528-Tools and Tactics for Self-Defense in a Non-Permissive Environment (like a school)

The tagline of RPF is "...living a rich life now..." But it's hard to LIVE a rich life if you're dead.

So I'd like to help you--and others--have a higher potential of staying alive.

I have looked and looked for practical responses to the recent school shooting and have found very few.

This is my best effort to help you with some practical solutions to the problem.

I did my best in today's show to keep it free of politics and free of guns. (To be fair, I think it's best to say it's politics-lite and gun-lite.)

Give it a listen. Even if you are frustrated by the current gun debate, I think you'll find some useful, practical ideas to help you defend your own life and the lives of others--even in a non-permissive environment.

494-Planning for Wildfires

Erin writes in and says: "I love listening to your podcast- I know you've had a few episodes recently in reaction to current events. As a resident of the Bay Area I hope you could do an episode in relation to wild fires (if there isn't a past episode I am overlooking)."

Erin et al, here are my suggestions for you!

489-Lessons From Las Vegas: A Few Practical Ways You Can Prepare For Being Involved in an Active Shooter Scenario

As we all watch and process the mass shooting in Las Vegas this weekend, I thought it would be appropriate to share a few lessons learned.

I always try to process an event like this with an eye towards the lessons I can learn.

The tactical situation in Las Vegas was impossible. I don't think you could imagine a worse situation to be in as a concert-goer. An absolute nightmare.

But, I do have a few thoughts that I think can help. And since I don't hear anyone sharing anything practical, here are my suggestions.

If you have additional practical, actionable ideas, I'd love to hear them.

480-Hurricane Irma Musings: The Thin Veneer of Civility and the Thick Adjustability of our Modern Shipping System, Storm Preps, and More

I've been busy today preparing for Hurricane Irma here at the Radical Personal Finance Global Headquarters.

At the moment, the National Hurricane Center forecasts the eye of the storm to pass squarely over HQ.

So, I thought I'd record a podcast and share a few things with you:

  • Based on watching the Hurricane Irma frenzy, I'm convinced that "societal collapse" scenarios are plausible. I learned this at Costco yesterday.
  • I'm also convinced we live in the greatest time to be alive and that there are so many tremendously powerful companies who are laser-focused on serving their customers. I learned this at Costco today. And from reading this article: https://www.linkedin.com/pulse/inside-story-what-took-keep-texas-grocery-chain-running-chip-cutter
  • The final 20 minutes of the show involves an off-the-cuff discussion of practical hurricane preparation if you decide to stay put through a storm.

Gotta run! Lots to do...
