There are just two weeks left of 2016. And you know what? We're tapping out early. This is the last podcast of the year.

It’s been such a crazy 12 months for news that we’re packing it up and saving our energy for 2017.

Throughout the year, we've discussed every big story impacting the industry -- bankruptcies, acquisitions, legal challenges, the bloodbath in the public markets, new products, and, yes, the election of Donald Trump. 

Before we call it a year, we are strapping on our seat belts one last time and taking you on a ride through the many twists and turns of 2016.

We'll kick off with a look at Trump's picks of ExxonMobil CEO Rex Tillerson for Secretary of State, former Texas Governor Rick Perry for Energy Secretary, and Oklahoma Attorney General Scott Pruitt to lead the Environmental Protection Agency.

And then we'll discuss our other top stories in federal policy, state policy, international developments, business deals and technological improvements. Finally, we'll fire up our Predict-O-Meter and peer ahead into 2017. 

Endless thanks to our devoted listeners. We'll be back in early January.
