My name is David Newton and I am the host and creator of Roostertail Talk. If you can't tell, I am passionate about hydroplane racing. I have been around the sport in one way or another since I was born. My father was a crew member on several teams that I was fortunate to help out on as well. I currently live in Renton, Wa, have a 4 year old boy and in my spare time I teach reading to Middle School students. It is my goal to continue the hydroplane chatter in the off-season and get stories about the boats, that you may not ever get the chance to hear. But most of all, I hope you enjoy this podcast!
