    The episode begins with co-hosts Mike Dell and Mike Wilkerson, from the auto history podcast, discussing the Saturn Car Company—a defunct American automobile manufacturer. Their conversation unfolds with enthusiasm about the history and unique aspects of Saturn, emphasizing its inception as a company intended to emulate foreign car manufacturers' success within the United States while being distinct from General Motors (GM), its parent company. Mike Dell expresses his fascination with Saturn's approach to making cars with plastic body panels, noting how this material choice helps prevent rust and dents, especially in areas prone to harsh winters. He praises the brand for their cars still looking brand new years after production due to the plastic being colored through. Mike Wilkerson reminisces about Saturn's emergence during his high school years in 1985 and his subsequent encounters with Saturn's vehicles. He highlights a particular Saturn movie, "Gung Ho," and its relevance to Saturn's innovative ideas.
