Episode 16 starts by introducing this weeks guest Nick Saporito joining us from GM Inside News. Nick kicked us off by telling us a little about himself and how he came to be the managing editor. I then for a moment, attempted to relive my experience driving the Corvette ZR1 which I had the opportunity to drive the day before. We move along to the major news of the week segment. This week included-
