Playlist for Show: Climate One

Host: Greg Dalton

Guests: Hamish McKenzie, Author, Insane Mode:  How Elon Musk’s Tesla Sparked an Electric Revolution to End the Age of Oil (Dutton, 2018); Lora Kolodny, Tech Reporter, CNBC; Katie Fehrenbacher, Senior Writer & Analyst, GreenBiz

Despite having the top-selling luxury car in 2018, and a loyal if not rabid customer base, Tesla has been facing major challenges. In August, maverick CEO Elon Musk was slapped with SEC charges over some rather misleading tweets. That move cost him and the company millions in fines and forced Musk to step down as chairman. Other skidmarks for Tesla include production delays, shareholder skittishness and some well-publicized workplace complaints. Host Greg Dalton invites three journalists and Tesla-watchers to assess the health of Tesla, its overall impact on the auto industry and its future as a leader in the green economy.
