Information to Automobile-Themed Podcasts to Take heed to within the Automobile or Wherever

From the April 2023 situation of Automobile and Driver.

We do not recommend studying automobile magazines whereas driving (though we do recommend studying them in any respect different instances). Whenever you’re behind the wheel and want auto­motive content material, your decisions are listening to Jan & Dean’s “Drag Metropolis” on repeat or exploring a few of the hundreds of car-­themed podcasts. Between nicely­-known choices, reminiscent of Adam Carolla’s CarCast and Matt Farah’s The Smoking Tire, and reveals with a particular accumulating, rac­ing, or historical past theme, there’s certain to be a pod to match your driving fashion. We just lately hung out cruising round Hollywood in a BMW M5 with former C/D editor-­in-­chief Eddie Alterman, speaking about what makes podcasts such a great way to find out about automobiles. He ought to know—he hosts one, Automobile Present! with Eddie Alterman.

Alterman’s curiosity in doing a podcast was based mostly on the for­mat itself. “It is such an intimate storytelling medium,” he says. “You’re proper within the listener’s ear.” Civilization started when people first discovered learn how to share data by speech, so it could be one of the simplest ways for us to study. “We have a tendency to soak up the nuance of an individual’s voice and what it is saying somewhat bit higher, bear in mind extra.”

Podcasting, with its pleasant, memorable nature, appeared like the correct method for Alterman to inform tales that join with historical past. “I wished to indicate the automobile on the intersection of all these fascinating human actions,” he says. “The Corvair represents human accountability and duty. The Jeep, we’re nonetheless so enamored of it as a result of it is our final con­nection to World Battle II. The minivan took place in a time of nice parental insecurity. That placement could make the automobile fascinating to individuals who assume they do not like automobiles.”

Not all hosts have the Gutenberg Parenthesis in thoughts when firing up the mic, however even should you’re simply listening to make a exercise or a commute go by sooner, the correct pod­forged can really feel like having a buddy alongside for the experience.
