See here for the TWIP podcast list which is more up-to-date:
I am trying to compile a definitive list of pinball podcasts. Below you will find the list complete with links to their websites, iTunes, RSS feed and Facebook page where available. Please contact me if you know of any other pinball podcasts or if the links are out of date and I will endeavour to keep the list current.
Below the list you will find descriptions of each podcast. I have copied these from the websites of the various podcasts where a succinct description was available. As you can see the descriptions are currently incomplete, please contact me if you are a podcaster and would like to provide a brief description of your show.
This list is based on a previous list compiled by pinsider Kevlar. Thanks to Kevlar for providing that content.

Canadian Pinball Podcast, The:
Two Canucks' perspective on all things pinball.
Coast 2 Coast Pinball:
A podcast, a commentary, a man out of quarters. Nate Shivers is a force of nature. With over 150 episodes (and counting) of his podcast "Coast 2 Coast Pinball" in the can, Nate has established himself as an industry insider delivering insightful commentary, celebrity interviews, and ground-breaking news. Traveling literally coast to coast, Nate regales listeners with trip reports, industry speculation, forum static, passionate pinball talk, and more. (Description by Southern-Fried Gameroom Expo)
For Amusement Only:
Just a guy that loves older machines. Prewar, postwar, bingos, mannikin games, bowlers, flipper games, gun games and more! Playing and feature discussion as well as some tech talk. Mostly talks to himself, but with occasional guest spots.
Head2Head Pinball Podcast:
WE NEED MORE PINBALL PODCASTS!! said no one ever
I personally love listening to pinball podcasts when I am driving or when i have free time. Slam Tilt Podcast, Coast2Coast, Mr K, etc.
With the absence of Pinheadz podcast there is no one currently podcasting about pinball from Australia.
Martin and myself have to decided to give it a go!
Frequency: Weekly. Recording Monday and releasing on Tuesday
Length: We are *aiming* to keep all episodes between 45 minutes and 1.5 hours.
Content: All things pinball! We would like to focus on the Australian scene if there is content to talk about, but we will be covering news from all manufactures, tournament news, interviews, reviews and opinions on new/old games.
Little Kings Pinball Podcast:
The Little Kings Pinball Podcast is a entertainment show about a lot of things "pinball". Listen in to the fun with your hosts Ryan Wanger and Kevin Ryan.
Lock is Lit Podcast:
We are a couple guys who have started collecting pinball machines. We are also idiots when it comes to keeping these things alive. Because of this fact, we decided to start a podcast so that hopefully you can learn as we learn.
Meltdown Pinball Podcast:
This podcast will cover what we (Steve Bowden and Nikki DeLasagna) wish to cover, when we wish to cover it. We feel no pressure to keep up with the latest new-in-box pinball drama, although we may dabble in that at times. Certainly, tournament topics will be brought up since I am a prolific pinball tournament player, and Nikki is a pinball league player. Really, we are just two avid pinball players looking to have as much pinball fun as possible.
This is a collaboration with Nikki DeLasagna. Sometimes Nikki might do something on her own and release a show, sometimes I might do something on my own. We are not holding ourselves to a FORMAT™. Not every show will be like the first one here, and future shows may deviate wildly from the FORMAT™ you might think we are using. Shows do not have to be a set amount of time. There could be a 50 minute show like episode one, or there could be some 5 minute mini-episodes. Even compilations of separate topics into one show might happen.
I’ve been wanting to do the “Meltdown Pinball Podcast” for a long time. I’ve had topics saved up for a while including debates and other ideas. I haven’t had the means or the intestinal fortitude to start the show which I have been thinking about for … maybe years … until now.
Mrs Pin Podcast:
Searching for a pinball podcast from the eyes of a female, non-professional pinball spouse? Yeah... me too. And it doesn’t exist. Or it didn’t UNTIL NOW. Lots of great podcasts from pinball men (#timtam), but where’s all the female love? Dorks unite! Enjoy this in three parts, and cut me some slack, it’s my first podcast ever!

Pints and Pinball Podcast, The:
Well, we figured that that there just weren't enough pinball podcasts out there today and there just absolutely had to be one more. This one, has a little bit of a twist where we also talk about homebrew.
mavantix (aka Maverick) is a walking encyclopedia of homebrew, and has an unbelievable basement brewery! He also has been bitten by the pinball bug not too long ago.
knockerlover (Myself) am a full-on pinball addict, but I've taken more to the restoration, fixing, and technical side of things.. although I also like to work on my rules knowledge and flipper skills too!
Our approach to this podcast is.. well, to have fun.. and just talk about the normal stuff we would talk about.. only for you to hear.
Pinball News and Pinball Magazine Podcast:
Martin Ayub (Pinball News) and Jonathan Joosten (Pinball Magazine) discuss the pinball industry news of the past month at the beginning of a new month.
Rip Tide Pinball Podcast:
This addition to the absolute smorgasbord of podcasts already serving the pinball community comes from the perspectives of two women in the hobby who looked at the long list of podcasts out there and, through meticulous calculations, concluded that there might be room for a few more female voices to join the fray. We will be covering anything and everything in the world of pinball, talking with the people of pinball, and trying to keep a finger on the pulse of the growing presence of women in pinball...there may be some light traditional sports talk and a tangent here and there, as one might expect.
We're looking forward to adding our voices to the pinball hobbyist chorus, and we hope you'll join us!

What Could Have Pin:
A hypothetical pinball podcast hosted by pinball enthusiast and yours truly, Cam McMillion. Each episode, we will explore a franchise that should have had a pinball machine made, but never got the chance to see the light of day. We will discuss everything from cabinet art and playfield layout to callouts that would have appeared in the game.
And here's my favorite part, YOU will get to discuss here on Pinside and on Facebook(but let's be serious, probably mostly on Pinside ) what you liked or didn't like about the design and your own thoughts on what cool features a game might have had! This will transform the podcasting experience from the traditional one-to-many model, and instead get everyone involved in the creative process!
So please, give it a listen, a like and a review! Episodes will be up every other Thursday and, with your help, it will continue to get better and better!
