Just like the title says, today is the 238th birthday of the greatest nation in podcasting, ‘Murica! So while we’re here enjoying our freedoms, eating fast food, shooting guns at everyone and everything, and just straight up being more awesome than the rest of the world (shut your mouth, Australia!), sit back and let your ears be liberated by the democratic filibustering of the internetz given to you for free by Matt and Robert. It’s like foreign aid for your soul and only half as idiotic as the US government, it’s another episode of Useless Drivel – A Podcast Without a Point!
HOLY CRAP! We did it! We made it to 100 episodes without missing a beat! That rates up there with great historical geek events like the birth of Gary Gygax, the 1st issue of Batman, and the sale of the first Nintendo combined! Okay, not really, but all things considered, it’s a pretty damn big accomplishment for us here at To-Ag Studios. Join us this week as we keep on keeping on talking about the geeky stuff we’ve been up to as well as reflecting on what 100 episodes has meant to us. So, make some new friends, watch out for raging teenage hormones, and definitely be careful who you trust (around the gaming table) as you prepare for a milestone episode of Monkey in the Cage!
The podcast Monkeys have been released from their cage by the government for a top-secret covert mission to the last place on Earth they’d want to return – the jungles of the Internet! Join us this week as we go uncaged and behind enemy lines, deep in the hot, sweaty nether regions of geekdom to rescue friendlies held captive by boredom! Charge up your freon, steer clear of the border, and stock up on milkshakes as you get ready for a brand new episode of Monkey in the Cage!
Are you exhausted? Because we sure are! 2012 turned out be a geek’s best friend and it didn’t matter what your nerdgasm of choice was, either! Be it movies, gaming, television, comics, or whatever else, 2012 surely did deliver… and there are absolutely no signs that 2013 is going to do any less. Hell, it’s probably going to do more! Join us this week as we gather around the mics and discuss what “got our geek” the most in the past year. Prioritize your superheroes, stock up on convention passes, and be sure to try out a bit of the meatloaf as you settle in for a brand new episode of Monkey in the Cage!
What’s better than breaking out a board game, rolling up some characters, or snatching up some controllers with your closest friends? Okay, maybe a lot of things, but in terms of gaming and having fun, nothing! However, those of us with established groups can often take that reality for granted, so what’s an isolated gamer to do to help plant the gaming seed and make that community grow? Join us this week as we tackle listener @AllenStucker’s question and offer an insiders-looking-out perspective on how to help a fledgling gaming community grow. Make nice-nice with the locals, gather up your games, and put on your extrovert pants as we talk gaming communities on a whole new episode of Monkey in the Cage!
HEY YOU GUYS!!!! This week it’s a blast to the past and a chance at redemption as we’re joined in the Goondocks by none other than our very own Jared the Intern, fresh off the plane from the middle of nowhere (aka Missouri). Join us as we discuss our geektastic viewing of the classic adventure film, The Goonies. Grab your Baby Ruth, set booby-traps for the Fratellis, and Truffle Shuffle your way to somewhere comfortable as you prepare to hear our thoughts on the search for One-Eyed Willie’s gold on a whole new episode of Monkey in the Cage!
