LiSTNR and carsales announce long-term podcast partnership
LiSTNR today announced a long-term podcast partnership with Carsales, with the first of four podcast series to launch this month.
The podcast titled, Watts Under the Bonnet: The Electric Vehicle Podcast, delves into everything electric vehicles as interest grows in the category.
Watts Under the Bonnet will be co-hosted by well-respected motor racing journalist, commentator and host of LiSTNR’s Rusty’s Garage, Greg ‘Mr Motorsport’ Rust, and Carsales’ Consumer Editor, Nadine Armstrong.
With new episodes each month, Watts Under the Bonnet will keep listeners up to date with the latest developments in the world of electric vehicles.
The podcast series allows listeners to stay in the know about the hottest releases, put their minds at ease as common EV myths are busted, and hear from people who have swapped the bowser for the battery.
The launch episode of Watts Under the Bonnet tackles the issue of ‘range anxiety’, and features champion Kiwi race driver Simon Evans who won the Jaguar I-Pace e-Trophy title, which is an internationally recognised series for one-make Jaguar all-electric road cars.
Carsales will launch an additional three podcasts on LiSTNR, which will be announced soon.
