Woofcast #133
February 12, 2007
Duration: 49:48

It’s the Gabe Bridger show. First, he wants to make sure all y’all know who we are, then he talked about his time in the R56.
Don’t worry, db does wear pants while podcasting. Really. No, really, I do! I swear.
Don’t forget to check out all of the R56 coverage over at Motoringfile, including another audio review that will be going up on Tuesday.

Robert Reviews the R56 Cooper
April 20, 2007
Duration: 9:47

Robert’s JCW MINI is in for some warranty repair, so he gets an R56 Cooper as a loaner!
He has a great time driving it and managed to put quite a bit of kilometers on it.
Awesome review. Definitely worth checking out, especially if you are looking at an R56 Cooper!

Woofcast #375
April 11, 2011
Duration: 42:54

Once upon a time there was a blog post. A blog post extolling the virtues of the Fiat 500 over the MINI Cooper.
Then 1 day, 3 fine lads heard about this blog post. And they came to defend their champion. As did 75 of you.
That’s right, your 3 favorite MINI Cooper fan boys doing what we do best for 42 minutes and 54 seconds. And then some.
