 Episode-1127- Risk Assessments and Readiness Audits | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 1:33:57

TweetTime to take a real hard look at where you are, where you are going and whether or not progress is being made in your quest to be more self reliant and more self sufficient.  Today we begin with a review of my concepts of the inverse relationship between impact scale and disaster probability.  We then go into a look at assessing your most likely personal risk factors and your individual risk tolerance. From there we examine quite a few potential disasters and how they might effect you, how you would respond to them, where your are really shored up and where you are weak.  We discuss what can be done to plug the holes in your preparedness and how to prioritize what areas you address first. Join Me Today As We Discuss… What is disaster probability What is disaster impact scale Why do impact and probability have inverse relationships What does that even matter Why focusing on the mega disasters gets you hurt by the “little” ones Considering your 6 primary needs for survival Food Water Shelter Energy Security Health and Sanitation Questions to Ask How would we and how long could we feed ourselves How would this effect our shelter (house) What would we do for clean and safe water What health risks would this cause if any How long would “recovery” likely take What specific regional issues exist How would existing health issues effect this disaster Would help be available, how long would it take to come What security risks might pop up beyond the normal How would we care for pets What would the impact be on our children (mental and phyical) How do we think we would respond mentally What phyical injuries might be incurred during the onset How would we get out if we were forced to leave How would we get along if forced to stay Several Disasters You Might Face with Thoughts About Them Loss of employment Local storms A house fire Death of a family member or serious illness of the same Economic recession (more severe then 2008) Economic collapse and shift Flu or other pandemic Nuclear power accidents Any true global disaster with long term total system failure Resources for Today’s Show… Members Support Brigade 13Skills.com Join Our Forum TSP Mint TSP Gear WalkingToFreedom Sawtooth Tactical – (sponsor of the day) Knife Kits – (sponsor of the day) Remember to comment, chime in and tell us your thoughts, this podcast is one man’s opinion, not a lecture or sermon.

 Episode-1122- Examining the Future Role of the Militia in Modern Society | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 1:12:59

TweetToday I am joined by Ryan Rocquin of The Gun Runner Podcast.  I invite you to join us with a unique discussion on the traditional role of the militia in our past and the potential to reconstitute it in modern form with local control. You will hear more of a debate today then a typical discussion.  I generally don’t debate with guests but I think Ryan and I were on two different sheets of music here.  While I like his initiative and would support it I would not call it a militia, I would call it more an attempt to increase the number of reserve law enforcement officers in the nation. That is indeed an honorable goal and one I would support and I want to make clear in spite of debate that I think Ryan does a great job with his show and on matters as a whole we agree far more then we disagree.  Perhaps this discussion can serve as an example of how people with the same goals can disagree and still debate in a respectful way on how to accomplish it.  I am also of course open to the concept that I might be wrong here. Additionally Ryan published an episode specifically to supplement his views on this one.  In the interest of making sure Ryan’s view is fully heard, I am providing a link to it here.   Note – Ryan has his podcast player and download links at the bottom of his supporting material posts so scroll down below the videos to play it, the videos are only to support the show he did. Hopefully I can sync up with Stewart Rhodes soon and get him on for another angle into this issue.

 Episode-1121- Darby Simpson on Pastured Poultry and Pork and Grass Fed Beef | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 1:48:39

TweetA Pigs Life is a Good One at Simpson Family Farm Darby Simpson is the owner of Simpson Family Farm, a 7th generation family farm (1828-present) and a lifelong Indiana resident Darby grew up not realy learning anything about farming, became a mechanical engineer. He worked in the engineering field from 1994-2010. Began small scale pastured based meat farming (Joel Salatin style) in 2007. Grew the business while continuing to work off farm full time. In 2010 like many Americans he lost his job due to the recession and took the farm full time. The farm now provides his family with a full time income. Today he joins us to discuss some follow up on his first interview.  We will first go deeply into pastured poultry and discuss some of the new options for broilers that are superior for pasturing to the Cornish crosses.  We will discuss the difference between raising birds for homestead use vs. for market and why you should start small either way. We will also discus pastured pork, grass fed beef and the views both Darby and I share on the future of farming.  The importance of supporting you local farmers, the opportunity in local and healthy foods and more. We will also discuss Darby’s new business in consulting with people starting out with small scale farming or homesteading.  His new website is at DarbySimpson.com and remember he provides a discount to MSM Members as well.  Resources for today’s show… Members Support Brigade Join Our Forum 13Skills.com Join Our Forum Walking To Freedom TSP Mint TSP Gear Ready Made Resources – (sponsor of the day) Bulk Ammo – (sponsor of the day) DarbySimpson – Darby’s Consulting Business Simpson Family Farm  - Darby’s Main Website Call In Show with an In-depth Explanation of Darby’s Chicken Tractors Darby’s First Show on TSP Episode of TSP with Bryan Davis of AskBryan.com Remember to comment, chime in and tell us your thoughts, this podcast is one man’s opinion, not a lecture or sermon.

