Below is a listing of what I call DestinySurvival Radio’s Greatest Hits for 2014.
I try to do a new show weekly, but I hope you’ll understand if that doesn’t always happen. From time to time I may repackage an archived show, which would allow you to hear a guest interview you may not have heard for a long time. Or it may be one you haven’t heard before at all.
Of course, I’ll keep you updated on what’s happening with DestinySurvival Radio through the DestinySurvival Dispatch, on Facebook, and here at DestinySurvival.com.
You hear me say it each week, but your support of the companies on this site is what it takes to keep DestinySurvival Radio going. I really do appreciate it when you shop with the affiliates and advertisers featured on this site.
This Year’s Greatest Hits
Below you’ll find a link to the blog post I’ve written about each of the shows I think are the best for the year. That’s because each post has a show link as well as links to other resources, such as guest Web sites, books, etc.
Show posts are listed mostly in reverse chronological order, which doesn’t represent any sort of ranking other than by date. I’ve included parts one and two of a couple of entries because they go hand in hand. Each link is followed by a brief show description.
A new window will open when you click on a post’s link. That way you can close the window when you’re done and be back to this page. Scroll to the bottom of this post for a few concluding thoughts.

Wrapping it Up
Bear with me as I repeat a couple of things I say every year I do a post like this. It’s hard to believe DestinySurvival Radio has finished its fourth year. I still think of doing the show as an adventure.
I like to think all of my shows are worth listening to, so picking out the top handful of shows is always hard. I’ve had to leave several good shows out, such as those centered around some excellent children’s books and novels, and the Doom and Bloom Survival! board game from Dr. Bones and Nurse Amy. As with past years, my apologies to any of the guests I’ve interviewed who might have expected to see their show on this “greatest hits” listing.
It wasn’t easy to narrow down my list to the shows linked above. You can hear any show by going to my DestinySurvival Radio page.
DestinySurvival Radio has allowed me to meet interesting and informative guests, and it’s been my privilege and pleasure to share what they have to offer with you. One of the benefits of doing the show is that I’ve made some friends and useful connections along the way. I look forward to more of the same in the coming year.
Thanks as always for your support of DestinySurvival Radio this past year and for the new year.
Your feedback is always welcome. Feel free to let me know if you have show topic or guest suggestions.
