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
