The December Guest Line Up Kicks Butt

This is what happens when a man’s “better half” gets involved in supporting his work, everything just gets better.  My awesome wife Dorothy who I love dearly became our official “Guest and Public Relations” person this fall.  She has been hard at work and is responsible for many of the bad ass interviews of the past few months but just look at the line up for December.

So there you go folks how is that for a guest line up in December.  Booking Matthew Stein, Joel Salatin and Robb Wolf alone in one month is pretty damn impressive.  That’s three best selling authors in one month folks and the rest of the line up is just incredible as well.   Please take a moment to say thanks to my awesome wife Dorothy for doing such a great job.  Working with me ain’t always easy!

    Hey Jack,
    The lineup sounds Great!

    10 An excellent wife, who can find?
    For her worth is far above jewels.

    I am a new (and enthusiastic) listener…thanks for all you do – you are providing a balanced and valuable forum and I am looking forward to December’s line up – good work Dorothy!

  15. Awesome!!! My wife and I would love to hear some of your views on The Survival Podacast someday Dorthy. After meeting you in Denver my wife says I wonder why she is never on the podcast. You guys are just making the show better and better, keep up the excellent work!

  16. Way to go Mrs. Spirko, just when you thought TSP couldn’t get any better!

  17. Stein, Joel Salatin, Wolf aj

  18. Wow! That is impressive. Great job Dorothy! Can’t wait to hear the interview with Joel Salatin 🙂

  19. I am *so* looking forward to all of these interviews! Thanks, Mrs. Spirko, for the early Christmas!

  20. I LOVE family businesses! Great work Dorothy.. we appreciate your efforts to help us stay informed. 🙂

  21. I was listening to an interview with Joel just two days ago, and I wondered “Why doesn’t Jack get him on? Too many listeners for Joel to talk to???” Way to go Jack. Good thinking…

  22. Thank you Mrs Spirko. But when will YOU be on the show? We know you’re shy, but what great insight, being married to THE top Preparedness Guru. You are the First Lady of Prepping. 😉

    Great job and thanks again!

  23. Great job Team Spirko!

  24. I love all of Joel salatins books that I have read. He is my kind of crazy. I am working on doing what he does on my farm in north Florida.

  25. Glad to see Rob’s on the list. I’ve read his book & currently have it lent to a coworker.


  26. Really excited to hear Joel Salatin. The story of his land, family and methods are wonderful. I heard first about Polyface in Michael Pollan’s Omnivore’s Dilemma/In Defence of Food.

    Mr. Salatin calls himself a Grass farmer, and I sure hope he talks about it. His pasture methods are brilliant.

  27. Finally a Joel Salatin / Jack Spirko match up. Having these two men collaborate is a major win for all of us. Awesome.

  28. Thanks Dorothy!

  29. Thats awesome!! thanx Dorothy

  30. Looking great! 🙂

  31. Jack your better give your wife a raise after booking Joel Salatin. I have read about four of his books and have both of this videos. I raise my meat birds like he does and they are the best birds I have ever eaten. He will be your best interview.

  32. Nadja*isk*en*isk*ie

    Woohoo – Robb Wolf!!!

    Think I will have 5 fries to celebrate this momentous occasion – the fusion of my two favourite pod-casters on the one show.

  33. Great lineup for December. Thanks Mrs. Spirko for doing a great job. Treat that woman well Jack.
