Financial prognosticator John Pugliano drops by to warn us of the robot revolution and Skynet taking your job. And, he’ll offer advice on how to be the John Connor of your own financial future.

Automation is quickly becoming the new boogie man in the media. This isn't without good reason: the robot revolution is on and many are killing off old steadfast jobs. Most often, we hear about this in

Most often, we hear about this in fast-food chains like McDonald's. And its rise is wrongly attributed to minimum wage hikes. These robots were coming regardless or raising the minimum wage, truth be told.

These robots were coming regardless or raising the minimum wage, truth be told. Employees have always been the number one liability and expense any business has. Robots, on the other hand, do not complain, call in "sick" (aka hung over), or do any number of other things employers and managers grind their teeth over. Not to say all employees do this, but it is a daily issue.

So this raises a few questions:

Will the robots free us or destroy civilization?

Which jobs will survive?

How will be the real winners and who will be the big losers in the coming wave of robot automation in the workplace?

Tune in to find out...

  * BitCoin and Crypto Currency Futures

  * Historical examples of automation

  * Creative destruction

  * Luddites of days gone by and present times

We sit down with author CA Rudolph to discuss his book series What's Left of My World, his writing process, and survival lessons for Dads.

What would it take to raise a strong female prepper? Two out of three hosts of ITRH struggle with this. The third just hasn't made any little preppers yet. So this is an important question for us, as of late.

But this also speaks to a big piece of our community who tend to be under represented. Women are a minority in prepper circles.

Perhaps men are wired to worry more about proactive survival measures. Maybe most of the personalities and information available just doesn't speak to them. Yet, figuring this out and including more women in preparedness is very important.

Whatever the reasons, the first step is for Dad's and Mom's to take an active role in raising female preppers. So maybe more prepper fiction with strong female prepper character is a way to do something about this. And CA Rudolph's part in this is What's Left of My World. So let's find out more about...

CA Rudolph Shares What's Left of My World:

* The inspiration for What's Left of My World
* Crafting bad guys to make you think
* Authors who inspired him
* When fiction becomes nonfiction and the implications
* His favorite non-prepper books
* His favorite prepper fiction books
* How he came to be a prepper/survivalist and backpacker
* The plot of What's Left of My World
* Why he wrote it
* Why the lead character in his book is a young woman
* The deeper meaning of the book
* The Prepper Dad's struggle

Justin Carroll stops by to discuss his bug out vehicle. To Justin, it's not a BOV; it's home, freedom, practical, and an adventure.

We're big on preparedness solutions with practical uses even if the zombie apocalypse doesn't happen. Gear and changes you make to your life should be something that makes your life better in the now. Doing things exclusively for an apocalypse become a burden otherwise. This makes Justin's approach perfect for bug out vehicles, opinion.

You see, Justin travels all over the US teaching digital and physical security. And he's also still young and unattached. So the opportunity to turn work into an extended road trip just made sense.

And, in the process, Justin has built what most of us would consider an awesome bug out vehicle.

But this hasn't been an easy, straightforward process. He's wrestled with all sorts of issues and challenges. Most of these things he overcame.

He joins us to share his trials, tribulations, triumphs, and secrets to talking to people about his unique living arrangements. (You won't believe people's reaction to this.)

Bug Out Vehicle Topics Discussed:

* Where and how this all started
* What van he started with and what kind of van he's ended up with
* Insulation
* Solar power for RVs
* Sound proofing an RV
* Building a nice kitchen
* Wiring Considerations
* How everything to do with water is the biggest limiting factor
* How to handle not having a bathroom in your bug out vehicle (clever trick)
* The process of turning a van into a livable BOV
* Design considerations and inspiration
* The single most important piece of advice Justin has for anyone getting into this
* Does this rag smell like chloroform to you?
