First and foremost, congratulations, Ryan, on you our your wife's newly adopted daughter, Isabella, from Columbia.  What a wonderful, beautiful thing!  (enjoy the bask of new parenthood- I wont scare you too much yet, but eventually, they become TEENS!!!)

Sorry, Bo, but Juan Valdez is a fictional character according to Wikipedia:  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Juan_Valdez

The 100+mpg estimate you read must be a mis-quote- the following article has Toyota claiming 65mpg in combined mode, compared with the 50mpg of the 2010 Prius:  http://www.autoweek.com/article/20090202/CARNEWS/902029995

LOL!  Really enjoyed the Charlie Brown spoof!

Also, thank you Shannon for the excellent research that you provide about the articles and studies brought up during this podcast.

I have a lot of confidence in EESTOR eventually delivering, as you already well know, but I must disagree with you Bo- it will take a good two years to start to see EESU's in large numbers in EV's.  It is not just the engineering and electronics (oh- and their contract with LG-Chem for Li-Ion batteries)- the testing, especially the crash testing, will be extensive, especially initially, due to the high voltage contained within each EESU- people are going to want to know that it is safe, and GM, and others, are going to want to know it is safe to avoid lawsuits over such a new technology.

Lasty- y'all have a very, merry Christmas guys and gals!

OK the Charlie Brown EV thing is your best one yet.  For those of us with a Christian background, the parallels are very well drawn out.  I had my wife and two kids listen to it, everyone loved it, or at least stayed until the end.

Wow. I like the fact that the chevy volt is coping with technology by connecting to blackberry applications. I just hope the center caps can adjust with it.
