This week on The Michael Dukes Show (Sept 6/7, 2016) …

As regular readers know, most Tuesday mornings at 7:20 am Alaska, I join KBYR AM700‘s The Michael Dukes Show to discuss the latest in Alaska oil and fiscal issues.

This week is a bit different.  With Michael off on “assignment” (hahahaha — most people call it a vacation, but I am learning that journalists call it an “assignment”), last Friday and most of this week I have been sitting on the other side of the microphone as the show’s guest host.  As a result, instead of applying my experience to respond to questions from Michael, I have been using it mostly to develop  context and frame questions during discussions with others.

Because I think the resulting discussions are informative on the issues we address on these pages I am posting the podcasts of the discussions from Tuesday (Sept 6, 2016) and today (Sept 7, 2016) here.  (We already have posted the ones from last Friday’s show here.)  The relevant segments are as follows:

Tuesday (Sept 6, 2016)

  • My take on the Administration’s proposal to use the Permanent Fund to pay for oil credits (8am block at 33:30 into the segment).

Wednesday (Sept 7, 2016)

  • Interview with Rebecca Logan of the Alliance and news and opinion source AKHeadlamp on #AKLNG, the dispute between the Administration and BP over the Prudhoe Bay Plan of Development & the use of the Permanent Fund to pay oil credits (6am block at 32.35 into the segment),
  • Interview with House District 18 Republican candidate Mike Gordon on #AKLNG & #OilCredits (7am block at 13:15 into the segment), and
  • Interview with KTVA’s Liz Raines on the proposed use of the Permanent Fund to pay #OilCredits, Sen. Wielechowski’s suit to restore the full PFD and what happens next in the House District 40 race (8am block at 14:10).
