Brain Trust? More like “Brain Trust”!

Brain Trust is a wonderful community and cabal of designers where all ideas from creators of any level and background are treated seriously, and I love spending time on their Discord. Adam and Will are two of the most naturally funny people to listen to, and I’m constantly amazed at the ideas they come up with on the fly on this show. The show is wonderful and an achievement itself, but the community they’ve facilitated and shaped by their attitudes is the real treasure here. GMBT4LYFE.

Two trustworthy brains theory craft their way through the game design jungle. They’ve also brought you the cult-classic, indie-darling, A Guide to Casting Phantoms in the Revolution. Tune in while Adam and Will earn your trust.
