Don't let the name of the show scare you away. Jack Spirko breaks every stereotype that the MSM has for a survivalist. Raised in the hills of Pennsylvania he is a former Army Mechanic. After leaving the Army Jack began working in the telecom industry eventually becoming a successful salesman. His life like many of ours was changed forever by 9/11. Jack, as he likes to say, woke up and realized that he didn't like the life he had made for himself. He had a wonderful wife and step-son, a nice house but he was spending money as fast as he made it and was in debt up to his eyeballs. So what did he do? He started over. He left Pennsylvania for Texas and began a consulting business to help companies market their goods and services on the internet. In June of 2008, The Survival Podcast was born. At the time Jack was worried about the direction our economy was headed so rather than just telling his friends and family he created a podcast to reach as many people as possible to warn them that the Stock Market was in trouble. Jack's first podcasts were all recorded in his car during his daily commute, which lead to many colorful moments and some scary moments. I recall in one particular episode Jack narrowly avoided an accident when some Assclown stopped suddenly and I nearly jumped out of my seat when I heard the sound of screeching breaks though my ear buds. After a lot of hard work The Survival Podcast became profitable enough that at the age of 39 Jack retired so he sold his business and moved to the country. Jack's full-time job now is the podcast.
The Survival Podcast is no “extremist view”, they have a very simple guiding philosophy…Take steps to prepare for the worse and develop a plan to live the life you want, if times get tough, or even if they don’t.
