ERMAHGERD!!!! NEW STAR WARS TRAILER!!! Yes, by now it’s old news, but still, it was pretty cool to see the first REAL teaser for the Force Awakens this week. But, fanboying aside, Robert and Matt are back behind the mics to bring you, our listener(s), a brand-spanking new podcast. This week has everything, from riches and The Force, to sweet, sweet cyber-macking and betrayal. It’s never tasteful, hardly factual, it’s Useless Drivel – A Podcast Without a Point.

Stay evil out there in podcast listener land, and be sure to share the true nightmare fuel for your ears, 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.
Would you believe that Robert and Matt actually convinced someone to record a podcast with them? Neither could they! When it comes to over the top awesome, it’s hard to beat the Fate Core system, but you add a healthy dose of Atomic Robo to the mix, and you’ve got yourself some serious kickassery! The guys are joined this week by Mike Olson, lead designer of the Atomic Robo RPG, and man, is this guy living the dream! Tune the world out and flip on your geek-dar, because it’s about to get all sorts of awesome in your ears. From Action Scientists and Dinosaurs to Brainstorms and Vampire Lucahdores, prepare to be amazed by a brand new episode of Useless Drivel – A Podcast Without a Point!
