Dan Prosser (TheIntercooler)
Dan Prosser is an automotive journalist based in the UK. He's written for the best mags (EVO, Top Gear) but has just launched a new digital magazine app called The Intercooler that he co-founded with Andrew Frankel. It's a car magazine that brings the best writers together to write great stories, without being tethered by advertisers. Seems like a clever idea. Get a free taste by following @theintercooler on IG, or head to the site to download the app. https://www.theintercooler.co.uk/ We have a great chat about his unorthodox start in the business, eraly press cars, the silly power of a business card, what's good (and bad) about cars today, driving a Corvette to Le Mans at age 21, and his Alpina A110 daily driver.

Brad Brownell (Radwood, Flatsixes.com, Jalopnik, and more!)
Brad Brownell is one of the busiest people in the automotive circle. He's a co-founder of Radwood and writes for more publications than we can count. Instead of flying to press events, he drives a yellow Porsche 912E, sometimes for thousands of miles at a time. We call him a glutton for punishment but he couldn't be happier.
