The Survival Podcast

From Open Source Ecology
Jump to: navigation, search

A popular survival or "prepper" community podcast put out by Jack Spirko. Tagline: "Helping You Live The Life You Want, If Times Get Tough, Or Even If They Don't". If I heard Jack correctly on a recent podcast, they have an audience of over 5000 listeners.

Recent show topics include developing a remote bug out location and permaculture.

Hi Jack,

Started checking out your show after hearing you on the Lew Rockwell podcast. I've been living the preparedness lifestyle for years and pretty much taking it for granted--your show is giving me some fresh insights and ideas!

You may want to check out Open Source Ecology at Factor E Farm ( The project is developing open source plans for the basic tools of civilization--the Resilient Community Construction Set. So far, they have developed a tractor and compressed earth brick press and are working on sawmills, furnaces, solar generators, digital fabrication, and permaculture food systems.

I'm a donor to the project. You're welcome to contact me for more info, but a better source would be Marcin Jakubowski ( or one of the other farmer-engineers on site.
