Our Car Talk Time Kill Weekly comes out, well.... whenever we have something worth saying. Which is more like once every few weeks.
Our Time Kill Weekly pals are the first to know what's going on behind the scenes at Car Talk Plaza, and often get a chance to preview new features before they debut on the Car Talk web site.
