The Survival Podcast

Survival Podcast Banner detailJack Spirko was kind enough to have me on his Survival Podcast recently where we talked about deer deterrents, chickens, and using a blog to promote a personal micro business.

I really enjoyed an episode he did this year with fruit expert Dr Lee Reich. Jack has a natural way of making his guests feel welcome while packing in some valuable information.

Nice interview Mark. Been AWOL from the net and your blog for about a year. So hearing this was a good catch up on what you guys have been up to. Bummer about the deer eating the sweet potatoes.

Have a great holidays!

Nice interview. I really like the time you all spent talking about greens. I'm dedicating a pretty good section of my new book to growing greens. Good greens are hard to come by at the grocery store, but so so easy to grow in the garden.

I'm glad you were on TSP, now I have a new site to explore. I want to get your books and hopefully chicken waterer spigots soon..
