Whether Valentine’s Day is your thing, or you enjoy celebrating love every day of the year, we are happy to welcome you back to the Real Brian Show and an installment that will hopefully satisfy the broad spectrum of our listener base! We’re not much for Hallmark Holidays here at The Real Brian Show, but we do love the fun history of the internationally-observed day of love. Mangodroplet joins the Real Brian and they chat about all sorts of wonderful, nerdy things…
Welcome back to the Real Brian Show! With episode 100 in the bag, we return this week with a fresh dose of realness from crowd favorite, Mangodroplet (aka Anna). There’s a lot on the docket for this episode! Brian has some quality Chinese coffee; Owl City and Plumb top our Now Playing list; and the Greatest Showman comes highly recommended.
We’ve arrived at the 100th episode! It’s a milestone for any podcast and few make it all the way. We’re so thankful to everyone who has made this show possible and to the amazing participation of our community. In this installment of the podcast, Brian goes solo in order to reminisce on the last 100 episodes and play some sound bites from the community. If you didn’t get a chance to pipe in, leave a comment on the blog post!
Welcome back to The Real Brian Show! We’re excited to have Anna, aka Dr. Mangodroplet, join us again for another riveting discussion. With Brian’s coffee roaster in full swing now he is adequately caffeinated and enjoying Papau New Guinea beans from the Sigri Estate. These two have a lot on their watchlist, including the Shannara Chronicles Season 2, Hulu’s Marvel’s Runaways, and Star Wars Rebels. We’re going to talk about pizza places in Fort Collins and an Australian company that is making video game hologram rooms!
Welcome back to The Real Brian Show! It’s our privilege to welcome back Mangodroplet for another amazing Superhero Friday installment. We’ve got a taste of everything for you this week… Brian’s new coffee roaster (and tips on getting started yourself), the opioids craze, the new film Jumanji, and, of course, five things you can actively do to make your 2018 great!

Happy Superhero Friday! We’re so glad you’re joining us for this Miss-Ice-Takeover installment of the podcast. Over the last couple months we’ve talked a lot about different aspects of community and about being involved in the process that brings people in and makes them feel like they’re part of something. This week is no different, except that instead of talking about community in the abstract, Brian and I get really real. Ready?
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 stuff you’ve come to love from this show.

Welcome back, for the last installment of the podcast for the adventure that has been 2017! We’re excited to cap off the year with Scarlet Synapse and all the joy she brings to our ears. Even though we listen to music all year long, we eat cookies all year long, and lights are displayed in one way or another all year long, there’s just something about this time of year that makes it all fitting. Which is why we’re taking some time in this podcast to talk about them all (because there are a lot). Check out the LINKS section of the blog post to get redirected to the music we talk about in this episode.
“Me Too” | Sexual Assault and Harassment | Star Wars: The Last Jedi | Overwatch | Andy Weir – Artemis | Dark Matter
It’s Friday! And we’re one week closer to Christmas. It’s all too easy this time of year to get sucked into the vortex of presents and shopping, so we encourage you to listen to this podcast while you’re doing something non commercial-holiday related. Maybe it’s time to vacuum the spare bedroom… or clean out that closet you said you would clean out last year. With Brian and Anna (aka Mangodroplet) at the helm, we’re going to be talking about a pretty heavy, and very relevant, topic. Sexual harassment, and the “Me Too” phenom, is a vital conversation to have and I think you’ll find that our hosts do it justice.
Sympathy vs Empathy | Stranger Things 2 | Awaken Online: Catharsis | Megadeth Christmas | Lacuna Coil
As we draw deeper into the season of giving, of love and good cheer, and, most importantly, of hope, our conversations lead to the heart of matters that affect our relationships and, as a result, affect our community. Here at The Real Brian Show we are advocates for having the difficult conversations, for breaking complex human actions down into smaller pieces in an attempt to understand them, and encouraging one another to be the best version of ourselves. So join us in welcoming Mad Scientist back to the show! We get serious with a talk about the value of sympathy vs empathy, have some fun talking about Stranger Things 2.
