    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!

    Overall

    They do know their stuff, and they can be funny, but after 18 months, the jokes are old, and I am always amused that anyone would telephone when their car needs repairs rather than fix it. Unusual (female) name spelling, pretending not to remember each week what the puzzler is.... it's just not funny enough. If it was on the radio I might listen, but I am no going to pay for it any longer. Pikov Andropv is funny the first 10 times but not the second 100....

    The Next Big Thing may actually resemble a city or town near you: listeners find it a fascinating place to visit, full of little-known street corners, memorable characters, lively music, and original comedy. It's a program full of unusual sounds and memorable voices; a program in which well-known artists like Stanley Tucci and Suzanne Vega casually rub shoulders with subway strap hangers, park bench philosophers, street-corner humorists, and kids on the local basketball court.

    Overall

    I find that this programme is almost always worth a listen. It is less formulaic than TAL, and the willingness to cover multiple themes including music and very small vignettes makes it compulsory listening. TAL and NBT are both good and appeal to the same audience. But sure, TAL will be more likely to make you think about serious issues, whereas NBT is a little more entertainment. And that is no bad thing at all. I like and listen to both !
