    its about cars but alot of the listeners just listen cause its entertaining. they help people who dont know cars, fix their cars, and dont stop telling jokes throughout the whole show, they have a puzzler segment where they ask a puzzler, and once it was mathematical and the puzzler was based on a story where a trucker found the 1/4th point on a circle with only pure geometry
