Podcast: Episode 80 – Diesel Driving Death March


Myself and Blake Z. Rong head into the Podcast Business Office to prattle on about cars. The main topic of the evening is Rong’s recent participation in the Audi A3 TDI Mileage Challenge. He was tasked with driving from Albuquerque, New Mexico to San Diego… on one tank of diesel fuel. That’s 824 miles of driving required. That’s damn near impossible, but two teams managed to pull it off.

From there the talk moves to the recent Motor Press Guild Track Day event, where I got seat time in a variety of vehicles out at Willow Springs.

Podcast: Episode 77 – Come join me on my couch…


Rather than take a week off, I decided to fire up the podcast-er-ator machine, plop on my couch, open a beer, and start rambling. This week I run the show solo. The topics range from my recent drive of the new Aston Martin V12 Vantage S Roadster to the weekend I just spent with a Lamborghini Aventador Roadster. Additionally, I talk about the recent Car and Driver Lightning Lap results while prattling away about all that I see that’s good about the Subaru Legacy 3.6R that I’m driving this week.

Podcast: Episode 75 – Whir: The best impression that Blake has ever done


Chris, Blake, and myself are all back in the same room for the first time in weeks. Blake has been off checking out the new ND Miata, and I was running wild down in Baja to test a brand-new BFGoodrich KO2 tire. We’re back now though, and Blake has shown up at the podcast palace riding the Zero SR electric motorcycle. My ride isn’t as cool as that (Elantra GT) but I did just spend a weekend with the 2014 Dodge Viper.

Hop the jump to hear more about all of that…
