Episode 04 – You say Firepower, I say Firepower


December 2013

We’re back with Episode #04 and with it, Brent and I saddle up for lots of great talk on current happenings in the arcade and pinball scene, as well as cover what we’ve been up to over the past month.

In addition to catching up on the happenings since Episode #03, we talk about a host of technical topics (Brent covers broken neck board repair, and I dig into high-score save kits) as well as my very own ‘Project FlipFlop’ that I started last month – it’s a 2x attempt at ramping up my Nintendo row at the home game room.    Brent gives us some lowdown on his arcade party schedule and the Dirty Harry pinball he finished shopping and moved into his game room.

We’re fortunate to have not one, but two in-studio guests this month.  Brothers Matt & Jeremy Fleitz of the Louisville Arcade Expo sit in with us and give us a behind-the-scenes view of what goes on to make the show possible each year, as well as a few teasers for what (and who) we can expect to see at the 2014 show!

This is a good problem to have (or so I’m told), but Brent and I found ourselves having to hold some topics for next episode, or else we would have had an 8-hour show this month!  Buckle up (Mustang reference) and get ready for another jam-packed show as we pronounce FirePower no less than six different ways – and think they all sound right!

Oh – listen to “all” of the show.  The first round of outtakes are now live. 😉

Here’s how the episode breaks down… get that pause button ready for the Christmas gift that keeps on giving!
