What’s the future of EVs in Australia, Why is Telstra developing an AFL-watching tablet? Vertical Hold Ep 396
We’re continually told that EVs are “the future” of motoring, but what’s the picture like in Australia right now — and what’s likely soon? Why is Telstra developing a tablet for watching sports?

Update: Unfortunately there’s an issue with this week’s episode — we’re blaming the technical gremlins. If you’re listening through most major podcast platforms it should run around 54 minutes; if you’ve been served an 8 minute version we do apologise, but it should hopefully feed through the correct version to you directly. The player below may show 8 minutes but should play the full 54 minute show. If not, this link should take you to the 54 minute Pocketcasts version for iOS or Android respectively.
EVs are said to be the future of cars — but when will this future arrive in Australia? Will there be more “affordable” models any time soon, and are we getting hung up on the wrong metrics when we think about them?
Meanwhile, Telstra’s showing off a sports-specific tablet aimed at making AFL games more accessible to the blind. Is this a good idea for following the footy, or just a way for Telstra to show off its 5G network?
