Story Guys is a fake storytelling game show where the points are fake but the stories are real. Brian and Murdock battle each episode to dig up the best story they know on a variety of topics and celebrate all things good in the art of story craft.
The guys get goofy with stories concerning sneaking things into a movie theater. PLUS - a listener calls in with a rock n roll story of his own. And Brian gives out a FREE DRINK RECIPE!
Murdock and Brian both push towards the paranormal in a set of more vulnerable tales about hopes, dreams and UFOs. Plus - lots of movie talk and Brian gets outsmarted by his children.
Murdock confesses his asthmatic past - and present - and why Drew Barrymore is always on his mind. Brian explains why he gets a little weird every time that one REO Speedwagon song comes on.
Quarantine be darned! Brian boots up the laptop and digitally goes head to head in a story battle with the co-founder and Chief Prank Officer of PersonalizedPranks.com, Todd Krise. (Spoiler: Don't go head-to-head in a story battle about pranks with a guy who has built a business around pranking people.)
The guys talk about the music that served as soundtrack for early romance for each of them; PLUS - Brian's wife has strange visitor and Murdock misses that soft bread in Story of the Week!
Murdock's sickly childhood re-emerges as a topic and Brian reveals that a family member just might be a Patient Zero. PLUS - Story of the Week has Brian railing against the best-selling novel The Silent Patient.
Comedian/actor/filmmaker Michael Malone (Fox/Showtime/Comedy Central) proxies for Murdock in a showdown of personal thrifting histories; Plus - Michael talks about his new comedy special on Amazon Prime - Laugh After Death.
