"And partner at a marketing agency will actually to marketing agencies under the same roof when it's called inbound junction. Still active in historically into the bbc asked base. I'm a marketer for about more than ten years in the b. two b. safe-space which is very big in israel of work tel aviv based agency and about four five years ago we were getting pretty big fintech space and some are bigger and better partners in israel talks about about the growing space into my partners very early investors and bitcoin lost a lot of money in mccormack's ended just kind of opened a sister agency called market across and started working with projects. We were very active. In the seal boom downs of jean-ann we've matured with industry today. We are a full stack marketing agency working with a lot of big macs. How does marketing. How does marketing. For blockchain and crypto. How does that differ. 'cause said you're kind of doing both sides you have under one roof. How what's the. What's the core. Differences remark integration question. I would say lease the first generation of projects that i was part of thousands of so there. I always say that i think blockchain is over. Pr and marketed. Because there were actual products it was more of misstatements ideas and most of these eight based protocols again you know. You don't have a big city on the website of sign up or purchase. Or whatever. So very different from classical. I would say. Vw marketing which has literally a conversion point. Put something in relics alright optimizing towards a funnel or something like that. So i would think that that is the most core core difference between product marketing and more i would say branding and marketing and maybe even assisting fundraising style marketing. That's i think the core difference. And i think the other one would be today about. There's just so much charity very fast. So when you go to the other part which our product will be a wallet in exchange. Whatever you have environments where there's fifty or sixty comes king in two three years and it's so hard to differentiate especially for a marketer to try convey that message so i think that's how it this is so new and it kind of there. There are some leaders in some spots in the sphere. But but still. Is that a big issue. This this problem differentiation. Where we're as a marketer. You have to single out. You know you're trying to take your client and say this is why they're different but is the customer. The customer base even knowledgeable enough about about the technology that you could differentiate easily here. That's a that's a great question. So let's different you between i would say Based protocols and technology and then products like exchangeable so when people who come to us again mostly developers or developers in the blockchain space are very very techy. Maybe don't come from a business or marketing background. They'll come to us and say oh you know my network goes to eleven speed or whatever and you're in me as a marketer i'm gonna say right but what's on the block you know how many people transactions are actually processing so in. That's a. that's a big gap between when people want to sell the technical capabilities and want to say all right the me as a marketer pr person at least today people much more wanna see about adoption. So that's like. I think i'm the tech level where you need to go and say all right you're not gonna talk about triple charting. Whatever because that's not really the main thing had to bring that chored usable business use case and when it comes to product marketing and it's also a bit together. I think it's kind of like schilling. Is is great outside but when sit inside the strategy. That doesn't look right. there's a lot of exchanges. What's different about this other than you know. Argos secrete the easiest platform okay. Great but right now in other space would you giving people what's different in. How do you play on. That really executive could be the non. Kyc concept could be the fiat pairings. It could be a really good mobile interface. But we're in that place already. Were ordinary place where people are discussing that not just stating we're going to build a the nicest exchange so I think we're an industry. That's moving in the marketing. Space from wall want will ken to like our is in doing. So that's for me like my biggest mission with my clients. It's really trip. Notch it down from the potential to what's actually

European Road Tripping In 1975 with Marshall & Debbie Hockett

"Hello Travel, nerds and welcome to the extra packing peanuts travel podcast the show that teaches you how to travel more while spending less. Host Travis Sherry and joining me today or to people who in one, thousand, nine, hundred, seventy, five, hopped on a plane to Europe. Grabbed the VW named Banana spent a year exploring the continent and then wrote a book about it forty five years later Marshal and Debbie, Hawk it from tripping nine hundred and seventy-five dot com marshland. Debbie thanks for joining me. Huge. Welcome. Thanks for having us and we are going to get into the adventure that you had in one, thousand, nine, hundred, ninety, five. This is a travel podcast after all, we're GONNA, talk about all your travels and how things have changed but to me, the most impressive part isn't the trip itself but that you wrote a book about it, forty five years later because so many people say I want to write a book I WANNA, write a book I want to write a book and I'll get eventually and you know they never do. So you guys are part of a very small minority that actually did it. So let's let's start with that. Tell us. How the book finally got written and why did it why we find like we got we got to do this. We just have to finish this life goal. Well the book was written all the time, all those years they happened to be A book that was given to us by one of our friends, it was a blank page book. And it was a hardback on the spine of the book was written tripping nine, thousand, nine, hundred, seventy five and our friend presented it to us before we laughed. Oh look. Just happened as. The original. So he wrote a journal every almost every day the woman who gave us this we're about A. Week from going on this trip for a year and she with noticed us. She gave us this book and she said. You've got to be completely truthful. You got be truthful and I want to be the first person who reaches thing. her name Melissa Marian Marcus. I said sure. I agree to those terms. Traveling for a year. When we got back. She was the first person reading. She loved. Unfortunately. Mary died of cancer. So. Anyhow I was busy having my own law firm. Makes CETERA. Sat on the shelf. This on behind. So it sat there for a long time a long time. We resumed our careers. Marshall had a really good a domestic family law practice in San Diego. And then he was appointed by governor, to be a judge, you weren't just sitting around not doing anything. Let's put it that way. Right you guys now. Retirement. We already had our retirement. That's right. That's right. You're taking it early. So so you go through this and the book sits on the shelf and sitting there and singer take us then to the decision to actually. Make into a published book that it is. Now, whose idea was it? was there any hesitation to doing it or did you think now after all these years you know we have to? That was known for traveling because just like you are. Trailing I was talking to court Turco and she was saying Gosh all the places you've been your write a book. Some clicked in my mind I said you know I think Arne. So. So I. Needed to. Do. Prologue. epilogue. Their tell her he made a sense of easy. It was not easy. Now hold on here. Yeah. Just just type it up epilogue prologue but. was, it was it word for word from the Journal or did you have to go back and you know add some different language or or make it read more like a book like I corrected some spelling? Errors. There were many corrections at all. It's it's pretty much word for word. Wow. Wow what and so you mentioned that you guys are now you're known for traveling. That wasn't the only trip that you talk all that kind of stuff. What do you see? As some of the biggest differences between like when you travel and then. Now or recently and back then because that must have been a pretty neat trip down memory lane. Going back through the book, typing it up. But then saying, well, this could never happen nowadays or this wouldn't happen nowadays because of this this and this gives us some of the biggest differences. The number of tourists. It's crazy now. So way less tourist. Then then there are now have you have you noticed that like just across Europe or would you say it's kind of a worldwide phenomenon now at this point like it's just so much more accessible for let's say regular everyday people to get a plane ticket to go see a place that they've always dreamed of seeing. That's what I would say. Yes. And since more people have traveled and written books. About it I think people wanted to travel more you can't touch stone. Stonehenge. They don't allow that you guys now. You can't see. The. Mona. Lisa, they're just eighty thousand lots of tourists near behind them across the room at A. Painting that is now the size of. Came

"Hunt for. Designers to help him reinvigorate the ailing company. After lots surveyed the floor, he picked his six favorite cars of the show and it turned out four of the six had been designed by a towel design to Jaro. Wow Jarrah was invited to Volkswagen headquarters in Wolfsburg Germany in nineteen seventy where Volkswagen him for input on their upcoming designs. Apparently, the Germans were impressed. A towel designed earned its biggest mass market designed deal to date in nineteen seventy-three when Volkswagen tapped Jaro to design the Passat, which was produced as both a two door and four door fastback sedan and hatchback. I didn't realize that Passat was that old. Yeah. Those older ones are sick. Yeah. They're so cool. There's a minute there really trying to find one. Yeah like a early at issue or passat slammed on some Rican N. kyw's. ooh. I only I only run road forms so it would be slammed on some road forms did well, no can block.

