Survival By the Numbers - Coming in 2023!
Today, we call it “Survival”. 200 years ago they called “Tuesday”.
This podcast is something I’ve been thinking about for a long time, and I can’t wait to get started. These skills we call “Survival” and “Primitive” are the same skills that our ancestors lived every day with for tens of thousands of years. They are our birthright and they are our history. What they are not, is special.
There is a misconception out in the world that our ancient ancestors were stumbling around, scrambling for subsistence, barely surviving, practically sub-human in their intelligence. Nothing could be further from the truth!
Consider how may ways there are to fail at making a bowdrill coal. Or a fire. Or an arrow point. Or to build a decent shelter that will keep you warm and safe and dry for the long term. And that’s WITH an instructor, or a book, or a YouTube video telling you how it’s done.
Our ancient ancestors figured it out for the very first time! These incredible men and women were the Einsteins, the Teslas, the Newtons and da Vincis of their day. They were geniuses! And no one will ever know their names.
Because all these skills we seek out and learn today, they are all based in science. They are physics and chemistry and geometry and algebra. And when you understand the science, the skill becomes paint-by-numbers, and success will land on your doorstep every single time.
Coming in 2023 — A Brand New Kind of “Survival” Podcast!
Survival By the Numbers will be focusing on the Science of Survival; how all these skills fit together, and work together, to create an amazing pantheon of knowledge where flintknapping can teach you how to track and turning acorns into flour will teach you how to process clay.
You’ll hear interviews from some of the most prominent names in the industry, of course, but you’ll also hear from experts in fields you’d never expect, like neuroscience and art and physics and more. It’s going to be an amazing ride, and I can’t wait for you to join me as we learn all about science behind the skills: All about Survival, by the Numbers.
Add me to the list! I want to know when the first episodes will drop!
