Episode 108 – All Good Things

MITC Ending

“There is an end to everything, to good things as well.” ~Chaucer

Well geeks and geekettes, it’s been one hell of a ride.  For 108 weeks, the crew here at To-Ag studios have aimed to bring laughs, fun, and not a little bit of misinformation to our little corner of the internet, all for your (and our) enjoyment.  As the saying goes, “Life Happens,” and while the MITC crew has done a good job of making the podcast fit into their hectic schedules week after week without missing a beat, it seems that real life has finally caught up with the cast. While we don’t see this as a definitive end, the MITC Podcast will henceforth be on indefinite hiatus.  Fear not, however, as there is still one last episode to enjoy, and we will always keep the mics ready for when the stars are right.

We’d like to thank all of our listeners and supporters these past few years for their honesty, feedback, and awesomeness.  We love you all, and while we won’t be in the studio every week, we do hope that all of the awesome people we’ve met, recorded with, and made friends with keep in touch.

Much Geek Love,

The Monkey in the Cage Podcast

Episode 57 – How Gaming Keeps Us Young

Benjamin Franklin once said that the only things certain in life are death and taxes.  If that’s the case, then Gary Gygax’s response must have been “I thought it was criticals and fumbles?”  Time marches on.  Nations rise and fall.  All we are is dust in the wind… but who cares!  Join us this week as we discuss the reasons we believe gaming to be the true fountain of youth.  From tabletop to video games, nothing does better at keeping us young at heart like a good session of gaming.  Sit back in your easy chair, adjust those trifocals, and give Ponce de León the old two finger salute as you get ready to get young with a whole new episode of Monkey in the Cage!

Playing the Anti-Hero – It Feels So Good to be Such a Jerk

Do you ever want to just punch someone in the face, insult them for no reason, or just plain shoot them from under the table mid-sentence?  Sure, we all do, but in both the real world and the game world, this can bring about a whole slough of consequences.  Luckily, around the gaming table, Player’s are free to test the limits of societal norms and common decency, and as every GM knows, Players don’t just test those boundaries, they obliterate them.  Recently, I’ve assumed the anti-hero archetype in a game, and I have to admit, I might be enjoying it a little too much.