Not Cool wagons. Like. Be Five S for avant. In like yellow or jazz blew. Jazz blew out the red that's probably third. Sure. Very cool. I'm just saying.

It's just not the coolest you're like I owned a Saturn l three hundred wagon and I was like, I'm not GonNa have a wagon again obviously, it's not true right now but like It's so nice to just be able to like open up your trunk and you can fit of refrigerator.

As the day Tomasso may USTA. It was that folding paper style making use a flat surfaces and sharp corners, but this time for the average consumer. The clear stylistic vision elevated what was essentially a family car into something that was intangibly cooler than the average car of the nineteen seventies. became a major hit for Volkswagen and it was the magic of Jarrah. HALVOR jars next project for Volkswagen. Now, it proved to be as successful car design of all time and cement his relationship with Volkswagen where his designs made him. The brand's most influential modern designer. It was the Volkswagen Mark One. Golf the car jar would later recognized quote the most important car of my career and James To. Yes most. The golf initially marketed in the US as the rabbit. You. Didn't know because they brought my girlfriend and tell me about that when she was showing me how to shave. That's crazy. So when they brought, they brought the rabbit back for a little bit, right? Yeah. In two thousand five was that just a polo over here then or was that was the Gulf they changed the name of the Gulf back to the ranch like a year or two. Wow. That's going into my golf is from one of those rabbits. Think Dang. You know what's crazy my dad had sorry. My girlfriend had a We had a we had a rabbit for a little while when I was a kid.

"An architecture that tradition of creativity was alive and well in the nineteen fifties when Georgetta arrived to the city. It must have been an incredibly inspiring place for a brilliant teenage artist to be sent to study. Terrain also happened to be the home of the country's automotive industry which had thrived in the early twentieth century but had been knocked on its by World War Two with scoreboard alert Italy Kinda lost most importantly though Fiat was based in Teheran Fiat was the General Motors of. And as time went on, it acquired. So many of its competitors that a couple of decades later Fiat was practically the Italian auto industry. Have you guys ever seen the test track? They have on top of the Fiat factory yet so cool it's so cool. So much of success is simply being in the right place at the right time and for a young designer to Rin of the nineteen fifties was exactly that time and place by then the Italian economy was picking up and car manufacturing was a vital ingredient to the recovery. Meanwhile, Jaro was studying at art school during the day and studying technical design at night among the things he was drawing were cars and one fateful day jar sketches crossed the desk of Dante Giacosa Fiat's technical director. GIACOSA was the designer of the Fiat Five, hundred, a compact city car that would sell nearly four million units and cement Fiat's postwar dominance. He was impressed enough to bring Jaro, who had no work experience to that point on board as a junior designer at the age of seventeen. That's a gamble I mean that's. Amazing. What kind of drawings were you guys doing at seventeen? I actually had this cool skull that I was really cultivating through high school I was doing skull. I would draw zero. Skull. And the Greg Logo. Nice that's all you need. So we would probably work at We'd probably be doing designs for Spencer's sounds like. A. Jarrah started at Fiat during a golden age of the Italian auto and a big reason for the industry success was the increasing collaboration between the engineers and designers. As Jara told esquire magazine in a career retrospective last year quote before those days, the engineers had really done the design but now industrial was coming in and we'd give engineers ideas for solving problems. So then they could create new products and systems for us to create something with and so it went on. Though. It went on. Is Great. Yeah. I think there's like there's A. A common. Perception that maybe like the engineers and designers don't get along, you know because the engineers or the actual ones that have to. So they say the engineers are the ones that have that make designs actually work in a practical sense like that but. it sounds like right at this point in the story there really collaborating more. So there that rivalry doesn't really exist and you can have those really beautiful. Classic designs, but still have them work. Yeah. There's a there's an old saying if it's not good design if it doesn't work still Jaro didn't make a huge market Fiat the company was massive and he was a tiny teenage anchovy in a big Mediterranean Sea. His bosses were pleased with his work and the promise he showed but none of his design proposals were actually getting approved and turned into real life cars isn't it George? Ero Jujiro I'm just G it's. The I gives it a Jew Jew jar jar jar. Did Yaro. Honest. Going to say Jaro that's probably better. There's probably a better. Way of saying it. JETER DETROIT and she just call him G G G G Georgetta Jaros basically the gee-gee Allen of automotive design. He had to eat a lot of sh-. Own. To get these designs drawn. I've been compared to GDN really. Yeah. The first thing I did when I moved to La that like anyone noticed was I threw up all over the place. You, see me. Milk, right? Yeah. On stage I drink a gallon and a half of milk and threw up for three minutes. You need a ten gallon stomach like Nolan, so you don't Pekan. You drink a whole gallon of milk noam all day. Now I didn't know I. He picked out of his buddy. No. You. Didn't few now I tried to very hard. But it wouldn't happen. So I my stomach was just. Packed, full of milk. And then. And then I I. As Joe Delicately put it. Out of my by. For a little while. Yeah. It was. It was pretty bad. That was I. can't believe I did that I learned a very valuable lesson is to know more physical stunts. Yeah. We're not that. We're not the dude sin we don't need. Something well, we say that we say that we're not the dude sins and I said that I wouldn't do a physical anymore physical challenges and then like two weeks later we got one of those stupid spicy chips and I ate part of that and which then caused me again a short time later you gotta my but so. I don't learn is the lesson I guess. But Hey Nolan not learning from history is the most Americans. It's True. That's very true. Right your you would get an opportunity to make his mark, the nineteen, Fifty, eight, Turin Motor show just like when his sketches got him the job at Fiat Jaros Pencil did the talking as Nuccio Bertone was blown away budget jaros futuristic jetsons like sketches. Tone was the owner of karate, a baton one of the top independent Italian design shops. At, the time many high and auto manufacturers relied on outside companies like Bertone to the body work on their cars I like to imagine that. Jaros. Pencil. Actually did talk. or He's like too nervous to talk to somebody. So he's like. I usually speakerphone. Gratitude a two but there's a little like bug in his. Sketches. Interestingly bertone didn't see himself as the designer he never designed so much as a rickshaw in his role at the company which bore his name. Instead he saw himself as a talent scout of the automotive design world injured Jaro was a five star prospect look I would love to drive race cars someday. But I've realized that I am too old to become a professional. So I've recently decided that I think I wanNA, have a race team at sometime in the future maybe when I'm like sixty or so yeah, I mean I'm going to find the best what shelby did that's GonNa do a show you was a Bada Chubby one limousine driver. Yeah. But then he like he didn't design any of his cars, he got the right people to do that. He got the right mechanics. He got the right engineers he assembled everyone like a frigging marvel universe. His name on the Nick Fury Yeah and plus Nick Fury doesn't doesn't have to go out and fight those aliens A. So Bertone gave Jaro tryout the chance to test design for cuts. Gerrad city. The chance to do is designed for cut study bertone. Assignment was to design a four door sedan with sporty styling for Alpha Romeu Jaro got to work and nucleotide was so impressed by the result that he offered to Jaro a twenty one year old who still hadn't designed to railroad car. The role of chief designer at Bertone. New then turned around and sold the test designed to Alfa Romeo, where it would become the Alfa Romeo.

