CubeCast Podcast

Cubecast Podcast (also Cubecast, CubeCast) is a podcast on cubing started by Andrew Kang in June 2010. It was originally hosted by Andrew and Thom Barlow. Each episode lasts about one hour and features a conversation by the hosts and one or two notable cubers, invited as special guests, on recent events in speedcubing and other cubing topics. After Episode 20 in the original season, Cubecast added Dan Cohen and David Woner as regular guests and streamed live at justin.tv/cubecast with audience interaction through chat. The original season finished after its 24th Episode.

After a long break, The podcast was brought back for a second season in the latter half of 2012 by Chris Wall and Austin Reed. They made 5 Episodes, plus a Pilot that was fairly unsuccessful. The new season follows a similar format to the original, but with the episodes being shorter in length. The original hosts came back on July 2013 to continue with the podcast while allowing Chris and Austin to continue with their own show which the Andrew referred to as Season 2. The original hosts return was dubbed as Season 3 and created 5 episodes similar to Season 1. Soon after its 5 episodes, it began to disappear once again as with Season 2.

In January 2015, the Cubecast Podcast was rebooted under the name CubeCast 2.0 by Jules "Waffle" Manalang, Brandon "Ranzha" Harnish, and Mitchell Lane with the permission of Andrew Kang. CubeCast 2.0 employed a 3 host on-call system to ensure that episodes will be recorded and released even if one cannot make it or a guest is not present. This resurgence offered a new website, CubeCast.cubing.net, featuring the CubeCast 2.0 episodes as well as an archive of all of the episodes of the past iterations.
