One More Day With No Show but Some Cool Announcemts
My voice is better but still pretty rough, I also have Sam Benowitz of Raintree Nursery scheduled for an interview this afternoon and I am afraid if I do an hour this morning my voice will be shot by the time I get Sam on the phone. So I will hold on doing a show today. I will air Sam’s interview tomorrow and it should be a great show. We will be discussing many lesser known and unusual edibles that are available from Raintree Nursery.
I also have a really big announcement, tomorrow afternoon I will be interviewing Stewart Rhodes who is the president of Oath Keepers. Oath Keepers is a non-partisan association of active military, prior service veterans, peace officers, and firefighters who will fulfill the oath we swore to support and defend the Constitution against all enemies, foreign and domestic, so help us God. Oath Keepers know their oath is to the Constitution, not to politicians, and they state they will not obey unconstitutional (and thus illegal) and immoral orders, such as orders to disarm the American people or to place them under martial law and deprive them of their ancient right to jury trial.
I have been a member of Oath Keepers almost since the day it started and having Stewart on will be a great honor for me. I apologize for one more day of downtime but two days of doing interviews where my guests do most of the talking will hep my voice to fully heal. We will do some doubling up on feed back shows to get caught up on the back log of those.
If you are looking for a recommendation for an older episode to listen to might I suggest, “Episode-279- The Foundational Principle of Modern Survivalism” This was a show done in the pouring rain, from the car, with the old audio. I think you will find it a good throwback and it may also make you appreciate the current audio quality of the show. For long time listeners I think it will be a bit nostalgic as well.
Gear Shop Down for Maintenance
The gear shop has finally shipped out the last of over 11,000 AOCS Copper Rounds and his now going to be down for a few days for some much needed maintenance. The gear shop will be back later in the week with a fully revamped Gear Shop with lots of great things to come in 2011!
If your voice continues to have trouble I would see an ENT physician. They have tools to look at your vocal cords.
We love your show. I’ve been meaning to mention this to you for a while but now just seams very appropriate. You need to do shorter shows! Paul Wheatons episode could have been two 50 minute shows. Keith Snow could have been two 45 minute shows. patriot nurse as well. I don’t think there is any shame in keeping episodes under an hour. I don’t think Beck, Rush or Hannitty does as much talking as you a week. (Maybe Beck does more when you count his tv show.)
Thanks again Jack and be well!
I appreciate your thoughts and understand your sentiment but please don’t tell me what I “need to do” in regard to the show I have build from nothing into what it is. My entire journey with TSP I have been told by many people (most who are very well intentioned) what I “need to do”.
What I “need to do” is always stay true to who I am, what I believe and the way I feel things should be done. Had I not done so TSP would not even exist.
I think you need to keep on doing what you’re doing. I for one know how much work it takes to put out a podcast. To be able to do one on a daily basis (concept, recording, editing, publishing) takes a hell of a lot of time and discipline. There will always be the arm chairs out there telling you what “you need to do” and some of them have good points, but you’re right on by staying true to what got you here. Besides your message, your work ethic alone inspires me Jack.
Sucks being under the weather. I hope your voice recovers soon!
I dig the longer shows. I’ve found that the additional length is totally natural due to the conversation or train of thought.
My grandpa drank hot tea with brandy and honey in it to sooth the throat and ease pain.
You do a lot of talking and with his illness I thought I’d recommend a round of products to you since you professionally talk. It’s saved me several times.
Whole Foods also has a similar product.
They contain Marshmallow Root, Osha Root, Echiancea Root, Licorice Root and some other goodies. Do yourself (and us) a favor. Heal thy throat. 🙂
Looking forward to the interview with Stewart! Thanks, for everything you do, Jack.
Can someone please ask Sam from raintree to finish his sentences with the same volume he starts with. It is extremely frustrating to listen to him have excellent points and ideas only to trail off at the end of his sentences repeatedly…
