October 2014

This is part 2 of 3 of our coverage from Pinball Expo 2014.  This episode is a recording of the panel discussion we participated in entitled “Covering the World of Pinball, One Podcast at a Time”, held on Saturday October 18th.  This was a moderated discussion led by Expo organizer David Fix.

Brent and I had the honor of sitting in with an ensemble cast consisting of Preston and Patrick from Gameroom Junkies, Nate from Coast 2 Coast Pinball, Rob Craig from the Silverball Podcast and Charlie, KT, Squirrel, Bug and Bryan Kelly from Spooky Pinball.

The (Bug) Terminator shows up, everyone buys a can of cheese and we all discuss what it’s like to produce our respective shows and involve our families in the podcasts.  We revisit some of our favorite episodes and talk about the overall coverage of the world of Pinball – all while having as much fun as possible in the process!

Special thanks go to Shawn O’Shea for pictures and Martin Ayub (PinballNews.com) for pictures and contributing the panel audio!

Episode 15 – Happy Birfday, the 20 dollar word

September, 2014

Welcome to Episode #15 of the podcast – which is also our “1-year Anniversary” show!

There’s a lot of ground for us to cover on this show, but we start off with a bit of reflection on how our first year in the podcasting ‘bidness’ had gone and talk about all the fun times we’ve had, the new friends we’ve made and just how “hard” (podcasting *is* hard, mkay) putting together a show from scratch really wound up being!

Once we wipe the nostalgic tear away, we dive face-first into hobby updates.  Whitney makes a pinball confessional (that I’ve since unboxed since we recorded the show), discusses ‘Pinball on the road’ (cue the Charles Kuralt music anytime…) with a visit to the Seattle Pinball Museum and Brent discusses paying it forward, pinball-style, with a project that he lined up for friend of the show Steve Ridge and his son, Michael.  We also get an update on the Burgertime refurb that won our first ‘Put Brent to Work’ listener poll and talk about Open House at the Warehouse 2.0 coming up at the end of September, 2014 in Louisville, KY.

Episode 14 – Someone got a smoking deal…

August 2014

Brent and I return to the studio after several “shows on the road” as we settle back in front of the microphone and catch up on happenings since our last studio episode…which by my count is actually three episodes back… man… time does fly.

We recount the happenings from a few of our Cincinnati road trips as well as our closing thoughts on the 2014 edition of the Southern-Fried Gameroom Expo.  We also catch up on our latest acquisitions – which actually turned out to be far more than I think either of us expected -  and we read through a good amount of listener e-mail and feedback, as well as talk about some of the latest news and discuss some reproduction parts.  Keep the feedback coming as we really appreciate it and it helps the show tremendously!

Episode 13 – The Salter Files – Chapter 02

August 2014

This episode was recorded live on-location at “The Place, Retro Arcade” on June 28th, 2014.

Brent takes the show back on the road and sets up shop to cover a portion of the world-record attempt (and later success) of Estel Goffinet on his Kicker high score and marathon run.   We are fortunate enough to have John Salter sit back in for co-host duty (I still had only half a voice at that point, and join in via Skype for a portion of the show) and we also have David from PinballToppers.com sit in and talk about how he got into the hobby and what his future plans are for his business (some of which was discussed on the show are now coming to fruition – check his site!!)

Needless to say, I’m still “all-in” for a Super Zapper topper for my Tempest!

We hope you enjoy the lively discussion and insight into the marathon-setting process and the pinball topper business!

We’ll be back in the studio for episode 14 so until then, thanks for listening and GAME ON!
