    Past Gas #146: The Family Car Under Our Noses

    Past Gas #146: The Family Car Under Our Noses

    Ah, the “family car.” We each remember our treasured childhood vehicle differently, for it contained multitudes: road trips, melted gummy bears, questionable air conditioning... But what does the term “family car” mean to the auto industry? The family segment has had to evolve and change with the times perhaps more than any other type of car. Today on Past Gas: the societal changes that drove innovation behind the family car.

    Past Gas #145: Alex Zanardi is Han Solo

    Alex Zanardi is a champion, a survivor, and a legend. From his father’s garage, to Formula One, to spinning the first celebratory donut, to the Paralympic Games, this fearless Italian has been unstoppable. If there weren't so many people who witnessed his incredible journey in motorsport, you'd think it was scripted.

    Past Gas #144: Danica Patrick: Better Than Ricciardo?

    Past Gas #144: Danica Patrick: Better Than Ricciardo?

    Danica Patrick was one tough cookie, a spitfire, and all those other lightly patronizing names you might call a strong woman in a male-dominated sport. She’s also a self-made mogul, icon, and champion… all achieved before the age of 40. How did she get her start? How many records did she actually break? And how did she become one of the most notorious figures in racing, despite never winning a championship?

Ethancopes ,

absolutely amazing

I binge these episodes all day everyday to work and on the toilet I live donut and the amazing banter they have on the podcast, James, Nolan and joe, I love you guys keep it up!!!!!

Love Donut on YouTube, less on podcasts

The ads guys.. brutal. And cool if you have scripts but some are straight up poor efforts of reading through them word for word with zero personality or charisma. Just send us all the transcript to read ourselves at that point. Love the video content, maybe it just doesn’t translate as well on audio. Great subjects, just wish for better delivery.

Update: now that they’re back in studio, podcasting dynamic has significantly improved. Thanks!
