In this weeks episode Chris, Dave, and I decided we really needed a break from politics, the election, Covid, and every other mass media buzz words or hyped agenda pieces. Instead of current events, we decided to give you a topic that is actually worth your full attention: food independence. Most of us have heard an army travels on their belly, so does everyone else. We talk about why it is important to be able to produce or find your own food whether it be for your health, better quality, or to get away from government control. Along with the why, we also talk the how between growing, foraging, hunting/fishing, or raising livestock. Storage is also an important factor and we touch on food preservation a little.

Our anonymous listener or troll question of the week was “what is your favorite animal to eat?”, which actually timed out great with our topic. Please remember you can submit your own random question about anything, and use a fake email if you want to stay anonymous.
