Episode 459: High-Profile Entrepreneurs
As president and CEO of TransCanada Corporation, Russ Girling is a lightning rod for questions surrounding the Keystone XL Pipeline.

Russ and John host the show that is “built for business.” We cater to the go-getters who create jobs and taxpayers. We should honor those who pay taxes! Includes: our Quote of the Week—inspiration from English clergyman Sydney Smith; It’s Dictators Week in Business History and we visit the founding of Venice (in 421 AD!), the invention of the corkscrew, and Steve McQueen’s escape from Stalag III; the Jargon Challenge Round—trendy technospeak you should know; and Dumb Moments—are we really giving away the Internet?!
As president and CEO of TransCanada Corporation, Russ Girling is a lightning rod for questions surrounding the Keystone XL Pipeline. He takes calls from environmentalists (there is a lot of misinformation out there), he answers the same governmental questions year after year, and he always comes back to the initial truth that North America could one day be energy self-sufficient. (Some environmentalists are starting to say they’re chasing the wrong guy!)
