    Tonight is Tuesday September 20, 2022.     Sadly they can't all be fun and games… tonight's C&C is a heavy one.  We've lost some of our family since we were all together last.  Today our friends were laid to rest so we'll be discussing the sad and tragic events that occurred on Angeles Crest Highway last Friday September 16, 2022.  Tonight we remember and celebrate Sonny and Radja Putro.     J takes us through it all thoughtfully with a heavy heart.  For all the folks who were there and helped out at the scene, we must thank you.  J went through what folks were feeling at the ranch afterwards.  They had no idea that the story had been picked up by the media due to the lack of mobile service up at Newcomb's.  The level of disinformation in some of those stories is astounding, and J carefully corrects some of these narratives.  They then discussed the funeral services and how the Putro family will always be in our hearts.  One of the beautiful things about our little show is that it was born out of community, and the support of that community is a wonderful thing, for the good times, the bad, and the tragic.  THANK YOU for being with us Tonight

They go into Marconi racing history, and how philanthropy has always intertwined. He then talks about his history with Volkswagen and some of the crazy tales they have led him to. Personality-wise, John bridges the gap between cars and comedy. But the champion mindset comes from upbringing and it's very clear how he has found the successes he has. Monique runs the museum and is the third generation Marconi to do so. These guys ROCK! Come on out Saturday to Marconi Auto Museum for an awesome show and coms exciting announcements.

We learn how and why he started his multiple podcasts... "Let There Be Talk" & ‘the grail' that focuses on craftspeople who make stuff. Dean is on another arena tour with Bill Burr currently and having a ball. And he's a car guy too! Learning about all the best shit from James Bond, Dean ended up becoming a Porsche guy by way of Ferrari, Mopar and Cadillacs. This episode is a phenomenal example of how folks in the comedy world and folks in the car enthusiast world are so tightly connected. Conversation then moved to Gertrude, which a fan gave to Dean and we learn the story. Talk then moves to Late Night, and Dean shares his mutual love for Letterman and Conan and tells the story of his first appearance. After he and Gertie leave, J and Nicole let us know about the amazing LIVE fundraiser event coming up at the Marconi on September 3rd. Sponsor a table and join in on the fun!

A sweet Adventurine Green @Porsche #992 #911 #Turbo S! Our heroes celebrate the idea of being able to drive to an event, take part in said event, then drive home from the event, all in one car! While born in Stuttgart, Reggie is grateful for all of the amazing opportunities the United States have given him. One of those opportunities is the idea of making an electric, or bad ass Mad Max car out of a Porsche 928. This might actually be a good idea! Segueing to Porsche's Mission R racecar, a short development leads to madness on the track, the insane sounds they are starting to make and speeds they are starting to hit. After a LOT of cars, we accidentally switch to the fun project that was JASH. To this day he's still grateful Sarah Silverman used to bring him edibles. Finally moving to the elephant in the room... the impending end of Late Late Show. We hear Reggie's point of view before J & Mike try to illuminate just how crazy the next year will be will be for him. Luckily Reggie goes with the flow. We are so excited Reggie will be part of the fundraiser event at the Marconi on September 3rd. Reggie hits his hard out but the show continues! We finish with Bikram yoga on East Coast Feed and some Viewer Mail, Letterman Podcast talk and Good Vibes Breakfast etiquette. Let's all keep it classy... in real life AND social media. #THANKYOU
