TweetGet The Awakening at Micheal’s Website. Michael Kaye has worked in the technology arena for more than 17 years, 11 in Executive Management and the last 7 as the Founder/CEO of a successful Atlanta based IT Consulting Company. He has been married to his loving wife “Cindy” since 2006 and is a devoted step-father to “Skylar”. Michael is also very active with supporting several local and national charity and professional non-profit organizations.

Over the many years of his career he has worked with and had frank conversations with some of America’s more wealthy individuals, primary technology sector CEOs.  Some of these very stark economic conversations led Michael to a prepping lifestyle, the hard task of getting his wife on board and eventually to writing a series of novels based on his real life experience and knowledge. Michael joins us today to discuss his first book in the series, “The Awakening” and how it is both a work of fiction and an accurate assessment of the nation’s current economic health.

 Episode-1258- Food Forest Questions and Answers – Part Two | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 1:17:50

TweetTwo weeks ago I did a show called Food Forestry and How it Actually Works.  In that show I asked for specific food forest questions.  The response was so heavy that a week ago I did Episode-1251- Food Forest Questions and Answers – Part One and wasn’t able to cover all the questions by a long shot.  So today we have part two. If you didn’t listen to the first two shows, you might want to do so before listening to this show. The reason being is that this show is a direct result of questions that I asked the audience to send me at the end of the first show and the answers given on the second one. Hence much of what was covered there I will be assuming you have already heard today. The reality is a food forest is both simple and quite complex at the same time. The complexity is based on the system that develops, the massive numbers of interrelationships and the fungal networks, guilds, etc that are formed. Join Me Today As I Answer Your Questions Including… What is the human element in maintaining and established forest When, where and how do animals fit into forest establishment and management How can you tweak guilds and add species after establishment Top support trees for temperate climates Using so called “invasive species” in permaculture Guiding with trees like black walnut and pecan that are alleopathic Where to plant support trees and how far to space them The Judas tree as a support tree What is “texture in a landscape” Resources for today’s show… The Year 1258 Join Our Forum 13Skills.com Join Our Forum Walking To Freedom Get TSP Copper Sentinels TSP Gear PermaEthos.com Western Botanicals – (sponsor of the day) Knife Kits – (sponsor of the day) Where you can get “Wisconsin Pecans” Plants that do Well with Black Walnut and other juglone producers The Judas Tree – Similar to Eastern Red Bud but it fixes nitrogen.

 Episode-1256- The Thanksgiving Special for 2013 | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 0:34:52

TweetNote – You can get a full transcript of the original portion of this show here.  Many families read this and the Christmas show as part of their holidays. Today one day before the great American Holiday we stop and pause to think about what we have to be thankful for. The beginning of today’s show is new, most of it is rebroadcast of the first year I did this show. The beauty of this show is I feel it is something you can share with friends and family. The real history of Thanksgiving is actually a lot more interesting and special then many of the myths. Tune in today to hear… I have found our group of soldiers to sponsor for Christmas this year Why much of what we learn about Thanksgiving is wrong or at least inaccurate How Thanksgiving was at one time considered a “damn yankee holiday” How Thanksgiving became a way for our nation to heal and reunite How the date of Thanksgiving has often been moved around and why The truth about those big buckles the pilgrims wore and all that black clothing What feasting meant 100 years ago to our prior generation that we have forgotten Remember to comment, chime in and tell us your thoughts, this podcast is one man’s opinion, not a lecture or sermon.

 Episode-1253- Brandon Sheard the Farmstead Meatsmith on Curing Meats | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 1:06:50

TweetBrandon Sheard came into traditional slaughter, butchery and curing right after finishing his graduate work in Renaissance English Literature. After marrying Lauren, he quit his job at Whole Foods in the supplement department and started work on a small, multi-species and pasture-based farm on Vashon Island. After two years of working on the farm and managing the butcher shop, Brandon left and started Farmstead Meatsmith with Lauren. Largely self-taught in the art of traditional animal harvesting, Brandon and Lauren continue to provide the services of livestock processing and classes through Farmstead Meatsmith with a little help from 4 year-old Wallace, 2 year-old John Luke and 6 month-old Simon. Their home and business is on Vashon Island, Washington and they join us today to discuss Fermented/Cured Meats.  I first heard of Brandon from our good friend and expert council member Paul Wheaton of Permies.com.  Brandon comes with Paul’s highest recommendation. Join Us Today As We Discuss… What is curing? How does the traditional approach differ from the conventional approach? How has Bacon been commodified How does what you do on slaughter-day affect what you can do with meat when you cure it How will cured meats influence your kitchen How has modern practices of butchery influenced grass-fed beef in our country Why is most grass-fed beef trimmed of its fat What are some resources to help people regain a traditional approach? What is charcuterie How do you make a ham What should you do with venison Resources for today’s show… MSB Lifetime Membership Open The Year 1253 Join Our Forum 13Skills.com Join Our Forum Walking To Freedom Get TSP Copper Sentinels TSP Gear PermaEthos.com Bulk Ammo – (sponsor of the day) Safecastle Royal – (sponsor of the day) Anatomy of Thrift – Brandon’s Videos The Farmstead Meatsmith – Brandon’s Website Remember to comment, chime in and tell us your thoughts, this podcast is one man’s opinion, not a lecture or sermon.

