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.
