This week we’ve got Ben Logan of New Age Primal back on the show. Ben was a guest a couple of months ago back in episode 59. We talked about his background and what he is doing with New Age Primal now. Make sure to go back and check it out to get an insight into Ben. Today’s chat is focused on everyday survival, why it’s important and how we can train it. Ben was also gracious enough to introduce me to his good mate, Dr Greg Emmerson who appeared back on the show in episode 62 for another fantastic chat. Ben is a bit of a competitive dude so he seemed a little dark when I told him that Greg’s episode had more downloads than his, so to help him out if you like what you hear today make sure to share this episode out with your mates and your groups.

Some of the topics we cover today are.

+ The difference between every day survival and extreme survival

+ The psychology behind survival

+ The importance of regular training to keep our knife sharp

+ Why prevention is better than cure

+ The ability to process what is wrong but also understanding what is right in our environments

+ How to train situational awareness

+ Improving our conscious processing of information

+Utilising the STOP process

+ Progressively exposing yourself to more uncomfortable situations

+ The balance between preparedness and paranoia

+ What he has in his survival kits

+ Advice on getting those things you don’t enjoy done
