For the record, this is NOT The Ricker's car. He doesn't let photos of it appear online for licensing reasons. Also he said something about it stealing the car's soul? 
All aboard! It's Monday night, and the NintenDownload X-press! is pulling into your station for another nighttime blast of digital-only X-citement! This week we get back into the deep topic of this week's releases for WiiWare and DSiWare. We're also joined by a very special guest, it's Rick "The Ricker" Petersen, the world's foremost authority and record holder in multiple open-wheel racing disciplines! And we've got a new feature that involves you, the listener! So listen in once more with your faithful conductor, Jeff Gerstmann! Hey! That's me!!!! 
 
Ways to listen: 
 
iTunes: HERE (be sure to subscribe listening from this page is an unreliable way to get the latest ishstallment) 
RSS: HERE 
MP3: HERE (you'll want to right-click on this one to save it, but it's 2011 and I hopefully don't need to tell you that anymore)
 
I'm off to Vegas! I'd better start packing, and you know I'll be asking the biggest developers in video games about Nintendo's upcoming eShop and how it impacts their business!

My goodness, I haven't laughed so hard in a long time. That Rick guy is like Robin Williams but funny. So I guess he's nothing like Robin Williams. But anyways, not many people can keep up with Jeff in the humor department. Hope he returns sometime.
