 Episode-1030- The Hands Off Self Sufficient BOL | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 1:19:33

One thing many continue to ask me about is how to have land that is productive even if seldom managed.   The true dyed in the wool, off grid BOL.  As you might imagine Permaculture is part of the answer. The key with land like this is it must be able to provide many of your needs but do so in a way that looks very natural.  Anyone passing near it must see it as mostly just scrub and woods like everything else around it. The good news is the best land to do something like this with is often the cheapest land you can buy.  Generally you find “problems” that others don’t want to deal with and either you don’t care about these problems or you have a creative solution to them.  What I will lay out today is an almost perfect system and piece of land.  Odds our neither you or I will ever get anything up to this level of perfection.  We look at it only so that we can figure out how to get as close as possible based on our resources, our budgets and our region. Join Me Today As I Discuss… Why you would want to have a BOL like this in the first place Shopping for land and thoughts on owner financing Four big must haves for others and why you don’t want them (may be) Electric Grid Access Telephone Service Grid water or easy well installation Serviced road frontage What land like this really needs to have Guaranteed right of access Surface water or the ability to create it Decent soil Trees and other on site resources Reasonable terrain Good solar access Minimal regulations and no restrictions Wildlife The Perfect Piece of Land River or stream on it Natural spring on it At least the perimeter is heavily treed Native plants that are edible Good population of wild game Large the larger the better think 10 acres minimum, 50 is ideal Some ideas for setting things up Swales and ponds then more swales and ponds Plant food forests and do so heavily Set up some sort of hard building with a metal roof Set up at minimum 2500 gallons of water catchment (potable) Use coppicing and pollarding to harvest wood Set up earth walled structures Put in an underground structure if at all possible Store as little as possible on site, hide the hell out of what you do Set up high capacity wild life feeders (including for fish) Build functional things that can’t be removed or easily vandalized Create an “earth fence” and plant it with the nastiest stuff you can find Have one way in, one apparent way out and many actual ways out Use a compound approach Consider “tiny houses” on tailors Resources for Today’s Show… Lifetime MSB Membership (limited time only closes on Friday 11-30-12) Members Support Brigade Copper Bullion TSP Gear Shop Join Our Forum ShelfReliance.com – (sponsor of the day) The Berkey Guy – (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-1028- Technologies, Products and Ideas for a Transitional Society | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 1:04:58

For Acorns to be a Food, First a Market Must be Created There are a lot of things wrong with modern business, finance, agriculture and manufacturing.  Many of us understand the current system is far from sustainable but we also know for now it is all we have.  Today I will discuss some business and product ideas that are just bouncing around in my head. Some of these are honestly very easy to do, others may require a lot more work then I imagine but most of them do have a potential to change things for the better long term. Like most ideas though, they are pretty much worthless unless someone make them happen.  Some of what you will hear today isn’t new at all, in fact some if it is how we can take old ideas and actually make them work. Join Us Today As We Discuss… First you have to understand how a market is “created” Second you must understand human nature is to be lazy Third you must understand that people naturally resist change Ideas for Transitional Products and Businesses Stop taking about acorns and make them edible in mass quantity Develop small scale affordable hullers and presses Make methane biogas but do so for others on their own sites Develop a pond based back yard aquaponics system Cheap modular (snap together) aquaponics systems Building electric motorcycles Building battery back up systems Resources for today’s show… Lifetime MSB Membership (limited time only) Members Support Brigade Join Our Forum TSP Copper TSP Gear Shop JM Bullion – (sponsor of the day) Survival Gear Bags – (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-1026- Building Resiliency in our Children | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 1:14:13

Trey Gibson of The Family Podcast Network Many of our children and in fact I personally say young adults up to about the age of 40 have become part of what is being called the “tea cup generation”.  A group that has lost the ability to solve their own problems or deal with adversity or loosing or just about anything part of normal everyday life that doesn’t go perfect. The could be no better example of this then my recent coverage of the 100K Foot Bridge Parents want so their kids can cross a 2 foot wide, 4 inch deep concrete ditch.  If you haven’t see this yet please watch it and note the real tragedy is that, the kids are not the ones with a problem, they cross the ditch without any problems, the parents are the ones who are making a big deal out of this. To me the problem is escalating and become far more pronounced.  I personally think we should call the past generation tea cups and the one they are now parenting the “delicate little flower generation”, all this only a few generations separated from “the greatest generation”?  On that note I have invited Trey Gibson of The Family Podcast Network on to discuss building resilience in our children. Trey Gibson has a Masters degree in counseling psychology and 6 years in helping parents de-stress parenting.  Trey has four of his own kids and has been married to his wife Corrie for the last 8 years. After realizing his passion of showing parents how to take much of the stress out of parenting he launched his own website and podcast called The Family Podcast Network.  There he has dedicated his time to building parents up and showing them how to better raise healthy and strong kids…while not wanting to pull their hair out. He has also launched The Family Podcast Networks sister station, The Marriage Podcast where he and his wife discuss the keys to find and keep passion and fun in your marriage. He joins us today to discuss rebuilding resiliency in our children so that they are prepared for good times or bad.

 Episode-1025- The Thanksgiving Special for 2012 | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 0:27:11

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-1021- Brad and Mike from Full Sprectrum Survival | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 0:56:01

Brad and Mike of Full Spectrum Survival Mike and Brad have been immersed in the survival and preparedness genre for over 15 years. The feel they have been greatly blessed to be able to live on a large piece of property in the middle of Florida where they have been able to dive deeply into both. Their group has a unique skill set in that we are able to create mock scenarios for ourselves both on paper and in reality and the participating members of the group must work their way through these scenarios They have documented this in their Tactical Scenario Youtube Series. At the behest of a few of their friends and people that they consider influential in the genre, they created a Youtube channel after years and years of just being watchers and listeners in the community. Brad and Mike were always in their own words, “those silent viewers that would soak in all of the information that great podcasts such as TSP and Youtube channels had to offer”. Today they join us to discuss their work and emergency preparedness. They also have a very large announcement for the prepper community that they will be sharing with us today.

