Welcome to Commander Cookout Podcast, or CCOPodcast as we like to call it!

Here you'll find an all-Canadian, home grown, home brewed, Magic: the Gathering podcast based on unique, spicy and funny Commander/EDH deck building. Thanks for checking us out!

Come join #CCONation! We do all kinds interesting and unique takes on decks, analytics and we have many ways to be fun and entertaining. In the CCONation, all are welcome and equal. For this reason, none of our content is hidden behind paywalls. Also, all of our contests and giveaways are open to all for no monetary investment or pledging. Tune into the show for more details on how to get yourself entered!

On CCOPodcast, you'll hear us talk about builing spicy Commander brews, how to spice up boring lists, BBQ'ing and drinking beer. If that's the kind of Magic the Gathering podcast that sounds appealing to you, look no further that CCOPodcast!

A little about us and the cast

We are Ryan and Brando from the beautiful city of Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, Canada. We know, it's a mouthful. You don't actually have to remember that part. Or be able to pronounce it! Collectively, we have somewhere around 42 years of Magic the Gathering playing experience! Now, we play commander almost exclusively. That is, if you don't count the MtG drinking games we make up along the way. I'm sure you'll hear about those on the cast!

We started CCOPodcast for a few reasons. First and foremost, because we both love Magic the Gathering. It's entrenched itself in our lives. It's become part of who we are and created some of the strongest bonds that people can have in their lives. It would be hard to imagine life without Magic, really, wouldn't it? Second, Brando works in radio and while he isn't currently a radio personality, that's one of his career goals. The podcast acts as an avenue towards that goal. Also, it certainly didn't hurt to have a radio stations recording equipment at our disposal! Third, we were all sitting around a table drinking one night (imagine that! Us, hangin' out, drinking!) and a buddy suggested that we start a podcast. Not being in a sound state of mind and forgetting how busy he was already, Ryan agreed and that's how he got roped in!

Our Community

Astoundingly to us, we now have, what we call, a world wide Audience! As mentioned before, that audience has come to be known and #CCONation. The majority of our listenership resides in the USA and Canada but  the top 10 countries in #CCONation after that are Brazil, The United Kingdon, Australia, Philippines, Germany, Belgium, Italy, The Netherlands, Mexico and France! Holy crap, that's awesome! Shout out to all you guys and every other nation that tunes in every week!

What makes CCOPodcast Unique?

A couple things actually, for one, we're normal dudes. Dudes that you might want to actually hang out with. We talk about beer, food, our wives, hipsters and taking down the Scrap Booking Ladies on Podomatic.com.

We don't really hold back. If we don't like something, we'll tell you. If we don't like someone, we'll give them a big eff-you. Mostly it's in good fun.... But sometimes we're serious!

We do arcs of episodes. A few episodes in a row on a common topic to get as much coverage as we can on the subject matter. Along with each new arc comes a contest/giveaway. You can enter for free too! Usually that involves a re-tweet or a share somewhere. Patrons are entered based on their reward tier as well. Just sayin'. 

Also, with the help of EDHREC.com, we've come up with both the Milk List and the Spice Calculator. The former is a list of every color combination in Magic. For each combination, we look at the most popular cards at each mana cost as per EDHREC. The less cards we play on the list, the more unique the deck. It's good simple fun.

The Spice Calculator is as follows:



That's how we use science to figure out JUST how spicy our lists are.
