Cars without gas-ZETA’s bold initiative for 100% electrification

January 31st, 2021 · Comments

Once upon a time, we were promised a future with "flying cars". Now countries around the world (including the new Biden Administration) and our own State of California are promising a world where all new cars will be electric by 2030. Sound just as fantastic or unfeasible?

Listen as our host Bryan Thompson (10 year veteran of Nissan's SoCal design studio) talks with the industry group leading this charge.  The ZERO EMMISSIONS TRANSPORTATION ASSOCIATION (ZETA) and their bold initiative to insure that all new vehicles are 100% electric by 2030.  And how they are working with Congress and leading manufacturers to pave the way for this to really happen.  

Right here on this week's edition of DRIVEN BY DESIGN. On Orange County's only community radio station, www.OCTalkRadio.biz. Streaming live from the University of California's BEALL APPLIED INNOVATION CENTER.

A Gay Man’s Guide to Life by Britt East

January 24th, 2021 · Comments

Today our Driven Designer, Bryan Thompson (10 year veteran of Nissan's SoCal Design studio) takes another detour to highlight some LGBT issues again. Not only talking about his ongoing SHINE initiative to shine a light on domestic abuse within this community, but to talk with an author Britt East, who's written A Gay Man's Guide to Life.  Designed to give gay men (in his words) a leg up on life by sharing his own journey as a way to guide and inspire others.

It's part of Bryan's series of shows that not only spotlight LGBT issues but shine a light on how people are using this cloistered Covid time to be creative and tackle new projects.  To take a look at what's driving people during these difficult times.  So ride along! Right here on Orange County's only community radio station, www.OCTalkRadio.net.
