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!

An essential Boardgaming podcast for gamers

This is one of the podcasts I look forward to listening to the most when a new episode drops. Brandon, Josh, Jordan, and the rest of the crew all bring different perspectives to the games they talk about which gives the viewer a very good idea if they will enjoy a game or not. They also have genuine chemistry and are very funny to listen to. I found myself laughing out loud in my car on more than one occasion. I also enjoy that they don’t only talk about the “hotness” games or the “cult of new”. I found out about some really cool hidden gem games due to this podcast which I appreciate. Highly Recommended!

Best Gaming Podcast Around

I was first introduced to this podcast from a friend. It only took half an episode for me to be hooked. Josh and Brandon have great chemistry, and offer insightful views on the games they play. This is easily my favorite board gaming podcast, and I am truly thankful I took the time to listen. The value I have found in their content is immeasurable. #TeamNoel
