Better listening than the Ezra Klein Show

Amy once replied to me on Twitter 🤯, answering my question about an episode of the Ezra Klein Show she had listened to. That gave me an opportunity to juxtapose the two, and Drilled wins hands down. Not really apples to apples, the draw of EKS is the guest of the day, but every episode of Drilled is excellent and worth the time you’re putting in.

Informative podcast

Good info (although clearly politically biased, but the facts are facts). Audio is a bit weird - like she’s whispering but super sensitive mic to pick up all the mouth sounds. Bonus episodes/interview are boring - give us more narrative journalism

The story Big Oil doesn’t want you to know

Listen and judge for yourself who has something to hide. Those with the most to gain from the status quo will do whatever they can to hold onto it and manipulate our democratic system by spreading confusion and disinformation. All you need to do is follow the money.

Podcasters: Sound quality matters a lot!

I’m very interested in the information and opinions on this podcast, but after three different episodes wrecked my nerves with crashing dishes in the background, I gave up. I tried different earbuds as well as just the phone speaker, and several different podcast-players, but nothing helped. I listen to a wide variety of podcasts every day, and I know that good podcasters find a quiet place to do their interviews (on both ends if by phone) without dishes, sirens, jets or other sharp noises in the background. It’s not expensive or difficult. If you won’t listen to your own podcast as an audience member would, on a phone or in the car, you may not know. At the very least get a friend to listen the way any other audience member would, and give you honest feedback. I can’t be the only listener who unsubscribes because of careless sound quality.

Should be required listening

Everyone should know the depth of lies and manipulation that drove us to where we are now. The true crime style of storytelling is compelling, and the short episodes always leave me wanting to hear more.

Changed My Life

Season 1 of Drilled literally changed my life by opening my eyes to the breadth and depth of what corporations like Exxon have done to us. Every human should listen to this. At times, the storytelling falls off and the delivery feels a bit dry, but don't let that stop you. This is deeply important reporting.

Why Hasn’t This Existed Before?

Listening to Drilled, it’s such an obvious approach to this that I’m amazed it’s not more common: man-made climate change, and the sheer denial of facts around it, told in the style of a true crime story.

Excellent reporting, urgent topic

This is the only person I know of who is telling the crucial story of climate change denial and how corporations created it. I’ve been following climate change and environmental news for a long time, but I learn something every time I listen to this podcast.

Must listen, but please improve audio

Five stars because I think every American should listen to this. We must know the truth about the fossil fuel industry! But, I cannot stand Amy’s recordings. It sounds like she’s recording them in a closet at home, whispering and she adds really distracting inflection. I want to recommend this to everyone but I get so distracted by her inflection that I’m hesitant to share this particular podcast versus just literature on the topic. Please consider constructive audio analysis!

Great content, bad audio

Let me begin by saying I very much appreciate this pod's message and its mission. Listened to every season. However, as of the last 3 eps, the audio is very poor quality, with random silences, popping, high bass, clipping, etc. Played on multiple devices so I know it's not me. Guys, this is season 3 of this series, not season 1. Please get your act together!

Everyone should listen to this

Great coverage of our sad history and absolutely criminal behavior. This should be required listening. Play it in parks, subways, trains, TV and radio. Put it on billboards.

This is an astonishingly great podcast.

A few months ago I learned that just 100 companies have been the source of more than 70% of the world’s greenhouse gas emissions in recent decades. This podcast explores how the fossil has spent vast amounts of money discrediting its own climate change research and persuading government officials and the general public that the climate catastrophe facing us is still debatable. They want us to believe that the solutions to this crisis are so cumbersome and uncertain we shouldn’t even try to change the status quo. If you want to understand the inner workings of this insidious disinformation campaign, you will want to subscribe to this unique, beautifully produced podcast.

Brilliant, astonishing, crucial.

Astonishing and infuriating, brilliantly told and so well-produced. This podcast blew my mind, made me angry, made me think, and changed my view of the entire history of the climate change battle. Should be required listening.

Historical facts that brought us to where we are today with climate change. It’s an ugly history but one everyone should know about.

Outstanding Pidcast

This is an amazing story and very well told. After 20 years as a software engineering consultant in petrophysics I thought knew the business pretty well.I was blown away by the Exxon Bell labs projects, the climate-change research done by the majors, and the plight of the crab fishermen. Well done!!!!
