The Useless Majors
The Useless Majors
Jordan Starcrash, Miles Jenks
A story about a bunch of college graduates trying to make it in the real world and get real jobs..... ....even though their diplomas were radioactive and gave them superpowers.... ....And the real world is being conquered by Evil....
Episode 10: 'Unpresidented: Politic-Talk-Boom,' or 'Minor Setbacks, Major Beginnings'
 It's here finale! Episode 10 'Unpresidented: Politic-Talk-Boom,' or 'Minor Setbacks, Major Beginnings.' Following the events of episode 9, the entire UMU (Usless Majors Universe) is stuck. They have all been quarantined to the Marbleton High gymnasium, a designated safe zone, while the Jinglehammer destroys the town. Yes, the fabled Jinglehammer has been summoned (accidentally, by Mr. M), and after escaping the Marbleton Volcano, is wandering around the town, destroying everything in his path, searching for something. But for what? What's a but for what? Find out!   As this goes on, drama, lies and misunderstandings threaten to destroy our heroes from within: Zwayne, afraid to face his destiny, continues to stall in any way. Manny, suffering a cramped style, does anything he can to hide from his father Mr. L. Patrick, feeling abandoned, has not been able to leave the stage. Without his friends around, he takes out his anger on the demanding captive crowd of heroes, villains, and regular citizens the only way he knows how: with music. Victor doesn't like this side of Patrick. David, barely surviving the booby-trapped dance-off with Evil Al, and attack by 200 bees that followed, has taken some much needed time to think about his life, the people in his life, and what he needs to do. BRE and Sheena have hit a bump in their relationship. If Sheena could stop being so stubborn, and BRE could get her eye-lamps fixed, maybe they could see where the other is coming from. And finally, Anne. Following the suggestion she got from her idol Broad Daylight, Anne is doing everything she can to resolve her friends' problems and form the Superhero team that she knows they could be, and that Marbleton really needs. Can she succeed in time to save the town from the Jinglehammer? Let's hope so!   Meanwhile, the President-Elect Thomas Duke, AKA The Villainous Alpha-Bat, works with Alfredo to write an acceptance speech, unaware his victory is one of the final pieces to Kaufman's evil plan for World Domination. .....A plan that does not involve Tommy, a plan that could seal his fate. But one man knows this, and is on a mission to save Thomas Duke and stop Kaufman before he can destroy/take over the World. ....Unfortunately, that man is the senile, kooky Randall 'The Duke' Duke. Can he save his son and thereby, the World? Find out on the Season One Finale!

Sometimes you just need to escape, am I right? For example, sometimes, your town is being destroyed by the Jinglehammer, and the entire town is evacuated to the High School gym, the very same High School gym where you and your friends were trying to relax and enjoy yourselves. We've all been there, as have our heroes. So, what do you do in those situations? Watch TV, of course! And that's exactly what they do in Marbleton, too.  Please enjoy the 'Shows' one-off!   Season One Finale coming soon!

Episode 9: Tomorrow-Day Night Fervor, or Blunderball
The Useless Majors podcast was written, recorded and edited in St. Louis, MO by Miles Jenks and Jordan Starcrash, and stars Miles Jenks, Samuel Rupe-Smith, Jonathan Kirner, Anna Drehmer, and Jordan Starcrash. Guest Starring in this episode: Jonathan Booker as Marlin Perkins and Abe the Giant, Joe Roeder as Patrick McDonald and John Adams, Gael Jenks as Sheena the High-School Weeyach and Other Guy 1, and Robert Severson as Evil Al and Cultist   Prepare yourselves for the penultimate thrill of the season! What was that rumble? What's going on here? Do you have a minute (or 45) to talk about Evil? While Zwayne is stuck at theatre, dealing with a ravenous influx of villains and Jinglehammer cultists, the rest of our heroes find themselves at the Marbleton High Gymansium for the annual Tomorrow-Day Night Dance! Spike Ambrose, leader of Marbleton's premiere punk band Spike and the Other Guys, is left in the lurch when he's kicked out the band (and his van is stolen), leaving Patrick McDonald to scoop up the slot as entertainment. Is he prepared? You might be surprised! ....might. While working hard to avoid any work at all, Manny stumbles upon a secret, exclusive ghost party, and runs into a few old friends, while others forego their invites (that they totally received) to save the World from.... you guessed it... Evil. Anne, trying to prove herself as being 'cool', has been implemented into a plan to help Sheena The High-School Weeyach sneak out of her house to attend the dance with BRE, while David is focused on breaking up Evil Al and Honey Bae at any ridiculous cost. Think a booby-trapped high school dance contest HAS to be a visible gag? Prepare your ears to be WRONG! Yes, both of them, even the right one. But! It's all fun and games until everyone forgets about a Presidential Election! And this time, it may really cost us! For once, I'm not gonna spoil it, not even as a joke.

Mortimer and Kevin, Crime Fighters
Real quick, listeners: Ever wonder who it was, like, forever ago Alfredo said he ACTUALLY works for? Remember that? Me neither, of either. But f'real, after the vicious attack by Betty Duke, Senator Kaufman has found himself incapacitated and laid-up in Marbleton General Hospital, face unrecognizable under the layers of bandages, trying to get a moment of peace to plan his next move. Little does Kaufman know he has surprise roomie joining him; Mortimer Duke!  Yes, the prodigal twin brother of Randall, and beloved uncle of Thomas Duke, AKA The Villainous Alpha-Bat, has come to Marbleton under ridiculous circumstances, and finds himself in Marbleton General Hospital under equally (or greater-ly) ridiculous circumstances. Will Kaufman be able to conceal his identity from Mortimer? Or will Mortimer outsmart him? Bearing in mind Mortimer is a Duke, I think you can guess.

Episode 8: ‘Evil Al and David: Bonehead by Dawn’ or ‘Mr. M vs. The Volcano’
The w8 is over, here is much-anticip8ed and long-aw8ed Episode 8! ......apologies for that. Anne is dealing with some serious self-image issues, mainly pertaining to how she is being treated by David at work. But when famous parody artist Evil Al appears in town, and invites himself to Honey Bae's school dance as her date, David spirals into complete illogical dumb-buttedness. Why should Anne even care what David thinks? Let's find out! Following Betty's instructions, Randall 'The Duke' Duke has set out on his quest to the Marbleton Volcano to stop the Misters from destroying their relics, followed closely behind by his son Thomas Duke, AKA The Villainous Alpha-Bat, who is determined to stop his Father's quest short, and also stop the Misters from destroying the relics in the volcano. Wait, that's the same quest, isn't it? *Sigh* Classic Thomas Duke. Wait some more, Kaufman needs the relics TO BE destroyed! Can Kaufman stop the both of them from ruining his Evil plans? Betty and Randall could be in danger, if so! I guess you better listen to find out! But Randall 'The Duke' Duke and Thomas Duke, AKA The Villainous Alpha-Bat, aren't the only ones racing to Mco and the Marbleton Volcano; The Misters are dealing with their own silly speed bumps while transporting the relics for destruction. As is Zwayne, who is transporting the slightly intoxicated Patrick and Manny from the Zoo to Mco. Joining their troop are the ghosts of Marlin Perkins and 'Macho Man' Teddy Roosevelt, who have both promised to share the grandest secret of their ghostly realm, as long as Zwayne can get them the Chalupacabra. Can he do it? Can any of them do it? What is it? Why don't ya listen, weirdo! And pay attention, this episode is totally vol-canonical! Waka waka!
