Whether they’re climbing a skyscraper, playing a professional sport, or taking a road trip with a hapless human partner, Monkey Club with Chris and Chris provides in-depth analysis of all your favorite cinematic simians and the movies they made famous. Join them every other week as they work their way through a century’s worth of the good, the bad, and the monkey!
011 Going Bananas (1987)
Recorded late one night in the summer of 2016, here is the fabled "Lost Episode" of Monkey Club. Until now, it has existed only in segments scattered about the hard drive of a mostly dead early-00s Gateway computer. Through an exhaustive process, it has finally been recovered and painstakingly restored.
Join Chris Podcasts (then just starting out with Now and Again), Cara O'Regan (who would go on to co-host Wistful Thinking and be an all-around regular on the CageClub Podcast Network), and Christian Larson (some guy) as they discuss a movie so horrifyingly terrible it melted down a laptop: 1987's Going Bananas.
The CageClub Podcast Network Celebrates its 1000th Episode!
In August 2015, we released our very first podcast and proceeded to tear through Nicolas Cage’s filmography at a breakneck pace. We had no idea that we'd continue after we finished Cage’s filmography, but we asked, “What’s next?” and went from there. After nearly four years, we are releasing our 1,000th episode.
In this episode, Joey Lewandowski talked many of your favorite CageClub Podcast Network hosts: Mike Manzi of Third Time’s A Charm, Joe Two of 2 Fast 2 Forever, Chris Podcasts of Now and Again, Brian Rodriguez of High School Slumber Party, Kyle Reinfried of Foodie Films, Jordan Polan-Clarke and Cara Gael O’Regan of Wistful Thinking, Aislinn Addington of The Contenders, Lindsay Gibb of Winona Forever, Jonah Rubino of X is for Podcast, and Nico Vasilo and Kevo Risse of .html.

010 Project X (1987)
Chris and Chris are joined by Dr. Dan Salerno to discuss the most pointless military program ever conceived, what made 80s movies so wonderful, and the absolute cutest little creature in film history (and no, we're not talking about a young Matthew Broderick). Laughs are had, parallels to 1995's Born to be Wild are made, and the most enthusiastic round of "Monkey Business" in Monkey Club history is played. Check it out!
009 Funky Monkey (2004)
The Monkey Club boys are back from their summer sabbatical in Central Africa with one of their most anticipated episodes yet - a look at 2004's Funky Monkey, starring Stranger Things and Cutthroat Island's Matthew Modine! Chris, Chris, and special guest Steve Payson delve into the insanity of this surprisingly star-studded film, as well as the strange world of wedgie fetishism. Join them, won't you?
008 Congo (1995)
Who would have thought that a mid-90s action film based on a Michael Crichton book and featuring killer apes, laser guns, and Tim Curry would be so terrible? Join Chris, Chris, and special guest Vashawn Vanish as they embark on a long, painful slog through the Congo with a little help from Ernie Hudson and That Dude from Nip/Tuck!
007 Planet of the Apes (1968)
Monkey Club continues its brief streak actually decent movies with a discussion of 1968's Planet of the Apes! This week Chris and Chris are joined by Cage Club and Keanu Club co-host Mike Manzi for an in-depth discussion of the sci-fi classic, and how it expertly handles issues like racism, religion, animal cruelty, and Charlton Heston's glorious bare buttocks.
