Good episode? Give it some love!
Maximillion Cooper (@mrgumball3000) is the founder of Gumball 3000. The Gumball 3000 is a car rally which every year takes a hundred or so supercars on a crazy journey across multiple continents.  I have a chat with Max about the journey of Gumball from a one off rally to the global brand it is today.  Check out the video: https://youtu.be/lHnis00QLkA
