    Quoted from jorant:

    So he lied about his job making him stop... shocker

    he stopped by choice. both, because of the disbelief and disappointment he felt of someone going as far as to contact his employer, and to let things cool down. just like returning was his choice. his employer has no more or less say in his activities and hobbyies outside of work than anyone else's.

    It was a good show as always but I felt his presentation was a bit rusty or maybe guarded. Am I alone on that?

    #53 84 days ago
    Quoted from sataneatscheese:

    ... Looks like he's going to try and have a more positive attitude going forward. ...

    It will be interesting to see how long Chris holds to this given how many times he has made other declarations of change, but then reverted back to his former self/style.

    Just part of the Kaneda personality that makes him entertaining to listen to though and I'm glad his podcast has returned. Warts and all.

    #54 83 days ago
    Quoted from Krupps4:

    For what it’s worth, at the end of the podcast he said everything he said previously was true.

    Well I'm convinced.

    #55 83 days ago
    Quoted from yancy:

    Well I'm convinced.

    He has been wrong from time to time.

    #56 83 days ago

    I'm happy he's back i enjoyed listening to his podcast

    #57 83 days ago

    To me his show was entertaining at times, but then I remember we had a decent social media friendship and it just kind of.. disappeared. So for me the Chis Kooluris show is like a karma chameleon, it comes and goes. His approach to people is marketing incarnate- like Diana from the classic satire film 'Network.' So I choose to not support what I don't believe in.

    #58 83 days ago

    one of the poll options should be "who the hell is Kaneda?"

    #59 83 days ago

    this guys voice is annoying

    Quoted from Mr68:

    It felt neutered. Likely how it will be going forward since he doesn't want to personally attack anyone which could be used against him. I'll miss the pinside babies shows since they were always my favorite.

    #62 83 days ago

    Hold the presses. Podcast 501. Thought he left off at 499. Hmmm.

    #63 83 days ago
    Quoted from RyanStl:

    Hold the presses. Podcast 501. Thought he left off at 499. Hmmm.

    He did a 500. He’s just sitting it. It was the JJP/GNR reveal.

    #64 83 days ago

    My eyes are rolling so far they fell out of my head. Can't listen, won't listen. But good luck to him, hopefully the newer, more positive version will be a good show. He will probably lose listeners who tune into the show mostly to hear the trash, and that will end only one of two ways.

    #65 83 days ago

    It’s good to have him back, Iv tried listening to others but just can’t get into them they just ain’t Kaneda maybe you need a certain type of personality to like him or something I don’t know but I like it

    Did he have some donation link? I’d pay to keep him around.

    -2
    #67 82 days ago

    Signed up, this is content I am willing to pay for! (And pinball chronicles that show rules!)

    #68 82 days ago

    If he ever interviews Choggard I'll tune in--otherwise it's a pass.

    #69 82 days ago

    the whole kaneda this is an I-D-10-T error.

    #70 82 days ago

    Good for those who love listening to him, I never have and never will. It sounds like he has a narcissistic personality disorder. I do enjoy reading the posts of those who worship him and those who despise him.

    #71 82 days ago
    Quoted from BudManPinFan:

    So you came into this thread hoping to find neither of those?
    Just kidding a little.

    Quoted from TheLaw:

    I understand you're kind if new. Trust me, I'd be posting no matter what.

    law mows the grass and keeps the dogs fed here!

    #73 82 days ago
    Quoted from Rdoyle1978:

    hopefully the newer, more positive version

    So far he throwed dirt on every modern pin besides GNR and RAZA that are not released (yet). That’s why so many hate him. I find that annoying sometimes but keep listening bc it’s entertaining.

    #74 82 days ago

    Remember how kaneda basically devoted like every show to the clear coat issues and then basically took credit for being the one to force manufacturers to change? Except they didn't change. The problems continue and he's back hyping new games as if the problems don't exist.

    Well, I mean he is an idiot, so...

    I really liked about 25 percent of his podcats. I enjoy how he would not be a yes man to the industry and somehow get lots of news (which often was clearly not real or accurate). However, I hated his huge ego and I hated how he played the victim constantly. When I first listened I thought I fell upon a special rare treat where he spoke about how pinside was mean to him.... nope. That was his fucking schtick.

