Konichiwa, jerkfaces! It’s just about time for the weekend, and we’re bringing it to your ears hard, fast, and uncut! Join your hosts The David, Robert, and Matt as they prepare to send Robert and The Girlfriend on their grand adventure to the Land of the Rising Sun! From uncomfortable sleeping arrangements and tourist traps to Virtual Reality and failed weekend plans, this is an episode you won’t want to miss (or will likely never remember). Slide into something comfortable, light some candles, and give yourself a good body massage as you enjoy this week’s episode of Useless Drivel – A Podcast Without a Point!
Seeing as we didn’t get an overwhelming amount of hate mail following the last couch co-op episode, we’ve decided to torture our poor listeners by running a part two! Join your hosts Matt and Robert as they slog through more dungeons and struggle even more to make their way through a half-assed conversation. This week has a little of everything, including, but not limited to: Nazi killing, mysogynistic American past-times, Cyberpunk Kickstarters, and British television, so clean out your ears, ’cause they about to get gunked up! It’s a brand new episode of Useless Drivel – A Podcast Without a Point.
T’was the day after Christmas, and all through the ‘Net, not a podcast was playing, at least not yet! The geeks and the gamers all had their new swag, so much great stuff they can’t help but brag. From consoles and pirates and a bottle of rum, it’s time for your earholes to have lots of fun. Your hosts Rob and Matt, probably tired and drunk, are here to chit-chat about pointless junk. So, lend them your ears and stick around the joint; it’s a new Useless Drivel, the podcast without a point!

It’s no secret that we here at To-Ag Studios enjoy us some movies – good, bad, and otherwise. Now, while we all have varying and discerning tastes, there are those actors, actresses, and directors that no matter what project they attach themselves too, we absolutely cannot pass up. Join us this week as we discuss the entertainers that make us give them all of our money, whether we like it or not. Check your brain fluid, beware of mutant fish, and kill those hipsters on sight as you settle in for a brand new episode of Monkey in the Cage!
Every Player has memories of their first character, their first adventure, and their first adventuring party. For some, those memories are brief – a goblin spear here, a trapped hallway there, a prick of a GM behind the screen, etc. – while for others they last weeks, months, and even years. For us here at To-Ag Studios, that first true adventuring party lasted for half a decade, and in that five years, WE MUNCHKINED THE F— OUT!!! Join us this week as we step back through the edition wars and discuss the origins and developments of our original Dungeons & Dragons characters. From obscenely powerful equipment and weapons to an utter lack of regard for those silly things called rules, we reminisce (and surprise ourselves too!) about the old adventuring days. Dial up those combat bonuses, stack on those magical enhancements, and be sure to keep a chipmunk skull close at hand as we discuss the Steel and Magic Adventuring Company on a brand new episode of Monkey in the Cage!
For decades, the image of Bilbo, Frodo, Sam, Merry and Pippin were the sole representations of what a hobbit/halfling was. Naturally, this characterization became the standard for the original run of Dungeons & Dragons canon. From the player character race and art to the wealth of literature (R.A. Salvatore’s Regis in particular), the traditional, simple, furry-footed eating machine gamers had grown to love remained the standard. The early nineties saw a slight shift in the characterization, but it was in the year 2000 that gamers saw one of the greatest shifts in demi-human representations, courtesy of D&D 3rd Edition. The world survived the Y2K scare, but forever after, Hobbits and Halflings were no longer synonymous.
