This Monday’s Prepper Scenario

This one is strait from my interview with Masaad Ayoob if you remember it.  Whether you do or do not put yourself into this scenario.  A man attempts to break into you home and manages to do so.  You hear the commotion and pick up your gun.  You find the man in your home, you order him the ground but he comes at you, you shoot him, he is down dying in a pool of blood.  For what ever reason you are alone in your home, no other witnesses.  You now must dial 911, how do you handle everything from this point forward.

Last Monday’s Prepper Scenario

Riots have erupted in your area, similar to the Ferguson riots. The cause is not really relevant so we will leave it out. The key is that these riots are not likely to spread to your house BUT you and your spouse (if you have one) work near the area where they are occurring. Additionally you have some concern over the location of your children’s school. What are your procedures and protocols for travel, when to stay home and how to deal with potential spread of the danger.

Remember to comment, chime in and tell us your thoughts, this podcast is one man’s opinion, not a lecture or sermon. Also please enter our listener appreciation contest and help spread the word about our show. Also remember you can call in your questions and comments to 866-65-THINK (866-658-4465) and you might hear yourself on the air.

Also remember we have an expert council you can address your calls to. If you do this you should email me right after your call at jack at thesurvivalpodcast.com with expert council call in the subject line. In the body of your email tell me that you just called in a question for the council and what number you called in from. I will then give the call priority when I screen calls.

Trouble Downloading the Podcast?

techdiffEarlier this week the RSS feed that allows users to get our podcast with programs like the iPhone Podcast App, Stitcher Radio, the TSP Android App, etc. experienced a weird bug.

For some reason the feed just FUBAR’d and was pointing download apps to a place where there were no mp3 files.  This caused a few of the apps to get buggy as well.

As soon as I became aware of this I “rebuilt” the feed using the “nuclear option” (yes they really call it that) in Feedburner.  This fixed the bug.  It didn’t fix the problem in all apps though, some yes, some no.

In particular the Android App which is run by Jason at Droidworks had a bug revealed by the problem.  If you use that app you should get the latest version, Jason had it updated within 4 hours of hearing about the issue.

If you are using the iPhone Podcast App or Stitcher Radio all seems to be well now.

If you are using any other app and having problems with it these are the two solutions that have worked for almost everyone who reported trying them.

  1. Simply unsubscribe and resubscribe to the podcast in that app.
  2. If the first option doesn’t work, uninstall the app and reinstall it.

I am sorry for the inconvenience but it really isn’t anything we did wrong here.  And we took what corrective action we could as swift as we possibly could.

Episode-1477- Kenton Zerbin on Permaculture, Crowdfunding and More

kenton

Kenton Zerbin of PRI Barbados

Kenton Zerbin is an inspirational speaker, teacher & consultant who empowers others to repair degraded landscapes, grow food and build community. A teacher by training, Kenton specialty is in facilitating a quality education as a professionally certified Permaculture teacher.

He has spent the last 3 years studying, designing and teaching Permaculture across Australia and Canada, designing properties and guest speaking for gardening groups, conferences and Universities alike. He now serves as the PRI certified Permaculture Teacher & educational program planner for The Caribbean Permaculture Research Institute of Barbados.

Kenton joins us today to discuss the power of community funding and a brand new permaculture research Institute in Barbados.  We also discuss Self-sufficiency vs. inter-dependency along with our view of what permaculture really is all about.

We further examine the question of can humans be a regenerative force or are we a virus bent on paracitism of the planet.  We continue with why Kenton feels that “self-sufficiency” a commonly misunderstood concept.  From there we discuss the solutions offered by permaculture thinking.  We also discuss if there is any real escape from humanity’s current circumstance?

From there we discuss education and how it is both the problem and a potential solution to many of our issues.  We finish up with a discussion on Crowdfunding and how even a failed campaign ended up helping to fund the PRI in Barbados.  We also discuss why they built on in Barbados and how Barbados is actually in one way a bit like the famed Easter Island.

Episode-1476- Understanding Money ~ I Mean Really Understanding It!

Money can be used to enslave.

Money Can Make You Put on Your Own Chains

Today I am going to really discuss money at a high level, perhaps in some ways at a beyond PhD level, since many PhD’s in economics frankly don’t truly seem to understand money themselves.

At this higher level on some of today’s content things may sound a bit metaphysical, they are not, there is just a certain stigma to certain words at this point like energy and matter and intention.

Additionally some of the higher concepts may seem hard to understand or perhaps more ethereal then concrete and actionable.  Some of you might feel an urge to skip or gloss over them as not being that important.

But do you want to know the truth?  Do you really?

The concepts I will explain today about money are the blueprint for the enslavement of a society by those in power.  The oligarchs, the plutocracy and the State.  It is the very means by which individuals are controlled and it is nothing but an illusion.

The problem though is unlike many illusions, this one causes multiple collective delusions and those create new realities that we much actually contend with.  Do you want to fully understand what all of that complex language means?  Then tune in today and it will all become clear.

Join Me Today to Discuss…

  • What is money
  • How does money obey the laws of energy
  • What does energy and money teach us about
    • Durable Materials
    • Fuel Energy
    • Health
    • Food
    • Transportation
    • Monetary Creation, Manipulation and Movement
  • How is US money created and why does it work
  • What is inflation and how does monetary velocity effect it
  • Why anyone can create money but not all money works
  • Why money fails
  • How money created freedom
  • How money then created slavery
  • How to use this knowledge to your own advantage
  • What you can and can’t control
  • Why real value is the path to liberty