 Episode-1120- Designing Small Scale Forest Gardens | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 1:26:23

TweetThe Jujube or Chinese Date – A Great Small Tree for Forest Gardens At the presentation I just did at the Self Reliance Expo there were two main things people had major questions about when it comes to food forestry.  The first was “what trees and plants work in Texas” and that really is what will work in most of the US.  The second is how does this all apply to a small back yard or smaller piece of land. Now the new video Geoff Lawton just released shows what can be done, including with trees in small backyards.  This videos leads off with a back yard that is only 640SF.  Of course the first thing people ask then is, but what about our climate that is in the sub tropics.  Um, did anyone but me notice the main trees in the system where apples? That said I understand, it does often seem that many of the guilds (plant groupings) in Permaculture are geared to the subtropics and tropics.  Ironically the first work on Permaculture “Permaculture One” is actually geared almost 100% to temperate climates.  Today I am going to try to take this all down in size and simplify the concepts and explain how they really will work anywhere. Join Me Today As We Discuss… Small Land Holding Advantages Can be irrigated Easy to intensively manage Contain their own micro climates (easy to create more) Most work can be done by hand (build and manage) Are the most productive per square foot on the planet Do not attract attention and easy to secure Nitrogen fixers are not as critical (still a good idea) Things that are different from typical food forestry The layers are scaled down The number of support species are reduced There are few “sacrificial plantings” They don’t require swales or chickens but both are welcome Small ponds and barrels are easily fed with roof catchment Special Considerations that Open Your Options Up Shape isn’t critical, do what works Solar aspect is a major concern, but work with it Put in more irrigation then you think you will ever need Consider ponds, please consider ponds Think about power (solar first but grid is better then nothing) You can plant a LOT closer and a LOT more dense then you think If you have animals design in their nutrient flow In a larger space build “glades” and maximize the edges Build structures for your vines they can otherwise dominate a small system Fertilize (organically) a lot early on Mulch and chop and drop like crazy Trees to consider for North America Apple Plumb Peach Filbert/Hazelnut Chinese Chestnut Almond Jujube Persimmon Edible Dogwoods Pears Cherry Paw Paw Medlars Mulberry Figs Bushes and Shrubs to Consider Blueberry Blackberry Raspberry Wolfberry/Goji Berry Elderberry Gooseberry Currants Goumi Autumn Olive Sea Buckthorn Blue Honeysuckle Aronia High Bush Cranberry Ground Covers Strawberry Sweet Potato Wintergreen Salal Emerald Carpet Thyme (trailing) Cranberry Plant Anything Dense Enough and it is Ground Cover Vines Grapes Kiwi Hops Porcelainberry Magnolia Vine Maypop Other Plants to Consider Large Hip Heirloom Roses Chilean or Pineapple Guava Herbs of all types especially Parsley and Basil Flowers of all types Plant annuals directly into the sunny spots in and around this system Bamboos Honestly anything you want Resources for Today’s Show… Members Support Brigade 13Skills.com Join Our Forum TSP Mint TSP Gear WalkingToFreedom Sawtooth Tactical – (sponsor of the day) Knife Kits – (sponsor of the day) Raintree Nursery – A source for most of the plants mentioned today The new video by Geoff Lawton on Micro Space Permaculture Remember to comment, chime in and tell us your thoughts, this podcast is one man’s opinion, not a lecture or sermon.

 Episode-1118- Lou Hayes on 6 Core Tactical Skills | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 0:59:22

TweetLou Hayes of theillinoismodel.com Lou Hayes is a full-time municipal police officer (15yrs), SWAT officer (13yrs) and trainer (12yrs). He sits on a large Statewide tactical officers organization. Lou provides instructions on weapons, tactics, law, command, rescue, active shooter response and area searches (K9). He and his partner have developed a fully-integrated system to train these items together, rather than in isolated fragments. Lou and his partner teach these as part of a program around the State to various police trainers and officers. Today we discuss six core tactical team skills. They are: Priority of Fire CrossFire Flanking Cover-Maneuver Back-to-Back Cross-Clearing. These six skills are the root of ALL team movements, formations, or positions. They are combined into applications such as: patrolling, bounding overwatch, room entry, building clearing, searching, perimeter functions, site security. These team skills are being applied to preppers trying to train small communities of shooters who plan to work together on security or post-SHTF living.  Today we compare these six skills to “simple machines” (wedge, screw, wheel and lever) that combine into all other machines.

 Episode-1116- Gene “Evil Roy” Pearcey on Earth Sheltered Homes and Cowboy Action Shooting | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 1:15:26

TweetA Performance Building Systems Earth Sheltered Home After a heavy-hearted day yesterday this is a fun interview on two great subjects, one is a total bonus. Gene Pearcey has built earth shelter homes for over 30 years.  His company, “Performance Building Systems, Inc” manufactures a patented structural system used to build earth shelter arches and domes used mainly for homes and some all out shelters. They do this by producing steel structural systems that with concrete forms a shell rated in excess of 4000-psi. When sheltered with earth, the home benefits from the constancy of the earth’s temperature, greatly reducing heating and cooling expense. Additionally, the strength of the shell and the shelter provided by the earth combine to protect both the home and occupants from harm. By designing for the advantages of thermal mass and passive solar, these homes benefit from energy that is clean, abundant, reliable, and free. In fact, their system received an Award of Energy Innovation from the Department of Energy. They have also been featured in Popular Science, U.S. News & World Report, Newsweek International, Entrepreneur, Better Homes and Gardens Building Ideas, and many other magazines and newspapers. In his other life under the name of Evil Roy, Gene is an Overall World and National Champion shooter in both Cowboy action and Wild Bunch shooting.  He has his name on pistols holsters, targets.  Gene is also a regular firearms expert on The Outdoor Channel’s “Gun Stories” hosted by Joe Mantegna best known for his roll on the Criminal Minds TV show.  He was also inducted into the SASS Hall of Fame in 2006.
