In episode 61 we go over the West Virginia teachers strike and why it’s a good thing. We also cover the Rick Gates indictment. The Pete asks, “How old is 18 really?. And no, it’s not what you think. In part 3 of 3 of driverless cars Aaron asks, “What kind of poster will you hang on your wall when all of the cars look the same?.
In episode 60 a discussion takes place about the mass shooting in Florida. Then we talk about billionaire philanthropist playboy’s and their sometimes insane ideas and what that means for us. Part two of driverless automobiles is all about rules and regulations, sounds dry and sort of is but we try to make it fun.
In episode 59 we discuss the flu epidemic and the impact that televangelists may have on the population at large. The second topic is all about Elon Musk and Space X, because he and they did a thing and it was a really interesting thing. For the third we talk about the different levels of driverless cars and what those levels mean to us right now and what they might mean in the future.
In episode 58, again, its all things Trump. Especially the Girther movement. In the the second topic we discuss population growth and whether it is exponential or linear and the sustainability of such high numbers. In the last topic Aaron explains the differences between over-steer, under-steer, and psycho-steer.
In episode 57 we dabble in foreign and domestic politics this time. I new there was a whole big world out there I just couldn’t find it through the sea of orange. Then a discussion ensues about ICE raiding 7-11’s, and a little about identity politics. Then the question is asked, “What is it about JDM car culture that is fascinating to everybody except for the Japanese?”
Feedback time! It was logistically difficult for all three to get together in the garage to record so sadly no episode. We would like to take this opportunity to ask you, the listener, what you think about the show. What are we doing right or what are we doing wrong? What would you like to hear more of or what would you like to hear less of? Do you listen to us because we have intelligent, meaningful conversations or do you listen to us because of the beer review? Any other likes or dislikes? We want to become better at what we do and we can’t do that without feedback. Thanks for listening and we hope to hear from you.
In episode 55 we talk Trump and shithole countries, Trump and pornstars, and a retraction about North Korea. Their missiles can reach further than we thought, sorry. Then we discuss the raw water movement and Oregon Trail. Your wagon wheel fell off and you died of… In the third segment we ask, “Why do Americans settle for such shitty small cars?”
In episode 54 we discuss how Trumps button may or may not be bigger than everybody else’s button. There was also a book released detailing the Trump Whitehouse. In the second segment Tim and Pete go full geek, pocket protectors and all. In the last segment Aaron attempts to discuss the pros and cons between independent rear axles and live axles but was interrupted by Tim, as per usual.
In episode 53 we we discuss the insane interview trump did with the New York Times. We also go over what had happened to Nestle and their water supply. The second topic will be determinism. Does the time sausage have all of the answers for all time or just up until now? Do fate and destiny actually exist or is determinism unanswerable? Topic the third will be a comparison between the 2.4 liter engines from Honda and Toyota.
T’was the night of the podcast…
Terrance’s lawyer called to let us know
we have paid our dues, we’ve been let go
It is a day of celebration
We shall indulge in some libation
This has been a major breakthrough
And just before Christmas too
We thought what a nice gesture it would be,
to invite them over for nice cup of tea
They accepted, Hooray! all shall be well,
our hearts went a flutter and began to swell
But then it began to rain ice from the sky,
“Oh dear,” said Pete, “won’t they all die?”
We held out hope and shoveled like mad,
But alas we saw no one and then became sad
“Wait,” shouted Aaron, “what’s that over there?”
As a cloud of black floated through the air
We were all so scared we thought we’d be beaten
Chewed up and mashed and then excreted
But what was this, it was a voice that we know
It was the angelic ring of Terrance’s widow
“Hark,” said she, “Don’t shoot, we come bearing a gift.”
We thought, how sweet, and that was the end of the rift
With smiles we put on the kettle and sat by the fire
While his relatives were all sitting on wire
As Tim told stories they all listened
Aaron stared out the window as the snow glistened
Aaron thought of the podcast and decided,
no way not tonight that would be misguided.
