Welcome back for Episode #3 (it is the magic number, after all) of the podcast!
Brent and I (Whitney) sit down and talk A LOT about Pinball in this episode and we have a great time doing it. I promise we’ll get back to arcades in the next episode in an effort to stay as balanced as we can.
All that being said, we break down quite a few topics on the DeepDive segment and talk about upcoming holiday plans, talk through some current pinball happenings, our respective projects, lament the saga behind show notes and Brent’s trusty Mead notebook. Add to all of that and we even have our first ‘remote’ interview for the show!
Louisville, KY collector Geoff Schunerle was nice enough to invite me into his home to sit down and talk about his collection, memories of the arcade and why this hobby is so special to him and his brother. Geoff was a great interview and we had fun time talking and I think that will come through in what you hear.
We also haggle through the almost-endless debate on original vs. remake machines with the news of the re-release of Medieval Madness…. let the insanity ensue!
Welcome back to episode #2 of the podcast! In this episode, we cover a wide range of topics – everything from classic board games, to pinball mods to moving games to ratchet straps (ah… ratchet straps) to accidentally trashing a classic *and* we have our first ‘in-studio’ interview! We’re grateful to have Ed Lutz, owner of Arcade Odyssey in Louisville, KY – a local arcade and pinball repair business – sit in for a discussion that spans the years and we get to learn a lot about the man behind the ‘elutz’ handle.
In this first episode of the podcast, join co-hosts Brent and Whitney as we introduce ourselves, talk about our retro-gaming chops and discuss some of our early arcade experiences. All this, as well as some talk about our favorite arcade from BITD (Back In The Day) as well as our personal favorite arcade game of all time – find out what classic goodness makes us tick!
We also discuss some of the background for the show, how we intend to structure the show going forward and discuss some potential future plans.

With ‘version 3’ of the Louisville Arcade Expo now in the history books, we’ve all had a bit of time to get the games back home, unpack/unwind and reflect on what this years’ expo was all about.
The expo is definitely ‘growing up’. There’s a lot of mechanics that have to happen behind the scenes, and the way that the expo is organized and executed on is showing a lot of benefit from how everyone involved is doing such a good job on ensuring ongoing quality while increasing show content at the same time. All that being said, this year was definitely a ‘year of firsts’ for our retro scene….
I wanted to pass this along, as my good friends Preston & Patrick at the Gameroom Junkies Arcade and Pinball Podcast are working on a brand-new gaming expo that is set to debut in Atlanta in April 2014. Despite that being a year out, time flies and these events take planning and a lot of work to execute. So, with that, take a look at the following press release from the Southern-Fried Gameroom Expo and participate in the survey to help shape the content of the expo. I’ll report more as details continue to emerge….
