The biden administration turned its sights on a favourite target for american presidents opec the organization of the petroleum. Exporting countries opec controls more than eighty percent of the oil reserves on the planet. President biden wants to thirteen opec nations to pump out. more oil. biden is making the play at the same time that americans are dealing with high prices at the pump and as a us is resistant to tap into its reserves to unpack the global oil game. We're joined by ellen. Walled with the atlantic council global energy center. She joins us from jacksonville florida. How is opec responding to the biden administrations criticisms and demands to increase output ellen. Opaque hasn't issued a formal response. But there were some comments from opec delegates from. They basically amounted to our market analyses. We don't really see a need for more oil right now. So which is basically what you're saying. No we're not going to pump more. We already have plans to pump more oil. In fact we're not gonna put more than than we planned and don't know what you're talking about. And how does the white house does it see that. That increase output is satisfactory. Well it seems like they don't think that this increased output satisfactory but in in effect opec is going to be increasing its production by four hundred thousand barrels. A day each month from now through december and probably farther into twenty twenty two. So it's really kind of confusing as to why the biden registration is pressing opec for even more oil now where they already have plans to increase it wrote so opec does get a lot of criticism from the white house when gas prices are high. Here is this criticism of opec fair. It's not all pex fault in this case and gasoline prices in the united states aren't just a factor of opec they're mostly a factor of of oil prices but there is more that goes into it so for example last year or in say february of twenty twenty. The us was pumping thirteen million barrels. A day of oil now republican much closer to eleven and that extra two million barrels. A day doesn't seem like it's coming back. And a lot of that is due to policies that the administration has put in place that discouraged producers from expanding production domestically. So why do you think the.

"To have him on and be like. Let's go deep about this stuff that you wrote about. What did you learn when you were interviewing pat patterson or whatever it was and i was like. Yeah i love this. And i know that i would love if there is a show like this so it was always my approach. Doing what was then. Sam roberts wrestling podcast. That's why i put no sort of pressure on myself to come up with a flashy name or you know. Come up with some kind of i dunno industry jargon term that i could twist into a into the you know turnbuckle bump or something. I don't know i just wanted to do a wrestling. Podcast that was hosted by me. So that's where the title came from. Believe it or not But to watch it grow. And even then i was like people thought i was late coming to the podcast game when i started three hundred and fifty weeks ago watching wrestling podcast change and evolve and grow and build and bill to the point. Where it's like wrestling. Podcasts are one of the biggest genres in podcast. You got comedy podcast. Co cabana had a ton to do with that by the way because cococabana is the one that took the what what comedy podcasts were. Doing which was for a long time. It was his mark man. It was comedian talking to another comedian and that format just exploded and coca ban is the one that said what if it was a wrestler talking to another wrestler that opened the floodgates. I feel like that was. That was a huge step forward. But i had no idea where it was going to go. I had no idea any there was no business plan behind it. I wasn't it. I didn't make any money. I mean i'm still like it could never be my primary source of income. Because it's not i don't know i just don't look at it that way. I look at it as something that i feel still to this day. Very lucky to do and something that i like that it's out there and you know i feel really lucky and fortunate that so many of you guys have ridden with me. Through every incarnation of this podcast. When it was just me sitting in my living room my one bedroom apartment alone trying to work things out. You know riding through the linen doll years of just. I mean so much great stuff coming out of that. You know the the seeing the podcast evolved to the point that it was not as interview focused anymore more opinion based the live events that we've done and getting to this place where i'm at now where i've told you you know that i'm planning on having an interview every other week. Know coming out of cova digest. I look at the wrestling. Podcast not him wrestling this podcast differently. You know i. I'm for whatever reason. I feel refreshed and i. I'm starting to feel like. I fell when i first started doing the podcast where it's like. It's time for me to go back to taking advantage of having the opportunity to talk to people who are passionate about this thing that i'm passionate about as well professional wrestling but talk to people that that live it and breathe. It talked to people that are in the ring. Talk to people that are doing their thing and and maybe even expose them to a new audience if anything just selfishly take advantage of the fact that i'm gonna get to sit down with them for an hour and pick their brain you know. And that's where somebody like know. An and i think some of the stuff that i did over cove it you know. It was making me rethink of the dan housing interview. It's the it's the a lot of independent talent was making me rethink things but the interview with with alli catch that. We did a few weeks ago. I loved so much. The interview with nick gage that we did two weeks ago. I loved that so much. We're going to have another great long form in studio interview on next week. Show and that's going to be something that continues here on the podcast. You know i'm gonna try. I'm trying to figure out a schedule in my mind. I'd like after every pay per view to be able to offer you a pay per view recap show and in order to do a proper pay per view recap show. I think it's weird to do an interview and the pay per view recaps. I'm trying to do every other week. Topic interview interview. But i might have to double up on one or the other just to keep in line with those Post pay per view shows. Which i think are important. But that's where my mind's at right. Now i'm just you know i feel like at episode three fifty here. We've we've planted the seeds over last month or so and the podcast is once again evolving and moving into a new direction. And i'm really excited to be in a spot where depending on the week. It's either about analysis that some of you love current product analysis. Mix with kind of that overarching old school thing. Whether it's you know talking about best fan moments ever whether it's talking about the best promos from last week which we'll get into some of the emails. I got or this week when we're going over this tag team list. That is going to bring us into a conversation. I'll have a guest on mike. Mansehra will be back to talk about the tag teams but to have that.

