TD178: Driver Shortage Remains, Railroad Strike Update, Major I-40 TN/NC Road Construction, Free Lunches, & More

In this week’s show, host Todd McCann’s voice is occupied training a new guy at work. So this week, long-time listener Steven Gorman volunteered to fill in. Steven talks about the alleged truck driver shortage, how the railroad strike is still pending, some major road construction to avoid, free lunches from an unlikely source, and believe it or not, Halloween candy. He even comes through with a Trucker Grub segment!

Steven has a TikTok channel where he likes to make stuff.
