"Course of history forever. There's a lot of discourse on whether that was necessary or not. I tend to lean towards. We probably shouldn't have done that. But, you know, this is an open form. The second one was definitely not necessarily. To scare the Soviets. But two in the same exact spot. Yeah, so it was basically like war was ending war was basically over. We were allies with the Soviets, but because of World War II, the United States and the Soviet Union had both become ultra superpowers. And so it was inevitable that we were going to be wrestling for control of stuff. So we had developed this super weapon that just annihilate cities and ruins everything. And there's a pretty strong theory that Japan was retreating. Japan wasn't fighting anymore. And we dropped those bombs on Japan to be like, oh, just so you know, Russia, we have these. So if you want to take that into consideration while we're divvying shit up, you might want to do that. And now we have weapons that are more powerful by several magnitude and there are thousands of them around the world. Thousands of them around the world. That's why I live in a bunker. After nearly 6 years of catastrophic bloodshed, it came time to punish the people and companies who are connected to the Nazi regime. The treaty at Potsdam required the demilitarization of the German state, as well as the payment of reparation for damages. This meant Germany's car manufacturers were about to take a massive blow. Ferdinand Porsche, that Porsche, stealing James bit, was in serious trouble. From having Hitler as an automotive fanboy to helping the German war machine become more industrial efficient, the Austrian born grandfather of the 9 11 was up to his ears in Nazi affiliated business. And Forrest sends Porsche was sentenced to 22 months in a French prison. Luckily for Ferdinand, his son ferry Porsche junior and daughter Louise handled the family business while daddy was locked away and led the company to release their first consumer model, the Porsche three 5 6 in 1948. 22 months, that's it. BMW two has had to come to terms with their unsettling roots. The quant family not only made money from their manufacturing contracts, but also profited off of many stolen Jewish businesses throughout the war. Yeah, it's dirty. More than 50,000 slave workers were forced to work at BMW and other quant businesses to help fuel the Nazi war machine. And in 1999, BMW became a founding member of the foundation, remembrance, responsibility, and future for the compensation of former forced laborers, AKA slaves. The company also stated that quote BMW bears a substantial share of the burden of responsibility for these events and undoubtedly incurred a burden of guilt in committing these crimes. Hey guys, about that seeing a few years ago, V just want to say, hey, our bad. We didn't mean to do it. Will we be given money back? No. Will we change our name or shut down anything? No. But. And let's just burn. Both Mercedes Benz and Volkswagen were so immersed in Nazi filth that several executives went to prison. All of Daimler Benz's overseas assets were confiscated and then sold to help pay Germany's share of the post war reparations. It took until 1951, 6 years after the war, for Daimler Benz's operation facilities to be reconstructed. From 1945 until 49, Volkswagen was controlled by the British government. Soon after overtaking the VW auto factories and engineering intelligence, the Brits immediately saw potential in the soon to be mass produced beetle and helped resuscitate the battered brand. The beetle would go on to help kickstart the devastated German economy, and after four years of solid rebuilding, England transferred Volkswagen back to the new German government. Four years of rebuilding. You know how long I've worked for donut. 7, 7. Virtual donut for 7 years. I've done zero genocides. That's good. Thank you so much. What happened to American car companies after World War II was nothing short of revolutionary. During the decades it took for Japan and Germany to economically recover, the United States auto industry led global innovation. This time period is commonly known as the golden age of American automobiles. For example, will this overland went on to produce consumer minded Jeep models as well as trucks and station wagons before eventually being bought out. However, their Jeep is still World War II's most lasting and popular contribution to the automotive world. I mean, what about a motorcycle? I don't know about him. I mean, what about our horse? What did Jeep stand for? General purpose, and then it became Jeep. And then they came out with one of the best videos I've ever seen, which is all the guys in that open top Jeep going over those whoops. We all know what we're talking about. What I'm talking about. That's a great one. When I was a kid, so my initials are J EP. And when I was a kid, my parents used to call me Jeep. Or GP. That's cute. I'm gonna bring it up. I wish people would still call me Jeep or jeepy. You know what? I want to start calling you. You know what I want, Andy? What? I'm gonna hold you to this, because I know you're a good friend, and you'll make it happen. Yes. I want you to call me GP. And I want you to do it so much that everyone else does. I was listening to one of the, I've been trying to get people to start calling Zach Zeke forever. Yeah. It's not taken. When? All the time. Zeke. I've heard that a lot. I've tried. Cheap, Comey Jeep, or GP. Listen, and if you don't want this, I totally get it. But I want to start calling you teddy. Teddy, why? Teddy pumphrey. Why? Is your middle name? Is Edward? Yeah, which is short for long for Ted. Ted what? Yeah. So you go Ted, teddy. Ted is short for Theodore. Are you joking? No. One of my Friends is named Edward and he goes by teddy. Yeah, that's right. And then I also have two kinky, well, I guess we could, especially like the way I look. You know, I got the beard. I could afford a glue as a couple of hundred kilos. I have another friend named Jack and I recently just found out that his real name is John and Jack is his nickname. Jack is a sick name. Jack's one of my favorite names. But if your name, his name is John. It's not Jonathan. But he goes by Jack called John Kennedy. JFK, they called him. I can not wrap my head around that. And I know how to 3D model and shit. I don't understand that at all. I know. You don't have to you don't have to list your resume unless you want, should I? I'll do it later in the comments below. Okay. The American automobile industry was essential in the allies victory and helped save the modern world from fascism, at least for a while. Things are getting pretty scary again right now. As Donald Nelson head of FDR's war production board reflected, the American war production job was probably the greatest collective achievement of all time.

She makes my life wonderful. She's a queen and that's how she should be treated. Yeah, and that's how queens deserve to be true. Just find an article called Malay mail dot com saying revisit of east Saint Laurent's 1971 Nazi inspired collection, 71. But anyway, when I was getting rung up, another guy buying his wife a bag was like, dude, I love the channel. Thank you guys so much for making what you make. I collect cars. And I was like, all right, I collect them too. None of them work, but damn. Okay, it's okay. The collection, which is alternative alternatively titled liberation is inspired by the ready to wear styles of World War II period, specifically the clothes worn in Paris during the German occupation. So it's not like it's adjacent though. It's adjacent. We get to semi admin. Why? Because they designed the Nazi uniforms. Oh my God. This is why I'm not kidding. Nathan Fielder is doing God's worth with God's work. With some advice. That's the only brand that acknowledges the Holocaust. And he did donate a $150,000 to still up and running. I want to get one. You know what? I know what I'm getting everyone in the office. Everyone's decked. There's Hanukkah. Okay. On December 29th, 1940, Roosevelt delivered a harrowing speech. Harrowing speech, excuse me dubbed the arsenal of democracy to the largest American radio audience in history, quote never before since Jamestown and Plymouth rock has our American civilization been in such danger as now. No nation can appease the Nazis. No man can tame a Tiger into a kitten by stroking it. We must have more ships more guns, more planes, more of everything, and this can be accomplished only if we discard the notion of business as usual. The one American business Roosevelt needed more than any other was the auto industry. With a combined economy larger than most countries at the time, car manufacturers wielded unrivaled manufacturing power. So, shortly after the arsenal speech, FDR hired GM president William knudsen to serve as chairman of production management. Nuts and I think bunkie nudges probably probably related. Can Hudson, who immigrated to the U.S. from Denmark in 1900, worked at Ford and Chevy before his presidency of GM. So when he took the podium at the 1941 New York auto show, he had the industry's full attention and respect. Quote, bombers, big bombers are needed sooner than we dare hope to get them. Can I send warned the Detroit executives in the audience? We must build them at once. You've got to help. The first half of 1941 is crucial. Gentlemen, we must outbuild Hitler. Get me Tony Stark's dad on the phone. Note the time frame knudson mentioned the first half of 1941. Keep in mind that while those fire and brimstone speeches sound like an American battle cry, the country still wasn't committed to sending troops overseas. The vehicles engines and weapons initially requested from the auto industry were intended to support England and other allies. However, late in the second half of 19 41, those numbers and America's involvement in the war would increase in ways no one could have anticipated. On December 7th, 1941, Japanese planes, including the Mitsubishi a 6 M zero and Nakajima, AKA Subaru B 5 N twos, led a surprise attack on the American naval base of Pearl Harbor in Hawaii. And it would have been way worse, but all the Subaru spun rod bearings. I have no idea what that is. I just know that's some deep cut car stuff. So I thought it was funny. It was a deep, deep cut. This attack was a brutally effective maneuver. As U.S. forces were completely caught off guard and suffered over 2400 casualties along with a tremendous loss of battleships and other equipment. The attack on pearl harbor is one of the most significant moments in modern history. At the beginning of the war, the U.S. had the 18th largest military in the world. But even though the Axis powers were seemingly unstoppable, choosing to provoke the one major country that wasn't in direct combat with them? Well, in hindsight, the attack on pearl harbor was a very, very bad idea. Do you think the guys that did the Civil War reenactment at your high school? Stayed there overnight, or do they leave? I'm pretty sure they lived in those tents. Because this is what I'm thinking about as we've been reading this entire thing. That's all I've been thinking about. Totally committed in there. I think so, dude. They didn't leave and go stay at a Hilton Hotel. Holiday Inn. There was like horses. They brought horses. Do you think that they sat down like Ken burns style and wrote letters? To their wives about their fake battle, dance Margaret, during third period, they had that square. They had that square pizza again. I don't know how much longer I can bear it. And then their wives either read them or God damn it, Jerry, can't just play golf or some shit for real. Imagine that was like your thing, you got into. Just all in on. Imagine you date someone, right? For years. You fall in love. They propose. You have a great wedding. It's been three years, right? You got a baby, you got another bun in the oven. Dude shows up, decked out in gray. That's the confederacy. Okay, okay. Decked out in gray, and he's like, hey, this is what I'm about now. I'm gonna pretend to do a war. I'm gonna go live it Arroyo seco junior high school. For the next three days. For the next three days, I'm gonna go to a high school and San Luis Obispo. I'm gonna sleep on the football field and I'm gonna pretend like I'm a guy who thinks that they shouldn't free the slaves. You know what? You know what's even letters though. We had the square pizza again. Yeah. You know what I like now? Good news, Margaret. Today was chicken patty sandwich day. The lunch lady gave me extra white gravy on my chicken patty sandwich. I think she's taking a liking to me. But don't worry, Margaret, my heart burns only for you. They also did this during the week that open house was. So all the dads would go over to the Civil War camp when they fired the cannon and everything. Oh, God. It was like deliberate. I think maybe it was a recruiting drive. Oh yeah, it probably was. And you're like, hey, how did you get into this? And then it's like the dads from last year are now doing it. There's a new type of war guy that I've been seeing on TikTok. And I'm sure you guys have seen this too. The guys that try MREs from 1940. Oh my God, yeah. A couple of years ago, I went on honestly a 6 month deep dive hole on one channel in particular. And so tomatoes are acidic. So if you leave it in a tin can for long enough, it'll melt through the metal. That's insane. And so this guy will open stuff up from World

