Cavebabble Episode 100: Time Machine 1911


Cavebabble turns 100, and to celebrate, we set the controls on our time machine to a century past, the year 1911. We compare life then to ours today, including a focus on two 1911 films which would continue to be remade, The Last of the Mohicans, and The Hunchback of Notre Dame. We also take a look at film stars and directors born in 1911, and introduce a new segment, Cavebabble Theater. This episode is brought to you by The Past is Now.

Cavebabble Episode 92: Snowed In- Four Films Stuck in Storms


Few things are more foreboding or punishing than a howling snowstorm. In film, storms and snow are often used as a moody backdrop, or to portray isolation and fear. In tonight’s solo-cast, I focus on four films which use snow to great effect- The ShiningThe Thing, Akira Kurosawa’s Dreams, and Let the Right One In. This episode is brought to you by Isolation.