 Episode-1020- Geoff Lawton on Permaculture and Blake Girardot on Maker Workshops | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 1:20:43

Geoff Lawton has a New Permaculture Education Outreach Initiative Today is a really amazing show, I promise you it will be one of the most informative TSP episodes ever.  We have two parts to today’s show. The first is about 15 minutes of a mini segment with Geoff Lawton about his new initiative to broaden Permaculture’s influence and increase its reach. Geoff is doing this though a new web based format that has many things coming.  Yesterday I released a teaser video (well 30 minutes of amazing instruction is what Geoff sees as a teaser) and the response was so great he agreed to come on TSP and tell us a bit more about it. Geoff to me is currently the most gifted designer and teacher we have in the permaculture movement.  The fact that he is now directing the movement at groups outside of the core eco centric usual suspects is huge.  Specifically now I feel he has realized how on board with sustainable design the prepper movement is and much of what he is doing is very much directed at out community. Blake’s Solar Back Up System, Built at a Maker Workshop Following Geoff’s segment we have Blake Girardot on Maker Workshops.  When Blake approached me for an interview I found the concept pretty cool but really didn’t have any idea how cool this movement really is.  Oh and just wait until you hear the synergy that exists between this concept and the 13 Skills Challenge! The maker movement is all about people helping people to be more self sufficient and self reliant via skills based creation of everything from software to artisan wood craft and anything and everything you can think of in between. Imagine having a membership to a facility where you could go and gain access to anything from a band saw to a laser engraver to a wood lathe.  Or even say a place where you could use a 3D printer to prototype an item and then have injection molding equipment to produce the new item in quantity.   Cool right?  Well, what if you could also find people there that would teach you how to use all this cool stuff? That is a thin scratch of the maker movement!  This is honestly one of the most empowering concepts I have ever heard of, and the potential to build community and skill sets at the same time in enormous.   Maker Workshops can be a way to learn a viable trade, fabricate something you can’t buy, simply learn new skills or even a gateway into a business of your own.  The cost?  50-100 dollars a month depending on the facility.

 Episode-1019- The Role of Animals in Permaculture | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 0:59:09

Properly Managed Chickens Can Convert Pasture to Forest Geoff Lawton just released a great video that represents the beginnings of an awesome new project and it fits in great with today’s show topic.  In his video which addresses preparing for future crisis with permaculture Geoff shows how chickens can be used to establish a food forest 150 square meters at a time. This is just one role that livestock both small and large can play in a permaculture system.  From talking to hundreds of people I am convinced that you can have some sort of livestock in just about any environment. To me if you really wish to branch out into individual sustainability at some point animals must become part of the formula.  Today I discuss how to do that and how to actually sculpt land with animals being one of your tools in doing so.  We discuss how to do this on a large acreage or even a small suburban lot. Join Me Today As We Discuss… Why animals in the first place, what does nature teach us Understanding soil creation both fungal and bacterial Using chickens to restore a pasture OR create a food forest Using ducks for pest control and free ranging them in “forest” The role animals play in nutrient bioavailability How improperly managed animals can destroy a system How to adapt large scale animal concepts into small scale operations Using animals in suburban environments How to even use animals covertly in suburban environments Resources for Today’s Show… Members Support Brigade The TSP Gear Shop The TSP Copper Shop Join Our Forum Harvest Eating – (sponsor of the day) Knife Kits – (sponsor of the day) Geoff Lawton’s New Video on Permaculture to Advert Pending Crisis Paul Wheaton Article on Paddocks for Chickens Remember to comment, chime in and tell us your thoughts, this podcast is one man’s opinion, not a lecture or sermon.

 Episode-1018- The Vision of the TSP DRT | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 1:06:18

Disasters are Nothing New as this Photo from 1900 Clearly Shows A week ago I floated the idea of a new group, the TSP-DRT or The Survival Podcast Disaster Response Team.  Due to a large number of both positive and negative responses on Friday I released a blog post explaining it a bit more in depth.  Today I will lay out a true vision for the DRT with far more details and a better explanation of the role I see the DRT playing in the future. I will also lay out my concepts of a vetting process for DRT Team members along with minimum level training/certifications.  Additionally I will tell you why I feel such a new group is necessary rather then TSP simply joining or partnering with an existing group. From there I will lay out my concept for on going training, drills, community outreach and “musters” along with how we can ensure that on site responders are aware of the DRT and can understand how to best utilize our assistance. There are two primary goals with today’s show… Explain the DRT Concept Fully to the TSP Community Provide a vision and starting point to the DRT Leadership Team Join Me Today As We Discuss… Why the DRT and why now Why we really do need to do this as an individual group Why I will only be an adviser to the leadership council Minimum level skills/training/certification required to be part of DRT The operations manual and making it available to other responders How responders/LEOs will be able to vet our team members in seconds How DRT will be different by providing the “most needed” items on demand The need for initial drills, non-disaster deployments and musters The primary concepts I currently have for what the DRT will do Why those that say it can’t be done should get out of the way of those already doing it Resources for today’s show… Members Support Brigade TSP Gear Shop Join Our Forum TSP Copper ShelfReliance.com – (sponsor of the day) Free State Project – (sponsor of the day) Red Cross Claims their Sandy Response was “Near Flawless” Remember to comment, chime in and tell us your thoughts, this podcast is one man’s opinion, not a lecture or sermon.
