    Click & Clack, the Mariatzi Brothers, both have Engineering degrees from MIT.
Their show, "Car Talk", is one of THE most popular shows on National Public
Radio.  Because of the very entertaining nature of the show, many people listen to
it, picking up, by osmosis, as it were, knowledge about cars (& their repair &
maintenance, & what COULD that strange noise be?) that they would otherwise have
no clue about.  Click & Clack have many other interests in life, besides fixing
cars, such as a facination with people's names, & odd history bits.  Check with
you local NPR station, they are sure to carry "Car Talk" (usually on Sat. morning,
then again sometime on Sunday), it is a real hoot!  One of the few shows on NPR
which I try not to miss (and I'm not what you would call "mechanically oriented").
