Piloting Blackbirds and Gladiators: The Truck Show Podcast, Episode 152

Plus: Lightning’s thrill ride and our new (old) favorite holiday drink.

Dec 17, 2020

On This Week's Show:

  • Retired Air Force Pilot Bert Garrison Jr.
  • Ram TRX
  • Warm Dr. Pepper
For those gearheads who love to fly, this episode will be a pretty special one, as the guys become fast friends with retired Air Force pilot Major Bert G. Garrison, Jr. What started as a campfire conversation about overlanding in vintage iron morphed into some incredible storytelling about his time in the EF-111, B-52, T-43, U-2, and as the very last SR-71 Blackbird pilot. Lightning finally experiences Ram's TRX, and a listener rediscovers a favorite holiday drink from the past.

The Truck Show Podcast Presented by Nissan in association with DECKED and Duralast...

...is a fun, irreverent, and edgy look at today's world of custom and factory trucks, hosted by automotive journalist Sean Holman and veteran Los Angeles radio personality Jay "Lightning" Tilles. So sit back, relax, and enjoy the latest episode of The Truck Show Podcast.
