Podcasts can serve as a fantastic source of information if you’re looking for something to fill the silence as you’re driving, working on tedious work projects, or just working around the house. And if you’re going to listen to a podcast, why not listen to prepper podcasts?
These are the shows that will help to boost your knowledge of what it takes to make sure that your family has the skills and gear to survive whatever it is that life throws its way, as well as helping you to be better informed as to what some of the threats are out there.
Just like there are a kajillion blogs out there associated with prepping (I made a list of the best), so there is with prepping as well. However, we think that this is likely to be the most comprehensive list on prepper podcasts that you’ll find out there.
