In this edition of This Week in Business History, Kelly Barner takes listeners on a surprisingly colorful journey through the history of windshield wiper inventions and innovations. From a sleety wide on a trolley can in turn of the 20th century New York City, to a clever vaudeville actress and her daughter, to a champagne fueled accident on one inventor’s wedding night, we’ll follow the progression in windshield wipers from the earliest design to Tesla’s window cleaning plans for the future.
