Take a look back on 2018 and, viewed through the lenses of time and the myriad of conversations and voices heard on the Overdrive Radio podcast, 2018 might well be dubbed the year of ticky-tack and more serious issues related to the implementation of, what else, the electronic logging device mandate. Owner-operators’ adjustments in light of the mandate, which began being enforced in a significant way on April Fool’s Day of the year, loom over almost the entirety of the top 10 most-listened-to episodes of the podcast here, including some mailbag rounds of callers’ messages on related issues that very nearly made the top 10 themselves.
In this the last Overdrive Radio episode of the year, take a review run back through some of those most memorable moments from the top 10 most-listened-to episodes of the year, from details of owner-op Mark Kirbyson’s skepticism of any wisdom present in the oft-repeated adage “you shoulda planned better” in light on the mandate to more than two podcasts dedicated to recognizing the many best-avoided games brokers play in contracts; Scott Hampton‘s tale of his participation in the 10-4 D.C. convoy and his 2000 379 ground-up customization; the “Amazon effect” on freight patterns and how owner-operators are – or aren’t – adjusting in the dry van world; and much much more.
