Excellent reporting

Fred and Seth have crafted an excellent program across their suite of writing and podcasts. I came into the EV industry mid-2020 and got super involved thanks to them being highly informative and making the space interesting and exciting! So much so that I’m working at a startup for EV charging now! Highly recommend this podcast for anyone interested in EVs or who is already familiar but looking to keep up with the news and trends. Thanks Fred and Seth!

Enjoyable new podcast on automotive electric revolution

Keep up the great automotive discussion on teslas and other electric vehicles. I enjoy the electrik podcast, i dont always agree with the hosts but then it would be weird if I did. I find the videos and podcasts interesting. Thank you for both your fine efforts.

Model X-Ellent

My go-to podcast for all things Tesla et cetera, and if you like this podcast, go check out 9to5Mac. But Seth, I do have one request: get some solid guys together for some good Linux talk. That would provide a great balance between news on Apple's closed ecosystem and information on the thriving open-source development in Linux. It would be the perfect addition to 9to5Mac, and would certainly fill a void in the podcast world that few other podcasts even try to address. If you consider my request, please respond to this post - the world of Linux would love to hear from 9to5Mac.
