On Paladin Podcast Episode 16, we take a special inside look at the popular Tough Times Survival Guides, Volumes 1 and 2. These books are a collection of offbeat, unusual essays on economic survival from a broad spectrum of Paladin’s most accomplished authors.
During this episode, we will meet three of the many authors who contributed chapters to Tough Times: low-tech homestead expert Phil Garlington, former bill collector and pawnbroker Max Edison, and computer maintenance expert James MacLaren.
First we speak to Phil Garlington, author of Rancho Costa Nada, about building your own shelter, finding decent living conditions almost anywhere you’ll go, and comfortable tent living. Next we speak with Max Edison who is the author of How to Haggle and Beat the Bill Collector, about the little-known secrets of haggling, the banking industry, and protecting your money in these difficult economic times. And last but not least, we chat with James MacLaren. James is the author of Free Computers and in this podcast speaks to us about places to look for free computers and how to work them.
