The After Lodge Podcast

The best stuff happens After Lodge

About the show

The After Lodge podcast is the after lodge banter of some men who happen to be Freemasons. It is not endorsed nor recognized by any Grand or subordinate lodge of Freemasons. Drawing topics from the /r/freemasonry subreddit, as well as the other Masonic networks, the After Lodge podcast discusses current-day topics within and without the fraternity.
