Norman Pattiz Announces Launch Of Spike's Car Radio Show On PodcastOne

According to a recent news release, Norman Pattiz announced that Spike Feresten would host a new podcast called Spike's Car Radio on PodcastOne, which remains the largest ad-supported podcast network in the United States. Norman Pattiz is the founder of the network.

Spike Feresten Brings Experience
Mr. Feresten is known for his comedic writing contributions in a popular episode of Seinfeld. He is also passionate about cars and hosted a television series about matching people with the right cars. In the show, he would get to know someone who needed a car. Using his instincts and knowledge, he picked a few vehicles that he felt matched the person's needs and desires. Mr. Feresten has also been a part of several talk shows including David Letterman and others. Also, he appeared on Saturday Night Live.

The Perfect Blend Of Car Talk And Humor
The latest podcast show was inspired by Mr. Feresten's weekly gatherings with friends to talk about cars at Malibu Kitchen. The show will take place at the idyllic restaurant, and celebrity guests who come to the venue will be featured on the show. They will have the chance to talk about their own cars while having coffee with Spike Feresten, Jerry Seinfeld and Paul Zuckerman.

The trio will be seated on the porch of Malibu Kitchen, and an empty seat is available at the table for the guest. The gentlemen plan to have humorous discussions about automotive news, test drives, new vehicles and buying advice. Some guests who will be stopping by soon include Dick Van Dyke, Jeremy Piven and Chris Hardwick. Currently, interested listeners can find the debut episode on or on the Apple Podcasts and PodcastOne apps.

Jerry Seinfeld helps form many of the entertainment segments of the show, and Paul Zuckerman brings hundreds of entertaining automotive stories with him to tell. With the humorous personalities of the three men, the show is expected to be a hit with any car enthusiast as well as with people who are interested in buying new, used or classic cars. Including advice about buying cars widened the base of interested listeners considerably. Few automotive shows target this group and only focus on car enthusiasts instead.

Mr. Feresten said that he has been going to Malibu Kitchen for many years to meet with friends for breakfast, car talk and jokes. As a routine that he especially enjoys and looks forward to, he hopes to share that experience with any interested listener. Mr. Feresten said that he likes the concept of being paid to talk about what he loves while enjoying breakfast in the beautiful Southern California weather. The television writer and screenwriter is sure to make the new show a hit. When asked about the show's launch, founder Norman Pattiz said that June was a great month with the initial episode being released. Also, they made episodes featuring Cold Case from A&E and Kaitlyn Bristowe.
