    Past Gas #150: Jeremy Clarkson's Strong Arms

    Past Gas #150: Jeremy Clarkson's Strong Arms

    Jeremy Clarkson is one of the world’s most famous authorities on cars. As Top Gear’s most notorious host, Clarkson has been a major part of car culture since he first started hosting the show in 1988. But to many outside of the car community, he’s despised for his offensive and controversial opinions. How did it come to this? Why is Jeremy Clarkson so revered by car enthusiasts, yet reviled by almost everyone else? Are we able to separate the art from the artist, or are his actions unforgivable? All that and more, for today’s 150th episode of Past Gas – on the notorious Jeremy Clarkson.

    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.
