    Our latest guest is Ron Zaras, Senior Brand Director for Hoonigan. However to hear his story in detail about how he came to Hoonigan you can listen to this earlier episode here. Today we are talking about a passion we both share and that is the World Rally Championship. After Ron's recent trip to Germany which you can watch in the Hoonigan Carcaine Abroad series, we talked about our love for Group A cars and the idea for a podcast came together. The Group A era was between 1987 and 1997 and included both Rally and Touring cars, and some might say one of the best era's of rallying.

    Big Mike / Walter Franco - Community

    This week we went down a different path with two of my friends, Designer Walter Franco and Builder / Host Big Mike to talk about the Automotive Community. But first let's take a look at what a community is. The word “community” has a strange power to it, conveying both a sense of togetherness and positivity.
    So click to listen where we describe what we think the Automotive community means? And more importantly why is it important to us?

    Jon Chase

    Today’s guest is the Hoonigan Design Director Jon Chase, however you might also know Jon for being the person behind DSTROYR, a lifestyle brand he created. But you might ask how did Jon start on this path? It all started by working incredibly hard at an industrial rubber company. Then things took a turn as Jon started at Famous Stars and Straps working under Blink-182 drummer Travis Barker. Jon spent time at Maisto as a designer working on diecast vehicles before some serious arm twisting from Hoonigan's Brian Scotto. This arm twisting had Jon join the growing band of Hoonigans and led to what is now his current position as Design Director.

First time listener to your podcast. I’m a bit biased, but your interview of our nephew, Mitch, was fascinating! It was very thorough, and informative. Not only are we proud of Mitch’s accomplishments, but if your other podcasts include stories as interesting as his, I plan to listen to them all. Thank you, keep up the good work.
