Perspectives on Energy Poverty with Scott Tinker

Co-producer and narrator of Switch (2012), Scott Tinker joins The SPE Podcast to discuss his sequel project, Switch On, which explores energy poverty around the globe. Tinker shares stories from his travels and provides insights into solutions during his discussion with Glenda Smith, VP of Communications, SPE.

An SPE Distinguished Lecturer, Tinker often greets people proudly with, "I work in the oil and gas industry, and I help to lift the world out of poverty." He hopes to hear more in the industry proudly answering the 'what do you do' question.
