Social Media is a great way to stay connected. While some of our members seem to shun it as a technology that can’t be relied upon in a major global disaster the reality is we prep for everything from the mundane to the insane at The Survival Podcast. Just as we don’t shun a car because one day gas may not be available we use social media within its limits to maintain connections in good times and bad.
Many families have gotten messages out to loved ones during disasters with technologies like twitter and facebook, we use them as part of the show to provide additional content and keep you updated. There are a variety of ways you can connect with me on Social Media.
- The TSP Facebook Fan Page - This is the best way to connect with me on facebook. I don’t take personal friend requests on facebook unless I know you on a first name basis, the total number of requests I receive makes this impractical. However I am on facebook almost every day and spend more time on the fan page then with my personal profile. To connect with me on facebook just go to our fan page and click “like”.
- TSP on Twitter – On twitter I am TheSurvivalPodC, while I have a personal twitter account I never and I mean never use it. If you connect with me on twitter I tweet show updates, articles that don’t make it on the show, cool videos and personal stuff, like cheering or complaining when the Pittsburgh Steelers are playing a game. If you do an @ mention to me on twitter I will most likely respond and probably follow you back as well.
- YouTube - My YouTube handle is “survivalpodcasting” and I have over 50 videos available on my YouTube channel and add to it all the time. You can watch my videos, subscribe to my channel and even friend me on YouTube, I generally accept 100% of YouTube friend requests. If you have a channel you want me to subscribe to, send me a message on YouTube and I am happy to add it to my subscriptions.
- The TSP Forum – I am “ModernSurvival” on our forums. I only get on the forums a few times a week but look forward to seeing you there. Before you join our forum you may want to read my article about “Getting Along in Our Forum“.
While I use all of the above platforms if you want to talk to me or ask me about something the best bet is a direct email. I am terrible about responding to facebook messages. I simply can’t answer 100% of emails but I do my best, my email is jack at thesurvivalpodcast.com. If you are sending in a question or comment for use on a listener feedback show put “question for jack” in the subject line.
If you are sending it directly to me for a direct response don’t use that subject because all mail with that subject is set aside for screening for on air use.
