Looks like we started the new year in true MITC style by failing to even get through the first month with consistent episodes. Sure, maybe Robert was practically dying, but he could have fought through the sickness and manned up to record! Alas, We are returnededed this week, mostly healthy and super-amped to bring you a brand new episode! Join your hosts Matt and Robert this week as they delve into the world of fever-dreams, Stormtroopers, and bullshit phrasology (totally a word). Pack your ears with cotton, because they might actually bleed this time as you listen to a brand new episode of Useless Drivel – A Podcast Without a Point!
First off, our apologies. No, really. Not the regular “apologies” we give you every week for producing our amazingly good/bad podcast, but for real and for true, sorry. Things were going great (depending which side of the fence you sit on) and then Matt had to go and bring it down. What a dick! Anyways, now that’s out of the way, it’s on with the show! From low-brow theology and anointed body parts to Wondercon and continuity issues, this show has enough to rub everyone the right and wrong way, simultaneously! Please note, we don’t fact check for shit, but that’s kind of the heart and soul of Useless Drivel – A Podcast Without a Point!
Well, Christmas is just around the corner! It’s time to wrack up that credit card debt, pack on the holiday pounds and try to squeeze some gaming time in between those pesky long hours at work, holiday get-togethers with extended family, and dodging pepper-spraying psycho shoppers at the malls. This week, the podcast Monkeys discuss geek culture and consumerism and reflect on the simultaneous joy and regret our over-spending on the hobbies we love has left us with some significant debt over the years. Pop on your fuzzy rabbit slippers, grab some hot cocoa, and be happy your finances aren’t our finances in this week’s pre-Christmas special!
