Resource Of The Week: In The Rabbit Hole Urban Survival Podcast

In yesterday’s post I talked about modern survivalist Jack Spirko and his advice for dealing with this election cycle’s intensifying insanity. I mentioned Spirko is the long-time host of The Survival Podcast, which I named a “Resource Of The Week” all the way back on March 4, 2011. Great stuff, and I still cherry-pick from the latest episodes posted on the TSP website on a regular basis.

There’s one other prepper/survival-related podcast I listen to these days:

In The Rabbit Hole Urban Survival Podcast

From the podcast section of the ITRH website:

After years of being frustrated that no one was fully addressing the concerns of urban survivalists, Aaron [Frankel] and Jonathan [Kanarek] took to the web and founded In The Rabbit Hole in February of 2010. Shortly after they’re long time friend and accomplice Jason joined the show to add a touch of “Red Neck Cajun”. Since then the show has enjoyed many great guests and a wide range of topics.

They are three city boys with a lifetime affinity for the outdoors, but a love of the city, passion for survival topics, and Libertarian Ideals…

“In The Rabbit Hole is about focusing first on the things that matter most: What’s likely to happen. Then preparing for it in a rational and productive way.”

These priorities of urban survival come from the focal points of Community, Health and Intelligence–referred to as “Survival CHI”.

Through a weekly podcast and articles, Aaron, Jonathan, and Jason remind people to “Stay safe and sound”. (Safe in person and sound in mind.)

From the Lone Star State, the trio reach out to people who are interested in taking personal responsibility for their own safety and well-being…

…And who just happen to live in the city.

While not a “long-time listener” to the podcast, I’ve noticed it’s not just urban preppers/survivalists who could learn a thing or two from the material presented. The ITRH site adds:

Hosts Aaron, Jason, and Jonathan cover topics such as:

Self Sufficiency
Food Storage
Homesteading in the city
Survival Book, Video, and Gear Reviews
Starting Off as a New Prepper
Financial Survival
Self Reliance
Preparing for Natural Disasters
Emergency Medicine
Firearms, Guns, and things that go bang
Self Defense
Disaster Psychology

Surveying the latest episodes listed on the ITRH website, episode 191, “Surviving Refugee Hell” (posted October 17)- with James Price, Founder/Director of Humanitarian Aid Security Forces (HASF)- sounds like my next listen.

Interested in tuning-in too? Head on over to the In The Rabbit Hole Urban Survival Podcast website here.

But before you do, there’s also this from the ITRH gang:

Not sure where to begin?

Two of ITRH’s most acclaimed episodes that paint a clear picture of what the Podcast is about are:

TEOTWAWKI Reality Check: What do you really need to be prepping for.

Resource Of The Week: King World News- Broadcast

As I’ve mentioned before, I like to listen to a number of financial and personal safety podcasts on a regular basis. Recently, I’ve started listening to a new one.

A couple of years ago, I happened to catch Eric King on the Financial Sense Newshour. I was pretty impressed by what he had to say, and shared the same concern he had of a “strongman” along the lines of Hitler and Stalin coming to power after a U.S. financial crash. I knew King headed up King World News (KWN), and when I finally headed over to his website to listen to one his interviews with the sort of people who correctly-called the U.S. housing bust and Great Recession, I kept coming on back for more.

Enter King World News- Broadcast.

From Wikipedia:

Eric King created King World News (KWN) in 2009 to fill a void he saw in mainstream journalism’s lack of coverage of essential information about financial markets. Each week, King conducts audio-only interviews with important people from business and finance.

In addition, King broadcasts something called the “KWN Weekly Metals Wrap” each Saturday. From the website:

We have added new segments to the KWN Weekly Metals Wrap covering gold, silver, trading and a plethora of other factors affecting the precious metals markets. I am giving King World News listeners globally access to what has long been my secret weapons in researching where gold and silver are headed directionally along with the COT Report. We Cover the Commitment of Traders Report in detail as well as a number of other factors which can influence the gold and silver market price action.

Looking back to the beginning of May, King has interviewed notable members of the financial/investing community like:

• Art Cashin (most recent)- Director of Floor Operations for UBS Financial Services & CNBC Market Commentator
• William Kaye- Founder, Vice Chairman and Senior Managing Director of the Pacific Alliance Group of Companies
• James Turk- Founder & Chairman of GoldMoney
• Andrew Maguire- Whistleblower & Independent London Metals Trader
• John Hathaway- Senior Managing Director & Portfolio Manager, Tocqueville Funds
• John Embry- Chief Investment Strategist for Sprott Gold & Precious Minerals Fund
• Dr. Paul Craig Roberts- Economist, Co-Founder of Reaganomics
• Jean-Marie Eveillard- Senior Adviser, Portfolio Management for First Eagle Funds
• Dr. Stephen Leeb- Chairman & Chief Investment Officer of Leeb Capital

I, myself, have King’s interview with James Turk uploaded into my mp3 player and ready to be listened to when (if) I have the time this weekend.

Eric manages to extract very insightful material from such well-informed individuals. Perhaps you might find what they have to say valuable too?

The latest King World News- Broadcast can be accessed on the KWN website here.
