077 - Who Revived the Electric Car?
One hundred years ago the world changed - transitioning from the horse and buggy to the automobile. Most of the cars in that age were electric, relying on big bulky batteries for power. Henry Ford and Charles Kettering doomed those early electrics (you will have to listen to find out how). General Motors revived it in the 1990's, then killed it again. But from the ashes emerged products like the Prius, and companies like Tesla. Annie and Jay Warmke of Blue Rock Station discuss how this time around everything is different - and how the electric car will change our society in ways as profound as the horseless carriage did 100 years ago.
