Alaska is an oil state. But how did we get here? Alaska’s Energy Desk rewinds the clock with a new podcast: Midnight Oil. It’s the story of the pipeline no one thought could be built, of Alaska’s second gold rush and the bust that followed, of untold riches and foretold disaster. And what about the future? Will Alaska always be an oil state? Midnight Oil debuts this June on alaskapublic.org or whichever podcast app you use.
