132: Poop in the Ice Cream | Captain Influence

Happy October! And welcome back to The Real Brian Show where after over a month, Captain Influence is finally gracing us with his presence... and a full cup of gag-worthy Folgers.

130: We Should Be Picky and Choosy | Miss Ice

After being frozen in carbonite for an unspecified amount of time in an undisclosed place, Miss Ice emerged!

118: What Happens in Vegas... | Captain Influence

Welcome back to The Real Brian Show! Before getting started, I'll just take a quick moment to apologize for not communicating about no episode last week.

115: You're Too Old For Gaming | Lord Thunder

Are you sick of being told by "experts" or by "scientists" that you're too old to do something? We definitely are! If there's one thing we emphasize on this show, it's that you're only as old as you feel. Unless you feel like an infant, in which case we don't support that. In a world that like to complain that we're getting old too quickly, it seems that sometimes we confuse immature individuals taking part in an activity with the activity itself being immature. So with the help of CJ "Lord...
