So, we survived the Southern California Apocalypse that swept through the area last week, which means we were able to actually record a podcast! Join your hosts Robert and Matt this week as they discuss all manner of movies, politics, idiocy and self-imposed stress! Clean out your ears and make room for the funk as you tune into a brand new episode of Useless Drivel – A Podcast Without a Point!
This week saw the loss of one of the worlds greatest comedians of all time, Robin Williams. As horrible as the circumstances are around his passing, it is a situation that provides all of us in any form of entertainment large and small the opportunity to reflect on ourselves and the people we care about. For all the manic comedy and apparent optimism Robin Williams put out into the world to entertain and inspire, he could never really shake the demons deep inside that haunted him until the end. Look to the ones you love, those you call family and friends, and remember to be there for them and that they are there for you.
While the world is a far darker and sadder place without the wit and humor of Mr. Williams, let us all take a moment to remember a great entertainer and celebrate the life he lived.
Robin, this episode is for you.
What happens when you put two out-of-shape nerds behind some microphones and give them access to the internet? Magic. Magic and deep-seated homoerotic sexual tension, but mostly magic. Join Robert and Matt this week as they talk about movies, books, theater, and delicious cake! From mutants and Mormons to emo elves and LARPing, this week’s episode has got a little bit of everything for a whole lot of no one. Brought to you fact-check free courtesy of inherent laziness, it’s a new episode of Useless Drivel, a podcast without a point!

Well geeks and geekettes, it’s been one hell of a ride. For 108 weeks, the crew here at To-Ag studios have aimed to bring laughs, fun, and not a little bit of misinformation to our little corner of the internet, all for your (and our) enjoyment. As the saying goes, “Life Happens,” and while the MITC crew has done a good job of making the podcast fit into their hectic schedules week after week without missing a beat, it seems that real life has finally caught up with the cast. While we don’t see this as a definitive end, the MITC Podcast will henceforth be on indefinite hiatus. Fear not, however, as there is still one last episode to enjoy, and we will always keep the mics ready for when the stars are right.
We’d like to thank all of our listeners and supporters these past few years for their honesty, feedback, and awesomeness. We love you all, and while we won’t be in the studio every week, we do hope that all of the awesome people we’ve met, recorded with, and made friends with keep in touch.
Much Geek Love,
The Monkey in the Cage Podcast
The summer blockbuster movie season has officially begun! Last week’s release of Iron Man 3 has already seen it reach the second highest opening take behind Avengers, but, as always, not everyone is impressed (such is the way of us geeks)! Join us this week as we discuss the movie, Robert Downey Jr., and all manner of geeky and Iron-y Man-y (yeah, it’s a thing) goodness. Charge up your Unibeam, polish up the Mark XLII Armor, and get ready for some holiday cheer as we talk Iron Man 3 on 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!
