    •Plus MuskWatch: This week, Elon crowd-sources comedy, lets us in on some artistic preferences, and the share price continues to fall.

If you want the top car news with a side of genuine Australian comedy, this is your podcast! Well done guys!

aaaaplay ,

A good podcast, could do with less “Musk Watch”.

I have really been enjoying this Podcast, it has filled a gap left but other podcasts such as those by CarAdvice. I really enjoy the initial segments and I’d really appreciate more car talk and a little less Musk Watch. I’d highly recommend to give it go.
