An informative and easy listen
As an energy professional who has recently moved to Calgary, I find this podcast super helpful in staying abreast of emerging energy issues in general, but often also in the context of the Albertan economy and landscape. The topics are diverse, hosts and guests very knowledgeable, and each podcast I’ve listened to to date (several) has been very clear, even when on topics I don’t have much background on. A great tool to keep a pulse on energy issues on an easily digestible level, while pointing out key items that are worth further investigation for those of us who would like/need to dig a little deeper on some of the discussed concepts. I would definitely recommend to anyone looking to learn more about/ stay up to date on diverse energy issues!
