Future transport = high speed & low emissions. The big hype around Hyperloop. With Josh Giegel.
Show Notes

Just a fast train? It’s so much more than that. The European Commission want to reduce transportation-related greenhouse gas emissions by 90% by 2050. Hyperloop will play a key role in this effort.

Hyperloop was born from Elon Musk’s concept of high speed travel and “the best thing short of actual teleportation”. Initial skeptisim turned outright curiosity eventually brough Josh Geigel to CEO to build transport for the new age.

Not only can it get you from Paris to Berlin in an hour, with the development of green steel, green concrete, and being 100% electric, it will be transformative for the climate emergency.

Josh Giegel, CEO of Virgin Hyperloop, joins Niko Woischnik, founder of TOA, on the this week’s episode. Josh was on the first passenger test of the Hyperloop in late 2020. When can you and I ride the Hyperloop? It’s closer than you think.

Josh and Niko discuss the role that governments play, how this will transform travel in India, and how we need to showcase to technology averse public that this really is the future.
