Episode-345- An Interview with Christopher Nyerges

Join me today as I interview Christopher Nyerges from the editorial staff of Wilderness Way Magazine.  Christopher is also the author of quite a few books and a wealth of knowledge on gardening, permaculture, botany, alternative energy, wilderness survival skills and more.

Note of Correction – In today’s show I mention a 5000 year old food forest, that was an error it was a 2000 year old forest.  I apologize for the misstatement and a link to the Youtube video is in today’s show notes.

Join me today as we discuss…

  • Christopher’s new book, The Self Sufficient Home
  • How to be cost effective with solar, wind and other energy projects
  • Why being part of the effort is key to success with alternative energy projects
  • The parallels between surviving urban/suburban disasters and wilderness survival
  • The importance of caring for others in a survival situation
  • Why political awareness is important for modern survivalism
  • The three illusions of money
  • Why Christopher choose the format for his new book of showing multiple families and communities with real world projects
  • The importance of growing your own food
  • Methods of harvesting water and why it is key to your success
  • Why “resource shortage” is more important that political concepts like global warming

  1. Great show! I read Extreme Simplicity by Christopher Nyerges a couple of years ago. While it is very different from my situation (He is urban, I live on a farm , I recommend it as the best urban homesteading book I ever read.

    Would love to see a follow up with you guys on Money and the Fed.

  2. The podcasts from the car were louder. From your home I can’t hear them. I am going to buy some speakers and see if that will help. I am on a laptop.


  3. Great show…I enjoy your guests and I like how you, Jack, show the common areas between various communities. Highlighting the “prepper” thread.

  4. Awesome interview, I just orderd two of his books.

  5. Looking forward to follow up interviews! This was a great show… I’ll be looking to buy his books, too.

  6. I don’t analyze dreams or read poetry, (maybe I’m not describing well), I didn’t think I would like this kind of show; but now I look forward to a follow up.

    I just listened for the second time and was mentally stimulated. The philosophy that was introduced brings a much deeper meaning to what it is we’re doing.

    Thanks Jack and Christopher!
