58: Tough as nails but ugly as sin


August 2017

Brent threw down the gauntlet with this episode – if you can find an uglier patch of carpet than what he has in his workroom, then you win absolutely nothing – nada, zip, zilch…basically just bragging rights on the fact that you’re keeping it real while working on your games.

We have the usual gameroom and hobby updates, discuss Fandom Fest, collecting Funco Pops (we even open a few on air) discuss the good/bad on various multimeters, spend some of Brent’s money and discuss a topic that we thought would never be covered on an arcade/pinball podcast – the arrest of legendary pinball designer John Trudeau.  All this and feedback too – August 2017 goes down in the history books.

Here’s how the timings for the show break down:

* Segment 0 – 00:00 – 06:45 – The arrest of John Trudeau
* Segment 1 – 06:55 – 01:55 – Monthly updates and goings on
* Segment 2 – 01:55 – 03:02 – Multi-meter discussion and “Spend Brent’s Money”
* Segment 3 – 03:03 – 03:37 – TNA Pinball, News and Feedback
* Segment 4 – 03:38 – Outtakes and stuff…
