April 1st is a day of jokes, gags and fun so Brent and I decided it would be the perfect opportunity to poke some fun at ourselves and compile a collection of outtakes from previous episodes, as well as some bloopers from some of our past live shows!
It takes a lot of mistakes to make up a show episode (trust us, we generate tons of them every month) but we picked some of the best for everyone to enjoy and thought it neat to put out a mini-show between regular episodes.
We trust you’ll get a few laughs at our expense (as it should be) and enjoy the show. We’re holding a few more back (hey, we wanna put together a 2x show for next year!) so rest assured there’s more then enough tomfoolery (#20dollarword) to go around!
This is the first of a whopping five special episodes that encompass our live coverage of the 2015 Louisville Arcade Expo!
This show was recorded live on Friday night, March 6th, 2015 and includes live coverage from the show floor and several sit-in guest interviews from friends of the show that were in attendance.
*whew*… we just barely made it in under the “short month” deadline for this episode.. weather here in KY has been nothing short of “tough” the past several weeks and getting together to record has been a bit of a challenge due to that. BUT – we found a decent day break in the -10 temperatures and took advantage of it and had a blast putting together this month’s show.

We’re ringing in 2015 with a bit of flair by way of some updates to the podcast, and we trust that everyone is as excited as we are for some of the changes we’re making for the New Year!
With the Holidays now squarely behind us, we take some time to revisit the year for a bit and also cover what we’ve been up to for the past month – which turned into far, far more than either of us had originally thought. I’ve (Whitney) been hammering on the ZooKeeper resto project and cabbaging as many tube swap candidates that I can find. Brent on the other hand has been BUSY.. so much so that I thought we’d have to split his updates out into a separate episode! Speaking of, he goes on the road for our first interview – New Years Eve @ The Place, Retro Arcade and not only talks with owner Cary Chaney and world-record holder Estel Goffinet (and laments why arcade games just don’t seem to like him very much) as well as some of the most important (and often under-appreciated) people in the hobby – Arcade Wives!
In an interview double-header, we sit down with the guys from the Louisville Arcade Expo and cover what to expect from this years’ show as well as catch up on general happenings in the show circuit and discuss the special guests (David Crane and more!) that will be making an appearance in Louisville in March 2015.
We’re kicking off the new year in a massive way by sitting in with legendary Pinball designer, John Trudeau, and spending an evening discussing Stern’s newest title – Wrestlemania!
John gives us a candid and unplugged discussion around the back-story for the title while we talk game […]
Merry Christmas everyone!
This episode sees us amazing even ourselves on the sheer amount of content we can pack into a single month’s episode. In short, this month’s show should easily outlast even the longest of ‘Griswold-esque’ family get-togethers and equal about 2.7 stocking stuffers!
We’re back in the studio to recap all things related to Pinball Expo 2014 where we run through all the announcements, give our thoughts on everything we saw and discuss the most notable parts of the show. We then discuss what we’ve been working on in-between travels over the past month and Brent recaps his progress on the Burgertime Project (the winner in the “Put Brent to work” poll) while Whitney finally (*finally*) gets one of the games he’s been after for years (a grail?!?!?) – Zoo Keeper!
We are fortunate this month, as we have two interviews – our first guest is Andrew Heighway of Heighway Pinball and we talk about all things related to Full Throttle and get some info on the upcoming Alien Pinball. Gerry Stellenberg of Multimorphic Pinball sits down with Brent for our second interview and discusses the P3 pinball platform while we get some scoop on Lexi Lightspeed and Cosmic Cart Racing!
We announce the winner of our first listener contest, play some voicemail, respond to some feedback and talk a bit about another upcoming Chicago trip where we go back to Stern for a factory tour!
All this and more and Brent finally gives us the answer to the question we never asked – purple. My answer was 42, so we had to come up with a compromise. ;) I don’t think Brent ever found his dancing shoes…
This is part 3 of 3 of our coverage from Pinball Expo 2014. This episode is a recording of our livestream show on Saturday, October 18th, where we recap the weekend and talk through everything we’ve seen and what really sticks as we wrap up the expo. We talk about several of the more unique games at Expo, we give EM’s some love and talk about the afternoon’s autograph session (where Whitney goes all fanboi for Steve Richie).
We also spend some time talking to Patrick Wall from Gameroom Junkies to get his input on the expo as well as listener Shawn O’Shea – who gifted us with some awesome #FAARPARR shirts during the podcasters panel and was a big help to us over the weekend.
This is part 2 of 3 of our coverage from Pinball Expo 2014. This episode is a recording of the panel discussion we participated in entitled “Covering the World of Pinball, One Podcast at a Time”, held on Saturday October 18th. This was a moderated discussion led by Expo organizer David Fix.
This is part 1 of 3 of our coverage from Pinball Expo 2014. This episode is a recording of our livestream show on Friday, October 17th. We take to the show floor and discuss the sights and sounds and score some great interviews in the process.
