Good O&G news source

I’m just a layperson that doesn’t work in oil and gas and I use OGTW to get my oil and gas news. Usually around 30 minutes a week, an episode helps me understand what’s going on in energy (and hey, we all use energy). I find this “citizen journalism” to be much more useful than the old way of listening to activists… er, I mean “journalists”… tell me what’s happening and why it matters. We live in amazing times when we can listen to people doing actual work on the ground. Mark is obviously passionate and knowledgeable about O&G and it’s great to listen to someone who enjoys their craft as much as him. I don’t always understand what Mark and Paige are talking about but that’s ok. There’s nothing wrong with learning as you listen to news; arguably, that’s the way it should be. I’m thankful to be living in times where I can hear industry news, straight from practitioners. Maybe I’m the only normie that listens to this podcast, but I suspect not. Mark and Paige are doing good work, not just for O&G professionals, but for folks who want tangible info on what’s happening. In terms of politics, Mark is prone to “both sides”-speak, so I can only take him at his word. But to me, it’s clear only one political party wants to keep us energy poor so I hope he’s calling it as he sees it, not bowing to pressure.
(Note to Apple; I can’t make paragraphs in reviews - what the heck?! - sorry for the wall of text. I tried.)

Great show

I’ve been working in Oil & Gas pipelines for 20 years and continue to learn about our enormous and important industry because of great shows like these. There are many podcasts to choose from but few, if any, are delivered by people as passionate and knowledgeable as Mark and Paige. You might find their journalistic objectivity wonders when it comes politics (winking emoji) but that pales in comparison to the vast knowledge and on-point perspectives of our industry that listeners benefit from. Mark’s take on energy mix evolution is insightful, and in my mind, spot on. A true highlight of any O&G professional’s week - thoroughly recommend it.

Very informative

Love the podcast, been a listener since Paige came on board! You both do a great job explaining such a complex industry in a way people outside of our industry can understand. Keep up the good work! I’m a national fuel broker and I look forward to the episode’s!
