Today its Friday so it’s time for the expert council show. To ask a question for a show like this, just send an email to me at jack at thesurvivalpodcast.com with “TSPC Expert” in the subject line.
Today on The Survival Podcast, the expert council answers questions on diet, cooking, mead making, solar energy, sharpening, radios, investing, aquaculture and more.
In the body of your email first tell me the council member your question is for. Second ask your question concisely in one to two sentences maximum. Third any and all details after that. This is the formula to give you the best chance of getting on the air.
I do what I can to get as many of your questions as possible on the air but can’t always get to all of them. Our council is made of a wide variety of experts in everything from the tactical to the practical and everything in between.

I was really hoping that someone knew where to get that surveillance rig that you were talking about on this show. I know exactly what you are talking about. A teacher of mine in middle school was listening in on a conversation between my friends and I from a couple classrooms down. Then let us give it a go and from my recollection it was ridiculously clear from great distances. I have actually been trying to find one like it or something similar for the last couple of years but to no avail.
Is “Sonic Ear” the device in question?
If you search for ‘parabolic microphone’ there are many options at all price points.
Sonic Ear https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UMRN7YtDX1A
Yes that is it! Exactly that.
Is there a link for the mead yeasts?
MJ kept giving links to it on FB but it never showed up for me, I believe it is mostly a copy of this, http://winemaking.jackkeller.net/strains.asp
Walkie Talkie”s for Family (great option)
4pcs BF-888S Walkie Talkie with Built in LED Torch (Pack of 4)
LISTENER RECOMMENDATION: I purchased these last year and they have been super handy. First off, they allow my kids to play in the extended yard and remain in contact. The property I rent is on a 3-4 acre plot with a creek and 2 acre pond. This allows me to stay in contact with the kids while fishing, etc. The phones also feature a little flashlight, a feature the kids appreciate.
Some additional great uses we have made of these radios as a family:
> Bicycling along trails. Even when a half mile or more separated us, I was able to stay in contact with my children – both the one riding ahead and the one dawdling behind.
> Festivals, these have been great. Walking around the festival. I even allowed my 7 year old daughter some independence. She wandered to a “fairy’s table” and wound up getting herself an autographed copy of the fairy’s book. That would of never have happened if I was with her.
> Cruise, recently we went on a cruise. And while the radios are somewhat limited due to the metal walls and bulkheads. They still often helped us connect and find one another. Especially, once we discovered a nifty trick. The radios could communicate across the deck levels if we stood at the elevator areas. That proved quite useful.
I would say that they are one of the best investments I’ve made.
