Out Back with Jack – Epi-3028 – The Survival Podcast — 6 Comments

  1. Haha. I love that you referenced Salty cracker. Been following him for a while now. Always good for lolz.

  2. I actually followed Mike Adams articles back in 2005. He was into the truth then. Now he’s a total alarmist who sold out for the money. He sells MRE’s and acts like you could live for a year on them. If you ever looked at the ingredients on those you might be surprised. Total chemicals. I think they are more for temporary situations then your main food source. Great show again Jack.

    • I lived on MREs alone for 60 days on one deployment. On another I lived on two cooked meals and 1 MRE a day for 197 days. They absolutely will keep you alive and EVERYTHING is made of “chemicals” water is a chemical.

      Don’t get me wrong, tons of garbage in them but you can survive on them. When you go to Ranger School’s RIP program (basically a test to get into Ranger School kinda like BUDS for SEALS) you live on one MRE a day for almost the entire time. That was 4 weeks when I was a solider and it is 8 weeks now.

      NOTE – I am not and was never a Ranger and did not even go to RIP. I was like all at Airborne School told about it and coaxed by recruiters. One of many reasons I said FUCK NO was this living on MREs crap. To get in I would have also had to of extended my enlistment. I just know about it, that is why I bring it up here.

      So yea Adams is scum, Adams is a huckster, Adams is a con man, Adams is a yellow journalist but he is not wrong that you can live in MREs. Also I don’t think he was ever worried about truth. I just think he was more clever about hiding it back in the day.

  3. What happens if Spotify censors, and Apple censors? That’s exactly the question Adam Curry had 18 months ago, and that’s why he and Dave Jones (Epi-2936 started Podcasting 2.0 and the Podcast Index.

    It was so when the large platforms eventually start removing podcasts, podcasting would still be preserved as a platform for free speech. The Podcast Index has over 4 million podcasts in the index, including every podcast Apple has, and the database is free and opensource so anyone could start their own directory tomorrow by cloning the Index.

    If a podcast you follow is all of a sudden not in a podcast player you use, get a better player at Every player there uses the Podcast Index for their podcast search, and all of the developers are in it to preserve podcasting as a platform for free speech.
