#0629: The Rat Rides Shotgun

Original Air Date: 07.22.2006

   Best Moment

Description: 
Caution, rodent-o-phobes: this week’s encore show may cause permanent heebie-jeebies. Anna may never be the same after she stared down a beady-eyed hitchhiker. Hear how “Andy” regressed back to puberty when he thought he broke Dad’s car. Will he get grounded? And Linda wants to know the best way to hook up a dogsled team to an ATV. Is all that Alaskan air freezing her brain? Plus, things you never want to overhear when you’re about to go under the knife. That, and a few more recurring nightmares, in this week’s encore show!

Great show, all around

by Anonymous

I just bought this show on Audible.com, and listened to it while killing time on a business trip. It's been a while since I listened to Car Talk, and this show seemed consistently entertaining-- more so than other recent show.

Favorite Moment: The closing credits this week were really funny. Who makes this stuff up?

Nice Clip. How come the default audio player now is quicktime instead of RealPlayer?
