One of my hopes as editor of this august site has been to get a podcast off the ground. It was a back-burner idea for years, then Matt and Steph and I recorded a trial run in 2020.
For a variety of reasons, including a bit of a lack of emphasis on my part, that ‘cast didn’t take off. But we’ve tried again, and Matt and Matthew and I now have the first episode recorded and published, with more to come.
We talked about how average transaction prices are way above MSRP, the 2022 Subaru WRX and how we’d spec ours, and the best cars of 1992. Expect a similarly eclectic mix over time — we’ll talk auto-industry news, specific product, old cars, esoteric topics, whatever.
We’re still ironing out kinks such as scheduling and format — expect to see our mugs on video in the near future — and while we’ve set out to make sure the podcast is hosted at all your favorite places, it may take some time before we’re approved for places like Apple and Spotify. We’re in the process of approval now. Other hosting sites seem to have approved our musings but it could take some time for the podcast to appear on their platform.
So, for now, you can listen here. Feedback is welcome. And yes, I know, I need to use a different mic — I already have mine ready to go for episode two.
Stay past the end for a lively discussion about how our furry friends can interrupt a podcast recording.
