05.12.23 (MP3): Why Are Lousy New Cars Ruining the Used-Car Market, When AM Becomes Pirate Radio (We’ll All Be Pirates), Truckers & Earthquakes in CA, Pasadena’s Fail Patrol, + James Bondses, Right to Repair, & an HKS EVC
When the gearheads get enthusiastic, the geeks get going: the new-car connectivity albatross and its threat to AM (as well as your seat heaters), why new cars and their general state of suck is making a mess of the used-car market, and some F!ed up fun from Kalifornistan, where the police can’t chase you and the earth is swallowing up off-roaders. Then it’s turbos, bugeye WRXs, EVCs, own-versus-rent and right-to-repair, and a breakdown of the better James Bonds (and why Remington Steele’s/Pierce Brosnahanan’s “November Man” could have been perfect).
More for you: DJ Contact (w/ DJ Cookie Dough), Amon Tobin (with a mashup), Air (#becauseweird), and Source Direct (#becausetractor). Also, Umberto from GRC, The Uhhs, jerkles and unicorn skulls.
