"megan white" Discussed on The Autosport Podcast

"The podcast today by agron prieto Alex kalanos, Jess mcfadden. We missed you guys last week after Silverstone, not that we don't love Hayden and Kev. And I'm joined by Megan white, who is at his home from home back at the accommodation. From the track today. So Megan would come to you first. You've been there. Your first time to the Red Bull rings are less about how you, what you made of it. Yeah, it was incredible. I mean, it's only my third Grand Prix weekend. My first Barcelona earlier this season, and then I was always still last weekend. And I've got to say the rebel ring was my favorite that I've been to so far. It's an incredible circuit. It's nestled in the mountains, beautiful scenery. And just a really well organized event. None of the problems that we had in Barcelona surfaced. There were no cues in cues for people trying to get in sufficient food, which was always nice. So it was an absolutely fantastic experience from that perspective. You know, brilliant brilliant circuit couldn't recommend the circuit enough. The only problem I would say was the fans. And that's a really sad thing to have to say after a Grand Prix weekend, you know? Everyone's gone to have a great time. Everyone's gone to enjoy themselves, but they're from my experience being out among the fans and wandering around. I didn't like the atmosphere really. I thought it was quite a, it was a highly charged atmosphere, which can be a good thing, but this one wasn't. Of a certain driver? Yeah, so, you know, I don't mean to be negative, but the vast majority of fans there were Max Verstappen fans, so it does skew the percentage of each driver's fans that were behaving badly, but the vast majority of fans with F one driver and they were not behaving well. We saw I saw groups of fans from who supported other drivers who generally seem to be behaving quite well. But, you know, a good example is one night we were leaving the circuit and there was a Verstappen fan publicly urinating and a group of Mercedes staff members walked past in their team gear and he shouted jeering and shouting at them and that was after qualifying. The whole atmosphere that all that kind of behavior was really symptomatic of the way that I felt like people were behaving. There was a lot of excessive alcohol consumption. There was a lot of what I would say like a log on out. You know, I'm not opposed to people going and having a good time at a circuit, but I do think that especially given what we've heard from other fans you've been there this weekend, there is definitely a limit and it was way surpassed by the behavior of the people who are there this weekend. Let's get into it straight away. We're going to talk about we've got an hour to do this. And we're going to talk about the result. And it's a fantastic result for Sharla Clare, not necessarily for Ferrari because of reliability woes. But this has been a horrible topic to get into, but let's just get into it and cover it off Jess. I mean, can you talk us through how you sum up some of the new stories that we've heard coming out of Austria? Yeah, I mean, again, probably important to note that I don't think it is just a problem with Austria. We've since had multiple stories come out from Silverstone last week as well. I've had a lot of people DMed me because I've been quite vocal about this topic on my own social channels and I have a lot of people reach out to me and tell me things that have happened both this weekend and last weekend. And as you say, it's a very last year last season was extremely charged and I think that we're still kind of feeling the rumblings of that in terms of the dynamic between British fans, Dutch fans, Lewis Hamilton supporters, Max Verstappen supporters. First off, I think we're very brave to take to Twitter and share their stories and say, this is happening. This just happened to me or happened to a friend or I witnessed this. And I think it was just the volume of people that were coming out and as to Meghan's point, it seemed to be that this track in particular has a reputation. I actually had a lot of people reach out to me and say that it was the same even back in 1985, a fan said that they witnessed a lot of lousy behavior. My only real experience of heavily. We don't want to make this about gross generalizing groups of people. So I'm definitely not wanting to start this out as like it being Dutch fans. I don't think that's fair. I think for all of this, it is a minority of people that are ruining it for the majority. As often is the case, but my first Grand Prix was spa 2014. Going as a fan. Well, I've been to Silverstone for a couple of odd but never race day. And it was my full my first full weekend. And I found the Dutch know how to party, right? They are there for a good time. And when I was there, they had full hgv vehicles with DJ booths and double beds in it and they were going until 5 o'clock in the morning and there were fireworks being set off at 5 o'clock in the morning. And I will say as a fairly young fan at the time, it was quite intimidating. But luckily I never received any bad behavior towards me. But I think the number of people that have said that bad things have happened to them. Yeah, the amount of stories that are coming out, I think it's just concerning and it's caused a lot of people to look inwardly at what the sport is doing. And I think there was enough of a rumbling that F one felt the need to power statement, which is good, but yet again, we're here, we're actually, is what we need just a statement or what are they going to do the to back this up? Because the fear I have that happens a lot when we come to these areas of or start talking about problems between fans or harassment or social injustice is that governing bodies or companies can hide behind these statements and go, well, we box tick that. We addressed it. We said it was a barren. We said we won't stand. But actually, what does that mean? The issue that I have is that what we don't want is for F one to pass the buck to the circuit promoter and a circuit promoter to keep passing the buck back to F one. There needs to be as a collective as a championship, just as the FIA as a governing body needs to come together with everybody involved and go, how do we stop this kind of behavior happening? Because one of the really upsetting things that I've seen is that people are now talking about not going to races because of this behavior. To

