    Hello Mark,

    I am a student at Oklahoma University, School of Law’s Master of Oil and Gas program.  I just found your podcast and I have listened to every single one since the beginning on Spotify. It took me about 3 weeks but I learned so much. I just joined the Street Team. I heard one podcast where you would like to have students share their experiences  in programs. I am a non-traditional student who is coming into the industry and I volunteer to be on the show. I signed  up for the Street Team and I look forward to getting more involved.

    I have an international background and I love hearing your perspective on the way they do Energy in other countries. I have lived on 4 continents and I have seen energy done in several different ways. Thank you for all that you do and sharing your knowledge.

    Regards, Sheree Crow  

    Great show and great hosts! 

    ⭐ ⭐ ⭐ ⭐ ⭐ Fantastic show! Really like the show in terms of how it covers the industry! The industry is really a marvel and it’s a shame how the new generation are not even open to working in it. How would you suggest making the industry attractive to people in their early 20s? HoustonBanker via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 09/13/20

    ★★★★★ Outstanding Podcast! 

    Fantastic way to keep track of the happenings in the industry, they’ve truly been a light house in the storm since everything went to crap this year. Mark and Paige’s positive, but honest vibe definitely rubs off and makes my day better.

Great Podcast for Oil and Gas

Amazing podcast! Best news on the oil and gas industry from around the world. The new host did not know what GDP was, however, still a remarkable show.

MaryD99 ,

Good podcast, need to tone down the politics.

I’ve listened to this podcast quite a bit and it’s useful for oil and gas industry news. Sounds quality is good and there’s a lot to like about the podcast. Unfortunately the presenters have strong political views which they repeat over and over again.

According to the presenters:
- Academics don’t understand climate change and the public and government have been misled by a big conspiracy (presenters of course understand it much better, they even tried to explain why the scientists were all wrong). Oil companies should stop ‘giving in to public pressure’ and ‘push back’ on all measures to reduce the use of fossil fuels.
- War in the Middle East is coming and is going to be fantastic for the oil industry.
- America is an island of intelligence surrounded by idiots (in that case he was referring to Canada and Mexico but other comments show similar supremacy beliefs over Arabs, Europeans, and even Californians).

I’m an oil and gas professional and I do believe that there is a place for the oil and gas industry in the future, but their eyes closed approach to the changing world is astonishing.

valued information on a broad range of topics

Thank you for the continuous effort in making this brilliant podcast. I learn so much from you guys discussing all the different topics and issues, a lot of which I didn't even know existed!
