I think that interview topics are valuable. You have covered almost every topic in your interview, which can be helpful in learning wilderness survival and urban survival. Also, I have visited the links you have given and the http://www.hamwhisperer.com I think is the most useful for any survivor. I have heard 2 podcasts and read the benefits of using the ham radio and how to use it. And the topic you have caused “survival when you have family” is a good choice.

Thank you for the having Brian on, he did a great job!  It's always good to hear people who take a common sense approach to preparedness.  


Brain what books do you recommend for getting prepared?  Thanks!
