In the midwestern tradition Lynn Rossetto Casper, discusses food and cooking with love. I like the road food section as well as the experts she invites. I especially like her sweet attitude.
The Splendid Table is a one-hour culinary, culture, and lifestyle program that celebrates food and its ability to touch the lives and feed the souls of everyone. Each week, The Splendid Table tours new culinary territory, from the vineyards of Provence to the city-street diners of Philadelphia. While doing so, host Lynne Rossetto Kasper uncovers hidden delights, and offers her modern take on getting food to the "splendid table" with cooking tips, recipes, and her own personal advice.
"stump the chef!"
Great couple of goof ball brothers! Very amusing and comedic, and also serious in their manners to solve everyday auto mechanic issues. It's amazing to hear their knowledge, and for the weekend mechanic, many times the substance can be taken back to your own garage. Weekly puzzlers keep you itching for the next issue to find out the answer! Also look forward to the 'Stump-the-chump' segment to see if they've solved a past mechanical puzzler from a caller.
Even if your not mechanicly inclined or intrigued, this is definitly a program to keep all ages in stitches!
One of NPR's most popular programs, Car Talk lets listeners (2.3 million of them) call in with their car woes while the hosts dish out their wit and know-how. At the end of each hour, 2 of 2 things are guaranteed to happen: you'll learn something about your motor vehicle and you'll have a belly laugh. Get the latest issue or subscribe!
"Whoo hoo! It's CD burnable."
This week, one of the guy's sons gets even with Dad on the air, for ruining his "street cred."
Each week, listeners call in with their car woes and brothers in grime Tom and Ray Magliozzi dish out their wit and know-how. Get the latest issue or subscribe, and hear an interview with Tom and Ray.
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).
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.
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.
"One of the BEST!"
This week, a very memorable Stump the Chumps.
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.
So, what's here? Morley Safer, displaying a downright embarassing obsession with his Peugeot. Space shuttle astronaut John Grunsfeld, who's calling from Hawaii. (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.
We know, we know, Best of Car Talk is probably Webster's working definition for "oxymoron". But you might enjoy some of these highlights from our first eight years of radio shows. Hear some callers who really broke us up, including "Eggs Prestone", "The Day Ole Moses Blew Lunch", and "Bad Hair Days".
Car Talk is a radio talk show broadcast weekly throughout the United States and elsewhere. Its subjects are automobiles and repair, and it often takes humorous turns. The hosts of Car Talk are brothers Tom and Ray Magliozzi.
Michael Gelb explains what neuroplasticity means, and provides some low cost ways (including optimism!) to improve our brain power and resilience, and possibly prevent Alzheimer’s and other forms of dementia. He describes the benefits of challenging the brain to do something new, and other brain-enhancing activities, including meditation, wine in moderation, and naps!
This week on Car Talk, you'd think twin brothers working in the same garage would have the same auto-diagnostic skills set, right? Well, Becky in Dallas is learning the hard way that it ain't necessarily so, after letting the wrong twin get his hands on her Lexus.
This week The Splendid Table looks at where Buddhism and the restaurant kitchen meet, with Annie Somerville, chef of the award-winning vegetarian restaurant Greens in San Francisco. Annie has almost single-handedly changed the face of vegetarian food in this country. Jane and Michael Stern have followed their noses to Otto's, a smokehouse in Portland, Oregon. The Splendid Table gadget tester Dorie Greenspan tells us how to use chips, chunks, and planks to get smokehouse flavor from our grills.
This week on Car Talk, we introduce a new word, courtesy of The Washington Post. It's "bozone,” and it's defined as the protective layer around stupid people that keeps them that way. You'll hear bozone in full effect, as Tom and Ray try to diagnose a Ford with a saggy accelerator, a CRX that sounds like a marching band rolling down the highway, and a Jeep that stalls when you shift gears.
This week on Car Talk, Amy's head is spinning because her speedometer needle won't stop whizzing around in circles. Is a well-aimed rock her only hope of making it stop? Elsewhere, Suzanne's husband loves his vintage Ford Model A, but its gas fumes are destroying brain cells by the thousands.
This week on Car Talk, Tommy's life-long aversion to work meets its match in the U.S. Army, and his old pal Sgt. McNeely. But, little did Tommy know that his ill-fated attempt to avoid target practice would one day become official government policy in the U.K.
It’s our get-ready-for-the-big-feast broadcast with best-selling author Mollie Katzen, author of The Heart of the Plate. Mollie takes on the vegetarian feast while Food & Wine’s Ray Isle deals with the wine, Mexican chef Pati Jinich, author of Pati’s Mexican Table, bring us her Mexican way with a turkey (swaddled in banana leaf), and Cheryl Day of Back in the Day Bakery in Savannah, Ga., covers the pies.
This week on Car Talk, Kate is desperate to get rid of her Chevy Cavalier, but her husband has vowed to keep it running for another 150,000 miles. Can Tom and Ray help her escape, and will it involve Uncle Vinny and a book of matches?
It's our annual get-ready–for-the-feast broadcast with writer and comedian Mo Rocca; journalist Alex Witchel, author of All Gone: A Memoir of My Mother’s Dementia. With Refreshments; and David Leite, of Leite’s Culinaria, takes on the carving knife.
This week on Car Talk, Wendall's Bronco burst into flames and was burnt to crisp, right after a 200-mile drive. Was it electrical? Fuel? A spouse holding an insurance policy? Elsewhere, Barry is hoping to find true love by fixing his co-worker's windshield wipers, and avoiding her jealous boyfriend; Donna needs a gracious way to tell her husband his theories about keeping her gas tank full are "boooooguuss"; and Deborah's lurching efforts to learn to drive a stick shift aren't being made any easier by her Civic's loud whine.
This week Seattle chef Tom Douglas joins us for another installment of The Key 3. His book is The Dahlia Bakery Cookbook. Award-winning photographer Penny De Los Santos talks about what she really captures when she snaps a food photo. And we talk to Todd Selby about his unusual book, Edible Selby.
This week on Car Talk, after Jody's mechanics failed to fix her Honda, she's considering an alternative treatment--acupuncture. So, where is an Accord's ch'i? Hopefully, not in the tires. Elsewhere, Steve promised his wife he'd fix her Volvo, but after sneaking off to three different mechanics, he still can't figure out the problem.
This week it’s surprising cooking techniques from Andrew Schloss, author of Cooking Slow, we have a conversation with Food & Wine magazine’s Ray Isle about protecting America’s historic grapevines, and we talk to New York Times columnist David Tanis about his book One Good Dish.
This week on Car Talk, Sharon's been experiencing a series of bad hair days when she drives long distances. Unfortunately, she couldn't get through to "Follicle Talk," so she's turned to Tom and Ray. Can they stop laughing long enough to offer any useful advice?
