106: The Quasi-Nerd | Captain Influence

That's quasi-nerd, not queasy-nerd... though we understand why you might make that mistake! Welcome back Captain Influence, aka Tony, to this mad March installment of The Real Brian Show! Our classic lineup of conversations includes music, movies, gaming, and, of course, a strong shot of espresso. In This Episode Quasi-Nerd The prefix quasi just means something that is almost, but not quite the thing that's being defined. Someone who is a quasi-nerd probably meets a lot of the parameters,...


105: Never Give Up! Never Surrender! | Captain Influence

For the second week in a row we're glad to welcome back Tony, aka Captain Influence! In our typical Superhero Friday fashion, we've got the fun and we've got the serious, but this week we want to circle back to reminding each other of how important it is for the two to overlap from time to time. We're a people of extremes, aren't we? We tend toward extremes and finding a balance can be our primary focus in life. But it's exhausting, isn't it? Sometimes we just have to take the fun when there...

Welcome back to The Real Brian Show! We're pleased to welcome back Tony, aka Captain Influence, to kick off the month of March.

To balance out the fun, we'll talk some movies,...

Happy Superhero Friday! We're so glad you're joining us for this Miss-Ice-Takeover installment of the podcast.

96: 2018 Intentions | Star Wars: The Last Jedi Review | Christmas Classics | Healthy Eating | Casting Crowns

Happy New Year! Welcome to 2018 and the year of intentions! It's not that resolutions are bad, but new year's resolutions can often carry a relatively negative connotation. It's something you resolve to do at the beginning of the year which ends up getting discarded a couple months later. In this episode of The Real Brian Show, Martin (the Flash) and Brian talk about their intentions for 2018. They also talk about Star Wars: The Last Jedi, Christmas music classics, and all the good nerdy...

94: “Me Too” | Sexual Assault and Harassment | Star Wars: The Last Jedi | Overwatch | Andy Weir - Artemis | Dark Matter

93: Sympathy vs Empathy | Stranger Things 2 | Awaken Online: Catharsis | Megadeth Christmas | Lacuna Coil

92: I Wish I Could Just Quit You | Justice League | Supergirl | Maid of Steel | Commitment | Intentionality

Under commitment, over commitment. We see it all in modern society.

In This Episode can Just Quit Remember the adage, nobody likes a quitter?...

Oh, let us count...
