    Please raise the volume level on your excellent podcast, if you can. Hard to hear with regular iPod headphones. Also, some weird discrepancies with your voices on this episode. Good stuff, though.

    Joe and Dean thanks so much for talking about a very important marketing subject that no other marketers talk about. The Tesla Motors example was awesome and I appreciate you share the email written by the owner of the company and how he elegantly handled the situation and turned it into a great marketing strategy to protect the company and its image but also the shareholders investment.
    I also heard the Tony Robbins interview you two did and how Tony had a situation involving negative publicity and how he met the situation head on and addressed the facts as well to disolve the situation. These are real issues that can have a dramatic affect on one’s business, so I again compliment the both of you for discussing a negative situation and how to turn that situation into a benefit by being honest, attacking the situation head on immediately, presenting the facts of the situation and then proving why your product or service is the best because others products or services would not have performed as well if they were in that particular situation. Well done guys!
    Thanks again!

    Interesting podcast. I have a Tesla it’s OK but I don’t like the fact that I have to remember to charge the battery. I would prefer a Ferrari. Tesla is not all that great, you should stop sucking up to Elon Musk. Read these:
