So, way, way, WAY back in Episode 8, we here at To-Ag Studios talked Heroes and Villains. Seeing as the Monkeys still had their podcasting training wheels on, we approached two very broad and interesting topics with the reckless abandon of Hulk and Wolverine on a bender. So now, 68 weeks later, we have reconvened our Monkey council in order to once again discuss the hero figure and why we love them. Draw down your cowls, make some therapy appointments, and get your butt out of retirement as were headed for round 2 to discuss Heroes (NOT the show) on a brand new episode of Monkey in the Cage!

Well, boys and girls, another year has come to an end. 2012 has been good to us over here at the podcast, and we hope all of our efforts have brought you a great many laughs this past year. Behind us lies a failed apocalypse, crappy politics, and an awesome year of geekdom. We don’t know what all 2013 has in store for us, but you better believe it’s going to have some kick-ass geek times, sweet movies, and MORE PODCASTS! Join us this week as we B.S. our way into the New Year and talk about whatever randomness comes to mind. Throw away that useless old Mayan Calendar, cast aside those unneeded show-runners, and pimp out your E-Z Bake oven as you prepare your ears for a brand new episode of Monkey in the Cage!
Zombies. Zombies, zombies, zombies. They are everywhere these days. They’re on your TV, they’re in your movie theater, they show up at little kids birthday parties (true story), but what is it that makes these mindless flesh-eating killing machines so appealing? Join us this week as we look at the zombie explosion that has taken over pop-culture like a … well, like a horde of zombies! Lock the doors, board up those windows, and remember you can drink the water from the toilet tank if you need to , as we talk Zombie-mania on a whole new episode of Monkey in the Cage.
Of the multitude of geek hobbies and influences that guide the MITC crew through their everyday lives, there is one in particular that has served as glue to keep us together. It’s the ketchup to our mustard, the salt to our pepper, the dungeon to our dragon, and while we’ve talked about it plenty, our listener David from Quebec wants to know more! Join us this week as we open up, share our feelings, and discuss what it is about role playing games that “does it” for us. Snatch up those character sheets, buy some new sets of dice, and get ready for some sexual tension on an all 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!
HEY YOU GUYS!!!! This week it’s a blast to the past and a chance at redemption as we’re joined in the Goondocks by none other than our very own Jared the Intern, fresh off the plane from the middle of nowhere (aka Missouri).

Grab your Baby Ruth, set booby-traps for the Fratellis, and Truffle Shuffle your way to somewhere comfortable as you prepare to hear our thoughts on the search for One-Eyed Willie’s gold on a whole new episode of Monkey in the Cage!
