Use Car Con Carne as your vehicle (sorry) to reach a highly-motivated, enthusiastic audience!

Car Con Carne is a nightly, hyperlocal video show (YouTube, Facebook) and podcast (Apple, Amazon, Google, Stitcher, TuneIn, iHeart). Pre-pandemic, the show was recorded onsite at Chicago restaurants with Chicago guests. Since March, 2020, the show’s been recorded from home and seen a 100% increase in audience, YoY (2019-2020).
