Alrighty then, we’re back for another exciting adventure here on the Chaotic Navigator podcast. I am Mark Weisman, the Alaska Outlaw and today I’d like to talk about understanding about adrenaline, and its effects on our thought processes during, and after a disaster response.

Before we get after it today, I’d like to make sure that, for those of you who need peace and harmony or help in making sense of life, be sure to check out the Alaskan Ulfhednar podcast at https://akulfhednar.com. After 30 years of spiritual searching and discovery, he has arrived home. Check out his theories of finding peace and harmony, with a true understanding of co-existence and universal love. Some great stuff for you there. 

Each week we look at a different facet of what being prepared looks like in the real world of every day. It is absolutely awesome to be back with you guys here for another adventure of discovery and obtaining the superpower of common sense. Today I want to put a new lens on the old eyeballs and look at the topics from a different perspective.
