Normalcy & Abnormalcy bias, finding Balance!

Normalcy & Abnormalcy bias, finding Balance! 
Host: Denob “The Prepared Canadian

NormalcyAs preppers, we are all familiar with the term “normalcy bias”.  A state of mind in which people ignore the obvious in preference of perfect world syndrome, where even though bad things happen, they will either not happen to you, or will be of little to no consequence if something does.  Those that suffer from normalcy bias often scoff not only at the thought of whichever conspiracy theory has become popular that week, but also are either oblivious to, or ignorant of every day threats that are on the six o’clock news almost every day.  Never mind the idea of the economy not being as good or stable as we once thought it was.

Devices for Survival!

Devices for Survival!
Host: Denob “The Prepared Canadian”
Devices waka waka power 2

A growing number of preparedness items that the typical prepper has in their kits are run by batteries. From Iphones to AM/FM radios to ham HT’s and flashlights, these low power devices need juice. There are several ways to keep them charged, either with their built in batteries or with rechargeable NiMH cells. So just what is the best way to keep the power up in all those devices?

Medical Preparedness!

Medical Preparedness
Host: denob “The Prepared Canadian

MedicalThis week I have a special guest for you, well two special guests actually. Dr Bones and Nurse Amy will join me to talk about medical preparedness. I had the pleasure of getting in touch with the Altons a few years ago and have learned so much from them that I couldn’t possibly cover everything in one podcast. However, we did have time to talk about their book, The Survival Medicine Handbook, now in it’s second edition as well as lots of other topics like using conventional and natural medicines as a compliment to each other, using fish antibiotics for people, and pandemic preparedness.

The Survival Summit In Review

The Survival Summit In Review
Host: Denob “The Prepared Canadian

Survival Summit -150x150This has been a long week of reviewing for me, and as a matter of fact, I just couldn’t fit the final day in before having to record the podcast.  The Survival Summit is a 6 day long presentation of interviews by survival and preparedness experts from all aspects of the mindset.

Brought to you by the guys behind The Prepper Project, this event has proven to be overflowing with information ranging from food preservation to battle techniques.  I’ll go over the presentations day by day and point out my favorites and what it was that made them hit the top of my list.

All Is Not Lost On Non Preppers!

All Is Not Lost On Non Preppers!
Host: Denob “The Prepared Canadian

Non PreppersLast week, I took a break from recording in order to go back to my hometown to help out some non preppers. On December 22, between 20 and 40 mm of freezing rain fell on several towns in the Eastern Townships of Quebec. Not only was this very reminiscent of the 1998 Ice Storm, but in this case many of my own family and friends were left without electrical service for up to a week, meaning a dark Christmas for many.

Non PreppersI took the opportunity to take a tour of the region and offer my help and advice to those affected. Without outing myself as a prepper I was able to help at least one person get a generator set up, which surprisingly started a chain reaction in the neighborhood. To my astonishment there were no comments like we preppers usually hear, about how our homes will be a gathering point of the less prepared. Instead, a neighborhood became interested in becoming more self reliant in the face of future power outages. Read more “All Is Not Lost On Non Preppers!”

Being Prepared To Survive

Being Prepared To Survive
Host: Denob “The Prepared Canadian

In the end, I think I brought myself to a revelation as to just what it means to be a prepper

PreparedNever have I been so hard pressed to come up with a show description as I am now. When I first sat down to record this episode, it was intended as another general chit chat type of show covering an eclectic collection of thoughts on various topics. What it turned out to be was so much more than I ever expected. The show went from explaining why we shouldn’t concentrate so much on specific possible events and focus simply on losing systems of support to how we define ourselves as survivalists or preppers and why using a word and it’s dictionary definition is simply not possible.

PreparedDuring this week’s show, I’ll also talk about “American Blackout”, which was supposed to be an episode all to itself, but I felt that it could be condensed into another thought process, so long as the biggest lesson to be learned was brought to the forefront. Also, I bring into the conversation the idea of current events as a prepper/survivalist raison d’etre, and how this is really a matter for all people to be concerned with, not as an issue for us alone against the sheeple.

In the end, I think I brought myself to a revelation as to just what it means to be a prepper, or a survivalist, or a whatever you want to call yourself and the voyage throughout the show is neither straight, nor centered on any one specific topic. I hope that you seriously listen to all the individual topics that I started out with and see just how it all rolled out into something I certainly never expected it to.
