The esteemed Mr. Lavrinc joins us for Episode #126 of the Autoblog Podcast, and Dan shows up late, but we still pack in an hour and a half of goodness. Starting with the Autoblog Garage kicks off a discussion about diesel and then electric vehicles and technology. The GM/Fiat/Chrysler dealings are once again kicked around for quite a while, with a wide ranging discussion of what Fiat platforms might be coming, and how GM's shrinkage strikes us. We move on to the death of Knight Rider, lamenting the loss of Nunez's liveblog, before we split opinions on Cash for Clunkers and finish with some letters. Thanks for hanging in for the full hour and a half, please keep your feedback rolling in to podcast at autoblog dot com.

      I'll be the first to say I'm a bit disgruntled by the way you were introduced. It sounded like the other two guys shook you to a wakened state, and then you "ummed" your way around. I agree with almost everything you say, but the lack of pep behind any of your statements left me empty. Once again, I like you but would love some enthusiasm from you. I feel like an ass, but in my humble opinion, you should take some cues from Joe Rogan and Adam Corolla and you'd be suitable to me. But I'm nobody and your disposition is your key, so your whiny attitude was more tone than subject.

      Keep it real.

        Well, I missed our start time and struggled to set up my gear quickly and hop on the 'cast. Not my finest hour of punditry, but, you know, we do it because we love it, and I'm glad that you guys care enough to listen and offer criticism.

        I'll try to whine less - heh - how's bitching? Carping? Complaning? Generally being curmudgeonly?

      Um, so um , who um is the guy that um, says..........UMMMM alot? You know the guy that hasn't been on since last fall? Dan I dig the show and mirror many of your sentimates! I like the guy who wrote in proclaiming you all domestic car fan boys. Those are the type of people who are just as biased from the other side!!

      You know.

      If Dan could whine a bit more, jesus. Its not like anybody notices his automotive
      immaturity between all of "maaan *cough* umm." I think he is a likable person, but
      a terrible radio 'personality' if you can even imagine him as one.

      You guys should get Adam Corolla on the show. He's a car nut, he may not have
      wikipedia'd as many things as Dan but he is much more tolerable.

        I guess I came across as mean. Or confrontational. Or something. It wasn't intentional. I'm just saying that these guys try pretty hard to entertain the Autoblog readers, but of course it's not gonna be perfection-which sounded like what you were expecting.

        Hey, I'll be the first to admit that I'm no radio personality. I'm a video editor/recording engineer by day, blog poster by night. What exactly was I whining about?

        It is my opinion obviously and I never said the podcast was overall bombing, I think that radio sound is important, I even said I liked the guy, so if you are his brother or boyfriend, get over yourself, why do you rave about how I'm wrong ftaglane?
