This week on the Electrek Podcast, we discuss the most popular news in the world of sustainable transport and energy, including Tesla releasing its production and delivery numbers, software update version 9, Elon Musk’s love story with the SEC, and electric vehicles in Paris.
The Electrek Podcast is me, Fred Lambert, editor-in-chief of Electrek, and Seth Weintraub, founder and publisher of Electrek and the 9to5 network, discussing all our top stories of the week while taking questions from our readers and highlighting the most insightful comments on the site.
The show is live every Friday at 4pm ET on Electrek’s Youtube channel, but this week is going to be different because Electrek’s team is in Paris for the Mondial de l’Auto. Though we are going to start at the same time (10pm for us).
As a reminder we’ll have an accompanying post, like this one, on the site with an embedded link to the live stream. Head to the Youtube channel to get your questions and comments in.
After the show ends at around 5pm ET, the video will be archived on YouTube and the audio on all your favorite podcast apps through our RSS feed: https://electrek.co/podcastRSS. Grab the quick link to iTunes here.
