Non-Compliant Podcast Episode 36: The One with Author Tim Higgins Non-Compliant Podcast

    • Society & Culture

In Non-Compliant Episode 36, Host Jay Edelson, nationally recognized plaintiff’s attorney and Founder of Edelson PC, is joined by Tim Higgins, author of Power Play: Tesla, Elon Musk, and the Bet of the Century.

To start the show, Jay and Tim discuss Tim’s experience writing the book. When Tim started writing this story in 2018, he thought it would document the collapse of Tesla (2:00). At the time, Tesla was on the brink of bankruptcy, Elon Musk was having regular meltdowns in public, and there was a lot of question on whether the company could deliver the Model 3. As time passed, the story changed from the company’s collapse, to one of the most remarkable turnarounds in a company’s history.

Later in the show, Jay and Tim discuss the connection between Tesla and Theranos (5:00). While both companies had founders running confidence games, unlike Elizabeth Holmes, Elon Musk had the technology early on to make the car battery work.

Next, Jay and Tim discuss the fan base and loyalty Tesla has gained over the years (24:00), and the company’s core philosophy (31:00).

To end the show, Tim and Jay discuss Elon Musk’s major motivations (35:00).
