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!

Podcast for the Ages!
And ages…. This podcast is not for the weak hearted. Whitney and Brent produce a great show however sometimes it’s like a marathon in length. So if you don’t have 2-4 hours to kill each month this is not the show for you. But for me it’s something I listen to several times each month. There is always some bit of information I missed the first time around. I met these southern gentlemen at the 2014 Southern Fried Gameroom Expo in Atlanta and we hit it off quickly. Even though they are not fans of Baby Pac-man I still love these guys.
Updated Dec 2018: this is still my go to podcast for a long drive and perfect for a long drive game pickup. I’m learning new things about RC cars, plumbing, and lengthy stays of a Space Shuttle pin.
Best Arcade and Pinball podcast around
This is one of my favorite shows and here is why.
If you are into arcade and pinball games you should subscribe to this show.
If you like to hear arcade collectors talk about plumbing you should subscribe to this show.
If you like in depth reviews on multimeters, high voltage probes (yes, that is a thing), 3D printers, trailers, ratchet straps, and all the other random musings of two arcade and pinball guys you should subscribe to this show.
And if you can get through a full episode in one sitting mad props to you. :-)
The go-to podcast for the arcade and pinball hobby!
Content, content, content! There’s no shortage of information and detail in this podcast. If you are interested in anything related to arcade gaming, pinball, consoles, gaming conventions, latest gaming news and more this is the one place to go to to get it all.
In addition to the standard gaming fare, Brent and Whitney frequently delve into topics that connect you to the real world. It’s not uncommon to learn a little something extra like plumbing, or in-depth reviews of ratchet straps, all the while keeping it relevant to their gaming activities. While it sounds off-beat, it really is entertaining.
The extensive back catalog is a time capsule of gaming goodness, and you won’t be sorry to invest the time to listen to them all from the beginning.
The hosts do a great job keeping it relevant, engaging and light hearted. This family friendly podcast will provide hours of enjoyment (perhaps months if you listen to the whole catalog).
The production quality is excellent (something that many podcasts lack). Well worth subscribing.
Thanks guys, keep it up!
