#2136: Thirty Four Years of Lousy Marital Advice

Sep 04, 2021
Believe it or not, Car Talk is celebrating its 34th Anniversary on NPR. We know we should mark the occasion with a sincere apology for wasting all those hours, but instead, we’re celebrating with a series of special shows featuring some of our all-time favorite calls. This week’s theme: Relationships! Can lonely guy Chris use his car to meet a woman? Did Ellen really wreck her husband’s Explorer by accidentally filling it with diesel? Should Doug buy a manual shift car so his messy wife can’t drive it? Did Kim or her husband make the more foolish car purchase? And what happens to a radio show host who implies his wife looks like a truck? All this, and more great moments, this week on The Best of Car Talk.

Show Open Topic

Ray muses on why a show about fixing cars so regularly broke down into relationship discussions.
