Brawling Brothers Boardgaming Podcast

World Talk

The Brawling Brothers Boardgaming Podcast is a biweekly podcast that focuses on board games, card games and RPGs. The original Brawlers (Josh and Brandon) are 2 friends who like very different types of games. The show focuses on these differing preferences and (hopeless) attempts to sway each other's opinion. Each show includes light, friendly banter, a game review (in print), a combative segment called "Brawling and Boardgaming", and the fan favorite TNT (Then, Now Tomorrow)... While the "Brawling and Boardgaming" can get a bit heated at times, Josh and Brandon play boadrgames for the same reason: SOCIAL INTERACTION. The Brawlers love of meeting new people, playing games with old friends and interact with gamers all around the world is the simple reason that Brawling Brothers was founded. Join us, relax and have some fun!
