Episode 17 starts by introducing this weeks guest Erich Merkle joining us from Autoconomy. Erich joins us in the second half of the podcast for the main topics of the week. I then discuss the four door long box Ram 2500 with a cummins diesel engine that I drove during the past week. What an experience. We move along to the major news of the week segment. This week included-
- Cadillac to Create ‘Luxury World’ in New Ad‘ Campaign
- Hyundai to recall 2011 Sonata because of door glitch
We tried out a new section this week called tweetmeme. This week we focused on the demise of Hummer and peoples reactions on Twitter. Zeroing in on how people reacted both initially and after the news sank in.
Next came our main topics at which point Erich joined us. This week those topics included Toyoda going to Washington and the Toyota hearings, Hummers current situation, the upcoming New York Auto Show, and we touch on the future of the industry and Chrysler.
Last but certainly not least, we discuss the past week on both of our respective blogs, AutoBird Blog and AccelerateMpls. The week in review included- my video interview with Hagen Durant and my first drive video of the ZR1, along with Colin’s gas prices post.
