Episode-1186- Joel Ryals on Raising the Next Generation of Men

Joel Ryals of Dunetos K-9

Joel Ryals of Dunetos K-9

Today I am joined by Joel Ryals of Dunetos K-9.  Joel has been on TSP before to discuss how he trains dogs and how dogs can play an important role for the prepper.  While that was a great interview that you can hear at this link, today’s show is far more important.

Today Joel joins us to discuss his new training program know as the Dunetos Training Program.  According to Mr. Ryals

In 1960, 70% of young men showed maturity by the age of 30.  The opposite is true today.  By the age of 30, some 70% of young men are not ‘grown up’ and the trend is only accelerating.  Dunetos Training Programs (DTP) was established to meet this critical need.

Joel’s training program takes young men though a variety of leadership, wilderness, tactical and adversity based skill sets.  The goal is to produce men that can be the leaders our society needs them to be.  Men who will raise children in the same manner, be solid husbands, entrepreneurs and warriors for liberty and freedom.

Episode-732- Leadership and Its Role for American Survival

No not the leadership of our vaulted elected officials, our military commanders or even your boss at work.  No today I am talking about personal, family and general community level leadership.

Lee Iaccoca wrote a book called “Where Have All The Leaders Gone”, there are some shocking revelations about Cuba and Castro’s multiple attempts to work with the US in it but other than that it is basically a political piece on why we need a new leader in the White House, a real leader who knows what it means to lead.

My thought when I hear this question though, “where have all the leaders gone” turns to the average American male and to a slightly lesser degree the average American female.  Where is leadership in the home, where is leadership in our neighborhoods, where is it at the ground level?

At one time the American man was the epitome of leadership, standing at the front of his family, willing to make any sacrifice and more importantly willing to make any tough decision, this has been largely replaced with an attitude of “whatever”.  So what happened, how do we fix it and what is the payoff if we do.

Join me today as we discuss…

  • It all started when equal rights were mixed up with equal ability
  • Men must again be men and woman must realize they are not men
  • Survival of our nation, culture and family unit is at stake here
  • Every problem we have caused or aggravated by a leadership deficit
  • Leading is not ruling, it is not dictating it is based on action
  • All authority is granted, leaders must earn their authority
  • All good leaders also must know how to be led
  • A good leader can’t do everything and he/she knows it
  • The tale of two communities of shepherds
  • Great leaders must be determined, strong and compassionate

Episode-490- Establishing Local Resource Knowledge in Advance of Disaster

You often hear in the Survivalist Community that local resources and in fact all resources will quickly come under pressure in a major disaster.  While true there is also the old adage “the early bird gets the worm” along with the fact that “normalcy bias” will often keep competition low during early and even middle states of a major break down.  Hence it makes a lot of sense to be knowledgeable and aware of your local resources now before any need of them arises.

Join me today as we discuss…

  • The three types of survival knowledge
    • General
    • Localized
    • Specialized (skill based)
  • The importance of organization and leadership
  • Finding edible plants in all seasons during “peace time”
  • Establishing sources of water and purification
  • Preserving food with out power and refrigeration
  • Cultivation of wild crops (guerrilla gardening)
  • Knowledge of local wildlife (all of it)
  • Trap building skills
  • Knowing your local geography
  • Establishing distances and travel times
  • Knowing how to get out, where you will go
  • Keeping a low profile
  • Being a leader
  • Strength in numbers