"This term should be used more often frankly. It's a failure of wrestling that this term is used more often to describe wrestlers at any level not commercial rockstar. He's michael jackson freddie mercury mick jagger. He has that 'it factor and he's prints. I mean there it's like he's a rock star and he is so much he whatever. The negative might come along culturally from him. Being japanese is is irrelevant because who he is as a human being in a rockstar overrides. Any of that and i am more fearful. That vince won't recognize that or get it or see it. But there's no if if you're if you're worried about ratings being down the best thing that happens when ratings are down as big things happen that are outside the normal normal I guess in the box approach to promoting. I mean it took vince russo. Being brought into booking beating by bill watts through some a magazine writer. Just to keep up on storylines. Keep the magazine more up to date. He'll confide his tongue. No surprise and told vincent his yes man. This is ridiculous. This era of howard stern. You guys are lame And you should be doing things different and at. I'm sure you know vince was that i. Who does this guy think he is and then he absolutely loved him for speaking his mind and it changed the course of the industry and at some point when things are bad mines open up more open-minded the things. I'm hoping the timing is right in that regard for nakimora that that the ratings are low enough even if other things are going pretty well in certain ways that vincent's like yeah. I don't wanna i don't i. Don't get this guy but it's the crowds at them. Let's do it. We did was austin listened to the fans and go forward with it and see what happens. It'll be it'll be exciting. let's go yeah you know. I think the only thing that would stop nakimora from succeeding would be if he got a couple of injuries. I think i think we're at a time period. Where vincent whoever else is super sensitive to injury prone wrestlers so if that would be one thing if he got he got a couple of injuries then i think all the confidence and gone So as long as he stays injury-free which i think you can Then i think it'll be fine. Yeah yeah good point. let's go back to reginald. i think reginald. He said he had a second topic for us. I did through i wanted to Something else that got brought up earlier you were talking about rain in the situation and we talked about a million times but There's something i actually talking to. James carville about a few weeks ago and We were kind of elaborating on that. That was saying that I feel like 'cause actually believe it or not. I don't i think he's has put on some good matches. I just think that the booking has been his problem. He's been putting a really re position right now. But i think we can benefit from is is is kind of like doing like a Eight to be redundant here but kind of do a c. And punk kind of thing were hugest like she puts out and it's real like he actually like he just rips off that shield vest. He's just like you know he's like you know what. Forget this. You know what you guys are mad at me. 'cause you wanna be me like you really just cuts like a pipe bomb. You just goes off like he gets in the crowd space he's going off and he embraces being you embrace being hated then that's where that's where all the rewards will come in later if that makes any sense like if the embrace being booed embraced If if you like accepted the fact that not everybody's gonna like. I mean and and he can get handed being like that. He's going to have to really work hard to get that and just cut loose with his mind and they experienced that freedom so that's all i have been Thanks guys agreed afternoon to take their thanks. reginal Anything to say on that stuff. No i think it definitely going back to what we talked about before i would say the only difference is i. Don't think roman is to communicate around the microphone. The cnn kids. So i don't. I don't think that a a promo would do it but i i mean i do think that any knowledge meant like we said What the crowd is doing Would go a long way absolutely well. Take our final break of this hour. And we'll come back with some more minutes. With sam roberts from the sam roberts wrestling podcast and Some more calls and or emails So stay tuned. we'll be right back. I am wade. Keller joined by sam roberts here on torchlight june sixteenth. Two thousand sixteen Sam just saw on twitter a comment. That kind of lied to us Getting your thoughts on the pending roster split I love these twitter handles. His name is so credit. says pow torches the brand split idea ba due to low ratings and we'll splitting the roster cut ratings in half and further damage the product i. I'm more of an optimist i'm just saying optimists. 'cause that's the wrong word because i i i'm i'm certainly aware of the perils of wwe's approach the roster split previously. And and. i'm not sure that i'm putting money on them doing things right. But i m someone who thinks that it's a. It's an idea that i've done. Well can be absolutely beneficial. I mean having not over exposing on two shows per week and being forced to look at the bright side and do what. Paul heyman did any. Cw which is our either six things that disqualifies this guy from ever getting a job in wrestling. But there's four things that i can utilize to make money with them. And i'm going to focus on those four things and not the other six and he had created this promotion from it when you don't when you can't just default to another kevin owens styles randy orton shameless filler match on smackdown. Because you don't have half those guys I i think you're forcing you've created a structure. My analogy was. It's like if you don't bring potato chips home and put them in the cupboard. You're more likely to reach for the celery and hamas in the fridge And i the roster split is forcing them into not reaching to the to the answer which is just have using until twenty five minutes on raw and twenty five minutes on smackdown..
