First solo episode since February! I go over the recent Cubing News including Records, Releases, and details about the Moyu Weilong 3×3 WR M. I also read your emails, comments, and share the responses from Question of the Month. Other segments include personal and podcast updates.
Cameron and I have a fascinating discussion about SpeedCubeShop on topics like, the story behind the “Astronomy” names, why it took so long to stock the Gan X, weirdest order comments, and lots of other behind the scenes information.
Listeners of the show, Reggie and CPak are on the podcast this week to talk about being an older cuber. Although the majority of cubers are kids and teens, adults enjoy the hobby as well.
In CuberChats this week, Phoenix and I have a fun informative discussion. First we talk about how to conquer competition nerves and best practices to get good solves in competition. Then we each share some fun stories about assembling cubes, especially big cubes.
With 3x3WF most likely being removed from the World Cube Association list of events, we could see some more changes in the next couple of years. Samuel Baird, CuberCubes, and I discuss possible ideas for adding/removing events and naming competitions. Then we discuss the fake Speedcubeshop.co.uk store and how the real SpeedCubeShop.com is dealing with it.
