I liked this when it started, then they changed the hosts and it became annoying. James McKean is awful.
The podcast was ruined when they took it out of the studio. I understand they want to show off the amazing vehicles of the guests but make it clear in advance you're done with the audio podcast and switching to a YouTube series.
Not really digging the new format where the host is driving around LA with the guest. Sound quality and content suffer.
The new format is not good
Having interviews in cars is terrible to listen to. All you hear is car noise and echoey conversation, of which there is not much of because they’re trying to focus on driving!
Bring back Kyle and James
The new format and lack of the previous hosts has ruined Car Stories. The banter and relationship between the hosts made the show so much better than the riding in cars chatting with the new guy.
Ed was a fan

Hate the new format, Kyle always carried Mckeon. It’s almost unlistenable (if thats even a word it would apply here)
Better than "the power block"
Great podcast! Latest episode with Shane from Motec was my favorite so far. The fact that you interview people who are removed from the mainstream and are pillars in the aftermarket/enthusiast sector of the automotive realm is your secret sauce. Gail Banks, Magnus Walker, etc. and or the engineers from the oems, or the spy photographers.... just awesome. It's great to get the behind the scenes look and technical side of things. It's a good time to be a car guy.
Look forward to the podcast evertweek
I love the podcasts. A must have for any auto enthusiast. Great guests from all corners of the motoring world. The hosts make a good team with a hint of dry humor which makes the show informative and fun.
Love the guests and the hosts!
Listen regularly to your podcasts and simply love them. The podcast with Ralph Hudson was fascinating. Keep up the great work. Thank you!
Need moar James!!
Love the podcast guys but we need more James!
Enjoy all the stories. Great content. This is one of my favorites.
Great show, with amazing variety
Great show, with an amazing variety of stories.
The interviews are so good.
couldnt stay awake, its like a pbs show zzzzzzzz
Love hearing the stories of all these great guests.
Best car enthusiast podcast
I'm a die hard auto enthusiast, both vintage and modern. I've tried several automotive podcasts and I've found Car Stories to be the very best.
AJ does a great job as host. He turns the episode into a story, by drawing out the guests with a narrative interview (some other car podcasts tend to follow a cookie cutter set of questions). Also the production quality is pretty good since interviews are generally conducted in person at the Petersen museum rather than over the phone.
Lastly there's a great variety of guests from car designers to racers to restorers. One week you might be hearing about driving at Le Mans in the 70s and the next week about the hot rod scene in LA and the following week automotive video games.
Great stuff, really enjoy the podcast.
Top Rate Podcast for Car Lovers
I love this podcast. Every guest has surprised me over and over again at how interesting they are. Many of them are folks I've never heard about in the media. AJ has an uncanny ability to make them so interesting. Maybe it's because he does such a wonderful job listening and eliciting information from his guests. Check this one out.
Amusing anecdotes and some random car tidbits you wouldn't otherwise know. Always good to stay in the loop. AJ Gordon (the host) manages to always have an interesting topic, keeping the podcast fresh and exciting.
A.J. is a terrific host and the mix of guests is great. One of my favorite
Stories, content, passion
Found this due to The Smoking tire and Chris Hayes's shout engine podcasts.
Some of the greatest short stories of mostly the LA car scene, but not limited solely.
A lot of behind the scene stories of many cars, builders, and just like minded car buffs, like a lot of us, that share the same vision that most of us do... Enthusiast cars that can drive us home after a long day of hoonavers-ing..
Dedicated to Blake Z Rong, Miata reliability and his new gig... Of not being a automotive journalist... Where ever you are Sir, may the Schwarts be with you.
I'll see you all at the Petersen.
*(Ya'all if in Texas)
I laughed. I wept. I downloaded more.
AJ's smooth baritone voice soothes me as I fall deeper down the rabbit hole of automotive nerd-dom.
Best car podcast ever. Love the guests AJ gets in each week.
Love the interview format, great guests and the questions asked are great
Lance in denver..
Keep them coming great job..
Great show, great ride
Look forward to each episode. Keep it up!
Best part of my morning
On my hour long commute everyday I listen to a few different podcasts. My favorite being Car Stories. A must have subscription for any car guy!
Well made and entertaining - worth a listen.
Solid show for those who love cars
I’m not nearly as knowledgeable as these guys about cars but I always feel like I’m keeping up and I walk away having learned some cool new facts.
Just what I was looking for
Perfect to listen to on your drive to/from work, at work, or any time really. The podcast is in-depth enough to entertain more hardcore enthusiasts while not alienating more casual car folks. Awesome podcast and a great list of guests.
Loving Cars Stories
I’m a podcaster with a focus on the automotive world. I love A.J. Gordon and Carstories. A.J. has been a guest on my podcast, Cars Yeah, and he’s quite the expert on cars and the hobby. Give CarStories a listen and you’ll love the show like I do.
Really love listening to this podcast. I listen on my way to work and find myself laughing and learning a lot about cars. Definitely something to listen to no matter what age you are.
Car guys talking cars
What's not to love? Great job!
A "must listen" for those interested in cars and the automotive world.
Best Automotive Podcast by far
This podcast is great! They get the best guests if you're a car nerd like me, and they keep the conversation simple and fun if you are just getting started with your auto obsession. LISTEN NOW! You won't regret it.
I love learning out the a-list interesting car guests this museum books.
Sean Paul Lorentzen
Always informative and in-depth!
Best Automotive Podcast!
The Petersen Automotive Museum consistently books exciting and engaging guests. A must listen for any car fan.
Good Podcast, great guests
I just wish the sound levels were consistent. Some episodes are hard to listen too.
Great High quality podcast
Really good entertaining interviews. Definitely worth a listen
