The Autoblog Podcast is one of the oldest and most-listened to automotive podcasts anywhere. The show features a rotating panel of editors and guests hosted by Editor-in-Chief Greg Migliore. The gloves come off and the lively discussion has everything from the most important news of the week to the best and worst cars we're driving. The show traditionally wraps with the popular Spend My Money segment. With nearly 700 episodes, the podcast is a must-listen for automotive enthusiasts everywhere.

“If you will”
Lol the first review I saw here matches what I came here to say — drink every time you hear “if you will!” (And please stay away from your car keys)
Where’s the podcast?
What’s the point of reviewing “Spend my money” if you don’t say what they bought! Covered that on the first one but after that forgot to mention it.
Be Less Typical
Overall the podcast has recovered from some darker days. Not to be a spoiler but these are stereotypical automotive journalists and it gets kind of tired. IOW they gripe about crossovers, how EVERYONE on the road except them can’t drive, and think every automaker should build AWD manual diesel wagons that nobody would ever buy. Oh, and complain if a car has upgraded wheels or pretty much any options. “Base cars FTW!”is the motto. These guys clearly spend zero time commuting in the real world.
The main host sounds like he has a perpetually stuffy nose with a Canadian accent, but at least keeps it moving, the “if you will” aside.
I believe the other host gets paid based on his use of the word ‘like’. “LIke, driving that car was, like, really fun. The engine, like, had a lot of, like, power and the seats were, like, really, like, comfortable”. The ‘spend my money’ segment always ends up with a recommendation for a Miata, GTI or random overrated Mazda model and should be avoided completely. Anyone who gushes over the derivative styling of a Volvo XC90 like these guys do, should be suspended from podcasting for a listener-determined amount of time.
