YDKF Episode 152: Star Wars Video Games

In this episode I talk a bit about my visit to Rancho Obi-Wan before jumping in with lasers blazing and talking about as many Star Wars video games, computer games, arcade games and pinball games as a guy can in 75 minutes. I don’t cover ‘em all, but it turns out there are hundreds of them so I did my best.

YDKF Episode 150: The Creek

The opposite of last week’s show, this week’s episode of You Don’t Know Flack is definitely non-technical. “The Creek” was out behind my house and I spent a lot of time playing and collecting stories out there.

YDKF Episode 149: Networks

I’m back at home and back on the mic with another episode of You Don’t Know Flack. This episode is about the exciting world of computer networks! Okay, so maybe it doesn’t sound that exciting, but give it a chance! This episode’s “loading time” is longer than usual as I discuss my experience with a network-related boot camp I recently attended.

YDKF Episode 148: Modchips

Welcome back, my friends, to the show that never ends. After a slight delay, You Don’t Know Flack is back with an episode all about modchips, those devious little devices that allow you to do naughty things with your videogame consoles. In this episode I talk about the history of modchips, from the original Sony PlayStation to the last generation of consoles.

YDKF Episode 147: Merry Christmas and Happy New Year

Another year, another relaunch. On episode 147 of You Don’t Know Flack I bring us into the new year by reflecting back on past holiday traditions and comparing them to my family’s current traditions. After a relaxing December I’m hoping to shake the ring rust off with this episode and get things back on track. In 2014 I’ll be alternating podcasts, with You Don’t Know Flack one week and Sprite Castle the following week.

YDKF Episode 146: Kong Off 3

Getting back to arcade games, I spent November 15-17 in Denver, Colorado hanging around the 1UP Arcade attending the 3rd Annual Kong Off Tournament. Billy Mitchell, Steve Wiebe, Walter Day and the 32 best Donkey Kong players in the world attended the tournament. In this episode of You Don’t Know Flack I talk about my time spent at the Kong Off 3 and some of the other classic arcades I visited in and around Denver!
