Comms for Preppers with a Special Ops Guy

March 20th, 2019

In Episode 22, we’re joined by NC Scout, a former special operations communications guy. His website, Brushbeater, is a gold mine of information. We talk about practical, do-able things preppers can do for comms. In the After Show for Patreon supporters, we play our new game: Live or Die. It’s a game Shelby and Glen developed where we look at someone and instantly assess whether they’ll likely live or die in the Collapse. It’s full of stereotypes, generalizations, and “judginess.” There is no political correctness here. After playing the game, NC Scout discusses his view of the future of America and what the Collapse will look like. Fascinating stuff.
