March 2019

Hey everyone, while we’ve had a bit of an unplanned hiatus (we’ll be back for April) the podcasting machine rolls on and with it comes our livestream show from the 2019 Louisville Arcade Expo!  Sit in with us for almost 3 hours of great pop culture, movie and pinball discussion with all the sounds and entertainment from the Expo floor!

This show was recorded live (and streamed on our MixLR channel) on Friday night, March 1st 2019 and we are proud to present the following guests for the show (in order of appearance):

Thanks to all for the kind words of support – we’re looking forward to being back in the studio for April 2019!

77: The Day Late, Dollar Short Show

January 2019

Well, well, well – it had to finally happen.  We are a day late on show publishing and I wish we could blame it on border security, government shutdown or the polar vortex, but at the end of it all – it was a failure of our best friend (and arch nemesis): technology.  It takes some time to move around the GIGABYTES of unprocessed audio we make for each month’s show and by the time it lands at its final resting spot to become the MP3 we all know and love, our baritone has traversed its way from the moon and back (figuratively).  Somewhere over Albuquerque, some archive files bit the dust and we had to retry (and retry) before there was success.  But alas, we made it!!

This month we have not only the usual gameroom and hobby updates, but we also hear from a first-timer to the show – Corey Stupp.  Corey is the new face behind the Louisville Arcade Expo (and a developer at Stern Pinball) and gives us the low-down on everything we can expect from the 2019 show.  We also hear from our friends at Marco Specialities as we do some more floor and booth interviews from the 2018 Grand Ole Gameroom Expo.  We then spend some of Brent’s money on my favorite things – Nintendo parts!!  Oh – and a new CPS2 infinikey, joystick grommets and all kinds of necessities.  We give our best thoughts on the new Munsters Pinball from Stern and then make way for some feedback as well.

We may be a day late (and Brent is a dollar short) but we made it!  Thanks for everyone asking “hey – where are you guys?!?!”  Makes us feel loved.

76: The Zebco 33

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!

October 2018

It’s been a loooong 31 days since the last episode and we’ve had plenty of time to practice our signature moves on spending Brent’s money, white-washing gameroom updates and making half-educated attempts at industry and hobby news coverage.  Should that stop us this month?  WE SAY NO!

So in our best declaration of determination and comeuppance, we return for the October show and unfortunately there’s nothing spooky about it – at all.  However, we do have everything that you’ve come to know and love with the show as well as the following major topics:

  1. Flashlights
  2. ColorDMD
  3. Flashlights
  4. New Pinball announcements
  5. Flashlights
  6. Stern code updates
  7. Flashlights
  8. Spend Brent’s Money
  9. Flashlights
  10. Flashlights (just to round it out).

Yep – it’s arcade and pinball podcasting, BT style (and with some Grace added in to keep the guys on task).
