    Car Talk is a show on NPR
    and SiriusXM Public Radio is just the satellite version of NPR (pretty much all national shows that NPR has without any of the regional shows)

    It's not very public of NPR if they don't offer their channel to everyone...

    Free-to-all-receivers would be incredible... There are a ton of expired Sirius radios out there... That's a lot of audience.

    Car Talk is a seperate entity. It's not JUST run by NPR. It's also been on PRI, and whoever else wants to buy it.

    Car Talk isn't an NPR Production. It's one of few licences that are allowed outside of the NPR Domain. (CarTalk made money by being featured in the movie "cars")

    I used to run an IRC chat forum, and we were trying to get an official listing from cartalk.
