Murrieta, CA Power Automedia is making some changes to the products offered in the upcoming year with the addition of two video podcasts. The two video podcasts, also known as vodcasts, will be hosted on Street Muscle and Dragzine websites as well as most popular video platforms.

Followers of Street Muscle Magazine are already familiar with the recurring podcast, RodCAST Live, which began airing episodes in January 2020. Vinny Costa and Greg Acosta take viewers and listeners on an all-encompassing dive into the deep-end of all things automotive with guests ranging from racers to journalists, manufacturers, car builders, industry personalities, and much more. RodCAST Live airs every Friday at 12pm PST on the Street Muscle Facebook page and the newly created Street Muscle YouTube channel. It will soon launch natively on as well as other platforms. For those who are just learning of RodCAST Live and are interested in catching up, previous episodes will be uploaded to the Street Muscle YouTube channel every Tuesday at 12pm PST.

The Dragzine Podcast has been airing episodes since 2019 and will be receiving a few updates with the new year. The show is kept light-hearted and fun by host Brian Wagner, Sr. Associate Editor of Dragzine, and takes listeners on a trip beyond what they might normally see, read, or hear when it comes to the biggest names in drag racing. Episodes of The Dragzine Podcast feature guests from every corner of the drag racing world including big-money bracket racers, top tuners, and professional NHRA racers. The Dragzine Podcast had been purely audio for almost two years, however, starting in December it will transition to a video format which will utilize the Power Automedia YouTube channel that had been recently rebranded as Dragzine. Episodes will debut every Thursday at 12pm PST on, the new YouTube, Facebook, and IGTV.

To accompany the two video podcasts, Street Muscle Magazine and Dragzine will each be creating custom newsletters that provide additional sponsorship opportunities to clients enrolled in Power Automedia’s newly revised “Everywhere +” advertising package. The new designs will offer dedicated space for two pieces of custom-crafted sponsored content in addition to showcasing exclusive content not found on Power Automedia’s various magazine sites. 

“Having one of the largest and most sought after email lists, we have been asked by our partners if we could provide an opportunity for a sponsored newsletter for years,” stated Lloyd Hunt, Power Automedia’s Senior Director of Business Development. “Our readers’ experience is important to us, so not only did we want this updated newsletter to be valuable to them but also not overly promotional. Utilizing our existing vodcasts, it simply made sense to provide this 360 degree marketing approach.”
