The world is getting warmer. The weather is getting weirder. And in Alaska, we have a front row seat. This summer, Alaska’s Energy Desk returns with all-new episodes of our podcast, Midnight Oil. Season Two is called The Big Thaw. Last season, we looked back -- at the state’s roller-coaster history with oil. This time, we're looking forward, to one of the biggest question marks ahead: climate change. What does it mean to be an oil state in a warming world?

Best series

As a regular visitor and a lifelong lover of the 49th state these podcast really give me the true perspective of what is going on to save the land and Alaskan lifestyle by understanding the POV of the politics and people of ALASKA

So important for our world today

This podcast is entertaining, educational, and so well researched. You can almost hear the journalists grappling with the topic they’re reporting on as Alaskans themselves. Everyone should listen to this podcast.

Best series podcast I’ve ever listened to

This series nailed the podcast format. Of course the subject matter is riveting (a modern day frontier riches story with politics, deception, underdogs, grit, triumph, failure, culture clashes, ethical dilemmas, big money....everything) but even more than all that I was really impressed with the production and editing. It felt like the team behind this had a great shared vision from the beginning? Like all the source material was gathered with this product in mind. The product feels “tight”, unlike a normal radio broadcast that has to work with what audio material they have. I really appreciated all the various interviews and perspectives that were weaved together so coherently. A+, I recommend this series to all my friends.
