Excellent, Informative Show

I have only listened to a couple episodes but I’m low key hooked. Justin does a great job with the guests and you can feel his passion for the O&G industry. I’m not an O&G by any means, but I am curious now thanks to this podcast!! Keep spreading the word Justin!

NashTX ,
