Perhaps I should explain that "Car Talk" is a U.S. National Public Radio (NPR) show, available as a podcast. It is a call-in show. People call in and describe problems they are having with their car, and Tom and Ray try to figure out what's wrong.

Except that Tom and Ray crack jokes and tease the people who call in (in a nice way), and laugh loudly at their own jokes. It's really about their personalities. 

Regular listeners get to love their stock jokes, puns, and catchphrases. They always close by saying "Well, you've done it again! You've wasted another perfectly good hour listening to Car Talk."

You can use Stitcher to aggregate all your favorite podcasts in one place and then listen them on PC or smartphone.

"Car Talk," despite the fact that in the U.S. many of us are still sad about the recent death of Tom Magliozzi. I have no idea whether a non-native speaker could follow this, or would find it hopelessly difficult.
