64: Wiggle Your Vectors




February 2018

I’ll just park that show title right here, and you can thank Brent for that one!  Even though February is always a hectic month for us (getting ready for the Louisville Arcade Expo) and such, we didn’t skimp on the free entertainment this month and managed to cram out 3 hours of shop talk on vector HV cages (hence the show title), a DIY Z80 pod for your Fluke 9010 tester, the absolute best IC puller known to man and a multi-Scramble kit that had Brent spending his own money faster than Whitney can – and that’s some trick.  We also give the Pins their due and pay some respect to the fantastic PAPA tutorials and the good work done by Bowen Kerins and his team.

Also, we’d like to give a special shout-out to Scott Danesi ( as he has graciously allowed us to use his MOST EXCELLENT music as the new official soundtrack for the podcast.  Yep – we are now officially almost as cool as Total Nuclear Annihilation.



63: I have my Bachelor’s in Ham



January 2018

Ah…winter – we want you gone.

The cold gets so tiring, that we are left with not much to do other than muse on pork and pork-related products.  Instead of waxing on about bacon, it’s really time to get back to projects, restoring some games and spending Brent’s money on absolutely everything in sight.  Although the weather isn’t cooperating, we aren’t letting that stop us from another great show and 3.5 hours talking shop on arcade and pinball.  This month, we gear up for the Louisville Arcade Expo and Jeremy Fleitz sits in with us as we learn what to expect from the 2018 version of the show.  We talk fixing Pole Positions – and the FPGA multiboard status, swapping William’s power supplies for modern replacements, Vectrex games, whole-house surge protection and everything under the sun regarding Total Nuclear Annihilation. All up, a pretty dyslexic, but totally fun show!

Oh yeah – Brent wants an Iron Maiden.  Come on Stern!!


54: Two Tacos and a Cigar



April 2017

Yep, you read that right.  This month’s show is best described as a fine ‘sit me back’ with your favorite smoking jacket and two of the finest tacos the Border has to offer.  We roll back into the studio and recap our thoughts on the Louisville Arcade Expo, catch up on the happenings over both March *AND* April, get back into the swing of Spending Brent’s Money (shameless plug here…we racked up over a $500 bill EASY this month) and were delighted to feature a guest we’ve been wanting to have on the show for months now: Jimmy Litsey – BITD classic arcade operator of yore and man, does he have some cool stories to tell.  As always we plow through a ton of great and fun feedback and some industry news as well.

Oh yeah – the best part is always at the end, so be sure to stay through the credits!
