The TCT Archives are Back!

After a herculean effort rebuilding our feed, remastering audio and updating old art, we are pleased to announce The Cavern Today’s podcast feed has been officially relaunched, and our complete podcast archives are now available on your favorite streaming services, including Apple Podcasts, Spotify, and Pocket Casts.

In addition, our newly-updated website now features the return of content we haven’t made available since 2010, including exclusive interviews with Rand Miller, coverage of the 2006 Cyan Pizza Party, and at long last, our archives of The Cavern Today Extra – our “shortwave” service which covered important in-cavern updates between 2005-2008.

To be clear, this is only a relaunch of our archives, and we have no plans for any new content at this time. However, if that changes, we’ll be sure to let you know.

Check us out at – and when you’re in-cavern, feel free to stop by The Cavern Today’s Hood to say hello!

Update 6/13/2022 – An issue affecting the Apple Podcasts version of our feed, where some episodes appeared to be missing, has now been resolved by Apple, and all episodes of our podcast archive should now be playable from Apple Podcasts.

New Project: Over the Fence

Shorah, explorers.

If you’re wondering why there hasn’t been a lot of action from our front, it’s mostly because the crew behind TCT has been committing themselves to a new podcasting project called Over the Fence.

Over the Fence is a new podcast named and designed after the short-lived TCT miniseries called The Cavern Today: Over the Fence, and covers topics in the gaming, entertainment, and technology world, with a focus on the mindset of an adventure gamer.
