This is the classic car podcast you shouldn’t miss this season

Classic Driver has teamed up with BMW Group Classic to bring you ‘Classic Heart’, a new and entertaining podcast about car culture. Don’t miss the latest episodes when our very own J.P. Rathgen talks cars with Laura Kukuk and Ben Clymer.

If you are like us, you could talk about cars all day – and listen to fellow petrolheaded enthusiasts sharing their opinions and experiences from the world of classic and collectable automobiles. Luckily, Classic Driver enables us to do exactly this! But while we cover the collector car world with our magazine since almost 25 years, we have never ventured in the world of podcasts – until now. Together with our friends from BMW Group Classic and our creative consultancy CD Works, we have launched the first season of our collaboration podcast ‘Classic Heart’. In each episode, our CEO and frontman J.P. Rathgen meets a high-profile guest from the automotive world, such as the petrolheaded pilot Anders Bilidt, interior designer Can Eyilik, Coldplay’s Guy Berryman, creative director Mai Ikuzawa, YouTuber-at-large Jason Cammisa, classic car specialist Laura Kukuk, Hodinkee founder and watch guru Ben Clymer, and Frank van Meel, CEO of BMW M. 

All episodes of ‘Classic Heart’ are available on all major streaming platforms including Apple Podcasts, Amazon Music, Google Podcasts and Spotify. You can stream all episodes below.