"Or say anything. He just keeps watching the pitch. So they finish the presentation and then he goes, I don't need to invent a group to speak to. It looks like you found a group of people you can already talk to. He said so this looks like a good thing. He didn't freak out. Yeah. Not only did he not freak out, he hired them. Now remember, this is a car company. This is what every ad agency dreams of. And now this tiny little ad firm has been hired to create ads for gay and lesbian consumers for Subaru. Now, of course, they had to get down to designing the actual ads. And John says this proved to be a little bit tricky. I mean, remember, they were breaking new ground here. And so John had to find ads that would fit both with the image that Subaru had been cultivating for years and years, and with this new group of consumers, it was trying to target. That's right, in fact, John showed me the first print ad that he did in 1995. And so what it is is there's a Subaru up at the top, right? And there's two women down at the bottom, and the headline is, it loves camping, dogs, and long-term commitment, too bad, it's only a car. It's good, right? It's good. It's good. And then down at the bottom, there's a picture of two women. Well, when the ad first went to the executives, the two women were together. The executives see this and they tell John listen, listen, separate them, please put some copy in between them. Yeah, they're like an opposite corners of the page. That's right, looking at each other, though. Well, they're not looking at each other. Looking over the text. Looking over the text at each other. From this John says the kind of settled into a plan where they would use references that were obvious to gay and lesbian consumers, but not really to anybody else. And at the time, there was Xena, warrior princess, was a show that was airing like on The WB network or something. And the lesbians loved Lucy Lawless. And everybody loved Xena. So one of the license plates was going to be Xena lover, XE, and one of them was P Tony, P towny, and the provincetown. For provincetown and the other one was a camp out. It was so subtle, the message was there, but you would have to look at the license plate on the car in the picture in the print ad to get it. John was in San Francisco when the ad campaign launched, he was at a bus stop and a bus pulled up to the stop with his ad on it. Immediately looked everybody standing there a bunch of old ladies look at the cars, don't do a thing, two gay guys and bulimia. I knew they were gay, gay, finely tuned. They both look at each other and just kind of smile, like they got it. Yeah, they got it. And about two years after this campaign started, Subaru sales started growing. The niche marketing was working. Remember those groups that Subaru had identified the outdoorsy types and the nurses and the engineers. Subaru had been marketing to all of them, and its sales were going up. And then, in 2000, Subaru made a bold move aimed right at lesbian consumers. Martina Navratilova. Subaru hired the retired tennis star who was one of the most high profile lesbians in the world at that point to do this big ad campaign. What do I know about performance? What do I know about control? Who do I know about grip? Everything. She knows everything about everything about grip. Pam derrien was responsible for this campaign. She runs a marketing firm called 15 minutes Inc and she introduced Martina Navratilova to the people at Subaru in the 90s. And she says, this was the moment when Subaru's niche marketing campaign became not so niche. She was on mainstream television commercials, promoting the cars. She was in print ads promoting the cars. She was an outdoor billboard advertising promoting the cars. She was in mainstream advertising. Not that there wasn't some pushback. Subaru had always faced resistance from some of its dealers who had problems with its print ads, but when ads started to hit TV, the campaign got a lot more attention. This wasn't just Xena on a license plate. These were really high profile ads. John Nash said there were angry letters, fears of a boycott. It's anxiety inducing only because you don't want to lose one of your favorite clients. Over something that's completely out of your control. If the business marched away, it was going to be because someone wrote a letter in crayon saying, you know, how dare you sell cars to these dirty gay people. Subaru didn't march away, they kept up the campaign and a year after they hired Martina Navratilova, they had their best sales year to date. And then in 2004, there was this big opportunity for product placement. There was a show on showtime called the L word, and Pam durin helped create a storyline on the L word where lesbian tennis player got an endorsement deal with Subaru. So guess who's having an event and I want you to come. Subaru? Yeah, so Subaru is hosting a dinner. Some kind of charity event to support the arts in the public schools. This will be teaming with the who's who. Oh, how does that? Pander darion says all of this was a really big deal. All of this was a watershed. I kept using the term niche marketing and she kept shutting me down and saying, Subaru went so far beyond niche marketing. We're a more comfortable society. I mean, who would ever think that an ABC program Modern Family two weeks ago would have a 9 or 8 year old transgender character on? This is not niche any longer. This is just being out and proud and owning who you are and living in a diverse inclusive society by about 2006 Subaru had grown into a very steady success. It wasn't Toyota wasn't Ford, but its numbers were going up and when the recession hit Subaru was the only car company in the U.S. not to lose market share. But in spite of the success, Subaru seems to have kind of changed direction. I mean, if you look at their ads now, there's no Martina Navratilova, no Xena. Instead, most of the ads feature heterosexual kind of outdoorsy couples on their way to a hike and things like that. And at a moment when our society has become so much more inclusive, it's strange, like, why did Subaru back off? We have that after the break. This message comes from NPR sponsor Dell Technologies, with tools to empower the innovator inside every growing business to do more with a latitude laptop, Dell Technologies recommends Windows 11 pro for business. Find tech that suits you by calling a Dell Technologies adviser today at 8 7 7, ask Dell. I called Subaru and I asked a spokesman, any said it's true, we don't directly target gay and lesbian consumers anymore. Our ad campaigns these days focus on our customers hobbies and interests, like mountain biking and kayaking. Right. Pam derrien has a theory about this. She says, since the 90s, when this started, so many more people are just living out and what was niche is now just much more mainstream. So niche marketing is kind of passe. Right, like niche marketing became a victim of its own success. And of course, that raises the question, do ad campaigns actually influence the culture, or do they just reflect the culture? Yeah, I kept asking myself that question in the answer is I honestly don't know. I put that question to Amy, the woman from the beginning of the show who owns a Subaru and loves the Subaru. And she said, honestly, she does not know either. But then she told me this story, Amy went to college in small town, Kentucky, in a place that was not especially friendly to gay people. She did not have an easy time. And then after school, she moved to Washington, D.C., and one day she's in DuPont circle, and she sees this Subaru ad. And I remember seeing this ad on a bus stop that said, it's not a choice. It's the way we're bored. And it made me smile. It made her smile because it was talking to her. It's not a choice. It's the way we're born. She knew exactly what that ad was saying. And not everyone would.

"Ask Dell. I'm Gregory Warner, posted the podcast rough translation on our new season. We're telling stories about the cultures of work. The 9 to 5 it's a myth and rest around the world. I came into this totally prepared to defend my American productivity. At work, the new season of the NPR podcast rough translation. In the early 90s, Subaru was in trouble. Sales had been slumping for about 7 years, Subaru was competing against giants like Toyota and Nissan and it was losing. Tim Bennett worked in sales distribution for Subaru back then, and to him the problem was pretty clear. Subaru was having an identity crisis. These were not sexy cars Tim says they were boxy reliable wagons with a certain kind of feel. It's granola, it's 10,000 maniacs. It's crunchy, it's hippie. It's a professor in a tweed jacket. Oh, come on, who does not want a 10,000 maniacs card? They are a great band. They're a crepe ant. But, but companies want to sell to mass markets and not just hippies and professors. So Subaru hired a cool ad agency, the ones that had come up with the just do it slogan for Nike, but even they could not make Subaru's hip. The ad campaign went nowhere. Morale at Subaru was plummeting, raises, and bonuses went out the window, and Tim says salespeople started making all these really dark jokes about how if things got any worse, they were just going to have to start sending new Subarus directly to the scrapyard. If you're not on a winning team, you're on a losing team, and nobody wants to be on a losing team. And is that what it felt like at the time? Yeah. But the company realized one type of Subaru was actually selling pretty well. These were cars with all wheel drive, the kind of cars that are popular in places with bad weather. So Subaru said, all right, let's start there with the bright spot. Let's meet the people who are buying these cars. They ran some focus groups, and they identified four categories of people who were buying Subarus. The first category, they called the rugged individualists, basically the outdoorsy types. So those are the people kayakers mountain biker skiers. There were technical professionals. Technical professionals. Engineers. Gotcha. That sort of thing. Educators. Teachers. Teachers. Professors. Healthcare professionals. Doctors nurses have to get to the ER, all kinds of weather. So it's a random assortment of professions here, but within those groups, there was a common thread. Women, a lot of Subaru owners were women. And in a lot of cases, they were women who identified themselves as head of household. Tim Mahoney was running marketing for Subaru at the time, and one day he was watching a focus group in San Francisco behind a two way mirror. One of the guys who actually worked for our research company who happened to actually be gay, he says, yes, all my Friends that on Subarus or lesbians. And it was like one of those moments where everything came into focus and it's like, oh, wow. Tim Mahoney realized he may have just discovered a 5th group who loved Subarus. Lesbians so now Subaru has to figure out two things. Number one is this true or is it just anecdotal? Is this actually a significant consumer group for Subaru? And then if it was, how are they going to market these cars? To lesbians. So Subaru got in touch with mo Ryan Nash. This was a tiny ad agency based in Manhattan that specialized in marketing to gain lesbian consumers. John Nash was the creative director at the time. What was the first campaign you worked on? It was dala mattress. Dial a mattress. Yes. They're on queens. John and his business partner Dave Moran were both openly gay. And they would go to these big companies and they would pitch them. They would say, look, gay and lesbian consumers are a big deal. They have money. And we know how to talk to them. Hire us to design new ads for them. So with dial a mattress. He did these billboards and beautiful photography of a guy like it was all very already a guy laying on his stomach, but you could see he wasn't wearing any clothes, but he had the sheet pulled down. Who you sleep? Yeah, here it is. Who you sleep with is your business, how you sleep as ours. Dial a mattress aside, it was a tough sell. This was the early 90s, it was during the aids crisis, and a lot of companies would not talk directly to gay and lesbian consumers because they were afraid of alienating heterosexual consumers. In fact, John says a lot of the companies that did advertise to gays and lesbians were what he calls the sin industries like booze and cigarettes. And then out of the blue comes this call from Subaru, saying, hey, we think lesbians might be one of our most significant markets, and we need to confirm it. So John and his colleagues went out to Northampton, Massachusetts, Subaru's research said a lot of its cars were being sold there, and they gathered a little group of local Subaru owners together into a room with one of those two way mirrors. So we get up there. We're in the, we're in the observation room, which always has like M and M's and crackers. It's a very dangerous place to be, especially if you are on any kind of a diet. So there's all that candy, and then the women start coming in. But only women. You know, that's the amazing thing. 100%. There were no men. No, no men in either group. John watches the women from the other side of the mirror while a researcher asked some questions. What do you use your car for? I want to move my dog from here to here. I like throwing my stuff in the back and going camping. John said as a human being, he hates this kind of stereotype. Okay. But as an ad guy, this is sort of what you do. You break people up into categories, you say broadly, here's what they're like. And then you try to sell stuff to them. So this is exactly what he's doing. He's looking at these women and he says to himself, I think they are part of a specific group. I'm like, these are lesbians we're talking about. They're lesbians. Okay, not just that, but these women seem to love their Subarus, so John and the ad agency drive down to cherry hill, New Jersey, which is where Subaru is headquartered to pitch the company. This was not a small deal. I think a lot of us forget this, but the early 90s were not a particularly progressive time, right? This is the era of don't ask don't tell in just a couple of years Bill Clinton was going to sign the defense of marriage act, which would effectively say same sex partners can not be considered spouses. And even inside Subaru being openly gay was not easy. Tim Bennett, the guy who saw Subaru having an identity crisis, he later worked on this campaign. Tim is gay, and he never came out at Subaru because he saw what could happen if he did. There was a out gentleman who was gay in the mailroom. There were people in the office that didn't want him to deliver mail to their desk because they're afraid they're going to get aids. So this is the environment. I know a lot of people think, eh, they can't be. No, it's what happened. So here comes Moran Nash into this conference room with about 20 Subaru bigwigs. John and the team start a PowerPoint presentation, here is who we are. Here is what we were doing in Northampton, and then. And then it was time for the bombshell basically, and I think that was like 6 or 7 panels into this PowerPoint thing. You click the button and up pops this thing, you know, the target consumer in Northampton is a lesbian woman. John is braced for resistance. I mean, you have to remember his agency had been going to companies for years with numbers, statistics, data saying, look, gay and lesbian consumers are very important. You need to start marketing to them, look at the numbers, and companies had been looking at this and saying, very interesting, but no thanks. And now here he is pitching to a car company, which is like the definition of mainstream, and he's telling them you got to market your cars to lesbians. In the middle of the pitch, John keeps sneaking these glances at the president of the company trying to figure out what he's thinking. He does kind of nods and he sits and he crosses his arms and you know, you always learn in business that when people cross their arms, they're closing themselves off to you or something crazy like that. That's why you always have to be careful to cocktail party, don't crush your arm. Other people around the table are also looking at the president of Subaru, wondering what's he going to do? What's he going to say? But he doesn't do.

