Could be better

There are some podcasts you wait for every episode, unfortunately this is not one of them. Started out well, but the content and the dribble between presenters has sent it down hill fast. So over hearing about EVs almost every episode too.
Seems like there is a lack of preparation, with no more than a rough outline, then two car “experts” having a chat around the topic.
