    Episode 149 - Josh is mad at the world | Pioneer CEO advocates regulation | OPEC?

    This week, Josh is mad at everything, Ryan is slowly slipping into depression, and we talk about the rising chorus of companies cutting capital expenditure and calling for government intervention. We discuss why the economics of the current downturn would best benefit from being left alone, and talk about how oilfield workers can go about getting new jobs.

Expecting Better Information

I have listened to the last 2 episodes thinking you would report on activities of Energy companies pertaining to drilling, exploration & production. I am somewhat disappointed.
I would like to offer the following suggestions.
1. Cut out the first 10-20 minutes of useless complaining and whining. It doesn't provide me with useful information.
2. There is good news out there, find it and report it.
3. Here's an idea to explore. Oil company stock buybacks. ExxonMobil has spent almost $100 Billion buying back their stock since 2011. Why? Cheap credit and Executive's managing their compensation plans. Now they have a stock that is down 50% and loaded with debt. And who suffers ultimately? Employees and vendors.
4. I will listen one more time and make a decision if it is worth my time.

Ryan is no longer a podcasting god

I met with Ryan the other day and he told me that he enjoyed making podcasts, but that his producer didn't know a soundboard from his skinny hemmorhoidal rear end. Which was kind of mean of him, no matter how accurate it was. Of course, Ryan isn't that big of a bully -- but then, we all know that he has such a muddy voice and a low-voltage intellect that he has to compensate somehow when his relentless pursuit of bigger and ever bigger microphones (I do not know why he does this, maybe somebody can tell me) fails him. Not that his co-host does him any favors, either: Josh Shelton is a byword out here in the SCOOP for sounding like he just drank a whole bottle of Windex and for the fact that you can hear him scratching his beard all the time. Somebody get that guy a beard-lice treatment! Also, Josh can't pronounce a single word that isn't Anglo-Saxon in origin. We tested this the other day by asking him to send us a recording of himself saying "cinco de mayo." The thing we got back sounded like a buzzsaw seizing on a knot in a piece of scotch pine mixed with the scream of Bonobo.
Of course, when these things aren't a problem, this is the best podcast in the oil and gas industry. Nobody can argue that.
