Buried deep underground lies a wealth of oil and natural gas. Embedded in shale, the major gas companies thought extraction was a waste of time. That all changed when a handful of men thought otherwise, thus creating the process now known as fracking. 

In this episode, Cole Smead sits down with Greg Zuckerman, author of the book The Frackers: The Outrageous Inside Story of the New Billionaire Wildcatters. Greg introduces us to the men responsible for the birth of fracking and explains how the trajectory of the United States economy changed with the extraction of oil and natural gas.
