81: The Name Dropper

Brokentoken-podcast-episodestamp-81

June 2018

We are in the fortunate position this month to have the esteemed Nicholas Baldridge of the “For Amusement Only: The E.M. & Bingo Pinball Podcast” sit in with us this month for tri-hosting duties as we run him through the (un)ceremonious wringer as we talk all things Pinball and the new publication “Coin-Op Carnival”.  If you’ve not heard of this publication, then please go check it out (https://www.coinopcarnival.com/) and then come back and listen to this episode.

If you’d rather just dive right in, then here’s the abridged version: Coin-Op Carnival is a joint venture with Nick and his co-creator Ryan Claytor (of Elephant Eater Comics) and is a 4-volume series that features interviews with E.M. Pinball game designer(s), an E.M. pinball game reviews, in-depth technical articles (E.M. tech explained, etc.), industry-related comics and more.  It’s great fun and it feeds the brain as well – we guarantee you’ll learn something about the early days of Pinball or Brent will give you your money back!

We also catch up on a bit of industry news, talk about a new arcade component reproduction that has literally been years in the making and lament the last call of Batman ’66 before Stern “shuts it down forever”.

All this and more in 81!

April 2019

We are back in the studio for ep. 80 and while we might not be as epic as our namesake MCU counterpart, we certainly think we bring it back home this month, if nothing else in the number of commutes for this episode!

There’s been much to catch up on and we run the gamut this month, discussing everything from updates on gameroom audio setups, pinball art blades, Texas Pinball Festival, a Neo-Geo MVS pickup, oscilloscopes, the new Coin-Op Carnival book release, rebuilding G07′s and the K4600, spend some of Brent’s money, discuss Black Knight Sword of Rage and Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory and…..well… you get the idea. :)

We also add in a ton of feedback and it generated some great discussion, so thanks to everyone who submits and keep it coming!

All up, we do our best super-hero podcasting for over 4 hours and this is all we have to show for it…CORRECTION – we do have a new mascot, but you’ll have to listen to get the backstory on that!

77: The Day Late, Dollar Short Show

January 2019

Well, well, well – it had to finally happen.  We are a day late on show publishing and I wish we could blame it on border security, government shutdown or the polar vortex, but at the end of it all – it was a failure of our best friend (and arch nemesis): technology.  It takes some time to move around the GIGABYTES of unprocessed audio we make for each month’s show and by the time it lands at its final resting spot to become the MP3 we all know and love, our baritone has traversed its way from the moon and back (figuratively).  Somewhere over Albuquerque, some archive files bit the dust and we had to retry (and retry) before there was success.  But alas, we made it!!

This month we have not only the usual gameroom and hobby updates, but we also hear from a first-timer to the show – Corey Stupp.  Corey is the new face behind the Louisville Arcade Expo (and a developer at Stern Pinball) and gives us the low-down on everything we can expect from the 2019 show.  We also hear from our friends at Marco Specialities as we do some more floor and booth interviews from the 2018 Grand Ole Gameroom Expo.  We then spend some of Brent’s money on my favorite things – Nintendo parts!!  Oh – and a new CPS2 infinikey, joystick grommets and all kinds of necessities.  We give our best thoughts on the new Munsters Pinball from Stern and then make way for some feedback as well.

We may be a day late (and Brent is a dollar short) but we made it!  Thanks for everyone asking “hey – where are you guys?!?!”  Makes us feel loved.
