Unscripted. Unapproved. Unusually frank discussion. Automotive journalist John McElroy taps into his vast network of auto reporters and colleagues to gather for an irreverent roundtable discussion of the latest news to come out of the automotive world. Together with his guests, it's an uncensored, no-holds-barred, tell-it-like-it-is conversation on what's wrong, what's right, and what's up with the auto industry.

Lively Discussion...But Disagree with Some of their Conclusions

Being from the Detroit area and having a love/hate relationship with the auto industry, I find this podcast interesting and engaging. I am a big fan of Peter DeLorenzo's Auto Extremist web site and share some of his views. That being said, the opinions in this podcast often reflect the insular and arrogant attitude of the domestic auto industry at large. They seem to point fingers at the government for the predicament the auto industry is in and apparently think it was government safety and emission regulations (among other things) that somehow led the domestics astray. They laugh and mock say that the government should stay out of the business (sorry, guys it's not like the government had a choice. GM and Chrysler are insolvent) and that it might be it good idea for an auto executive to be in charge of the auto companies. Last time I checked, EVERY domestic auto executive or car guy has failed their companies. The only domestic executive who was able to steer their company through our current choppy waters without going hat in hand to the government was Alan Mulally , who is not a "car guy" but was an executive at Boeing. I hope in future podcasts you do touch on the fact that the best auto executive are either foreign (The guy from Nissan and the Fiat dude) or outside the industry (like Mulally .) I'd really like to know who these mythical "car guys" are and when they are going to save the domestic auto industry?

Suprisingly Good

For anyone interested in the "inside baseball" of the Auto Industry, then this podcast is a good listen. The free flowing thoughts and comments are refreshing in a media with talking heads that usually cannot tell the difference between understeer and oversteer. It is not as much about cars as the business behind it. Still, if you like cars, give it a try.


Great show. Eavesdropping on a bull session with industry experts. If you are interested in cars and the industry, this a great find.
