    Pinball podcasts

    Members sometimes post about pinball related podcasts on here but I don't think there is a list of known podcasts. I'm talking about real pinball as well as virtual so not just the Farsight interviews mentioned in another thread.

    Here are the pinball podcasts that I have come across, please add to the thread if you know of others and I'll update the list;


    Pinball Podcasts

    BlahCade Podcast - From a few of our very own forum members so it deserves to go right to the top of the list! . Proving to be well worth a listen whether you're into virtual or real pinball. Well done guys.

    The Pinheadz Pinball Podcast - iTunes - RSS - Facebook
    Pinball podcast from Australia, very professionally done. Easily one of the best.

    The Pinball Podcast - iTunes - RSS - Facebook
    Great podcast, regular episodes, very knowledgeable hosts with repair tips etc. Mentions TPA in every episode.

    The Silverball Podcast - iTunes - RSS - Facebook
    Good podcast but there will probably be no more due to one of the presenters passing away recently. Well worth a listen. RIP Steve Rothschild. ENDED

    TOPcast - RSS
    No new episodes but absolutely essential listening if you like your pinball history and interviews with most of the great designers. ENDED

    The Spooky Pinball Podcast - iTunes - RSS - Facebook
    New episodes regular as clockwork at the beginning of each month. The hosts are enthusiastic about pinball and can be quite entertaining but some might find their brand of humour a bit off putting, just my opinion. Now also making their own pinball machines.

    The Pinball Soul Podcast - iTunes - RSS - Facebook
    Has turned out to be a very good new podcast. Lots of pinball news that most pinheads wouldn't have come across otherwise. Well worth a listen. ENDED

    Geek Gamer Weekly - Video - iTunes - Audio - iTunes - Facebook
    Recently upped their pinball coverage, looks like they are aiming at a monthly pinball episode. Episodes 231, 235 and 238 are all pinball. Very good shows so far. Plus as they covered the recent PAPA Circuit Final there is lots of footage on their website.

    Coast 2 Coast Pinball - iTunes - RSS - Facebook
    Another new podcast, focuses on his own recent experiences and then goes into detail on a chosen machine. Very regular episodes so far, good stuff.

    Lock is Lit Podcast - RSS - Facebook
    Another new podcast, again well worth a listen.

    One And Done Pinball Podcast
    Brand new podcast, just the introduction episode at the moment. Encouraging pinheads to create their own content and upload the audio file to become an episode of this podcast. Could be very interesting. There's a thread on pinside about how this came about

    The Dead Flip podcast - Twitch - Facebook - Youtube
    New podcast but it looks like these guys have been making video content for quite a while

    The Pin-Bar Cavern Podcast - itunes-
    By a forum member Daniel aka @superdan. He aims to cover TPA a lot as well as concentrating on one machine in detail.

    For Amusement Only - The EM and Bingo Pinball Podcast

    The Coinbox Pinball Podcast - itunes - RSS
    For a nice change this podcast is by 2 pinball operators so we get to see things from their side.

    The Skillshot Pincast - iTunes -

    This Flippin Podcast - itunes - RSS - Facebook - Tommy and Taylor of the one and done podcast have splintered off to create their own podcast, very nicely done.

    The Boom Go Pinball Podcast - Facebook - RSS - Another podcast born of the one and done podcast. Short, regular podcasts.

    The Canadian Pinball Podcast - Facebook - 2 guys talking pinball

    The Slam Tilt Podcast - iTunes - Facebook

    Bro, do you even talk pinball? - iTunes


    Arcade and Pinball Podcasts

    The Gameroom Junkies Podcast - iTunes - RSS - Facebook
    Another good podcast, mostly pinball but some arcade too.

    The Retro Gaming Roundup - iTunes - RSS - Facebook
    Not really a pinball podcast, mostly its about 90% retro arcade games and 10% pinball but there is always some pinball in there. Episode 63 starts with a review of the DMD extender sold by DR.Pinball in the UK, later has an interview with DR.Pinball and then has a really good interview with Jeff Minter ( an ox on this forum ) - Who says TPA is his favourite go to game. These are REALLY long podcasts, normally 5 to 6 hours ( you don't have to listen to it all in one sitting! ) but highly recommended if you like retro gaming as well as pinball.

