On the first interview in Episode 3 I have a criticism --
This guy isn't an expert on Ham Radio or any kind of "comms" (communication).
His advice was basically "Don't get a license; it gives the government a pre-emptive warrant to inspect your equipment at any time. Buy a $50 "ham radio" and put it in a Faraday Cage. You're all set; cross 'Comms' off your list!"
First of all, a "$50 ham radio" is a cheap Baofeng VHF handie-talkie with a cheap "rubber duck" antenna. Your range would be a few miles if you're lucky. You'd know nothing about antennas, how propagation works, or how to build your own antenna (which is quite easy, one of the first skills you learn in Ham Radio).
But he doesn't even know that you'd really want longer-range communication, which would require HF ("High Frequency") which is your classic Ham Radio you see in movies like Contact. Making contact with faraway countries; stuff like that.
I was just listening to someone else who basically said "They" aren't going to be coming for your ANYTHING. Because they would risk getting killed. And when that started happening, you'd have your ʀɛʋօʟutιօn. People are fat, distracted, and comfortable right now, so they're not willing to risk-it-all by starting a ʀɛʋօʟutιօn. But start going door-to-door rounding people up, force vaccinating, stealing peoples' guns, etc. and you've kicked off the kinetic or "hot" ʀɛʋօʟutιօn. They are way more of "us" than "them" -- it wouldn't work.
It's more important to get real experience and knowledge about comms than to worry like a schizo about the FCC showing up at your door for a random inspection of your equipment. That's silly. I don't even think he's correct about that. Based on the other "knowledge" he displayed about Ham Radio, I'm inclined to think he's completely full of crap.
So ignore the part about ham radio. The other advice is pretty standard.
Know what his advice reminds me of? The classic "buy a shovel, hoe, a few pieces of lumber, 300 packs of seeds, throw it all in a shed, and cross 'food production' off your list". Anyone who does that would starve in a real sustained collapse. You have to LEARN, PRACTICE, and FAIL FAIL FAIL interspersed with LEARN. Having a few material things socked away does NOT make you "prepared". Unless it's something you're already an expert in, like matches, firewood, propane stove, etc. That goes for guns & ammo too -- if you don't put a bunch of rounds downrange, and spend many hours training in military tactics, you might as well only buy 50 bullets. Because that's all you're ever going to need. A gun newbie isn't going to be spending hours in an extended firefight. The battle will be over WAY sooner than you think. Not necessarily with you winning.
