Created by Dave Nemo and his partner Michael Burns, RadioNemo has built a loyal audience of more than 1.5 million listeners nationwide.

The Foundations of PodWheels
The development of PodWheels can be traced back to the career path taken by Greg Thompson, the founder and executive producer of PodWheels.
After more than a decade of working in media as a producer, reporter. and feature writer, Greg joined the transportation industry in 1998. As part of a public relations team for a large truckload carrier, Greg created content highlighting and engaging the carrier’s driving community.
14 years of daily conversations with the trucking industry provided Greg with an invaluable education. He interviewed hundreds of drivers and executives for feature stories, video segments, and audio interviews.
While working in transportation, Greg discovered a well-produced and tightly edited audio interview of a driving professional is a highly effective form of communication. Observations made by professional drivers during a podcast speak directly to listening drivers. They hear stories about themselves told by themselves.
In many ways, that idea is the foundation of PodWheels. If you would like to learn more about Greg Thompson and his individual experience, please click here.
