Dandelion The Dandy of All Host: Lynna “The Other side… A Preppers Path”
Perhaps no other plant gets a worse rap than the dandelion, cursed vehemently by landscaper and homeowner alike, the dandy of all weeds. Perhaps it’s time to take a closer look at this golden beauty and her secrets, just what have you been missing.
Spring has sprung, or at least begun too! The field and lawns are turning that lush green and on a sunny day you can fairly see the blades stretch to the sun. And then what should appear, a bright yellow shaggy dot, no not one dot but hundreds no maybe make that thousands. Ugh the dreaded dandy of all, the infamous, dandelion. What’s so terrible, truly a field of dandelion is a cheery vision to behold, brilliant yellow dotting the carpet of green a pretty sight to behold yes?
Oh right, so long as it’s not your lawn. Continue reading Dandelion The Dandy of All
Herbs, Radiation, and Healing from Exposure
Host: Cat Ellis “Herbal Prepper Live”
One of the scariest scenarios for many people is surviving after a nuclear event. For a time, it seemed that the world was backing away from nuclear weapons. Recently, however, the specter of nuclear attack has returned with US and Russia sizing each other up over the Ukraine.
Of course, while there are the predictable and perennial saber rattlings from Iran and North Korea, and Fukushima is still an ongoing concern, it is the new standoff between the two major nuclear powers, the US and Russia, that is raising the most eyebrows.

20’s Country, Folk, & Jazz Music Special
Host: Prepper Broadcasting
If you like old style Country, Folk, Bluegrass music the way it was, how it was played many years ago then we have a treat for you. Tonight on Prepper Broadcasting we are going back in time, a time before you were born, maybe even before your mom and dad were born. We are going back to the 1920’s to listen to some great hits from long ago.
Many of these songs have survived the ages being re-recorded by others over the generations. Tonight we are going to play many of these songs as they were recorded by the original artists.
Have you ever heard of Kansas Joe McCoy and Memphis Minnie? A peculiar detail about Chicago Blues legend Joe McCoy is that he had a lot of stage names. Best known as Kansas Joe McCoy, he also performed and recorded as Georgia Pine Boy, Hallelujah Joe, Hillbilly Plowboy and Mud Dauber, to name just a few. Joe was married for a time to blues guitar great Memphis Minnie (who’s real name was Lizzie Douglas) and they made this classic record When The Levee Breaks together in 1929. This song was much later recorded by Led Zeppelin. Listen to the timeless original, hot off the 78RPM vinyl tonight. Continue reading 20’s Country, Folk, & Jazz Music Special
Are Your Homesteading Expectations and Aspirations Realistic?
Host: Renee “The Homestead Honey Hour”
Ask anyone who has kept a homesteading blog or Youtube channel over the last five years – myself included — and they will tell you there’s a resurgence happening of folks wanting to get “back to the land”, much as there was in the 1970’s. Becoming more self-reliant and sustainable is an aspiration shared by many. Their reasons are many: Concerns over the economy, food security and availability, wanting to raise children in a healthier environment, seeking to be closer to nature, wanting to eat meat raised humanely and grow organic produce, a desire for a slower-paced life, wanting to live off grid without restrictions, zoning, or other legalities, concerns over GMO’s, chemicals, antibiotics, and/or hormones in the food supply, seeking privacy and seclusion, and a Continue reading Realistic Homesteading Expectations and Aspirations!
