We may babble about movies, but that hasn’t kept me from posting other odd adventures we’ve had over the years. The handful of travel episodes I’ve produced are among our favorites, and best represent the time capsule of experiences Amber and I envisioned for Cavebabble seven years ago (as of September 22). They were grueling to edit, but completely worth it. I’m sure they always will mean much more to us than to our listeners, but I’ve tried to keep them funny and interesting. If you would like to enjoy one of these episodes, I’ve gathered the links here, so that you don’t need to scroll through our feed, searching for them yourself. I hope you hear something you enjoy.
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 set, we should be able to migrate to the new location without interrupting service, or having to resubmit a new feed (which would be horrible!). If I upload all past episodes to the new servers, I will then need to go through all past postings, and update the show links. Long story short, I’m not sure what form all this will take, how many back episodes we will keep, or how long I will have the few remaining hairs I still cherish. I will keep this blog updated with the latest news, and hope we do not lose too many listeners in the process.
Thanks for listening, everyone, and hopefully this inconvenience will be a small one.
For a great explanation/rant about all this madness, read TC Kirkham’s post here:
Mevio Shuts Down, screws hundreds of podcasters; What next for PNR Networks podcasts?
The Twilight Zone meets The Tramp on the way to Sunnyvale Rest Home! Inspired by the 50th anniversary of the classic Twilight Zone episode, Kick the Can, we travel through a dimension of sight and (sometimes) sound, ultimately ending up in 1914, enjoying the silent comic antics of Charlie Chaplin. Join us! This episode is brought to you by Black and White Talkie Talkie.
Our Trek through the worlds of the Federation continues with Emissary, the pilot episode of Star Trek: Deep Space NIne. Sisko and crew stand ready to take on the Cardassians, or any other species wanting to exploit wormholes and abandoned space stations. This episode is brought to you by Beach Giggles.
Apes are being used as pets and slave labor, and Caesar is here to do something about it. The time is ripe for revolution, and the planet will never be the same. We continue our look at the Planet of the Apes films by covering Conquest of the Planet of the Apes and Battle for the Planet of the Apes. This episode is brought to you by Wal Mart Masks.
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.
The Babblers return to the TARDIS, and continue our journey with the tenth Doctor, David Tennant. Martha Jones is also along for the ride, as we discuss season three of this science fiction television classic. We recorded audio for both season three and four, but the show was so long that we decided to break it into two parts. This episode is brought to you by Getting it Right.
Cavebabble combines forces with TC Kirkham and Kim Brown, hosts of Subject: Cinema, for our first crossover show! A few weeks back, the hosts of both shows shared lists of terrible films for the others to be subjected to. Tonight, we discuss the first four films from those lists: Deadly Duo, The Impossible Kid, Birdemic: Shock and Awe, and Kung Fu Arts. It’s the first meeting of our podcast minds, but not the last. Look for our next crossover show in August!
At this point, my fellow babblers are threatening to boycott, and daily I question my resolve and sanity. We watched a chupacabra movie last night. It’s one of the worst films I’ve ever seen. I won’t spoil the fun- that can wait for this week’s show. Tonight? Bigfoot. I may not live through the evening.
