Episode-1914- The Challenge of Getting Others on Board with Prepping — 5 Comments

  1. Dear Jack… Just beginning to listen to this episode and this quote caught my attention: “absolutely nothing good came of WWI “? I’m afraid you’re mistaken. After that war Poland regain its independence after 123 years of being torn between 3 neighboring empires. It was back on the map of Europe.

  2. I would be interested to know the age of the wife that ‘won’t eat tomatoes from the garden.’
    There is indeed a behavioral trend with kids only wanting to eat packaged foods, and I don’t know how long it has been going on but I suspect somewhere around 1990. Somehow only food purchased from the grocery store or a restaurant is fit to eat. Ramen and noodle soup packages are ok, but homemade soup is ‘disgusting.’ I think kids have developed some type of mental dependence on consuming packaged foods that have consistent shapes and individualized packaging. The food industry intentionally sells an attitude with their foods aimed at children. For a look at what I consider to be evil, look no further than the packaged food and drink industry. Even some of these people develop a conscience though. Interestingly, the creator of Lunchables never fed them to his own family.

    “This idea — that kids are in control — would become a key concept in the evolving marketing campaigns for the trays. In what would prove to be their greatest achievement of all, the Lunchables team would delve into adolescent psychology to discover that it wasn’t the food in the trays that excited the kids; it was the feeling of power it brought to their lives. As Bob Eckert, then the C.E.O. of Kraft, put it in 1999: “Lunchables aren’t about lunch. It’s about kids being able to put together what they want to eat, anytime, anywhere.””

  3. Hey,

    The link to the commercial free version doesn’t seem to be working, it’s taking me to some index locations with the following at the bottom
    Apache/2.2.31 (Unix) mod_ssl/2.2.31 OpenSSL/1.0.1e-fips mod_bwlimited/1.4 Server at Port 80

    I’m planning on giving it to a few people as an early Christmas present.

  4. Sorry, you can ignore my previous comment, I just misunderstood the page,
    It has a link to download the mp3 file.
