Cars & Comrades
Episode 16

Dogs of Lordstown

Cars & Comrades published on

In which we discuss Lordstown Motors, Nikola, and other various electric car start-ups.  Why are are most of them financially mis-managed yet valued in the billions?  Does capitalism really breed innovation?  Does Zach's truck still have green reverse lights?  And what do electric cars have to do with the children's TV show Blue's Clues?  Find out the answers to all these questions (and more) on this week's episode.

Sorry for the poor audio quality, Conner had microphone problems and ended up using a tin can and string instead. Hopefully our next episode will sound better and will be released on time.
