Bob starts off talking about what we are going to be doing for episode 50 of The Bunker Project and decides to keep it secret until next episode… Oops we spill the beans 1/2 way through the show.


Big News!

Andrew announces Mateo “Podcast” McGivern… his new baby boy. Wooooo Hooooooo!!! Birthing details later in the show!
Born on May 2nd, 2011
7 lbs 2 ounces
Home, Breech, H20 Birth !!!


1st digression is about how they make the black beer. We talk about that but we are probably all wrong and need to bring back the brewmaster of OK Springs to give us the real deal.

The black beer goes down real smooth… Our black lager (Okanagan Brewmaster’s Black) uses blackened Hops to give it the color… not like some of the other dark beers on the market. We save the day with a potential beer spill.
We also figure out why Bob gets much more drunk at The Bunker Project on the same number of beers… Giant Bunker Pints!!!

Bob gets nailed with a sly comment on his height. @twisted_majik says that Mateo was born taller than Bob!

Some mixing techniques…

We talk about facebook taking on Groupon and Living Social with Facebook Deals.

Our new Maven to be talks about how he uses Groupon for affiliate marketing and how it is much better than having google adsense or another ad based program. You get a real commission of up to 15% of the sale.
We touch on the dark side of Groupon which we covered in a previous Bunker Show.

We start a Round Table introductions segment which becomes the WHOLE SHOW… but what the heck, it was great content!

And Now Meet our star studded guests:
