American Survival Radio is Joe and Amy Alton’s second and latest podcast, focused on current events, health, and politics. It is separate and distinct from The Survival Medicine Hour, which continues as before focused mostly on health issues as they pertain to preparedness and survival. If you’re interested in Survival, your own and that of your country, we bet you’ll like both!
In this episode of American Survival Radio, the Altons explore the Orlando shootings and come to a disturbing conclusion: that there are millions of soft targets for a gunman and that a repeat of this event can and will occur again and again in the uncertain future. Indeed, Omar Mateen’s attack on the Orlando PULSE nightclub will become the blueprint for future attacks: crowded venue, no armed patrons, lots of noise, and late enough for most club goers to have had a drink or two (not the best recipe for situational awareness).
Also, President Obama is close to his goal of handing control of the internet from U.S. hands to that of a global organization. The Alton explore whether this is really a good idea, or will authoritarian regimes take advantage and make the internet a less free place? Will Congress block the move?
