This Week In Doom

This Week In Doom – #10: Pounds, Pipelines & Political Problems

With sterling in freefall in the wake of the Truss government’s ‘mini-budget’, Grant and The Green Chicken take a look at the implications of such a dramatic move in a major currency, place it in context alongside the recent weakness in the Japanese yen and wonder what this all means for future fiscal and monetary policy decisions.

Also, with this week’s sabotage of the Nord Stream pipelines, we ponder how this enemy action (though whose enemy is still uncertain) will complicate the already fragile energy situation as Europe heads towards what will undoubtedly be a winter of discontent. Throw in the Italian election results and there’s no shortage of topics into which teeth (and beaks) can be sunk.

This Week In Doom – #9: What’s Next For Europe? (Panel)

In this special edition of This Week In Doom, Grant and The Green Chicken are joined by Luke Gromen of Forest For The Trees LLC, Marko Papic of Clocktower Group and special guest Sir Steven Wilkinson, author of The Pitchfork Papers, for a discussion on the EU’s creaking energy policy, the effects of sanctions against Russia in the wake of the invasion of Ukraine and what it all means for the future of Europe.

In a two-hour debate filled with insightful analysis, respectful disagreement and thoughtful perspective, we explored multiple facets of the current situation, picked apart the potential outcomes and tried to handicap the likely paths that may be taken from here.

Finally, as the discussion turned to Germany’s role in how this all plays out, we welcomed Sir Steven who gave us the benefit of his near-30 years experience building and operating businesses in Germany.

This Week In Doom – #8: The Chicken Brings The Heat

In the latest episode of This Week in Doom, The Green Chicken brings the heat as we discuss two of the Doomberg team’s recent pieces: Malthusian Malarkey and Storm Chasers. In Malthusian Malarkey, the team took aim at the anti-nuclear lobby – explaining why attempts to shutter the nuclear industry are nothing more than an […]

This Week In Doom – #7: Kentucky Fired Chicken!

The latest episode of This Week In Doom is a masterclass from a very fired up Green Chicken as he takes us through some of the Doomberg team’s recent pieces, fleshing out some of the fascinating topics about which they’ve written in the last month.

Energy (of course) features heavily as do politics, geopolitics and the Russian ruble.

There’s always plenty about which to talk in today’s climate, but the Green Chicken does a wonderful job of analyzing, criticizing and explaining some of the many complex situations the team has taken on recently in their thought-provoking work.

Excellent stuff!

This Week In Doom – #5: Dr. Chris Keefer

Our guest on this edition of This Week In Doom is Dr. Chris Keefer, president of Canadians For Nuclear Energy and the host of the excellent Decouple podcast.

In an age of heightened interest in solutions to a burgeoning energy crisis, Chris’ work in the field of nuclear energy is a wonderful resource for anybody looking to understand one of the greenest of green alternatives.

Chris examines the problems facing nuclear energy as it seeks to gain wider adoption among a nervous public, dispels the myth of nuclear waste and offers his thoughts on where the industry goes from here, how it could improve its public image and the positive signs he’s seeing that there may finally be change in the air.

A truly fascinating, eye-opening conversation.

This Week In Doom – #2: Rory Johnston

Episode Two of This Week In Doom sees The Chicken and me welcome our first guest, Rory Johnston, whose work at his Substack, Commodity Context, is absolutely indispensable and, given the current dynamics in energy markets, looks set to become more so with each passing week.

In this fascinating discussion, Rory walks us through the oil industry from some basic concepts to some of the more nuanced factors affecting supply and demand and offers a set of insights rooted in years of experience analyzing the sector for one of Canada’s biggest banks.

From pipelines to politics ,Rory breaks down the oil & gas sector with the precision of a surgeon, proving exactly why he was the perfect opening guest on This Week In Doom as we try to bring under-followed analysts and content creators to a broader (and deserved) audience…

This Week In Doom: What’s It All About?

This is the first in a brand new series of podcasts featuring my co-host, Doomberg (the little green chicken who could) and a series of occasional guests who we believe will enhance and broaden your understanding of the increasingly complex world surrounding us.

Many of these guests will be content creators with smaller audiences than their work deserves to whom we’ll hopefully be able to offer a platform in order to help raise awareness of their work, as well as introducing our audience to great new talent.

In this first episode, we talk about recent pieces we’ve both written – fleshing out the ideas contained within them and discussing the feedback we’ve received. From crypto to energy markets and the use of both propaganda and censorship, there’s plenty into which we can sink our teeth (and beaks)…
