Ah August….we barely knew ye.

There’s so much that transpired this past month, it’s hard to get it all in a blog post – fortunately for us (and to everyone else’s dismay) we have 3 hours and 20 minutes to tell all you fine listeners all about it!  If the math is right, that should be about 1.7 O’Shea Commutes.  #WINNING

All joking aside, we’ve got a pretty jam-packed episode for everyone – we discuss the latest play field clear coat issues that has taken the pinball internets by storm over the past couple of weeks and dovetail that with our thoughts on Jurassic Park and Star Wars “Pin”, both announced and released from Stern over the past 30-45 days.  We also discuss a really neat offering for anyone with a Cinematronic arcade machine (Star Castle, Armor Attack!, etc.) and talk about a recent trip to Brunswick, GA where Whitney visited the “Pinball Palace” (and Planet Fun) over family vacation.  Brent gives us a good education on video and pinball optos and we respond to a challenge issued forth by our friends at Pod Casserole.  We also cover off on our monthly updates where Whitney picks up a “spare” Robotron and Brent gives us his thoughts on both Cosmic Carnival and Black Knight: Sword of Rage (spoiler: Whitney loves it, Brent doesn’t… it’s like Donkey Kong all over again).

Oh…. don’t miss Brent’s “Facebook Rant” segment this month… it was so much fun that we named the episode after it!
