The 2018 Formula One season is upon us, and who better to give you a totally uninformative preview than Rob and Jonny! Prior to dissecting all of the changes for the new season, as well as making the usual bold predictions, Jonny also talks about his recent trip to Wales driving the Caterham 620S. The chaps receive a rather interesting fax, posing the age-old question of the best layout for a mermaid. Rob and Ben humour Jonny in his attempts to diversify his skill set by becoming an art critic, and there's also time for more from Dictionary Corner.

Jonny has had two very fast Audis in recent weeks and reveals why he thinks the RS6 is the best car of all time, from a logical perspective. He also talks about the R8, which he took to Silverstone for a celebration of four-wheel drive with Porsche. Find out how he got car sick, and why you should eat at the Porsche Experience Centre. Rob once again delves into the dictionary to assist Ben in finding just the right words to describe Jonny, and the fax machine produces another classic listener question. Ben rounds things off with a quiz about New Zealand car names, and it becomes apparent that he likes to get a bit excited on aeroplanes.

Smooth Traffic has turned 40, and celebrated by having an existential crisis. However, before that, Ben returned from New Zealand and reveals all about the magical land and it's appalling hire cars. Jonny reveals details of the new VW up! GTI that everyone has been waiting for. Rob takes everyone on another trip to his dictionary corner, and Ben makes up for lost time overseas by talking about batteries.

January 19, 2018 11:46 AM PST

It's a Ben-free episode this time, as Jonny and Rob get stuck in to all the topics that don't interest Ben. Jonny reveals all about his luxury road trip to Scotland in the Rolls Royce Wraith Black Badge, as well as the slightly less luxurious couple of days he spent in Lisbon with the new Ford EcoSport. Rob helps Jonny fill in the gaps in his education in a new segment designed to answer any question that Jonny raises (think primary school level) and there's also another healthy discussion about the ethics involved in Gran Turismo Sport.

Join the chaps in full, festive spirit as they host an alcohol-fuelled Christmas special. Jonny tells more about his trip to Italy, and the car museums that he visited. Rob and Jonny go through their predictions for the 2017 F1 season and discover that they were right about everything. Probably. Ben gets things back on track with the movie character segment that Rob had started a few months ago. Rob hosts another segment from Dictionary Corner, complete with a brand new jingle. The rest of the episode consists of Jonny running a Dutch-based quiz as everyone gradually become totally sozzled. Merry Christmas!

December 07, 2017 12:19 PM PST

In an incredibly jovial episode, Rob teaches Jonny and Ben about the origins of some inappropriate words, Ben reveals some of his favourite quotes from the Smooth Traffic WhatsApp group, and Jonny is proven correct about his predictions for the future of the Subaru WRX STi. The chaps also reveal the patron saint of Smooth Traffic, and Jonny recounts the time he got stuck up a mountain in his Abarth... with audio recorded from his 'rescue'.

November 05, 2017 02:44 AM PST

There's a new Formula 1 World Champion and the chaps discuss where Lewis Hamilton ranks among the greats, as well as looking to future title challengers. Jonny has travelled to Paris, and reveals all about the city, including food, the surrounding towns and the attitude of cashiers at the supermarché. The chaps give a spot of useful insight into Blue microphones, Smooth Traffic's preferred podcasting microphones, as well as fake exhausts and autonomous vehicle traffic flow. Jonny reviews Gran Turismo Sport, and there's also time for Rob to have a rant about chips.

October 06, 2017 11:31 AM PDT

After a two-month hiatus, Smooth Traffic returns! In that time, Ben's changed his name, Jonny's bought a car, and Rob's life is exactly the same. Jonny and Rob talk about the cars they drove at the end of September at SMMT South, as well as their experiences in the Alfa Romeo 4C Spider earlier in the month. The chaps discuss Jonny's new car, the Abarth 695 XSR Yamaha Edition, and try to figure out what modifications Jon may be able to make without anyone else's help (it's not a big list!). Jonny also reviews the new Nissan X-Trail following a journey to Wales for the launch.

August 07, 2017 01:00 AM PDT

Jonny decides to draw comparisons between the Ford Mustang V8 and the Abarth 595 Competizione to find out whether or not size really matters. Ben sets Rob & Jonny a challenge that involves a trip to a scrapyard, and then bamboozles Jonny with a discussion on Elon Musk's boring company. Rob presents the second part of the film character fight to the death, with a guest appearance from Brum. Jonny previews his upcoming visit to Silverstone to drive some Radical cars, and the chaps receive another letter.

July 14, 2017 11:15 AM PDT

Jonny talks about his experiences in Germany with the new Honda Civic Type R, and also reviews the new Ford Fiesta after a brief trip to Spain. Ben asks about "Land of the Ancients" to great amusement while Rob tries to discuss phone data storage in rental cars. Finally, the chaps crack open the world of movies, to decide who will be the greatest film character in a fight to the death.
