Fantastic podcast and awesome company. If you’re looking for anything DC Power related or anything in relation to critical loads, this is your company! Massive fan of the guys over here in Australia! I share the podcast with everyone in the industry over here that I can! I even use Episode 16 (‘How to Walk Out of a Battery Room…Alive’) as a form of induction for new guys. Looking forward to attending at BattCon in the future! Keep up the good work!
