Episode 27 Part Four - Strange Days

Welcome back to "Live from the ManCave!!!" These are Strange Days we're living in, friends. Kanye's in the White House? Bill Cosby's NOT raping people?? Beer still tastes great??? Who can you rely on to cover it all for you? The goddamn ManCave, that's who.

In this episode, CraigMakk sides with women all over the world in the #MeToo movement 'cuz he's sensitive like that; Serious Jest schools you on why he certainly won't be voting with Team Clinton anytime soon; and the guys discuss some very serious topics involving the current rape culture climate, Trump the Manipulator, and Cosby's possible escape from the slammer. All while continuing to drink some pretty solid you know they can't stay serious for long. So strap in, grab a beer, and welcome back to "Live from the ManCave!!!"

Trust me, there's still some funny buried in there. It'll just take you a minute to find it. So grab yourself a beer, strap in, and welcome back to "Live from the ManCave!!!"

Episode 27 Part Two - We're Makin' MOOOOOOOOVES!!

Welcome back to "Live from the ManCave!!!" The awesome interview with Legal Fox continues, and things get a bit creepy. Let's just say, if you like farmyard animals in that special way, you'll certainly love this episode.

 In this episode, Legal Fox takes a couple jabs at a certain "Orangutan-in-Chief;" Serious Jest takes a harsh and surprisingly brave stance against white supremacy; and CraigMakk tries to get in touch with his feelings....for cows. Plus they drink a bunch of awesome beers that you will love, and manage to keep themselves under control. But don't worry, there is still PLENTY of time left for the madness to ensue. So grab yourself a beer, strap in, and welcome back to "Live from the ManCave!!!"

Live from the MCU!!!: Episode Four - I Hate It When An Evil Plan Never Comes Together

Welcome back to "Live from the MCU!!!" Do you like nuclear bombs? And flooding of major cities? And endless planning sessions with no resolution? How about two bickering old supervillains who cannot agree on anything? If so, then boy oh boy, will you love this episode!

 In this episode, CraigMakk and Serious Jest accomplish very little, argue about a whole lot, advance the story an amount that can only be measured in micro-steps, and weirdly venture into the always friendly topic of politics. Luckily they have some pretty incredible beers to pass the time. Sorry for the complete waste of time, Minister of Gaming tried your best. So strap in, grab a beer of your own, and welcome back to "Live from the MCU!!!"

Beer(s) of the Show: Founders Backwoods Bastard Bourbon Barrel-Aged Scotch Ale, Evil Genius Purple Monkey Dishwasher Chocolate Porter, and Kentucky Cream Ale.

Live from the MCU!!!: Episode Three - Stark Raving Mad

Welcome back to "Live from the MCU!!!" You've seen Heat. You've seen Ocean's Eleven. Maybe you've even seen the other Ocean's movies (Although I cannot imagine why. The first one was perfect. And don't get me started on that all-female cast one. Why not just make something completely new instead of shamelessly capitalizing on the star power of Danny Ocean? That really just seems sexist to me). This is absolutely nothing like any of those movies.

In this episode, Fah-Q and The Stalker desperately fight off diarrhea, get peed on in a public bathroom, stare at elevator doors for far longer than anyone should, and use incredibly dated wrestling taglines in an attempt to intimidate harmless scientists. These guys are criminal masterminds. Oh, and they also plan a heist. Sort of. You'll just have to listen for yourself. But don't make the mistake returning GameMaster Jim did, and bring water to a beer fight. That's just insane. So grab yourself a beer, strap in, and welcome back to "Live from the MCU!!!"

Live from the MCU!!!: Episode Two - The Bored Meeting

Welcome back to "Live from the MCU!!!" Do you like meetings? How about scientists? What about bathroom brawls?? If so, then do we have the episode for you!!! (Please gets awesome.)

We welcome Jim back to the party, where he somehow finds a way to make board room meetings slightly less boring than they are in real life. Also, he's a scientist, so I don't know, whatever, man. He's a great story teller. So get ready to hear all the Heat-style heist planning in it's glory, all while the guys drink a whole bunch of beers. It's decided, RPG's are great. So strap in, grab a beer, and welcome back to "Live from the MCU!!!"

Live from the MCU!!!: Episode Origin (of the ManCave Universe)

Welcome to Live from the MCU!!!, an obvious and blatant rip-off of pretty much everything that is culturally relevant these days. Do you like tabletop gaming? Here it is! Do you like superheroes? No problem! Do you like listening to grown men playing childish games on the internet while drinking beers? You came to the right place!! (Although you should really rethink your hobbies...)

Every good superhero (or supervillain) needs a great origin story...why not listen to the ManCave guys try to build one of their own with a "seasoned" GM all while enjoying a beer or five? Say a warm welcome to Jim Sardonic, who tries his best to teach the guys how not to screw this whole thing up. So strap in, grab a beer, and welcome to the mighty origin of "Live from the ManCave Universe!!!"

Episode 26 Part Two: Caution, Angry Gamers

Welcome back to "Live from the ManCave!!!" If you thought the guys were a bunch of nerds before, wow, are you in for a rude awakening. They couldn't geek out any more if they tried. It's a miracle they actually suckered women into having kids with them.

In this part two episode, the guys really dig into the whole mixed media thing by expanding their entertainment horizons. You'll learn about how Google sucks at naming their "non-porn" video sites, and then you'll hear a WHOLE lot about video games. And goblins. And superheroes. And mythological demigods. And robots. And 14th century Czechoslovakian women (yeah, I was confused as well...). Plus stay tuned for some sweet multiplayer gaming options to safely kill your friends in. And stick around for the beer, because you know they'll mention that a few hundred times. Seriously, they might actually have a problem. So grab a beer, strap in, and welcome back to "Live from the ManCave!!!"
