Episode-1256- The Thanksgiving Special for 2013

Note – You can get a full transcript of the original portion of this show here.  Many families read this and the Christmas show as part of their holidays.

Today one day before the great American Holiday we stop and pause to think about what we have to be thankful for.

The beginning of today’s show is new, most of it is rebroadcast of the first year I did this show.

The beauty of this show is I feel it is something you can share with friends and family. The real history of Thanksgiving is actually a lot more interesting and special then many of the myths.

Tune in today to hear…

  • I have found our group of soldiers to sponsor for Christmas this year
  • Why much of what we learn about Thanksgiving is wrong or at least inaccurate
  • How Thanksgiving was at one time considered a “damn yankee holiday”
  • How Thanksgiving became a way for our nation to heal and reunite
  • How the date of Thanksgiving has often been moved around and why
  • The truth about those big buckles the pilgrims wore and all that black clothing
  • What feasting meant 100 years ago to our prior generation that we have forgotten

Episode-1245- The Veterans Day Show for 11-11-13

Thank a Vet Today

Today is Veteran’s Day and so it is time yet again for our special Veteran’s Day edition of The Survival Podcast.

I have also removed any time based references so that this version can be timeless. There is no commercial content today as the entire show is dedicated to those that serve our nation.

You will notice more music in today’s show, hopefully no lawyers for Trace Atkins, Tim McGraw or Toby Keith will come after me for today’s show though I doubt it will be an issue. Additionally you will hear the song I co wrote with Gregg Yows, “What Have You Done“. You can get that entire so for free at Greg’s Website at www.revolutionrockandroll.com

So tune in today for the story of Veteran’s Day, stories about our troops and the real reasons you should never miss a chance to say thank you to a veteran.

 

Episode-666- Jack Spirko on Rational Public Radio

Right now most likely I am on the road towing a U-Haul Trailer with Max the dog and Ralf the cat in my truck.  Behind me is my wife Dorothy who has Blackie the other dog and Alice the other cat with her.

We are on our final convoy to the Arkansas homestead.  So today I am re broadcasting an interview I gave to Rational Public Radio a few weeks back.  If you enjoy the interview consider subscribing to the Rational Public Radio Podcast, they have a lot of thought provoking subject matter very much in line with the themes in Atlas Shrugged.

There is also a special thank you at the beginning of today’s show, an MSB discount code for a great discount off your first year of the MSB and a look at what will be coming after the move.

Episode-550- 94 Listeners Tell Us What Prepping Has Done for Them

Today is a very special milestone episode of TSP.  We have come a very long way since June of 2008 growing from one listener (me) to more than 15,000 daily downloads.  The show though isn’t about visits to the site or file downloads or metrics, it is about people.  More accurately it is about you.  For the past two months I have been asking you to call in and share your personal stories about the show, the forum and in general being of the preparedness mindset.

Today we hear those calls, all of them.  The show is long today, in fact close to 2.5 hours long but there isn’t one call I would have screened out.  If you did call and don’t hear your call it means it was one of the very few that had technical issues like from a cell phone or what have you that made it impossible to use.  Also some calls seem to be cut off, those were callers that went past the voice mail time limit with out realizing it.   No calls were edited other than removing the sound of phone hang ups at the end and the dead space following it.

A few callers did call in, go over the time limit, call back and finish up.   In those cases I made my best effort to splice both parts together.  I want to thank you for making today’s show happen by sharing your personal struggles and triumphs.

Above all in your walk to personal independence and liberty remember the real message of today’s show is, you are not alone!

Episode-315- The Real Story of Veterans Day

Much of today’s show is a re-broadcast of last year but there are some new things included.  Take time today and think about all the sacrifices made by our vet, thank a vet and expect something different at the end of today’s show.

I used last years audio only because it said all that needed to be said.  To all vets out there that listen to TSP this show is especially for you, thank you for your service and thank you for the honor you so clearly demonstrate.  Thank you also for listening to TSP, that indeed is an honor for me to know how many vets out there find TSP worth taking time to listen to.
