It’s Friday muchachos y muchachas, so that means we’re here to wreck your weekend before it even starts! Yay us! Join your hosts Matt and Robert this week as they discuss a bunch of pointless, worthless, topics… things… Robert’s nuts. Oh, and other stuff too! Saddle up and prepare your ears for a podcast more awkward than sitting down after a vasectomy! It’s a brand new episode of Useless Drivel – A Podcast Without a Point!
What happens when you do something half-assed, ill advised, and only marginally supported? Podcasting, that’s what! Your hosts, Matt and Robert, are back this week and boy, they sure are throwing their privilege around! Sure, they may not fact check, only moderately amuse, and quite possibly offend, but one thing is for sure, they won’t swindle their listeners out of thousands of dollars… just millions of brain cells. So, sit back and relax in the lukewarm moistness of poorly inflated children’s entertainment that is life as you listen to another episode of Useless Drivel – A Podcast Without a Point!
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!
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!
From the clothes we wear to the games we play, we are all individuals. Unique, delicate little flowers chock-full of free will, self-determination, and our own thoughts, dreams, and ideas. Well, ideally we could be bastions of individuality, free from influence, but then there’s that damn pop culture thing around every corner you turn! BAM, it’s on your TV! BANG, it’s in your closet! 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!
Well, we did it! We actually made it a full year – 52 weeks and 52 episodes – without killing one another, destroying our friendships, and offending and alienating the podcast masses! Join us this week as we not only take a look back at our first year, but discuss where we’re at and where the MITC crew is headed in year number two! Oh yeah, we’re also recapping Robert’s GMing rotation, chock full of Board-gamey and RPG goodness. So, settle in and take a listen as we go shout-out crazy and thank all of our listeners, supporters, and most of all each other for a great first year here at Monkey in the Cage!