    Arcade Outsiders Podcast - iTunes - RSS - YouTube
    Another new podcast covering arcade machines and pinball. Like the retro gaming roundup this one is 90% retro arcade machines and 10% pinball so probably only worth a listen if you like both subjects.

    The Broken Token Podcast - iTunes - RSS - Facebook
    Yet another brand new podcast again covering retro arcade and pinball. Again recommended if you like both subjects.

    Arcade Repair Tips Podcasts - iTunes - RSS - Facebook -
    Yet again this is mostly about retro arcade machines but some pinball in there too. Focusing on the repair ( Duh! ) and restoration of arcade and pinball machines with lots of listener questions.

    Other Audio/Video interviews and podcasts

    PAPA TV Roadshow
    Bobby King interview round 3 with TPAF forum members Jeff Strong and Shutyertrap ( October 2013 )
    2013 pinball expo Farsight studios seminar posted by the awesome pinball news website - lots of other audio clips of seminars on that pinball news expo page too.
    The Portable podcast - Episode 205 - 17th October 2013 - Zen studios interview about Star Wars Pinball
    Bobby King interview on The Perceptive Podcast - 26th July 2013

    As an avid podcast listener that never really thought to look for pinball podcasts I tried out the latest episode of "The Pinball Podcast" and I liked it. It got a positive review from me.

    Yeah, I've been listening to that same episode and it's been growing on me. I'll have to check out some of the others as well--have caught a few episodes of the Spooky Podcast before. Thanks for the list!

    Yeah, Geek Gamer said they will be doing an all Pinball podcast once a month now. They have regular podcasts which cover non-pinball but I haven't listened to those.

    Lately I've been listening to these podcasts: The Pinball Podcast, Pinball Soul and The Gameroom Junkies. I decided to check out Spooky Pinball today and listened to their latest. Man, it was an awful mess. Maybe it's just me but I found it horrible.

    I know what you mean, they try way too hard to entertain, managing to talk about a lot less pinball than they could.

    I only listened to the most recent Spooky podcast but I could give so many examples of why it's horrible. Here's one of the biggest off the top of my mental list. They played a recording of an AC/DC tribute band (I think from the Midwest Gaming Classic) that featured a 10 year-old on drums. Oh, here's another one... they spent about 10 minutes on this: apparently they have movie night on Friday's at they're facility. Family and friends join; they had at least 10 minutes of reaction interviews to the crappy movie they watched. There also was a 30 minute phone-in interview and the call quality was so hard on my ears I had to skip the entire segment. I could come up with at least three more examples if pressed for it.

    Me neither. I listen to them all but the pinball podcast is my favourite. The pinball soul podcast has turned out to be very good too, the guy has a knack for finding bits of news that would otherwise go un-noticed.

    Nice, don't listen to this guy when you're tired. His voice will definitely put you to sleep. I look forward to his podcasts.

    Just listening to the Now Your Playing With Podcast episode 18 which is all about pinball. I haven't added it to the list at the top because as far as I know this is a one off pinball wise. A bit chaotic at the start but they get into some good discussion eventually and talk about a lot of pins they played at papa.

    They also mention The Pinball Arcade quite a bit.

    Thanks for the links! I like The Pinball Podcast, and the TOPcast interviews with pinball industry people are fascinating.

    Yeah the topcast interviews are essential if you are a pinball nerd, such a pity they suddenly stopped recording them. Anyone know why they stopped?

    My guess. Clay Harrell ran out of people willing to talk about the industry. I mean he interviewed a lot but eventually you run out of people that were either willing to talk or worth talking to. I subscribe to Harrell's pinballninja.com webzine which he updates with house call type repair videos on a fairly regular basis. That, along with having a normal life, probably keeps him fairly busy.

    Back to the interviews, you can tell sometimes when someone isn't crazy about discussing the industry. I was surprised that he was able to interview Pat Lawlor for such a long period. Although it ends rather abruptly as does the Chris Granner interview. Basically, the "ok, great talking to you but I'm done now" way of closing it out.

    They're very few others I can think of, though, that I would have liked to see him interview. Brian Eddy comes to mind. Nonetheless, it's great that he did these podcasts. I've listened to some of them more than once.
