Who am I?

We are True Story Bro Podcast where we discuss the latest happenings in ways you'd talk with your friends, with semi serious discussions and jokes along the way. We've always had these kinds of discussions that were thought provoking with many friends in our lives and this was a way to sort of have those kinds of discussions but on a larger format.

My Show

What is my podcast about and/or how does it relate to the playlist topic you chose?

We're just 2 guys shooting the breeze and talking about current affairs just as you would with your inner circle of friends around a bonfire... semi serious but always in a lighthearted manner, cracking jokes along the way.

What is my podcast playlist about?

Being able to relax to some comedic takes on daily happenings while also getting a bit of news. Podcasts are a compilation of serious and professional reporting mixed with the same type of chats that you'd have with your friends.

The podcasts I picked and why

1. Hard Factor

Why this podcast?

These guys are very much like how we chat about the different things that we hear in the news and then they throw in some wild stories you'd only see on Twitter.
