The Death of the Car Magazine?, The Heartbeat of America
Dec 13, 2019 Season 1 Episode 7
Harvey Briggs, Editor/Publisher of Rides & Drives

Host Tom Appel and co-host Damon Bell start the show by discussing the recent news that TEN Publishing is discontinuing the print editions of 19 car magazines, including Automobile and Truck Trend. Next, we talk about the 2020 Honda Civic Hatchback Sport Touring, one of our Consumer Guide test-fleet vehicles this week. Harvey Briggs, Editor and Publisher of Rides & Drives (ridesanddrives.com), calls in for an interview on his days in the automotive advertising industry and the creation of Chevrolet's well-remembered "Heartbeat of America" and "Like a Rock" campaigns. Damon gives a run-down of the articles posted this week on The Daily Drive blog (including a First Look at the all-new 2021 Chevrolet Tahoe and Suburban), and Tom gleefully annoys Damon with a pop quiz on automobile/movie-title puns. We wrap up the show with a quick reminiscence of our favorite car magazines when we were young.
