In conjunction with all of his writing, he is also the co-host of his own weekly podcast with Sami Hag Assad, called The Unnamed Automotive podcast…..and if you have’t listened to it, you should.

LBI Limited: Next Generation Car Guys
I'm bringing you an episode I recorded back in late summer of 2019, with a group of amazing individuals from a company named LBI Limited. These guys are really the shining example of what most of us car nuts have always wanted to do, but never did..... and Adolfo and Keith from LBI are the ones that for over a decade, have been hunting down and selling some of the most incredible vehicles in north america. I was lucky enough to have sat down at their stunning facility in Pontiac Michigan to have this chat, and as you'll hear, it was during a party they were throwing for none other than, Radwood Detroit. The place was buzzing with car nerdery and particularity of the 80's and 90's vintage era.... it was epic in many ways.

Christopher Pagani - Pagani Automobili America
In this episode I speak with the one and only, Christopher Pagani. If you don’t already recognize his name, this show should give a pretty well rounded understanding of what his business is, what they do, and just how special the things they make, are.

Peter Klutt - Legendary Motorcar
I am very excited to share with you the story of Peter Klutt. Peter is the founder of Legendary Motorcar, and I’ve wanted to speak to him since the day I first started this show. In fact, I wanted to have a good excuse to speak with him LONG before The Bucket Seat existed. So, I hope that you’re settled in, and are ready to be taken for a journey down the path of LMC, with the legend himself, Peter Klutt.

The Shooter: Keiron Berndt
Keiron is an automotive photographer who ended up on my radar solely through his work. I'd certainly admired it through multiple media outlets, but really zeroed in on him through his work for speedhunters. Finding him online is easy, seriously, just google Keiron Berndt - and you'll be overwhelmed by the combination of volume and quality that he has produced over the years. He has an photographic style that you can't deny, and a eye for those moments where we all wish we had camera in hand. It's behind the scenes, but from the front lines..... for as much sense as that makes.

Gary Klutt - NASCARnext Driver
Gary has an incredibly interesting background in the automotive industry, and has been around some of the most interesting cars that have been built, found, and restored in this country - so it's no wonder he ended up behind the wheel of an incredibly fast one, as a professional race driver in the NASCARnext series.

Adi Desai of Doubleclutch.ca
I had the pleasure of speaking with Adi Desai. the editor in chief of DoubleClutch.ca. Adi has a ridiculous collection of cars, he co-hosts his own automotive podcast, and is generally a source for endless automotive conversation, in a good way. What I loved about our conversation is how Adi has a finger on the pulse of new cars in North America - but he's also quick to give you a history lesson on old benzs, hondas and lexusesssssssesssesssss....... Enjoy!

Paris Motor Show avec Jodi Lai
Enjoy the breakdown of the Paris Motor Show with Jodi Lai, Editor-in-cheif at Autoguide.com. It's a great conversation about the show, what you'd expect to see there, and who you wouldn't see there. We also nerd out on our love for wagons, and I drool over the fact that she rolled up to the recording in a HELLCAT!

The Drift Judge: Ryan Lanteigne
Ryan is an incredibly interesting (and Canadian) individual who I came across in another automotive podcast, (go figure), called Maximum Driftcast - a show that you can very easily find yourself being lead down the rabbit hole of drifting. So Ryan came up as a person of interest to me through a lot of conversation about his involvement with the FIA and how its role plays out in the motorsport of drifting.... his clout in this role comes from years upon years of judging drifting across the globe, piloting his own drift car once-upon-a-time, and generally being a celebrity figure in the drift scene due to his tremendous knowledge and experience. If you've ever wanted a peak behind the curtain of drifting, from one of the most qualified to reveal it, this is certainly going to be an episode for you.

The Founders: Radwood LA 2018
Having the opportunity to sit down with the founders of Radwood was humbling, gratifying, and inspiring all at the same time. These guys have put so much on the line to make Radwood such a phenomenon, and although I tried not to pour my heart out about it, the commitment they've made to stoking the fires of automotive enthusiasm should continue to be celebrated - just as they've done, with Radwood. Radwood Guests: Lane Skelton - DWA!, Art Cervantes - DWA!, Warren Madsen - DWA!, Rick Deacon - ClutchKick, Mikey Kepler - ClutchKick, Bradley Brownell - Writer Extraordinaire

I give a pretty clear description once the episode begins, so I'll leave it to you to stay tuned for episode 49, on Oblivion: The 80's and 90's Car and Culture show, being held on August 25th in Milton, Ontario. You'll recognize Justin Sookraj's voice from a previous episode back in September 2017 - but we have a completely different topic this time around....... we're going back.

Live at Drift Jam
I'm here with another episode, and in this one, I'm live on location at Drift Jam with Jover, and Devo. Drift Jam is without questions, one of the best events I've attended. Motorsport, or not. If you love drift, haven't ever experienced drift, or run events every week, you can't miss what these guys are putting on - its epic.

In this episode I chat with Kyle Patrick, Editor in Chief of GTPlanet. As the name probably leads you to believe, GT being Gran Turismo originally, this episode is about the online world of cars, racing, and the tremendous amount of enthusiasm that is had for them around the world. We touch on trends in the gaming world, how the online world is integrating some pretty incredible technology to give drivers in simulators, some of the same feedback we experience in the real world. Force feedback wheels are one thing, but beginning to feel understeer in a wheel set up is pretty damn cool if you ask me. We finish with what Kyle and GTPlanet have evolved into, which keeps its roots in Gran Turismo and the gaming world, but is now impressively crossing over into how cars are behaving in the real world too.
