Cavebabble is Dead… Long Live Cavebabble!

Our time with Mevio is finished, and all our episodes have been transferred to Libsyn. Oddly enough, that’s where we started 5 1/2 years ago, before being lured away by free hosting. Despite being disappointed by a skimpy 10-day warning that everything would be killed, bitterly complaining about a service we paid nothing for doesn’t make much sense. We saved nearly three years’ worth of monthly fees. Would I do it again? Probably not. Support for free services is non-existent, and although leaning on stats to determine success isn’t a good way to… well, determine success, I’m glad to

Big Changes to Cavebabble, Thanks to Mevio

Those already part of our Facebook group have heard what is heading our way: Mevio, the current host of all our podcast episodes, has decided to shut down all outside-produced content, which includes Cavebabble, as well as the other PNR Networks shows. In just nine days, our past episode files no longer will be available, and deleted from Mevio’s servers.

We are in the process of lining up a replacement service for Mevio for file hosting. With 8.41 GB of past content, how we handle the back-catalog is still up in the air. With how I have the iTunes feed

Family Matters

On April 27, I lost a sister. It was sudden, completely unexpected, and not from an accident. Less than 24 hours in the hospital, she was gone, and we had very few answers as to why. I hadn’t seen Kathy in over a decade- we had written emails and chatted on the phone during that time, but in my mind she remained the same age I’d last seen her. After her death, viewing photos of her from the last two years has been surreal. My other two

On the Road in Higginsville

The babblers went on the road today, in order to visit the Davis Theatre 4 in Higginsville, MO. This theater currently is one of three featured on TC Kirkham’s Save Our Screens (SOS) site. When we learned it was only two hours from home, we knew we had to take the trip. If you’ve listened to our Palaces, Drive-Ins and Multiplexes episode (#102), you’ve heard my story of the two palace-style theaters in the town I grew up in. Both were an integral part of my childhood, and any chance to visit similar venues is something I can’t miss.

URGENT for PNR Networks Fans: Prepare for file migration

If you haven’t seen the news as yet, PNR Networks is one of the services that have been hit by what I’ve taken to calling the “MEVIO Massacre”. Although at last check most podcasts were up and online again, we have decided not to take chances with this in the future.

For more info on the situation, check out this post: http://techcrunch.com/2012/02/01/pro-tip-dont-pivot-your-way-into-irrelevancy/

This weekend, I  will begin to implement plans to move all files currently on Mevio – the podcasts themselves – to a new independent service platform. This move will affect all current PNR Networks podcasts –  Subject:CINEMA, Subject:CINEMA MICRO Focus, Mirrorball Mayhem, Platinum Roses’ Garden, and

Not Dead Yet

Cavebabble hasn’t died. Really, it hasn’t. You just wouldn’t know from my lack of posting in the last couple weeks. I’m back at it now, but am wondering if I would be better off just posting this stuff on our Facebook page. Certainly, more people would read it. Hmm. Decisions, decisions…

Going Ape


Cavebabble is going to spend at least two shows covering the hairy world of the Planet of the Apes movies. We may even venture into the world of the live action and animated television series. Big thanks go out to Our Friend Russell. He’s provided us with a great complete boxed DVD set to enjoy for a while.
