Daily Podcast: Always There When You Need It

daily podcast always there when you need it

Sorry for the late post, Justin. My daughter's musical education demanded an emergency trip the Bundus to secure a larger violin from the only gray-haired man I've ever seen with a Beatles-style (a.k.a. bowl) haircut. Stepping out of the Volvo S80– a press car that my wife had scratched only hours before while choking on a mint in an underground parking garage– I noticed that the Bee Gees-era Chevrolet Caprice parked adjacent was adorned with a sticker: "RI State Troopers. Always there when you need them." I had to laugh. I mean, you pay a "donation" to a "benevolent fund" (how mafia is that) and you get this sticker that asks the cop not ticket you 'cause you reached into your pocket when a highly paid telemarketer ignored the national Do Not Call list to tell you how many police officers died so that some meths-crazed loser wouldn't interrupt the crucial last five minutes of Iron Chef America– like he just did. I say, if you're that worried, drive a Volvo S80. If ever a car discouraged rapid progress, this is it. In fact, the Caprice driver would have LOVED the S80; same floaty drifty dynamics, touchy brakes, unsupportive seats, slow and complaining engine and family-friendly packaging. In fact, it's the missing link! Anyway, I digress. Here's the podcast.

    Perhaps I missed this, if so, I apologize in advance. Is it possible to create an RSS of just the podcast so I can download them automatically with my podcast software? Thanks!

    I've got no idea, but I'm sure Farago will talk to the tech people.

    You should get this on iTunes store (for free). A good user rating over there will spread TTAC far and wide and drive traffic to your main site.
