TD160: Really Late Trucking News Trucker Dump - A Trucking Podcast

    • Careers

Well, I’ve been holding onto this episode with the hopes that I’d be able to include a main topic, but that’s still in the works. So I guess there’s no logical reason to keep hanging onto all this old news. Some of it isn’t all that relevant anymore, like the whole Canadian border thing and Covid news. But there’s also some more relevant topics here, including all the typical stuff like recalls, more safety blitzes (not the NFL version), moving forward with both the infrastructure plan and futuristic trucks, drug and health updates, and of course, all the things our government is up to.


Additionally, Scott Gunter a.k.a. Killjoy gives me a chance to drool all over his submission for the Trucker Grub segment. This time around, most of the listener feedback segment consists of new drivers wanting to join the Trucker Dump Slack group, but two long-time listeners also pipe in on mechanical woes and YouTube videos.
