Deep dive into stories of survival against the odds.  

From Man vs Wild to Scott of the Antarctic!  From survival in the jungle to survival in the urban jungle follow along and see if you’ve got what it takes.  What choices would you have made in those same situations?  Should we all become Doomsday Preppers? Use your critical thinking skills to dismantle (or create your own) conspiracy theories.
