So Insightful!

It’s obvious David puts extraordinary effort in covering salient topics and finding guests that are authentic and truly care about being a positive force in this world - the insights they bring to bear are still mind-blowing every. single. time.

Promoting “hydrogen economy”

I can’t believe how ignorant the guests on this carbon obsessed show are.

I listen just to hear their doom and gloom, along with their useless carbon credit schemes and “green hydrogen” garbage.

The fact most guests don’t even mention nuclear as a solution is a complete and total embarrassment to this podcast and its host.

Most thorough market analysis

Brilliant series addressing the short term and long term energy strategies as a consequence of geopolitical inaction & incompetencies..

Great questions to great guests with solid honest answers!
