Episode-264- The Core Concepts of The Survival Podcast Community

Once again I am off at DirtTime09 in California so I knocked out this show on a Friday afternoon a week ago and set it aside to fill in another day during my absence.

So what are we going to discuss today?  I thought it might be a good time to just back up a bit and talk about the unique concepts that we have developed together at The Survival Podcast.  Notice I said we not I because from day one the audience has been a huge part of not just the show but its’ development, direction and evolution.

Tune in today as I discuss…

  • How we have made “The Grasshopper and the Ant” part of modern survivalism
  • A quick retelling of the original story of the Grasshopper and the Ant
  • How disaster commonality can eliminate worrying about exactly “what” we prepare for
  • What must we accept if we are to become prepared
  • What does it mean that a hungry family makes it into the news today?
  • What is “just in time” inventory and why should you care
  • The real danger of swine flu is that it makes real dangerous diseases take a back seat
  • Is the economy held together with duct tape or is that an insult to rednecks?
  • Why should we occasionally listen to the tin foil hat crowd
  • How to ask questions that lead people to prep rather then telling them they should prep
  • Why debt is cancer and such a statement is not hype
  • What I really think the plaque on the Statue of Liberty should say
  • Why making the decision to do something is more important then how you are going to get it done
  • Why preparing for a specific event, eventually leads to failure
  • Why preparing for nothing to go wrong is the way to prepare for anything that goes wrong
  • A new car or a second home, you have a choice
