WoweeZowee folks. Have we got a show for you. Newly minted Denver Post columnist, Benjamin Hochman (@hochman) makes a return visit to the bunker (sans Kreckman) and gives us a show for the ages. We talk all about Hochman’s transition from Nuggets beat writer to full fledged columnist, his love of Denver, his fellow Post writers, and some impromptu Nuggets talk.

We talk a little soccer, Colin goes on and on about his love of Nebraska and we delve into concussions, citing Hochman’s recent column on the subject. We have an awesome 90’s TV quiz and go Broncos for the overtime. Check out Sir Hochman in the Denver Post, as he’s doing some good work over there.

    A beauty of a Skype show as the new Bunker nears completion. Not only does John sit and jaw with Colin for an indiscriminate amount of time, we bring in Ryan Boulding (@rboulding) to give us the scoop on the looming Ryan O'Reilly situation. It's pretty grim. Colin and John talk a shit load of Rockies, Monfort and we veer into some Broncos before sliding back into some more Rockies. This show was a challenge because Skype wasn't cooperating this evening but hopefully you can't tell. Colin's "Questions Read" was especially offensive. Enjoy.

    We talk World Cup. Colin isn't as obnoxious as some people and we agree the USA is awesome. Then it's on to the Nuggets draft and we break down all that we know about the new eastern European so and so. We pine for the new studio and getting some guests to look in the eye. Some Bill Simmons is discussed and then we dive headlong into the Rockies and then we introduce the concept of Let My Tulo Go, go, go. Colin says forgot your pathetic lives and let Amy Van Dyken inspire you. Then we answer questions. Only a few more of these and we'll be back in the new bunker. Thanks for sticking with us.

    Another Skype show as the new Concrete Bunker is prepared for the love that dare not speaketh its name. John is joined by Mile High Sports' Zach Fogg (@zachfoggsports) and we go balls deep into some Rockies talk including a breakdown of "Big Ginge" Eddie Butler's debut at Coors Field. We also talk about why Zach doesn't like the NBA, some Broncos, some metal and how now that Zach has figured out his webcam, he can make some extra money. Good stuff to tide you over until the Bunker is complete. Check out Zach at and his weekly column at Word up.

    It's a Skype show where John's mic sounds like shit but the show is solid GOLD. We talk Rockies, Clippers, the NFL nerds and their countdowns, and then we answer some mailbag questions. There's a few beers that were drank so it's as loose as you'd think it was. And then we adress the Captain Bronco "Dear John" letters and it gets really sticky very quickly. Good stuff. Welcome back. Pee drinking and orange and blue ball painting.

    It's been awhile. We know. But we get back into the swing of things with a show from Atomic Cowboy on South Broadway. Special guests Andrew Mason (@masedenver) and Renaud Notaro (@renknowitall) join the crew and we talk to Mase about his experiences covering the NFL draft and how it's like a Star Trek convention. Renaud chimes in about the Rockies and Michael Sam and some foreskin talk. Colin decides he must talk about Donald Sterling and drags Renaud's lawyer buddy Rodger on to the show to discuss the legal ramifications of being an asshole. All in all a good show even though we had a hard time hearing each other. Maybe it's for the best.

    We take a bit to get warmed up but when we do, it’s a hell of show. Local hockey media legend, Ryan Boulding (@rboulding) takes time out of his busy, busy schedule to pay us a visit and lay down a great show featuring tons of Avs talk, Broncos lamentation, and some Rockies talk that involves mostly George Frazier. We do a great hockey quiz, a Tweep of the Week, and we go very deep into the media and fan bandwagon overload going on in Denver right now. Then we talk about assholes who spoil TV shows for other people. We revisit Colin’s supreme home run call and then some Moser love. A great return to form right before the playoffs.

    A "solo" show where John Skypes Colin in from Salt River Fields and Mile High Sports Ryan Boulding Skypes in about the Avs. There's some music, some mirth and overall good vibes probably because we avoid talking about the Broncos and Nuggets. ENJOY.

    A new nomadic show from Boone’s Tavern with Jennifer Eakins (@theMondayMommy) and we cover it all. Broncos free agency, testicles dropping as a sign of Spring and “kind” beer vendors at Pepsi Center. We cover the Mile High Sports debacle and the shift in morning show programming. The Kreckman/Clough monster-super host is discussed and then Colin’s horrible fantasy hockey team is diagnosed. John talks about his deep shame regarding the Broncos. A real bad Tweep of the week. There’s a few bumps in the road including a trivia guy talking the whole time we were recording but a nice return to the post-bunker world of the South Stands Denver Fancast.

    The last show in the Concrete Bunker and we take it out in style with Zach “The Honeybear” Fogg (@zachfoggsports) and we dodge the obvious and don’t discuss the Broncos, but instead dive deep into the Rockies. Dick Monfort’s stab at social media with his #asktheowner Twitter shit-show is discussed in depth and Honeybear breaks down what the Rockies have done right, and wonders why Monfort didn’t discuss it. We talk a little Avs, the Olympics, the Holy #PartyDeck and a Shirley Temple/Melvins tribute kicks off the fourth. Then we talk the gay kid who will be playing some NFL football in a city near you. Then we quickly vent on the horrendous Broncos Super Bowl loss (which doesn’t even deserve the time) before some Juggalo poetry takes us out. Farewell to the Bunker, we will miss it. Long live the Bunker.

    Well gang we did it. We hooked up Skype and had two of our faves @yeswhatisaygoes and @captainbronco join us for a Super Bowl preview show. We first talk all kinds of Broncos, our impressions of what we think will happen on Sunday and then we bring the onslaught of some of the best guest we've ever had through the magic of the INTRANET. Christina talks about how she became a Broncos fans and Captain Bronco drinks beer the whole time he's on. Truly epic. Enjoy this show as the Broncos prepare for one final ride of the season in Super Bowl XLVIII.
