Past Gas #141: Suzuki Turned A Motorcycle Racer Into A Spy
2022/06/13
Today on Past Gas, the story of the motorcycle racer turned spy Ernst Degner-- as well as that of a Nazi engineer named Walter Kaaden. Why was Degner leaving East Germany at the height of his fame? How was the Japanese company Suzuki embroiled in his defection? And what secrets did Degner have stuffed in a briefcase that he was carrying with him on that Autumn day in communist Germany? Degner and Walter’s destinies were shaped by larger-than-life forces-- but through a series of choices of their own making, they shaped their futures, and in the process, altered the history of motorcycle racing forever.

Past Gas #140: Ford Almost Dies Again
2022/06/06
TODAY ON PAST GAS: The 2008 crash nearly killed Detroit. How did Ford survive not one but two massive financial calamities within a span of five years? Could Ford transition from its history of larger than life, charismatic leaders, to someone with a steadier hand? There’s arguably an alternate reality where Ford-- and its American competitors-- completely folded just over a decade ago. Is a guy you may have never heard of-- Alan Mulally-- the GOAT of resurrecting dying companies?
