    E089: When the Devil Drives

    E089: When the Devil Drives

    When the devil drives he never pays for tolls! He also puts his bare feet up on the dash like a damned caveman, but that's neither here nor there. From a 1910 issue of Men's Railroad Magazine comes When the Devil Drives, the tale of a desperate father and his son riding the rails to greener pastures. With the devil, so it sounds like fun and they're going to stop for a lot of commemorative spoons. Check it out!

Nick Haskins ,

Simply PERFECT!

I love listening- and re-listening- to episodes of this show. Alan and Rob are just hilarious and the comedy of the interruptions is just amazing every time. I don't know how they manage to make it this funny this consistently, but I absolutely adore this show. Even on a re-binge I still laughed out loud numerous times.

It’s a little bit funny, these jokes told in stride

It’s no joke this show is amazing taking sometimes very bland stories and synthesizing one he🏒🏒 of a podcast. If your just reading this... well you could already be listening.

The Review That Usually Ends

One of the greatest reviews I can give: if you want to know what Mystery Science Theatre 3000 would be like in podcast form, listen to this.
The stories are usually not good, but the running commentary is great. I have actually laughed out loud. And to be honest, I do feel pretty good about myself when I get the more obscure references.
