The Chicago Auto Show runs February 8-17 at McCormick Place on Chicago's lake shore. I will be "On the Beat" as always, but for now I am recalling some fun times over the years at the Chicago Auto Show.
Last year, one of my highlights was meeting and interviewing Adam Carolla. That interview can be found at On the Beat with Adam Carolla. As a longtime fan of Adam, this was a big thrill. As a reporter, this was a pretty big name to add to my resume.
We talked about his love of cars (especially interesting given we were at the Chicago Auto Show), his podcasting, his first pitch and much more. Adam was really open and funny throughout, but I think he really got into the discussion of his first pitch. He definitely did not do a "Baba Booey" and he explained his process.
Adam is an immensely successful podcaster. He has also worked as a radio host, an actor, a television host, an author and more. I loved his work with Jimmy Kimmel on Loveline.
Adam loves owning and working on cars, but he also loves racing them. He is proud of winning a couple big races.
I appreciate Adam's time and consideration in talking to me. I thank the fine folks of the Chicago Auto Show in facilitating this interview and giving me access all throughout the show.
