and we spend 20¬†minutes trying to work out what car he is buying. We then talk about the Kia Stinger’s ANCAP safety rating, which turns into a bit of […]

E25: Send Noods

We have a special guest on this episode, his name is Joel. Joel was previously the Rent-A-Crowd, but has ascended to be a panel guest… And while he has never owned a car, he has drunk many a beer, so he’s at least 50% qualified to be on our pokey lil podcast. We crack into […]

It’s still just Mitch and Joseph again this week, I honestly don’t know if we’ll recognise Matt when –¬†if¬†– he returns! This week, we discuss the newly announced¬†Tesla Roadster which has a¬†claimed¬†10,000nm of torque! Absolutely ludicrous! Joseph brings up the amazing new Singer / Williams Porsche 964 911, then we have an argument over which […]
