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!