"No, it's very, very niche and I definitely think that they're going to the upholstery supply places. When I was coming up, I pretty much determined that I was the only person under 45 doing that trade in the metropolitan. I would say maybe even in the world. There's nothing. You began to write notes and poetry inside the furniture. Kind of like a message in a bottle. Has anybody found any of the messages over the years in the poetry that you tucked inside the cushions and we did, I don't think anyone's found any of my pieces of things that I've done in them, but people have found two people found this work I did with Brian maldon who I learned from. We did for his 30th anniversary of his shop. He did, we did a 100 records that we made together. We were a band called the upholsterers. And we made a hundred records and put them in a hundred. He put them in a hundred pieces that year. So two of those have been found. People have notified us they found those in their keeping them. And they didn't publicize it or sell them or whatever. It's incredible. It's absolutely incredible. While working at the apprenticeship, you were also a drummer in two different bands. You were recording music in your bedroom as you mentioned. And you also became close friends with Megan white, who you married in 1996 and took her last name. Very forward thinking, very ahead of your time. What made you decide to do that? Was it just because it was a cool color? I don't have anything to say about that category, sorry. While you were doing that, you decided to open your own upholstery shop, as you mentioned, you named your business third man upholstery. Yes. The slogan you choose for your business was your furniture's not dead. And you wrote some of your bills out in crayon. And I was wondering if that was a design decision or if it was more arbitrary because that was the writing utensil you had nearby. I see it now when I work on furniture pieces that they're more sculpture than they are. Furniture, really. And something that was happening to me in the final year of my poultry shop, which was it was becoming more art than it was a way of sustaining a business and making money. I didn't care about the money anymore. I was more interested in the fact that I was wearing a yellow shirt and a black pants with a white belt and delivering it and giving the bill and crayon. And I got an obsessed with certain artists, and it was this one artist. I can't remember his name, but he was making counterfeit money. He was hand drawing counterfeit bills, one sided. And his art was to go buy things with that money. And he wanted to buy the object, and they would give him the object and the receipt and the change. And that was part of the artistic transaction. And I got obsessed with this and I started writing my bills in crayon and all this stuff. And it's not the way to make business in Detroit doing people's furniture. It was very performance art. Yeah, it was bizarre. And I knew I had started to get too far. I got this incredible piece, which was a psychiatrist's chair and couch. This was a great moment. I got to do this. And she didn't like dealing with me by the end of it, I think. It wasn't serious and commercial enough for her. And she had gotten eyed guy upstairs for my shop was building furniture frames. It was the perfect marriage, this guy would build frames. She got another set made and had took it to a different upholsterer and I knew I had blown it with this client and this is a sign, I think I'm too far into the art side of it, but I'm not selling my taking my pieces and selling that at art galleries either. It's sort of like, this is for nobody, but me. By 1998, you were playing in bands, including the henchmen, the go, two star tabernacle, and the freshly minted white stripes, which you started with Meg. Did you feel conflicted by pursuing these two very different paths upholstery and music? I just always assumed the music part was just going to be a small thing and not anything that would bring in any money or pay bills or be able to have it as a lifestyle or a choice artistic choice. I always assume that the upholstery part was going to be how I paid the bills. So I didn't take any of those any more seriously in that. Yes, I would rather be making music or I'd rather be ranking sculpture. But my assumption was always, oh, we got to gig this week, but probably 6 months from now, we're not going to get a gig anymore. But those assumptions started to slowly prove wrong. And it became more and more that I was now being taken away from the shop and working on music and making records and the artwork that went into that. And trying to get studio time and figure out a way to pay for that and balancing those too. And yes, slowly the upholstery shop was fading away. But I remember people from the garage rock scene musicians and friends coming to hang out at my shop while I was working. They coincided for a while there. In 2001, after releasing to somewhat under the radar albums, the white stripes exploded during a visit to the UK when DJ John peel said that you were the most exciting thing he'd heard since Jimi Hendrix. And life really hasn't been the same since what did it feel like at the time to go from zero to 60 in like three seconds..

