Robert Llewellyn’s CarPool

September 9, 2009

I absolutely love the format in this show because it differs from any other show I’ve seen. Carpool, hosted by the talented Robert Llewellyn, (who is on the right in the picture/sitting in the driver side) is a show in which Robert drives a guest around and the guest talks about the city they live in. Also, the guests talk about their personal lives, what they do, etc. The interview happens in the car as Robert is driving and the guests sit in the passenger seat, very different from the usual set-up in a studio or room.

The first thing this reminded me was the political candidate interviews in the dorm room hosted by James Kotecki. If you are unfamiliar with this reference, watch the video below. It’s of an interview with James and Ron Paul back in 2007 talking about his run for president.

If you are unfamiliar with Robert (Bobby) Llewellyn, he is a English actor “best known for his roles as presenter of Scrapheap Challenge, and as the android Kryten in the hit sitcom Red Dwarf.” (Source: Wikipedia) With his background in mainstream media, he uses the online services and video sharing sites to create a show of his own with a very unique way of presenting interviews. Not only does this show have a different feel, but the website he has is absolutely amazing, utilizing old Windows/Mac OS designs.

Watch Robert Llewellyn’s CarPool every week, which you can subscribe to on iTunes, Blip.tv, or his website, which is the best place to find the podcast/netcast/show.

UPDATE: Thanks for those who noticed that I made a mistake on which side Robert is on. I fixed it.

    Pretty spot-on review, in my mind. This is 1 of 3 Podcasts that I truly enjoy, and download to listen to/watch on a regular basis. The David Mitchell, Charlotte Reather, Brian Cox and David Baddiel episodes are insanely good value for time.

    “who is on the left in the picture”.
    I think that Jonathon Ross may have something to say about that!

    Actually, Robert is on the right, driving. Jonathon Ross is on the left.

    Oops, typo. Jonathan Ross.

    I am really pleased you gave my show such a great review, thank you so much. I really appreciate it. However there is one tiny error. In the picture you have used I am in fact the one on the right. I was driving the Tesla Roadster on that day, and my passenger (the one on the left) is in fact Jonathan Ross, a very popular talk show host in the UK. Just thought I’d mention it. All the best, Robert

    Robert Llewellyn, (who is on the left in the picture) – WRONG!!

    Try
    Robert Llewellyn, (who is seated on the left in the picture) or
    Robert Llewellyn, (who is seen on the right in the picture)

    Robert is always in the drivers seat which can vary in some episodes. In the Jonathan Ross episode pictured he is in a left hand drive Tesla Roadster.

    Just a clarification – Robert Llewellyn is on the right in this picture. The gentleman on the left is Jonathan Ross, a British radio and TV presenter.

    Carpool is a great podcast, indeed. Interesting and fun.

    One small factual correction – in the picture above Robert Llewellyn is on the right (wearing glasses) – the interviewee in this case is British chat show host Jonathan Ross. 🙂

      Thanks for noting that. I will make the correction right away.
