0287 - Another MUST HAVE App to Increase Your Personal Safety

/
I don't feel like the app should take the place of a counter top SAME radio but is serves as a great supplement so get a hold of the NOAA Weather Radio App. Take a listen to today's podcast to see how you can use the NOAA app to stay safer.

0238 - Using your Smart Phone to Lead a Safer Life

/
Three years ago I would not have been able to imagine a world without cell phones. More than any other thing invented in recent times they have made our lives more efficient. The ability to communicate on a whim with virtually anyone allows our lives to be more flexible and spontaneous. This past holiday I chuckled when my dad busted out his circa 2004 flip phone. The reason I laughed is because it isn't about the phone any more. They are all in one do it all gadgets that have become essential in our lives. Yes, we could survive without smartphones, but for now we don't need to, so why not use them to help us when the chips are down!

0226 - Dress for Cold Weather

/
I don't know about you, but the start of fall and winter do not mark the end of my time outside. Many people are quite uncomfortable when they spend time outside in frigid temperatures. Staying warm is not a complicated procedure but it does take some understanding of what is making you cold and how you can mitigate the effects. Tune in to hear some of the ideas I have on staying warm when the weather gets chilly!

0225 - Preparing for Cold Weather CCW

/
I really do like the cool weather of fall and winter. I know it doesn't come without its complications, but at the same time, I feel more able to mitigate those challenges than I do the challenges of hot weather. Today we are going to take a look at how we can more efficiently carry our self-defense tools in cold weather. The tips and tricks apply to all of the tools you might choose to carry, but we will focus on the handgun as our primary example. Enjoy the show, enjoy the season and have a great day!

0207 - Beat the Heat

/
This week the heat is going to be on in the US. We can expect crazy hot oppressive weather and whether we like it or not it can have a pretty drastic effect from discomfort to death. If we understand how heat can effect us and we take some time to prepare for it, hot weather becomes little more than an inconvenience. Check out today's show to gain an understanding of how heat can effect us and what we can do about it!

0177 - SAME Weather Radio Reviews

/
What I have been calling weather radios are really emergency radios. If you were listening to yesterday's podcast you may have heard them in the background letting me know about a warning in a neighboring county. Pretty awesome technology. Today I talk more about SAME technology, and the radios themselves with a specific suggestion for which radio I recommended.

0172 - Weather Radios and SAME Technology

/
Without a realistic assessment of the threats we face and the consequences of those threats, the preparations we make are at best a shot in the dark. I have been thinking about some ways that I can shore up our severe weather safety plan and SAME technology is one of the tools I will be testing out.

0142 – Gearing Up For Summer Carry

/
Back in October or November which seems like forever ago I discussed preparing for winter carry and the issues that tend to present themselves when we add additional layers of clothing. Today we head in the opposite direction. As I mentioned yesterday I jumped on an airplane to head to Florida to visit family over the weekend. The warm weather was an excellent reminder of the issues that pop up when we molt from our winter wear into short shorts and tube tops.
