A Week on Drive by Charlie

Each week, I bring you an audio summary of the best (and worst) of the Drive show – If you’re not able to listen live then this page will make life much easier for you as I’ve grabbed all the interesting bits in handy “clip” form…

Guests / Features
On Monday’s show, I caught up with Pete Sipple, our resident gadget expert who gave us an update on the recent issues with Amazon’s Alexa and its tendancy to “cackle” at odd times.

Hear Pete talk about the Alexa issues – and click here for his previous feature on Alexa.

On Thursday’s show, Alex Thurgood and Victoria Copeland were in the studio to talk about their fundraising efforts for The Maddi Foundation. That’s available on this page here.
