    In the second portion of our latest Cleantech Talk podcast with RK Equity's Rodney Hooper and Howard Klein, we ventured outside of mining more than we typically do to talk about energy density and vehicle-to-grid solutions, but we also circled back around for a strong focus on the gap between electric vehicle sales forecasts from automakers and actual battery-grade lithium production.

Top Notch

I do a video show on YouTube called That Electric Car Show and this podcast is an inspiration and the best place for Tesla nerds like me, thank you

No, I didn’t like the interview bashing President Trump, please keep your program about clean tech. I have two electric cars, a 17kw solar system, but I’m not condemning others that don’t. In our electrical district I’m one of two at this point that has a PV system! Yes I voted for President Trump and will again! The U.S. is going more renewable every year regardless of who’s president!!!!

Great podcast

Started a new job and everything you guys discuss is exactly what I need help keeping a pulse on. I thank you for that. I hope we’ll be on your radar soon.

The only thing I would recommend is making sure that you all aren’t afraid to challenge each other. There have been a few topics where I wish we got to hear some back and forth with different perspectives, even if it’s just playing devils advocate (most notably a unilateral call for Elon to step down as Tesla CEO, which you made feel “obvious” but his latest stock package suggests some very smart, very wealthy people completely disagree).

Thanks again for everything!
