The best car podcast you're not listening to

The best car podcast you're not listening to

March 24, 2020

If you’re a car enthusiast, your love for cars knows no bounds. You’re constantly reading about cars, looking at cars, and watching videos of cars. I’m not the only one with this illness, right guys? RIGHT?! Anyways, for me at least, listening to other people sit there and talk about cars has been a tough sell. Until now. The nerdiest of car nerds finally have a car podcast that is both entertaining and informative. The hosts have a ton of actual experience driving the cars they’re talking about and they actually have opinions about them.    

The Carmudgeon Show, brought to you by Issimi (make sure to check out their INSANE inventory), is a comedic, information-filled conversation with Jason Cammisa (who you probably know from his Motor Trend Head 2 Head videos) and Derek Tam-Scott. They’re two car enthusiasts who are curmudgeonly beyond their years. Listening to their weekly episode has become one of the highlights of my week. No comment on whether the podcast really is that good, or my life is just that bad but Derek and Jason suffer from a level of car nerdery few in the world can claim. 

Proving you don’t have to be old to be grumpy, Jason and Derek spend each episode talking about what’s wrong with various parts of the automotive universe. Despite their best efforts to keep it negative, they usually wind up laughing, happy, and extolling their love for cars. Which just makes them angrier and more bitter.

Jason Cammisa is an automotive journalist, social-media figure, and TV host with over 250 million views on YouTube alone. Check out his amazing Ford Shelby GT500 Mustang review — without question one of the best review videos I’ve ever seen. Jason’s deeply technical understanding, made possible by a lifelong obsession with cars, allows him to fully digest what’s going on within an automobile — and then put it into simple terms for others to understand. Also, a Master’s Degree in Law trained him to be impossible to argue with.

 Derek Tam-Scott still tries. He’s a youngish automotive expert with old-man taste in cars, and a Master’s Degree in Civil Engineering — which means he knows how to be civil to Jason. Or at least he tries. With a decade and a half’s experience buying, selling, driving and brokering classic and exotic cars, he’s experienced the world’s most iconic cars. And hated most of them.

Some of my favorite episodes are:

After close to 10 years of unsuccessful attempts, Amir stumbled across a classified ad for a 1992 Ferrari F40 at a ridiculously low price. Surely, there had to be a catch, but that wasn’t enough to turn him away from giving the guy a call. At this point, Amir knew he couldn’t afford the car, even if it was listed at a “steal” price. So what did Amir do? He went out on a limb and took a gamble on the car by pulling out a loan equivalent to purchasing a house. After the car arrived in Amir’s possession, the journey to build it into a hillclimb special began.

It’s remarkable then that this car exists and even more remarkable that these photos could be taken in what is normally an extremely busy and trafficked street in San Francisco. What makes this car photography incredible is that cars of this value and significance are almost never driven on the street, let alone in the city, and an empty San Francisco could only happen during a once-in-a-lifetime event like COVID-19.