"There's a very solid chance that Georgia Jaro is the greatest car designer of all time. .

A driver could actually use that combination of artistic innovation and practicality made Jaro one of the. . Most bankable designers of the seventies and eighties all told his decades long career. . He designed over two hundred cars totaling over sixty million in sales sixty million units. . You've almost definitely ridden or driven a car that Gerardo originally designed I always confused by that sixty million because I was like that could be just the mark one Gulf in one year. . That's like, , yeah, , that's the mark one golf if they sold them for sixty dollars. . Yeah like not even they sold them for like three like. . Yeah, , yes. . Sixty million units. . That's nuts. . That's like conservatively. . A. . Like a Billion Dollars Oh like billions I'd probably say more than that. . Yeah. . Long Story Short to jar continues to have a massive influence on automotive design but who influenced to Jaro? ? Born in one, , thousand, , nine, , hundred, , thirty, , eight he couldn't come from a long line of car designers because cars hadn't been around for that long. . Instead his father grandfather and great-grandfather were all artists who specialized in painting elaborate murals and frescos in the churches and palaces of Italy. . Naturally Young Georgetta himself wanted to follow the family tradition and be a painter himself. . However, , real life intervened in the depressed post World War Two economy of Italy Mario Jer. .

The Surprising Connection Between the VW Golf and the DeLorean

"There's a very solid chance that Georgia Jaro is the greatest car designer of all time. His genius was in his ability to combine amazing artistic creativity with practical engineering know how his designs are futuristic even fifty years later. But when he drew them, they weren't just concepts. They were practical blueprints. WHO's measurements were strictly proportioned to be something. A driver could actually use that combination of artistic innovation and practicality made Jaro one of the. Most bankable designers of the seventies and eighties all told his decades long career. He designed over two hundred cars totaling over sixty million in sales sixty million units. You've almost definitely ridden or driven a car that Gerardo originally designed I always confused by that sixty million because I was like that could be just the mark one Gulf in one year. That's like, yeah, that's the mark one golf if they sold them for sixty dollars. Yeah like not even they sold them for like three like. Yeah, yes. Sixty million units. That's nuts. That's like conservatively. A. Like a Billion Dollars Oh like billions I'd probably say more than that. Yeah. Long Story Short to jar continues to have a massive influence on automotive design but who influenced to Jaro? Born in one, thousand, nine, hundred, thirty, eight he couldn't come from a long line of car designers because cars hadn't been around for that long. Instead his father grandfather and great-grandfather were all artists who specialized in painting elaborate murals and frescos in the churches and palaces of Italy. Naturally Young Georgetta himself wanted to follow the family tradition and be a painter himself. However, real life intervened in the depressed post World War Two economy of Italy Mario Jer. Father recognized his son's artistic talent but wanted to make sure Jetta learned practical applications for his skills. Italy was no longer a country of churches and palaces that needed painting after centuries of tradition it was now being pushed into modernity by global forces of change. So as a teenager Ger, jetta was sent sixty miles north from Garesh CEO father's town to the city of Turin to study technical drawing and costume design. Strange Mix. Drafting table on one side of the room. One of those cool. Sewing Mannequins on the other yet no head no arms no legs just that torso the bus. All of his costumes look like little cars. For centuries, terrain has been a major cultural hub of Italy with centuries of painters opera, an architecture that tradition of creativity was alive and well in the nineteen fifties when Georgetta arrived to the city. It must have been an incredibly inspiring place for a brilliant teenage artist to be sent to study. Terrain also happened to be the home of the country's automotive industry which had thrived in the early twentieth century but had been knocked on its by World War Two with scoreboard alert Italy Kinda lost most importantly though Fiat was based in Teheran Fiat was the General Motors of. And as time went on, it acquired. So many of its competitors that a couple of decades later Fiat was practically the Italian auto industry. Have you guys ever seen the test track? They have on top of the Fiat factory yet so cool it's so cool. So much of success is simply being in the right place at the right time and for a young designer to Rin of the nineteen fifties was exactly that time and place by then the Italian economy was picking up and car manufacturing was a vital ingredient to the recovery. Meanwhile, Jaro was studying at art school during the day and studying technical design at night among the things he was drawing were cars and one fateful day jar sketches crossed the desk of Dante Giacosa Fiat's technical director. GIACOSA was the designer of the Fiat Five, hundred, a compact city car that would sell nearly four million units and cement Fiat's postwar dominance. He was impressed enough to bring Jaro, who had no work experience to that point on board as a junior designer at the age of seventeen. That's a gamble I mean that's. Amazing. What kind of drawings were you guys doing at seventeen? I actually had this cool skull that I was really cultivating through high school I was doing skull. I would draw zero. Skull. And the Greg Logo. Nice that's all you need. So we would probably work at We'd probably be doing designs for Spencer's sounds like. A.

Postal Service warns Pennsylvania that mail-in ballots may arrive too late

"Will be the first general election when anyone in Pennsylvania can request a mail in ballot for any reason, But the Post office says it might not be up to the job. VW's Tim Jimenez. Joining us live with more on this him Good morning. Good morning, Carol. Because of those concerns, Pennsylvania's Department of State filed late last night a request to the state Supreme Court that mail in ballots postmarked by or on Election day could be counted. If they're received up to three days after the election. Right now, voters out works his voters can request a ballot up to a week before the election. The county's cannot count any that they receive post Election day voter advocate groups like the Committee of 70 They were pushing for the deadline to actually go back a week. Policy director Patrick Christmas says three days is certainly better than nothing happening. If that deadline doesn't change, there are a lot of people at risk of being seen franchise, thousands thousands people, and, he says. You know the committee's all for voting becoming easier for people not more difficult. Wolf Administration in the filing cited a letter from the Postal Service lawyer from late last month that essentially says the way the mail in the voting process works in Pennsylvania just is a match up with the capabilities of the post office. And there's no guarantee balance can be mailed to be tallied in time, and the Post Office says voters should request ballots 15 days or more ahead of time and the committee of 70 saying, with all this going on, of course, you have the pandemic as well. I definitely don't risk it, they say and get that ballot as early as possible. All that is happening as President. Trump says the Post office should not get much needed funding because of fear of widespread fraud through mail in voting. But Carol groups like committee of 70 They say there is no evidence of that whatsoever.

