Episode 8 - Season Finale
Thursday, 17 December, 2015
Well, it's time for the season finale. We had plenty of fun this season of the Cubecast and there's still lots things we need to do to improve. We've come so far on the whole "no news is good news" but really we know what we're bad at and will work hard for next season so be super amazing.

Have a listen to this seasons final episode here!

Speaking of next season, the Cubecast is hiring for the next season! We're looking for people with expertise at web development, public relations, news reporting, music creation and more! Details can be found at this LINK

We look forward to meeting everyone who'll apply and hope to have you on board to create another exciting season of the Cubecast Podcast! Stay tuned for the next season.

And until then, thanks for the support and once again, thank you for tuning in!

Episode 7 with Keaton Ellis and Drew Brads
Tuesday, 20 October, 2015
Oh, geeze. It’s been a while hasn’t it? Well we haven’t forgotten about the cast and are working hard to make it better. As some of you might know we had some scheduling issues with Anthony and opted to just skip that and move onto the next episode. We kind of lost our momentum and spiraled slowly into delays after delay. But we didn’t forget about it! So here it is, please visit the episode tab for the latest episode with Drew Brads and Keaton Ellis.

Thanks for your patience and thanks for listening

We’re doing a listener tagline raffle, if you would like to be entered into the chance of winning a $5 gift code to thecubicle.us all you have to do is just send us an email with your purposed listener taglines. Limit 1 entry per person, so give us the best tagline you can. All approved taglines will end up on the website and if we like it enough, we’ll feature it on the show, regardless if you win the prize or not.

Episode 1 Release - Collin Burns
Friday, 16 January, 2015
We proudly release our latest episode with Collin Burns. Please check it out in the episodes page!

New to the show is LISTENER TAGLINES! If you haven’t noticed, our taglines under our logo changes every time the page is loaded. That’s where listener taglines come in. We want you, our loyal listeners, to send us Taglines through cubecast@gmail.com .  If it makes us laugh we’ll put on the site, and if we like it enough, we’ll even say it on air!

In other news, we have gotten some outside help in term of RSS and iTunes, despite this, we have little to no ETA on when we’ll get RSS set up. But we have someone on board so rest easy knowing we’re working on that for you!

Lastly we’re proud to announce that we’ve partnered up with theCubicle.us to bring you a better listener experience. Thanks to theCubicle.us, we’re able to finally give out prizes to all our loyal listeners and in the future promocodes and apparel. In the meantime, we’d like to just say thanks to theCubicle.us for helping us out!



Getting ready for Episode 1
Friday, 09 January, 2015
We’re getting ready for the next episode! Here at the CubeCast, we want you, the listener, to participate as much as possible with us. It’s with your help that the CubeCast can continue to stay interesting. We welcome all suggestions and comments and questions for us, the hosts! It helps us improve for the better. So please don’t hesitate to send us some feedback at cubecast@gmail.com!

On another note we are going to be recording with Collin Burns this weekend, January 11th. For those who don’t know, Collin is the current 3x3 NAR holder and the 2014 US National Champion. If you have any questions you’d like discussed on the show with Collin please send those in us at the same email as above.

We want to try a lot of new things, which we’ll be revealing as the show continues over time, but for the time being we’d like to bring back old CubeCast sections of the show. Namely quickfire questions. Quickfire questions are short answer back to back questions about anything. Think of it as a way to get to know the Guests and the Hosts Better. We’d prefer if you tell us which quickfire question is for which person on the show in your email. Also we’d really appreciate if you place “quickfire” in the subject line of the email so our filters can pick them up much easier. So send those quickfire questions in!

Other than that, we’re working on site maintenance, getting an RSS feed set up for the episodes. The latter will also help us getting our show on iTunes. We have real lives too, so it might take a while unless we get some outside help. We’re not as experienced as the other hosts in this regard, so we apologize in getting stuff finished very, VERY slowly.

TL;DR - Collin is next, ask questions, RSS feed soon.

Happy Cubing!
Waffo, Ranzha, Meechay



The CubeCast 2.0: Launched!
Tuesday, 06 January, 2015
Happy New Year!

With the new year come all kinds of "new"s--new resolutions, new goals, new starts.
And along with this new year comes a new version of the podcast we all know and love, the CubeCast 2.0! With three new hosts, new guests, a new website, and a new and refreshed look on the community, we're proud to launch the CubeCast 2.0 with the release of CubeCast 2.0 Episode 0! Click to listen, and click here to view the show notes.

We're going to try keeping this iteration of the CubeCast similar to the original in that we'll still report on records, current events, and answer the Tyler Kerr's Quickfire Questions. However, we won't necessarily have a guest every episode, we may have recurring guests or correspondants, we may have a different configuration of hosts in consecutive episodes--the CubeCast 2.0 will be tailored to be as consistent as possible while not sacrificing the quality of content being provided and the quality of the format in which the content is being provided.

Soon, we'll be posting all of the CubeCast 2.0 episodes not only on this site, but also on YouTube, so that listening without downloading is possible, and so that you can be instantly notified when new episodes are released. Fun stuff!

We know there are a lot of changes going about, and we sincerely hope that you enjoy the first episode. It is guestless, and is intended to ease us all--hosts and listeners--into a new era of the CubeCast.

Happy cubing,

Waffo, Ranzha, and Meechay
