TD184: Accidents Won’t Ruin Your Career, Public’s View Of Truckers, CB Lingo, Trucker Movies, & More

In this week’s show, guest host Steven Gorman talks about the difference between accidents and incidents, and how neither should keep you from succeeding in your trucking career. And he backs that up by telling you about his roads mishaps and where he is now.

In the news segment, Steven talks about the top 10 largest private trucking companies, he’ll provide some further evidence to disprove the “truck driver shortage” myth, and he’ll site a survey telling how the public views truckers in 2022. Also, he’ll point you to a CB radio lingo website so you can study up for the 18 trucker movies you may or may not have forgotten about.

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