My Favorite Podcast
Love this podcast. These guys are one Shunk shy of perfection, but what they've got is pretty great. As far as I'm concerned the interview portions can go away, I much prefer the discussions about the weekly garage, industry news, and the nitty-gritty arguments between two regular guys who happen to and irregularly impressive knowledge of cars and the American car market.
Oh, and because it's required - GTI, Galant, Time will tell.
Keep it up! -@ClaytonEBarnett on twitter
Great Podcast, Dan is a relatable auto enthusiast of a generation with perspective. Also Sam has some deep insights that bring us behind the curtain on the future of the industry. I like their deep “post hole” approach to automobiles vs just scraping the surface to cover the most topics.
