Prepper Joe....my husband and I listen to several alternative news places..some are considered pretty radical....but we have listened to one of them for over 10 years...and while somethings they say seem off the wall....we have found eventually it becomes public knowledge....you can type in their names and find their sites. To save bandwidth (because we live in the country and have limited bandwidth) my husband will either download the program, or I will listen to it in a pop up window.
List of alternative news sites- just so you know, most of these are conservative Christian sites ...Alex Jones, while he considers himself a conservative Christian, does not advertise this on his broadcasts....even if you do not consider yourself one, you can learn what is truly going on in the world by listening to the broadcasts...and ironically, they have ALL referenced one another from time to time...all are what we consider preppers and they are open about their prepping.
Alex Jones-infowars.com based out of Austin Texas
Hagmann and Hagman based out of Erie, Pennsylvania
Steve Quayle - Bozeman, Montana (He has a good website, but he speaks periodically on Hagmann and Hagmann)
Nathan Leal - Idaho -he has a maddeningly irritating monotone, and he preaches...but I like his radical thinking! hahahah!
Now, occasionally, I listen to another forum that has a podcast that is put out daily....it's Jack Spirko....and the site is thesurvivalpodcast.com He is not advertising as a conservative Christian....
It's an ok site...I don't agree with all that he says.....and I find that this forum that Mr. Quick has offers as much or more info...but occasionally Spirko has someone on his podcast that I find interesting...
For financial new, we listen to these folks
The Vision Victory- a guy out of California...interesting to listen too due to California's financial problems.
Some other interesting places to go are: Mancow and The Drudge Report
We also like to listen to a messianic Jew, Rabbi Jonathan Khan (he wrote the best selling book "The Harbinger" I will drop anything to listen to him! He is awesome...we listen so several other ministers, whom are advocating prepping, but this post is not about religion.
Yes, there is some type of broadcast playing almost 24/7 at our house....we even listen to something as we fall asleep....hahahahah! Our grown children find this maddening when they come to stay....once, after a visit...my two young grandchildren told their parents that we made them listen to the news...hahahahah!
My best advice to you is to listen and read a variety of things.... secular and non secular....and you will begin to find, that both are mysteriously lining themselves up on the same side....something my husband and I have never seen before...
Don't believe everything you read, see or hear....search different sources....consider all angles, watch what is unfolding....compare your info...make your decisions ....and most important off all....search this site for info...there are some AMAZING folks here....from a variety of positions and beliefs....and you will find a TON of great info...with none of the other b.s. that you find on other sites...
What say you other folks? And newscasts or podcasts that you listen too?
Oh one more thing....for those of you whom have non prepping spouses or mates or whatever.....put on one of these podcasts, turn up the volume so that all can hear....this works as subtle mindchange....hahahahaha!
