Hey there Elephant in the Room listeners, if you love the show then you know the election is literally five days away including Tuesday. Holy Moly! For all my devout listeners, this has been quite a ride as I have been doing this show for almost four semesters now and we finally have reached the climax. Clearly, first up on the show is a quick run down of the latest election news as well as a brief overview if some Arkansas ballot initiatives. Next up, I talk about the Affordable Care Act and how premiums have been skyrocketing at the end of Obama’s presidency. Third on the show, I dive into Elon Musk’s new solar roof shingles and what they mean for green energy. Then, a gas pipeline in Alabama burst this week, wreaking havoc on the east coast gasoline supply. Is it finally time to admit onshore pipeline transport is unsafe? Lastly, a quick but funny story involving a woman and a laser… All these stories and rocking tunes, today on The Elephant in the Room. If you missed the show, feel free to snag the podcast here.
