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

Podcast-Image-Lead-75

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…

This is a special shorty episode, as it’s an On The Road Again episode.

Blake reviews the A3, CLA and Alfa 4C we discuss the merits of Chris Bangle’s BMW designs, abysmal Viper sales, Ferrari’s GT cars and of course Alex’s Morgan 3 Wheeler.

Podcast: Episode 70 – Hooniverse Gold Subscription Plan

Podcast-Image-Lead-70

Blake Z Rong and I are joined by Matt Farah. You know Farah from The Smoking Tire, /DRIVE, his handful of appearances on this very podcast, and now, /DRIVE+.

We dive right into it to learn about the move to a subscription-based platform for the /DRIVE video series. It’s a fascinating topic right up until we’re interrupted by a rather fascinating person coming into The Smoking Tire offices. Bucky Lasek temporarily stops the proceedings as Blake and I go mega-fanboy for a moment.

Things get back on track and Farah tells us more about the /DRIVE+ move. He has to leave to attend to Mr. Lasek (who is appearing on TST later in the evening), so Blake, myself, and Producer Chris get into their own cars and what they’re driving to finish off the show.

Topics range from a meager power bump for the Viper on to the introduction of the all-new Polaris Slingshot. The Mad Max Fury Road trailer comes up, as does the Infiniti Eau Rouge, which has been recently tested in prototype form by a small handful of folks.

From there we delve into a sad update on Blake’s Miata and a happy update on my Civic.

For the first time in a long time, the whole crew is back together. Hosts Jeff Glucker and Blake Z. Rong are joined by both producers, Chris Hayes and Zack Klapman. This means they dive right into what everyone has been up to, which means a wide range of car adventures. Blake recently returned from the same Nashville-based Nissan event that Jeff spoke about last week, Zack was driving all over the country for a few different things includeing an IMSA race and a country-wide Rally, and Jeff’s prepping for a few more adventures.

The talk changes to what we’ve been driving, which includes the 2015 Cadillac Escalade, and a few other machines old and new.

Podcast-Image-Lead-66

So we’re trying something new today. I’m reporting in from the road, as I’ve traveled to Nashville, TN to sample the entire Nissan lineup. After a day of driving, I am sitting down to let you know how the cars were, about a few special gems that were available to drive, and what I’ve got coming up when I gets back home.

Also, I’m apparently easily distracted by the chick in the AT&T commercial…

Make the jump for Episode 66.
