Hi there! Remember that podcast we did a few weeks back? Well, we’re back with more.

There’s also more to come.

In this episode, you can hear our velvet voices opine on high gas prices, the new Acura Integra, Acura’s SUV lineup, the lack of a Subaru WRX STI, and the best cars of 1997. There are no discussions of cat vomit this time, sadly, since our little furballs (Posky and I have cats, not sure if Mr. Guy is also a pet owner) were on their best behavior.

Poorly yet humorously timed kitty expulsions aside, we hope you’ll find effort number two to be a bit more polished — yours truly dusted off his podcast mic this time around. Overall, it’s still a work in progress, so don’t judge us too harshly, but you know how to comment below with reasonable feedback. Feel free to also join in the discussion about the podcast topics, of course.

One housekeeping note: We’re trying to make the podcast available across as many platforms as possible, but some platforms (cough AppleSpotifyPandora cough) are a bit, um, slow, to onboard new ‘casts. It may be some time before we’re on those services, but we’re available elsewhere.

Download it directly right here. For those who want to skip around by segment, the transition from one to two happens around 13:20 and the second transition occurs around 37 minutes in.

Thanks for reading — and now, listening.

UPDATE: I am aware the link was broken. Should be fixed now. Thanks!

    hopefully gas continues to climb. Fewer people will be able to drive making the roads nicer for those that can.

      fewer cars is good for all, no?

        When the price of gas crowds out other expenditures, the economy suffers, with the people who are on the lowest end of the income scale being impacted the most.

          RE “lowest end of the income scale ”
          Yeah. But they are the ones that voted for good ole joe from scranton.

          I’m sure the guy 81 million voted for is looking out for them and won’t let him down. And if he does? Meh. Like when an unvacinated person dies from Covid, right? They made their decisions.

        We are Americans and it is our God given right to drive full size crew cab V-8 4 x 4 pickups and suvs. We should not pay more than $2 a gallon and it is the fault of Biden and all those commie liberal Democrats. It is our right to cheap gas and large V-8 powered trucks and if we have to fight a war to secure our energy we can always send out those less fortunate to fight our wars to maintain our cheap fuel. Do unto others before they do unto you. Merica.

          Nope, not your God Given right to drive anything nor my responsibility to pay for it if you can’t. You want to take a giant vehicle to work? The bus awaits!

          And yes, we know…nobody cares about folks getting shipped off to war…20 years of data to confirm that. Heck when I went the first time some of the antiwar left’s finest threw stuff at us and called us baby killers. You don’t care…we know lol. I don’t care that you can’t afford what you could a couple of years ago.

          Glad we have an understanding

            @Art–So did you serve in Vietnam? A war we should have not ever been in and a war in which the protesters blamed those who served and not most of the politicians that got us into it. It is a disgrace how we treated Vietnam Vets. If you didn’t get my sarcasm I am sorry but that was what it was. We all our responsible for our own decisions.

            I’m just being a pill Jeff. Tired of certain commenters on this site and throwing their BS back at them.

            No, I am an Iraq/Afghanistan guy. In the early days of the first one some of them were up to those same tricks. Mostly braindead college students likely.

            You would have thought everyone would have learned a few lessons from Vietnam though. Ah well…maybe next time.

            @Art–Seems we never learn. Vietnam was a divisive war.

    As long as we participate in the OIL COMMODITIES MARKET we will forever be beholden to foreign powers and BIG OIL’s market manipulation by SPECULATION.

    No amount us US drilling will solve it
    No reserves release will solve it
    No new pipelines will solve it

    It is a commodity market .. price spikes based on speculation buying and selling control the price.. not quantity. Oil crashed 2021.. yet I still paid 3$/gal for premium and 5$/gal for road deisel

    One good thing from the higher price.
    People will re examine their need for a monster pig up truck.

      Or those that can afford them will have more room to drive them without all of those old Buicks and W Bodies clogging up the road with their check engine lights glowing like a christmas tree

      Agree especially if they don’t need one. It is different for those who need a large truck for their business but different for those who are making a statement with one and then complain about the price of gasoline or diesel. Just accept responsibility for your choice. I don’t think large trucks will go away but fewer of them would be good. Large trucks do serve a purpose but not everyone needs one.
