Best EV show out there

I love the show. I listen to it every week and it really keeps me informed on the latest EV news. Thanks guys!

Coyote 1992 ,

Great for car rides

Love listening to the podcast when driving for work

khrushit ,

Unispirational

The guys seem like great guys but the cast is just not great. If you want to hear two guys drone on about Elon Musk and Tesla minutia this could be the podcast for you. If you actually want to find EV news or learn about EV’s check out EV News Daily or InsideEVs
