The Brokentoken podcast crew will be streaming live coverage from the floor of Pinball Expo!
Join Whitney and Brent (and anyone else we can get on mic) to bring you news of the day, commentary, and reactions from the show.
There’s going to be quite the selection of industry leaders, designers and manufacturers in attendance, so it’s hard to know who will show up!
Here’s the schedule:
- Friday 10/17 8:30 PM Central, 9:30 PM Eastern.
- Saturday 10/18 5:30 PM Central, 6:30 PM Eastern.

We’ll also be recording the Saturday morning podcaster’s panel discussion and will be releasing that shortly after the show!

Thanks for listening and GAME ON!
Brent and I return to the studio after several “shows on the road” as we settle back in front of the microphone and catch up on happenings since our last studio episode…which by my count is actually three episodes back… man… time does fly.
We recount the happenings from a few of our Cincinnati road trips as well as our closing thoughts on the 2014 edition of the Southern-Fried Gameroom Expo. We also catch up on our latest acquisitions – which actually turned out to be far more than I think either of us expected - and we read through a good amount of listener e-mail and feedback, as well as talk about some of the latest news and discuss some reproduction parts. Keep the feedback coming as we really appreciate it and it helps the show tremendously!
In this episode of the podcast, Brent and Whitney are in Atlanta, GA for the Southern-Fried Gameroom Expo and have the distinct privilege of hosting a panel discussion on the topic of what it takes to create custom arcade games and pinball titles in today’s gaming industry.
We delve into game development. how to get published and make a name for yourself in this scene, as well as discuss Pinball development, Pinball 2000 modifications and how brand new games (and transforming existing games into new ones) gets done. You’ll also hear the world debut of the breaking news – which was live at the expo – on the upcoming “Python’s Pinball Circus” “re-envisioning” (as in being made the way Python Anghelo wanted) that is being done by Circus Maximus!
This is the third of three ‘special episodes’ that encompasses (and concludes) our coverage of the 2014 Louisville Arcade Expo and was recorded Saturday afternoon, March 8th 2014.
This seminar comprises two parts:
- The first portion is John engaging with the audience discussing the highlights of his career and the projects that he has worked on in the past. We hear about his games and time at Premier, Midway, Williams and Stern with John taking audience questions.
- In the second portion, we are then fortunate enough to get Python Anghelo online via Skype for what is an unforgettable interview and story-telling session between both legends of the industry.
What makes this interview and seminar session so special is that this event turned out being the last public appearance by Python before his passing on April 9th, 2014.
We’ve also included the video of the session below as well. John’s first segment of the seminar runs for ~41 minutes with Python and John together for the balance of the video.
We hope that you enjoy this very special production. We here at BrokenToken want to extend our sympathies to the friends and family of Python and we also thank John Trudeau for stewarding this wonderful opportunity.
As I’ve heard Python say several times before – “Much Pinball Love”.
RIP and Godspeed.
