WHAT: Ruby, iHeartMedia’s branded studio dedicated to crafting meaningful, impactful and culturally relevant stories with partners, today debuted “Car and Driver’s Into Cars,” a new podcast co-produced with Car and Driver, America’s new-car bible.

“Car and Driver’s Into Cars” examines the hottest and most compelling new cars of the year. As the name suggests, this show brings listeners into the cars to hear the engines revving and the tires squealing. After experiencing the cars, the hosts step into the studio to talk to the people who designed and built them. Episode One features the Lamborghini Huracan Sterrato, and upcoming episodes will include the Acura Integra Type S, BMW i5 and 530i, Cadillac Celestiq, Hyundai Ioniq 5 N, and the Toyota Land Cruiser.

WHO: Hosts Tony Quiroga, Editor-in-Chief of Car and Driver, and Eddie Alterman, Chief Brand and Content Officer of Hearst Autos, will bring to the show the same intelligence, independence and irreverence that has made Car and Driver a trusted source for news and reviews since 1955, and they will deliver unfiltered conversations about the most compelling new vehicles on the road. eBay Motors is the exclusive sponsor of “Car and Driver’s Into Cars” for season one.   

WHEN: The first episode of “Car and Driver’s Into Cars” is available today, June 6, 2024. New episodes will post each Thursday.
