Monkeys Took My Jetpack: For Your Reference…

Hey, cats and kids,

Since it seems not all podcatchers are giving access to all of our past issues, I thought I’d do a redirect. Y’see, the next issue of MTMJ will be our first Dungeon World session, and the character generation for said session was done way back in MTMJ#36. Why I set it up that way is beyond my capacity, although I’m sure I had a great reason for it at the time. Anyway, since we pretty much pick up where that one left off, I thought I’d try an experiment and re-link to it here. Hopefully this won’t screw up any RSS feed info or anything. If you have any problems, let me know at

So yes, this is a re-run, but I felt it was necessary, given what’s coming. Thank you for your indulgence.

Monkeys Took My Jetpack #50: The Incident at Ghila Flats

Hi, gang.

As promised, hot on the heels of MTMJ#49 comes this landmark 50th issue. It’s our 7th Dresden Files session. Most of what I wanted to say is said in my opening remarks, so all I will do here is make my apologies for some Skype issues which make some of our dialogue choppy, provide you with a handy-dandy download link, and tell you to…

Monkeys Took My Jetpack #49: Mercury Rising

Howdy, folks!

I know this is very late in coming, but you *were* warned. Hope it won’t happen again. MTMJ Studios is in the process of re-locating, and that is the source of much of this delay. However, as I detail in my opening remarks, I’m going to do whatever I can to speed up the turn-around time for issues, for a couple very big reasons–one of which I’m particularly excited about, as I think you will be, especially as we get deeper into this campaign.

At any rate, here is the issue. Go forth, download, and let us know what you think on our Facebook page.

Monkeys Took My Jetpack #48: Interludes and Investigations

Hi, gang.

Sorry this one was so late in coming. Personal life is in a state of upheaval. I can’t promise there won’t be a similar length of time between this and the next issue, but after that, I expect things to go more smoothly. Now watch, because I said that, I’ll put out three issues in as many weeks. Hmmmm… Ya never know……

Anyway, here it is, our fifth Dresden Files session. The title pretty much says it all.

Don’t forget, to give us feedback, you can either send an email to, or go over to our Facebook page and leave a comment there. We love to hear from you!

Now, loyal listener, go forth … download …

… and enjoy.

Monkeys Took My Jetpack #47: The Kahn Protocols

Hi there, True Believers! …

Wait, that may be trademarked; probably shouldn’t use that.


Hi there, Cosmonauts…

No, that won’t work either…


Hi there, space explorers!

Yeah, that should be okay.

In this issue of MTMJ, we are pleased to embark on an exploration of the retro-sci-fi game which has been on our radar ever since it was released at GenCon a few years ago. It has since spawned two incredible supplements, and a new adventure for every Free RPG Day since its publication. (And, well, Joshua Burnett didn’t show up, so we couldn’t do Dresden, but that’s beside the point…). We are, of course, talking about…

COSMIC PATROL!!!!!!!!!!!!

If you want to follow along with us as we read rules, pick characters, and try to kick the landing gear of this game, you can find the free adventure The Kahn Protocols here.

Grab your rocket ship and your trusty raygun, download this issue…

…and enjoy.

Incidentally, in my closing remarks, I neglected to give you our web address; so in case you’re reading this from a podcatcher of some sort, here is our website.

Now geddouda heeah. Ya bodda me.

Monkeys Took My Jetpack #45: A Stir of Echo

Hi, gang!

As promised, here is the third Dresden Files session. We wound up doing some judicious editing rather than re-recording, so there is still some Skype … residue, if you will. Still, this shouldn’t detract from your enjoyment of the issue.

If you want to discuss the episode, please find us on Facebook and join the fun. As discussed elsewhere in the blog, we had to discontinue comments on the blog, so Facebook will be our new method of communication. Of course, you can always send us an email at

Work is already underway on the next issue, so no more months-long delays. We’re off and running, so buckle up and enjoy the ride!!


…and enjoy!

Red Alert! Red Alert!!

Hi, gang.

This is a heads-up to let you know that we of MTMJ are aware that comments have been unavailable to you for about a week or so now. This is not an accident. Some rather naughty people found a way to hack into our server via comments and/or spambot users. Either way, we’ve been able to curtail the problem, but felt it prudent to turn comments off. As an alternative, because we love getting your feedback and discussing our podcast, I invite you to like us on Facebook. I’ll be keeping the page up-to-date as new issues are posted, and you can easily comment on those threads. I’m looking into the possibility of starting up a Monkeys Took My Jetpack group on Facebook as well, and that would allow us to do anything else we want, such as discussing games, launching impromptu get-togethers for gaming, etc. Pretty much anything the forums could do, we can conceivably do through Facebook. Love our forums, but times change, and so does technology, and I’m extremely late to the Facebook party, but it seems the easiest way to go, now that blog commenting is being discontinued. I’m hoping this will actually prove more convenient for people rather than less, since most of the planet seems to be on Facebook. In any event, thanks for your understanding. See you on our Facebook page!

Monkeys Took My Jetpack #44: Barbarians of Lemuria

Hey, gang!

I know this isn’t the Dresden Files session you all have been waiting for. Rest assured, that’s coming. It’s just taking longer than anticipated. So, to tide you over, I give you, with admittedly minimal editing, our one-shot of Barbarians of Lemuria. I hope you enjoy this issue. I had a lot of fun revisiting this session; I’d remembered the game being awesome, but listening to this has made me want to take this system out for another spin, whether it be using its default genre, or one of the many iterations that have been produced–everything from post-apocalypse to pulp adventure to action-adventure series ripped from the ‘80s.

Anyway, since I neglected to mention it in my opening remarks, I remind you here that you can either write a comment below letting us know what you thought of the game, or send us an email directly to We love hearing from you.

Stay tuned. Dresden will be coming shortly.

Thanks for listening.
