Few voices are as synonymous with American automobile races as that of Ken Squier.  Known by many as the television voice of the Daytona 500 through the 80s and 90s, Squier brought racing to the masses on televison, and before that, on the radio airwaves with the MRN radio network.

On this week's podcast, our Hard Left Turn crew remembers Squier, who passed away on November 15, and his impact on the world of motorsports coverage.  Plus they look at a few of the latest news items from this week.
