Great Podcast for Automotive Enthusiasts
I am so happy Dan Roth started another podcast as I have missed the autoblog podcast dearly. The format is similar and I appreciate Sam's industry insight coupled with Dan's opinions and near encyclopedic knowledge of car platforms.
Off to a great start
Dan was the driving force behind auto log podcast, which was better when he was still there. This new podcast brings his knowledge and humor back to the scene. My new favorite auto podcast.
Smart, full of insight.
Dan and Sam bring years of experience in the automotive journalism to a brand-new podcast which is designed to really dig into a lot of details that other journalists gloss over in favor of talking about how fast the car could go or something simple like that. You will find yourself lost in that fascinating world of technical details and what really makes a car go and how the future of our cars are gonna look like from two guys who are bona fide experts in the automotive field. Plus they are still fantastic enthusiasts and they do like cars that go fast it's just that they don't rely on the simplistic View of automobiles that you'll find a lot of other podcasts and even in the big magazines.
