Great Show!

I've really been enjoying this show! They have such interesting, inspirational, genuine, down-to-earth discussions. They've talked to a lot of interesting people from car culture, and it's been interesting hearing their stories and insights. This show really gets at the human element of the automotive hobby - the connections people have to their cars and to each other. The hosts have great chemistry and are fun to listen to and the sound design is good, both of which which help. Thanks for the great show!

Love this podcast

Love this podcast because it’s so inspiring and interesting. Out of every podcast I’ve listened to this one is right up my alley, I just love everything that has to do with cars. It’s great to learn about all the people that come on this podcast but I also enjoyed hearing about Sung Kang and Emelia Hartfords background. Great people and great stories. I look forward to more podcasts.
