Gas prices remain volatile in the wake of Russia’s invasion of Ukraine. Preet speaks with Pulitzer Prize winning author Daniel Yergin about how that conflict is impacting the global energy market, the future of electric cars, the shale revolution in the U.S., and the time Vladimir Putin raised his voice to Yergin at a conference in St. Petersburg. 

Plus, updates on the January 6th committee’s effectiveness, slow movement from DOJ, and a civics lesson on federal grand juries.  

In the Insider bonus, Daniel Yergin discusses whether individual nations can become self-sufficient energy producers and the responsibility of oil and gas giants to help lessen climate change. To listen, try the membership for just $1 for one month:
