Grab a seat and have a fireside chat with Christine & The Real’s | Real Economic Survival
Mr. and Mrs. Real have been homesteading, prepping and homeschooling for over 10 years. These down to earth Prepper Folks tell it like it is with a no holds barred discussion about survival, homesteading, and prepping for long term sustainability. They’ll be talking about what you can do whether you’re in an urban, suburban, and rural lifestyle. Go to home page 8:00 pm/Central tonight for live show.
From Tornados to Earthquakes and everything in between, we will discuss how Mother Nature can give you days to seconds before disaster strikes and what you need to know to survive. As this week I witnessed at a distance how Mother Nature can turn your life into ashes in a matter of seconds leaving those affected with nothing more than the short on your back. What do you need? How can you plan for the unknown? Join your host, Karen of In Time of Disaster on this player as she talks with guests and callers about natural disasters and how can you prepare for them.

The Homestead Honey Hour, Noreen (Atticus9799) was your hostess. The topic of conversation was: Canning 101! So many people seem to have so many questions. Every week the Honey’s get asked lots of questions about canning. What’s the difference between pressure canning and water bath canning? I don’t have a pressure canner, can I can my chicken in a water bath? How long do you need to process meats for? Can I make jam without pectin? What is pectin? What is the difference between jam, jelly and preserve? The number of questions can make your head spin. Some of the information is so important that if you don’t know the answers, you can actually hurt yourself or your family. Canning is an important life skill, not just for preppers, but for everyone who aspires to give their families healthier foods. So make sure to Listen in below as many of these questions were answered. Go to home page archived shows

The Hubris of Prepping
By Chris Watson “ The Prepper’s Poitin Hour. ” on American Preppers Radio
This past Monday I was inspired to do my show on things that I have seen on forum boards with increasing frequency. I am seeing people who call themselves preppers who display an astonishing amount of base behavior that does not lend itself well to the furthering of the movement nor to the ideas of prepping and survival.
I am seeing more and more people who display a superior tone in their online postings and want to be judgmental of others without knowing anything about them. These are a small but vocal minority of people who seem to have insecurity and ego issues that cause them to seek out the forum boards to chest thump, bully, and berate. These are people that, frankly, are not showing good coping skills or socialization skills and I wonder about their mental preps.
Then I see the posts from the bloodthirsty and selfish. These are people that have the mentality that because they have secured a life raft, then others have no business on it. How sad. These are people who say that they will meet people coming to them for a cup of rice with a bullet. How charitable. Then there are those who profess a love of liberty but advocate a return to slavery, though they may euphemistically couch it in any number of ways? Welcome to the Sudanese States of America, folks!
Finally, I talked about those preppers that seem to WANT calamities to happen. These are people who WANT to save themselves and save the world to re-make in their own image. They want to be a messiah. This messianic complex is understandable but disturbing, nonetheless.
The vast majority of the prepping community is not like this at all. They are folks of varied walks of life and with many things to offer that seek to fellowship and learn with other likeminded people. They are being tarred with the same brush as those with the superiority and messianic complexes because they do not have the heart to chide these selfish people publicly.
Being a prepper does not make one superior to others, it simply makes one better prepared! Listen to this show in player below!
