THE GRILLE tops Aussie podcast list

13 January 2022

VACC's THE GRILLE has been recognised as one of the top Australian podcasts in 2021.

Released by Great Australian Pods, engagement numbers and website views were analysed in order to reveal the year's fan favourites.

Published monthly, each episode of THE GRILLE – an automotive industry podcast – features news and views about the state of Australia’s automotive industry, as well as an interview with a famous motoring personality such as Jeremy Clarkson, Daniel Ricciardo and Molly Taylor.

The crew includes Greg Rust – one of Australia’s best-known motorsport journalists and commentators with years of experience behind the microphone and in front of the camera – in the driver’s seat. He is joined by Shane Jacobson, an immediately identifiable and well-loved actor, presenter, and knowledgeable automotive enthusiast with fuel coursing through his veins. Bringing rigour and a business perspective, VACC CEO Geoff Gwilym is a respected automotive professional with decades of industry experience.

“It’s such a rare thrill to be working with the best in the business, and THE GRILLE team really is the best. Greg Rust is so knowledgeable and well-connected within the automotive world, and Geoff Gwilym is the go-to guy for industry comment. What he doesn’t know isn’t worth knowing. I’m really geared up for THE GRILLE. Talking all things automotive? Try to stop me,” said Shane.

In the midst of all the noise out there, THE GRILLE is proudly different. Boasting the best and most knowledgeable hosts, with quality content and high production values, the show has become a favourite among automotive professionals, motoring enthusiasts, and motorsport fans.
