Jack Spirko of The Survival PodcastIn 2008 Jack Spirko founded The Survival Podcast where he coined the term modern survivalism, a philosophy based on 12 tenets that lead to self-sufficiency, self-reliance, independence, and personal liberty. Throughout the over 1690 episodes of the daily podcast, he has explored systems design at every level from personal safety to food production to business systems to large scale communities and the degree to which these are all connected. Jack is a student, practitioner, and teacher of Permaculture Design and sustainable agriculture. He has also been a long-time entrepreneur and proponent of small business.
