This week we're absolutely humbled to have Chris Rosales on the show! Chris writes insightful and poignant pieces that discuss car culture and how it fits in to culture as a whole. Give his work a read over at Car Bibles, trust us, it's just the kind of stuff we love to ponder.
In this week's episode Ian tells us about a time he had an encounter with toxic brosculinity. Dave gives Ian a music-themed license plate game, and our buddy Joe managed to find the EXACT OPPOSITE of the Booty N Pizza windshield decal guy. We love you everyone, stay safe out there.
We had a fantastic time talking to Chrissy and Jeff from the Everyone Racers podcast! They are super-experienced endurance racers and we had a fantastic conversation around endurance racing, vanity plates and rental cars. Thank you so much for hanging out in the virtual blanketfort with us, you're welcome back any time!
This week's episode is AWESOME, no two ways about it. Joining us in the virtual blanketfort is Syd, the owner, operator, artist, and all around awesome person behind OHOAT! She makes INCREDIBLE art and AMAZING things you should absolutely buy!
We're super humbled this week to have David Obuchowski in the virtual blanket fort this week! David's an awesome podcast host and producer, be sure to binge all of the Tempest episodes, and an all-around awesome member of the automotive community!
We'd be lying if we said we're comfortable in EVERY single situation we encounter. Press events. Bank lines. Urologist Exams. Basically every encounter with us equals at least one uncomfortable person and usually it's us. In this week's episode we talk about Ian's recent discomfort and how he'd prefer for his mechanic interactions to go.
In this week's episode Ian basically yells at people and tells them to get off his lawn, but like the car version. You know? We don't either. We love you!
That new USPS mail truck design putt-putted straight into our hearts. I mean come on, it looks like a cartoon! Anyway, Ian sees a crazy Juke, which we also love, we have tons of listener MyEyes, and a license plate game. We love you.
Ian never fails to impress! Besides absolutely dominating the license plate game, we discuss Ian's recent camping trip, and vehicles that are great in the winter and not awful during the rest of the year. We love you everybody!
We have a short and sweet one this week. We discuss being on Talon Homer's show, Ian's Ronin-themed FMKCars and Dave runs us through a license plate game. Oh! And we got gifts!
This week our virtual blanket fort is graced by Talon Homer! He's here discussing his latest YouTube Series, Drivin' Theater, cars and movies, and movie cars! All that plus Talon's fond memories of a Chevy Impala, video game racing, and a dash of therapy.
In this week's show we return to form and mostly talk about cars! That's right, it's an Apex Adjacent tech show, featuring cars! We love you everyone, please stay safe.
Whew. Okay. Take a deep breath and allow yourself to let out the ever so slightest sigh of relief. That's what we're doing on the second part of this week's show and we'd encourage you to do it as well. Oh yeah, and we also invented a mental health self-check based on the 5th gen Maserati Quattroporte. So yeah. We love you.
Look, we're going to level with you. Stuff is TENSE right now. Given everything that's happening in the world right now we've decided to split this week's episode up into two different parts. This one is a quick check-in between two friends to find out how one another is coping with everything. We'll come back at you later this week with another episode once current events play out. Please mask up, wash your hands, stay safe, and take care of yourselves and others. We love you.
In this week's episode, we host a virtual intervention/support group/investigation into our buddy Marquette's recent automotive purchase. We had a great time chatting with him, and we're looking forward to you watching/listening along.
Honestly, there isn't much we can say about this week's episode. There have been some absolutely crazy and disappointing events taking place, so in this week's episode we talk about the coup attempt and kick it over to ourselves from a time before it happened. We love you everyone, please stay safe.
Was this the 2020 any of us wanted to have? Ooof. No. Hard pass. That said, there were still some positive things we could pull out of this dumpster fire of a year. In this week's episode we reflect on the things that kept us sane and got us through, and that absolutely includes you dear listener/viewer. Thank you so much for sticking with us and we love you.
It's hard to imagine a tin foil hat that could tame Ian's mane, but in this week's episode it becomes very clear that he's going to need it. We love you everyone, stay safe and have a safe holiday season! Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays!
Are there lessons you could learn from this week's episode? It depends. Would you ever buy a Saab? Would you ever fill said Saab with old cans of house paint that leak all over and fill the car with fumes? Would you ever drive said Saab on track tires on snow and ice-covered roads? Well, then maybe this episode isn't going to teach you anything you didn't already know. What you will learn is that even when we're in a ditch, we still find things to be thankful for, and that includes you. We love you.
In this week's episode we reflect on a very specific event in the before times, a little time capsule of joy, panic, donuts, and shame. We love you everyone.
This week we're absolutely honored to have Stef Schrader return to the show. We talk all things puffalump, how Rolls Royce validated her automotive opinions, and PARSH things! Our main topic is about the demise and potential rebirth of Opposite Lock, one of the best automotive communities to exist on the internet. Oh and Jim Spanfeller is a freaking HERB. https://www.jimspanfellerisaherb.com/
Happy Thanksgiving everyone! Just because you're crying while eating turkey in your basement all by yourself doesn't mean that you have to be alone, at least from an audio/video perspective.
If you are going to go through the effort of gluing a creepy freaking doll head on the back of your car, you may as well go the extra mile of getting out the soldering iron and making it a FUNCTIONAL creepy freaking doll head. We love you everyone, please stay safe.
You know, not every episode is a car show, but every episode certainly is an Apex Adjacent episode. In this episode we lightly touch on cars, but mostly we talk about our mental states, why we took a week off, post-election stress, and feelings. All the feelings.
Ian is back in Denver! And not in his house. Yep, in this episode Ian beams in from his mobile blanket fort studio bathroom station. We had a great time catching up and sharing our respective car spotting and brunch pictures. Oh, and for the love of dog, GET OUT AND VOTE!!!