"Hey everyone, as you may know, it is Pride Month. So it's not very surprising to see a lot of marketing targeting, LGBTQ consumers. But today's show, it's a rerun. It's about the 1990s, a time when inclusive marketing wasn't really the mainstream. Many people weren't using the term LGBTQ and instead were saying things like gay and lesbian. This is the story of how one company started actively considering those consumers. It's one of our favorite episodes. Enjoy. Amy konop lives in Indiana and owns a white 2004 Subaru Impreza. It is not a really nice car. It's really banged up. It's almost always dirty. Even my three year old daughter sometimes seems to prefer to pretend that the other cars that her preschool are her car. But Amy really loves this car. This is the car that she drove through a snowstorm in Indianapolis to bring her newborn daughter home from the hospital. I just kept looking in the rearview mirror my wife was sitting back there with the baby. It was a really happy scene in the backseat, but I was just full of terror. The funny thing about this not so nice, but beloved car is that Amy ended up in kind of a bidding war over it. About 5 years ago, her friend Erica was selling the Subaru. Amy and her wife wanted it, and so did another couple, a guy and a woman. And Amy thinks that that couple was offering about a $100 more. But Amy's friend took the hit. She sold the Subaru to Amy. She just had one requirement. You can not peel the Human Rights Campaign sticker off the back window. And if you don't understand exactly what I'm saying, let me let Amy explain it. She sold it to us because she wanted it to go to another lesbian couple. Erica wanted her Subaru to go to another lesbian couple, and part of the reason Amy's laughing here is that this has become kind of a stereotype that lesbian women love Subarus. The car even has a nickname. Erica always called it the Les boru. This is not an accident..

"Sort of investment in with toyota but toyota developed a vehicle. They put it all together. Subaru came in through their badges on it. And that's the difference and that is just sad like subaru. You're better than this. We know you are. I know the world's going to vis-. I know that that's the future but you can do better than just being a toyota with different badges. It's just pressing. Well i i mean it makes me question. What subaru has going on with their engineering teams. I mean electrification has been in the auto industry for a long time now and this is the first anything. We've really seen from subaru. And it's just toyota. So i mean we know. Toyota has a stake in subaru. Yup about eighty twenty three percent these days. I believe i mean. Are we getting close to a point. Where toyota's subaru completely. I mean i've been saying this for years. I think you're set me up for this. I think within ten years. Subaru is owned by toyota. Mazda is owned by honda. That that's purely my prediction. But i just think that subaru mazda particularly they're big enough to remain on their own for now but they can't remain independent for long and that's the world we live in and i think there's just going to be this consolidation and they're both gonna get swallowed up. I don't know. I mean it's super who has a has a pretty lengthy history so it was noda and i haven't been watching subaru. Sales figures like a hawk but to the best of my knowledge. They're not they're not doing terribly. Bhai there on the twentieth day dipped a little bit. But everybody everybody. They're they're fine ish. It's just that i mean why. Why are they i mean. Why are we seeing more from subaru in terms of of investments in new tech. I mean that's the question that nobody can answer except the folks at subaru. What we've been seeing from the new. Wrx that looks practically like the one that exists now that it just has shades of corolla. If i'm honest bit it just feels like that. You know i don't know this. It just feels like from covering this industry that something is happening within toy or within the subaru that they're just positioning themselves to be like. Hey toyota or ready. Swallow us up. Were ready to you know so you so. Toyota is a coach builder for bmw now. Subaru is taking. suv's from toyota. I feel like this is a movie of the week. I feel like we could. We could really write something juicy about this and get a get a big movie deal. This is invasion of the body snatchers. Basically it could be. I don't know. I'm going to give subaru the benefit of the doubt. Because you're talking about a teaser. At this point there's there's still more the images they're identical like. That's the thing that you know mommy. The next subaru ea is different. Maybe whatever it's just the fact that we are seeing like the forest or wilderness doesn't come with a turbo. That's a minor thing. Okay whatever that the next wrx basically looks like the current wrx. That the subarus. I e v that it's essentially a rebadged toyota. It's just these confluence of things that makes me feel like it makes me worry about the future of subaru not next year but more like eight to ten years down the line. Yeah it'll be an interesting time for sure folks. what do you think email us. Podcast motor one dot. Com is super lost. Should we be concerned about subaru. Or maybe this is just an experiment where people by electric subaru's instead of investing into their own. The oldest rebadged toyota see people bite. I dunno podcasts. Dot com will. It's i don't know. I don't really have an opinion on it i. I haven't been super interested in subaru since a well. Since i had my hopes and dreams crushed when i bought a very rusty ninety one legacy turbo that i had dreams of recreating colin mcrae's epic rally car only to find that i couldn't even take both underneath because it was. I mean it was literally that rusty and my hopes and dreams were dashed subaru. We love you but yeah where the bassett subarus and bad times and subaru's but still kinda like them so it is what it is. It is what it is. Podcast motor dot com. Just send us your emails like you didn't do last week but we do have some. We do have some comments. We do have some comments on youtube so that we can go over just a quick podcast motor. One dot com is the email address. We've received no emails last week. We were street. No comments on our post at motor one dot com last week however we did receive comments on youtube but guys and we get it. I mean it's it's towards the end of summer people are out doing stuff. Yeah that we got big labor day weekend coming up here. Hopefully you're listening to the podcast relaxing on the lake somewhere at a barbecue. Somewhere you with friends somewhere. Shoot us have email say. Hey i'm sitting here. And i'm near the lake and i can see some guy in an f. One fifty raptor trying to back his twenty two foot boat into the volt launch. And he's he's reverse like eight times now and he keeps backing into the sidewalk. Sunday stuff like that. We wanna hear. We want to hear some of your stories so just real quick so just some of our youtube comments from this week because we like to share those with you because also we like to shout out our youtube commenters and we kinda think you enjoy it so from our buddy vampire bear he said thank you very much again for reading and talking about my comment.

