    Would you consider the audio edition of Car Talk, A Sticky Situation, May 18, 2013 to be better than the print version?

    I'm never in front of a radio when these air originally - so this is a great format - but if the names started out YYYYMMDD - then the name of the episode - they would be much easier to "manage"

    Car Talk Fact: 98 percent of misinformation in the world comes from fathers (the other 2 percent comes from us). Throughout history, when a child asks a father a question, the father feels he must give the child an answer. Even if he doesn't know what the answer is (which, as we said, is the case 98 percent of the time).

    This brand-new collection rounds up some of our all-time favorite calls about animals and cars -- like Sidney, whose lunch disappeared in the air vents (and then died there!); Richard and his goat problem; and the dog who likes to ride on top of the truck cab. We've also included the "Andy Letter," possibly the greatest letter ever received at Car Talk Plaza, along with the phone call that precipitated it -- a call about electric brakes on a cattle trailer.

    Why is it that so many of our calls start out talking about, say, differentials or power steering, but wind up discussing men, women, devious ploys of deception, and power trips? Simple. To quote our producer, Dougie Berman: "A car is just a big inanimate object through which we reveal ourselves and our true personalities. Tangled up with cars are the issues of money, power, independence, self-image, confidence, generosity, and honesty, just to name a few." We couldn't have said it better, if at all.

    Fresh out of the Dewey, Cheetham, and Howe audio dumpster, our Second Best of Car Talk features some of the least-lousy calls we've ever aired! Seriously, we've had some pretty darned wacko calls, from "Clinton Sends Vowels to Bosnia" to "Gail, the Toll-gate Fugitive", and, our personal favorite, the tale of our German pal Max and his little Schnauzer.

(Well, 700 miles over Hawaii, actually.) And, there's one of our personal all-time favorite callers, our pal Dave from Bemidji, sharing the sordid tale of his journey to Alaska.

Was it coincidence, or was Barry's truck an unwitting arsonist?Farther South, things are a little less exciting for Rick in Florida. His PT Cruiser's explosions are only taking place under the hood. Also, have you ever heard of a Himalayan Exhaust Transfusion? Neither have we, but it might be a great way to start a dead car on a cold day. Or, it could just be a wacko theory.

Elsewhere, Evan’s son stuffed a golf ball into her car’s exhaust, and she worried it may land a hole-in-one right in the middle of her engine; Christine can’t evict a colony of ants living in her car’s headliner; and Todd’s noisy truck gives Tom a chance to re-live his Army days with the long-suffering Sgt.

Elsewhere, Ed’s having trouble shifting his car out of Park, and his solution may give his insurance company an ulcer; and, Tom and Ray try to stop Steven’s mirrors from twitching before he drives into a ditch. Also, how one student’s GPA plummeted after she listened to a single episode of Car Talk; and in an effort to improve inter-species communication, Tom and Ray translate mechanics’ grunts into English. All this and lots more, this week on Car Talk.
