Welcome, friends.

Ben loves podcasts, but he has a problem. When he tries to listen to one podcast in particular, his car stereo completely breaks. This week, Super Tech Support takes on one of its strangest cases—Roman Mars versus a 2016 Mazda sedan.

Tim says: "One of my favorite bands of the past few years is The Horse-Eyed Men from Providence. They describe themselves as 'original disgruntled Americana and country,' which does put you in the ballpark. But what I find unique about them is that so many bands who try to balance darkness, weirdness, and humor turn into unknowable caricatures, whereas Horse-Eyed men have a base coat of sweetness and warmth.

They recently put out an album called The Uncanny Valleywhich is lovely and wanders into strange spaces, but at the moment I’m especially obsessed with their recent Jalopy Records 7-inch.  Check out the song 'Hired Hand', a gorgeous, vocal-only version of one of their older songs…and it’s followed by the perfect, early-70s-style 'Running on Empty.' Enjoy!"
Reply All Intern Christina Djossa says: "I've been experimenting with different flours, and this week is almond flour week. I baked almond flour pancakes and bread, but this honey vanilla almond cake recipe from Serious Eats is the fluffiest delight. Eating it is like being under a warm blanket on a cold night. What's also great about this cake is its versatilityyou can use egg or milk alternatives of your liking. Just writing this makes me wanna bake more tonight."  
Alex says: "So in this week’s show, we made a bunch of podcasts to help us troubleshoot a malfunctioning car stereo. There was one podcast we made that didn’t end up in the episode because of pacing, and I have to tell you, it breaks my heart, because it might be my favorite episode we made. It’s hosted by Heavyweight producer Kalila Holt and it’s called {Blank} + {Blank} = FUN and it’s about what two things, when put together, are fun. It’s about 3 minutes long, and unbelievably funny. Kalila’s delivery is so incredible, her observations are amazing, and everything about it just cracks me up. Listen here!"

Aaron Reiss, associate producer on Every Little Thing, says: "I don't know much about Danny Ocean except that he has been releasing amazing songs at an amazingly slow place for the last year or so. Just recently, he finally came out with his first full length record: 54+1. It features a bunch of the songs he's already released and some great new ones. It is very groovy, very lively, and a really fun refresher for my high school Spanish. To start, I recommend 'Me Rehúso' and 'Cuando Me Acerco A Ti' and 'Vuelve.' "

Gimlet Director of Business Development Julia Kaplan says: "Five-year old Azka got to make her own podcast at WBEZ thanks to the Make-A-Wish Foundation. It’s adorable and her wish is for as many people as possible to listen. So, please check it out."
