From the daily archives: "Thursday, July 13, 2017"

This week, we look at part 2 of our Preppers and disasters episode. We have fellow podcaster Brian Duff on the show, courtesy of our good friend, Kevin Reiter from the Wilderness Safety Institute. Brian’s podcast is called the Mind 4 Survival Podcast (Mind4Survival.com). Also on the show is our weather expert Kyle Nelson and our sponsor, Dr. Joe Holley from Paragon Medical Education Group.

Kyle Nelson, Kevin Reiter, and Brian Duff all talk some about the possibility of a solar flare. They also talk about EMP or an Electro-Magnetic-Pulse that something could be used as a weapon against modern western societies to take down their electrical technology. Kyle talks about a new weather satellite sent up that also had EXIS sensors (Extreme Ultraviolet and X-ray Irradiance Sensors) installed to detect large solar flares.

Brian also shares his experiences in South Sudan as a paramedic. He talks about the challenges of dealing with patient care in that kind of austere environment. Given all the places he went in the Middle East and Africa, Brian said he’d most like to return to Africa for the way it challenged his medical skills on a consistent basis.

Check out this episode and if you have questions, leave them here or on our new disaster podcast Facebook Group.