"There is an actual difference switchable. I'll get to that. And i think the high floor looks better just because it has bigger tires but yeah i mean when you look at this image right now i mean the wheel gap in there is just. It's just it's just insane. And how much better would this truck look if you just filled up that we'll gap a little bit. I mean i don't think this is a bad looking truck. No of course. Of course we get the high locks in the united states. I mean we have the tacoma Which is similar but different. But it's interesting. The toyota brought the gr treatment to a truck. And they're going for a definite street truck kinda theme here and in in the crazy world. That is twenty twenty one when trucks are just only about big off-road. How high can you jump. Any automaker saying hey. Let's create a little street truck. That gets my attention. Because i'm all about this. The front isn't too bad but if if the tires were just a little bit bigger And you know of course. Gr sports they do lower the suspension. But the engine and this is the same. I don't have i don't have the engine staff but if i remember correctly it's just it's a diesel that you can with an automatic transmission So i mean on that front. It's not really that aggressive. They do dress up though the truck with body. Trim with some black trim. But that's the big thing on on this is yet. It has the lowered suspension. Now i did mention the high floor. Here's a picture of the toyota highlights reel. gr sport much better. I don't know if it's like drives a much better. But just the difference in the wheel entire package makes all the difference right. The the wheel entire package is a little bit bigger on this truck it sits at normal heights so this is just an inch higher than the low-floor two wheel drive version. I mean everything else is pretty much the same. They they give it some different graphics. They give it running boards on the side. They give it to the one of those cool kinda as as i think if it is like ninety style just kinda style bar at the back behind the bed. I'm trying to look toyota. Didn't didn't have any pictures of that. Style bar But i mean it's got the built inside running boards the the wheels. Just look so much better on this it. It fills out the the gap in there so much. Better i would. I would wonder what would the low-floor look like with these wheels and tires changed these wheels and tires because these. Aren't these unaggressive off road tires. I mean this is technically the four wheel drive truck butts what what are those. Look like bridgestone dealers. I think which is a fairly tame light truck tire It's it's not an offroad theme truck at all. I have an answer for you about what it would look like. Here's the image of a tacoma x. runner basically the same idea but with the federal package. I can't believe you got that. Because i have an extra honor image ready to go. I was going to pull that up. Next saying okay cohort. Here's all pretty much the same as you beat me to it. Okay here. I'll pull up my image. It's it's well it's actually. It's the same the same we're not that in sync it's the same color whereas there we go watch better but the they're still real gap though how come. I never noticed that before. But some the x. The x. runner is ruined for me. Now no it's unseen it's not. It's not now. There's some gap there but it's a truck. It's going to have a little bit of gap. It's not nearly that truck adjust just as a truck but it looks so much better than what. Gr sport is doing now. I mean i wish we could get a new tacoma. Gr sport let it let it pick up where the x left off. Because i loved this truck they they didn't really do anything to the engine it. It wasn't it wasn't a speed demon by needed and nothing to the engineers but it was it was a little lower it was just a little meaner you could get with a six speed manual transmission which and that truck. You wouldn't need a lot of power to just have a lot of fun with it so mean that that was kind of an interesting. Toyota's story that qatar. I because like i said automakers right now when it comes to trucks. They're just thinking bigger badder. How how wild offroad can we get and comes toyota. Hey we'll do a gr sport of the highlights. But then they kinda botched it on their to bill. Drive of the four wheel drive. Looks fine but speaking botched toy subaru folks. Liotta away. i actually. You're not wrong. So folks buckle up we're gonna we're gonna let bruce have an open mike here for a little while here. Let me get something else. Came out this. Something else came out this week. That subaru yesterday. As of this recording they gave us the first good teaser. Image of their saul. Tara which is what. The first subaru electric vehicle is going to be finally an electric subaru weights. But so among those images. And i can show you so. If you're watching on youtube you can see here. This comes from courtesy. Our of our buddy dom from inside. He did some kind of photoshop. Magic and gotten this image of it the actual image that it comes from is right here and so you can see. It's upside down it's reversed but you know a good guy and he knows what to do so he got the good image for us. Yep and we'd start looking at it and we looked at it for a moment. And i wrote the story and looked at it a little bit more and i'm going to zoom in here. It is i- tentacle to the toyota busy for which we know is on the way and i don't mean identical in like some sort of hyperbolic way they saw. The differences are the subaru has matt black fender flares rather than the toyota has gloss black. The toyota has a gloss black roof whereas the subaru has A body color and other than that folks if you're watching this on youtube they're the same vehicle. Say hello to the new toyo baru. And i don't know what subaru is doing because i don't know how they ever expect to sell any of these when it looks exactly the same as the toyota await. You're thinking oh i bet. They changed the interior well. Subaru released an image of the interior. Servants says a bit dark but e clearly see the infotainment system is exactly the same. There are h. controls right underneath on both the same. A rotary controller is on the center console the same touchscreen controller is on the center console and both of them have this instrument cluster. That set far away from the steering wheel. It's the same vehicle. It is just badge engineering and not just not just badge engineering but like eighties. Gm badge engineering like literally. Here's here's a different badge. We'll just put this badge on the same car and it's now something different and at least on the beer z. And jr eighty-six they swap out the nose they swap out the rear. It's generally same vehicle but they've got a couple of differences in this case. Judging by what we're seeing right now it's just literal badge engineering. and it's kind of embarrassing for subaru. I feel like i assume bay air closed. Some sort of investment in with toyota but toyota developed a vehicle. They put it all together. Subaru came in through their badges on it..

"Liveable yeah and and bruise on my knees from the eighty six Did we watch the andrei says. Did we watched the idris. Elba king of speed I didn't i. Didn't i feel bad that i missed it because i heard it was good but i didn't see all right This is frazier's follow up. But you may have answered. And i i still don't understand not other using your suggests the place to stop and others. You should make a specific jersey not all restaurants or on a good road so if he's asking what about what restaurants are on good roads. I don't have the first clue. Mean getting to the top of the stelvio pass and having an espresso and a crappy pizza roads too busy and the roads busy pointing typically places that are in the middle of nowhere on great roads. Do not have great food. There's that place deals gap on t tail. The dragon garbage food terrible cheeseburger an average fries. Only show the only game in town right You know newcomb's you know i. I'm sure there are There's a restaurant somewhere. That's on an amazing road and it's worth getting to. Oh you know. There's one. I can think of one in l. a. saddle peak lodge. Saddle peak lodges in the canyons in the malibu canyons. It's at the bottom of huma and it. It's like driving into a colorado log cabin and it's one of those places that serves a bunch of different kinds of meats. You can get bore and elegant stuff like that and it's a very high end restaurant It's a little snooty huge wine list Very interesting experience You don't you don't have to drive the canyon road to get there but if you drove to get there it would be. It would be very nice so yeah saddle peak lodge in malibu. That's where food intersects with road. Malibu rocky okay Winery the place. There's definitely like in northern california. You know there's definitely like some alice's restaurant you know up in up there and nothing wrong with alice's restaurant and make a nice tuna sandwich up there it's not a major not getting michelin stars. But it's a good drive so sure there's you can get an okay meal on a bunch of nice roads like big sur. There's some enough with that.

"Eight hundred gs is a a good entry level adventure bike it's The the twelve hundred The are twelve hundred. Has big boxer twin. It's a lot more power. And i wouldn't. I wouldn't do that as a first bike. the f. Eight hundred has a parallel twin. It's a little narrower. It's it's as tall or almost as tall But it's a little lighter Easier to maneuver. So i might try something like that As far as an adventure bike. i mean the harley panamerican That i wrote recently and you could see my review of it It has a big powerful engine up to. I believe it's one hundred and seventy horsepower. But you can write it in a reduced power mode where drops the power down to one hundred fifteen horsepower so you can really It was not super heavy. it's pretty pretty maneuverable. pretty agile. The height adjustable suspension means that you come to a light and it you know it. Settles see santer flat foot and it has traction control in abs. and all those kinds of things so You're you wouldn't get into so much trouble. Alternatively you know something deeply used us us keilor a used forever. yeah Yeah pretty much Justin becker has a okay twenty thirteen. Bmw active hybrid three. It's a bmw. It's a three thirty five with an electric motor in the torque converter and i love the hybrid powertrain. Are there any hybrid performance cars. You're looking forward to at less than a thousand one hundred thousand dollars. No i'm looking forward to the aftermarket. Hybrid was that. Come on von leo. If more people try that that seems interesting and kind of exciting but I mean no. I'm sorry to say it's a it's a one word answer but but i mean no. I'm particularly impressed. I mean i'm pressed. But i'm not excited by you. Know we just put up the video of the accurate sex which is impressive. But i'm not excited by it by owning in. And i i don't i don't aspire to own it. We drove the sf ninety ferrari impressive. But i don't aspire to own that For me I'm not interested in performance hybrids. I like I liking it. And then i like engaging drivers cars and i think hybrids are great Especially extended range like the volt are great as appliances if you can't charge as much frequently But there's nothing about a hybrid powertrain that inspires me or makes me wanna spend my own money on one From sporting perspective. Because it will. We know it's gonna add weight. That's the problem you know. The cars are already getting too heavy. And then if you take something fun camaro or something and then add hybrid powertrain. You're adding even more way to which doesn't need miata like you're gonna ruin what makes it great or b. r. z. Right it adds weight. It doesn't need an ed power. It doesn't need You know right i don't. I don't think that that. The addition of that hybrid powertrain to go from a ferrari f eight to the sf. Ninety makes absolutely no difference in the real world. These cars are both insanely fast I know in the nfl. The hybrid powertrain is part of what makes the handling so magical. Well that's cool And it's and it's impressive. What it can do. But i don't i i don't want to own that i think has so many other flaws. That almost detract from how good it is to drive in in the performance that like the interior is so dull and an constraint like it feels small. There's not a lot of places to put things and it's very uninteresting to sit and look around your cabin in that right there. You're like well if being in the car is so much experience in addition to driving it. And you've just lost that. Yeah it it really reduces and i mean i know the first intersex was not the most interesting place to sit either but i think it moved this ball forward and we appreciate that more. But there's other options out there at that price point. Yeah brad has a twenty eleven range rover. Five point oh as hse. That just won't stop breaking. Should i keep fixing it and stay in the whole or replace it with four by pickup truck diesel. Well you're asking a financial financial question. This is not a car question. I mean there's literally nothing you're going to do with this rate and like your ranger is not going to stop breaking like if it's been breaking over and over like it ain't getting newer. The parts of the parts aren't Aren't going to be in any better condition You know you're talking about a ten year old vehicle that was designed with a ten year service life. You're at the end of the the intended service life. Like i've learned this press launches. What intended service. Life is Range rovers not have an intended service life beyond ten years. Do not have it intended service life beyond hundred thousand miles. Wow so if yours is older than that and works has more miles than that. And it works. You are the exception. You're not the rule The only vehicle that i know of that is designed with an intended service. Life over ten years is the land cruiser which is a twenty five year design. And that's why it's ninety thousand dollars toyota. Because the actual hardware is more robust. And the things that can break are simpler and durable in proven Old range rovers. I mean if you're dumping money into it now you're gonna keep dumping money into it forever. So i can't tell you to to replace it with an f to fifty because i don't know if you want to be driving around enough to fifty. I feel like the fact he's asking. It tells me that you don't love it anymore or as much as you need to keep throwing money at it like if you can get something especially a newer pickup truck this can have lots of new features ride. Nice be quiet They do a lot of things. Really well in twenty eleven. You might be just as happy with that as you would with the range rover and yeah you don't get to like pull up and be like range over but but range over years. It's broken all the time. I try to ask me how i know. Yeah yeah yeah yeah. Having a having saying you have a luxury vehicle but the reality is your luxury vehicles. Never quite right That's not where is it. Let's in the shop again. You don't wanna do that. Yeah yeah let's see swerving eight wants to know. Where do we get our plane t shirts. Actually i've been buying the warri. what's it for. It's like one of these like it's almost like lululemon but they haven't figured out that it's lululemon yet. You know what i mean nice it's like technical fabrics it's vu. And i've been. I bought like ten shirts from them. Recently that's plain t shirts and bought on amazon. And once i found a pack i liked. I just bought twenty of them. They're twenty black t. shirts there. You go Kevin says with the next generation c. Sixty three moving to four cylinders In your opinion will eight c. Sixty three's is beginning to hold their value The model is the ninety two. Bmw look to the ninety-two bmw m. Three and it's it's it's residual values I think there's a floor will they. Will they begin their value. I mean there is a floor right. I and they will not go below that floor. Yeah and so. That's so yes. I mean look as i think too right now a manual gearbox ninety two m three is more desirable than it was when it was new Yeah probably because it sounds great You know the styling has aged very well. Well when it was new. I think it was also kind of king of the ring when it was new because at the time the c. Sixty three had such a shift transmission and was just like the. The attitude of the car was different right and now but the sixty that came out like two or three years ago also terminally well and shift quickly those. That's the sweet spot for the c sixty three. You're not like the box. He won the the the the current gen. Yeah yeah yeah. Those are fantastic. Those are very good Sean says thirty five k. Would you prefer veloce n or a new eighty-six for fun experience. I mean here's the question. I assume this person is not asking. The that's an only car question veloce a weekend toy The real question is do. You need a back seat or not. That's really more i mean. Do you want to drive the front wheels at the rear wheels. And do you need a back seat. That's much more important than which is fun. Both of those cars are leaders in their class currently but a front drive experience and a rear-drive experience and a car with a big trunk and an an real rear seats versus a car. That doesn't have those things has a real trunk. But it doesn't have real receipts. We're talking about real world practical differences so in a vacuum where it's just my fat ass and nothing else. I'd rather have the eighty-six because the steering is is a little better And a a rear-drive experience is preferable to me. Yeah all other things being equal. If i could only buy one car that i had to actually live with and carry stuff and carry people and get in and out of fifty times a day. I'd probably rather have the hyundai because it would probably be easier to live with it more..

