Fantastic podcast for those that like to learn and are interested in the oil and gas industry. Each episode seems to highlight a different portion of the oil and gas industry and the show really demonstrates the wide number of opportunities the industry offers. This podcast is a go to when I’m feeling uninspired or burnt out.

I find myself going back and re-listening to old episodes multiple times.

Can’t hear Alex

Great content but they need to get Alex a better mic or maybe have him speak closer to it. I can’t hear Alex at all most of the time and am surprised there was no QC done before the podcast is released
