So if you're listening to this program while doing some Thanksgiving prep in the kitchen, you might want to turn it up because I am about to introduce you to a potentially life-altering trick. This is called the garlic trick. Now, if, like me, you cook with lots of garlic, then you know it can sometimes be a pain. You'd smash the clove, but you still have to peel off the skin. And it's time-consuming, and it gets your fingers really stinky. Well, your garlic nightmare is about to end.
In the small-town of Elko, ambition looks like high-heel suede booties on the floor of the auto shop at the local high school.
Brandi and Kaylee look like the Olsen twins. And they're the best auto-shop students at Elko High. The girls have a plan. Everyday out the school window, they see trucks heading up to the gold mines. Day and night. So, the girls figure, why not open a truck repair shop after they graduate?
"In Elko we've been really blessed and really lucky to actually have a good economy," Kaylee says. "We can actually have our hopes and dreams."
Nov. 23, 1936, was a good day for recorded music. Two men, an ocean apart, each stepped up to a microphone and began to play. One was a cello prodigy who had performed for the queen of Spain; the other was a guitar player in the juke joints of the Mississippi Delta. But on that day, Pablo Casals and Robert Johnson each made recordings that would change music history.

But on Nov. 23, 1936, Robert Johnson and Pablo Casals each walked into a room alone with their instruments. And on that day, each made recordings that would change music history.
