Finally!

Excellent show... funny... insightful... informative... and the puzzler is great. Family friendly show. Glad to see if finally as a podcast.

So I guess we can expect to hear... "And don't podcast like my brother!"

I love Car Talk!

These guys are great listening whether you're working out, listening at home or driving. My dad got me hooked many years ago. He used to record the shows on tape. I'd always take a boxful of casettes with me when I drove to/from college 1100 miles from home. They're entertaining and educational. I feel quite confident in my ability to diagnose a bad master cylinder or a worn fan belt... They have some material that is kind of cheesy but the hour is well worth it. It's truly a part of my life. I hope they never retire! Listen in...you won't be disappointed!

Roses are red, fire is hot,

This show is great, and NPR is not.
