🎙️ The Drive at Five with Fiona Alston, Cate Lawrence, Dan Taylor and Robin Wauters - Episode 26

Well alright, alright, alright. Spring has sprung and what would a week without a little controversy be? This week we're looking at Hedonova and Carbonomy, or not, the JET and some not-so-nice labour actions, ridiculous funding round names, SerenityNow, DeepDrive's neck breaker of a new EV drivetrain, and Ferrari getting h4x0r3d, again. And one more thing: a Neobanks Report to end all neobanks reports.

Keen listeners will recognise that we've taken a staple of the show and moved it from the very end to the very beginning. Because lulz.
