Jim Farley Podcast Returns With Star-Studded Guest Lineup

Ford CEO Jim Farley has long been known as a car guy and is a rather successful amateur racer that also somehow finds time to drive rally carshelp the homeless at the Pope Francis Center in Detroit, and take others for a spin around the track for a good cause on the rare occasion that he has a spare few minutes of time. Despite all of that, Farley embarked on another unpaid endeavor back in 2022, hosting a podcast on Spotify called Drive, where he interviewed his fair share of celebrities, seeking to learn what helped make each successful. Now, Drive is returning for a second season that will continue that trend.

In season one of Drive, Farley conducted interviews with a host of famous folks including actor actor Dax Shepard, late-night show host Jimmy Kimmel, Harley-Davidson CEO Jochen Zeitz, YouTuber Emelia Hartford, the Duke of Richmond, Girls Auto Clinic founder Patrice Banks, and NFL legend Tom Brady. In season two, Farley’s guests will include CNN correspondent and son of the first Ford female engineer Dr. Sanjay Gupta, singer Kelly Clarkson, and late-night host Jimmy Fallon, among others that have yet to be announced.

It’s unclear what other guests will be invited to speak with Farley on the podcast, as the series is still taping, but we do know that the first episode – set to air next Wednesday, January 10th – will feature Gupta and will be available to listen to on Spotify, Apple, and YouTube.

Jim Farley previously admitted that he wasn’t crazy about hosting his own podcast, but later warmed to the idea when he chose to discuss things other than his daily work leading Ford Motor Company – things like cars and life in general. Season one aired exclusively on Spotify, but managed to rank among the top 50 business podcasts on that platform, even cracking the top 10 out of 996 shows.

Brett's lost track of all the Fords he's owned over the years and how much he's spent modifying them, but his current money pits include an S550 Mustang and 13th gen F-150.

    Well, if Ford wanted to be a regional brand in the USA, it just succeeded… it lost the EV bandwagon in Europe and I have no doubt it declined!

    A who’s who of far left buffoons.

      Birds of a feather flock together. Maybe he should have the person in charge of QC as a guest.

      Perfect reason not to watch.

    Maybe I’m in the minority, but I’d prefer if he ran the motor company more, and podcast less.
