EPISODE 260 WHY TRUMP WON

Well it has happened. President trump has been inaugurated.

Now its official president Trump is now the 45th president of the united states. There are still many that are baffled why Donald Trump won the election. I decided to put together a podcast to try to explain why i think Donald trump won the presidency. I was reading an article about why Donald Trump won in Wisconsin. It surprised me while i was reading it because it was like i wrote it myself. So i decided to do a podcast on what i thought.

Now do i think President Trump will fix everything ? I don’t know. Will he make america great again? I sincerely hope so . For people to  hope for him to fail is insane, its like hopping on a plane and hoping the pilot isn’t very good at his job and crashes the plane with you on it. It just doesn’t make any sense if you think about it logically.

Am i a big President trump supporter? Well i think i will sit back and see how he does while i still work towards personal independence. I would advise you do the same while watching what the government does. You may not be able to directly influence what they do, but you can influence those around you. If enough people do that we may see real change.

EPISODE 258 MAT BEST AND ARTICLE 15 CLOTHING

In today’s episode i want to talk about some people that help inspire me to get shit done. I know this isn’t very “survivally”  but i do want to remind you this show isn’t all about survival and prepping , its also about living in the here and now. One of the people that inspire me is Mat Best, CEO of article 15 clothing , and  star of his own YouTube channel  mbest11x .

He is not alone in his success though, along with his friends and business partners Jarred Taylor, Vincent “Rocco” Vargas , and Ross Patterson, they also have a wildly popular podcast called Drinkin Bros.  It is made up of many members of the military community, and includes all of the branches of the us military. Now  this doesn’t mean this is just a military show they have a lot of civilian listeners too. you can find all of their stuff on  Facebook, and Instagram too just search for drinkin bros.

This weeks episode is on vacationing for survival,  Why is that important ? Mental health thats why! As preppers we can get caught up in the doom and gloom of prepping. Also sometimes we need to get away from a stressful job or need to have dome quality time with your kids or your husband or wife. So today i share some of my experiences of my vacation to Mackinac island  with my wife. i have been there several times with my wife and daughter and i am sure i will go back several more times in the coming years. i also have some thoughts on what would happen if there was some kind of disaster such as a pandemic and you were trapped there.

Help support the show!

Hi everyone!

I just wanted to share some improvements to the site with you guys.

We now have a members area where you can get exclusive discounts to companies that support the show. In the members area we also have over 175+ downloadable pdf plans that you can use to build some really neat projects. These are old articles from magazines like Mechanics Illustrated, Popular mechanics and others. They are copyright free from the 50’s, and 60’s.They are back from when guys building things in their garage and workshops was normal everyday life. There is also going to be exclusive videos and podcast from me there as well. I am going to try to get some free E-books for you in there as soon as i can find some authors willing to participate in the members area.

The price for the members area is 35 dollars a year. This comes out to roughly 67 cents an episode. We also have 6 month and monthly options. You can sign up here http://lostskillspodcast.com/membership-account/membership-levels/ .

If you don’t want to sign up online Email me at jeff@lostskillspodcast.com and i can set you up an account manually. I am also open to barter. just send me an Email and we should be able to work something out.

Next thing i want to talk about is the LSP store. we have two different types of store, an Amazon  A Store and the regular store.

First the lets talk about the A store. This is a place where you can find products that are recommended by me. They are products that i either own or have had positive feedback from people i know. all you have to do is go through the link on my store page and just buy what you would normally buy. It won’t cost any more to buy these things on our store than if you just went to amazon and bought them that way. If there is something you guys highly recommend let me know and we will get it up on there.

Next lets talk about the regular LSP store. The LSP store is a place where we are selling some products to help support the show. The inventory will change here periodically depending on what we have available. These are products we offer in limited quantity to see what we want to have here on a permanent basis.

So far we have a  complete vegetable garden kit, which has everything a first time gardener needs. We also have a Survivalist’s Seed Cache which has over 30,000 heirloom seeds in Mylar bags stored in a ammo can.

We plan on adding some other products as we can find sourcing for them or time to make them.I have plans to start producing fire starting kits and char cloth and sell them on the site as well . Like i said these are limited in quantity so get them while they last and help support the show.

The last way you can help support the show is to go to the site and go to the right hand column and use the Amazon affiliate link when you are doing your regular shopping on amazon . It wont cost you a dime and its just another way to support the show. you could click here as well. any little bit helps support what we do here.

Well i guess i am done pimping my stuff now LOL !! I just wanted to let you guys know what i have been busy with lately. Thanks for listening to the show!!!! As well as putting up with my shameless promotions!

Jeff

EPISODE- 155 I’M NOT DUMB ENOUGH TO FALL FOR IT ANYMORE !!

Hello everyone,

today’s episode is titles i’m not dumb enough to fall for it anymore. and what is it you may ask? it’s the thinking that electing any one at the national level and expecting them to make a difference is a waste of time. does that mean you shouldn’t vote ? NO! it doesn’t mean you shouldn’t but it means you could always go with the third party option.i also talk a lot about contacting your local legislators and the things you can do to try and make your voice heard.

EPISODE-129 THE BENEFITS OF LIVING YOUR LIFE FRUGALLY

Hello everyone,

todays episode is on  living your life frugally so you can weather the financial storms that life will throw at you. In my case it was a chance the company was going to unionize and the possibility of going on strike or loosing, pay or benefits.

i apologise for the poor audio this was made using my mp3 player in my car . all episodes from here on out should be recorded with my  voice recorder, so the audio should be much better. also i somehow skipped this episode so they should all be in order now .
