#1505: My Brother, The Idiot

Jan 31, 2015
This week on The Best of Car Talk, Ray decides to play Stormchaser, during one of the worst blizzards in Our Fair State’s history. Fortunately, we have an eyewitness account of his bold, daring, and completely idiotic adventure—even his dog was scared! Elsewhere in the post-blizzard landscape, Susan is wondering if she can just leave her car buried in snow until the July 4th thaw; and Kristopher may need Lord Kelvin himself to convince his girlfriend to turn on her Golf’s heater. Also, can Beth do anything do protect her white Camry from the local berry-eating mockingbird that’s using it as a commode? All this and more, this week on The Best of Car Talk.

#1505: My Brother, The Idiot

I love this show. Then again I have loved all your shows. I want to purchase this show in an MP 3 download but cannot find it on Amazon (which is where I have purchased many shows in the past year or two.) I have also purchased every single CD you have out. I suggest you offer the 'Complete catalogue of 'every single' show that was every broadcast (and outtakes and other 'stuff' not heard before would be nice too) Please do this for all of us who love Tom and Ray and their wonderful 'Car Talk' program. Thank you.
Favorite Moment: 
The whole first segement about Ray and his wife having their adventure in the big snowstorm ( and all of Ray's and his wife's very humorous remarks)and of course Tommy's delight and laughter about all of it.
