Insightful history of oil podcast. Highly recommended.

Superb. Surprising interesting. Great voice & presentation. All History enthusiasts - CHECK IT OUT
Please, please tell me you aren't stopping the series with Mossadegh.
I logged in from a very slow connection in Ushauia, Argentina just to tell you how great I think your podcast is and ask you if you will continue it. This is the first time I'veever commented on podcast and it's to ask you to end your hiatus. Love your show.
To all other listeners/browser - CHECK THIS OUT.
You might think a History of Oil sounds like too refined a topic (excuse the pun) and too specialist too interest you.
If you're anything like me I promise you'll love it.
Importantly, in addition to suprisingly fascinating material this podcaster has a great voice and nice pacing. I've checked out a lot of podcasts and it is hard to get the balance right between dull recitation and overly jumpy, casaul, informal style. To my ear this guy has it down to a tee.
A great listen and I hope there is more to come.
