Our motto embodies what we believe is most important about our show. We want to promote getting up off your lazy ass, leaving the house and joining your friends and family for social activities. Too often we get older and fall into a rut... a rut of getting home from work, eating dinner and collapsing on the couch or into your computer chair to play video or watch TV until bed time. It's time to get your face out of your cellphone and away from the glowing box of sedentary living and play games that work your brain with the people you love. We strive to keep ourselves, our family and our friends from being lazy, cowardly manure.

The Secret Cabal is a York, Pennsylvania based gaming club founded by the hosts of The Secret Cabal Gaming Podcast. The club was originally founded in 2001, but did not become known as “The Secret Cabal” until 2010 when Tony and Jamie were day dreaming of being members of an outlaw motorcycle club. Since neither of us had motorcycles, the next logical choice was to make our gaming club official.

The Secret Cabal was born.


From inception, The Secret Cabal Gaming Podcast was meant to capture the essence of the time’s Brian and Jamie spent sitting at the diner, drinking coffee and discussing gaming ad nauseum. We always wanted the show to be friends discussing what they love and hopefully providing both entertainment and useful content in equal measure. We all have differing opinions and varying tastes and we feel that this sets us apart.

We love gaming, the gaming community and the industry and The Secret Cabal Gaming Podcast is our contribution to it. We will produce the show to the best of our ability, never settling for a substandard product or an unpredictable release schedule. This is an obligation to our loyal listeners. We hope that any listener who gives our show a try will find it entertaining and informative.

And you can always bet that we will live up to our motto.