5 Ways to Learn from Your Competitors and Shortcut Your Marketing Success

"Welcome to another episode of Marketing School. I'm Eric Su and I'm Neil Patel and today we're GonNa talk about five ways to learn from your competitors and shortcut your marketing success so I'll go with number one. I I talked about this. I believe maybe less two episodes but I do want to bring it up because it's fresh and actually got to play with the tool for the first time today. And so. The tour Spark Torah that's S. P. A. R. K. T. O. R. O. And the reason I sparked Toro is if you think about Chet Holmes Dream one hundred concept which is basically. If I want to promote my book. I'm GonNa go find top one hundred podcast in gaming for example. Okay that's my dream. One hundred for the PODCAST THAT. I'M GONNA find a dream. One hundred four youtube right so this dream one hundred concept was kind of coined by him and then Russell Brunson from click funnels kind of made a dream one hundred four different categories. Now what's beautiful? About Spark Toro is instead of you having to manually find all the influencers all the partners that you might attention WanNa work with you can just use spark twirl and you get five free searches a month and you can just find some key words by the way you can find a bunch of people and from there. You can basically decide okay. I'm going to try to work with these people reach out to these people and you're going to leverage the audience that they already have to help you get to where you WANNA go. That's number one. The second thing that I would do is go look at your competitors and see which one is running a continuing modifying. Their design built with is a website. That tells you if someone's using AB testing software alike optimize VW or hot jar. Crazy or anything like that and what you want to end up doing is seeing what changes are making because almost continue making changes and they're using these softwares that means tracking to make sure that the changes they're making in their design and copy is boosting sales revenue conversions. So I like doing is using way back. Machine Way. Back machine shows me the variations of their pages that they've been using and how their design and copy has evolved over time. And then what I like doing is learning from that. Because if they're using the conversion software you know that the changes that are making tend to be increasing conversions so learned from that and I should give you on what direction you should be going with your business to start getting more sales more conversions faster versus having to do all the learnings that they already did the third one. This seems like a dust. Amen but facebook Ad Library has been great. I mean to be able to see when your competitors are putting up new ads and how long they been running those ads for what type of ad copy they're using chances are if they've been running ads for a very long time there either a stupid or be. They has been working really well right. It's it's was the time it's one or the other and they're probably not number one if they've concept been spending a ton of money and so facebook our library. I like to use it. Not only look a competitor's withdrawn stations that I could potentially swipe because when you're writing copy or when you're writing at any type of advertising you ultimately looking for copy you're looking for some type of structure that you can pull from and then ultimately make it your own number four look one thing that all your competition's doing online and I don't understand. Why people do this people go on. Podcast interviews and talk about their business the revenue. What's causing it to grow failures. They had and they're spilling all their beans like one podcast that I listen to a lot on the enough is leveling up another one Nathan Laco and when you look at these podcast you know? I'm not mentioning Eric's leveling up because he's my Kohl's marketing school. It honestly is good and a lot of my competitors have been on his podcast or people in similar industries. They talk about what's working for them. What's failed and their strategies? And they're spilling their beans and a lot of them do brag. And what's cool about for me as a marketer is I'm able to learn from it and avoid their pitfalls and failures so that way I can grow faster so make sure you search for your competitors and add the word revenue at the end or podcasts at the end. And you'll find that the reveal a lot of articles or podcast episodes breaking down how they're doing on what you can learn from them to grow faster. Yeah Nathan. Lack has podcast Larry's because he forces the revenue out of them and if they don't give the revenue he basically like extrapolates to math which is pretty simple. I usually they're like. Oh yeah you know. It's roughly that anyway. I digress so number five. Last Finale Hillary to my last recommendation so last one was phased out library. But most people don't know that you can use software such as at beat and you can look at what type of ads people running on Google for example Google display network. You can look at how they're spend his trending over time. What their top. Ads are and again as a advertiser as a copywriter. Your job is to have a swipe file like a library of ad copy or adds that you like and then from there you just restructure to whatever you're trying to do because if the ad worked on you then you should be thinking about okay. Why did that work me and how it might potentially work if you basically restructured a little bit and tailored it towards your audience right

"That like nineties. Suburban white male angst is so pretty. It's still I mean it's still going but I mean yeah it just like has just grown exponentially yeah okay. So the VW veto quickly became the cultural icon. Powering one of the most significant counterculture movements to date during the hippy movement. Driving a small foreign car was considered a form of protest. People were protesting inefficient gas guzzlers. That plagued our nation's highways at the time but specifically the movement fell in love with the Beatles older brother the VW microbus as James May describes in his series. The car of the people quote it was in California where this fascist fugitive found. Its new loved up identity. That's cool man. Are Loving me James Mayor. Yeah it'd be cool to hang out with. American never truly felt the huge impact at the beadle hat on society shirt. It was a symbol for antiwar sentiments. Sure the only car to have its own Disney movie franchise about itself. I did see cars. Lightning McQueen never heard of them can but America never truly felt the impact of the beetle. The same way it was felt in Europe. We never got to experience what it like to view the beadle as the prodigal son of motor transportation the final Porsche designed Beato. Sold in. America was in nineteen seventy nine but that wasn't the end of the Beetle. In fact country that truly felt the impact of the People's car was none other than our neighbor to the South Mexico. Few countries felt such an intense impact from the beadle in nineteen sixty four. The first Volkswagen factor is open in Mexico and the People's car entered the market as a testament to the country's love for the beetle. The very last Porsche designed type one beetle. Roll off the assembly line in Mexico on July thirtieth two thousand three days you know it was painted Aquarius blue. Although you couldn't really tell because of all the flowers placed on its hood that day. It was beetle number. Twenty one million five hundred twenty nine thousand four hundred sixty four at least of the original design. People in Mexico were devastated to see a car that revolutionized their lives so much finally go and an entire ad campaign was created just to wish the car farewell but you know at that time they had the PT. Cruiser was just starting production. Yeah you down to Mexico you see so many PD cruisers all over even in an tonight. I saw like Baja version like fat tire. I want one. That'd be sick. Of course the beetle wasn't actually dead. It was in the nineteen nineties that helped give new life to the missing beetle. After all the nineties were somewhat similar to the sixties sixties in their ideologies. People still love the car and in the years since it went off the market the Beatles reputation had only grown in one thousand nine hundred seven. Wolfsburg announced that they would begin. Production of the new beetle the biggest difference other than the updated styling and better emissions and safety and pretty much. Everything else was the engines location. It was in the front now and we w address that in there I is that read quote engines in the front but it's heart his in the same place. Oh really good. The new beetle remained on the US market from nineteen ninety seven through two thousand ten and sold a total of four hundred thousand. Four hundred seventy seven thousand three hundred forty seven cars One of my personal favorites of this generation beetle was the Malibu Barbie version six collector. There's also the New Beetle R. S. I which had the VR six. Yeah really in it and it was all wheel drive. It had the Four motion they made. There's two hundred fifty of 'em well yeah. I remember that car from like one of the grant charisma games and it's always been in. The back of my mind is like if I'm going to buy beetle. That one was it. Black with gold racing stripes. I remember it as like silver. Okay yeah but it's so second it's got like twenty spoke wheels to with like a really thin tire after the new beetle. Vw released a more updated version. Now just called the beetle. The Beatles shared the same platform as the Jetta and was a radical redesign from the previous generation as an attempt to try and recapture some of the original Beatles charm. It actually does look very much like the original beetle I didn't know there hatchbacks. Either One of our editors bridget huge Volkswagen Fan. She has one and I was amazed when I saw the hatch. That's my story amazed Nolan. I was I was. I didn't know I didn't know if you guys are listening to this Streaming me and Joe are looking knowingly at each other like we know this is and we're looking at each other amazed all right. I was surprised all day in September. Two thousand eighteen so hold back on the hyperbole breaks hyperbole in September of two thousand eighteen. Volkswagen announced that the beadle would cease production in July of two thousand nineteen and true to their word. The final third Gen Beetle finished production on the ninth of July. Two thousand nine hundred they were. They were not nuts. Honestly you know I think the beetle is probably bound to return at some point. Maybe do you think it's going to keep going like how xbox is like will? This is the three sixty. So this is the one. And then the XBOX wind like they're gonNA keep like. This is the new beetle. My Buddy Chris. In High School he had a lot of hand me down like his mom gave him her old stuff so like his cell phone was like a pink razor phone and then it's car in high school was like a light blue new Beatles. Girls Stop My boss Dairy Queen when I was sixteen Drove a yellow one with like flower wheels. Oh Yeah and she was super racist. I don't know what that says about. Yeah that's conflict there. Yeah The Volkswagen Beetle Story I think it's complicated right The car was designed to be a tool and realistically it has always served that purpose perfectly. I feel like it's represented a lot of things over the years like it's not only a tool was currency one point. It was a form of protest Just like its image has changed so much over the years but it's somehow remained. The same car is crazy sad on any other car. We'll have the same impact that the beetle did for very long time. Thanks for listening to pass gas podcast. If you don't know already go follow us on Youtube. We got a channel. That's Full of fun.

