The Language of Bromance started because a friendship was slowly disappearing. Richard and Shawn had been friends for close to 10 years but their changing lives caused phone calls to become less and less. So in 2014 Shawn took the idea of the two friends creating a podcast and made it happen.
The first episode was released on June 21st, 2014. Since then, the guys have released an episode every Sunday for 200 straight weeks. Each week the content they produce grows stronger. This has created the mantra of Sunday is Reserved for Bromance.
Some annual episodes from Language of Bromance are “Hall LOB” which discusses San Diego Comic Con, “Brolloween” which comes out the week of Halloween, “Bro Huddle” at the end of the year to prep for the upcoming year of entertainment with John from Podbros, and all episodes that end in 3 or 8 the “Bros become Foes” and have a draft episode.
The guys thought a bit of competition would be fun, so they created the Draft episode. Draft episodes are NFL-style drafts of 7 rounds where the guys flip flop picks on a specific topic. Past topics include: Villain draft, Zombie Apocalypse Draft, Scary Moment Draft, and most recently, the Thankful for Stuff draft.
Being featured as a SmodCo PodU podcast in February was one of the Language of Bromance’s achievements for 2016. As well as being interviewed on BBC Radio as part of a Bromance segment.
The Language of Bromance is the best example of an Audial Voyeurism podcast, giving listeners the opportunity to tune into a conversation that two friends would have with or without mics.
To celebrate Richard and Shawn’s 200th Epsiode featured Rima Jo from Strange Indeed and Jason from The Walking Dead Cast. The four took questions from the LOBarmy ranging from random to personal. Give a listen to Episode 200 on Apple Podcast, Stitcher, Spotify, or anywhere you listen to Podcast.