"Land in the world of custom seko's and you'd have a unique which is also cool. Watch people love when they have the only one of something and so that would actually be My recommendation is to have a custom piece mate. Frazier replied i. Hit him up. Jazirah is there a no. Fraser has not replied. Yeah all right. We'll come back if he comes back. we watch the twenty four hours of le mom dot minute. Nope not one minute of it Thoughts of the new hypercard class to me. They look like l. m. p. one cars so like i mean the hypercard class. It's not like they're it's not like it's like law. Ferrari in nineteen and racing. They their race cars so the fact that they're called the hyper car class. I mean in theory they have to build st versions of those. Is that the idea Ooh i don't know i should i. Should i mean toyota. One hyper class right one to finish right. They're not top tier p. One class right. Is that not the hypercard. Because i think the point of the hydrocare class Is to bring the cost down because the for the cost for the top teams which is what we all kind of started to pay attention to and see with the porsche. Nine one nine and Toy does like tesol borrow. It was so fucking expensive that that's why companies started bowing out of it. 'cause there's like hundreds of millions of dollars to develop these things that can really only in the hypercard class helping and who else i think for ours coming back to. It's coming back for it back to it. So it has more restriction. So it's going to even the cost out for everybody a bit more. So you're gonna have high performance vehicles that are just don't have to be spaceships and cost that much money. So maybe it'll be more competitive more populated. I don't particularly care about prototype racing. I mean i just don't and if they're let's see let's pull that up. Lamont hyper car is let me see..

"We drove a little bit on tarmac. We drove it a little bit of fire road and we went over a couple obstacles in the obstinate in the offered practice area. We did So you get you get a pretty pretty well rounded A view of the outback wilderness. And we did two videos bronco. We did a An on road and off road videos. Well so there's a lot of bronco content. yeah. I mean the compromises with wilderness. It gets a little. The gas mileage is reduced a little bit from the regular outback. Because you're you know. Higher higher in tires. Combination of the tires being higher up in the air But there's also some really good break. Like i know dive like you hit the brakes. Like there's definitely there's definitely you know. Safari might reminded me of my safari nine eleven You know the body moves on the suspension. A little more than a regular road tuned car. It's a nice little safari grocery getter type of thing. Yeah i forgot. It has a lower final drive ratio. Give the ascent. That's also why the gas mileage if that makes sense would you call it. The outback of outback's staubach at outback outback basically I it was good enough. That if i wanted that type of thing i probably would skip over the regular outback and go straight to straight to that you know. Yeah 'cause it's just it it. It gives up very little. It's not like you buy an outback for its precision handling what you get is more outback ability. More a sense stuff for As an approach car like ryan to a crazy hiking trail or mountain bike trail. It's gonna handle pretty much anything right and and actually the different modes like the ex mode like the mud ruts mode. It really did change the throttle response. And how what the gearbox did it it. it's a cvt but it kept it pretty much. I wanted it to be And it That i figured out. That was the only way to fully turnoff tracks. Control is to go to the mud ruts mode and when you do it's off. So that's that's good off off And the in that mode the all wheel drive system was biased towards the rear. So it does allow you to do a mild amount of holding a slide and won't let you really do it but but it's it's it can be fun. I'll lose surface. It would be fun if you were in Like sand or snow where you need to maintain that momentum and that will speed. that's what that's for. It would be helpful. Yeah and and you know that. The cvt It seems like they that someone at subaru knows the times that you don't want that drone like if you're on a highway going from sixty to ninety miles an hour it intuitively acts like a regular gearbox. That does a fake gearchange speaking. I think they know that you don't want it to go. You know Because that's just unpleasant. Yes so You know it it it. Does that pushiness a little bit. But it figures out kind of when the an annoying times would be for it to do that and doesn't do it. You know it's really quiet inside like they did a good job of hiding the sound and the envy from the engine in the But overall i mean. I know by the way johnny was talking. Shit about putting the doors back on the bronco on that show to zach and i did it in ten minutes with that literally time. It was exactly ten minutes and we did not have to put painter's tape on anything we were able to line it up and get them on I think it's probably not quite as easy as a wrangler to put the doors back on. They are pretty heavy. They are heavy and needed to us. Like like he said like guided version just to hold the back right But it was not that hard. I mean it really. Wasn't it took a couple of minutes. You know once you figure out like okay. I stand here and like if we did it again. It would probably take even less time. Yes and you know wants the door is hung you. Don't it's not like you have to have a bolt for it to stay like once. It was hung. You know you could walk away and you could just you just bolted up so taking doors off is fun. I mean it's little shady in terms of like. Wow i'm really exposed. Here aren't yeah. I took it out to these beauty shots On the street. And when i took a you know a right hand turn onto a big parkway at like forty miles an hour. I was very aware that there nothing seat belt. And my hands are gonna keep me in the in the car right but it was weird is a little unsettling they like an accessory right. That's like a tube frame kind of thing that goes to men if every accessory you could want for that think through for performance and if you're off roading and you weren't doing high-speed dusty stuff like yeah it'd be fun you can just see more of the landscaping more connected to it all that shit. Be fun speaking of seymour in the bronco. That front camera is very helpful. Yes when you've got a high dash and you've got a high nose climb mountain. It has a really nice high resolution front camera that pretty much just stays on. Can you can make it go away but when you're in that off-road mode forget what mode we were in mud ruts maybe it just stays on and it really helps you see what's happening under the noses very high resolution nice camera. Yeah very good. And the big screen to. It's like eleven point six or so Outer banks good. If i was going to get one of those i'd get the big get. The big screen option is. But you probably want that. Yeah that's a nice truck. It's worth the money. They're charging for it. I think yeah. I put the top off myself in about two minutes. Very easy yeah. It's really cool. Yeah they do a good job. So that's that we videos coming of those next couple of weeks i think. Probably what day is it. It's wednesday so not next week. The week after is going to be bronco week Next week we've got the do coty monster which is actually my favorite motorcycle i've ever ridden. It's a cool video. And i've got the i. Yeah yeah I watched roadrunner. They anthony bourdain documentary and i. It was really interesting. I think if anyone is a fan of bourdain they should see it If you aren't a fan of ordain you might you might not get much out of it. but you know it was What was really interesting is like for people that are into him you know especially when he died He almost got like you know defied you know what i mean And so much of that is like Because he had this way with words that was effectively translated into television. And so what is very interesting about The documentary to me was how human it made him again. You know it was. It was like an and he even he said it himself in the beginning of the movie that he idolized people. Like william s burroughs and hunter thompson and ernest..

