It’s fitting that our little podcast goes live on a Friday the 13th, because, true to form, we keep the awkwardness alive and well in this week’s episode. Thankfully, our guest was (undoubtedly reluctantly) there to join in the… fun? Join your hosts Matt and Robert this week as they welcome fellow podcaster and pop-culture aficionado George from The Realm Cast to the mics to talk about all manner of nothingness, with an unhealthy side of unchecked privilege! Sit back and relax and try not to hate us too much as you listen to a new episode of Useless Drivel – A Podcast Without a Point!
First off, our apologies. No, really. Not the regular “apologies” we give you every week for producing our amazingly good/bad podcast, but for real and for true, sorry. Things were going great (depending which side of the fence you sit on) and then Matt had to go and bring it down. What a dick! Anyways, now that’s out of the way, it’s on with the show! From low-brow theology and anointed body parts to Wondercon and continuity issues, this show has enough to rub everyone the right and wrong way, simultaneously! Please note, we don’t fact check for shit, but that’s kind of the heart and soul of Useless Drivel – A Podcast Without a Point!
No one ever grows up wanting to be the bad guy. It’s always “be nice” and “do good deeds” and “don’t break windows and set ant hills on fire,” but c’mon! Where’s the fun in all of that? More and more often, villains in all genres and media seem to be getting the spotlight, and sometimes even outshining their do-gooder counterparts in the process. Join us this week as we revisit and expand on our original conversation about the bad guys we love to hate. So butch up that resumé, practice your piloting skills, and stock up on eye patches and antibiotics as you settle in for 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!
