    Today on Past Gas, the story of the motorcycle racer turned spy Ernst Degner-- as well as that of a Nazi engineer named Walter Kaaden. Why was Degner leaving East Germany at the height of his fame? How was the Japanese company Suzuki embroiled in his defection? And what secrets did Degner have stuffed in a briefcase that he was carrying with him on that Autumn day in communist Germany? Degner and Walter’s destinies were shaped by larger-than-life forces-- but through a series of choices of their own making, they shaped their futures, and in the process, altered the history of motorcycle racing forever.

Joe gotta go

Sorry guys, but Joe doesn’t do it for me. He doesn’t for the dynamic and his inputs are off the mark most of the time.

Best podcast for fans of history and cars.

I have listened to this podcast series twice and might possibly be a third time, absolutely love it, I love the hosts bits, the way they tell the stories and the stories themselves, from Bertha Benz to Hamilton and everything in between I can't wait each week for the new episode I get truly fire dup.

Thanks Nolan Joe and James, keep up the hard work and keep it Juiced 👌
