Bunker Buddies

We're all magical wizards! Andie (raised a prepper now TV writer) and Ben (user experience tech design, Hyperloop One, Jaguar Land Rover) use their real life experiences while staying open and vulnerable in hopes that if your life brings you zombies, real or metaphorical, you'll be leveled up for battle and know you're not alone! We are your Bunker Buddies. Let's Grow! Bunker Buddies is a show all about survival that was founded by Travis McElroy and Andie Bolt back in 2014. Now, THERE IS NO TRAVIS HERE! Sadly, we miss him too! After Travis moved back east, Ben Ellis was brought on as the new co-host. Then the world became an actual apocalypse. Last year a twist of fate left Andie & Ben both struggling to survive personal hardships no go bag could fix. They had to dive deep internally and realized all this time the zombies they were obsessed with fighting were on the inside. So if you want external survival, that's the show up till mid 2018. Although the show is still lighthearted and comedic in 2019 we switched our category from comedy to spirituality and left our network. Now, we are using the tools in our internal go bags to fight our way out of an internal game of Dungeons and Dragons with self love. We talk philosophy, consciousness, mental health, Jospeh Campbell, self care, and leveling up against those monsters hiding on our insides. Skills to help you can live your best life and never settle for anything less. Basically everything Sabrina the Teenage Witch is dealing with only this magic is REAL for us!

Hello Buddies! Allow me to paint you a picture: The year was 1999! Panic swept the land as the new year approached and with the terrifying possibility of the Y2K Virus! Planes would fall from the sky! We'd be launched back to the Great Depression! Nuclear weapons would be launched worldwide! We counted down as the big ball dropped and on 0... nothing happened. Well, actually a few relatively minor (though in one case incredibly shocking and horrible thing happened) things occurred, but we did not find ourselves in a new Stone Age. We're joined this week by Todd Anderson and Stephen Skelton of The Film Pigs to discuss the Apocalypse that almost was and what we can learn from it. You should probably hurry up and download before your computer glitches...
