August 2015

Are you ready for another 4.5 hours of “arcade goodness”?  Not really?!?!  Ready or not, episode 32 is on the airwaves helping us to wrap up August 2015 in the grandest of style.

We take to the microphones where Brent talks some pinball and discusses some updates on his High Speed and begins the process of moving the Big Guns on down the line.  Whitney does nothing but talk about what he wishes he had done, but does get some play time at the Seattle Pinball Museum and meets up with some fellow listeners during his travels.

We also take this month’s interview segment and mix it up a bit – instead of talking about games, parts or collecting, we take the chance to give back a bit by delving into philanthropy in gaming and hear about those who use the hobby as a way to improve the lives of others.  We discuss the efforts of such great people as David Paul (Life Under Glass) and Joe Newhart (PinballStar Amusements) as well as hear from Dan Spolar (Project Pinball), Pat Young (Hero for the Heart) and Joshua Ahearn (Extra Life) as part of our coverage at the Southern-Fried Gameroom Expo 2015.

Last but not least, we cover off on the usual updates, listener mail and even devote way more time than necessary to topics like the crappy WG4500, repair bench monitors, new reproduction parts out this month and meeting Hulk Hogan.

Yep – THE HULKSTER!
