Standards-Based Guide And Outdoor Leadership Certifications | JMB Podcast Episode 37

In episode 37 of the JMB Podcast, we discuss the Journeyman Certification, our standards-based guide and outdoor leader certification. To get there, we start with a history of the bushcraft/primitive skills/survival industry, how the Bulletin Of Primitive Technology and the internet got us to the point where the industry is at now, and the difference between attendance of a course and mastery of the material. We also touch on the history of the Wilderness Bushcraft Semester and how being an elite performer doesn’t necessarily make you an effective teacher.

Typos, Etc.
Anything that appears to be an error in spelling or grammar is actually the author’s clever use of the vernacular, and as such is not an error, but rather a carefully placed literary device demonstrating prodigious artistic prowess.
