Massimo Covello ,

Devoted listener

I have been a listener since episode #2, I would like to say Ryan does an excellent job week in and week out no matter what. His passion for Tesla is obvious and comes out in every single episode. He covers the entire week in Tesla news thoroughly and is extremely genuine. Give his podcast a shot you'll love it

DustinO from Gesto ,

Truly devoted Tesla fan and all around good guy!

I listen every week to Ryan's podcast. His thoughtful and caring personality comes through as he presents his thoughts on the Tesla news of the week and shares some of his personal stories . I hope you get your Model 3 soon!
