About

Based out of lovely Wisconsin, USA, Gaming and BS is a podcast that talks about roleplaying games.

Brett and Sean are two guys working for The Man Monday through Friday. While people in corporate meetings are thinking of deliverables and timelines, we’re thinking about how a half-orc barbarian may influence the decision-making process. On second thought, we better make that a 4th level, human, Bard.

Often times we find ourselves at lunch talking about role-playing games. The conversation leads to rules, campaigns, plot ideas, character concepts, npc baddies, min maxing players, and much more. Why not share our banter with you?

Listening to Gaming and BS you’ll realize that we don’t take ourselves too seriously. We’re not dummies, but we didn’t want to make this show academic in nature.

The format of Gaming and BS, the rpg podcast, is made up of 4 segments.