"Disconnecting sway bar and only has five goats instead of six or seven right despite that zero problem with the trail. Yeah in fucking just right up. The trail picked the hard lines. You know very little work required by the driver. Yeah and it didn't have hill descent control which i don't use that much anyway but with the low range might as well be hill descent control. Yeah we we put in low first gear. And i mean i think i took my foot on a pretty steep slope and it was going to miles an hour miles an hour. Yeah we reached my personal limit or highest score of thirty degrees hill. A little to tilt. Yeah we had a problem or see-saw at one point. We had a rear wheel. That was at least three feet in the air you know and it can. It'll lean over pretty far and make some who come out a little bit. It'll it'll get up that hill. Yeah it. Was you know it performed so well that it would be tough for me to to justify to any non. Very hard core off. Roader that they need more. I mean i can't. I can't imagine what more i would personally need than to be able to get up a trail like that with ease. Yeah like we said. The only thing we noticed in the fire road to get there was that the regular shocks are a little bouncy like the suspension is tuned for the street. It feels like on. The ride was really good on the fire road. The ride was awful. Really i mean i was. I was shocked at how bad it was the second i hit fire road now. We didn't air down stock air pressures And it got a little better. When i switched from two wheel drive to four wheel drive because i think i was. You got a little less. Hop from the live axle But still the ride was atrocious. Owner just kind of pogo ing around your cabinet. In the comparison we had is because we had outback wilderness. There that road like dreams rides great by itself objectively them when we went from one to the other like. Oh this is what a softer strong software damp car can do. Yeah i mean that was built by a company that builds rally cars You know and so we thought that unibody body on frame but i'll sure suspension was definitely better put The we talked with johnny about taking the outback wilderness. Up off the trail that are trail as you'll see in our bronco video it that shale evolves and changes and yesterday it was rocky and really rutted and there was no way. i mean. We could've tried but we would have broken it for one percent. We would have broken it. Yeah something a phone call. I wouldn't have had to made. Yeah johnny the. I think the last time we did that trail it was The more more dirt covering rocks which also made those little kasim smoother because they were filled in and this time much more jagged which actually aids interaction a lot. So i think those tires the all seasons they perform well there. Yeah but like the land cruiser might not have gotten stuck if we went up when it was sandy yeah But the drops. I mean we would have scraped a lot of stuff. It didn't have the ground clearance. Yeah or the or the torque really because of the cvt yeah Having said that it actually worked out well because the difference between it and the bronco on the fire road was real like oh we should film this on the fire road because you can actually drive at like a rally car a little bit you can flick it and oversteer it into a into a loose surface corner which you'll see in the video And with that extra ground clearance and suspension travel. You know you can hit stuff. Pretty hard on a fire road you hit jumps and i jumped it a little bit You know and you can Go straight over. Some routes that in a in a traditional rally car you would avoid because it would be not tall enough yeah That's a nice car. It is really nice. A really nice car under forty thousand dollars to start the thirty s like thirty eight grand start which is eighteen hundred more than the regular outback mill. You get the clearance. You get the you can get the Skip plates option It's basically really for the clearance and then like the bronze tow hooks and those kinds of things. Yeah the fabric sides nice. Yes got the water It's not water resistant. but it's like it's easy e-especially. Easy to clean the called star. Tech's something like that. Yeah they got they always gonna come up with these new named rick. Well they starts. Because i think the subaru thing that makes their media system is link which is slow and that needs an update dustless darling. It's it's not good it's fine put man. Does it react slow. Like a couple seconds hit the button then hit the button then hit the button and it and it and it's not actually as simple as it looks get getting through the menu like it took take me a while to figure out where to find stuff Despite its like all their icons are so big that they blur together so it actually makes it less intuitive navigate. Yeah it and it just it. There's certain like there's the row of buttons on the bottom. That's like one is the home button. And then another one is for like car functions and like it's not immediately obvious which button you should press for certain stuff i mean. Obviously if if you use the car lot you'd figure it out but like going back and forth between like my phone car and the radio like was not as intuitive as i wanted I kept having to manually do it for some reason. Like if i had directions come up on carplay. I'd have to like click back to radio. That was kind of annoying I the more. I use the system. The less i liked it honestly but everything else about the car. Lot of car for the money in rear seat trunk rooms great. It's basically as tall as my machi. Subaru considers or other roof to roof. Okay yeah it's pretty much the same fight as the machi. Wow it did have a lot of headroom. Yeah it's got a lot of room. It was nice. I mean in general and we still got it for another few days So if you've got follow up questions that we didn't answer. We drove a little bit on tarmac. We drove it a little bit of fire road and we went over a couple obstacles in the obstinate in the offered practice area. We did So you get you get a pretty.

"So they know we sent you all right folks. It is a crucial. Today's zaken eye catching up on all the interesting things we've driven. We had a week with the bronco. We got the subaru outback wilderness. I have had a very very interesting experience Watching the anthony bourdain film and and And its struggles and my the stuff. I've been talking about on this show along with it. It's sort of a nice little mesh thing that's happening together. And we talk about the state of the auto market. That's just completely out of control. Me and zach on this podcast. Everybody what the fucks going on What the fuck is going on. Y'all doing Welcome to the show Zach and. I had a nice beautiful morning filming new mikan. gts which. I can't talk about until august. The thirty first. Sorry that's because other people to try it first for fares these Very green but yesterday we drove the bronco off road and we drove the subaru outback wilderness. Offroad ish yeah that's all that counts. That's offroad on dirt runs very a few obstacles so yes we did. We drove the outback. Wilderness off road. We drove the bronco off road I also watched the anthony bourdain documentary and the val kilmer documentary. I'm you know there was about commercial. Yeah and the woodstock ninety nine documentary. I've been watching all of those I went opened on a new building for west side Anzac and i watched a guy this morning Discover that his catalytic converter had been stolen in real time. Half it was. That was a sad sight story. I short short. It's funny and sad. We came down off of the the hill this morning because we go film really early. Obviously that's how you do it and we came down and get breakfast. And we're sitting at an outdoor table at this little cafe in one of these Towns that sort of at the bottom of the hill and I see this guy across the street. Get into his. I don't see because who would. Who would see a guy just walking across street getting into a black honda. Crv it's not the kind of thing that would catch your eye. You're gonna hurt the aware. Matt we heard it. I heard it wo- someone's got like a hot tuner car around here and you said you're like crv. And i looked around looking for a modified. Something i couldn't see it and you kept saying it's the crv across like on the street and so then the guy turns it off and he gets out and he kinda like looks around the back of the car like to see if his tailpipe is still there. I i guess. Yeah i right. And it's it is and so he gets back in the car and starts it again like oh shit. I think he's about to realize someone stole his cat. Then he fucking search shit lays down on the ground looks under gets up and just goes like just just the fucking hand on the head. And just like trudges back into his apartment and And as soon as he was gone like a few minutes later i was like i wanna see inside win over and i laid down on this car to and yeah his fucking cat got saws all doubt. Yep i always forget that. That's a thing that happens but it happens like a lot of it started happening With increasing frequency. I think last year early last year there were more and more reports of it and then i guess it's still going and it's still hot. Trend sawed the fuck off. Yeah i mean it's there was just a section like two feet right from the middle of the guys. Exhaust the benefit of a wagon over crossover is that it's harder to get under there. Do that jack. Right like i would say like. That's the adds an argument for air suspension. If you slam your shit they're probably not gonna bother crawling under there to steal your cat For that dude. Because that's that's an expensive thing. Yeah cats are like. I've denied underdog. They're expensive and i had to replace the cats on the la- the million mile lexus thousand nine hundred dollars because it was a dual you know it's the whole assembly both sides and i think it was a. Interestingly enough the ls four hundred was old enough because it was a ninety six Where they made two different versions of the car they made up forty nine state and then a california version and even though the car was built as a not a california version replacing the cats in california you can only get the california cats so it was each side. Had an extra cat on it. That's why that's total. That's why it was so yeah. It was four cats. total was nine hundred dollars. Cars throwing check engine light. Someone's like could be the cats. And i was like i fucking hope doesn't move the you know. They're built into the manifold in my car. Right the whole thing right. Yeah so i mean it was definitely. It's a sad thing to see that. That's that's a sad thing to see when someone discovers that their cat has been still out and it was so loud. Forget open headers srb and it was like you know it. It wasn't like the it wasn't a dangerous neighborhood. It's like a. It's like a more rural neighbourhood like there's like horse farms up there and like agriculture workers and stuff like that it's not like like the urban like skid running or city at all right. Thank you get off the freeway. There's some apartment complexes which probably support the local businesses and then just horse farm agriculture. Yeah that's it. Yeah so. I mean it's it's man it was it's like i don't want to say like like you. Just not the thing that kind of thing you think about you know you park your car outside your fucking house. And then there's like someone in the middle of the night is sawed part of your car off plus telling you my girlfriend. Stepdad was On a business trip with a rental car last year parked at a hotel by the airport and he walked outside cars on jackson on cinderblocks. And they take. The cat calls hurts. He's like i don't know about this Your car is here. I'm taking a cab and the keys are at the front desk much by you. See that story of circling twitter like over the weekend. About the avis customer. Who repoed is car. In the middle of a rental holy shit that's about eating mistaken like they meant to repo a different car and some numbers got mixed up and they got this one. I mean maybe i really. I read the whole thread. It's fascinating the he did. Good detective work during it out. But what's weird is. If they were trying to repeal a different car you'd think once they realized what had happened manager rep would call. I'm so very sorry because that's customer service works but they just like ghost ghost him window and phone numbers that go to dead end lines and then they build him for the days that he hadn't returned the car even though he knew that it was back on their lot. Yeah i mean it was really weird. i re tweeted it. I don't know if i think you did. Twitter feeds to read it. It's sixteen pages and it's really strange. A couple of the blogs and stuff like i think gillette mix it up and some other some other place i saw it like. I saw it on some mainstream on apple news. Good by the way i look. I have apple. I have an iphone. So i have apple news right and i i have in my you know in my apple iphone web browser other news and media outlets that i like to go specifically but i have a somewhat curated. You know feed in my apple news reader right. it's just kuntar's tosh news. I but i'm so annoyed. The shit that i see on the the benefit of the doubt that elon. Musk and tesla. Get on the main stream apple news sites whether it's newsweek or business insider and even if it's even if it's shit like forbes where it's like bullshit blogger. Contributors that have no oversight can just hit publish for fifteen bucks oppose like it makes it into that feet. And that's that's where a lot of mainstream people are getting You know not. Everyone is going to find. Great jason torchinsky piece or a great neater meyer or alex roy piece that has actual you know. God forbid a missy. Cummings article or something like that which she was cited in a recent In a recent piece that was accurately incredibly critical. Because i saw in the chat. Someone's like us mad about the. But that's kind of what i was getting at because the body is so obviously bullshit right and for a whole bunch of reasons. There's a lot of there was a lot of great pieces explaining why it was such bullshit right but the mainstream media uncritically own developing It'll be out next year. And they even went so far as to say it'll be.

Police say Barry had been drinking, allegedly assaulted three flight attendants groped to female and punched a male attendant. You know what? Why do they have to mention he was drinking? Like, what does that have to do with it? I've been drinking on a plane. I didn't do that. Why? Why should drinking. Take the hit right. If you're smoking weed. They wouldn't say that. If he was on Coke. They wouldn't say he's all coked up. But for some reason Alcohol always takes the shot. Don't you think? That's the reason why he was acting the way he but But But if he was on Coke, they wouldn't say he was all coked up if they knew that to be true, Yes, they were, but they don't or or you know, he would. They wouldn't say. Well, you know, he was spotted in his, uh, in his Subaru taking large bomb loads before the flight. You never hear that. I never heard. It's always alcohol. It takes the hit alcohol limit on the yes and cigarettes. You know, it's cigarette smokers. The last people everyone can make fun of night cigarette smokers.

