TT - 260 She's no dummy!

1/8/2023
Joel, Robert and Tom are your hosts for Episode 260. The first episode of 2023 and it's a doozy (sp). A bit longer than usual as there is a lot going on in the world of Tesla and Elon. We discuss the final delivery numbers for 2022, spoiler alert, they are pretty good, but not great. There is a discussion about FSD...I know, I know it's enough already, but it's such a critical part of Tesla's future that we can't seem to help ourselves. We discuss the lack of female crash test dummies and the risk that poses to female drivers and passengers as a result, and a couple of companies that are working to rectify that major safety shortcoming of the auto industry. We hope you enjoy the show and please leave us a review on whatever platform you listen to us on. Show notes can be found HERE Support the Show.

TT 252 - Hey Google!

10/31/2022
One of our favorite things to do is ask google questions. This episode we might have gone a bit overboard on that. There is a discussion about Toyota and the initiation of a group to rethink it's EV strategy yet again, the third time is the charm. The Hyundai battery factory in Georgia and the usual tangent festival you've come to know and love. Apologies for Joels audio which is at times not good and at other times just bad. While Robert could not join us for the show he was able to send in a pretty amazing SC report and a media pick that is sure to delight. Enjoy the show. Notes can be found HERE Support the Show.
