This is a great article and a survival skill as well. The subject is salt rised bread. It is basically a wild fermented bread starter that smells a little like parmasan cheese according to the lady who runs the bakery in the video from youtube.. The article is pretty cool because it reenforces the fact that fermented foods are safer than ordinary foods. ALso the bread has a shelf life 3 x better than regular bread.
The first video on the article page is pretty incomplete. You have to watch a few more to get the actual recipe.

NOTE: You were right, the article does show using baking soda.....

I looked at the clip and the baker talks about starting with a baking soda starter so you would need some soda and after adding yeast I'm confused about what this is

David, In Wiki, the recipe mentions "other minor ingredients"
At King Aurthur website they give a recipe that mentions no yeast.
http://www.kingarthurflour.com/recipes/salt-rising-bread-recipe
The bread is supposed to capture wild bacteria and use these to make the CO2 pockets in the dough to make it rise. It also gives a fermented taste to the bread. The recipe videos are really not well thought out on YouTube and probably were part of a web page/
