Episode 20 - Are Middle Lane Drivers Pure Road Cancer?

We’re one year old! Put on a pointy hat, grab a luke warm sausage roll, and join us for a proper baller party in the podding shed. We’ve got plenty of car news to start, then Chris questions if stanced cars deserve the hate they get, Andrew points out how manufacturers with crap EV tech are throwing money at Formula E, and we mull over the issue of middle lane drivers. Is there a time sitting in the middle lane just makes sense, what’s the best way to deal with them? We also debate the...

Review Not a Review Preview Not a Preview - The Land Cruiser

So, we did our first Review Not A Review and Andrew wants to tell you all about it. Sadly, nobodies worked out how to transmit holograms out of speakers yet so we'd love it if you popped over to YouTube for this one.

Episode 19 - Am I Entering The Motoring Menopause?

If you like hairy, middle-aged men ranting about stuff then you're going to love this episode. In our continued stance of not getting political, we focus on two topics all about politics. Andrew also tries to console Chris through an extensional crisis regarding his love for cars and there's a shocking confession during the the news segment.

Special Episode - Mustang Married 'Murica

Do you fondly remember a time when you had to sit through a friend's photo slideshow of their holiday while they rabbited on about every minute detail as if somehow you're supposed to care? No. Well, here it is in modern form anyway. Here, Chris reflects on his travels in The States where he got to drive the new Mustang on a few road-trips and also got to take a Wrangler Rubicon out wheeling in the Arizona desert.

Episode 18 - Are We Peak VAG?

As we hit Episode 18 and Men In Sheds enters adulthood, we have changed up the format in a bid to border on being entertaining. We start off with the news, asking if we are peak VAG, questioning if the VTEC really does kick in, yo, and giving the lowdown on detailing for the lazy car owner. You may want to make your way down to the local bunker as some truth bombs are well and truly dropped.

Episode 17 - America! America! America!

So, one of us has strayed a little far from the shed. Thousands of miles afar. Therefore, this is our first international episode via Skype with Andrew sweltering in Staffordshire and Chris sweating it out in Arizona. The topic? Well it's America for the past, America for the present, and America for the future, HOBVIOUSLY!

Rant n' Ride Special - Two Men Went To Mow

This is a new segment we hope to be doing more of. We get angry, you see? We get angry about cars. It's because we care. And we rant, oh how we rant. And when we rant, we like to go on a little drive to blow off some steam. This coincided with us needing to go pick up Andrew's latest vehicle - a lawn tractor. What's got our manties in a twist at the moment? Well, a few things but mainly the Fiat Fullback pickup truck which is a poor showing from the usually creative and exciting FCA.

Episode 15 - Car Finance Isn’t Freedom

We know that feeling when you look at all the hard earned your car is sucking out of your bank account and you wander by a dealer forecourt telling you a few bob a month will see you in something new. Stop right there. We explain why car finance is a trap and play a little game of “Here’s what you could’a bought” which should have you running to the classifieds ready to invest in a classic. Before we get into that though, we reminisce a little with a new segment of Backfired and flash...

Random Humbuggery - EP13 The Lost Episode

We're not ones to usually tempt fate, what with our aversion for controversy and all that. However, we thought we could swerve Lady Luck herself by skipping episode 13 and going straight to 14. Well, the universe works in strange ways and what was almost certainly the greatest podcast ever recorded turned out to be a load of useless garbage due to incorrectly set microphone levels - manipulated in no doubt by evil forces. Anyway, here's Andrew with a summary.

Episode 12 - Get f*cked Nissan!

You want the truth about evil car companies? You can't handle the truth about evil car companies! We open with the long and colourful backstory behind why people call Ford Explorers "Ford Exploders" and then Andrew is let out of his cage to say his piece on why he thinks Nissan has completely lost direction since the French got involved. Sort it out, the French! We then talk about the rather depressing news about Uber's self driving cars and discuss the cost and availability of electric...

Episode 11 - Deloreans Aren't Cool

When this podcast gets to episode 88, you're going to see some serious shizzle. Actually no! We're going to sizzle some shizzle right now, because we ain't afraid of no controversy. Deloreans, not cool, sorry not sorry. Land Rover now have 6-7 vehicles in their range. It's madness. Car insurance is set to rise and you have to be an economics expert to understand why. Motoring Misogyny is back; stop saying women can't drive, you sexist pigs. We also look at Faraday Future who seem to be...

