Junior also expresses his nerd inferiority in Robert's presence. Leo doesn't say much. Be sure to check out Robert Berry's website: retroCRUSH.com
Podcasting, as a form of entertainment, has yet to see its potential fully explored. Offering anywhere from news docs to pop culture reviews, podcasts have no specific way of doing things, making them open to anyone and everyone to produce. Our guest on this episode of The Junior & Leo Show is one such person. Devin Maple, a father, husband, comic book geek, and all around funny man, is one third of the podcasting posse known as the "Game of Bros." Each week these guys get together in their undisclosed bunker buried somewhere deep inside the bowels of Sacramento, and create a show that explores the fringes of what's socially acceptable over a few brews and a lot of dick jokes. Devin is the comedic anchor of the show tossing in funny quips, and sometimes even doing full on characters. Listen as we talk with him about how they go about producing their show, as well as how Devin balances his weekly podcast duties with being a family man and state worker. After the show, be sure to check out the Game of Bros podcast, currently available on iTunes, Stitcher Radio, and their website, GameofBros.com!
