Recommended Pinball & Arcade Podcasts and Streams

The Broken Token Classic Arcade & Pinball Podcast (iTunes, Other)
Brent and Whitney are excellent ambassadors to the arcade & pinball hobby.  Their shows tend to be on the long side (3 hrs+) but you only get one a month and they are usually divided into 3 bite-sized segments.  Remember only one a month, so you have to make the flavor last!   These guys exude southern-fried charm while telling relatable updates on their respective collections and actions in the hobby.  I've found their product and recommendation insights to be excellent and repair advice to be pragmatic.    Both have been at it for a bit and they currently own -or - have owned most common grail-games and I think it puts more weight behind their suggestions and feedback.  They've been where you are.. 


Kaneda's Pinball Podcast  (iTunes, SoundCloud)
Kaneda (Chris Kooloris) is a passionate dude.    I've followed his shenanigans back since the Wired Story of his bedroom arcade and I've watched him get banned from KLOV, Pinside and others.   If there's something excitable going on in pinball, odds are that Kaneda is all up in it somehow.    I find his podcast entertaining and informative while doing yard work or other things but he isn't for everyone.    He does have a tendency to cover things that have gone wrong (if it bleeds, it leads) but I don't have to agree with him on everything to be entertained by the show.   Chris does feel like he's constantly working at trying to find an equilibrium in the hobby and despite his "hot take" nature of content, he has had excellent predictive instincts regarding new-pinball.


Special When Lit Pinball Podcast (iTunes)
A new podcast; new to me anyway.  They hope to be weekly, news-oriented but not around tournament play and not exclusive to new-pinball.  A couple episodes in, so far I think it is a good listen!
