Matt is an excellent speaker on how to prepare for a disaster. I have had him on my morning shows for the past 5 years, talking about hurricanes, earthquakes, fires, etc. He is an excellent on air interview, and people love to get his books and supplies and learn how to get prepared. Matt is an eye opener and really keeps the audience engaged! Anyone who is seeking knowledge in any of the areas that Matt speaks on will not be disappointed. Just in setting up the interview via phone, I knew that I had found gold!
