The Prepping Dilemma. Preppers Will Be Overrun – By Family And Friends When SHTF

I’ve been blogging for 14 years so I know what I want to achieve when I write a blog post. I failed miserably with this one. The Prepping Dilemma.

My answer was, “Pocket Casts on Android. 16 podcast subscriptions I never miss.”

Another member of the group, Ben W., asked what are those 16 podcasts. I thought that would make a nice blog post topic so here we are. Thanks Ben. 🙂
