Alan – We record these shows on Youtube live chats.  If you want an early peek at the podcast, please subscribe to the YouTube channel “The Island Retreat “, and click the notifications tab.  That gives you alerts when we are going live. You can also reach me on Instagram – PPSWO.


Ian – You can reach Ian directly, by emailing me at theislandretreat@gmail.com . You can also find me giving my .02 worth on Canadian Patriot Podcast, also available on Itunes and Youtube.  There you will find us discussing the merits of a freer society, exposing more government waste, and squirreling off to the odd tactically-driven conversation.
