Cannon Fodder

A behind the scenes look at The Glass Cannon Network and all the happenings in #theNaish.

Cannon Fodder has gone through several iterations over the years as the Network has grown and expanded. It started as a weekly companion show to our flagship podcast, then became monthly, then went to Twitch, then was put on the shelf indefinitely as we started releasing more and more actual play content.

Due to popular demand and the support of our Patreon subscribers, you can now enjoy Cannon Fodder Friday EVERY Friday afternoon live and free for all on Twitch with the podcast version available to our $10 Patreon subscribers.
