“I was really excited about this podcast because I too grew up in Andrews and graduated about the time this guys was born so i know all too well what he speaks of. There is a lot good with this podcast, it tells a good history of the oil industry and that of West Texas. It give some good insight on the people that built the oil patch in the Permian and the character that they needed to survive the highs and lows of the industry. The bad is it’s told by a leftist at Texas Monthly, but I repeat myself. Obama only signed the bill, which was passed by a Republican Congress, because it wouldn’t touch his green energy and environmental policies. Plus when he took office the production was already starting to rise. Pappy O’Daniel was a hardcore Democrat who ran on a platform denouncing Brown v Board of Education and desegregation. If by right wing he means fascist ok, but the guy was no conservative.
I recommend listening but just take his political views with a grain of salt. I just wish that an unbiased story would be told.”
