Based in South-central Alaska, the Outlaws are scattered all around the world. Most still serve in active roles in the emergency management field. We are always on the hunt for new "want-to-be" outlaws who are interested in providing some information to help their communities become more resilient against the wrath of mother nature. If you're brave enough, and want to help, by all means use the link below to apply to join us.

Outlaws used to be those individuals who were "outside" the law or didn't recognize the authority, however, throughout the last century that definition has morphed into something very different. Today, particularly in our case, realistically, the outlaws are those willing to go into the heat of conflict in hopes of creating peace and safety for others. That's really what drove the founders of this show, originally "The Alaska Outlaw podcast", to create this platform ultimately becoming the "Chaotic Navigator" where we educate the general population in methods and tips to remain safe and secure in these modern-day times of uncertainty.
Getting ready to go into its third season, Chaotic Navigator offers insight beyond the "SURVIVAL" marketing and advertising campaigns to real everyday, real-world, tips, and tricks to help us make informed decisions about keeping ourselves and our families safe. Our panel of experts "circle the wagons" and look at each episode to determine what, if any of their expertise would help make each show better for our audience.
