November 2018

The feedback on the plumbing podcast was so strong, that we felt the need to butcher the house in the name of the show and bring you EVEN MORE PLUMBING TALK!

It’s true – you wanted more plumbing, you get more plumbing!  Oh – we also managed to squeeze in a few things arcade and pinball related… you know…to pay the bills and all.  This month we cover off on the following topics:

  • Star Wars Ep. 1 shop-out
  • Brent buys a Fluke 9010a and he *finally* gets a Frogger!
  • IC testers
  • Louisville Super Con
  • Thanksgiving recaps (MO TURKEY, PLEASE!!)
  • Whitney’s TNA powdercoating and picking up a Time Pilot
  • Our visit to the Grand Ole Gameroom Expo and a quick interview with show organizer David Corrigan
  • News, Stern code updates and listener feedback

and last, but certainly not least – our panel interview with Marco and Stern where we talk with Cale Hernandez (Marco), Rachel Bess (Marco/the Electric Bat Arcade), Paul Mandeltort (Marco) and Mike Vinikour (Stern) about the history of the Pinball parts business, how Marco runs the largest Pinball parts resource on the planet and what it’s like to partner with Stern to ensure we all have loads of brand new games to play at shows (and how Mike keeps them up and running for us all to enjoy).

It’s a recap roundup and a Pex patch to boot!

57: They Went Straight to Plaid!

July 2017

Yep – we admit it – we go “straight to plaid” in this months’ episode.  We tried REAL HARD LIKE to not let the discussion around Stern’s new Star Wars Pinball capitalize the episode, but we couldn’t help ourselves.  We analyze it from up one side and down the other and still net a solid zero at the very end of it all.  Fortunately we have “Total Nuclear Annihilation” on the horizon and that promises to save the day – in more way than one.

So, on with what promises to be a really fun show.  We work through our monthly updates, as Brent just completed a pretty large group buyout on some killer titles (and a lot of PC10 carts, as well).  He picks up his Jurassic Park and lays in a total surprise game pickup as well. Whitney discusses the next few chapters in the Sky Skipper Project and discusses some cabinet swaps he’s got going on.

We cover off on a small soldering Q&A, review some hardware and for the first time in a few months we spend even more of Brent’s money.  All this, a “Nip-It” alert to end all alerts, and some feedback as well!
