61: We Are Professional Grade
Thanksgiving (and November as a whole) – it seems to come and go in a flash – whether we like it or not. Despite the pace, it’s always important to take the time and reflect on what to be thankful for this year. For us, it’s being back home safe and sound (Whitney) to get back in the studio and for not blowing out a Christmas budget (Brent) by spending too much money – and Whitney invents yet another new word! Did we say we are professionals?
So true to form, what do we do instead of spending all of Brent’s money? We run through our monthly updates, talk about what’s coming up with the Holidays, Whitney recaps his UK trip for the Sky Skipper reveal at the Arcade Club and we discuss our most excellent weekend at the Grand Ole Gameroom Expo. We chat a bit about the upcoming Pole Position FPGA board, Guardians of the Galaxy Pinball and the Mike Doyle multi-Pac kit (Brent likes Pac-Man instead of Donkey Kong…go figure).
As a special treat, we also have a bonus segment we recorded with Adam and JP of Podcasserole while at the Expo. It was a ton of fun, as we talked arcade games, movies, all kinds of pop-culture references, and learned quite a bit about Back to the Future, as well.
Can’t no Tryptophan keep us podcasters down!
