Over a Barrel: The New Oil Crisis – Weekly Edition
In a shock move, OPEC oil-rich nations cut back their production. Are we in for a 1974-style oil crisis? And has the Middle East just sided with Putin? Plus, the heroic protests in Iran where young women rebel after the killing of Mahsa Amini. At home: what next for Truss as she evolves from u-turns into donuts? And the end of the World Service as we know it.
Special guest Dr. Julie Norman, associate professor in politics and international relations at University College London, joins us in The Bunker for high-level politics talk… and some big news about the podcast.
“With this move OPEC has laid down its cards with Russia – it’s a slap in the face to the US and Europe.” – Julie Norman
“What is so striking about the protests is it is fundamentally a women-led movement.” – Yasmeen Serhan
"If you spend a decade purging a party of moderation, you don't get one kind of crazy, you get loads." – Alex Andreou
