E71: TEOTWAWKI Pitfalls

Hosts Aaron and Jonathan discuss their opinions about  TEOTWAWKI. It’s a rebroadcast of Episode 23 and a great episode for new listeners. Even long time listeners will pick up new information from this great older episode.

TEOTWAWKI is such a passionate topic in the community. Focusing on it leads survivalists to focus on improbable survival events though. This isn’t to say they can’t happen–they certainly can.

But what if we set TEOTWAWKI aside and focus on the most likely first? Would we be any less prepared?

      Thanks for the in put, James. Unfortunately, there’s only enough time in a week to do the podcast. However, I am working on some articles–to be posted later this year–that cover our core philosophies.

    What do y’all think about the threat of Iran. They may be soon able to make an EMP bomb and with there mid range missiles there are the biggest threat IMHO.

      I can’t say that I do. However, would be be very hesitate about mixing it with pepper spray. The chemical in glow sticks are quit toxic–as I understand it. There are usually federal laws prohibiting such things. Not that it’s not an interesting idea with useful benefits.
