    Greetings Everyone,

    I've started a new pinball podcast titled, This American Pinball. The scope and focus on the podcast are to talk to the community of pinball owners, operators, and enthusiasts and share the stories within our world under glass. You can find episodes on our website at www.thisamericanpinball.com or on Podbean, iTunes, Spotify, Stitcher, and Google Play.

    Will you talk about how you really feel about the games.....or are you going to have interviews with people in the industry....?!..............Joey

    When a game comes about that I like or dislike I will bear the truth on how I feel. As for interviewing people in the industry, it would be very rare. We already have enough podcasts that either talk about news or interview industry people. I am more interested in stories from the pinball community.

    Isn’t Pinside the continuous 24/7 written story of pinball from enthusiasts, operators, and owners? Do you feel your podcast will open alternate new feedback?

    Yes, and to serve as another medium to engage in pinball stories. Truth be told, I am autistic, abet high functioning, and I have a hard time focusing on reading. My main method of learning is auditory, so I can do something with my hands, which keeps me locked in. Thank God for text to speech programs, or I would have never made through college. So, reading via a forum isn't my thing, and I am sure there may be others who may want to listen to stories while in the garage working on their pinball projects or driving to and from work. Thus, my goal is to create an entertaining podcast with engaging sound design elements that are similar to the style of traditional radio programs like This American Life.

    Hasn't popped up in my podcast app yet. Not sure what it uses for a search engine. Will keep any eye out for it tho (or figure out how to make it search one of the sites you listed).

    Gave a quick listen on the web site - so far, so good!

    Thank you, and which podcast app do you use, I will investigate why it isn't showing up.

    Listened to Episode 1 and your followup "mini-sode" and enjoyed them! I appreciate your podcast's creative style though some of the dead air segues are a bit long.

    Now subscribed. Thanks!

    Thank you for giving the show a listen and subscribing. My podcasting background is in writing and narrating true-crime material, a far cry from pinball. Thus, I am still figuring out the style of narration. Initially, episode one was very straight-laced, very rehearsed, and tight. My buddy listened to the first demo and was like, "Dude, you have to loosen up a bit, it's pinball, have some fun with it." So, since then, that has been the goal to be more organic. It'll take a few to get the right cadence, but it will get there.
