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!

This week on Bunker Buddies! We open the MAILBAG and talk WALKER STALKER CON which includes Terry Bolt totally slipping some TWD spoilers. A dude dies from pancakes?! I try out my best Nicolas Cage Impression, a listener writes in about free downloads of library books by getting a LA Public Library e-card here 
http://www.lapl.org/about-lapl/contact-us/e-card/e-card-registration 
Mom brings a catch all prepper book "Back to Basics a complete guide to traditional skills" you can buy it here (we are not sponsored, just sharing) http://www.mypatriotsupply.com/Back_To_Basics_p/zb_b2basics.htm?Click=289615&gclid=Cj0KEQjw8tbHBRC6rLS024qYjtEBEiQA7wIDec7tVIfJJIUba5zVIMT3iVcr6Jb84gqsLrus1n8BhwwaAgqk8P8HAQ
We review a gift to Andie from Travis, a deck of "Urban Survival Cards" which you can get here: http://urbansurvivalplayingcards.com/. I get into how personally I think Waze is possibly going to be Vader in our Robot Apocalypse. Mama Bolt talks optimism and jokes and how they've helped with her fight with cancer (NET Tumors #Awareness). Andie rambles on cause cancer talk makes her uncomfortable, (so go easy on me when I'm long winded, please and thank you). And lastly here is the fake squirrel news article https://worldnewsdailyreport.com/woman-arrested-for-training-squirrels-to-attack-her-ex-boyfriend/. #StaySafeOutThere #HopeAndCheesecake #DontDie Love you all.

This week we've got  a very special guest who is an advanced prepper, syfy nerd, writer, cultural anthropologist, Warcraft gamer, and most importantly, Andie's Mom! Terry Bolt brings her radiation tablets she bought from a very *legit website. We dive into the mail bag, talk Jericho, TWD, and so much EMP chat. Don't try to friend her, she won't accept it! The elderly are being targeted on Facebook by using emotional manipulation! This is one of my favorite episodes so far! Hope you guys have as much fun as we did. Give us a shout via TravisandAndie@gmail.com, on twitter @AndieBolt, search Andie Bolt on Pinterest to follow some cool boards I'm growing. Thanks again to all the donors who were apart of the drive. Means so much to Travis, my Mom and I! If you get a second to rate us on iTunes we'd appreciate it! Until next time "Don't Die!"

Our guest this week is Luke Barats and he will leave you behind if you break your leg and is the only guy I know who genuinely loves MREs. Did you know some come with Skittles?! We both realize as city dwellers we are not prepared for bio-terrorism and Deep Impact comes up again two episodes in a row but I personally think Luke doesn't realize how un-meantally prepared he is for an asteroid and that neither of us are prepared for the majesty that are Elijah Wood's eyes. Enjoy the show! Don't forget to find us on Facebook and tell your friends! It's not "if" but "when"!
