It’s that time, everyone! The Monkeys have broken out of their cages at To-Ag Studios and are now running amok all around the Internetz! From the awesomely epic to the mildly offensive, join us this week as we go uncaged and take over your bandwidth with another hour of good times! So, for your own protection, avoid marriage, get yourself back to school, and get yourself exorcised as you prepare for a brand new episode of Monkey in the Cage!
If you’re a gamer and a geek, then undoubtedly you’ve amassed a grand collection of wondrous treasures, from boxes and books to cartridges and discs. While some of these items may be considered mundane or even relics of geek ages long past, we all know that it goes against our very nature to part with such great gifts of enjoyment, even if we’ve never taken the shrink wrap off yet! Join us this week as we delve into our geek closets and discuss games of all types – purchased, played, and otherwise. Clear off the table, charge up those controllers, and for God’s sake read some damn instructions as you prepare 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!
Well, we did it! We actually made it a full year – 52 weeks and 52 episodes – without killing one another, destroying our friendships, and offending and alienating the podcast masses! Join us this week as we not only take a look back at our first year, but discuss where we’re at and where the MITC crew is headed in year number two! Oh yeah, we’re also recapping Robert’s GMing rotation, chock full of Board-gamey and RPG goodness. So, settle in and take a listen as we go shout-out crazy and thank all of our listeners, supporters, and most of all each other for a great first year here at Monkey in the Cage!
When I was younger I was always fascinated by ancient cultures and the amazing things they built. I loved watching those old TV shows that would try to explain how the pyramids were built, or how the Druids of Stonehenge must have had some advanced technology to get those stones in their spots.