Hitler Your Reich. His bull barely even. You didn't even outlast the backstreet boys all right so one of the first start is a business under the new leadership was to change. The town's name no one wanted to live in the Nazi town one of strength through joy car so the town was officially renamed Wolfsburg after nearby castle two and a half months later just before his seventeenth birthday Porsche and many others. Others who are considered prominent figures in the Third Reich were summoned to Frankfurt for trial at least Ferdinand Porsche was some summoned as he was in Austria at the time and and the war ended. He was actually allowed to drive himself to the trials. Everyone else present was imprisoned. The trials were part of operation. Dustin a process where figures involved involved in a Nazi party were questioned one by one and it lasted nearly three months Albert speer. The official who hated him repeatedly testified. That Porsche was is quote a useless engineer. WHO had no way to know the greater plan and doesn't belong there still Kinda complicit though Kinda I lien did wrote around airplanes Hitler? Yeah I'm not so convinced but Porsche was released uncharged. He didn't realize how lucky he was as most men collected in operation. Dustbin were later sent to the Nuremberg trials to be trialed and executed but Porsche went back home to Zell in Austria. In the days after the war ended British Army Engineer Officer Major Ivan Hirst would describe the city of Wolfsburg with its population. Twenty five thousand as an abandoned construction site but hearst was famously optimistic more so than Porsche and he knew that the place can be set right again and his job was is to do just that a British army engineer was gonNA rebuild a German automaker. This is where things get fun. We can joke more now. uh-huh Hitler's Penis. Yes Sir okay. According to Time Dot Com. Okay Hitler Hitler you know. Oh time I've heard of it. Yeah I was there. Man of the year you in Greta Sunburn number. We're I was on half the covers. Shoes on half Hitler himself is believed to have had two forms of genital abnormality in undescended. undescended descended testicle and a rare condition called penile hypo spat IUS in. which the re throw opens on the underside of the penis? That's like A. I had a friend who had a Prince Albert and then took it out and then he had to sit down to pee thing. Dang through Shuna poked a hole in their people. Still get this. I'm I'm getting one week. We don't shame that Y- you'd probably fans out there with Pierce Genitalia more power to you. Honestly honestly Powell baby. We want to give a special more power baby to all of our fans prince. Albert's on KLAC okay. According to hirst some parts of the factory appeared as if they had not been touched in years but now is about to change as the British government had immediately ordered the production of twenty thousand Volkswagen. Kubo wagon style vehicles to help fill the country's immediate the need for transportation and fuel recovery hearst hated the idea of producing a war vehicle in a time of peace but he was about to get lucky while combing through an abandoned part of the factory. He discovered an originals people car in storage he immediately fell in love at first sight and sent it to the British government for review soon after he had the government's blessing to construct the people's car instead creation. The car was covered in red tape and bureaucratic debate. People were hesitant about building the car but I wasn't about to sit back and wait for final approval. He immediately began building them. Food and provisions were scarce in the factory but workers can incense hearst's dedication and they work their butts off to make the future of vw a reality the VW factory was marked as military surplus and they tried to sell it. Not Literally anyone who may be interested including Henry Ford but no one was interested in the dumpster. Fire that the factory appear to be so it was the British ministries problem. The fix. There is no better way. They thought than try to turn the Volkswagen into illegitimate company. The groundwork for the Volkswagen's finally being laid the British government began establishing an interest system of services and dealerships. Carl theorizing a rival of Porsche was at the factory during the a timer rebuilding as Porsche was trying to stay. As far away from it he worked with the government to establish what would be known as the quote. Volkswagen way focus on service. Before four sales gearing the factory towards the customers not towards profit any dealership equipped to both sell and service vehicles and classes were taught in both German in in English to train incoming dealership employees Ivan. Hirst was a real stickler for quality. He was often seen driving the car off the assembly line. That way he could be the the first person to quality control the vehicles he helped produce he poured his heart and soul into the factory and the workers apparently love them for it on his birthday. Volkswagen employees -ployees gave him a car that read quote for our energetic British officer. Major I the rebuilder of the Volkswagen Company by the end of nineteen forty six I had had managed to produce ten thousand people's cars for the ten thousand car. Two pictures were taken one featuring her standing in front of the car smiling the other taken without without management knowledge feature to sign that said ten thousand cars on an empty stomach. How can we endure after all Germany was still in massive disrepair after the war? Your factory workers run a one thousand twenty four calories per day diet. Yikes half of what Dietitians recommend for a healthy adult. Money was worthless worthless as there's basically no economy left but that's where the people's car really came into its own the primary market that remained after the fall of Hitler's empire was the black market barter and trade ruled and one people's car could be bartered for a hundred fifty tons of cement or two hundred thousand bricks at sea bill. The House. Yeah for ones are yeah lights food clothes etc.. All of these were paid for in Volkswagen's the economy was a bust and buying buying a car was the last thing on the mind of German citizens so this was the best used for them. That's crazy that they're using cars as money. Yeah their money just means nothing because their government collapse. Yeah I'm going to build this car in a factory and then trade you for something. That's pretty sweet. Germany was beginning to demonstrate a basic economy theory in Europe. When one major European country suffers all European countries suffer as well so quickly plans are made eight to help the country rebuild while things were looking better for Volkswagen? Things were only getting harder for Porsche. He had no way to know what had happened to his beloved factory to him. Another insurmountable wall had been erected preventing him from completing his dream of mass affordable transportation. Shortly after the war a porsche was invited to a spa town near the border inside France a few days later Porsche received a knock on the door excitedly opening the door. He discovered discovered a handful of French. Police standing there to greet him the seventy year. Old Porsche. His nephew and son-in-law were arrested by the French police for their involvement in forced forced Labour Aka slavery in the Nazi party after all he was complicit with the forced labor but in the same way here. Okay the the guy who he ran a factory in Nazi Germany during World War Two. They were slaves working at his factor. Yeah the wasn't just complicit he was actively involved involved. Yeah once again porsches dreams of his people's car at seemingly met its end and that's where we'll pick up next time on our conclusion. The Volkswagen Beetle have done a number of these episodes and diving. This deep into history makes it hard to like own million Volkswagen's on the big fan of brand and it's like you. I like I like even like it's like board award. Those guys back is to what I think Volkswagen's case I think it's okay for you. Don't have to cancel volkswagens teams. That probably would have helped honestly. But I don't know then our episode of this this Volkswagen Factory today ads blah blah blah. I think the the whole effort by Ivan Hirst to rebuild. It just really admirable and I mean it will seem excessive transformed it into the fortune branded help rebuild German so I mean as always it's complicated. It's any solace like these Nazis spent so long developing this car and then they didn't really get to enjoy it and so we're like. Oh this is a really good plan. Let's use this for good. Yeah all right so Yeah I think there's this episode is a little dark but also there's got better and next episode is going to be a lot more fun.

