todays episode is on food storage, but that’s not the only big news there is a listener contest in this show also so don’t fast forward through the news and updates in the beginning. but anyway , i talk about the different things that you can use to help grow your food storage to get past 90 days. i am sorry about the background noise i was driving my 92 s-10 which is louder than the car i normally drive also i am still getting over my bronchitis and my voice shows it towards the end of the show.
