This is the first of 3 ‘special episodes’ that encompasses our coverage of the 2014 Louisville Arcade Expo.
This show was recorded Friday night, March 7th 2014 and includes live coverage from the expo floor, a daily recap of the show (with tons of banter, discussion and fun) and sit-in guest interviews from show participants. We catch up with Ed Lutz (interviewed in Episode 02), Geoff Schunerle (interviewed in Episode 03), local collector Jason Bradley and Travis Sims from Arcade Rescue 911. To wrap it all up, we even have a special visit from Brent’s niece as she sits in for a bit and gives us all the ‘expert’ view from the perspective that really matters.
We’ll also be releasing the Saturday night livestream show (with special guests John Trudeau, Preston Burt from Gameroom Junkies Arcade & Pinball Podcast and Phoebe Smith, more family members and friends of the show – just to name a few!) along with our special coverage of the John Trudeau and Python Anghelo discussion panel. Be sure to check back for those episodes to be posted soon!
Join in on the fun and relive the action of the expo! Brent and I proceed to talk ourselves hoarse over all the activity of the show, but it was a fantastic time and we look forward to bringing more live events to the show over time.
Let us know what you think – send us an e-mail (firstname.lastname@example.org) or leave us a voicemail at 470-2CALLBT!
Thanks for listening and GAME ON!

Hey everyone, we are back with a special ‘mini-episode’ this week in preparation for the upcoming Louisville Arcade Expo that’s taking place this upcoming weekend, March 7th – 9th, 2014.
Brent couldn’t get over to the mobile studio in time to get this episode ready to go, so I went to the bench and enlisted the help of my 8-year old daughter (Pumpkin) to sit in on this episode with me and we talk about the Expo from all kinds of angles – and from two very different sets of eyes. It’s amazing what sticks with the kiddos…
Besides the classic arcade and pinball action that everyone is ready for, we cover the upcoming events and seminar schedule, as well as our upcoming live stream events. We’ve got the schedule published below so you can refer back to it at any time.
All broadcasts will be available on our MixLR Radio feed – http://www.mixlr.com/brokentoken

We've also got a very special guest that is rumored to be sitting in with us, so check back for more details!
Brent, Kristy and I will also be manning our very own booth at the show, so stop by, say Hi, grab a picture with us and be kind and buy your very own ‘2014 Brokentoken Podcast T-shirt’ that will be making it’s ‘WORLD WIDE’ (lol) debut! Hey, it’s for a good cause and you’ll be supporting the show!
We’ll also be taking up donations for both Barry Oursler and Python Anghelo to help them offset some serious medical bills. 100% of the proceeds will make it to the respective GoFundMe campaigns for each person, so please consider donating for a very worthy cause and help our fellow man out and let them know that the classic gaming (especially Pinball) community cares!
We are looking forward to meeting everyone possible at the expo! Come on by and say Hi!
We are in the final countdown to the Louisville Arcade Expo taking place in Louisville this weekend. Many local (and some not-so-local) collectors, players and lovers of “all things retro gaming” are making final preparations to haul pinball machines, arcade games, classic consoles/computers and anyone else who is along for the ride and converge for the 3rd-annual LAX.
Despite the expo running for the entire weekend, there will be some pre-expo events, in case you are interested:
- Wednesday night (3/6/2013) –Pinball tournament is being held at Zanzabar!
- Thursday night (3/7/2013) – official ‘unloading’ at the expo – this is one of the best parts of the event, IMHO. A lot of the local collectors are onsite getting everything ready for the playing public. It’s a great time to come visit with the people who make the whole weekend a possibility. Of course, you have to contribute a game to participate here, so if you are planning on bringing something to the expo and have been on the fence, hopefully this will entice you a bit further!
The local media coverage of the expo has picked up steam, as well. Check out this article from Matt Frassica in the March 4th, 2013 Courier Journal – http://www.courier-journal.com/apps/pbcs.dll/article?AID=2013303040063&nclick_check=1 as it has a lot of good background info for this year’s expo and what to expect (and who will be there, as well!)
This year’s expo promises a lot and I know it will deliver. There is an entirely new floor plan, lots of vendor space and retro goodness everywhere. Be sure to keep abreast of the current game list as well… it will change from day-to-day and there is always a lot of walk-in ‘surprises’ as well.
Pack up the kids, throw on your best Nintendo t-shirt and we’ll see you at the expo!
Now that the lights, sounds and crowds of the 2012 Louisville Arcade Expo are behind us, this presents the perfect time to revisit for those who didn’t get to attend. There was so much going on this year, that it was kind of hard to take everything in and make sure that all aspects of the show were captured. Hopefully this summary will give a good recap of the overall experience and show just how much has changed from last year’s show.
