    Man...you had me excited for a split second. I thought Talking Tesla (singular) from Mel, Tom & Robert was coming back! Damn!

    Me too - I love their show. I wish they would do one a month or something to talk about Model 3 experience after driving for awhile. Also insurance cost and just ownership hidden cost if any.

    I listen to several other podcasts and they are all very inferior compared to Talking Tesla...not enough humor/too dry.

    On their last show they said that it won’t be the last. That they will get together again at some point. Who knows when that will be though... yeah, they were one of the best Tesla podcasts.

    Mel, Tom, Robert - If you are reading this, Sabbatical is over. Come back and give us your input after delivery experience. We don't even know if Robert got his model 3.

    I was late to discover Talking Tesla, in early January 2018. Went back and listened to a lot of their earlier episodes... and then was so bummed out when their very next episode was their last! Do hope they will come across this thread and see how much they are missed!

    I just emailed a link to this thread, to: [email protected]

    And told them that they are missed.

    I've been tweeting Robert (@rrosenbl) and Talking Tesla (@talkingtesla) asking them to get the gang back together. I haven't bugged Mel, figured he's got a lot on his plate with his guests from overseas.

    I think a primary reason they put the show on hold was the cost of production. I suggested that their core audience would tune in even if they were to record on their iPhone.

    Thank you all for your kind words! Short of some online petition, this thread may be the tipping point to #EndTheSabbatical

    Hey Robert! I have been missing the weekly banter, and laughs! No pressure, but even a monthly/quarterly would be awesome! Will step it Up a notch on Patreon!

    I am day 1 reservation owner and you guys have been part of my life for the past 2 years. Every week I look forward to your podcast. This is my very first "New" car I will be buying. Image the excitement. I just configured mid April delivery ETA 3 to 6 weeks. I feel cheated not being able to share my story on your podcast. As soon as Tom and Mel got their ride the show went silent.
    I am sure other M3 owner would want to share their experiences. Let Mel rant on the bad point. It's still good to know.

    We know you are busy and I am happy to have at least one show a month.

    Man I miss that podcast! I will commit to quadrupling..make that quintupling my measly 3.00/month Patreon commitment if they return. Since their abrupt departure, my quality of life has plummeted and I fear I am going to need an SSRI augmented by an atypical antipsychotic agent augmented by transcranial magnetic stimulation augmented by ethyl alcohol as well as psychotherapy for abandonment issues and PTSD. It's been many months and I am still wandering around in a dissociated fugue state (Florida).

    My favorite Tesla Podcast is "The Tesla Show"
    The signal to noise ratio seems to be better than most podcasts.
