Conception and Re-launch

Following the conclusion of the Brick Cave Bookcast, Brick Cave started work on a new iteration of a podcast. Director Bob Nelson wanted a showcase more literary content within the podcast, and in 2018, plans were made for the relaunch of the show. The first show launched in September 2018.

Jenn Windrow joined book as a co-host of the show in 2019, co-hosting several shows. In 2020, Jenn moved over to a new show with Proxima Emporium, and still occasionally joins Bob for an episode of the show.

Format Adjustments

In 2020, Bob tinkered with the format of the show, creating 3 separate sub-shows within the main podcast. Inviting Brick Cave poets Bill Campana and Patrick Hare to co-host one segment, authors Bruce Davis and Sharon Skinner to host a second, with Bob continuing to host a 3rd. The format changes proved popular, with the new lineup steadily picking up followers through the remainder of the year.
