Episode 60 – How the Internet has Changed Geekdom

The world is getting smaller.  We hear it so much nowadays that the statement has become totally cliché, but it’s the truth.  While the immediately world is getting smaller because we are all inevitably getting fatter, it’s really the internet’s fault… and we couldn’t be happier!  For those geeks out there who remember the pre-modern internet world, it wasn’t always so easy to get your geek on!  Join us this week as we discuss the impact that this new-fangled internet fad (it’s a flash in the pan, trust us) has had on geeks and geekdom at large.  Fire up that 26.6k modem, plug in that AOL free-trial CD you got in the mail, and whatever you do, don’t let anyone pick up that land-line as you sit back and plug-in to a brand new episode of Monkey in the Cage!*

Episode 12 – New Year Nostalgia

The New Year is finally upon us.  2011 brought some good times for us here at Monkey in the Cage, namely the birth of our wicked cool podcast (that’s for any fans we may have in Boston).  But, as awesome as 2011 was, 2012 is going to be a thousand times better.  This year is going to be a geeks dream year come true – everything from video games and movies to conventions and podcasts.  Like everyone else, we look forward to the new year and what it brings, but at the same time, we can’t help but take a nostalgic trip down memory lane.

This week, as everyone is looking forward, we’re looking back.  Join us as we talk about the a crap load of things from our childhood and adolescence that we both love an miss.  Be it cereals, tv shows, cartoons, or professional wrestling, nothing is off-limits as we babble on and on and commit the cardinal sin of dating ourselves and feeling old.  Let your ears take a listen and your mind reminisce on the things that helped make us the geeks we are!
