Sharknado Preppers

Prepping resumes with the discovery of a new prepping show! Like many others, this one takes the formula of the first to market and attempts to put its own spin on things with memorable characters and situations. We like it. Also, in anticipation of the upcoming Sharknado 2: The Second One, we give our own tips on how to survive a Sharknado. Trust us, we’re experts!

Huge thanks go out to everyone who backed my Kickstarter project for Opposing Forces! The funding was successful and now the work of putting the book together really begins! Updates will continue to backers and on the project’s own web page.

Magic Apocalypse

darksword adventuresYou thought the end of the world had already come and gone, right? Not so much. The word “apocalypse” means “sudden awakening”, as in the sudden realization of new information or a new state of being. Prepping for a doomsday scenario is less about waiting for the world to end than about embracing new ways of thinking about the world we have. Is the apocalypse around the corner? Are we about to have a radical shift in the way we think? It’s worth considering. This episode Curt and I prep for the coming of the rifts, or since we don’t want to tread too heavily on any one magical paradigm’s toes, the sudden and irreversible onslaught of a magic in general. The segment ends kind of abruptly due to … uh, microphone apocalypse? We conclude with the next installment of Rock the Dragon!

Action Hero Apocalypse

Author Phil Elmore joins me in the Reaction Chamber to talk about current projects from The League Entertainment. Duke Manfist now has a novella for Halloween, Thanksgiving, and Christmas. All of them available for free at the moment. The season one collection, Bullets Babes and Bacon is coming soon, and more information is on the way. Of course, with Duke Manfist making an appearance during our season of Doomsday Prepping, I have to get Phil’s insights on how to prep for the action hero apocalypse: what to do if you suddenly find yourself playing sidekick to a bona fide action hero! We also talk a bit about Phil Elmore’s works of self-defense education, including Flashlight Fighting and Street Sword. Find works by Phil Elmore and the other League Entertainment authors at the following locations:

 

Extra-Terrestrial Apocalypse

It’s a full-blown war of the worlds here in the reaction chamber. Curt and I get our prep on for the coming day when the aliens invade our shores. We know its coming. You know its coming. It’s up to us to convince all the poor saps who just won’t see the light that the visitors are not our friends! It’s a short prep, but we put some basic things in our prep kit and review a smattering of historical documents. The Martians are coming!

Robopacalypse

A short, unexpected break over the holidays for the podcast, but at least we got the shopping apocalypse preps done in time for Black Friday! This time around we are prepping for the rise of the machines, the steel reign, the coming of the berserkers. This is the Robopacalypse! Curt and I take a look at the historical documentation providing evidence that the machines will rise, and examine some of the commonalities they all have in, er, common. This lets us get our preps together, anticipate the ways in which the machines will rise, and put some gear into our toolkits. The machines will rise, they may already have taken over our world. We’re prepped. Are you?

Shopping Apocalypse

Curt and I are back in the swing of podcasting and prepping for a fresh round of apocalyptic events. Spurred on by the return of Doomsday Preppers to the National Geographic Channel, we prepare for the Shopping Apocalypse of Black Friday. Plus, our take on the hot news of Disney’s buyout of Lucasfilm. Stick around and get prepped!

The Simon Vector Enigma

Author Phil Elmore joins me in the reaction chamber to discuss the new novel from The League Entertainment, “Simon Vector”. We talk a bit about building the universe of Simon Vector and delve into a sneak peek at the background of this sci-fi space prison action novel. Elmore gives us a glance behind the curtain at what it’s like to develop a transmedia property and what it means to The League. We also discuss other project that Elmore has going on both with The League Entertainment and on his own. A mention is made of the megatrain anthology The Spirit of St. Louis, Elmore’s latest Mack Bolan adventures “Radical Edge” and “Final Judgement”. Since the interview, I’ve read through “Radical Edge”, and this is one of my favorite Phil Elmore adventures to date. Of course, no interview with Phil Elmore would be complete without a mention of the world’s manliest action hero, Duke Manfist. Since this is the season of the doomsday apocalypse, we close with some practical prepping advice from Elmore on personal survival and a pointer at some prepping resources readily available.