I can't get the phrase womb broom us you use it because it's the best we'll get back to more pass gas right now sponsors. I'd I'd like to take a second to think valvoline for sponsoring this week's episode. We Pass Gas love history and one of the most impressive things about valvoline is. Is there a long rich history. They've been around for over one hundred and fifty years making high quality motor oil. They actually filed the first patent for motor toil which makes them the original motor oil by definition. They're the only motor oil with a dedicated engine lab where smart ask scientists run on specialized engine tests and figure out all kinds of science stuff. That makes your engine work good since eighteen sixty six they haven't stopped innovating and it shows. Valvoline is responsible for the first high mileage oil the first racing oil and the first synthetic oil plant. That's a lot of frigging I guys. I've only had one and I and that's losing my virginity. All valvoline oils exceed the industry standards to provide ultimate protection for every engine. That's why some of the best in the BIZ. His use it like racing legend and my second best friend. Mario Andretti and my other best friend Chris. Forsberg they both fused valvoline but the biggest reason I like valvoline is because their headquarters are in Kentucky. Which is where? I'm frigging from ladies and gents so take it from the Kentucky Cobra. Valley is Great Motor Oil Valvoline guys support the companies that support on it. We could not make any of this stuff without without these people believing in us. Big thanks to simply say for sponsoring this episode simply safe home. Security is like getting commercial grade enterprise arise level security but for your own home think about the security fortune five hundred companies use. I think about that stuff literally all the time. It keeps me up at night. How do I get in there? How do we get all your secrets? They need to know. Police are going to be on the scene immediately. After Sir I break in this is exactly the kind of security you get with simplisafe. You might say my doors safe James. But what if a hamburglar Miller tries to smash through my window and steal my stuff. That's a good point. You're smart person. Hamburgers are cunning. Well good news. Simply safe has entry motion and glass break sensors inside as well as outdoor cameras and doorbell alerts to let you know. Someone's trying to steal your hard earned hamburgers.

We could not make these shows without these sponsors. We're not pocketing money. We're paying for for microphones and cameras and stuff holler anyway. The Volkswagen project had become a full enterprise quote. The town Craft Dick Freud wagon or strength through joy. Car Straight through joy car was created in the shadow of the factory in nineteen thirty eight by the time the first section was only eighty percent constructed. The town had already cost Germany. Over two hundred fifteen eighteen million reichsmarks with so much money invested already. The town was still only a single brick building a large open. hoster this is my town. Keep recalling Past episodes. Yeah but this reminds me of Ford Land. It's just like how. How do you fail so hard and just keep going because it's all about the belief like just pushing through will get you as all this is? Why Fire Festival happened? Because there's instances like this and like four lane just keep going just keep going. It's like you know what it sometimes you should just can quit Just in quit doing it. Not Everything is a good idea. Cut Your losses. It's like this his fault. This weird idea that like once you decide do something you should always keep doing it as a fine line. Yeah Look I did I. It was very successful in one part of my life so everything I come up with is going to be a great idea equally successful so they still. I had a long way to go. And they didn't have the money to get it done. One of Hitler's cronies and leader of the German Labor Department. Robert Ley loved the entire project and kept coming up with ideas. He threw himself into the work. Promoting Volkswagen project lay came up with a way of securing immediate funding. The strength through joy car savings book plan lay claimed that the program would help German citizens save their money people were given booklets and and they were. They would pay about two dollars a week or five rush marks to place a stamp in the booklet wants. The booklet was completely filled with stamps. It could be brought directly to the factory. The end redeemed for their Faria for Volkswagen. This makes me think like everyone's like man and five time machine go back in time. I'd kill Hitler but I do. I go back in time with like a nice printer. Print up a bunch of these stamps and I just give them out to everyone. Everyone and then everyone get a free car and it would bankrupt the Nazis or it would just mobilize all of them. uh-huh her maybe. I should leave. The time traveled to the professional start like disappearing Ono. The stamp program was covered with so much publicity and propaganda that the day the program launched lines to the nearest post office stretched around the block but immediately really that was like an iphone immediately. Sounds like an I own. A new iphone came out. Got Another screen on it. You waiting for the Stampe Stampe to immediately. I look stamp book. Is it worth it. MARQUESS brownies like flipping pages I kisses. It's Nice Book. Good Card stock Plenty of room for stance but as you can imagine there immediately. Some problems with the program German citizens were so poor at the time that five reichsmarks per week was just too much to afford. And if you missed a single weekly payment. The entire booklet was disqualified. So far what that's boy that's straight up that so the price was lowered to five reichsmarks per month which meant a family could earn their own Volkswagen in just sixteen years despite the obvious problems. Two hundred and fifty three thousand German citizens signed up before the war and another eighty. Three eight thousand. After the war started the program help stack a total of two hundred sixty three million reichsmarks straight into the strength through joy. Car Bank account by nine hundred thirty nine over twelve twelve million dollars was funnelled into testing of the Volkswagen. There's more adjustments testing and tweaking had to be done on this car than any other car in history. At this point there wasn't wasn't any extra bit of metal scene on the car. Everything in the Volkswagen served a function and I fought a flower hall. When the war finally came Porsche was shocked? He had not believed that war was even possible but only because he had been willfully oblivious of all the signs that Germany was preparing waiting for something big the area of the Volkswagen Factory town where Nazi officials were to live came with air raid reinforced. Basements as well as bunkers. His Volkswagen factories series floors and walls had been specifically reinforced with heavy concrete in order to withstand bombings. I mean at that point. Come on you're really turning a blind eye. Oh yeah like hey yeah. We got to like yelling. Cases Factory gets bombed. We gotTA reinforces. What do you mean is just in case Porsche wasn't wasn't the only one who is shocked? The factory never had a war plan and for the first year of war through nineteen forty more or less to sat idle. Porsche hoped that any day. Now the the war would end and the production of the People's car would finally begin. I just imagine him like in an empty office like spinning around in a chair. Like okay any day now. Only about thirty prototypes of his car had been built at this point and they were distributed primarily to Nazi officials for propaganda reasons even nineteen forty. Hitler's still gave the impression to Porsche. That the factory only serve one purpose to produce Volkswagen's Porsche was informed that the factory would never be used for the war effort and from that day on each time Nazi officials came knocking. Porsche would tell them to take it up with Hitler as slammed the door in our faces you know. It sounds like Hitler told Porsche. Russia wasn't going to happen but then why do you keep sending people. I don't know when it came to wartime production. Hitler's armament committees were only concerned with efficiency Porsche. And his factory factory They were not and that really pissed. The Minister of war production Albert.

