    Ep. 13: Post Pinburgh Decompression (Part Two)

    Episode 13 of The Meltdown Pinball Podcast is a continuation of the last episode, right where we left off. This is part two of our collaboration. as the Post Pinburgh Decompression continues.

    Rejoin Duncan McFarlane, Luke Cervi, Jack Danger, Kikasaurus Rex and me as we continue to break down Pinburgh and other pinball stuff.

    There's still no synopsis here ... but, there were still many, and large quantities of beverages involved in the making of this production as well (see cover photo).

    Ep. 12: Post Pinburgh Decompression (Part One)

    Ep. 12: Post Pinburgh Decompression (Part One)

    Episode 12 of The Meltdown Pinball Podcast is a group of pinballers going through ... not Post Pinburgh Depression as stated in the New Pinball Dictionary, but Post Pinburgh Decompression.

    This is part one of our collaboration, and I decided to separate it at a very appropriate point (you'll see .. or rather you'll hear). Part two (episode 13) will be released soon and will pick up right where part one leaves off.

    Join Duncan McFarlane, Luke Cervi, Jack Danger, Kikasaurus Rex and me as we break down Pinburgh and many other pinball things as they come up. This was Duncan's first Pinburgh competition, and ReplayFX was Luke's first-ever pinball show so I was happy to have their perspectives on ReplayFX, Pinburgh, and pinball in general.

    Although we were decompressing after Pinburgh ended, most of the discussion is "evergreen" as we cover more topics than just ReplayFX.

    There's no synopsis here ... Well, I'll add this: Many, and large quantities of beverages were involved in the making of this production (see cover photo).

    Also joining us will be 2019 INDISC Grand Champion Colin Urban, Tournament Director Jim Belsito and Daniel Spolar of Project Pinball.

1825 is Brilliant

Great show, different perspective

Bottom of the barrel

Recording in apparent drunken and/or high states... uninteresting gibberish... this podcast is about as bad as it gets.

Total Waste of Time - Utterly Useless

Another podcast about nothing. Apple needs to have a new category for podcasts that contribute nothing to conversations about topics. Over 500,000 podcasts on the store, and I happen to listen to one of the worst.
