High Speed Stuff Wrap-up: Movie Cars (Listener Mail Edition) and The World's Most Dangerous Roads

Listen to High Speed Stuff on iTunes

I'd really love to have the luxury of time today to write a lot about what Ben and I have been up to on our High Speed Stuff podcast over the past week; however, since we're approaching a holiday weekend, let's get right to it.

On Tuesday, Ben and I dove back into the world of notable movie cars. But this time, it was all up to you to provide the content. And let me tell you...everyone who took the time to write in had some fantastic suggestions. We simply couldn't believe the great listener response! From the very first day that our movie car episode aired, we were flooded with listener mail (which we love to receive, by the way), and we did our best to compile your efforts into one, hopefully entertaining, episode. In fact, in Tuesday's release, we read every single e-mail that we received on the topic. So if you sent in a list of your favorite movie cars, you'll certainly want to listen to this one.

Now, we all know that there are plenty of dangerous roads out there. In fact, I'd be willing to bet that you can think of a few examples in your own home town, right? I know I can. But on Thursday, Ben and I had a discussion about several roads that have earned a reputation as being among the world's most dangerous. So, what exactly does it take to qualify as one of the world's most dangerous roads? Well, without giving too much away, I can tell you that it doesn't always involve the same elements. In other words, what makes one road dangerous isn't necessarily the same reason the next road also ranks. And although some of the roads we mention do traverse a lot of beautiful terrain, these definitely aren't your typical scenic roads. Listen in on this episode to find out exactly what I mean by that.

So anyway, that's what's happening on the High Speed Stuff podcast this week. If you'd like, you can surf over to iTunes and give it a listen right now. And, as always, it's free. Just don't forget while you're there to take the opportunity to browse through some of our older episodes and give us a little feedback. You can also let us know what you think in the comment section below, or if you'd rather send us an e-mail, you can do that, too. Ben always reads the address at the end of each podcast.

Oh, and by the way, if you haven't already found this on your own...there's a new iTunes Podcast Episode of the Day Twitter feed that you may want to check out, too.
