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 and Happy (Belated) Birthday America! Yes, it was the Fourth of July this week and that means one thing: FIREWORKS! Awesome Internet person Charley Feldman joins us to discuss the bombastic bangers! Fireworks can be beautiful, but they can also be very useful in the apocalypse! Useful or beautiful, they are also very dangerous. Every year, there are wildfire and injuries related to fireworks. We're joined once again by Andie's sister and wildland fire expert Abby Bolt to discuss the risks. Abby also gives us an update on the wild fires that occurred in the Bolt's home town. Take a listen and be sure to share!
Hey Buddies! There's something about this that just feels GOOD! We have no idea what it is, and we're probably imagining it! We're so excited this week to be joined by the hilarious and wonderful Paul Sabourin (of Paul & Storm) to discuss SHARK ATTACKS! They are not nearly as wide spread as pop culture would have us believe. In fact, if you follow some handy tips you can significantly decrease the risk! That said, attacks do happen and you'll need to know how to survive! Enjoy and don't forget to share!
Oh boy Buddies, it's soon hot out there! How hot is it?! ...really hot? We're not very good at those kinds of jokes. We're joined by actor and awesome person Jimmy Wong to talk about surviving EXTREME HEAT! Listen as Andie recounts a harrowing tale of sun poisoning! We also give some quick sun screen tips! Find out who is most susceptible to heat, what to do to avoid heat illness and what to do if you find yourself suffering! Also, why don't all theme parks have designated nap areas? Even more heat safety tips and Travis admits his love of electrolytes! Enjoy and don't forget to share!
Hello Buddies! We're coming to you recorded live at Andie's Kitchen Counter Studios with special guest Anne Brashier to talk about the ever impending threat of nature! Nature is all around us and constantly reminds us that it could kill us any time it want. We're specifically focusing on the animals of nature this episode. When the animals turn against us, who will save us? Listen as Travis says the most prepper thing he has ever said on the show! Which animals are we most afraid will attack? Why does no one realize how scary butterflies are? We've made ourselves big, what's step 2? Listen, enjoy and don't forget to tell a friend!
Oh hey there Buddies! We were just about to go for a jog, would you care to join? You really should think about some kind of fitness routine before the Apocalypse rolls around! Maybe you'll do Crossfit and sword fighting like Andie! Or maybe you'll run, wrestle and knife fight like Travis! Or maybe, you'll do ice skating, cycling, hiking, and a thousand other things like our amazing guest Ali Spagnola! Listen to this episode and maybe we can help you pick something! You'll also learn why NPR hosts shouldn't do sports commentary! You might even help Travis and Andie settle a debate about impressions! Listen, enjoy and don't forget to tell a friend!
Hey there buddies! This week we're talking Post-Apocalypse/Survival Fashion! We're joined by fashion/costume designer Katie Elhoffer. First, we talk about our nails! Then we discuss the form versus function of survival fashion and some of our post-apoc fashion pet peeves. Like, why isn't everyone in a Zombie movie protecting their arms?! We also go off on a couple tangents about welding! Travis talks about what fashion item he thinks the apocalypse would rejuvenate. Also, we talk about our biggest post-apocalypse worry: CHAFING! We also answer a whole mess of your questions! Enjoy!
Hello Buddies! By the time you finish listening to this episode it'll be 50 minutes in the future! But what if it was 20 years? Or 30 years? Or 1000 years?! How will gender and race have changed? What technology would exist and how would we adapt to it? Would you be considered a super hipster? Whose head would you hope was preserved in a jar? What would you be horrified to discovered has happened while you slept? Would you hope for a robot buddy? Whether it's via coma or cryonics, what do you do if you wake up in the future? Were so excited to be joined by the amazing Ashly Burch (RocketJump, Hey Ash Whatcha Playin?) to figure it out!

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!
