From the clothes we wear to the games we play, we are all individuals. Unique, delicate little flowers chock-full of free will, self-determination, and our own thoughts, dreams, and ideas. Well, ideally we could be bastions of individuality, free from influence, but then there’s that damn pop culture thing around every corner you turn! BAM, it’s on your TV! BANG, it’s in your closet! BOOM, it’s EVERYWHERE!!! Join us this week as the Monkeys are joined by their special guest (and Matt’s wife), Nikki Fuller, and put on their thinking caps to discuss why exactly pop culture is something to be paid attention to! So, turn on the dog channel, prepare for some disappointment, and curse the Hollywood casting calls as you prepare for a brand new episode of Monkey in the Cage!
A while back, when we recorded Episode 44, we discussed the things we were addicted too at the time, and they were all totally awesome. However, it got us thinking about some of the not-so-great geek addictions of days gone by, and we realized that we better get these skeletons out of the closet… you know, before they reanimate and attempt to kill us. Join us this week as we discuss some of our past obsessions that have either blown out bank accounts, crushed our social lives, or just flat out sucked. So lock up your bank accounts, put away the credit cards, and for the love of the gods, be with the friends you’re with, as you listen to a brand new episode of Monkey in the Cage!
With the meteoric success of The Walking Dead and the subsequent weekly zombie vacuum left on Sunday nights, we here at the podcast (and most everyone else out there in pop-culture land) can’t seem to get enough of the rotting, cannibalistic dead come to f*ck up the humdrum routine of society. Joining us this week are two very special guests – actor/writer and voice of Red Dead Redemption’s Bill Williamson, Steve J. Palmer as well as comic artist Guy LeMay, creator of Z-Blade XX, Zombie Headhunter, and The Entity Knights – as we discuss zombie movies, games, and the genre in general. Stock up on supplies, shine up your bullets, and pay attention because you’re going to want to change your zombie apocalypse plan after listening to this week’s episode of Monkey in the Cage!
