Interview With Jack Mountain Bushcraft School Founder | JMB Podcast Episode 80

Episode 80 is an interview I did with a student at the end of the fall semester as part of her independent study for college credit. The audio levels are low so you’ll have to turn it up, but I think we covered some interesting topics that make it worthwhile.

We discuss the origin of Jack Mountain, the educational benefits of the 30-day primitive living experiment was a part of in 1995, the skills that really matter, and a bunch of other wide-ranging topics.

Usually I’m the one asking the questions, so this a bit of a departure from the norm. It’s a no-filter, shoot from the hip-sort of interview, so if you’re curious what I really think about certain topics, you’ll like this episode.

Not kid friendly, there are several instances of profanity used in this episode.

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.
