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!

Hello Buddies! As you may or may not know, there is a devastating and terrifying wildfire in Fort McMurray, Alberta. These types of fires can seem unstoppable. So, we had wildland fire expert/fighter Abby Bolt on the show to discuss what battling something like this entails. She also shares tips on how you can help prevent fires like this. Plus, a few tips on what to do if you find yourself in the middle of a forest fire.  If you would like to donate to support the town of Fort McMurray, you can go to donate.redcross.ca or text FIRES to 45678. If you would like to help support the brave folks who fight this kind of devastation, head to www.wffoundation.org.

Hello Buddies! Unless you live in a protective bubble or have been supremely lucky, at some point the blood that was supposed to be inside your body has made its way outside your body! Normally, you'd just slap a bandage on there! But what if it's a real "gusher"? Lose enough blood and you're going to pass out or even die! We'll go over some exsanguination facts and what to do in an emergency! We'll even talk about the terrifying option of cauterization! WHAT FUN! As a warning, if the discussion of blood/bleeding upsets you then this is not the episode for you!
