You might know John Moltz as a person on the Internet. Many people do! However, he also appears in other guises, sometimes as a large, golden bull and others as a phalanx of beautiful swans! Usually, however, he appears as a guy working at a desk. Other important points that John Moltz would like to share:
John Moltz is fluent in English and conversational in two other languages.John Moltz is the ship that made the Kessel run in less than 12 parsecs. He’s fast enough for you, old man.John Moltz is actually made up of thousands of smaller John Moltzes, all furiously working tiny little gears to keep the larger construct you know as “John Moltz” functioning.John Moltz is a little too comfortable talking about himself in the third person.
Jon Armstrong is a long time blogger at the barely alive Blurbomat, a UX/UI consultant, a web/business developer, a photographer and the impetus for this show. In a past life he executive produced a popular blog and ran the business. Yes, business. Turning This Car Around marks Armstrong’s first foray into podcasting.

One of my Favs
I wonder if I’m an unlikely listener because I don’t have kids but I discovered turning this car around when John Gruber guest hosted and its been one of my favourites ever since. I’ve been a fan of Jon Armstrong for quite some time — always love your stories — and I have acquired a taste for Moltz’s dry humour. Lex is rich or whatever.
(JK Lex, you’re awesome too).
It’s very funny, even if you’re not a parent. If you’re planning to be a parent, it gives you a peek into what it may be like. You can learn(?) from their experiences.
The audio issues get cleared up by around episode #9. I was able to distinguish John Armstrong and Lex Friedman’s voices by around episode #7.
