The Tesla Roadster Whisperer (feat. Carl Medlock) | TMC Podcast #7

Special Guest- Carl Medlock @CM_007
Medlock and Sons

We start out TMC Podcast #7 by introducing our special guest, Carl Medlock, AKA "The Tesla Roadster Whisperer". Carl is a former employee of Tesla, and now is known as the preeminent Roadster expert. Carl runs a shop with his sons in Seattle, Washington, where he will routinely have north of 40 Roadsters in there at any given time. Carl is making a massive contribution to the continued maintenance and operation of Tesla Roadsters that are still on the road. Carl tells us his story of time at Tesla, and how he started subsequently working on Roadsters. We then discuss various topics with him such as Elon's April 14 + 17 TED interviews, Carl's thoughts on FSD, an off-topic story about an Al Qaeda drop car, the news that the mobile connector is now not included by default in new Tesla vehicle purchases, and much more. We also answer viewer questions.
