TTAC Daily Podcast: Yesterday's Podcast Today
When Frank and I heard that Mike Spinelli was disengaging from daily Jalopnik, we agreed: blogging ain't for sissies. To have a hope in Hell of attracting a regular audience, a blog must constantly and consistently feed the gaping maw that is the internet. As a former CNNer and borderline workaholic, I've got no problem facing an empty literary quiver every morning. I just bloody well get on with it. Frank's military discipline and undiagnosed personality disorders also qualify him for the task. But I understand that what we do requires a rare level of craft and commitment. If you think about it– and I have– every week, TTAC produces the equivalent amount of editorial as a monthly car magazine. And we're doing it for a fraction of the cost– and getting a fraction of the revenue, but that's a whole 'nother story. Anyway, all this is an excuse for why I didn't post this podcast yesterday; I simply ran out of time. Well, that and I had to drop my step-daughter off with her Dad in Boston and my brother-in-law wanted to see what The Ocean State has to offer in the way of nightlife (let's just say parking isn't a problem on Thursdays). Normally, I'd let the podcast slide and move on to the next one, but Justin had some real insights worth presenting. I think.
