It’s April Fool’s Day, and you know what the cruelest joke of all is? The fact that this is a legit episode and not some cheap parody or joke of a quality production! Robert and Matt are joined by their best-good friend, The David, for another fun filled hour of random information, geek-type news, Superman V. Batman, and Wondercon. Oh, and don’t forget the hookers and gay sex. This episode has it all, so strap yourself in and put a jimmy-hat on your ears, because you’re going to need it. It’s a brand new episode of Useless Drivel – A Podcast Without a Point!
NPCs; they are the lifeblood of any adventure, campaign, or gaming world. Sure, the story is created by the actions of the Player Characters, but without NPCs, who would the heroes turn to for help, sell all their (sometimes ill-gotten) treasures off too, or shiv prison-style in a back-alley for some easy XP? Join us this week as we jump back almost two decades to discuss some of the memorable NPCs – allies, adversaries, and otherwise – from our epic AD&D 2nd Edition campaign! Ready your fantasy cellphones, lock down that split-personality disorder, and for the sake of your family take out a life insurance policy as you prepare for an all new episode of Monkey in the Cage!
Everyone likes a good TV show, right? But, as we here at Monkey in the Cage know, “good” is a very relative (and somewhat dangerous) word to use when measuring the quality of the television we watch. Join us this week as we are joined by super-listener and über-contributor Kevin Smith to talk about all those shows we hate to love! Warm up your vocal chords,really suspend your disbelief, and bring yourself tons of cash as you settle in for another ear-melting episode of Monkey in the Cage!
Well, July is just around the corner. You know what that means!?! San Diego Comic-Con! Wait, what did you just say? You didn’t get tickets? Well, neither did we. Luckily, we were able to take advantage of WonderCon’s temporary relocation to Anaheim, California this year and we’re here to bring you a little taste of our WonderCon 2012 experience. Join us this week as we discuss some of our favorite experiences on the convention floor this past weekend, as well as our take on how WonderCon stacks up to the nerd-fest that is San Diego. Grab your three day passes, hit the ATM, and don’t forget your poster tube (seriously, don’t) as we bring you WonderCon 2012!
