JUNE 2020

With continued unrest all around us and uncertainty at almost every corner, there are two things that we can count on to make the world a smaller (and better) place – our children and inclusivity.  Both of those themes are front-and-center in this episode as we spend some good time listening to the “kids of the show” (Grace Roberts & Gareth Milwood) as they continue to grow up (way too fast, btw) and we get some fantastic insight from Elizabeth Gieske into women in pinball with a heavy focus on competitive play and how inclusive the hobby is and what works well and what could still use improvement.

We’re also visited by friends of the show David Corrigan and Dan DeBusschere as they sat in with us to talk gaming and their current projects.  A good time was had by all.

It’s our hopes that if you weren’t able to join the live broadcast (or if you want to re-listen) then this (and the previous Friday livestream show at ep. 89) will bring some cheer to your shelter-in-place regiment – whatever that may look like.

Wherever you are in the world – we thank you for listening and hope that you and your family are safe and continue to be in good health.

Enjoy the show!

89: LAX 2020 Livestream–Friday March 6

April 2020

It’s amazing what 6 weeks will do from a “perspective” perspective…when this was recorded, the nationwide COVID-19 response hadn’t even kicked into gear and we had no idea what was in store for us.

It’s our hopes that if you weren’t able to join the live broadcast (or if you want to re-listen) then this (and the upcoming Saturday livestream show) will bring some cheer to your shelter-in-place regiment – whatever that may look like.

On this episode, we had the distinct good fortune of getting the following to sit down in front of the mic with us at expo:

  • Jeremy Fleitz (where we talked a LOT of Tron pinball)
  • Corey Sims (of RecBar 502/812)
  • Daniel Pesina and his manager Luis (this conversation went almost two hours and we talked a LOT about Mortal Kombat!!)

Wherever you are in the world – we thank you for listening and hope that you and your family are safe and continue to be in good health.

Enjoy the show!

87: He’s On Fire

January 2020

First month of the new year and the (self-imposed) heat is on.  Good thing we’ve got this guy (Jeremy) to help us out - https://thehardtimes.net/harddrive/scientists-discover-earth-is-heating-up-due-to-some-guy-hitting-consecutive-shots-in-nba-jam/

The news of NBA Jam coming to the Arcade 1UP is enough to kick off the month right.  We get down to business with our gameroom updates (Brent has been tandem working on two Getaways and he’s going to build a Pac-Man roller coaster, while Whitney has been putting up gameroom lighting and installed a metal apron and art blades in his AC/DC) and then open the studio for “double shock power” when Corey Stup and Joe Stith from the Louisville Arcade Expo sit in with us to talk about the upcoming 10th anniversary of the show.

There’s a lot of Mortal Kombat love going around this year, so be sure to check out their website for all the show details and to make sure you lock in your early-bird ticket for the weekend!

We then round out the show with what can only be summed up as “Check the cornfield, Rose” (lots of references going around this month…) when J. Patrick of Podcasserole and Cale Hernandez of Marco Specialties sit in with us for the “Podcasting After Dark” panel from the 2019 Grand Ole Gameroom Expo.  So much pop culture, so much mind reading and a magic trick to boot.  We’ll park that right there.

Also – don’t forget to enter our Superman ’78 translite giveaway sponsored by LitFrames!  Full contest details are available here - https://www.brokentoken.com/contests/win-a-superman-78-translite-courtesy-of-litframes/

77: The Day Late, Dollar Short Show

January 2019

Well, well, well – it had to finally happen.  We are a day late on show publishing and I wish we could blame it on border security, government shutdown or the polar vortex, but at the end of it all – it was a failure of our best friend (and arch nemesis): technology.  It takes some time to move around the GIGABYTES of unprocessed audio we make for each month’s show and by the time it lands at its final resting spot to become the MP3 we all know and love, our baritone has traversed its way from the moon and back (figuratively).  Somewhere over Albuquerque, some archive files bit the dust and we had to retry (and retry) before there was success.  But alas, we made it!!

This month we have not only the usual gameroom and hobby updates, but we also hear from a first-timer to the show – Corey Stupp.  Corey is the new face behind the Louisville Arcade Expo (and a developer at Stern Pinball) and gives us the low-down on everything we can expect from the 2019 show.  We also hear from our friends at Marco Specialities as we do some more floor and booth interviews from the 2018 Grand Ole Gameroom Expo.  We then spend some of Brent’s money on my favorite things – Nintendo parts!!  Oh – and a new CPS2 infinikey, joystick grommets and all kinds of necessities.  We give our best thoughts on the new Munsters Pinball from Stern and then make way for some feedback as well.

We may be a day late (and Brent is a dollar short) but we made it!  Thanks for everyone asking “hey – where are you guys?!?!”  Makes us feel loved.
