330: The Day Meat Fell from The Sky: A Halloween Special

Friday, October 24, 2014

This week, for Halloween, we’re bringing you a scary story. On March 3rd, 1876, large chunks of red meat fell from the sky for a period of several minutes, covering land the size of a football field near Olympia Springs, Kentucky. The cause of the Kentucky Meat Shower remains a mystery to this day, so we’ll speak to experts and scientists to find out what could have caused this strange historical event. We’ll find out all about wine savers from gadget guru Lisa McManus, and we’ll speak with food writer Adam Gopnik about scary foods. Then we’ll head into the test kitchen to learn how to make perfect cherry crisp in a skillet. And of course, we’ll be taking your calls to answer all of your cooking questions. www.americastestkitchen.com/radio

#1442: Door Tied Shut

Saturday, October 18, 2014

This week on Car Talk, Melissa’s driver’s door wouldn’t stay shut. So she ran to the nearest body shop, right? Um, no—she tied the door to the seat, and has been climbing in through the passenger seat for the last several weeks. Is it time for a Car Talk Cheapskate Intervention? Elsewhere, Colleen’s Dad told her she couldn’t drive his car because he had to break in its new brakes. Was this really a mechanic’s order, or could it be Dad’s way of telling Colleen he thinks she’s a lousy driver? Also, will a flush remove the debris that might be the only thing keeping Reed’s transmission from falling apart? And, if Katie thinks she has gas that’s too old for her cheap camp stove, why on earth is she considering dumping it into her $20,000 car? All this, and lots more, this week on Car Talk.