I know baseball so they won the 2017 world series Because they were stealing signs and they had a camera. outfield zoomed in than it relayed a message to guy in the in the dugout. There would slam slam trash. Can I watch that video insane. You here it's like they literally we're able to track when there were cheating just by looking at the audio file so apparent because it's just like they're just some dude banging on a trash can or something to beings is like a slider offs. Need One. Bang is just like a change up. So it's like don't swing on the banks just swing on the fastballs and then they ended up winning the world series but they got fined five million dollars. That's nothing for a pro sports franchise like what are they spent on players. You know. That's one less than one person's salary and then they also didn't get like draft picks but there are stacked right now. It doesn't even matter anyways I could go on and on about baseball. Check out my baseball. podcast past pitch Fast Pitch I mean. That's just a word dude. We should have a podcast called fastball. Where we both talking about baseball? And the ninety s adult alternative rock band fastball seven. And it's always the cold out on the highway. Apparently that song is about these. Two old people who went on a road trip disappeared. Jesus Christ I was actually when I was like five years old. That song was that it's like the height and it was on the radio and I listened to and be like man. These parents like up and left their kids at their house. Yeah but it's like two old people every time you talk about what songs it makes me realize that I'd never listen to the League at all. I've heard that song a million we like I was in a cover band that played that I don't even know the Lira's we'll be right back with more of this story but I heard from our sponsors. Hey guys what's up it's Savannah O'Brien here. Sorry to interrupt the episode that you're listening to but I just wanted to take a quick second and talk to you about my podcast called killer instinct if you like true crime and I mean Emmy True Crime were talking serial killers unsolved cases solved cases missing persons cases and so much more than my podcast. Killer alert instinct is the perfect fit for you. I post new episodes every single Wednesday and go into detail about some of the most insane cases. You will ever hear of so take a second right now to go over to my page on killer instinct and subscribe to make sure you never miss an episode with that being said. I hope you enjoy the rest of your episode and I'll see you next time on killer instinct. Scientists still isn't over guys. Volkswagon is still being threatened by repercussions to this day. Over four years since the initial EPA charges were filed against them multiple eligible executives and employees of the company have been charged under arrested for their involvement in the scandal in two thousand eighteen. A senior manager sorry at Porsche in Germany was arrested tested for having knowledge that the diesel engines were incapable of passing inspection in September of two thousand nineteen the currency. Oh Volkswagen Herbert dice and chairman chairman. hans-dietrich Porch Baotou most German named as well as former CEO Martin winterkorn technical on. I don't want to Seal Mountain Beer Stein. My name is gone. SAUERKRAUT DOC. Yeah those guys are all headed criminal charges for in their for their involvement as well they're being charged for allegedly waiting to inform investors about the automakers acres emissions cheating. That's another hard play. I mean not a hard place. If you'RE GONNA lie the NARDY putting yourself in a hard place anyway because like all these huge companies they all answer to their shareholders. There's no easy way to tell them. Hey so we're kind of cheating right now with this whole thing. There's so many the decisions that someone made to break the law there at just like so many people involved. Like if you're gonNA commit a crime this is a very bold crime emit because then every time you lied to somebody. That's you breaking along if you're talking about money don't lie about money or I'll put you in jail. It's a lot of moving parts where it's like nobody nobody snitch. And there's like thousands of employees secrets. Did you see that mean. That was like the children in the cornfield field. Making an era where the suspect like ran. Oh Yeah While the US Securities and Exchange Commission is already suing Volkswagen like an and vinegar corn over similar charges for massive fraud as well a recent quarterly report revealed that the company has set aside over a billion euro's towards legal provisions In a large chunk of it is prepared for all these ongoing cases so they I mean yup wonder like how much of that legal war chest as we call it Tom Could work was knowingly. Set aside for like all these huge cases this I mean a billion euros for lawsuits. Yeah the main like two thousand thirteen before they got caught. They're like no. We're just GONNA like set aside a couple billion dollars in case something happens. Yeah I mean they probably set it aside like after the first round I have to leasing this time. You guys like. We're kind of caught off guard and a little bit of cash poor the last time we did this. We're going to do it again. One thousand percent going to start to lie about engines for sure. You're not to bring attention to my last name again. But you know my ancestors put corn in the silo for Venter is kind of the same thing. A major criticism towards the company has been their inability to make amends for the scandal. The scandal affected more than just the US market to the emission cheating sheeting design was sold globally as especially popular in Europe in the UK. A major class action lawsuit has been continuously raging against the German carmaker since the initial initial accusations came to light almost ninety thousand claimants are demanding. Some sort of compensation or compensation sorry for purchasing VW vehicles during the scandal as of January. Second Volkswagen was still in talks with German motorists over compensation for their massive defrauding of the German car markets. The class action suit is among the first of its kind in Germany actually and wasn't part possible due to a new draft law sign in two thousand eighteen that allows consumer rights groups to represent customers just by taking companies to court. Wow It seems like Germany is very far behind in that regard. People are obviously very pissed about this and despite happening years ago now. They're still waiting around for Volkswagen to make some amends in the end the This entire controversy isn't only about how much money VW had to pay. Hey to try to make things better while a whole lot of bad things revealed because of this a whole lot of good things came out of it to the biggest thing that this entire skin did was open our eyes as as consumers to threat of pollution not only from diesel cars but all cars while only two percent of US cars are diesel. Surprising tidbit I think that's his as passenger cars. The rule breaking a much more severe consequences in Europe the European market has been flooded with diesel cars and consumers have been encouraged to buy them for a long time when the scandal broke over half of all car sales in Europe were diesel in London. It was found that nearly ninety seven percent of the two hundred fifty plus diesel diesel models on the road were in violation of emission standards. And not just volkswagens and two thousand fifteen alone. One study found that the failure to comply with emission standards words directly caused six thousand eight hundred early deaths the most up-to-date numbers demonstrate that general pollution not just pollution from diesel date contributed to the deaths of approximately one thousand people a day in Europe. The breaking of the scandal revealed to us as consumers that some carmakers are willing to jeopardize our lives just to save a few dollars while openly dodging the law. I just want to mention you know as the Volkswagen as the DUBBER In the rooms big DUBBER dubber. Volkswagen screwed up very dirty very dirty deeds. But it's not just Volkswagen. It's rich guys It's all these car. Companies like Opel Chevy Renault dime layer Fiat Mitsubishi Renault. All those was companies were caught manipulating their emission. I one thing I don't really understand how they're getting these stats. That like thousand people all day from this. Is there a specific like ailment that they can tie directly back to Knox Snowflake Syndrome roll. Call so I think inadvertently despite all the bad things that came from this. It's really really raised demand awareness for electric cars Volkswagen. They've made a lot of waves. I think it was was the last year. Two thousand eighteen sleeping when they set all those records with their idea are the pikes peak electricity. The electric car rules. And they're they're gonNA. They're not gonNA participate dissipate any petrol powered motor racing or sports. But that when people are like oh Volkswagen okay big loss but we'll tell you porsche shah they own Bentley The LAMBORGHINI Lamborghini Naughty Naughty Naughty. Yeah so I mean that's GonNa have a huge ripple effect on the entire on everything but I just have to wonder if they're being so aggressive about this because they got caught one thousand percent. This is a huge age. Pr Thing you know. Yeah it's this really like. We're we're as media people focused on the automotive industry. Hey.