    Quoted from russdx:

    The guy rails against everything that costs money in pinball yet buys games exclusively to flip them for profit, then has the stones to take money for a podcast.

    You're funding an ego, nothing more.

    #77 82 days ago
    Quoted from BudManPinFan:

    I have a Kaneda prayer mat and all of my money goes to his Pantheon account.
    (Jesus, we enjoy his podcast, we don't worship)

    #78 82 days ago

    If he follows through on his softer touch and doesnt talk shit about everything and everyone Ill enjoy the podcast more. I dunno if he can hold himself back long, but I hope he can.

    #79 82 days ago

    Meh, guy makes outrageous claims for attention. When they come true people on here praise him. When they don't those same people make excuses.

    #80 82 days ago

    U guys r aware that this is just pinball. How anyone can do a podcast based solely on this hobby is amazing to me, not too mention it takes a special kind of douche-bag to get banned from pinside.

    #81 82 days ago

    #502 up now

    #82 81 days ago
    Quoted from dung:

    Sounds like another massive ego I know.

    Quoted from Rdoyle1978:

    That describes a massive number in this hobby. The difference with Kaneda is he shouts through a bullhorn.

    #84 81 days ago

    Welcome back Kaneda!

    As a long time listener I have to say that the hobby was not the same without that podcast on the air.

    #85 81 days ago

    Kaneda adds spice to the pinball scene. Some people like it hot and some don’t.

    #86 81 days ago

    Where’s option 4 on the poll?

    “Knew he wasn’t gone and would come back”

    #87 81 days ago
    Quoted from Extraballz:

    The kind of spice that gives you diarrhea

    #88 81 days ago

    I can tolerate his cringy narcissistic disorder to a certain degree. Just tell me any pinball podcast as entertaining.
    I'm glad hes back, i just hope he can hold his shit together and don't be as stupit as before...

    #89 81 days ago

    He's okay-ish. I wish there was a "skip douchebaggery" feature on the podcast, I hate the wasted time on drama. He's like the Jersey Shore of Pinball. Kind of like a WWF character, you know, the annoying self promotion, a bit of entertaining, drama, and somewhere in that there is actual athleticism. Just like his podcast, somewhere in there, there is some pinball information/discussion. I'll listen once in a while if I'm super bored. Good luck to him, I know he talks a lot about positive vibes, but time to just do it, let go of the ego, or don't. I don't care not my podcast...after all, lots of people like Jersey Shore and WWF. You do you Chris. I know you're reading, all the best.

    #90 81 days ago

    I never listened before but started this past week. I enjoy it.

    #91 81 days ago
    Quoted from Jeffswack:

    Hopefully he'll atleast put up his interview archives for new listeners there's some good interviews over the years.

    Just because i dont like something doesn't mean i ignore it, push it away. I like to learn more about the things i dont like to have a better understanding of whatever it is to make an informed opinion that i keep learning on. This way when i make a comment positive or negative it comes from someone who is informed on whatever the topic may be.

    More people should try it.

    #94 80 days ago

    This thread is filled with people who love Kaneda or hate kaneda but listen to kaneda. And the latter group will deny but that’s fine. A lot of jealousy here - i get it.

    Thank god kaneda is back. Spice up this industry and get people talking. And the ballpin stunt was hilarious.

    King is back.

    What's your informed opinion?

    #96 80 days ago

    Enjoy your podcast and appreciate your time and effort. Hobby wasn’t the same while you were gone. Keep it professional and you’ll go even further this time around.

    #97 80 days ago
    Quoted from delt31:

    hate kaneda but listen to kaneda.

    Not sure why anyone would hate the guy, I just don't know why anyone would listen. Hes not affecting anything in the industry or in upcoming releases, hes not playing pins live with tutorials like DeadFlip. Whats the point?

    If I were a Patreon supporter, I'd probably pause my support until he unlocks the back catalog of episodes. As much as there is to complain about, he did get some interviews with important people.

    What other pin podcast talked about the many quality problems certain pins had. K did it frequently and that was very good for pin consumers. No? Jerk or not that guy is the best advocate we have for checking pin companies on what they do wrong. Every other podcast just talks about the positive spin they can put on pins. Afraid the pin companies will get mad at them. They only discuss one side of the coin.
