E2: Ronnie Hill, Impact Drilling

Episode Highlights

Buckle up and dive into Drillin' and Chillin', where we're hanging out with the legendary Ronnie Hill from Impact Drilling.

Having taken his first interview in shorts and thongs, Ronnie landed a job that spanned into three decades of drilling adventures.

This episode is a journey through sweltering heat, dodgy safety gear (if any), and a baptism by fire into the world of drilling. It’s also a look at how things used to be, starkly different from the tech-savvy, meticulously safe operations we see today.

Ronnie talks about drilling's digital leap, the global gigs that tested his limits, and the importance of keeping the human touch in a tech-heavy world.

This episode is a casual, candid look at drilling life. So, grab your favourite chill spot and tune in to catch Ronnie in action.
