This is Episode 4 of EV Musings a podcast about Electric Vehicles and things that are interesting to Electric Vehicle owners
On our podcast today we’ll be talking about the mainstream media and how they tend to portray electric vehicles in a negative light.
We'll cover topics such as the type of articles that get written, who reads and comments on them, the influence of Big Oil and how we can help move the conversation forward constructively.
