Last Show Recap

Survival Skills

Bruce Lipton, Ph.D., an authority in bridging science and spirit, and a leading voice in new biology, discussed his belief that that if we use the 50 trillion cells that live harmoniously in every healthy human body as a model, we can create a new "super organism" called humanity, as well as how cellular studies point to such concepts as immortality, spirituality, and mind over genes.

First hour guest, college instructor Mitchel Townsend reported on his research paper which he believes proves that a Bigfoot-like creature resides in the Mount St. Helens area of Washington state.

Survival Skills

Show Archive
Date: Saturday - October 13, 2007
Host: Ian Punnett
Guests: Cody Lundin, Todd Gallagher

Founder of the Aboriginal Living Skills School, Cody Lundin shared survival tips from backwoods self-reliance to urban disaster mitigation. Less than 7% of the US population is prepared to deal with a disaster, he reported. The biggest cause of death in such situations is from hypothermia (cold) or hyperthermia (heat), so regulation of body temperature is key, he said. Having alternative heating/cooling sources is useful, he noted, adding that individual homes typically have "microhabitats" where one room will retain heat or be cooler.

During the Katrina disaster, many victims did not know simple ways to disinfect water. One method he described involves putting water in a plastic liter container (the kind that soda is sold in) and simply leaving in the sun for six hours. The sun's UV radiation kills off germs.

Lundin also discussed how to deal with a corpse during a disaster, noting that dead bodies don't spread disease, unless they died of one. To keep up morale among the living, it's important to have some type of closure ritual for the deceased, even if they are just being temporarily buried or wrapped in plastic.

Staged Exhibitions

First hour guest Todd Gallagher spoke about his new book Andy Roddick Beat Me with a Frying Pan. Through staging a series of often absurd exhibitions, he was able to settle a number of sports debates.
