Episode-1856- Societal Collapse with CJ Kilmer

Prof. CJ - Of The Dangerous History Podcast

Prof. CJ – Of The Dangerous History Podcast

CJ Killmer has been teaching college history since 2006, but he has been a smartass, iconoclast, and cynical questioner and critic of authority since he was a kid.

Naturally, these attitudes have influenced his take on history.

In 2014, he started the Dangerous History Podcast, a show that covers a wide variety of history topics from an individualist-anarchist perspective, combining education and entertainment with the ultimate goal of empowerment.

Today we discuss the historical reality of societal collapses in history, both long ago and very recently.  We also take a look at the causes of societal collapse beyond the surface examples usually given.  Further we look at what our future holds and what lessons we can learn from past collapses.

Episode-1855- Electric Canning for the Busy Family – Food Storage All Year Long

The Chard Canner is the Best Currently Available Electric Option.

The Chard Canner is the Best Currently Available Electric Option.

So today we look at using electric canners specifically my preferred electric pressure canner the “Chard 9.5 Quart Smart Pressure Canner“, and the only other one I recommend, the Power Pressure Cooker XL.  For what it is worth the Power Pressure Cooker XL is a DISTANT second, you will hear why in today’s show.

I own both of the above models and a traditional All American Canner, that thing is a beast and will likely outlast my grandchildren, but honestly I don’t use it much since discovering electric pressure canners.

The key with these items is they work and do so without a lot of supervision, when they are finished they just shut themselves down.  They also do far more than just can, they pressure cook, you can water bath can, they steam and more.  Today though we will focus on the canning aspect of things.

Join Me Today to Discuss…

  • Why I currently ONLY RECOMMEND TWO electric canners
  • Why these canners are absolutely safe for pressure canning
  • The basic pressure canning process
  • Items you will need to can
  • The different mindset that comes with automated canning
    • Doing 4-8 jars makes sense
    • You don’t just have to can what you grow
    • Make double batches and can half
  • Some of our favorite items to can and how to make them
    • My chicken soup
    • Bone stocks of all kinds
    • Squash soup
    • Cubed venison – Or any cubed up meat
    • Beef stew
    • Whole Quail – yep
  • Final Thoughts

Episode-1851- Chris Haynes on Off Grid Tiny Homes

offpowerChris Haynes is an electrical and software engineer. He moved from a full size grid connected house to an off grid tiny house located on a rural lot. He has built a very small (66sf) tiny house and a code compliant 252sf tiny house where he currently lives.

He has been living off grid for over 4 years using a very simple and inexpensive solar system. He shares his experiences in tiny house living at conferences held in the northeast US.

He just released a new book called “Tiny House Engineers Notebook: Volume 1, Off Grid Power”. Its written in a style that is suitable for folks with no electrical knowledge.

Chris originally joined us at TSP on Episode 1365 that is almost two years ago, he now has a lot more experience actually living the Tiny House way.  He has been though Snowpocalypse and a hell of a Heat Wave for a summer as well.  So we will discuss somethings he has done to make his home more livable.

Episode-1850- Getting Started with Bitcoin and Ether

coinbase

Coinbase is the Safe and Easy Way to Get Started with Bitcoin

Today I am going to go into the basics of what Bitcoin, Ether and other alternative currencies are, how they work, why they work and how you can use them.

I am not and I do not claim to be an expert on alternative currencies.  What I do have is an exceptional understanding of money and economics, and while Bitcoin and other alt coins are not “money” as defined by the US Government (which is good by the way), they are in fact money and every bit as legitimate as the US Dollar, in fact as you will see today perhaps more so.

My hope at the end of the show today is that if you want to use bitcoin you know how to and can do so without fear.  To dispel the continued propaganda myths around alt currencies and to dispel the dumbest myth of all, that Bitcoin is akin to virtual Tulip Mania.

Join Me Today To Discuss…

  • First how conventional money works
    • Monetary Creation
    • Where the “value” comes from
    • Why this insane system does in fact work
  • How Bitcoins are “mined”
  • Why Bitcoin is deflationary
  • What makes Bitcoin secure or not secure
  • How Bitcoin can be very public or very private
  • What is Ether, how is it different from Bitcoin
  • What about other alternative currencies
  • The easy way to get started
    • Coinbase (Click Here to Set Up an Account)
      • A lot like Paypal
      • Can hold Bitcoin and Ether as well as Dollars
      • Yes they do report to the .Gov
      • They are extremely secure
      • Allows you to buy, sell, send and receive Bitcoin
  • My final thoughts on Bitcoin as an “investment”
    • Instantly Liquid (48 hours in a vault)
    • Can be completely hidden from seizure
    • Is not legally money (this is good)
    • Total quantity and production is know
    • More users must increase the value of it
