Bunker Politics

Bunker Politics is a weekly chronicling of liberal fear in this new, exciting, utterly terrifying political era in which we are forced to live. Every episode, hosts Ivan Hernandez and Red Scott discuss the newest events which cause them to fear for the continued existence of the planet, whether it’s massive corruption, irreparable climate change, or your normal everyday trampling of human rights. Join Ivan and Red in the bunker as they strive to stay informed and keep some kind of sense of humor as the world burns around them.
