Last week on the show, we heard from Jim in Olympia, Washington, with the curious case of five exes who had one thing in common -- they all drove Volkswagens!

Jim’s question for Tom and Ray? Just what does that odd fact say about him? (If you missed the call, you can catch it right here.)

Tom and Ray’s thoughts? Opposites attract! Jim’s Toyota Avalon represents dependability -- unlike the VWs his many exes were driving.
