#1433: The Male Automotive Ego
Saturday, August 16, 2014
This week on Car Talk, Emily dared to correctly diagnose her male friend's car problem (the horror!) but did her automotive intelligence ruin a potential relationship? Elsewhere, Ted’s solution to his van’s leaky exhaust may win a prize for modern sculpture, but will it also kill his engine? Also, Linda needs to use a hair dryer to start her car in weat weather; and from the “be careful what you wish for” department, Jeff wants to get his reluctant 18-year old son to start driving or risk never getting a date. Finally, yet another philosophical theory that explains Tom and Ray: “learned ignorance.” All this and more, this week on Car Talk.
