Tech commentators Stephen Fenech and Trevor Long, have launched an EV podcast Two Blokes Talking Electric Cars.
The podcast is in addition to their existing podcast portfolio which includes Two Blokes Talking Tech.
That series was launched after the two tech reporters were brought together by Mediaweek for a podcast over 13 years ago. That podcast has become a staple in the tech world and boasts over 600 episodes.
The new show has attracted commercial partnerships with NRMA Insurance and Uniden Dashcams. The series explores the world of electrical vehicles (EVs).
Both Long and Fenech are passionate EV owners and advocates.
Fenech has been an EV owner for more than five years and said he sees this show as an opportunity to use his experience and knowledge to educate and inform those looking to buy their first EV.
“We want everyone, from EV enthusiasts to curious newcomers, to feel welcome on our podcast,” said Fenech. “Our goal is to demystify the world of electric cars and empower listeners to make informed decisions about their next vehicle.”
Long comes to the show with much experience with EVs, having driven almost every model released in Australia over the past decade.
He has also made EV road trips including one memorable journey from Brisbane to Adelaide with former colleague Chris Bowen.
“The electric car revolution is here, and it’s moving faster than ever,” said Long. “Two Blokes Talking Electric Cars will provide listeners with honest, informative, and entertaining insights into this dynamic space.”
