So, the big question this week is: How is it even possible to take a podcast that has no structure or direction and take it completely off the rails? By adding friends to the mix, that’s how! Join your hosts Matt and Robert this week as they’re joined by Tim and The David for an expletive riddled episode that, frankly, is damn near impossible to keep track of, but is one hell of a good time! From tattoos and goth clubs to Australians and baby mugs, it’s a brand new episode of Useless Drivel – The Podcast Without a Point.
Another year, another pilgrimage to Geek Mecca. San Diego Comic-Con came, saw, and conquered just like it does every year, and while none of us here at To-Ag studios were actually able to secure a pass to the convention floor (believe us, it’s difficult, frustrating, and expensive), we still did our best to be present and soak up the geeky goodness we could. Join us this week as we discuss our experiences and some awesome geek news to come out of SDCC 2013! Shine up your cutlass, practice playing Rock Band, and drink some of whatever Wayne Brady’s having as you get ready for a brand new episode of Monkey in the Cage!
What’s better than breaking out a board game, rolling up some characters, or snatching up some controllers with your closest friends? Okay, maybe a lot of things, but in terms of gaming and having fun, nothing! However, those of us with established groups can often take that reality for granted, so what’s an isolated gamer to do to help plant the gaming seed and make that community grow? Join us this week as we tackle listener @AllenStucker’s question and offer an insiders-looking-out perspective on how to help a fledgling gaming community grow. Make nice-nice with the locals, gather up your games, and put on your extrovert pants as we talk gaming communities on a whole new episode of Monkey in the Cage!
In this day and age of online gaming and social media, we geeks have it sweet in the ability to jump on our PC’s or consoles with people from around the world and wreak havoc upon AI foes or one another in any number of settings no matter what time of day it is. Whether it’s banding together for a raid in World of Warcraft, or failing miserably to save the world in a game of Pandemic, one of the best gaming experiences a gamer can have is when teamwork with you closest friends brings sweet, sweet victory or amusingly humiliating defeat.
Join us this week as we shotgun blast your ears with our numerous (and we mean numerous!) experiences with Co-Op gameplay. From video games to board games to tabletop RPG’s, we hit it fast, hard, and chaotic, just like Leeroy Jenkins himself. Plug in and listen up, because the Co-Op memories just keep coming!
So, 2011 is finally winding down and coming to an end. Another year come and gone with most of us having nothing to show for it but wracked up Christmas debt and extra pounds courtesy of the holiday season. While this reality gets most people down as the new year turns the corner, we here at Monkey in the Cage couldn’t be more excited! This year has proven to be a great one for all of the Monkeys, especially since it brought us all closer together and saw the start of our podcast! Woohoo (or boo, if you’re Robert)!
This week, in our end of the year episode, we look back on all the great things we were able to geek out on this past year (or, from September on…). From movies and games to babies and houses, join us as we close out 2011 with some great memories and get ready for a geek-filled 2012. From all of us Monkeys to all of you Internet-ians, have a drunkenly safe and happy New Year and in 2012 always “Nerd out with your Wookie out!”
