In this episode Alana Barfield joins hosts Aaron and Jason to discuss what may be the ultimate survival challenge. Could you survive Naked in the wilderness with only two manmade survival tools? Sounds pretty tough–don’t you think… Well Alana is back to tell us all about it: The truth, the fiction, and everything in between. […]

In this episode Aaron interviews James Price of Death Valley Magazine. Yeah, it’s going to be that kind of show. Admittedly most of us have never been shot at. Even fewer of us have had to shoot to at others. And even fewer still have ever been in areas where a full collapse has taken […]

Join us today for an interview with the great Paul Wheaton of Permies.com on Rocket Mass Heaters, growing more with less effort, things that go boom squish, and all things permaculture. Paul Wheaton is like an encyclopedia of permaculture and homesteading. But when people hear permaculture, rocket mass heaters, or live stock they think it’s not […]

In this episode hosts Aaron and Jason interview Dr. Mark “Merriweather” Vorderbruggen Ph.D. on foraging for wild edibles. Foraging for wild edibles is a huge topic. And there are many myths and misinformation about the topic. Some could make you ill–some could have you pushing up daises. But in ‘Landscaping for the Zombie Apocalypse’ we […]

In this episode hosts Aaron and Jason discuss all things beekeeping with Michael Jordan of A “Bee Friendly” Company Inc. And a special on why Aaron is mad at Jack Spirco. Let’s face it, bees and beekeeping scare the crap out of most of us. But in this episode Michael brings us into his world, shows […]

A big happy new year to you all. Hopefully everyone that’s been listen has joined us in this new year. And, with the New Year, we should all take a look back, be grateful, and realize we did, in fact survive another year. There were no EMPs, an economic collapse didn’t happen–yet, there were no […]

For some, a simple plastic $2 match case will do. But for those of us that understand the importance of being able to start a fire, plastic just won’t cut it. Meet the newest edition to our little gear shop here at ITRH: K&M Match Cases. And some of you may remember our match case […]

In this episode hosts Aaron and Jason interview female survival badass Alana Barfield. She’s a life long survivalist/prepper both in a rural and urban setting. Often women feel unrepresented in the community. Their voices don’t get heard enough. Their concerns and needs aren’t talked about regularly. However today we get a chance to hear from a […]

Silent(ish), but deadly. Meet the Bow Mag: Bullet enhanced arrow head. Recently, Jonathan sent me an email that simply contained a link and said, “I’m not even sure why, but I really want this.” I watched the product demo video scratching my head. Yet, I was also left wanting to buy a pack of Bow […]

Recently I made a big change: I moved away from leather holsters in favor of Kydex. (It felt a little dirty at first, admittedly.) For years I stuck almost religiously to all metal guns and traditional leather holsters. But as time went on the discomfort of wagging around a boat anchor on my belt became […]

In this episode hosts Aaron and Jason do a follow up interview with Jesse. And this time we dive even deeper into sailing for preppers. But, before we do–and to bring you back up to speed, Sailing is becoming a big topic around where. Why? Because Sailing may be one of the perfect methods of […]

Recently, I had to fly to Phoenix with my handgun. And this sparked a search for a new gun hard case. Admittedly, I already had a perfectly good Pelican case. But I’m always up for looking at new toys. And that’s when I ran across the Prepper Handgun Case. (The name caught my eye–I’m simple.) […]

Think Ponchos aren’t exciting? Maybe you’ve never seen the Hazard4 Poncho Villa Technical Soft Shell Poncho. (Not to be confused with Pancho Villa–the Mexican Revolutionary General.) I’ve always carried a Poncho in my BOB and car bag. I like them because they’re more versatile than a rain coat and fit over gear–not just your body. But, admittedly, […]

In this episode Aaron interviews a listener about sailing. As many of you know, sailing has recently become a new topic on the show. So when a long time sailor and listener offered to come on and tell us all about it, we jumped at the chance. Sailing for preppers might come pretty naturally. You […]

There’s something decidedly awesome about Tomahawks. Maybe it’s the little boy in me that wishes he was still out climbing trees, building potato cannons, riding BMX, or playing Cowboys and Indians well past an appropriate age… Maybe it’s because they are actually a useful tool. (Maybe both. And that’s ok too.) Recently, Gerber released the […]

Shine a light on what your gun is pointing at with the Steamlight TLR-1 Rail Mounted Weapon Flashlight. Why would you want a weapon mounted light? Glad you asked, because it is very important. Here’s why: If you can’t see what you’re point a gun at, you can’t in good faith pull the trigger–or at […]

In this episode hosts Aaron and Jason discuss Aquaponics with Rex from South Texas Aquaponics. Growing your own food may not seem as exciting as fighting off the zombie hordes, tactical training, or a host of other things. But feeding yourself is the one of the very few things that’s a daily part of survival–whether […]

Today we have a review of the Deep Concealment Universal Harness by Phoz. It’s something different for your Friday Gear Report viewing pleasure: A video. Who’s Phoz? He’s a long time ITRH Forum member. And recently he did a review of the Deep Concealment Harness. When he shared it with the forum I asked if […]

In this episode hosts Aaron and Jason discuss how not to raise chicks, the survival skill of sailing, and the scourge of the sea. It’s sure to be full of information and a few laughs, as always. The results of our latest experiment (however half-assed) with chickens are in. Through the experience we’ve learned several valuable […]

In this episode Hosts Aaron and Jonathan meet up in Austin Texas for an unfiltered discussion about guns, knives, silencers, ammo, and other stuff. Guaranteed to be a fun, albeit long, episode. Aaron goes to visit Jonathan in Austin. And since Aaron and Jonathan haven’t gotten to hang out in person in a while, the […]
