Wheres My Podcast?!

Hey hey,

So I didn’t factor in time I would have alone to actually record.

I recorded 2 podcasts over the week and was not happy with what was created.

Looking over the prepper world and looking for things to talk about, this last 2 weeks have been very disappointing. I have seen a lot of weird stuff and really having a hard time staying associated with the community.

I am trying to get things lined up to make this process better and I don’t know how I will go forward from here.


One of my ideas was to roll this podcast under a different name. Something to do with economy only that way im not embarrassed to work on it around other people or bring it up in conversation. The other is to make this podcast more sporadic and just bring on guests to talk about they are passionate in the community… Im at a loss for the moment.


With starting to work at a new job and loss of motivation to be in the survivalist community I need a week or 2 to reevaluate the show and how I want to proceed with the website in general.

I have met some great people for the show. SurvivalPunk, PrimalPowerMethod, SouthernPrepper1, all the authors, and the list goes on. That is what I have enjoyed the most and maybe thats the direction I will go.


Stay subscribed to the feed. I will post an update shortly.

  1. Just started listnnieg to your podcast. Enjoy it a lot. I will be getting some chickens very soon, as soon as we get the coop set up. Have had a garden for years and have grapes, kiwi, apples, etc. Trying to get perennials that don’t take as much work. Glad to have a show that is close to our area. Keep up the good work. You are appreciated.LanaLambertville, MI

  2. I agree with Susan. Stay flexible! Homeschooling on the hoesatmed offers up so many opportunities if we’re just willing to put aside our own restrictive expectations and allow our children to explore, investigate, play, and learn on their own. We learn by doing and what better place to do that than on your own hoesatmed!

#169 – Doomsteading, really?

Doomsteading come on.

homesteading is already sexy. Why do preppers feel the need to tacticool everything? What does doomsteading mean? It sounds like homesteading but taking it too far. Or homesteading plus security. Or needing another hobby. I don’t understand it. Maybe its just another term for marketing.

Whats a good hand held radio like a walkie talkie but better?



So I intend on burying several items including electronics, knives, and various plastic materials. I plan on wrapping the items in cotton shirts, applying tape all around them, placing them inside of 2 ziplock bags, then placing those bags inside of a 2 sq foot ish Tupperware container which I’ll be burying underground In southern Texas. Do I need to be concerned about water getting in? What would I need to do to prevent that?

  1. I would have to agree with the lack of CLOSE friends.

    I have friends, but few that I can actually depend on. I have a friend that walked for an hour when the subway shut down, to help me move. But that is only one person. I think it also has to do with age. My wife and I have older friends (some in their 60’s) that always show up. People my age don’t show up. There is a lack of expectations and people lack the concept of what is expected of them and what they should act like.

    I think the same goes with social media. How hard is it to comment on someone’s blog or Youtube video? I mean, content is being put out there for free and people have a hard time taking a second and putting themselves out there. Maybe they are worried about looking stupid or that they don’t have anything valuable to share.

  2. I think that Linkedin is an analogy for the modern employee. Before, people could just go out and have a career for 40 years. Now you have to be on the constant lookout for the next thing because your current situation is never sure. You have to constantly have to update your resume, make connections in the business world and stay in the game.

“Justice cannot mean a prison sentence for a teenager who steals a car, but nothing more than a sideways glance at a C.E.O. who quietly engineers the theft of billions of dollars.”
—Sen. Elizabeth Warren



For example, according to the Sanders campaign:

From 2008 to 2013, while GE made over $33.9 billion in United States profits, it received a total tax refund of more than $2.9 billion from the Internal Revenue Service.

G.E.’s effective U.S. corporate income tax rate over this six-year period was -9 percent.

In 2012, GE stashed $108 billion in offshore tax havens to avoid paying income taxes. If this practice were outlawed, GE would have paid $37.8 billion in federal income taxes that year.

Zika Virus Update



What can people do to prevent becoming infected with Zika?

