Are you ready to supercharge your understanding of electric vehicles? On today's episode, we electrify your knowledge with insights straight from the expert's mouth — Richard 'Buzz' Smith - The EVangelist.

 We uncover the surprising role temperature plays in EV performance and how the very act of cooling your car can impact its battery life and range. Did you know your EV's battery could lose up to 5% of its capacity over time? Buzz shares these shocking facts and more. 

We shift gears in the second half of our episode as we journey into the future. Picture the internet's transformation and the fall of long-distance phone call costs. Now imagine a similar kind of revolution in the EV industry, sparked by the growing infrastructure in the U.S. From Tesla's charging network to the Ford F-150 Lightning, get ready to experience the electrifying potential of these innovations. And yes, we'll also address why Tesla fires make headlines and the implications of the infrastructure rollout in Texas.

Finally, we dive into the world of vehicle-to-grid and energy transfer. Imagine cars contributing to a virtual power plant, creating an energy stock market. We delve into the benefits of a Tesla Powerwall, review automobile history, and bring some hot-off-the-press news from the auto industry.
