Segment 1

  • Discussion about today being Thanksgiving. Heit says that people should learn how to go and hunt so they can get their own food. It’s a skill everyone should have.
  • If people had to kill their own meat, there’d be a lot more vegetarians.
  • Discussion about hunting.
  • Tomorrow, we have an awesome interview with Efia Nwangaza. If you don’t know who she is, then you MUST tune in tomorrow.


Song 1: “Disaster Kit” – KRS-One

Whether I like or no, we gonn survive that,
Food, clothes and shelter, we gonn find that
When you hear this sound, you know that I’m back
Hey, it’s where I put your mind at

When that disaster hit, don’t you get trapped in it
You must always stay prepared with your disaster kit
In the club you might be drunk and you may laugh a bit
But when you sober up you know it hits what you have to get
Stay prepared, never be fear for no evil scared
These natural disaster, cannot be compared
So rise and realize you will survive
In the mean time prepare yourself with these supplies
Get coils of rope and coils of wire, in a water proof container
Put all your fire, like matches and candles, and don’t wear sandals
Get some hard boots and work gloves to handle
The situation, cause when disaster hits the nation
You and your family gonn need your medication
Antibiotics, aspirins, don chronic
Even health foods like vitamins and garlic
Pain relievers, inhalers and breathes
And make sure you got something that can take down a fever
A spray bottle of water, with 10% bleach
So you can disinfect the objects you reach
And speaking of bleach, here’s what I teach
Don’t think that you can drink the water from the beach
You gonn have to drink that water from your hood
And purify the water to make sure it’s all good
Put things in order
Put 8 drops of pure unscented liquor bleach
Into the water, use only 8 drops for every 1 gallon you working
You’ll need about 5 gallons a person
With no water, things could get lethal
It’s dehydration, not starvation that kills people
So look for the water first, don’t be robbing and looting and stealing and killing
That will only make this worse
Be smart, plan ahead, save some cash, a radio, some gas
And some blow up beds
Keep your disaster kits, high on the shelf
With your weapons, you might have to defend yourself
Get a flash light, chemical light sticks and whole that
A compass, some dry food, maybe a road map
Don’t forget things like …listerine, bandages and antihistamine
Like … so when things get ill, you will survive
Cause you really got skill
You opened your eyes
After you got through your list of supplies
Check your attitude, know that you gonna survive

Whether I like or no, we gonn survive that,
Food, clothes and shelter, we gonn find that
When you hear this sound, you know that I’m back
Hey, it’s where I put your mind at

  • It would be nice if the song was longer and had a second verse. The song was packed with accurate survival information though.
  • Heit’s favorite line was, “It’s dehydration, not starvation that kills people.” It’s a reminder that you can last a lot longer without food than water. Many people would search for food moreso than water.
  • The cool thing about this song is that he took a lesson and put it to music.
  • This song reminds Cheri of the Y2K scare. Her mother prepared for Y2K with a lot of supplies. Cheri explains…
  • Heit tells the story of school children faking illness after drinking from a water fountain that smelled like bleach.
  • At some point things are gonna come to a head, and people will be forced to survive. We can get a little idea of what this will be like just looking at what happens after a major hurricane or earthquake.
  • Discussion about having drinkable water on hand and surviving in a crisis.
  • Discussion about the need for weapons in a crisis.
  • Joking about Texas seceding from the Union.
  • Heit credits his time in the military for teaching him survival and other skills.
  • Discussion about survival training.
  • Discussion about going camping with all of the creature comforts.
  • What if there was a disaster and you had no time to pack and leave right now? What if you aren’t at home when the disaster strikes.
  • Discussion about the body’s response to fatigue.
  • Discussion about fasting during Ramadan, and how it helps to condition the body to surviving off of less food.


Song 2: “The Last Day On Earth ” – Kate Miller-Heidke

Look down,
The ground below is crumbling.
Look up,
The stars are all exploding.

Hey yeah, hey yeah oh
Hey yeah, hey yeah

It’s the last, day on earth,
In my dreams, in my dreams,
It’s the end, of the world,
And you’ve come back, to me.
In my dreams.

Between,
The dust and the debris.
There’s a light,
Surrounding you and me.

Hey yeah, hey yeah oh oh
Hey yeah, hey yeah

It’s the last, day on earth,
In my dreams, in my dreams,
It’s the end, of the world,
And you’ve come back, to me.
In my dreams.

And you hold me closer than I,
Can ever remember being held,
And I’m not, afraid to sleep now,
If we can stay like this until.
It’s the last, day on earth,
In my dreams, in my dreams,
It’s the end, of the world,
And you’ve come back, to me.
In my dreams.

Hey yeah, hey yeah oh oh
Hey yeah, hey yeah

In my head I play your conversations,
Over and over ’til they feel like hallucinations,
You know me, I love to lose my mind.
And everytime anybody speaks your name,
I still feel the same, I ache, I ache, I ache inside.

In my head I play your conversations,
Over and over ’til they feel like hallucinations,
You know me, I love to lose my mind.
And everytime anybody speaks your name,
I still feel the same, I ache, I ache, I ache inside.
I ache, I ache, I ache inside.
I ache, I ache, I ache inside.
I ache, I ache, I ache inside

  • Heit felt that the song was confusing because it is unclear what her frame of reference is. Is it the last say on earth? Is she hallucinating? Discussion about the answer.
  • Her best times are when she is daydreaming about this person.
  • It wasn’t unclear whether she was talking about romantic love or some other loved one. The pain of the loss of that person are what comes across more. The best times for her aren’t even in reality, but rather the daydream is. Or, maybe the reality is the dream. It’s the last day on earth.
  • Discussion about her talking about loving to “lose her mind.”
  • Maybe this song is actually about death, or even suicide. There are lyrical clues that indicate this.
  • Maybe she is dreaming about it being the last day on earth, she uses the lie to herself that it is the last day so that she can get through it.
  • Discussion about the song being about suicide–possibly overdose to the point where she can visualize the end of the earth. At the same time she is happy because she will be reunited with the person who is dead.
  • Discussion about the reference about not being afraid to sleep. When things are bad, sleep is hard to come by.
