Oh, come in buddies! You've stumbled upon one of our "social bunkers"! We've got bunkers all over this great land! In this episode, we discuss which city/area would be the best general locations to head to during the apocalypse! Rural or urban? East coast? West coast? Maybe a fancy resort location?

Then, in part 2, we discuss everyday carry items! What items do Travis and Andie have on them on a day-to day basis? What items should YOU carry? What can you carry and not look like a weirdo? Do you own a tasteful satchel? All this and more!

Feb 11, 2015

Hellow fellow human buddies! Nothing strange going on here! Just a couple of normal humans doing a podcast, same as always! And even if we were impostors, how could you tell? A secret code phrase? Could you tell from our mannerisms? Or maybe you'd just stab us and see how it goes. That's pretty much Andie's solution. Also, learn about a really interesting mental illness. Also, Andie is an indigo child and Travis is a psychopath apparently. It's a pretty weird stream of conciousness episode!
