the survival podcast is a daily (Mon-Fri) podcast about modern survivalism. The host and creator of the show, jack spirko talks about various topics ranging from preparedness to permaculture.

Here is a little video where Jack explains what a modern survivalist is:



Jack usually have two listener questions show a week. One is through email and the other one through voice messages. The rest of the week are often interviews, but sometimes also an information rich monologue on a selected topic.




You can find the show here.

Not only does Jack do a consistent podcast show, he writes tons and tons of articles about these topics as well. You can find all of those articles here.

From the website:

"The Guiding Concepts The survival podcast are Based On Include

1. Debt is cancer, it is killing our economy and killing the dreams of many Americans. There may be little you can do about the total national debt but you can control your own debt. Do so now!

2. Protecting the environment is a good thing and it should be done. That said climate change is not our most immediate danger. We are not all going to die from global warming, the evidence that carbon is the cause is thin at best. The biggest cause of the green house effect is water vapor, don’t come here looking for activist environmentalism, you will be disappointed.

3. In spite of our view expressed above we are huge supporters of alternative energy such as wind and solar. Primarily because they help to provide more self sufficiency and economic long term stability. The danger of oil is its finite nature and inability to meet long term global demand.

4. Always be frugal, never be “cheap”. One protects your financial position the other always costs you more in the long run.

5. No matter what the sheeple tell you, what you do does matter and you do control your own destiny. Live life to the fullest and understand that you have more control over your life then anyone or anything else."

Here is Part 1 of his video series entirely about permaculture:



Here he is talking about establishing a food forest, his favorite aspect of permaculture .

Not to mention, Paul is the second most frequently appearing guest on TSP, and Paul started his podcast at Jack's urging! There's definitely a LOT of overlap between the TSP community and Wheaton Nation.

I had been listening to TSP for about 7 months before Jack first had Paul on the show in 2011, and I had been following Paul for a while online, so it BLEW MY MIND when they did that first podcast- you can tell they had SO much fun during that recording, and Paul had definitely had his coffee that morning.

I don't remember exactly how I got on permies first, but I think it was mostly from Jack's interview with Paul as well.
