87: He’s On Fire


January 2020

First month of the new year and the (self-imposed) heat is on.  Good thing we’ve got this guy (Jeremy) to help us out – https://thehardtimes.net/harddrive/scientists-discover-earth-is-heating-up-due-to-some-guy-hitting-consecutive-shots-in-nba-jam/

The news of NBA Jam coming to the Arcade 1UP is enough to kick off the month right.  We get down to business with our gameroom updates (Brent has been tandem working on two Getaways and he’s going to build a Pac-Man roller coaster, while Whitney has been putting up gameroom lighting and installed a metal apron and art blades in his AC/DC) and then open the studio for “double shock power” when Corey Stup and Joe Stith from the Louisville Arcade Expo sit in with us to talk about the upcoming 10th anniversary of the show.

There’s a lot of Mortal Kombat love going around this year, so be sure to check out their website for all the show details and to make sure you lock in your early-bird ticket for the weekend!

We then round out the show with what can only be summed up as “Check the cornfield, Rose” (lots of references going around this month…) when J. Patrick of Podcasserole and Cale Hernandez of Marco Specialties sit in with us for the “Podcasting After Dark” panel from the 2019 Grand Ole Gameroom Expo.  So much pop culture, so much mind reading and a magic trick to boot.  We’ll park that right there.
