This week I was lucky to sit down with Nick Murray who hosts a popular automotive YouTube channel that now has an audience of over 86k subscribers. During our time together, Nick shared some of his insights from reviewing cars to his approach on creating engaging videos, several of which have received over 1M views.


We also talked about a some things Nick hasn’t shared on YouTube including his life growing up in New Zealand and his adventures as a helicopter pilot. Towards the end of our chat, Nick and I had a spirited discussion about some of the cars he’s driven and he offered me some helpful perspective on my own personal car debate.
