    Production Hell

    Production Hell

    Since the original Roadster, Tesla has struggled to produce enough cars to meet the demand from customers. Building a car manufacturer from scratch is hard, and if there was any car to highlight that difficulty it was the popular Model 3. As Elon would say, 'Welcome to Production Hell'.

What started as good story telling quickly turned into poor research and selective arguments

What started as a praise of Tesla quickly turned into a criticism after episode 1 for the rest of the season. Bloomberg, CNBC, and many “experts”/sources that were used are known for their negative bias against the company. I was initially excited to see a well reported Australian podcast but was let down by the typical criticism and old outdated arguments against Tesla.

Absolutely fantastic!

I’m glued to this podcast. It’s the perfect balance of fast moving, and deep on detail. The pace is excellent and super well researched.

Subscribed and recommending to friends and colleagues for sure! Who knew all this back story about Tesla? And I’m a big tech fanatic!
