Sean and David Parsons, host of the excellent history podcast Nostalgia Trap, take a dive into the politics and ideology of fossil fuels through the lens of the 2005 George Clooney and Matt Damon film 'Syriana'. They go back to the 1990s and 2000s, especially the wake of 9/11 and the runup to the Afghanistan and Iraq invasions, to look at the sometimes troubled and myopic, but always fraught, way that Americans understand their relationship to oil and geopolitics.

Out later this week will be follow-up crossover, 'Diving into the Wreckage 2' with C Derrick Varn, about the deep connection between capital accumulation and fossil fuel consumption, globalization and rising emissions, and the future we can expect with climate change.
