Best Electric Car Podcasts:
1. EV News Daily
The first of the five best electric car podcasts is EV News Daily. As the name of the podcast suggests, EV News Daily is a daily electric car podcast produced solely by Martyn Lee. Unlike other podcasts, EV News Daily covers global EV news. Each episode is about 15 minutes.
Additionally, the podcast holds a “Saturday Special” where Lee interviews industry leaders and experts for an extended length episode. Lastly, EV News Daily asks listeners to participate in “Question of the Week”. At the end of the week, Lee reads the answers of several listeners.
2. Ride the Lightning: The Unofficial Tesla Podcast
Ride the Lighting: The Unofficial Tesla Podcast is hosted solely by Ryan McCafferey. Every Friday, McCafferey releases the 1.5-2 hour podcast covering specifically Tesla news.
McCafferey covers Tesla news of the previous week during the first 30 minutes. The next segment is the hour long “Ride the Lightning Hotline”. The “Ride the Lightning Hotline” is a listener provided ‘ask a question’ or ‘respond to a question’. Typically, listeners ask and respond to Tesla in-car software troubleshooting and buying advice.
The last segment is the “Pro Tip of the Week”. Like the previous segment, listeners call in and provide others a notable tip to enhance their Tesla experience.

5. EV-Resource Podcast
Finally, final of the best electric car podcasts is by EV-Resource.
EV-Resource is fairly new, however, that doesn’t stop show host Zack Hurst from delivering an awesome podcast. EV-Resource is perfect for both first-time EV owners and shoppers as well as experience EV drivers. Published on a weekly basis, EV-Resource provides a great roundup on the latest EV news in addition to EV ownership stories from Zack.
