When anyone first begins to think about preparedness I believe it’s not only important to get off on the right foot, but get your information from credible sources. That’s why I decided to write this post and list 10 helpful podcast episodes for new preppers. We also have a list of 40 great YouTube and Prepping website here.
Every prepper on the planet, regardless of how advanced they are have been a beginner at some point in time, and faced some of the same challenges. Quite a few of us have fallen for the gimmicks and hype, and some of us still do.
Prepping can also be very overwhelming at first. With so many directions you can go, and with so many needed supplies, it’s hard to figure out what your game plan should be. It does become easier in no time at all, but at first it seems like climbing Mount Everest.
SPP252 10 Helpful Podcast Episodes for New Preppers
This weeks show was basically a recap of some of the shows I think would be helpful to new preppers. This isn’t a “best of” episode because quite a few of our podcasts and articles are geared towards new to intermediate preppers.
Also, If you don’t do the whole podcast thing, that’s OK, Along with each podcast episode we have written a full article about what we talked about. If you have time later, I suggest you do listen to them though, they go into much more detail about that subject.
The Prepping Basics
While we focus quite a bit on general preparedness here at Survivalist Prepper, it can be difficult to weed through the other articles and find the articles for new preppers. I have put this series of beginning prepping articles together, and will continue to add to it in the future.
The 10 helpful Podcast Episodes
Preparing at Home: This isn’t a podcast, but it is an article that goes into what you should do at home when you first begin prepping. It also has a couple of downloads that will help you with inventory and rotation.
Water Filtration With Kevin Reiter: While making sure your water is clean isn’t brain surgery, it can be pretty complicated at first. In this podcast “Water Filtration for Preppers” Kevin and I talked about what you want a water filter to do, and also what some of the most popular water filters can do.
Prepping Supplies You Can’t Skimp On: In episode 227 Lisa and I talked about some prepping supplies that you can afford to use a lower cost product, and some prepping supplies that need to be good quality.
The Necessary Conveniences: In this episode titled “The Necessary Conveniences” was a fun episode. Lisa and I talked about some overlooked supplies, and some things we need to try and maintain our sanity in a disaster type scenario.
What Should Go In Your First Aid Kit Part 1 (And 2): This episode is an oldie but goodie. This podcast about first aid kits goes all the way back to when Lisa first joined me on the show. Lisa is an RN, and in episodes 1 and 2 she went through basic first aid kits, intermediate kits, and advanced first aid kits.
The Different Types of Prepping (And Preppers): In episode 207 of the Survivalist Prepper Podcasts we talked about how preppers get labeled a certain way on TV, but the reality is much different. Preppers come in all shapes and sizes (literally) and each of us have different needs and challenges we face.
Organization and Storage Ideas for Preppers: As you get further into prepping, you will inevitably run into storage problems. In this show we talked about some ideas to keep everything as organized as possible. If we stay organized, we not only reduce waste, we also have a better idea about how prepared we really are.
How Will Different People React When the SHTF: This is a hotly debated topic in the preparedness community, and for good reason. How different people react in a crisis situation will directly affect what happens to us. In episode 138 Lisa and I talked about what me might expect from people when the chips are down.
Some of the Most Likely Disaster Scenarios: Because each of us get into preparedness for different reasons, I think this is a good podcast episode to listen to. While we should never disregard and disaster scenario, there are some that are more likely than others.
What Are The 6 Areas of Preparedness?: This is one of those things that experience preppers take for granted, but for the new prepper it’s very important to keep in mind. Our preparedness plans should be well balanced, and focusing on the 6 areas of preparedness help do that.
10 Tips for Beginning Preppers: The final podcast episode I suggest you listen to is our podcast on tips for new preppers. This is a great episode for people who are just beginning and not sure where to start.
