Bunker Buddies with Andie and Travis

Join Andie and Travis every Wednesday as they take on every single Apocalypse scenario they (and you the listener!) can think of! They're not preppers, they're comedians so it'll probably get pretty silly. So, hunker in their bunker and let's survive this thing together!

Helloooooooooooo Buddies! Let me ask you something, have you drank rain water out of a wolf's paw print? Do you own any wolf skin belt?

This episode is all about Super Volcanoes like the one under Yellowstone! You see, this is another one of those apocalypses that could really happen. In fact, in 1815 there was an eruption that caused "The Year Without a Summer" and we'll tell you about it!

Hello Buddies! Look! Up in the sky! It's a bird! It's a plane! It's A GIANT ASTEROID HEADED FOR EARTH!!!!! Well, that one and a gajillion other ones. You see, stuff from space hits Earth all the time. Usually, it's pretty small but sometimes it can be quite large. Like, world ending-ly large. Sure, we can build bunkers and plant repositories, but if a big enough rock hits, we are done for. The good news is, there are scientists far smarter than Andie and Travis coming up with solutions! Learn about the potential solutions for the potential disaster! Some of them are really wacky!

Hello Buddies! This week, Travis and Andie discuss their "dream bunkers"! From basic to extravagant, what would they want to not just survive, but comfortably wait out the apocalypse?

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...