"Today on rambling about cars. The sun is literally rising on the next gen. Wrx from subaru. there's a faster porsche cayenne. There's a crazy twenty-seven liter v twelve crown. Victoria that we're going to talk about now. The convict isn't coming back but one person is trying to make it bigger and better than ever and then we are long long overdue for a thorough rant about flying cars. So buckle up you jam and jetsons. It's podcast time. I'm christopher smith chris bruce. Are you ready to have this conversation. I'm very ready. I've been anxious for the flying car conversation for a while. And we've got some interesting news this week. So let's get right and how about that. Yeah let's jump right into it to start here with the wrx if you'd like. Yeah i'll throw. I've got the photo right here right there. So yeah just today as we're recording which is actually june twenty-ninth. We're recording one day earlier than we usually go but subaru dropped a teaser of the next generation. Wrx kinda makes a wish. Evil is still around. Doesn't it bruce. I mean we're looking at teaser now. Here on youtube so this is the right version. That our buddy jeff peres. He liked it up. I'll put the dark version up in a second just so people can see but even this in version for people who aren't watching on video you're not missing much. there's not much to see here trump. Caesar what we are seeing. And i wrote. I actually wrote up the story for us. You could convince someone. This is an extensive refresh of the wrx rather than being a new wrx pretty easily. I would say yeah. Just with this teaser. Being able to see just just the top of the car. I mean it kind of looks a lot like the current. Wrx doesn't it. It's not it's it's not meaningfully different in any obvious way from wealthy here. Of course. I mean the teaser. We're not seeing the entire car. We're only just just just the top half really from the beltline up. We're not seeing the grill. We're not seeing of the doors when i've seen the wheels but this is this is this is telling because usually once the teaser campaign starts for new vehicle. It's a matter of weeks usually at most weeks at most unless unless you're toyota in which case the super for like a year and a half or your teasing tundra for along but it's still somebody leaks and then they just give right but no i mean this means. We're probably going to see the next generation. All new subaru. Wrx in a matter of weeks by the end of summer summer. I would say by september at the latest. I would and of course. And i mean we've seen spy photos and actually we haven't seen a lot of spy photos we've seen some bull we've seen up until up until now and the rumor mill has been telling us that it's going to have the two hundred sixty horsepower. Engine what is it that bruce. The you're the subaru guy. That is the f. a. Twenty four twenty four two point four liter turbo so the f. series of engines came out with the assent. It was i in that so subaru for literally decades for wow. It might be close to thirty years. Had their e. series of engines people probably know the ej and things like that and with the assent. They finally came out with a new engine. Family called the f. e. s. You know make sense so The faa twenty four so two point four liter turbocharged in the ascent the legacy the outback. It makes two hundred sixty horsepower. The scuttle butt is in the wrx probably make a little bit more. I wouldn't be three hundred. Wouldn't shock me like that. Seems totally reasonable. And then the the big rumor is is that the sti is going to get a high output version. That's gonna push it to four hundred now to four hundred horsepower. From two point four liters. That's a that's high strung. I'll be curious to see if that rumor proves to be true. But that's what we're hearing right now. At least it is. It is a lot and it would be fantastic. It would be quite a. It would be a lot of power in some in the size of wrx for a youtube watchers. We are looking at one of the cy shots. We have right now and you can see even from the spy. Shot a whole hell of a lot like the current. Wrx do really does. We're not going to get a hatchback again. we're not gonna get you know. Boxy kind of fist like styling that we got from the early ones. It just looks like a wrx. The current wrx is. And you know. Pay props to subaru for keeping it going for. I mean for for decades. There was the wrx versus yvo having the mitsubishi israeli fighter. They had a good battle going. I think they kept each other fairly honest and it kept each other on their game. And i know bruce with with the yvo gone. I mean at least at least there's a new generation for the. Wrx do you do you think. Do you think subaru's may be losing their way a little bit with the wrx. They're not being quite as aggressive. Maybe on the style. I mean it sounds like it could be pretty aggressive on the power if if the wrx does step up to three hundred. I mean that's i mean that's sti power right. I mean you're certainly expecting to sixty because that's what every other applications engine makes but kind of the but is a little bit more three hundred thousand shocking but yeah it's you know ever since that kind of so. It's worth noting. That subaru hasn't competed in the world rally championship for quite a few years. Now i think it's oh six. Oh seven something like that. They pulled out and so with not really having a reason to create a competition version also not having the yvo to compete with also ford kind of giving up on the focus. Rs and things like that. They don't really have that much reason to try as hard as they used to. And you know. I'm a subaru owner. I like subaru's but that's the wrx is kind of a rough spot at the moment. And yeah it it. It feels like you know if we had an ego out there if we had a focus. Rs out there. If you know by some wish launcher came back and made an integral rally delta. You know something like that like they would have a reason to really like make this a super hardcore performance car and none of those vehicles exists so they can kinda. They don't have to try that art. I mean that's a good point. Who is subaru's competition right now with the wrx. I mean you can still get hot. Focus in other parts of the world that just not here in the united states right so i i mean we. I guess we have to think a little bit more globally. But yeah end may like there's not a good straight up competitor. Unless i'm missing one. We probably are. We probably are but well the you know the gr yeras. I mean not available in the united states. But yeah you're right. I mean it's a lot smaller. But i mean i would see somebody going for the wrx maybe choosing that as well sure if there's gr corolla in the us that's exactly. There's the ongoing rumor that toyota couldn't get us the gre irs. That they're gonna give us a gr corolla and if that's true then yeah that's going to be a competitor but the issue there then you have to consider that. Toyota owns twenty five percent of subaru. And do they want to compete against themselves. Like i don't know what that relationship is like that. Do they wanna have two vehicles that. Are you know take stealing sales from each other. So yeah well. The near future here for subaru is going to be very interesting. I love rally. I've always been a fan. I remember going to my first stage rally in the united states here back in two thousand or two thousand one. It was back just before you could actually get a wrx or ibo in the states so going out and doing some of these three two and it was the first year that wrx. Oh two was the first year for the wrecks in the in the state so going out to the stage rallying seeing some of these cars that had been imported. I was just an avid. And i still i'll. I'll still have.

How The New Toyota 86 Compares To The Old One

"So last week. We kind of we knew this announcement from toyota and subaru was coming. We didn't know what it was and we could have spent a segment talking about. What could it be. We you know we kind of we knew. In all likelihood it was going to be the new eighty six but we didn't know for sure because there was all sorts of other stuff that it could be and so we you know we through abouts about cars and crossovers and stuff like that and it turns out it was the new eighty six and to be fair For all the listeners who tuned in last week by the way you really tuned in last week we had some good numbers last week. So we appreciate you coming along with us. We kinda didn't think i was gonna be the eighty six. If we were honest. I mean there was there was a lot of. There's a lot of evidence is okay. Yeah it's probably the eighty six. But i mean there's a lot of doubt so it in. They're like why. Why subaru is there with toyota. Toyota's launching their version of the subaru b. r. z. And that's actually kind of what happened. Subaru was there with toyota. Until you oughta launched its. Gr eighty six weird. Because to wasn't there when subaru launched the which was what always kind of gave us pause that you know maybe sums up maybe not but anyway here it is As you can tell it looks a whole lot like the new biard z. That's on the way we don't yet know win. The new eighty six is coming to the. Us we don't have like pricing data and stuff like that but otherwise it they're basically the same vehicle you can tell there's a slightly different front facial the lightly different other guerrillas more here. I've got a good side by side image because of all things toyota just released this like. This isn't us making it. They just released side by side. Images of both concede the front. The toyota has the more squarish rectangular from asia. Whereas it's more of a trapezoid on the subaru the subarus Intakes the coroner's lot. More angular there a little bit more curvy on the subaru. like you can see their differences. But they're not big differences. It's almost like a two different body kits vehicles.

What Is Tail Risk?

"Last week. The proven i got stuck in a rare snow and ice storm that hit texas where millions were without power and unable to heat their homes. We spent saturday night in el paso. Texas we saw there was going to be a winter storm between el paso and san antonio where we were heading where we were dropping off. My son and daughter in law's subaru that they had repaired back in tucson where we spend the winters we debated whether we should stay in el paso or not maybe way today but i thought i've driven in the snow a lot. It's a subaru. It has new tires. We should be just fine and indeed the car at least for the first day perform quite well. It was an absolute mess. There were so many wrecks at one point. There was a chinese woman in the middle of the highway waving us down. We thought it was another wreck. Turns turns out. She and her husband had got stranded on the other side of the expressway and needed a ride back to the next town where they had a hotel. It took us eight hours of driving. And we realized we wouldn't be able to reach san antonio. I rather son book too so hotel in oso texas because our cell phones weren't working right. The next morning the car was dead we put in a battery and then we started driving again. We didn't make it far. We got stuck at a rest. Stop our cell. Phones didn't work. It was fifteen degrees. I found found somebody that call the police for us rescue us but before the police arrived the car started against so we thought well at least try to get to the next exit and maybe we could get a hotel. The car stalled again. We posted about a half a mile off the highway and ended up stranded on the side of the road in sonora texas. It's not a very big town. There's no taxis there's no uber. We presume the problem was the alternator was out. We got a hold of my son who wanted to come and install a new one so we had to get back about thirty eight miles to sona texas where we had a hotel room. I least had the presence of mind to book another nights room at the hotel just in case something came up. We couldn't get back. I called the police. They said they couldn't help. They didn't have the resources that operator said call tow truck. Why did they weren't going to pick us up. They only tow cars. Aaa doesn't do it. Either they only arrange for toes reaced needed a ride back to her hotel. Was i call the auto parts store where i had paid a couple of guys to put the battery in. They didn't want to come pick us up. I had brett check. If we had any plus members in the area the closest one was in kerrville too. Far away i called our web developers in houston. Do they know anybody. In sonora turn their neighbor had family that live there but he was eighty and they couldn't get a hold of him on the phone. Finally brat got in touch with a local leader from the church of jesus christ of latter day saints that live an hour and a half away and it turns out he knew a couple in zona who said they were willing to come and get us complete strangers. They both worked for the school district. The husband and wife and they came. We were on the side of the road about two hours and it was cold the next day. His father in law came. They picked us up. And we made it san antonio barely because we had the head any gasoline because they're filling stations were closed or out of gas because of power. It was extremely rare event. The coldest that has been in texas since nineteen eighty nine. If we look at the weather in san antonio in a typical year it varies between forty. Three degrees in ninety six degrees. it rarely falls below. Freezing plotted graph. Temperatures in texas. Most of the observations would be in the middle around seventy degrees. This is a bell curve. A normal distribution fifteen degrees fahrenheit is where we were to the far left of this distribution and that far left is the tail tail events are extreme outcomes or very rare observations. Because they're in the tail on the ends of the distribution there called talibans tail. Risk is the personal harm. That's these extreme events can cause. How does it impact us. In the worst case we could be ruined. We could die or we could go bankrupt. We could run out of money. This weather event was hey tail event. It was an extreme of it. It was rare now. Pearl and i were in a. I wouldn't call it a dangerous situation. Certainly very uncomfortable. I have not been that stranded in many years. It took a while to find help. I've you were kind of at wit's end as investors we can control the amount of tail risk that we take we can protect against by buying insurance. We can self insure in have enough buffer to survive extreme risk or we can ensure others and sell tail risk protection before we continue. Let me pause and share some words from a new sponsor to the show babble. When the as. I'm eagles as you know.

