#24 - Electric cars and the future of transport

33 mins | Aug 8, 2021

Today's episode from 9th August 2021. First this Monday, whilst Teslas and other electric cars glide around on our streets today, the road to how they got here is a long and forgotten one. We delve into the history of the electric car and find out what problems they might cause for our future. Later on, we explore why positive thinking might be futile. To every age dogged with pollution, accidents and congestion, the transport solution for the next generation seems obvious – but the same problems keep coming back. The push for electric cars has been going for a lot longer than most of us think. The failures of the past might tell us something about the future. Positive thinking and visualising success can be counterproductive – stress and dissatisfaction are feelings that will never go away for good. Luckily, as psychology and neuroscience specialist David Robson explains, other strategies for fulfilment are available. Here, he breaks them down. Wake up with Curio is a different kind of morning show that gives you the context behind the news and gets you motivated for the day ahead, every Monday - Friday.
