Episode # 20 - Last Word, Overland, Cannon Father w/ Mike Winand

January 26, 2021

Our guest this week is Mike Winand (@UrLongLostPal), a podcaster and old college chum of Alex’s. Check out his podcast “For or Against” where each week old friends discuss new topics to decide if they are for or against those topics. More info at www.fororagainstpod.com, and listen wherever fine podcasts are purveyed!

Our cause is HAAM - which provides access to affordable healthcare for Austin’s low-income, working musicians, with a focus on prevention and wellness. Many Austin  musicians are self-employed and have no access to health insurance or basic healthcare. They often work multiple jobs and struggle to pay for  food, clothing and shelter, with nothing left for healthcare. They have helped over 5,600 musicians access over $98 million dollars in healthcare value since they began in 2005. These include routine dental  work, doctor visits and prescriptions, psychiatric counseling sessions, eye exams, out-patient procedures, specialist referrals, hearing screenings and more.

For more info check out myhaam.org

We've donated to them, and if you send proof of a donation to bundlebuddiespodcast@gmail.com we will shout you out on the pod!

About the podcast.....

Welcome to bundle buddies, we are playing through the ENTIRE itch.io Bundle for Racial Justice and Equality.

What is the itch.io Bundle for Racial Justice and Equality? In June 2020, in response to the massive social movement following George Floyds murder, Indie gaming marketplace / community itch.io but together a game/media bundle with all proceeds going to support organizations that are working directly with those affected by racial injustice. When all was said and done the bundle included 1741 items from 840+ creators. It raised $8,153,803.03 for the NAACP Legal Defense and Educational Fund and Community Bail Fund split 50/50. A truly incredible amount, and a testament to peoples desire to see justice enacted.

If you are one of those people who supported this worthy cause you have likely heard of the hits included in the bundle, but there is a LOT of stuff. Some great, some insane, and some bad. it's tough to know where to start, or if a game if worth it. So we're here! Each week we randomly dip into a few of the 1365 are games from the bundle and sharing our thoughts. In the spirit of this bundle, every episode we highlight a new cause and donate. If you donate we'll give you a shout out on the show.

Tune and and play along or just tune in to listen to two video game enthusiasts play some very wonderful and weird games.....and also some bad ones.

Episode 18 - Lieve Oma, Peak Bleak Blues (and other moods), The Müll Littoral w/ Brian Rodriguez McGovern

January 12, 2021

Back with our pal Brian Rodriguez McGovern! Our first ever repeat guest. He's an LA base writer, comedian, and illustrator. Follow him on twitter @brianmcgo, or check out his website brianrodriguezmcgovern.com.

His cause this week was the SELAH Neighborhood Homeless Coalition. SELAH is a coalition of LA neighborhood organizers who recognize unhoused individuals as fellow members of our community worthy of the same dignity, respect and representation afforded to any housed person. Where other homelessness organizations are focused on the big picture goal of reducing homelessness on the city, county and state level, our work occurs on the neighborhood, encampment and individual level.  This allows us to provide detailed, sustained and relationship-driven support to our unhoused neighbors while providing vital firsthand on-the-ground information to representatives of the city, county and larger non-profit organizations.

Episode 11 - And Yet It Moves, Jiayou MemoVirus, Hive Time, Cycle 28 w/ Andrew Heywood

November 24, 2020

Ep 11! We got Eric's buddy Andrew Heywood! 

This weeks cause is All-Options Hoosier Abortion Fund.  In Andrews words “Indiana is rife with bogus crisis pregnancy centers that advertise abortion counciling, but actually just try to redirect women and run out the clock on abortion laws; the All-Options Pregnancy Resource Center, by contrast, actually provides assistance for all options a pregnant woman might choose.  As they say on their website:

"Our all-options approach is clear: we provide open-hearted listening and no-strings-attached services so that you can make the best decisions for you. We’re here to support you with the results of your pregnancy test, provide diapers for your little ones, help you pay for abortion care, and connect you with reliable resources and referrals so that you can access the services you need – and that’s just for starters!"

You can find more about them on twitter @AbortionFunds or on their website https://abortionfunds.org/fund/hoosier-abortion-fund/
