Get Checkered
Formula One is the most expensive sport in the world and not many people know much about it—especially two Canadian women living in the heart of the Prairies. Catch Shanika and Caitlin, newbies to Formula 1, give their un-educated hot takes and teach listeners about what they learn about the sport as they learn it.
We got an iconic podium at the Canadian Grand Prix
The drivers came to our home!! The Canadian Grand Prix was a little wet and a little wild. Unsurprisingly, Max Verstappen took the top spot but, we were way more interested in what happened to the rest of the grid. Looking for memes and to stay connected?

The 2023 Spanish GP was... mid
At least the 2023 Spanish GP was less mid than the 2022 Spanish GP. We don't normally expect much excitement from this race, and while it wasn't an exhilarating race this year either, it was an exciting result for Mercedes in particular. Is this race signaling the start of a Mercedes resurgence on podiums this season? Only time will tell. Listen and let us know what you thought of the Spanish GP Looking for memes and to stay connected? Follow Get Checkered on ⁠⁠⁠Instagram⁠⁠⁠, ⁠⁠⁠Twitter⁠⁠⁠, and ⁠⁠⁠TikTok⁠⁠⁠.

Estie Bestie is on the podium baby!
The Monaco Grand Prix surprised us! Of course, it was a little boring but, the rain, and the bad luck of a few drivers, made the race exciting. Max Verstappen pulls off a masterful win and extends his lead ahead of his teammate, Sergio Perez, who struggled all weekend. Mercedes came with a new upgrade — side pods! And, Esteban surprised us all by landing in P3. Listen and let us know what you thought of the Monaco Grand Prix. Looking for memes and to stay connected?

The Boring 2023 Azerbaijan Grand Prix
YYC - join us on Sunday @ Hudson's Downtown to watch the Miami GP in person! The 2023 Azerbaijan Grand Prix was a bit of a snooze-fest, with very little action or drama to speak of. Max did Max stuff during qualifying, Yuki had some bad luck, and Sergio took home the win. The girls also spend a good portion of the episode being confused between the sprint race, qualifying, and the actual race. Check out our favourite Toto Tiktok: https://vm.tiktok.com/ZMYwSEWEN/
