This week on the Out of Spec Podcast we have special guest John Neff, with the impressive roles of Editor in Chief of Motor1 and AutoBlog under his belt. We took a deep dive on the state of automotive journalism and John’s progression through the amplification of digital writing in the automotive space over the last few years. The concept of bias, especially in the realm of Tesla, is definitely a challenge with managing a team of writers and content creators. We also look at video content, especially the advent of short-form platforms like TikTok. John is also an avid RV fan and we talk about his upcoming Winnebago Echo delivery and the potential of EVs in the RV space. Plus much more!
For the crew show we have Forrest, Austin, Kyle, and Jordan to look at our latest driving experiences. Forrest had the Lamborghini Huracan STO, a very different beast than the Performante. He then got into the M5 CS, which he was even more excited about. Emotions took a vastly different turn when he switched to the driver’s seat of the Mustang Mach-E GT. Thermal throttling for the masses, I guess you can say!
Then Kyle and Jordan reminisce about the Bronco on snowy Colorado trails, and we take an in-depth look at the newly-unveiled and much-anticipated Bronco Raptor. Is that peak Bronco? Or is it better to simplify the 2-door with a nice manual transmission? Sprinkle in some Supercharged V8 Escalades and a debate of Formula E vs. Formula 1 and you’ve got a fun show on your hands.
