In episode 44 we discuss the ruling that the FCC has made and how that affects companies like Sinclair Media. The next topic is sex robots, (think Futurama),are they bad or are they good that is the question. The last segment is about rotary engines and why they get so much hate.
In episode 43 we were invited to record at Griffs Brewery in Spencerport NY. We graciously obliged. Topic the first is about cellphone companies and what they are doing with your information and just how much information they access. Topic the second is beer because, well, we are at a brewery, what else would we talk about. Topic the third Aaron asks, “Why do people always think it was better back “then” when it pertains to cars and auto racing?”

We apologize for not having an episode this week. We took this weeks recording off due to a death in the family. We are sorry to say that Terrance the cricket has passed. When we came into the garage to start the recording we found his cold lifeless body by a microphone stand (probably trying to get the last word). We quickly decided to not record and instead held a funeral for Terrance. It was a nice funeral, Aaron said a few words about our fallen comrade, Brandon played the tiniest violin (I asked where he got it but he said he’s owned it so long he doesn’t remember, strange), Tim sat on his stool and looked pensive. Then we took him out back and buried him with a microphone by his side. Because that’s what he loved.
In episode 41 the Russia probe, and the fact that nobody has found anything, is the topic of the day. We talk about the Las Vegas shooter and that inevitably leads into a topic about guns. For the last topic we have a suggestion from our facebook page, have a listen and find out what it was.
In episode 40 we discuss why pardoning people before they are convicted is wrong. We’re looking at you Trump. In the next segment we talk about vegans and why their argument for not eating or wearing meat is silly. In the last segment Aaron asks, “Why do you think there are so few American Formula 1 drivers?” The answer may surprise you, tune in at 8:30 EST to find out why.
In episode 39 Joe is with us and asks if it would have been better to vote your conscience or to vote for Hillary Clinton knowing that the other option was Trump?. We try and wrap our heads around the simulation argument. Put simply, “Are we in a simulation?” We don’t know and we may never know. Lastly is it better to learn and work on your own car, even if you have the money to take it to a professional? Hopefully in this episode Terrance the Cricket isn’t too intrusive as he had been locked outside to quell the bitching from the drunken cricket.
In episode 38 we try and cover DACA and immigration and what it might mean to be an illegal immigrant in the US. Don’t judge us too harshly after all we are four white guys. Brandon then asks, “What would happen to humanity were the Internet to break irreparably?” What do you, the listener, think might happen? In the last segment we discuss what our favorite decade of car is; styling, performance, and efficiency are at the forefront of their choices.
In episode 37 we are discussing hurricanes Harvey and Irma, their effects on the population of the US, and how global warming ties into the size of Irma in particular. Next we compare film versus digital cameras, which on is better and which we prefer. Lastly Aaron asks a “what if” question pertaining to cars and and adult responsibilities.
In episode 36 we are discussing Hurricane Harvey and what is being done about it and what is not being done. To lighten things up we ask, “Was Gene Roddenberry a time traveler, and can we look forward too a Star Trek type future?” The last segment talks about plastic models and the idea that they help you understand the engineering behind automobiles.
In episode 35 the media is at the forefront of the conversation. Is it Trumps fault for the resurgence of the white nationalist/Neo-Nazi movement or is it the media that is now covering those groups more? Timmy’s topic this week is about evolution/science deniers. The last topic asks, “Can we(humans) make it to Mars and survive, and can we get back.” Do you think it would be a one way trip? Let us know.
