How Poeple Really React In a Crisis

Some people think that everyone will come together during a crisis, In this episode we talk to Brian about how people really reacted during the recent West Virginia chemical spill.

What he saw was what we all think will happen, people fighting, looting and forgetting about morals. This is also a great example about why we should be preparing and why we should look at as many different scenarios as we can, because we never know what will happen.

I love these real life examples from people who have actually gone through what we think about everyday. Some of my favorite podcast interviews are with people who have had first hand experience. Here are a few that I have done in the past…

Selco: Surviving 1 Year in Hell

Kyle: 41 Days in the Wild

Bennett: Surviving Hurricane Katrina

This weeks Survival Tip

In an article from Survival Cache they talk about using sunglasses to maintain a tactical edge. It is true that the eyes are the window to the soul and hiding behind a pair of sunglasses could hide the fact that we are nervous, scarred or being deceitful. You can read the full article here. 

Academy Updates

In the beginning of the show I mentioned that I am working on updating the Survivalist Prepper Academy. The first step in this process was moving the website to a new URL. Existing members, or anyone who would like to become a member can access the Academy at

Be Prepared For Everything

I also talked about my book that was just published to Amazon and has been very well received. You can find the book here. As I wrote in the description of the book it is not all about doomsday and as the title says we should be prepared to face anything. Here is part of that article…

Preparedness should be a mindset, not a fad. To become a seasoned prepper we need to start from ground zero and work our way up, and we need to do it in a way that doesn’t put us in the poor house. Preparing is also very personalized, there is no one way to build your food storage and no one way to build your bug out bag. All of our situations are different and we need to plan accordingly.”

Survival and being prepared should not only be a passion, it should be a lifestyle. The definition of a prepper is "An individual or group that prepares or makes preparations in advance of, or prior to, any change in normal circumstances, without substantial resources from outside sources" Like the Government, police etc. I don't believe that the end of the world will be the "end of the world" I believe it will be the end of the world as we know it now.
