Today is Friday so it is time for our ask 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 the expert council answers questions on the home schooling, trapping swarms, diesel trucks, investing, immersion heaters, farming 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.

Thanks for the show, Jack. I thought for sure you were going to play “We’re Not Going to Take It” by Twisted Sister for the ending song today! Would have been totally appropriate after the government school rant.
Did you just record that last song off your computer speakers?
Yep, not the best was it.
Did Jack say he was looking at houses??????
For my son, not for me.
This makes sense thanks for clarifying!
Right on again with the school as usual. I think at times we must be related. You literally said verbatim what I have told my family and friends about thinking for yourself, and questioning what others tell you. One of my biggest pet peeves is hearing “just cuz”, or “that’s what everyone else does/says”. Furthermore, I constantly call our current state the “pussification of America”, and even threatened to write a book entitled “what happened to all the men”.
I wrote a while ago about my boy getting stressed out over these ridiculous national tests they push down their throats, regardless of how well he excels at THEIR grading system. Pathetically, it continues at his school despite the fact that I am consistently “salt in the wound,” so to speak. Administrators literally sigh when they see me walk in the door. I have been there for everything from group punishment, a teacher writing YOUR doing a great job on my daughters SPELLING TEST, threatening suspension for my children bringing peanut butter and jelly sandwiches (1, yes 1 child in the SCHOOL was allergic), to having a policy stating they will “get EXPELLED for fighting EVEN if they are defending themselves”. I lost my shit on that one…..
Most recently I have been told the administrators have completely segregated the grades, as well as the gender’s at recess. The different grades (K-6) CANNOT intermingle, AND they have certain “sections” they can occupy during their 15 minutes of fun time (sarcasm intended). Sadly, this is in Montana for Christ’s sake. I am looking for a tutor to home school as we speak. Talk about a comparison to prison…. here it is !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!1
Control freaks should never become principals but it sadly happens. He is not the only one.
As not everyone can home school their kids, nor money right now for private school (but something to work toward) another good conversation is how to make the best of public schooling until you are able to do otherwise.
Been thinking what I would like to teach my grandkids, maybe a week long summer camp of outdoor learning activities or even half day a week class.
Re Blinded by the Light – it was actually recorded by The Boss on the Greetings from Asbury Park album, in 1972 …
Springsteen’s version is MUCH better, but I did enjoy hearing the Manfred Mann version again so I could complain again about how they butchered it, just like I did back then. 🙂
Anywhere I can hear the better version. I had a Bruce version back in the Limewire days, but it sure wasn’t better. It was really really slow, he sounded stoned and depressed.
