There you are: building that bunker or shelter, canning and storing food, stocking up on ammo, making your escape plan, and counting down the days until the world ends - and the zombies come.

Again.

We've been through this drill before, but that doesn't stop people from continually predicting the doom of mankind.

This time it's supposed to happen on December 21, 2012. Of course, some folks are just worried about a terrorist attack, natural disaster, or unforeseen event that could interrupt life as we know it.

The good news is you don't have to go it alone. As a matter of fact, there are all kinds of radio shows and podcasts that specialize in topics related to surviving the big one. Let me list a few for you.

The Armchair Survivalist Radio Show - This program is hosted by Kurt Wilson, founder and CEO of Survival Enterprises. Wilson was a co-host for a conservative radio show for five years in Modesto, California and has also written Internet articles under the name "The Gunrunner."

The Armchair Survivalist routinely covers firearms, health, food, politics, animals, fishing, hand crafts, and basic preparedness.

This radio show is available on short wave 9.480, 5 - 7 p.m. EST on Sundays. If that's not possible you can listen through your browser by going to this link and catching the satellite feed through Global Star 5.
