Pinball and video games. We're a mixed gaming podcast, but pinball and video games are our bread and butter, and our two permanent segments. Pinball generally receives the most attention of the two. We also, on occasion, cover other types of gaming (namely tabletop games such as RPGs and card games). We aren't known as eclectic for nothing!

My favorite podcast

I’ve been listening to every episode starting from the beginning. Even years later, the old episodes are informative and entertaining.

I like hearing Dennis and Tony talk about all of the boutiques and start-ups that have tried (and mostly failed) to make pinball machines. They take the time to research each topic and Dennis is good at giving a very listenable synopsis of all of the legal documents involved in the crazy antics of these companies.

It’s fun to hear their first impressions of each game as they are announced and then the follow up after they’ve played each game. They had such high hopes for Rob Zombie and those hoped were completely dashed a few episodes later.

At first I had intended to only listen to the pinball portion of the podcast, which is always after their opening intros, but I often find myself listening all the way through the video game section because it is just as interesting.

There are also some fantastic guest-hosts and one of the most insane interviews I’ve ever heard in the “Deeproot Interview” episode. I can’t believe how calm Dennis stayed as the owner of Deeproot was giving some very bold, weird, and sometimes insulting (to other people in the industry) answers to Dennis’ very well chosen questions.

I would recommend this podcast to everyone. It’s definitely worth a listen!

Pinball Galore (and Video Games)

Most of the episode time seems devoted to pinball (varies of course, but maybe 70% on average? A lot). A solid focus on key pinball news and more conceptual discussions. Dives into the more serious/concerning pinball hobby aspects (including breaking down legal happenings on failed projects and challenges faced by manufacturers). Video games is some news, but more discussion of whatever games the hosts are currently playing. Very consistent release schedule.

Varied and knowledgable

I also came to find the show because of pinball, but enjoyed the fact that they jump to video games and tabletop games too. It's nice that they limit off-topic talk, and provide links to topics in their show notes. A fun, clean show and easy to recommend.
