As the auto industry struggles, the Detroit Auto Show has been dramatically scaled back. Auto writer Paul Eisenstein, who's been covering the annual event, talks to guest host Dave Davies about what this year's gathering says about the current state of the industry.

Eisenstein writes for The Detroit Bureau, an independent auto-news service. He has reported on the automotive industry for more than 30 years, and was the publisher and director of the auto-news Web site The Car Connection.
