The show's growth and success come from its unique blend and balance of topics and guests.

The Drive is a collaboration between Steve Jaxon and Producer Mike De Wald. In this video interview embedded on a page of our blog, you can see Mike and Steve interviewed by journalist Daedalus Howell. Steve tells the story of how he developed the concept for a daily talk show that would cover all topics, not just political news but a careful balance of serious and fun stories and guests.
