If you're a true fan of the show, you know how much we stan Ida Tarbell around these parts. The muckraking journalist who brought Standard Oil to its knees and scared the oil industry into kicking off its first big PR campaigns, Tarbell is something of a mascot around these parts.

About Drilled News

Climate accountability — investigating the various drivers of delay on climate action—is critical to understanding and addressing climate change. It's never been more important than now.

Big Oil spent much of 2020 using the COVID-19 pandemic to push through a long-held wishlist of incentives and regulatory rollbacks. Now as the Biden administration prepares to take office, and the window of time to take the necessary action on climate dwindling, it's never been more critical to keep tabs on the industry and the local, national, and international context in which it's operating. We've been talking a lot lately about widening the lens of accountability, looking beyond the industry itself to its many enablers. 

It's a whole lot to keep tabs on and Drilled is the only independent, non-advocacy climate accountability reporting outlet. We bring together a handful of print and audio reporters who have been on this beat for years to produce stories on both the Drilled News website and in the Drilled podcast. We make our reporting available to a broad mix of national outlets as well, including HuffPost, Grist, New York Magazine, and more. We are also a proud member of Covering Climate Now, a global journalistic collaboration to strengthen coverage of the climate story. If you would like to syndicate our reporting, or collaborate on a reporting project, get in touch!
Goals
$2,438.35 of $5,000 per month
This support will close up the gap in our production budget for 2021 seasons of Drilled, enabling us to bring you two new seasons sooner, plus a whole bunch of bonus content.
