    EPISODE 73 - "Tom's Leaving". The big app update is here and the guys discuss. Tom gives us a report of the Lucid Motors event last weekend, with details about the canapés, the bar and the car! Robert continues the discussion about his issues with the P100D and the lack of Supercharging for life. After Robert's big scoop about the Model 3 last week, we have been receiving more emails with rumours about Model 3 production! Lots of other news, stories and letters this week. So much, in fact that Tom decides to cut and run early.

    EPISODE 74 - SPACE POOP.

    So much news! Another successful Space X launch and landing. Mel steers us away from the usual depressing start with a Tesla feel good story for the week, involving a good samaritan Tesla owner. We take a glimpse into the future through Elon’s eyes, as Robert discusses the presentation at the “World Government Summit”. Tom helps us get to the bottom of the Federal Tax Credit confusion. Our absolute favourite story of the week is the latest project of the NASA Tournament Lab, "The Space Poop Challenge". And unfortunately, thanks to a tweet from Elon, Robert discovers what a "dad joke" is.

    Ep 75 - Tesla "world's biggest company"

    The big focus this week is on the Tesla Earnings Call. Aside from the obvious financial discussions, the most exciting news (in Mel's mind) is the announcement that Tesla plans to accelerate the expansion of the Supercharger network this year, starting with doubling the number of North American Supercharger locations in 2017. There is much speculation about future Gigafactories. In other news this week, Grandpa (Mel's father-in-law) got a BOLT and he really likes it! Tom took his daughter to "B.R.A.K.E.S.", a teen pro-active driving school and he reports back on how excellent the experience was. And Mel reveals his desires to install the Tesla Solar Roof tiles on the new studio's roof.

    Ep 76 - What Do You Think, Mel?

    Mel is away in Hawaii, so Robert and Tom are in charge. They talk about all the news this week, including the Space X announcement to fly passengers on a private trip around the moon in 2018. Tom has some strong opinions about that story. They tell us about the massive solar park on the Tibetan Plateau in Eastern China. Once again we have the potential for the press to wax on and on over a Tesla fire in China, but Robert retorts with the news that Mercedes is recalling 300,000 US cars due to fire hazard and Lamborghini are recalling thousands of supercars. Lots of discussion about Lithium Ion Batteries, and the possibility of Sodium batteries. Many listeners are asking about how Teslas perform in the cold and Robert and Tom slug it out one more time about gas taxes and roadways.

    Ep 77 - Beware Model 3 Tracker

    Mel believes he may have stumbled across some kind of shady hacker site whilst trying to find the model 3 tracker. For the correct link go to our shownotes! Also, Mel's S still has WAVY LINES! So things get off to a feisty start this week. Robert skypes in from Washing-tonne, but Mel is back in Cali. Lots of exciting Tesla news this week. A video was posted by Unplugged Performance of a silver Model 3 driving down by the hyperloop track in LA. Panasonic is adding a solar roof to the Japanese version of the Prius Prime. Meanwhile, there is a bit of a cluster going on in the state of South Australia’s electrical grid, but it seems Elon is coming to the rescue! This and much more to discuss, oh and did we mention that Mel's Model S still has WAVY LINES!?

    Ep 78 - 5 Minutes For Model 3 Delivery

    Elon Musk wants the Model 3 delivery process to take 5 minutes! All the guys are back in the studio in LA to discuss. Robert is back from Washington(ne) where he sat in on the House Energy and Commerce Committee Subcommittee on Digital Commerce, and the subcommittee on Environment. Big news in Autonomy this week from the California DMV. Friday, the DMV revealed it would allow manufacturers to self-certify that their vehicles are safe. Just as the DMV can revoke a human's license, it can also revoke a company's ability to operate self-driving cars on state roads, under the proposed rules. In other news, Tesla seeks to raise $1.15 billion in a stock offering, they announce the discontinuation of Model S with 60 kwh battery packs. More discussion involving the Tesla parking lot, renewables, Google sunroof, and Space X.

    Ep 81 - Model 3 Loaner Car

    It seems Tesla have been listening! Mel got a call last week from the Tesla Service centre, suggesting all this talk of his wavy lines was getting embarrassing for them. So, he tells us how it all went down. Including his Tesla loaner. Meanwhile, Robert went up north to visit the Tesla Factory for his 3rd tour! He reports about the tour and also, the Gen 4's first big trip. He talks all about autopilot and how the trip went. Big discussions about A.I. and the demise of civilization, some Easter egg treats, the stock price, Lockheed "Mars Base Camp" plans, and Model 3 spy videos.

    Ep 87 - Robert Talks To Elon

    There is a lot to cover this week! Supercharging for all!? Again? Or not? News this week that existing owners can give free, unlimited Supercharging to up to five friends by sharing their referral code seems to have caused confusion, and mixed reactions. Meanwhile, our most exciting news this week is that Robert got into a little tweet exchange with Elon Musk about the Tesla Autopilot Software. Also lots of talk of gigafactory, solar and supercharger news.