Episode 9 - The Teabagging Incident

It's time for our first ride along of the year and this time round we're broadcasting from the both tiny and tinny inside of Andrew's JDM Jimny. We reflect back on some of the more stupid stories from our car owning past before discussing a little motoring misogyny during Car Fannery Corner. We're on a mission too, an upward assault that a mountain goat would be proud of as we head to the highest village in England to pick up some beer. To finish off, we discuss the surprising safety...

Episode 8 - A Generation Is Doomed

I know that sounds a bit bleak, but you better bloody well listen. Andrew has had his thinking flat-cap on and, like some tea sipping Nostradamus, he's made a worrying prediction. We could soon be watching a generation of cars put out to pasture when the electric revolution comes. Before that though, from outside any form of shed this time, we reflect back on the rally car engineering houses of days yonder and keep you all updated with some latest car news. Oh, plus Car Fannery Corner,...

Episode 7 - 2016, You Shall Not Be Missed

This time we're coming at ya from lazy boy like seats of Chris' Grand Cherokee, technically making this the most expensive episode we've made thus far. If that's not good enough, we're being borderline useful by going over some of the biggest automotive events of the year. We also captured our scenic journey through exotic Stoke-on-Trent too, so you can watch this one on YouTube if you want and sort of partake in what would be the most depressing open top bus tour in history. So sit thee...

Random Humbuggery - Special Snowflakes

Remember when we kept calm and carried on? What happened? A nation of stiff upper-lips and orderly queuers seems to have become tainted by a class of motorist who can't see past the end of their own bonnet. Today Andrew has reached breaking point. He's way past eye rolling, there cannot be enough tutting, and the rage induced shaking of his hands makes writing a letter impossible - only one thing left then, a quick solo rant via the medium of podcast. The message, nobody's a special...

Episode 6 - Top Gear Special

If Top Gear was a dessert, it would be a pavlova, so that begs the question, does that mean that the only fair way to describe The Grand Tour is an Eaton Mess? In this episode we tackle a subject so ingrained in car culture that we've dedicated not just the whole podcast to it but an extra half an hour. We go over the history, the memorable moments, and where we are now, while trying to mine our way down to the core of what has made the show so appealing. This episode is quite frankly the...

Episode V - Celicas ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

We're on the road this time round. Coming at you from within the cavernous confines of Andrew's new Suzuki Wagon-R RR. After a shopping list of corrections covering our misspeaking in the past, we ask ourselves, Celicas - what's going on? We also have a right old whinge about the new MINI Countryman, about how obese (and depressed) it's looking. Following that, and a healthy serving of oatcakes, we discuss the forthcoming age of the oligarchical land-yacht and if computers are going to...

Episode 4 - Citroëns Are Wierd

Look at us managing to natter on for less than an hour! For this episode we raise a question absolutely nobody is asking; are Citroëns are too weird for their own good? I mean, we like 'em, but we'd feel a proper plonker driving some of 'em in a few years. Andrew's bought a new car by the way. Can you guess what country it comes from? We also discuss a future where autonomous German cars might be programmed to be just as arrogant as their owners and inappropriate ways to euthanise a...

Episode 3 - Proper Now

We're proper now! This time round, we're asking all the important questions like, are we due a secondhand supercar glut, and does owning a Capri always make you look like a rapist? Dawson's also regales us with tales of a few cars he's spotted in the area, one of which is so interesting he forgets what it is mid-recording. Oh, and it's been five minutes since Porsche last told us they make proper hairy bottomed driver's cars. They do, ya know? Stop laughing.

Episode 2.017643 BETA Release

Crikey! Look at us go. Episode 2 already. We've barely had time to get kettle on. We've found time though - of course we've found time! This time round we finish up going on about our self-important-selves by trying to quickly go over the cars of our past, present, and (hopefully) future. It's harder than you think. We've also made a little change to our format too with tea breaks included for your convenience - a-thankyou-very-much.
