Great show! If you like trucks.
This is a great show if you are into trucks or anything associated with trucks. Lightning and Holman are very interesting on their own merits but they always circle back to trucks. Being from the east coast I have no idea what King Taco or wienerschnitzel has to offer but I can only imagine. They both have unique insider perspectives from their day jobs. Once you become a listener you will understand that each host has an interesting perspective to offer. They each have their own charismatic qualities, and provide interesting perspectives. The jingles are addicting, you will find yourself singing them in between listening. That would be my only warning. The truck show jingles will become stuck in your memory and you will recycle them in your mind just like “the song that doesn’t end”
Long review, but I hope they continue to produce it!
An amazing podcast that has a lot of information, with amazing guests, and one and a half good hosts (you pick what one is the half) has kept me entertained while working heavy equipment and shape my next upcoming build! #yeahbuddy
You get 5 stars just for the jingles lol hope all is well stay safe guys
