Find out what kind of insane powerplant was crammed into the back of a MINI in an attempt to deliver better performance. You won’t believe your ears when you hear how much better chicken feathers, yes, chicken feathers are at storing energy than some much more expensive and higher-tech options. Enjoy all of these exciting stories and more plus RoAb first-timer Nina Beckhardt of The Naming Group is our special guest this week. The panel picks her brain about the controversial Chevrolet Sonic and a number of other name-related topics. Enjoy RoundAbout #72, the “Better Mousetrap” episode.
