Mountain Chang From Chronology

This week Mike and I welcome on Mountain Chang from Chronology. Mountain is the creator of the Primal Professional shoe. The Primal Professional fills the gap in professional minimalist footwear. Until Mountain Chang created it there wasn’t anything decent on the market. With a very ugly vibram being the only other zero drop minimal dress shoe.


I did a full review on them a few months ago Here.  After a year of use they are still my favorite pair of shoes. I’ve used them outside of work for everyday shoes and walked around a ren fair all day in them.


We talk about Mountains decision to go paleo. We dig into his training routine . Mountain is using the Wendler 5/3/1 system. A very organized and analytical way to gain strength.


We round out the show by talking about gun. Mountain bought a mossberg 500 shotgun for self protection. He talks about the how he choose that model.

Chronology Primal Professional Review

The Primal Professional

I originally talked about the Primal Professionals way back in December of 2012 when I interviewed the creator Mountain Chang. I think I heard about them on the Robb Wolf podcast. I immediately loved the idea of a minimal dress shoe. My work would flip out if I showed up to work in my Vibram Five Fingers. The retail management world just isnt ready for them. My feet though could not handle the 12 hour days on concrete wearing traditional dress shoes. Someday’s I would come home limping from feet pain. I knew I needed something. Are the Primal Professionals the something I was looking for? Let’s find out.

Since I got these shoes for review, lots of exciting things have happened over at the Primal Professional. They’ve rebranded to Chronology. Their Resole and Restoration program, which gives your shoes a second life, is up and running.
       They’ve joined 1% for the Planet, a network of businesses that pledge 1% of their sales to nonprofits that are protecting, restoring, and improving the planet we all live in (notable 1FTP members include Patagonia and Paleo Treats).
     They’ve added some cool new features, like elastic laces that turn the shoes into functional slip-ons. They just received version 3 of their continuously improving shoes. They’re now taking preorders (save $50) for version 4 on They will be made by a new shoemaker, and include a new Oxblood color.

Episode #27 Apocalyptic Fiction and Their Lessons

World War Z Apocalyptic Fiction
World War Z



Apocalyptic Fiction

Mike gets interviews on Prepper Recon. James gets injured at crossfit. Meeting Mountain From the Primal Professional. The guys talk about Congress moving to end the prohibition of raw milk. What Steps do preppers overlook? The main topic of the day is on Apocalyptic fiction and lessons learned from them. Punk Gadget of the week is the Buck Hoodlum. Nutrition Punk of the day is Gluten free is a lifestyle not a product. The permaculture minute is Fungi. The wild edible of the week is sassafras.


Even though I am a self proclaimed anarchist I give props where there are deserved. This week I get to congratulate the gov on finally trying to remove raw milk Prohibition. It’s a ignorant law that doesn’t need to be there. I understand and accept any risk in the foods I eat.

This week James and Mike discuss some of their favorite apocalyptic movies. Not surprisingly zombies eat up the majority of the list. We talk about what is good about the movies. What’s bad in them. We also cover what lessons if any are to be had in them. Apocalyptic fiction is what lured me down the rabbit hole of survival. I like the way your mind goes to what would you do in those situations. How would you handle the threats. Some movies in the apocalyptic fiction world teach better than others. In the end James and Mike wholeheartedly disagree on the last movie. I hate the movie as an abomination. Mike thinks it’s a great movie. Who’s right?
