It turns out there are dozens upon dozens of survival podcasts. So many in fact that I could not possibly listen to them all before the impending apocalypse arrives. If you choose to listen to all of them that is your choice, however, don’t get so busy listening that you completely forget to follow their advice and prepare things. Here are four podcast you should listen to in preparation.

“The Prepper Podcast” provides listeners with survival information based on military, wilderness, and modern day survival techniques. This podcast covers everything from off-grid living, why you should build a bug-out bag that won’t break, and all you need to know about natural water resources and other water options. There are 129 episodes, which run from 25 minutes to an hour.

“In The Rabbit Hole Urban Survival” is a weekly podcast focusing on surviving in an urban area. They start you off as a new prepper, and fill you in on how to make it as an urban homesteader, preparing for natural disasters, and libertarian ideals and political philosophies. Within 210 episodes you are sure to be ready for the apocalypse.

For those of you living in the north, “Canadian Outdoor Survival” is a must listen. This podcast covers, the skill set you will need to survive the outdoors, challenges of surviving different seasons, critical survival items, fire craft, and appropriate attire. This podcast airs monthly, so there are only 15 episodes, which run from 15-20 minutes. As there are fewer episodes, listening will take up less of your time. Listen to this podcast, or risk death in the outdoors. Don’t plan on going outdoors? You never know what the apocalypse will bring…

“Survivalist.com: Survival| Preparedness| Prepper” will prepare you for surviving any disaster that is thrown your way. Their most recent episode is titled “how to blend in like a secret agent”. Depending on what triggers the apocalypse this may be the most valuable episode you listen to. Other episode topics include: when technology fails, overconfidence in your preps, how to pick a bug-out location, and what survival food to stockpile. There are currently 78 episodes running between 15 and 20 minutes.

Above all else, do yourself a favor and listen to some of these podcasts. You will be glad you did when the zombie outbreak, some form of pandemic, nuclear war, or a giant asteroid collides with some place on earth. These podcasts are available on iTunes, or wherever you listen to your favourite podcasts. Stay safe, and happy prepping.
