Customer Reviews

Glenn M (UK) ,

Great podcast, great enthusiasm

Having bought my Model 3 I found myself swept away with the Tesla movement. In a world of conflict and climate crisis its nice to buy into a project aimed at creating a more hopeful future, and Ryan’s podcast keeps me nicely up to date.

The podcast is great, a real easy listen full of info and news. He knows his subject and delivers with passion! What a great guy to devote his time to give us over an hour of quality pod cast every week!!!

Incredible Podcast

Ryan is like an old friend now. I’ve been a model 3 reservation holder for over 2 years now & he has made the wait just that little bit easier. Now Ryan if you could just drive that Roadster over to the U.K. when you receive it.... :)

Benfeito ,

Who gave you 2-3 stars?

By far one of the best Tesla podcasts. Listen religiously and I love the fact that you give your listeners a chance to ask question. What a genuine Tesla fan.
