    I forgot who this was but a guest had a future book coming out about the skills you would need to survive say a financial collapse that goes apocalyptic or from a solar flare. Like hot wiring a car & such. Any ideas what episode that was or the book? I’ve wiki’d almost every guest & can’t figure it out… Any help appreciated!!

    Great list! I have added about 30 books to my library since I was introduced to the podcast by a friend. I am at #247 now. The above link is my own joe rogan podcast book list, which includes 215 books so far. I am pretty sure I missed a few, but I am not starting over. I added everything that is on this page and will continue to update my own list as I listen.
