Fantastic Interview


I'm going to use this segment to introduce some friends to PP.

Well Done!

Well Done

That was a pleasure to watch.  With all the banality and stupidity being pumped out by the mass media today it was very refreshing to watch some one who is obviously a consummate professional totally in control of his material.  Urgent without being frightening, actionable without being overwhelming, connect the dots observations easy for distracted people to retain.

Thanks for watching and for the compliments!

I always find the skype interviews to be tricky because I cannot see the interviewer, so I'm just talking to a little camera eye...

Also have to work on the color....need more swarthyness!

JGritter nailed it!

Ditto to everything that JGritter said, and Oliveoil guy as well!  That was a fantastic interview, Chris.  And like JG says, the difference between listening to you speak confidently and intelligently from a place of knowledge, vs listening to the shallow BS and nonsense we're all used to hearing, was an absolutely pleasurable contrast.

I would like to believe that you are building up credibility over time with interviewers like those at, who are looking for people who can help make sense out of the surreal economic/energy/environmental (and geopolitical) story unfolding all around us.  And that as you continue to be taken more seriously by such interviewers, that maybe others will start listening and becoming aware too.

Well done and congrats!

Try 2500K light bulbs when using skype

The light source (daylight or daylight bulbs) needs more warmth.  I use the 2500 (soft white or warm light) bulbs to fix that problem with webcam.
