    TCT 46.5: Cyan Visit 2023

    TCT 46.5: Cyan Visit 2023

    After visiting Cyan HQ as part of Mysterium 2023, we decided to record an impromptu addendum to Podcast 46, giving our immediate reactions to our experiences there. We set out intending to record about 10 minutes of audio we could append to the end of Podcast 46… and then went on recording for almost an hour. So instead, we are releasing this audio as a bonus episode. We hope you enjoy our impromptu deep dive into our visit to Cyan HQ!

    Please note this was hastily recorded in a hotel room after our Cyan visit, so the audio quality of this bonus episode is not to our usual standard. That being said, we hope you will bear with us, and enjoy our take on our visit to Cyan!

    Note: This episode contains minor spoilers for Riven – if you have not played the original game, listen at your own risk!

    TCT 46: Live from Mysterium

    “Around the world and across the Ages…” The Cavern Today podcast has been bringing listeners news & views from the Myst fan community since 2005 – and now, for the first time, we’ve recorded a live, in-person podcast from Mysterium 2023 in Spokane! For this, our Summer 2023 edition, join Sh’aeri, Esto, Dalken and Maurus as we discuss:

    * Our trials and tribulations getting to Mysterium

    * The last time TCT members were at a Spokane Mysterium

    * What we’ve loved about Mysterium so far

    * Excitement for tomorrow’s trip to Cyan HQ

    * Audience Q&A

    For the first time ever, you can also WATCH this episode, filmed live at the convention, at this link, courtesy of Mysterium!

    We want to give a HUGE shout-out to all the Mysterium staff for their help making this happen, and for their awesome job putting together the biggest Mysterium to date. You guys rock! We also want to extend a thank you to Justthinktink, who was a huge help to us, and made us awesome TCT-themed gear for the occasion. Thank you so much for your support – we love you!

    TCT 45: Live from the Cavern

    For our Spring 2023 edition, we’re excited to bring you something a little different this time: our first LIVE episode, recorded live in The Cavern Today’s Hood in D’ni on May 5, 2023. Due to the “live” nature of this recording, the format for this episode will be a little different; a bit more like the streamlined talk-only format of Over the Fence.

    Join Maurus, Esto, Dalken, Bert and Sh’aeri, as we discuss:

    * Cyan’s new Firmament Trailer

    * Thoughts on the MOULa Q1 Update

    * State of the Cavern

    * TCT is coming to Mysterium 2023!
