The Reluctant End Of An Era: Universe Box And The UB Archives

Universe Box, a podcast network started by me (Bill Meeks) and my wife (Anne Marie) nearly six years ago, shut down, for the most part, two years ago. I’m cooking up some new ideas, which I hope to share towards the end of the year, but it was important to both of us to preserve all the special memories we created with your help over the years. We still get a surprising amount of downloads across all of the shows, so we wanted to keep everything around for you forever. Hence, the Universe Box archives.

I’ve assembled every podcast we ever created under the Universe Box brand, as well as a few early attempts and extras. Each show has it’s entire feed preserved and searchable on most podcast platforms, as well as video playlist on YouTube for our live streams and backups on Archive.org. It’s our little present to everybody who supported us over the years. Thanks, and enjoy!
