Brokentoken Classic Arcade and Pinball Podcast

Join co-hosts Brent and Whitney as they share a ‘southern view’ (and some definite drawl) on the vibrant hobby of collecting, restoring and playing the arcade and pinball classics from the late 70’s to today. The podcast covers everything from the golden age of arcade gaming to the newest pinball titles currently hitting the streets and everything in between. Add in technical talk segments, collecting and restoration stories, interviews and sit-in guests as well as game room updates, forum news, listener mail and twitter questions (with the occasional live streams) and you’ve got a couple hours of your life you’ll never get back! GAME ON!

108: The David Corrigan Experience
Let's call this one the "After Summer Hiatus 2022 show" :) We're back in the studio after a rather impromptu break over the Summer and catching up on life, projects, more life and toss in some arcade and pinball talk along the way.  As a bonus, we have a virtual sit-in with David Corrigan, owner/organizer of the Music City Multi Con, as he takes us through all the highlights of the 2022 version of the expo, taking place Oct. 28-30th, right outside of Nashville, TN.  We'll be there conducting some panels, playing pinball, cruising the vendor booths and having an all-around great time - we hope to see you there!

107: Canned Heat
Let's call this one the "Before Summer 2022 Hiatus show" :) Yep, we admit it - the summer got away from us and we didn't get this episode out nearly as quickly as intended.  This one has been "in the can" for a couple of months, and we'll let you decide if we brought any heat... (insert wah wah sound here).  We cover a host of topics from microscopes to power supplies to Rally-X and Toy Story 4 from JJP. Even though the pinball reveal is old news at this point, I don't think our opinions are off the mark today, so give us a grade! The post 107: Canned Heat first appeared on Brokentoken.com.
