Navigating the gig economy is no easy task, but our latest podcast episode offers an insightful and entertaining exploration of this complex world. From the new laws about using phones while driving to the unexpected trials of owning an electric vehicle (EV), this episode covers a vast array of relevant topics.
Tesla, Uber, and electric vehicles are all up for discussion in this episode. While Tesla has revolutionized the auto industry with its high-tech electric cars, Uber has changed the face of personal transportation with its ride-hailing service. These two giants, along with the broader EV market, play significant roles in the gig economy. Whether you’re an Uber driver delivering pizzas for Domino’s or a Tesla owner navigating the challenges of EV ownership, these topics are likely to resonate with you.
One of the episode’s highlights is the exploration of the debate around Autonomous Vehicles (AVs). The discussion delves into the ‘Safe Streets Rebels,‘ a protest group raising concerns about the increasing presence of AVs on our streets. With safety concerns and ethical questions surrounding AVs, this is a debate that is only heating up.
But it’s not all serious discussion. The episode also features some hilarious tales from Uber drivers and their passengers. From unexpected encounters to the strange and humorous situations that can arise during a ride, these stories offer a lighter take on the gig economy.

Finally, the episode examines the indispensable role of dash cams in the gig economy.
