Another week, another podcast, but this week it’s totally different! Not only are Matt and Rob joined in-studio by not just one, but two guests, they actually have something to talk about! Now, we know the listening audience seriously can’t get enough of the regular non-coherent ramblings of the hosts (what is wrong with you people), but this week it’s time to change it up. Listen along as the guys are joined by JiB and Gina of Happy Jacks RPG Podcast fame in a discussion on character advancement in RPGs. You’ll definitely learn something, just not from the regular hosts. Rarely accurate, but mostly timely, it’s time for another episode of Useless Drivel!
What has overpriced food, smells funky, and is full of memories? No… it’s not that, it’s OrcCon 2014! Join Robert and Matt this week as they recap their gaming adventures at the first Strategicon event of 2014. Sure, the change in hotels wasn’t for the better and yeah, there is no going “nose deaf” fast enough, but that did not deter your intrepid hosts from getting their game on! Plug in and check out as you are regaled by your hosts and their super awesome 4-hour alternate realities; you might actually not regret that you did. Always awkward, somewhat listenable, and just a tad bit geeky, it’s a new episode of Useless Drivel, the podcast without a point!
Happy Turkey Day, internet! While you spend the day watching TV, eating delicious food, and creating lifelong animosity with your family members, remember to be thankful for one thing – free podcasts! Matt and Robert are back this week talking about all the things that matter to no one in particular, and they are thankful that you could join them. So, loosen up your belt, hop into your fat-pants, and enjoy your seconds and thirds while you enjoy a new episode of Useless Drivel, the podcast without a point!
Every so often, a movie comes along that speaks to each and every one of us in some way or another. Whether or not this is a good thing, well, that all depends on the viewer. In the case of Zero Charisma, there was most definitely a resonance throughout To-Ag Studios, in more ways than one. Join us this week as we review the recently released dark comedy which speaks to a certain part of the gamer inside all of us. So, grab your donuts and tacos, get yourself a sweet hipster tattoo, and give as good as you get at the gaming table as you prepare for a brand new episode of Monkey in the Cage!
Gamers want to feel immersed and invested in the games they play and run. Now, while this responsibility can be shared by Players and GMs alike, it will almost certainly falls on the shoulders of the overburdened GM. Bringing something unique and memorable to the gaming table – be it a prop, ambiance, or even food – will definitely stay in the forefront of the Players minds, unlike useless details such as “Where are we?” or “What are we supposed to be doing?” or “What was the name of the guy that hired us?” Join us this week as we welcome our special guest, MITC listener and fellow podcaster JiB of the Happy Jacks RPG community to talk about techniques to help bring a game to life. Strap on a HazMat suit, clean out your test tubes, and be sure to have a plan as you get ready for an all new episode of Monkey in the Cage!
