Peak Moment host Janaia Donaldson speaks with natural resource analyst Sean Brodrick, who provides a perspective on what may be coming for the economy and how to prepare for it, to be aired on WCKN, cable channel 30 in the Potsdam-Canton area, on Monday and Tuesday, Oct. 11 and 12, at 7 p.m.
The author of” The Ultimate Suburban Survivalist Guide,” Brodrick speaks of peak oil and other resource declines as well as a lesson he draws from Hurricane Katrina: Don’t rely on government to save you during disasters. Urging us to prepare for hard times while we’re in good times, he covers smart money moves, food and water storage, basic preparations in case you have to evacuate, and creating bonds with your neighbors to increase home security.

Locally, the programs are underwritten by The Center for Excellence in Communication at Clarkson University and the Seymour Family of Potsdam.
