      Possibly my favorite podcast yet!

      Dan at the helm channeling Terry Gross with Fresh Air meets Auto Blog, truly insightful, long form interview.

      BTW... the YUGO is a lasting joke 40% based on quality and 60% based on the name. That's it. You guys were over thinking it.

      Also, the R Class rulz!

        Terry Gross? Wow, I'm flattered, but no. She's fantastic at what she does, I'm not. Counting the ums and uhhs now.

      Seriously. Your best podcast ever. Sorry it took this long for me to listen to it. Dr. Vuic was terrific. Very insightful. I have a degree in Russian and East European Studies. The good professor makes me proud!

      Great work. Bring him back!