There is no vaccine to prevent Zika. The best way to prevent diseases spread by mosquitoes is to avoid being bitten. Protect yourself and your family from mosquito bites. Here’s how:

  • Wear long-sleeved shirts and long pants.
  • Stay in places with air conditioning or that use window and door screens to keep mosquitoes outside.
  • Use Environmental Protection Agency (EPA)-registered insect repellents. All EPA-registered insect repellents are evaluated for effectiveness.
    • Always follow the product label instructions.
    • Reapply insect repellent as directed.
    • Do not spray repellent on the skin under clothing.
    • If you are also using sunscreen, apply sunscreen before applying insect repellent.
  • If you have a baby or child:
    • Do not use insect repellent on babies younger than 2 months of age.
    • Dress your child in clothing that covers arms and legs, or
    • Cover crib, stroller, and baby carrier with mosquito netting.
    • Do not apply insect repellent onto a child’s hands, eyes, mouth, and cut or irritated skin.
    • Adults: Spray insect repellent onto your hands and then apply to a child’s face.
  • Treat clothing and gear with permethrin or purchase permethrin-treated items.
    • Treated clothing remains protective after multiple washings. See product information to learn how long the protection will last.
    • If treating items yourself, follow the product instructions carefully.
    • Do NOT use permethrin products directly on skin. They are intended to treat clothing.
  • Sleep under a mosquito bed net if you are overseas or outside and are not able to protect yourself from mosquito bites.

what are the best ways to store diesel for 5-10 years to be able to run my farm equipment after shtf?

Why use gas?

I think you’re looking at this all wrong. Gas and Diesel are terrible for long term storage and not sustainable. I would look at engineer775 on youtube for gasification. Also grow bioalgae and making sure the diesel machines are setup for vegetable oil.

Backpacking vs. Tactical Backpacks for Bugout?

5.11 bag vs new REI bag thoughts.
I actually am leaning more to regular backbacks now.

Can you safely eat any eggs you find in the wild?

I believe so. If you guys know for certain let me know. remember that if you find eggs in the wild you might find a half baby bird inside. I know thats a delicacy in china but i would be able to keep that down.

Suppose an apocalyptic event had occurred and we were reduced to the Stone Age. Imagine a handbook for survivors existed, detailing how they could rebuild society. What chapters or topics would you include?

Im going to answer this one like our Rebupican Debate.
Thats a great question. Let me completely change it to something that fits my agenda
I was at the gun show and couldnt find these books when I got home on amazon. They were twice the size and packed. If you know of these books please recommend them in the show notes.

  • Prior to 2015, Zika virus outbreaks have occurred in areas of Africa, Southeast Asia, and the Pacific Islands.
  • In May 2015, the Pan American Health Organization (PAHO) issued an alert regarding the first confirmed Zika virus infections in Brazil.
  • Currently, outbreaks are occurring in many countries.
  • Zika virus will continue to spread and it will be difficult to determine how the virus will spread over time.
  • No locally transmitted Zika cases have been reported in the continental United States, but cases have been reported in returning travelers.
  • Locally transmitted Zika virus has been reported in the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico.
  • With the recent outbreaks, the number of Zika cases among travelers visiting or returning to the United States will likely increase.
  • These imported cases could result in local spread of the virus in some areas of the United States.


It seems to me that medical specialists are very worried. Think about the massive cost for society to go an entire year without births. They don’t do this if they don’t expect this epidemic to grow beyond anything we’ve seen so far.

The statistics we have been shown so far don’t quite reveal the scope of the disaster we’re facing. As of 17 november 2015, Brazil faced 400 cases of microcephaly. By January 2, they were looking at 3174 cases and by January 20, we’re looking at 3893 cases.

So, it seems that the surge itself is a very recent phenomenon. Between january 2 and january 20, 719 new cases were reported in 18 days. So, if we assume 2.8 million births per year, we find that 7671 children are born per day. If we assume 719 cases in 18 days, we’re looking at 40 children born per day with Zika, which means the situation now affects roughly 0.5% of all children born in Brazil.

Note however that the epidemic is so far concentrated in a few specific locations. Worst affected is the state Pernambuco, with 900 cases by january 3 2016. On november 17 of 2015 it reported 268 cases so far. So, between november 17 and january 3, 632 cases were reported in the state, in a period of 46 days. That’s 13.7 cases per day.

Take Brazil’s birth rate of 14.72 births per 1,000 population per year. This means we would expect 131464 births per year in Pernambuco, based on its population of 8,931,028 million people, which comes down to 360 per day. This means that in the worst hit state, we’re now looking at a microcephaly rate of roughly 3.8% of all children born in the state.

This is a very rough back of the envelope calculation, but it should demonstrate why they are so frightened of Zika. This epidemic has only just begun. They have sent their troops down into the cities to look for any stagnant water, while other countries are now asking their women to simply abstain from reproduction altogether until they have this under control. Zika hits our species where it is most vulnerable, in our ability to take care of people who would die under more primitive conditions, creating an entire wave of deformed children who will be a costly burden on their society’s social safety net until their deaths.

If thats not scary enough
