Simply the BEST!!!

For more than a year I used to listen to EVERY pinball podcast I could find, and there are MANY, now I only listen to two...and this is hands down my favorite!

TrueOpinionated ,

Excellent Show!

These guys are fantastic… really fun to listen to… their no controversy, fun-loving approach, vast knowledge, and true love of the silverball easily make this the best pinball podcast around. C2C is a close second... But PInheadz has proven to be an absolutely amazing show.

A+ stuff

Fabulous show, extremely high quality

This is by far my favorite podcast. These guys know a ton about pinball and have a great way of looking at things. One of my favorite things about the show is that they cover repairs and issues they have had or fixed. Tech talk is very hard to find these days. I do wish they recorded more often, as they are the best.
