On today's episode we talk about Elon Musk and the shaky financial foundation of one of the world's most well known electric car manufacturers: Tesla. Joining us is a mysterious stranger from Reddit whose comment caught our attention some months ago: https://np.reddit.com/r/news/comments/8owkmg/tesla_shareholders_reject_bid_to_strip_musk_of/e06xe3v/ We talk about the recent news surrounding Elon Musk & the financials of Tesla, the feasability of electric cars to actually make a dent in global warming, the lack of a left wing alternative to individualistic/consumer driven solutions to the climate crisis (a massive expansion of public transportation would obviously be better) and how living on a SpaceX owned Mars colony would not be unlike the distopian company housing of 19th century industrial Britain.
