Under the Knife with Car Talk

From: Nigel Campbell

Dear Click and Clack,

I was intrigued by a comment that you made a few weeks ago on your show when, after pausing from badgering a caller, you observed that "We sound like doctors." I took particular interest in this, because you two aren't the first to notice that little fact. I'm a first year medical student at the University of Washington School of Medicine. A couple of months ago, the outstanding head of our clinical medicine courses, Dr. Erika Goldstein, surprised us by using a tape of you two as an example of how to diagnose medical problems. During that time, our class got to learn how to talk with a patient about his or her illness by hearing you two guys (as usual) spending equal amounts of time asking searching questions and laughing at your own jokes. Anyway, I feel that, in the name of public safety, your listeners should know that the next time they go under the knife their doctor may have been trained by you two clowns. I love your show. Keep up the good work.

All the best,
Nigel Campbell
