Cars. Trucks. Life. Things that run. Things that don't. And anything in between. The Hooniverse Podcast is about the intersection of all things automotive and everyday life. That means we'll also talk about anything that pops into our little brains. From beer and wine to dogs to travel, and anything else that strikes our fancy in a given moment. Our attention span is nill. Our episodes are rambling. Pull up a chair, pop on some headphones or turn up the volume in your car, hit play, and stay awhile.Cheers.
Is this the end?
We've hit 300. This is a major milestone for this podcast, and it's the perfect number for us to take a pause. Our guest this week is Reel Big Fish bassist and car lover Derek Gibbs. We recorded this episode live at Four Sons Brewery in Huntington Beach, CA.
The ongoing adventure of used Audi RS4 ownership
Josh Ostrander just bought a 2007 Audi RS4. It's a rare car. With its Imola Yellow paint, it's finished in a rare hue. It's one of the best sounding Audi cars ever built. It's also a giant highlighter for just how annoying it can be to buy a car through a small used car lot.
Click play and listen in to Josh explain his initial adventures with his new super sedan.
Talking 'bout that C8 Corvette

Nice and chunky
Welcome to episode 297 of the Hooniverse Podcast. Today I have Josh Ostrander and Micah Muzio with me, and we dive into a bit of news to kick things off. First we chat about the new Lotus Evija, an electric car from the company that's all about lightweight. Next, there's a new Skyline and it lives in Japan. Finally, the C8 Corvette reveal is set to go down this Thursday evening in Orange County, California.
After the news, we move on to your questions. There are some great ones this week.
Finally, we close on a story about Josh getting ready to acquire a new daily driver. This one will be interesting, so listen up to learn what's going on, and why Josh has to fly to Seattle to buy it.
Audio Adventures with Micah Muzio
Kelley Blue Book's own Micah Muzio joins me on episode 296 of the Hooniverse podcast. In this episode, we talk about Micah's unique path to his current role, which is running the video content on KBB. We also dive into the fact that Micah is a helicopter pilot and owns his own Engstrom chopper.
After that, we answer a few of your questions and talk a bit more about cars.
I'm sitting solo in my garage once again. This time in a Cadillac CT6. I want to run this episode as a standard episode though, so we kick things off with some news.
First, we have the upcoming Lotus Type 130 electric hypercar. Then we shift over to Elon Musk's musings of his future pickup truck. Honda has set a new lawnmower speed record, and Cadillac has neutered its V-series cars.
After that I talk about some new work, the future of this podcast, and then ramble on about some recent terrible news concerning one of our friends.
