E88: Part 1 Surviving X: The Breakdown of the United States

Hosts Aaron and Jonathan discuss surviving the collapse of the United States.

For the month of October we’re going to exercise one fictional survival scenario a week. It’s a fun way to play through ridiculous situations. And a great way to have some fun.

But don’t let that detract from the deeper message of each episode. While silly, each one shows how it’s really all about the basics.

    A great place to land your Russian Sub or sail boat is Canada. Friendly people, Large edible animals (moose), natural materials, maple syrup and a short ride, so the people on the boat are happier.

      Excellent idea, Lee. Although we’re partial to warmer weather, we hear Canadians are fun.

    Hey guys. Just came across you podcast and like it so far. Getting caught up on previous episodes. Nothing to do with the episode, but wanted to mention a funny thing I noticed is how your voices sound alot like the two guys from Mythbusters, so now i have that image of you guys when I listen. Hope you don’t take any offense to that. lol
