72: Chrome won’t get you home
Way better… that’s the best phrase we know of to sum up August vs. July 2018. No plumbing issues (that we know of), no home repairs and no major calamities befell the podcast crew this month, so we were able to focus on what we do best – POSING as knowledgeable pinball and arcade hobbyists. With that poser status comes a lot of a poser updates on everything from Brent’s new 3D printer, his thermoforming machine build, a massive parts haul and more. Whitney found a few fluke pods and is still posing as a pinballer while he awaits word on his TNA. We also catch up on a mini-review of the Hyperkin RetroN77 and pose as big spenders with Brent’s money this month (seriously – check out the list) before chatting up the new Stern Pinball Deadpool. We top all this with a BOATLOAD (no posing required this month) of listener feedback that turned out to be as much (or more) fun than the actual show itself.
Like the old saying goes “chrome won’t get you home” but we sure pretended it did.
