Good content but significant technical glitches

Downloads on Apple days late, sometimes wrong episodes, surprising from a Mac affiliated company

Great show but keep politics out

I do enjoy the show and listen to it frequently but I would prefer the few occasions you talk about it do yourself a favor and keep on topic.

Latest episode they specifically say they are not going to talk about politics but a few minutes later the criticisms began. Disappointing they chose to slam politicians as opposed to focusing on how their policies impact the EV market.

My-Nickname-Was-Taken! ,

Mission

Greatly appreciate the frank and honest discussion regarding the divergence of Musk and the mission. Would relish regular segments devoted to emerging energy density tech and who is incorporating into their production (eg, Rivian’s 46xx cell).
