Episode-1319- Glen Tate on the 299 Days Movie Kickstarter

Book 4 in the 299 Days Series

Book 4 in the 299 Days Series

Glen Tate is the author of the ten-book prepper novel series “299 Days” published by Prepper Press.

The books describe an average guy who prepares for, and lives through, a partial collapse of the United States.

Glen joins us today to his current efforts to turn his book into a movie.

Glen is a moderator on the TSP forum under the name “Heavy G.” He lives and works in Olympia, Washington where he has a front row seat to the corruption in government. Much like the main character in the series, the author is a forty-something resident of the capitol of Washington State, Olympia, and is a very active prepper. He grew up in the remote logging town of Forks, Washington.

“Glen” keeps his identity a secret so he won’t lose his job because, in his line of work, being a prepper and questioning the motives of government is not appreciated.

You can submit your pledge here for the 299 Days Movie.

Episode-1181- Glen Tate on 299 Days Book Six and Beyound

Book 4 in the 299 Days Series

Book 4 in the 299 Days Series

Glen Tate is the author of the ten-book prepper novel series “299 Days” published by Prepper Press.

The books describe an average guy who prepares for, and lives through, a partial collapse of the United States.

Glen joins us today to discuss a bit of the plot line for book six in the 299 Days book series.

Today we discuss how and ongoing collapse might play out.  We also discuss the potential need for “interim government” in a collapse scenario and what that might be like.  We also talk about Glen’s cool friends project and how it is evolving with folks like James Yeager of Tactical Response, Stewart Rhodes of Oathkeepers and John Willis of SOE Tactical Gear.

Glen is a moderator on the TSP forum under the name “Heavy G.” He lives and works in Olympia, Washington where he has a front row seat to the corruption in government. Much like the main character in the series, the author is a forty-something resident of the capitol of Washington State, Olympia, and is a very active prepper. He grew up in the remote logging town of Forks, Washington.

“Glen” keeps his identity a secret so he won’t lose his job because, in his line of work, being a prepper and questioning the motives of government is not appreciated.

The story line of 299 Days is as follows,

In it, the main character, Grant Matson, has a job that allows him to see what’s wrong with government. He realizes he needs to prepare for what’s coming and he does so. His wife, Lisa, is reluctant to prepare because she thinks things are just fine. When the civil unrest and political collapse hit in a dramatic way, it is undeniable that they need to leave their Olympia, Washington home and head to their cabin. But, Lisa is still reluctant; she desperately wants things to remain “normal.”

Out at the cabin, a collection of amazing–yet real–people assemble. They create their own community because the government isn’t functioning in their area. They have to work together and, as a community, they manage to achieve some impressive results. Unlike most prepper stories, in 299 Days America suffers a partial collapse. The utilities stay one (due to a spell-binding plot twist) and the government functions in larger cities. People in rural areas still get some food and services from the government, but must increasingly rely on themselves. There are no zombies or cannibalism; 299 Days describes a much more likely partial collapse scenario.

Grant’s friends, who work in government, describe how things continue to go down hill in the city and how the government is trying to maintain control. They describe exactly why the government, as big and powerful as it once was, cannot control things. Many in the military and law enforcement step in to stop the bad things; others in the military and law enforcement perpetuate the bad things.

After a while out at the cabin, some important visitors arrive and present Grant with a difficult choice. Eventually, the Patriots–the side Grant is on–are forced to take on what’s left of the former government. There is a huge battle. In the end, Grant has an important job at the beginning of the rebuilding.

Episode-1103- David Crawford and Glenn Tate on One Show? Only at TSP!

David Crawford contacted me a couple weeks ago and asked me to get the word out that “Lights Out” is being made into a full on big screen film in cooperation with Travis Sparks who has purchased the rights to the film.

We have David and Travis booked for a full interview in June (as early as the schedule permits) but I wanted to get them on for a short segment today and let you guys know about the project and how you can be a part of it.

Next up we have Glen Tate author of  The 299 Days Series. Glen has some announcements and also has just released book 5 in the 10 book series.  The 299 Days story is a realistic look at what Glen and I both consider an unavoidable reckoning as our fallacy of an economy one day hits solid economic reality.

Today Glen and I discuss many current events such as the BRICS banking initiative, the expansion of the Panama canal and the robber barren model for failed banks in Cyprus and how those events relate to the insider view Glen is privy to in his job.

Glen joins us today to discuss a bit of the plot line for book five in the 299 Days book series.

Today we discuss how and ongoing collapse will play out, how it will both divide and unite citizens and human nature during the worst of times.  We also discuss the problems creating the collapse at their core, some solutions, and why some components of the “union” may ball apart.

Glen Tate is the author of the ten-book prepper novel series “299 Days” published by Prepper Press. The books describe an average guy who prepares for, and lives through, a partial collapse of the United States.

Glen joins us today to discuss the plot lines of books three and four in the 299 Days book series.  Today we discuss what an initial collapse would look like and why Glen feels it is inevitable based on his close up insider seat within the walls of government.

We also discuss the newest changes Glen has made in his personal life, progress on “flipping his spouse” and the reality that many people within government are becoming receptive to both TSP and the message of 299 days.
