12 Monkeys Uncaged is a podcast dedicated to the Syfy science fiction mystery drama series, 12 Monkeys. Hosted by Cory Metcalfe and Mike Ahr, they discuss each week’s episode, theorize on what might happen next, and share listener feedback out each episode.
TM60 – Alisen Down Interview
One last hurrah for 12 Monkeys Uncaged! Our final podcast shares Mike's interview with Alisen Down, who of course plays Olivia on 12 Monkeys, which was conducted just before the season 4 finale aired on Syfy. Alisen shared the challenges of finding the voice of the Witness and how it paralleled Olivia's journey of self-discovery. Read more...
TM59 – 12 Monkeys – Final Listener Feedback Extravaganza
We turn it over to the listeners who get their final say about 12 Monkeys as a series and how it all ended up in the perfect finale. We heard from so many people who have joined us on this journey these past four years, and you'll get to hear some insights Cory and I could never have come up with on our own. This Listener Feedback Extravaganza is a real treat!
Thank you to our Listener Feedback Extravaganza contributors (one of whom won our final set item giveaway!) including Maria, Alexander, William, John from Oregon, John from Chicago, Angela, Caryle, Mary, Sofie, Kate, Geoff, Taltos, and Carmelita. You all truly made this an epic ending to our podcast. Read more...
TM58 – S4E10 – The Beginning
It's Mike and Cory's last 12 Monkeys episode discussion ever for the series finale, "The Beginning"! What a great way to go out with a wonderful, thoughtful discussion filled with appreciation, speculation, and awe at how perfect everything was, topped off with some insightful, well-phrased feedback from the listeners. Like the show, the podcast got its perfect ending!
Join us for 12 Monkeys news, commentary and analysis for “The Beginning”! This week we talk about Deacon's strange task in the past that we never got to see, Cole's wonderfully understated persuasion of Cassie, the endlessly entertaining reunion of Cole and Ramse, the surprises of other return cameos for other characters, and, of course, the stellar ending with two different epilogues. Just the ultimate series finale of all time! Read more...
TM57 – S4E9 – One Minute More
We marvel over the tightly-written 12 Monkeys penultimate episode, "One Minute More," in which secrets are revealed that reach all the way back to season 1, but we also get plenty of shocking revelations from only the final season, such as who the real demon is! With such a wonderful set up, how could the series finale be anything other than epic?
Join us for 12 Monkeys news, commentary and analysis for "One Minute More"! This week we talk about emotions and decisions portrayed without a single moment of dialogue, the masterful weaving of flashback and current narrative, the heart-breaking sacrifices that both Hannah and Cassie must make, and the beautiful fireside moment that gives this episode its name. Read more...
TM56 – S4E8 – Demons
"Demons" has an epic feel that takes us as close to the beginning and end of things as we've ever been in 12 Monkeys! The medieval setting really gives the story the depth it needed to take the team up the stairs to ring the bell, but what could the loss of the weapon mean? And where would the makeshift splinter machine have taken Cole?
Join us for 12 Monkeys news, commentary and analysis for “Demons”! This week we talk about Jennifer's important realizations, the Seers' cryptic statements, Andrus' amazing characterization, Olivia's grim determination, Cole's wonderful vest rescue, and - of course - Deacon's ultimate sacrifice. Read more...
TM55 – S4E7 – Daughters
Our 12 Monkeys discussion gets a bit literary as we discuss the wonderful duality of "Daughters" as it draws parallels between Hannah and Emma. Interestingly, although Terry Matalas calls the next series of episodes a "descent into darkness," the revelations we get in this one are quite enlightening. Deceiving the Witness to allow the team to reach the distant past is a bold move indeed!
Join us for 12 Monkeys news, commentary and analysis for “Daughters”! This week we talk about Jones taunting Olivia, Olivia's ignorance of how to be a mother, Emma's resulting disillusionment, Cole's increasing impatience, Deacon's cryptic nosebleed, Old Jennifer's surprising return, Adler's swift reprimand of Cole, and much more!

Seeing as how I just finished my third listen of this podcast, I’m more than a little late in writing a review. Listening to the episodes reminds me of watching the show for the first time. Mike and Corey do an excellent job of recapping the episodes and making sense of all the twists and turns, along with throwing out their own questions and predictions.
Perfect Podcast for a Perfect Show!
Wish more people could’ve been along for the ride during the original air dates. Think this show will go down as one of the BEST (Sci-Fi)Time Travel shows ever and will be a big favorite on Netflix, Amazon, & Apple TV once that gets started.
Thanks Mike & Cory for helping us figure out the clues, sharing Cast interviews, and helping build Fan interest to keep the show going for S3 & S4.
Hoping that this is not the end of the Story because I think with what they remember it could make an interesting short series on Netflix, Amazon, or Apple TV, but if it is I’m glad it saw it live!
Great companion to the show!
I really appreciate having these guys break down the show. The level of detail is great and it helps me keep track of what’s going on. Thanks guys!!
