Show Notes

Alex and James are back for, sadly, the last time as co-hosts, to cover lots of great EV and charging news since our last episode. As you’ll hear in the introduction, James has accepted a role with an EV charging company which means that he won’t be able to continue to co-host the show with Alex. The good news is that Alex has found a great new co-host and we’ll be moving the show entirely over to being a ‘The Interface’ production.

I, James, would like to take the opportunity to extend my thanks to Alex for reaching out many months ago to start this show and for all his wonderful knowledge. We’ll still be seeing Alex from time-to-time here on Crossed Wires, and I wish Alex and new co-host, Jim, the best of success for what I’m sure will continue to be a great EV resource.

Do you have thoughts on the stories we’ve covered this month, or maybe some EV news you’d love to highlight? We’d love to hear from you, so please send a note over to [email protected], leave a comment on the post, or join the discussion over on our Discord server