 Episode-1252- Doctor Steven Lewis and Janet Lewis on Supplemental Support | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 1:01:34

TweetDr. and Janet Lewis of drsnutrition.org The professional staff at Doctor’s Nutrition relies on facts about your health needs based on low cost detailed lab work. Instead of you guessing at what is missing with your nutritional needs, and selecting vitamins or minerals over the counter that may or may not work. Doctor’s Nutrition delivers free consultations based on lab work results to help get your health back to optimal. They do this with pharmaceutical grade vitamins and minerals sold only to doctor’s. What that means to you, is that their products are generally 3 to 4 times stronger than anything you can buy over the counter. Their products are actually strong enough to move the numbers on lab work just like prescription medications without the side effects. They use LabCorp for their lab testing because it is the gold standard of labs and they have labs available throughout the United States, so there is generally one local to you in any state. So, if you are ti red of “Guessing” at why don’t I feel good, let us answer that question for you and get you back to health so you can have a life worth living.

 Episode-1251- Food Forest Questions and Answers – Part One | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 1:40:45

TweetLast week I did a show called Food Forestry and How it Actually Works.  If you didn’t listen to it you, you might want to do so before listening to this show.   The reason being is that this show is a direct result of questions that I asked the audience to send me at the end of that show.  Hence much of what was covered there I will be assuming you have already heard today. The reality is a food forest is both simple and quite complex at the same time.  The complexity is based on the system that develops, the massive numbers of interrelationships and the fungal networks, guilds, etc that are formed. However, nature does that, on our end it is really simple. Plan for sufficient irrigation or drought proofing to get it off the ground Include plantings for the 7 layers of the system, focus on trees but not trees alone Provide diversity, if you plant 7 apples in a forest, plant 7 cultivars for example and many other trees like plumbs, peaches, cherries, persimmons, etc. Focus on what you can grow, not what you can’t grow Include a lot of support trees, chop and drop them heavily Let nature do most of the work In the end it is really that simple.  Here are where problems come up.  People look at the work done in Australia and focus on the fact that they use tropical and sub tropical plants.  WELL OF COURSE THEY DO, they are in the tropics and sub tropics.  If you are in cool temperate, just use species that do well there, etc. Let me be clear for every person that says, “my land is to steep” (generally it isn’t even close to too steep but if you have a cliff face, yea, you can’t make that work), someone else says, my land is too flat.  For every person that says they are in a cold climate, someone else says they are in a warm one and both see it as a problem.  Let me put it this way, if you live where trees grow, you can plant a food forest.  Now if you are in the tundra or on the salt flats of a desert, you have a problem, for the rest of you, trust nature and focus on what grows well where you are. Join Me Today As I Answer Your Questions Including… Back yard food forests in suburbia Dealing with eastern and western slopes Building a system with longevity beyond your own years Production from a forest beyond fruits and nuts Why your backyard is better than you think it is When guerrilla food forestry makes sense and when it doesn’t Forest concepts that support bees Why do we success out nitrogen fixing trees, do any remain in the final system How to make your tree planting more economical Determining your support tree to productive tree ratios Growing vine based crops in a food forest Conversion of existing polyculture orchards to more of a permaculture model Converting partially wooded lots from native to food forest systems Resources for today’s show… The Year 1251 Join Our Forum 13Skills.com Join Our Forum Walking To Freedom Get TSP Copper Sentinels TSP Gear PermaEthos.com Western Botanicals  – (sponsor of the day) Knife Kits – (sponsor of the day) 5 Acre Permaculture Farm in British Columbia My Write Up on the Food Forest Project at Permaculture Global – NOT YET COMPLETED Remember to comment, chime in and tell us your thoughts, this podcast is one man’s opinion, not a lecture or sermon.

 Episode-1248- Preservation of Meats with Ken Strayer | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 1:14:09

TweetSimple Beef Salami Made with Morton Tender Quick Today I want to discuss curing meats.  To do that we are joined by Ken Strayer a member of the TSP audience.  Ken has been curing meats for a few years and did a great job of answering my questions on the basics of curing meats. He was however, extremely efficient and his knowledge is limited to a few types of cured meats so the interview as only about 28 minutes long.  It was 28 extremely informative minutes but my shows are generally at least 50 minutes to an hour in length. So I am adding a bonus segment on the curing of meat via biltong method to the beginning of today’s show along with some stuff I picked up on simple quick “sausage style” cures.  Those might be some cool things you can do for the coming holidays. Also next week we will have The Farmstead Meatsmith on next week.  That will be a somewhat more advanced show.  So think of this show as part one of a two part series.  This will form the basis of your understanding of making cured meats, the basic process, etc. Ken is an awesome guy, he is a medically retired US veteran who served for 10 years in the United States Navy.  He is an avid outdoorsman who spend most of his free time backpacking and fly fishing throughout the North East.  He spends the rest of his time tending to his garden and small homestead, and cooking-and a hobbyist at smoking and curing meats of all types.  A listener of the show for about three years now, a supporter of liberty, and an Oathkeeper.
