Summary

A quick look at current US political events, COVID-19 response, and the future of transport with Anna Kominik from Wisk.

Show Notes

We’re recording this episode from an empty office in Wellington’s Central Business District at a really strange time as the threat of Covid-19 causes fear and worry. We take a quick look at current US political events, which have really been dominated by the COVID-19 response, New Zealand’s response to date, and then talk to my guest - Anna Kominik, Country Director for Wisk, about the future of transport. Anna leads a multinational team bringing the world’s first self-flying electric air taxi to market.
