off the grid

  Off the Grid, the sixteenth Joe Pickett novel by New York Times-bestselling author, C.J. Box, is told with pulse-pounding urgency and insight, a timely look at how terror is found—and fought—in the wild expanses of Wyoming, one of the most untouched parts of the United States. It is a thriller that also poses big questions and provokes controversial answers.

Off the Grid continues the success that C.J. Box launched in 2001 with Open Season, the very first Joe Pickett novel. Over that time, he’s taken on environmental terrorists, rogue federal land managers, animal mutilators, crazed cowboy hitmen, corrupt bureaucrats, homicidal animal rights advocates, and violent dysfunctional families.

  Former politician, actor, author, naval veteran, and former professional wrestler who served as the 38th Governor of Minnesota from 1999 to 2003 - Jesse Ventura - joins us to talk about his new online shows and weighs in on a plethora of issues concerning our nation and world.

When Joshua Safran was four years old, his mother--determined to protect him from the threats of nuclear war and Ronald Reagan--took to the open road with her young son, leaving the San Francisco countercultural scene behind. Together they embarked on a journey to find a utopia they could call home.

In Free Spirit: Growing Up On The Road And Off The Grid, Safran tells the harrowing, yet wryly funny story of his childhood chasing this perfect life off the grid--and how they survived the imperfect one they found instead.
