Uneven Show - Especially Lately
I’ve been hot/cold with this podcast ever since the Dan Roth hosting days. Roth was irritating, but was definitely a car guy and called out bad cars & stupid moves by manufacturers and the government. It made the podcast relevant and interesting to listen too. Ever since he left, Autoblog podcast has turned into the reaffirmation hour - all cars, all design choices, all government mandates … nothing is ever really criticized. Cost of cars going through the roof? Oh well! Noticing that creature comfort bloat is ruining the fun & skill of driving, as well as driving up prices? Don’t come here for any critique - that’s just how it is! Don’t think cameras everywhere, your car being internet connected constantly (providing quite the mobile hacking target), & the government trying to put mandatory tracking/reporting laws in stimulus bills is proper or good? It will never even be mentioned at Autoblog! You will get more talk about the weather and beer - I’m not kidding - than anything substantive (meaning, more than ‘I really liked how it drives’) about car performance or the corporate/political/financial landscape surrounding the industry. This where I might be expected to say I miss Innes Ireland, Csaba Csere, or Brock Yates. But you don’t need to go that far back or to some other media outlet. I miss Chris Shunk, Zach Bowman (ESPECIALLY Bowman) and yes, even Dan Roth.
