I just wanted to take a moment and share with you the 3 homesteading podcasts that I listen to. These podcasts have provided me with so much knowledge and I wanted to make sure you guys knew they were out there.
Modern Homesteading Podcast
The Modern Homesteading Podcast is a weekly podcast produced by Harold Thornbro. This was the first homesteading related podcast that I started listening to and I was hooked instantly. Harold has a variety of show formats that he uses ranging from interviews with other homesteaders to Q&A about various homesteading topics.
What I love most about this podcast is that he always reiterates how you don’t need 10 acres to start homesteading, but rather you can start homesteading right where you are today. He practices what he preaches by always giving examples of all the wonderful things he is doing on his 1/10th acre lot in Indiana.
Self-Sufficient Life Podcast
The Self-Sufficient Life Podcast is a weekly podcast produced by Tim Young. I eagerly awake for his new episodes to pop into my podcast queue as they are always chalk full of great information. Tim and his wife Liz opted out of the rat race a few years back, started a farming business in Georgia, and have since moved out onto their homestead where this podcast in produced.
The episodes in this podcast were initially interviews that Tim narrates from other homesteaders who have opted out of corporate America and started pursuing their homesteading dreams. His last handful of episodes were about about their personal reasons for starting to homestead, their criteria for their homestead property, why they chose homeschooling, and much more. Definitely a great podcast to listen to, I highly recommend it.
Featured Voices is a weekly podcast produced by Chris Martenson. I can’t recall where I originally discovered this podcast, but I’ve been listening to it for the last couple of months now and it has been an eye-opener. This podcast isn’t directly about homesteading, but provides can’t live without information that homesteaders should be aware of.
In his podcast, Chris interviews extremely knowledgeable people who chat about the environment, economy and energy. The main premise behind this podcast is how to be prepared and how to prosper when these main areas of our world (environment, energy, economy), which are extremely fragile, start to fail. Like I said, it has been an eye-opener and it gets you thinking about topics that you may not have considered as you pursue your homesteading dreams.
So there you have it, those are the top 3 podcasts that I thoroughly enjoy and have gained great knowledge from. I hope you guys can check them out and if you have any podcasts that you recommend, please leave them in the comments below.
Until next time, God Bless and Happy Homesteading!
