E8: Nikola Tesla

Nikola Tesla was a power-player in the current war, where General Electric and Westinghouse fought over how America would get electricity.  Tesla contributed to the development of the alternating-current electrical system that’s widely used today and discovered the rotating magnetic field. Carter and Vanessa talk about Tesla’s mysterious visions of inventions, the strange illness he suffered, and how the kind soul gave up millions of dollars and died penniless.
