Best electric cars, San Diego Comic Con, and why Engineering is more important than ever - Pocket-lint podcast ep 12

Season 1, Ep. 12

In recent years, the world's biggest comic convention has become a way for the big Hollywood studios to detail what they've got in store. That means a flood of trailers and sneak peeks at the biggest new shows, plus star-studded panels where they detail and tease information.


And Pocket-lint Senior Editor of News and Features Rik Henderson joins me to discuss all the big announcements from the next steps in the Marvel universe to Star Trek Picard. 


Later on in the podcast, I talk to Rhys Morgan, Director of Engineering and Education at The Royal Academy of Engineering about how the Academy is working to get more people involved in engineering, and Editor Chris Hall tell me his best electric car picks to drive at the moment.
