About the show
EZ-Mode Unlocked opened its digital doors in January of 2009, already boasting a close-knit community of gamers who first connected with each other in the forums of another popular podcast of the time, Video Game Outsiders. EZ-Mode was originally a community show for VGO hosted by forum members Dana, Treeslounge00, and FrankLloydWrong. They eventually decided to expand into a full podcast and, respecting the wishes of the VGO hosts, created a separate community. The rest, as they say, is history. Dana, Trees, and RobTurboGA led the new podcast EZ-Mode Unlocked for 300 amazing, time traveling episodes. Over the years EZ-mode’s family grew and continued to grow closer as a community. When the hosts announced their podcast retirement, the community banded together to create a new show aiming to keep the EZMU online family together.
The name Future Monkeys references the EZMU tradition of talking about games from the past, present, and future. When host RobTurboGA was away, the normal soundboard was unavailable; however Dana and Trees made do. They filled the ears of listeners with sounds of monkeys from the past, present and future (lasers may have been involved).
Future Monkeys is dedicated to our fallen EZMU brother TechieQ, who for years bravely fought cancer before succumbing to the disease in April of 2015. TechieQ was an amazing person: courageous, kind, and gentle to a fault. We are honored to have known him. Rest in peace.
