Great show, relatable couple
This show is a great introduction to self-driving car technology. It is short enough that I can listen to it on my way to work once a week, but they cover a good amount of topics and are entertaining. Robert and Zaira are a fun couple to listen to. Don't expect any hardcore engineering talk, but they chat about laws, philosophy, pop culture, tech, etc. I highly recommend this show... especially since I'm the host. Please leave a review and share our show. Thanks. -Robert Solano.
The best podcast ever
I had no clue about self-driving cars until I started this podcast. It is a great intro to this really interesting topic.