A Global Shortage In Computer Chips Hits Auto Industry

The chips are down for the auto industry, and the computer chip shortage is slowing their assembly lines. It's manufacturers aren't able to get these ships and literally does stop the production. Tom Doll is CEO of Subaru America. You can't produce these vehicles. And then insert the chip later. The chip has to be inserted into the device before it gets put into the vehicles. GM is idling production of some small and crossover SUVs and Ford, Toyota, Nissan, Volkswagen and others have also cut production because of the shortage, a shortage caused in part by a jump in demand for phones.

Ford's New Rocket League Sponsorship is Perfect

"Besides the racing games which are a natural fit for car brands. There's one sport that made such a natural Fit For A brand sponsorship. I can't believe it took so long. It took it League yesterday Ford announced they're putting the Ford F-150 into the game. It's the first time a consumer-facing vehicle has been added to the game. So consumer-facing a key part of that. What does that mean rocket league has brought in a ton of different cars from media Universe has many of which are tied to actual Brands. You know, the Batmobile doesn't have a brand behind in the Dodge Charger is in game. So is Nissan's are thirty-four and so it's a Jeep, but the first two of those cars were tied to Fast and Furious DLC pack and they're based on old school cars for the charger it wage. 1968 and 1970 and the Nissan was based on the car from 1999 used by Brian O'Connor. The jeep was from Jurassic Park. So it's not like you can just buy these cars at a lot down. There was one other car that wasn't tied to a media franchise in rocket League's history. And that car is the McLaren starting at two hundred grand though. The McLaren is not a consumer car because it's a Subaru targeted at high-end customers. I'd wager to say maybe five people who play rocket League can afford a McLaren. Maybe that's generous Ford's F-150 is clearly different. The Ford F-series is the best selling Truck Series in North America nearly a million truck sold in 2019 when it comes to marketing you Market a Ford F series truck a lot differently than a new market a McLaren which is why it's fair to say. This is the first consumer-facing car that's existed in rocket League. What I think is really cool about the sponsorship. It says made up of a bunch of different parts first off the car inches the game great start it'll be available for purchase from February 22nd to the 28th. Then forward will also be a sponge for the upcoming rlcs winter major at the end of February that we taking over the in-game Billboards, which I still believe are a massive white space for sponsors Ford is also releasing a new ad around this partnership with the coolest part of that ad is that will be voiced by Bryan Cranston, you know the star of Breaking Bad also the dad from Malcolm in the Middle. Shout out to help crested also did for Superbowl at this year just to give you an idea about how much Ford is investing in the sponsorship and there's a final piece of a too which is also really cool Ford is hosting a freestyle competition people unfamiliar with rocket League freestyling is when you send your car turning like crazy to overcomplicate a goal in search of a sick clip, it's really popular on YouTube. It's doing tricks like flip resets double Taps Turtles and any other way to make a gold look really cool for it'll be inviting 8 freestyle rap. Our competition and the winner will receive an actual Ford F-150. Those are the kinds of small details that really make a brand sponsorship in Esports stand out to me. It shows an underscore the audience and the content that works with this audience as well. I really think this is the car sponsorship the rocket league has been raped for four years with the increased Esports investment from Brands like Toyota Honda BMW Mercedes and plenty more. I really can't believe it took this long, but good on Ford for finally making it

Chip Shortage Hits GM, Leads to Production Cuts

"Get back to Tom Doll. He's president CEO over its Subaru of America still with us on the phone from Subaru headquarters in Camden, New Jersey. So, Tom, let me ask you. I'm sure you've been asked about it many times. And I was I did watch earlier when you were joining our Bloomberg TV colleagues this GM story today, saying that they have some chip shortages and then it was hurting it. You guys you've been doing okay? So far we have been yes, it is going to affect us at some point along the way, but we know that through the first quarter of the year March, it's not going to impact us all that much. Now we're still waiting to get Information from our suppliers about how it might affect us as we get out into April and may in particular But we're hopeful that the impact isn't going to be that much. What's going on. It's a good question. You would think that there'd be enough supply, given the fact that he's like trying devices inside G devices that people are saying is the cause of the shortage of people who are purchasing these things well before the pandemic started. And then coming out of the production was actually for us was very strong and we could get really all the chips we wanted through the period until probably early part of December, and that's when we first started to hear about this potential for a chip shortage. So I know they're working with our suppliers all over the world to try to figure out Where we can source additional chips and I'll be honest with you. I mean, it seems to us anyway, The situation seems to be getting better A supposed to worse, but I can't speak for all of the other manufacturers. I can only kind of speak from us, right? Right. I do have one question though. I'm curious. Are you concerned or could it lead to higher prices down the road, Potentially Specially. There are shortages. I mean, it could be depending upon what the chip manufacturers do with their pricing. We all have pricing contracts with the chip suppliers. But in a situation like we're in, and if you've gotto somehow find another source for your chip supply, there could be increases and chip prices, But we're not at this point forecasting any Significant increase in in prices as a result of the chip shortage well, and it's interesting to you know, we've been talking a lot about kind of the chip industry. I feel like Tom over the last year. I mean, I look at my car. It's so much a piece of technology in the amount of, you know, technology that's in it running in. And as you move towards, you know, evey is it becomes I feel like even more So, um Do we need to as a world as a country kind of look at our chip supply chains more closely, and maybe even as governments being much more active in terms of those businesses and making sure that everybody and anybody who needs them has access to them. They're they're clearly a vital aspect of our vehicle production. There's no question about it because they're in so many different components there in our head units there in our engine control modules. We're in a lot of the advanced safety equipment that we provide. So I do believe that it is something that governments need to look into that. Make sure that there's a secure supply of these chips of that manufacturers such as ourselves, don't get caught in a situation where you can't supply an adequate number of these chips that would meet supply on meet demand, because You know if it's manufacturers aren't able to get these ships and literally does stop the production because you can't produce these vehicles and then insert the chip later, the chip has to be inserted into the device before it gets put into the vehicle. So it really is something that you know, can really throw a wrench into the whole production system. So where it is something I think it needs to be examined and looked into.

The volume is lighter than usual here for a Tuesday afternoon drive here, the South bound expressway. Really tells the story. It's wide open out of the tunnel all the way down into East, Milton and Quincy. Now North bound, you'll notice exit 14 for Morrissey Boulevard is shut down. That's due to some flooding here. It's got Morrissey Boulevard completely shut in both directions here and a similar situation with coastal flooding and Plymouth, the section of Route three A's shut down between Cliff Street and Clifford Road. If you know the area, you know that's under a mile watch for those closures, most likely through the afternoon.

Dealing With Sensory Processing Issues with Laura Benanti

"How is managing a with your daughter. You know it's really interesting so right. Before we went into quarantine she actually Was diagnosed with sensory processing issues. So that was crazy. Ms it was like we were supposed to start occupational therapy a few times a week and instead they were like you're the teacher and the Let's go so that was a challenge but we left new york city and went and stayed with my parents new jersey in the house. I grew up in a full nine months. But my dad my stepfather. But i call that cheese psychotherapists in a holistic health counselor so that was kinda outweighs al. Yeah and then my mom's voice teacher in it's just like my daughter's obsessed with them so weirdly. She had this beautiful lake villa. Like italian experience. Living with your grandparents such. It's not in our american culture and the way it is so many other cultures and so she got to have this beautiful experience with them. And i got to work because my parents took on like four hour shifts each day like my mom four hours. My dad each four hours husband wear which was. Yeah it really was. It really was audible and my daughter's thrived in a way that i am just so grateful for and we ended up actually moving out of new york city because she seems to be doing so much better with more room and more space with being able to go outside. It's interesting because occupational therapists said to us Has happened if you think of her brain as a bank is. She wakes up with one hundred dollars in the bank. A costs for ninety nine dollars to take the subway will mom. She's got a dollar left the rest of the day and that was such a perfect way to put. It made it so manageable for me to understand like she's just not in a place where that's healthy environment for people who are listening on. What a different things. That you've learned That you feel other than that. Very great big piece of advice as a great way to think about it. What are the things that you've learned work well for her. So there's a book called beyond behaviors because Sensory parents really for me. Based i'll say it's challenging for me to understand the difference between behavioral moment and a sensory She's in a sensory overload or behavior might might not great but she literally cannot help. It is not a thing where meeting on account to three. And then you're gonna stop. It's it's not something that i kept logical. It's not a it's not logical. That's the perfect word So for me distilling. That has been really helpful in. That book was helpful for me with that. Also just sensory play so lake Shaving cream in the bath. Tub kinetic sand touching different textures. We play a game where i've put her on the bed Ocean and i like swish her fourth inside langat and it gives her sort of cozy dark movements and she really loves that. We noticed that mccarthy fight or flight would be a little bit off. She'll be tantrum ing because she wouldn't go through the flight. Art shoot only. Get to fight so we learned circuit being like okay. Let's play hide and seek. When she started to tantrum. It would break her out for us. We discover that refined sugar is really challenging for her. We remove that from her diet and and that has been like incredibly hopeful. Gino subaru lates in the morning is not great for her zoom. Can't handle it So really just understanding what works for your own particular child then needing them where they're at
