    The CPO Episode II

    This is episode 140 of EV Musings a podcast about renewables, electric vehicles and things that are interesting to electric vehicle owners.
    On the show today we'll be looking at Charge Point Operators.
    I wanted to apologise to anyone expecting this to be the round Table Episode at the end of the season.  For various timing and logistical reasons, I wasn’t able to get this organised in time to be a part of this current batch of 20 episodes.  So I now need to sit and work out whether I want to do an additional one-off episode to present the round table or leave it until the next season and we bookend the season with a round table to start and a different one to end.
    Or do I just skip it for this season?

    138 - The Councils Episode

    This is EV Musings a podcast about renewables, electric vehicles and things that are interesting to electric vehicle owners.
    On the show today we'll be looking at the local councils and their differing levels of interest and involvement in EV charger rollout.
    We’re heading towards the end of the season with some hard-hitting investigative reporting - or the closest we can get to that from a small room in South-East England.
    This is a bit of a long one, I’m afraid, so you might want to take it in smaller chunks.

What a fantastic find

I’m just about to purchase my first EV .. electric car … and this podcast is so informative and exactly what I need to answer many questions.
Gary is so insightful and has asked and answered many of my concerns.. I have started listening from the first episode to make sure I get the best advice. Anyone thinking of an EV purchase should listen and pass this in to those that are still not convinced this is the way forward.

Only just found the pod

Only just found the pod this summer and have listened to the entire back catalogue. Great work and research into the world of EV ownership, just put an oder in for my first EV along with my first home charger and Gary gave me a hand pointing me in the right direction. Great pod

Interesting and informative

A great podcast to listen to help understand the rapid changes taking place in EV travel in the UK and beyond.