"Me too. I think for us starting out. Podcasting was not. Oh we wanna podcast. What can we podcast about. It was podcasting just happened to be a really easy way for us to talk to each other. Without having to put on makeup new topic was what we were interested in and then podcasting thank commute vehicle rather than vice versa. So great. I think at least for me like i mean i love podcasting i would. I would start another podcast but would have to be something that i was equally passionate about Yeah for me. I wouldn't do it by myself if i was going to. Another podcast wanna do it with a co host again. Yeah i can't even imagine. How do you do it or so impressed with you. We were talking about you. 'cause we were like yeah. We're not involved in the podcasting community. But yeah you like now. Well although i did do solo for a long time but those suck. And i probably shouldn't have them up when i started brianca guests because then i was like then. I have to pay attention to the editing and make them sound really good. Whereas i was i was cool with good enough for my own voice and then describing them well enough and make sure everything. Look nice and so it. Was it weird pressure. When i started bring on guests but i realized the conversation was so much easier and as a listener. Oh my god. It's so much more fun to listen to to people than just one. And i was like well done done with solo episodes. I don't think i listen to you any podcast. That's only one person talking. Oh except for the scripted news. Podcast otherwise just so. It's hard to have a like to get the going. Yeah it is. It is and i do but they are very informational quick. Podcast listen to one person. The longer ones are definitely two or four people and there's got to be banter and laughing. Yeah yeah. I'm always worried that we laughed. Too much on our podcast. But i've mentioned that to a couple of people listen and they're like no. It's great i take out half of my laughter. And i actually learned how to make it not as loud because i've yet to do this. Oh yeah i forget to move away from the mic spikes through all leveling off. So i learned how to like bring my own laughter down and cut out at least half of it and it's still too much and i feel like most of my time. Editing is trying to make our like volume spikes even out of we do use. Do you use Service to compress your podcasts. So that they're all the same level. It's called off phonic a u. p. I is Oh you do okay. Yeah so that is a huge important thing for making sure that all episodes are the same. So if someone's listening through it's not like suddenly loud suddenly quiet like episode by episode but in episode it also levels it out. So yeah i do that. I just didn't realize that was. Oh yeah my terminologies all messed up right. Well i don't yeah you're more involved than i am. You might have better terminology. You can do it yourself. But it's kind of technical and hard. And i tried to learn and i'm an engineer and i couldn't do it so the laughs spikes throw it off. I do those individually. And i've actually done something that i just did it by accident. Once and then it worked. And i was trying to the fade in fade out thing in audacity stuff that goes between stuff and i accidentally hit that instead of something else with one of the left spikes and it brought it down really small but you could still here in. It sounded like background laughter. And i was like oh now. I just use that for every laugh spike. I just do that. And then i put it through. The laughter is still there. But it's not like blowing your earbuds out so no laughter is a good thing i keep hearing from a lot of podcasters like people say we laugh too much. I'm like shut up and listen to another podcast. If you didn't note is just very good. Final question what is one thing off. The thing is i lived in north asia for so long that honestly. Sometimes i automatically tune out noises absolutely. Yeah i don't even think about it. And i sent my friend. You know on messaging apps you can do like a voice mail on the too lazy to type. And i just said something and he wrote back so good to hear. The sounds of kevin do ended even notice. Yeah i once had a friend of mine that i was interviewing via zoom and she had her kid in her arms he was maybe one year old at the time and i was so excited to see him because she had left china and she was back in canada and i hadn't actually seen him after he was born and i was so excited that i ignored the fact that when he started to make baby sounds i ignored it completely and we just kept talking and i'm like oh i cannot take that out of the low though whenever i talk about that i always people often come into me but you know it it makes it feel authentic and i mean i think. That's one of the reasons people like podcasts. Shows that are recorded. Live because it feels authentic and real and it's not this lake What's the word i'm looking for. I don't know kind of premeditated or really like polished thing so really polish. Kinda i try to cut out distracting noises. But i never get gasoline about becker noises. Because i think that's part of my life in if you're here to about my life well as we talk about goes overhead. Yes can you hear it now. But i can finally hear the dogs now and there so faint in the background. Oh good that's right my my house. Oh i don't know what to call like a shelter dog home orphanage pack of them that you know of course. Somebody abused at some point. And now we live there. And so the past three years that i've driven by and they always look at me like you're gonna kill me today. Thank have i ever even look doing the i anyway. There's my soapbox thank you and goodnight.
