This time we’re coming at ya from lazy boy like seats of Chris’ Grand Cherokee, technically making this the most expensive episode we’ve made. If that’s not good enough, we’re being borderline useful by going over some of the biggest automotive events of the year. We also captured our journey through exotic Stoke-on-Trent too, so you can watch this one on YouTube if you want and sort of partake in what would be the most depressing open top bus tour in history. So sit thee down, drink thee brew, and get the skinny on 2016.
Remember when we kept calm and carried on? What happened? A nation of stiff upper-lips and orderly queuers seems to have become tainted by a class of motorist who can’t see past the end of their own bonnet. Today Andrew has reached breaking point. He’s way past eye rolling, there cannot be enough tutting, and the rage induced shaking of his hands makes writing a letter impossible – only one thing left then, a quick solo rant via the medium of podcast. The message, nobody’s a special fucking snowflake. HAPPY CHRISTMAS!
If Top Gear was a dessert, it would be a pavlova, so that begs the question, does that mean that the only fair way to describe The Grand Tour is an Eaton Mess? In this episode we tackle a subject so ingrained in car culture that we’ve dedicated not just the whole podcast to it but an extra half an hour. We go over the history, the memorable moments, and where we are now, while trying to mine our way down to the core of what has made the show so appealing. This episode is quite frankly the most magnificent piece of audio to ever come out of a shed. Power!
Do you like listening to people talking into your ears while images move in front of your face? You crazy kid! Did your mum give you too much Sunny-D or something? Well, how about this, you can watch our Episode V podcast while seemingly joining us from within Andrew’s new-to-him Wagon-R RR.
