Reach a highly engaged, hyperlocal audience with Car Con Carne!

Car Con Carne is a 1-3x weekly video show (YouTube, Facebook) and podcast (Apple, Amazon, Google, Stitcher, TuneIn, iHeart). Before the pandemic hit, Car Con Carne would record on location, outside city and suburban restaurants and brewpubs. During the pandemic, the show went virtual… and nightly. As the world has opened back up, Car Con Carne is constantly delivering using a hybrid of the two methods.

Hosted by Chicago media personality James VanOsdol (WKQX, WLUP, WGN, WXRT), Car Con Carne launched over seven years ago and has seen its audience grow more than 50% every year since its launch. The audience is:

*Web and app-savvy
*Active in the Chicago DMA
*Interested in Chicago culture, dining, craft beer, music, nerd culture, independent theater, local/small business and media
*A mix of 25-54 year-old men and women

Sponsorship opportunities can include:

  • Title sponsorship (“Car Con Carne, presented by YOUR BUSINESS HERE”)
  • Pre- and mid-roll advertising
  • Weekly Facebook Live mentions/naming
  • Product placement (audio/video/photo)

Sponsorships are available in 3, 6 and 12-month packages. Car Con Carne welcomes partners looking to expand both their digital and Chicago area reach. Contact for more information!
