It’s Not Easy being a Brown Car Guy!

Very special and hilarious episode about the trauma, trials & tribulations of being a #BrownCarGuy

A very special, and hilarious, episode in which I talk about the unique challenges, particularly for me, in being a car guy as a brown or Asian person, and then on top of that, to actually (through blind determination and ignoring all the naysayers) choose to forge a career in automotive and motoring media and journalism, and still be struggling with that choice to the present day.

In this video I try to work out how many lives could be saved by the reduction in car use around the world due to the lockdown. It’s pretty staggering, but potentially there are lot more lives that will be saved due to another side-effect of the lockdown. Could they actually outweigh the tragic loss of lives the pandemic is causing? It might need better mathmaticians / statisticians / research analysts than me to figure it out though.
