Episode-224- The One Year Anniversary Show

Not much for show notes today.  Today’s show is all calls from the audience describing what the last year has been like for them.  I only speak about 90 seconds total today.  Get ready to be inspired!  If you have been looking for a way to get friends and family on board, I think this will be a great show to share with them.

Episode-223- The Core Mission of The Survival Podcast

So what are we really doing every day on TSP?  Is it just about storing food, creating self sufficiency and putting together a more sustainable life?  Of course the show is about those things but it also about a lot more.

Tomorrow we are doing a very special episode in honor of our 1 year anniversary.  So today I wanted to inspire you to really think about how you are living, what your goals are and decide you really can take control.  While I hope today’s show is inspirational I think what you hear from fellow listeners tomorrow will be even more so.

Episode-222- Food Storage, Famland and New Currencies

Today is sort of a free wheeling show.  I discuss three main topics including money moving to buy farmland, the alliance of BRIC (Brazil, Russia, India, China) nations for a new currency and basic food storage for new survivalists

  • Getting Started with Emergency Food Storage – Starting with the philosophy of “store what you eat and eat what you store”.  Then we expand on building a basis with low cost long term storables from the supermarket.  From there into adding in true long term storage foods such as Mountain House, etc.
  • Next up is this BRIC Nations – Join me as I discuss the actions of Brazil, Russia, India and China as they plan for a new global currency basis.  I also analyze why this alliance makes sense and why we should be figuring out how to deal with the results because they are coming.
  • The final topic today is farmland investing – George Soros and Jim Rodgers are pumping money into buying farmland.  The meaning?  Food shortages are all but assured in the future.  However, I have a compelling case for why this investment COULD backfire if they don’t evaluate land management techniques if the play is designed for long term holding.
