TMCP #392: Sean Holman of The Truck Show Podcast; Loud, Proud, and Sometimes Annoying – Ask Rick, Why Isn’t All Shipping “Free?”
In this episode I spoke to Sean Holman, half of the Lightning and Holman duo that hosts the hit podcast “The Truck Show” for Motortrend. Mike Finnegan introduced us and the two shows have collaborated on a few things over the last year. Sean has always been fascinated with automotive topics and trucks but his start is not the typical story. Early on, Sean obtained a degree in criminal justice and wanted to be an officer. Unfortunately he did not like the bureaucracy and started looking for alternatives to his chosen career. On Sept 11, 2001 he was working in a Boeing factory working security supporting the Shuttle missions and had to make sure the plant was shut down and secure right after the attacks. Employees were watching the skies and listening to silence, unsure of what would happen next. Sean made the jump out of security right after that, by making contacts at Primedia and working his way into being the associate editor of Truckin’ magazine.

Rob here. Mike is out this week, and when plans change suddenly it’s time to go with what you know best; a great pull from the archives! This episode features Mike’s first appearance on The Muscle Car Place in 2015 (Episode 254).
I didn’t know Mike very well at the time but asked if he’d be interested in telling his story of the birth of Roadkill for a feature interview – and he said yes! For those of you who want to know how Roadkill happened, why he moved out of California, etc., this is the full sout-to-nuts story. It was a one-in-a-million happenstance set up by the coming switch to digital content, good talent, an early deal from YouTube, and the pure genius of David Freiburger. Listen in to hear how it all happened.

In this episode of TMCP our feature guest is Tony Angelo. I am sure you will recognize Tony from shows like Hot Rod Garage or Roadkill formerly on YouTube, now on the new Motor Trend on Demand network, but have you heard the back story on how Tony came to be on those shows? My friend Mike Finnegan thought it would be great for Tony to come on the show and tell me all about it.
