Mike The Blacksmith wrote to mention that BBC America will start to broadcast the new post-pandemic Survivors series (an updated version of the 1970s Terry Nation series, first aired in 2008) starting February 13th at 7 p.m. Central time. Like the recent “After Armageddon” docudrama, this should serve as a motivational tool. (But like most television envisionings of an inimical future, don’t expect to pick up many useful survival tips.)

Matt T. recommended this book: Living the Martial Way: A Manual for the Way a Modern Warrior Should Think. Matt’s comments: “While it was written for military or law enforcement members who must or may have to fight to survive, I believe it could be useful to people preparing to survive. There is a lot in there from choosing a martial art, strategy and tactics, mindset, and importantly how to train, but written in a way that is applicable regardless of what your particular martial art is. Preparedness is about training, not just stockpiling, and I think this book helps in that area.”
