Jason Akers is known for his articles in Backwoods Home magazine as well as his podcasts – The Self-Sufficient Gardner and Hunt, Gather, Grow, Eat.

Interview: YouTube’s Sootch00!!!

It is my pleasure to present an interview with Don (aka sootch00) – the owner of one of my favorite survival & preparedness YouTube Channels.
