Congress' energy bill surprise with Dave Roberts
I’ve been really pleasantly surprised by the number of people who’ve subscribed to Slow Boring but I don’t want to let early success lead to complacency, so I’m hoping to experiment with more ways to add value to membership.
One idea that seemed like it might make sense is lo-fi podcasts done with other subscription blog writers, so I was psyched to chat with David Roberts of Volts about the big energy bill that somewhat unexpectedly got folded into the omnibus.
What’s actually in this bill
How “Secret Congress” lets congress actually function sometimes
Why the greens’ desires alliance with building trades doesn’t quite seem to come together
Some random piano instead of a proper theme song
Hope you enjoy and let me know what you think.
