Episode-459- Two Years of The Survival Podcast — 46 Comments

  1. Great video, Jack! Congratulations on the best two years ever. We started listening about three months after you got started and went back and listened to all of them at that time! We have always been prepping minded and gardened, but you have given us a lot of information and inspiration to keep going! We prepare and no longer fear the future, whatever it turns out to be!
    Linda and Michael

  2. The best thing about that video is how it brings this all home. We are all real people, living real lives doing our best. We are not just a bunch of people on a forum listing to the podcasts.

    We ARE a community, and seeing some of our members and the children really puts that into perspective.

    Thank you Jack and everyone involved.

    Keep that snowball rollin


  3. Freedom and Liberty the American way. <- The Survival Podcast. 3 Cheers to Jack and the Survival Podcast Family.

  4. Amazing job over the last 2 years. I can hardly belive it’s already been that long! Time flew by but in that time, mostly thanks to you, my husband and I have changed our lives dramatically for the better. Closer to debt freedom that we ever have been, happier than we ever have been, and more focused than we ever have been on living that better life! Thank you for everything you’ve done Jack!!!

  5. Congratulations on the past 2 years and great job on the video!

    I can’t begin to tell you how much I’ve learned and how proud that I am to be associated with TSP.

    Also, ditto to what Docwatmo said.

    Thanks again and keep up the great job! I appreciate your time and hard work!

  6. Thanks for, and congratulations on, a fantastic two years! Once I saw the light in early 2009 and started to look for more of it, I stumbled onto the TSP and realized it was EXACTLY what I was trying to find. Thanks again!!

  7. Jack:

    Congrats on the two years! I have loved every minute of it and learned more than I can say. Thank you for spreading the message and sharing your knowledge.


  8. I’m very proud to say that I was one of your early listeners, just after you got on iTunes. You’ve done an amazing job Jack!

  9. Congrats on Two Years Jack! Been listening since Fall 2008. Its been outstanding.

  10. Great job on the video. Been about a year now for listening to the podcast and I love the forum. I’ve learned so much, shared a bit, and am very proud to say I joined the Member Brigade shortly after I started listening to the podcasts. The pictures prove that your message is being heard and plenty of us are taking action to make our lives better. While I don’t always agree with you, I always respect and admire your passion for what you do.


  11. Congratulations! You’ve truly earned your success and I hope you get even more of it in the next 2 years.

    Suggestion for topic: “how I did it”. Basically, how you formulated a grand strategy for where you wanted to take TSP and how you subsequently executed it. Something tells me you didn’t just wing this thing 🙂

  12. Wow, great video, Jack! I’ve been listening a year now, and caught up on the old ones. It has come in handy a few times! My wife gets tired of hearing “Jack says” around the house, but slowly she’s coming around to the prepper way of thinking! Keep up the great work, and congratulations!!

  13. Jack, saw you at Spring Thing 2010 but did not have a face to face meet & greet.
    Now that I have listened to a few of your podcasts, wish I had.
    You keep on a havin fun. You are a trophy instigator & inspirer.
    Ron, “bearbait” on Hoodlum forum & yours.

  14. @Ron if you and I are ever in the same place at the same time again, (and I am sure we will be) just come up and say hello. I am always happy to meet anyone that want to say hi.

  15. Very wonderfully made- it tells our story so well. I’m gaining back faith in America- the people that is, so many with so much dedication. I really love this video- Thank you Jack.

  16. Big congrat’s on the video! Sometimes it’s hard to remember that there are many, MANY of us out there – normal people who just want what’s best for our family and our nation. Thanks for all you’ve done and I look forward to what the future of TSP has to teach!

  17. The video was great! My kids loved it and watched it over and over, especially since they recognized familiar faces and familiar activities. After watching they ran right out into the garden and said, “Wow! Our garden has grown! Can we grow…one of these…and one of these… from the video? I can do/let’s do …this… from the video!”

    Thanks for everything Jack!

  18. Jack, Keep it up! Congrats on 2 years worth. I could go on, but it ain’t necessary.

    Thanks again and DO NOT QUIT!

  19. Jack-
    You have done a great thing here, and I’m proud to be a part of your community. You have encouraged me to make some really positive changes. Keep doing what you’re doing!

  20. Jack, from the bottom of my heart. Thank you.
    I started listening in late July or early August of 2008. I got a link to the show from the survival forum.
    In the last 2 years you have honestly changed my life. I am a better person now, and my wife and I are on a path to the life we want.

    I do have to say I miss the angry rants you did in late 2008!

  21. Jack

    Excellent notes of encouragement. I know my personal devotions have been focusing on joy (an attribute independent of circumstances) and happiness (dependant on circumstances) so your exhortations to gratitude were right on the marks.

    Your rant about Repubicans and Demoncrats “all being in the same boat and we sink or swim together” missed the mark inasmuch as a sizable cadre of them are drilling holes in the bottom of the boat. In short, they are trying to sink the boat. When “leaders” are apparently purposely working toward the destruction of liberty and prosperity, your call to revolution surely strikes a chord. I believe the tipping point is long passed, so a prepping mindset makes more sense than ever.


  22. Happy anniversary Jack! Love the video! Looking forward to another year of great shows!

  23. I’m always late for the comments. Congrats Jack! I love the video and am proud to have had a hand in it. Let’s do it again (workin’ on the one we have discussed as we speak).

    Stay true-

  24. Gregg – great song!

    Jack – Great video. First found you about 18 months ago, and I haven’t missed a podcast since. Thanks for all your hard work. You are making the revolution happen! Keep it up!

  25. Jack:
    I came in a bit late (Sept ’08) but was “hooked” right away.

    Thank you for doing what you are doing. (Can’t believe it’s been 2 years!) Great video!!

    The song: “We are Family” comes to mind for some reason. Hmmm……………

  26. vade ad formicam…Lead us as you lead yourself. Thank you for having the guts and compassion to do what you do everyday. It has awakened things in myself, that I have not visited since childhood. I thank you now, and I shall thank you in silence when I am free.




    Keep on doing what you’re doing. You are truly an inspiration in so many ways, as are a very large number of your listeners.
    I’m proud to count myself among them, right from the point you got on iTunes. That video is just AWESOME.

  29. Loved the video Jack & the best part was seeing my precious Granddaughter in it! She’s the one in the cowboy hat riding on the horse.
    I can’t wait to see your next video with more of the pictures of my comrades from here at TSP!

    Viva La Revolution 🙂

  30. Jack,
    You made me cry, your letter of appreciation to your listeners sent tears running down my face. You are an inspiration to my Husband and I, not only in “Prepping” but in living… the shows that go in to how to earn a living and love what you do, business ideas, and alike are just as important to us, if not more important than your “rice & beans” shows. You are truly a inspiration and a revolutionary man! THANK YOU JACK… thank you!

  31. Jack, this is just what I needed to share your site with friends and family. Great Job! I would love to see another 200 photos. I feel like we are family…

  32. Great job, Jack. I,ve been listening since show #9.
    A lot has changed for the better since listening. Since turning 50 this year, I’d have to say my favorite is Preparedness as a retirement plan. My daughter is getting married next year and she’s going to be putting most of those plans into action!
