Soup soothes the soul they say. You’ve also probably heard of sup gearbox. Well cease to wonder how that form of nourishment gained its phallic references as it’s actually due to the dish being stewed with a bull’s knee joint sticking out of it like a gear lever in a car.
Best consumed after you cecah roti in it, the uncanny automotive reference also made it the ideal title for the country’s first automotive podcast. Said podcast is a collaboration between yours truly; Behind the Wheel and our sister site Drebar together with SYOKcast.
“Sup GearBox: Borak Gosip Auto bersama Erywan & Chris (Soup Gearbox: Auto chatter with Erywan & Chris)” is a Malay language podcast exclusive to the SYOK app that delves into the questions that seem to always float around the auto-sphere but never seem to get answered definitively.
We’re here to give it a shot with the expert opinions of Erywan Nor Shal and Chris Ng, the managing editors of Drebar.my and Behind the Wheel respectively.
The laidback duo with over a decade of experience each in the automotive media industry will do their best to tackle some of the pressing issues such as purchasing your first car, automotive maintenance and other issues that tend to ask more questions than answers are available.
You’ll find a total of 10 episodes in the first season with the occasional appearance from prominent industry personalities such as Gan Yong Li; also known as Gan Comel, the founder of Pandulaju.com.my and Ahirine Ahirudin, a reporter with HLive on Astro Ria and a motocross enthusiast.
