Who knew mafia intrigue, large scale robbery, massive traffic jams and reckless endangerment could be so fun?! The Italian Job takes it all on with tongue planted firmly in cheek as Michael Caine uses Mini Coopers to make the most adorable getaway EVER.
Sid and James are joined by Steven Duckworth, a champion autocrosser who knows his front wheel drive cars for a fun talk about the original Italian Job and the capabilities of those little Minis.
Can Sid survive a podcast about a movie with cars so far out of his element that it's like being on a different planet? Can a front wheel drive car hang with the rear drive elite? Would you drive a car on the roof of a building if you had the opportunity?

Rain Man was a movie based roughly on a real person that brought attention to the challenges faced by an autistic savant. An unfortunate side effect is that the character came of as silly and led to numerous misunderstandings about autism. Oh, and it's also a great road movie about a gorgeous 1949 Buick Roadmaster and its ability to create and destroy relationships.
Sid and James are joined by Kyle Phalen, a brilliant comedian who also happens to be on the autism spectrum. Kyle talks about how this movie impacted his life and speaks very frankly about the positive and negative impact of the movie.
So is Rain Man a good or bad thing? Can a car really be the driving force (pun intended) in a relationship? Why the hell does the Cadillac Cimarron keep cropping up in our podcasts?!