"And the SEC officials were privy to those meetings to those discussions early on. They've been discussing issues with folks wagging sense, then but it wasn't folks. Funding does not appear to have known that the. The criminal complaint was coming. But it didn't include a note in its annual report, which was published this week that said there was an ongoing investigation at the SEC. And so, you know, maybe folks fog new bit more than its saying today, but the news from the about the SEC investigation did come as a surprise to most people what kind of reparations does the SEC want from Volkswagen. Well, that's that's the big question is the individual fines seemed to be fairly small. But there is the provision that the SEC could come and say, well, look if you had if this information had been known, and if you were being above board with with investors when you were selling these bonds, the interest that you paid on these bonds would have been much higher. And so investors were cheated out of out of interest. And. Basically what they'll try to do is still trying to calculate some. Hypothetical profit that the that the company gained from the from selling these bonds undervalued and in order to try to determine what investors have lost and define will be based on a formula that will try to find out what that number is William let's go back Volkswagen in two thousand five wanted to launch a new push into the US auto market with a new generation of diesel engines, which was a niche market in the United States. But wasn't there a problem trying to comply with emissions rules and making clean diesel engines? Yes. And this is what the SEC is basing its claim on basically saying that in two thousand seven already VW's management. The former CEO Martin Winterkorn were involved in a number of meetings with their top engineers where they were aware that these engines were not performing properly that first of all the didn't meet. Emission standards in the United States. And so even with all the technology in. These diesel engines, they were not meeting emission standards in the United States. And Secondly, the engines appear to be running in two modes and offline and online mode or off cycle and on cycle mode. So there was it was already clear that there was some kind of. Performance during the test and performance after the test which diverged and then in two thousand fourteen a research group called the ICT with a cl- an environmental research group commissioned a West Virginia university to do as a study of group of vehicles and two of those vehicles were folks logging vehicles, and they found that the two diesel vehicles from Volkswagen had elevated diesel knocks emissions. Nitrogen oxide, kind of soot and toxic emissions diesel engines produce, and and that it was much higher than than usual, and that kind of kicked off a series of events that led to a long investigation by the EPA and a long cover up by people within VW, which is what VW ultimately pleaded guilty to write and the SEC as you write alleges that the clean diesel cheat. Was accelerated after Mr. Winterkorn became CEO in two thousand seven and you write that Mr. vendor Cornyn? Nearly a dozen former Volkswagen employees have been diverted by US attorneys. There are two former executives who've pleaded guilty, and they're in jail in the US, and apparently most of the people indicted or German citizens, and we can extradite them here. Right.

"Start your engines and air off back to far auto expert, Nick miles. This is KOMO news a wound Silliman the phone with us. We're talking about these tesla model threes. This is the new the VW BMW VW electric car which is proposed. So where we left off Anton was thirty five thousand dollars for the base model three plus an extra five thousand four or five thousand four all wheel drive, which will take it to around forty thousand dollars. If you add the same for the VW, it's still about eleven thousand dollars difference. So we're talking about eleven thousand dollars in the United States. But this model the model is actually coming to the states will that be priced about the same as the twenty thousand dollars or the vehicle is coming to the states. You think it'll be more. The price of the vehicle. John states will be more because it will probably it may have all wheel drive a standard because it will be a shooting of sorts and also because it is heavier larger vehicle the base battery may be a little bit larger as well. That's smaller vehicle that starts at twenty three thousand dollars in Europe. Probably will have a forty eight kilowatt hour battery and the thirty thousand dollar tests. I will probably have a fifty three kilowatt hour battery. So whereas the Volkswagen at that lower price will go somewhere between one hundred and eighty eight hundred eighty five miles on a charge the base, tesla model three will probably do two hundred and twenty miles per charge. So there's a little bit of a different inspect there. But one thing you need to understand too. Is that many the hierarchy of prestige level of electric vehicles? Most of the budget vehicles that we have seen today to front wheel drive based doesn't matter whether it's Chevrolet volt the Nissan leaf various offerings from Hyundai and Kia, and if you other companies like Honda, they're really only been to today that I've been rear wheel drive based in the BMW, I three and all the tesla models now comes along Volkswagen and offers you a rear wheel drive platform. So the spiritual. Successor to the Volkswagen's of your back in the forties. Fifties and sixties where we had the the Beadle as well as they hit the, Dan. And I think that that will I think be a bit of a differentiator in the market in terms of saying this is this is a bit of a premium offering think of it like a little bit like a BMW, I three that just a lot larger that can hit really five large adults and much larger piece of luggage. The has no provision in the back Friday range extended or anything like that. It is a pure easy under all circumstances. So that brings me onto the next subject, which is kind of an easy thing to talk about. But consumer reports came out with their reliability test recently, and the interesting the a lot of companies moved up and down on that many making it into the top ten now one of the most reliable vehicles on the market. But the interesting thing was that BMW's most reliable car is the I three that makes number one reliable car. But tesla is the from the. The bottom for reliability. Yeah. They've had it all sorts of issues at test level with you know, sometimes the door handles will present themselves. Sometimes they won't sometimes the door will close sometimes they won't sometimes they will open. Sometimes they won't open. Of course. Sometimes the electric motorists have to be swapped out. I have a couple of friends friends friends that about four motorists walkouts over the last five years and sometimes the batteries shows. They don't die because there are Warren now, it's because of reduced capacity. That hasn't been an issue at all. But sometimes they just Diana way because of a glitch somewhere, and.
