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!

Hey Buddies! 

Welcome to the arena. The place where you've come to push the boundaries of the world around you with confidence. If you're at a point in your life that you're feeling the criticism of those sitting on the sidelines more than the support of those in there fighting the battle with you, we're here to support you. 

We're talking all about Brené Brown's new NETFLIX special, A Call to Courage.

If you're in the arena with us reach out. We'd love to hear your story about it.

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.

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? Would they want a pool? Perhaps a room full of puppies? Maybe a walk in freezer? Or maybe just a bathroom with a door on it?! Not only that, what would they fill their rooms with to ensure that if they go insane, they do it in a very controlled way? Listen, enjoy and tell a friend!

Sep 23, 2015

Welcome Buddies! Well, this is it. No way around it, the world is going to end in 24 hours... hypothetically. What do you do with your last precious moments? Do you spend time with family? Hang out in Dodger Stadium? Or just do all the drugs? Sandeep Parikh joins us to discuss  what WE would do in the event that the end would hypothetically be nigh! What would YOU do?! Be sure to let us know on Twitteer (@TravisandAndie)!

Sep 9, 2015
