Woofcast 631: AJ Can Park In A Box
Very oddly shaped show for you guys this week. Todd took the helm 100% this week, with Chad and AJ. Skipping news this week, they spent some time talking about driving MINIs, fast, in a controlled environment. AJ was on the west coast at the BMW Driving Center in Palm Springs, Todd did a Miles Ahead event in Kansas City and Chad even took the DT Mule out for some track time. Plus Todd fills us in on why he doesn't really like the Clubman. Your patience lately has been appreciated! We have all been having crazy schedules and whatnot, keeping us for making a show for you on a consistent basis. I am working on getting us back on track and expect that to happen with the next episode! Don't forget about our sponsors when it comes time to spend money on MINI stuff. , and

Woofcast 629: Never Try to Teach a Pig to Sing
With the announcement of the MINI Electric concept this week, our Slack channel was blowing up, so we figured we had better get that on wax before we lost it! We talk about the design of the concept and our thoughts about it and electric cars overall. Then, because most of the time we can't help ourselves, we started in on marketing and how we think it's pretty ridiculous lately and not doing much to help sell cars. What do you think? Comments are open! But, seriously, talk about bad photoshop work. Look at the shadows in this week's show image. The light is coming from 3 suns, like we are on Alderon! Speaking of, did you hear about the ? 7500+ pieces and an $800 price tag.

Woofcast 627: The Countryman Crashes Well
FINALLY a new show for you guys! Full crew, almost, an a long show too! Chad updates us about MINIs on the Mack and what's happening at (hint: blue mohawk) before we get into the news. Gabe continues to profess his love for the JCW Clubman, while agreeing that the Countryman is good too. And then well all tell him he is wrong about the new MINI package that is supposed to look like Gulf livery. It just doesn't, but it's good on MINI to give us a car that isn't black, grey, white, gray or black. As of this posting, we have entered our 13th year of podcasting! And, as Todd likes to say, we don't hate each other yet!

Woofcast #585: 4 bikes, 3 MINIs
Breaking our silence! There is a very good reason for that as Todd has added a Chili Red JCW F56 to his stable. And I added another bicycle. The bulk of the show is, of course, talking about Todd’s new MINI (also has the JCW Exhaust) and how much Todd is in love with it. […]

Woofcast 575: Free football phone with every Countryman
To those of you in the United States, Happy Thanksgiving. To the rest of you every where else, have a fantastic Thursday this week. We handle news from as always, including quite a bit more Clubman news, JCW stuff and our thoughts about the new convertible. Also, we answer a group Ask Chad question, kind of, explaining the difference between a 1st generation and 2nd generation R56 and why the post LCI cars are better. If you have been around for any time, you have heard this conversation before. When you have a minute, check out of photos from the LA Auto Show by Lex Adams. The photos are fantastic and we use them as our point of reference for a bunch of stuff this week. In case you missed it, starting now until the end of the year, is offering free shipping on all orders. Starting Wednesday, is offering free shipping on all orders over $150! That’s HUGE saving from both Todd and Chad for this holiday season, so don’t miss out!
