Yo! I’m Ramses, like the pharaoh and the condom brand. And I am an addict… a video game and TV addict. OK, maybe not an addict more like a connoisseur. I am husband to Karen, dad to baby Greyson, oldest friend to Robert, and cosmic twin to Matt. I’ve known Robert since the 2nd grade and even went to his all Micro Machines birthday party. I’ve been crushing on Karen since the 8th grade and told her then boyfriend that one day she would be mine… so in your face! I’ve known Matt since High School and we soon discovered that we were born in the same hospital (like a year apart) and the similarities go on from there… it’s borderline creepy. I love video games like Final Fantasy, Uncharted, God of War, and Street Fighter. I’ve been a video game kid since the old NES and even had the Turbografx 16. I also loves me some TV like Dexter, Sons of Anarchy, Arrested Development, and ALL of the Real Housewives franchises and as the great Nene Leakes once said, “close your legs to married men, trash box!” Hit me up at Ramses@monkeyinthecage.com or tweet me @PodcastRam. Fin.
Hello out there Internet land. I go by Robert and I like long walks on the beach, stormy nights, and the Oxford comma. I’m the hate filled one who is often told he lacks emotion, but whatever, I like playing games. Raised on an NES, I’ve spend the majority of my life playing games of one sort or another. If you have any questions, comments, or general hate mail send it to Matt. If you want to hear how awesome I am, send me an email at Robert@monkeyinthecage.com. Also, the only appropriate answer to any and all questions is “monkeys”. Twitter: @RobMITC
Hi, there! My name is Karen. Yes, that’s a girl’s name because I am a girl. A girl and a geek, but not always in that order. I am married to Ramses and a new mom to a wonderful little boy. Why I decided to partake in such a time-consuming endeavor such as this podcast at this point in my life is far beyond me =). I’ve known both Matt and Robert since high school where they were initially known to me as the quiet kid wearing a fez and the guy who taught me how to play craps during summer school. I am a writer at heart and I find that GMing is the best way to encourage my passion. I love to read everything from classics to comics. I’ve been known to play a mean game of MarioKart64 and still occasionally pick up a video game controller. I have a tendency to obsess on TV shows like Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Angel, and LOST. I welcome any of our listeners to drop me a line me at Karen@monkeyinthecage.com or tweet me @KarenintheCage.
Hey there podcast fans! I’m Matt, the Monkey in the Cage’s “Old Man,” a tag I’ve embraced since the four of us were in high school, despite being the youngest of the group. I’m a devout D20 system player, but love all game types, particularly when I’m sharing it with my best friends here at the podcast. I was first introduced to AD&D 2E 18 years ago while away at summer camp, and role-playing games have been a passion of mine ever since. In addition to gaming, I’m a long-time student of modern and military history, an accomplished martial artist and a devoted husband and dog owner. I’m a fan of first-person shooters, the works of Mike Mignola (particularly Hellboy) and have a growing interest in the Steampunk genre. All-in-all, I love the gaming experience, and hope to share that love through this podcast with gamers young and old, from beginners to veterans. Feel free to drop me a line anytime at Matt@monkeyinthecage.com or tweet me @FreeRangeGamer.
