The Shale Gas News, heard every Saturday at 10 AM on 94.3 FM “The Talker,” talked about Maine, Proctor & Gamble, greening of manufacturing and much more this week.
Every Saturday, Kevin Lynn of Linde Corporation and I co-host a morning radio show to discuss all things natural gas.
The Shale Gas News is typically broadcast live and this past Saturday’s program, the podcast of which is available here, covered the following new territory (see news excerpts below) and included an interview with NaturalGasNOW editor Tom Shepstone:
