Show number 7 is here and it’s our longest yet. We’re not sure if you should thank us or if we should be apologizing yet, but we’ll figure it out soon enough. Here’s some of what we covered in this week’s show.
6 shows! I guess that means we’ve been at it for six months now, huh? Well, I guess there’s no reason to quit now. Take a listen as we take your recent feedback to heart and start molding the show around the things you’ve asked for. Here are the show notes:

March Madness bracket intro, see previous post for details.

We’re not too proud to skip taking advantage of the March Madness trend. We’re running a tournament, hosted at Challonge, that will come complete with prizes for the most accurate bracket predictions. You’ll notice that we have more than 64 teams. Why? Because we can. This year it’s limited to modern pinball, but if this works out well, we’ll do three brackets next year (electronic, EM, and mixed). Yeah, it’s going to be a lot of work, but it should also be tons of fun!
Fill out the bracket with your predictions, including the 3rd place matchup (losers of the semifinal matches)
Either scan or take a clear picture of your bracket, and email it to firstname.lastname@example.org
Vote as the rounds open up for voting. We’ll post notices here, on RGP, Pinside, and KLOV.
Keep track of your bracket’s performance as each matchup is determined
At the conclusion, email the number of picks you got correct to email@example.com.
The highest number of picks wins a prize from The Pinball Podcast and bragging rights for a whole year! Any ties will be broken based on the most correct picks in later rounds (starting with finals, and going a round backwards as necessary). We will verify all final total claims.
You MUST have your bracket emailed to us before first round voting starts, NO EXCEPTIONS!
Voting will begin March 26th, 2012.
Voting will be held via email and will be a blind vote. You’re free to reveal your votes in forum threads, but it’s not required. Your votes will be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org, and instructions on how to do so will be posted with each voting round announcement.
Episode 5 is here and we recorded just hours after learning that Steve Kordek had passed away a the age of 100. We dedicate a good portion of our show to Steve Kordek and his innovations in pinball. We’d like to thank Steve Kordek for all he has done for this industry, for the hobby, and for all of the good and happiness he brought to millions of people in the past 100 years.
Episode 4 is the first podcast of 2012, and there’s plenty to talk about! Jeff is down and out recovering from ankle surgery, and Don has been performing surgery of his own on several pinball machines. The outlook looks good for both operations, but we’re going to focus on the pinball-related ones today. Here are the show notes:
We’re back for our second episode! Thanks to your help we have some feedback to our sticky flipper situation, a new pinball location report, and we’re eager to discuss a new pinball machine and virtual table.
There’s not a lot happening in regards to news and events in November, but there’s always something fun to discuss in pinball. The show notes are below:
It’s the first episode of The Pinball Podcast. We get our feet wet with this podcasting thing and talk about a few pinball related items that have been going on recently and what we can look forward to during the rest of October. Below are some notes from the show.
