Trucker Dump Podcast

I’ve been driving trucks for 21 years, yet I still learn something new in each episode. The topics are well-researched, the hosts are entertaining, and the audio quality is top-notch. I highly recommend Big Rig Banter to anyone interested in the trucking industry.

We love being able to speak to professional drivers while they're rolling down the road. We're thankful for the platform BRB has shared with us so that together we can equip drivers to recognize and report sex trafficking. Hammer down and stay safe out there!
