December 2018

It’s Christmas and New Years all squashed together and what better way to give ‘ol 2018 the proper boot than to tell a bunch of arcade-related fishing stories (hence the title tie-in…get it?!?!?) and do absolutely no reflection whatsoever on the past year.  Yep – we stick to the script and will get all gushy-eyed in January as we look forward to 2019!

Speaking of the script… in checking out the show notes (which we have to do, because we cannot remember what we talk about) it looks like we cover off on the following:

  • Brent’s shopping of his Star Wars Ep1 and musings on his new Frogger
  • The LM399 IC tester and building a “new” Sega Dreamcast
  • Whitney’s trip to Chicago with the guys from the 10 Pence Arcade Podcast
  • Update on TNA and some stumbles with it
  • Update on home/collection inventory management and some listener suggestions
  • An interview with Larry Kitchen from Flip’N Out
  • A review on optical gun games
  • Spending Brents money on JAMMA testers and Punch Out adapters
  • AND… news, listener feedback and our normal (boatload) of mistakes and future corrections!

Best of the Yuletide spoodlings to you and yours from Brent and Whitney!

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!
