The Lead Pedal Podcast aims to be a positive voice for truck drivers in the transportation industry. The Lead Pedal Podcast is a Canadian show for those in the trucking industry wanting to improve their trucking careers or businesses. What does The Lead Pedal Podcast mean? The Lead (pronounced “Led”) stands for acceleration or fast-track of your career. It is a play on words and we certainly are not here promoting speeding in the industry. We are hoping this information will help you become a professional driver faster than if you didn’t know about many of these topics.

"New School Information with Old School Pride!"

The interviews, information, features and other items that are meant to be helpful for drivers and those in the trucking industry. We are not here to wine and complain about the industry but aim to offer positive ways to create a successful trucking career. Professional truck drivers work for good carriers, good carriers treat drivers better, and pay better, therefore having good careers. Learn more at www.theleadpedalpodcast.com
