I have to say, if this pops up in my podcast list, I listen immediately. While I do not agree with every perspective Chris takes, I find the show quite entertaining. Chris has also become a consumer advocate for the collector. Not much he has said about the inflated costs and value of current NIB pinball is really that far off. I know I have second guessed several NIB Stern purchases because of his spot-on evaluation of the price for what you get under the glass factor.
It is also refreshing to listen to a podcast that has none of the cringe-worthy "that's what she said" kind of humor in it.
I like Kaneda's content. But his whining sometimes gets to me. It can also be a bit repetitive and I could do without the emotional roller coaster he tends to ride. That should be left out. Which is why he is beat out by my favorite podcast, which is is Jeff Parsons', Pinball Players Podcast. Again, none of the cringe-worthy "heh, heh, you said balls" type of humor. Tells it like it is, gets to the point, has great content, has a great top-5 list. I just wish he posted episodes more often.
