Brobdingnagian Bards are back for the 10th season of Sherwood Forest Faire. That means were are once again in the same vicinity of each other. That means craziness will ensue.

Last year, this podcast became patron-only as part of the Nagians Only Club on Patreon. That is now changing! You see, January marked the 20th anniversary of the Brobdingnagian Bards. It seemed a shame to hide all of this great content from Nagians around the world. So we asked them if we could make this podcast public once again. They resoundingly…

Photo by GRHookPhoto.com As we prepare for our reunion show at Sherwood Forest Faire, wandering through the grounds, we record a podcast for the world to hear!

Here’s our improvised podcast while driving to DragonCon 2015! The first question that raises it’s head is “What is the purpose of a podcast?” In the past, we’ve done brainstorming, as well as just chatting about what’s going on with our lives. A behind-the-scenes tour, if you will – or a self-covering band! So how do you create a podcast for a ban…

Every venue has its work. GenCon is “Freebird”. We made the mistake of playing it in the pre-show last year at Friday Night Live and ended up with a standing ovation before our actual show started.
