87: Life is a Highway

  • Motor City here we come! This episode features our NYC to Detroit road trip adventure, courtesy of the fine folks over at GM Diversity. Cruising in our brand new Chevy Sonic, we clocked in over 600 miles on a 10-hour drive (with two stops at McDonald’s). In Detroit we hit up the biggest car show around, the North American International Auto Show and got a taste for a revitalized city, thanks in part to GM reclaiming its spot as the world’s #1 automaker.
  • While at the Auto Show we got a tour from GM’s Associate Director of Competitor Intelligence (aka Chief Spy), Adam Bernard. Adam broke down the who’s who and the what’s what at the show for us and also told us about how GM is reaching out to its gay employees and the greater LGBT community at large. We also spoke to deputy editor at Automobile Magazine Joe DeMatio about the hot cars for 2012 and beyond.
  • Trending this week: Wearing headphones might kill you, people! Please, for the love of life, keep your head up while walking down the street. Also, America is becoming a nation of alcoholics. Are we drinking away all our problems? And finally, are you an up-and-coming weatherman in South Africa? You may want to listen carefully, otherwise an incorrect forecast could land you in the slammer.
