So I will try and make this as non attacking as possible but I listen to a lot of podcasts which led me to listen to all the available pinball podcasts. My short synopsis and feeling on which ones are worth your time.
1. Gameroom Junkies.
Really not all pinball but they focus a ton on it. Very good insight and knowledge of the hobby and I think underrated. Great sound quality and yes a ton of info on other arcade related stuff. I always listen start to finish and am never bored. Great personalities that really play well off each other.
2. Pinball Podcast.
Good sounds good dudes, tremendous knowledge of games new and old. Seems like this thread pumped them up a bit so I am raising there ranking. There last episode was just fantastic. They have a good format and stick close to it. I like that there human and make mistakes but are willing to admit them on the following episode. There review good and bad of Avengers just made me smile from it's honesty. You won't find interviews here but that does not mean they do not have awesome content.
Brand new I meany really new only has done 4 episodes so far. Amazing voice and recording quality. His sound quality and voice is above everyone his knowledge is not but he makes up for it with soothing mellow voice and super well spoken. Truly enjoy this one so far and probably will rank #1 soon. He does audiobook voiceovers for a living and it shows in the quality and rythim of his info. He pulls a ton of news from the web and pinside and he plans his show out better than most. Truly a asset to the community and I look forward to his next podcast. My only critique would be most of it's news is out there he just put it all in one spots. Would love to hear more interviews done by Mr. Sexy voice but not sure that's the focus here.
4. Spooky Podcast. God Charlie seems really nice and I hate to be critical but maybe just maybe he will take some of this and improve some things. He has tremendous knowledge but it is really ruined by to much Family time and horrible sound quality. He also spends way to much time plugging his advertisers and contests and of course his future games, which I can understand but why not just have adds in beginning middle or end? I have nothing against family but it is sometimes painfully off topic and not enjoyable for me. The other thing is the creepy EM guy who sounds like he has someone trapped in cellar and the horrid audio of drunk people playing pinball. I have never finished one episode and that is because I get bored or fast forward through stuff that is uninteresting. If he just upped the audio quality and dumped some of the these features I would enjoy his show. I hope his pinball machines audio is better then the podcast. Seems like a super nice guy and family so I only write this in hopes you will improve it.
Podcasts that feature pinball but are not solely devoted to pinball that are damn good and worth your time.
#1 Geek Gamer Weekly.
Chase is a tremendous host. Really nice sounding. Best round-tables I have heard about pinball. Especially loved there "how you got into pinball" feature and anything with Bowen is usually awesome. Only listened to two shows but finished both and really enjoyed them and sound quality was great.
#2 Arcade Repair Tips!
Mainly focused on arcade repair and the hosts really do a good job of one being techy and one being oldschool. Last episode was all about the Texas pinball festival and was really a great listen. Sometimes podcast run to long this one was a bit short but the perfect length. Thought they gave pretty honest reviews of pins played and made me want to go to this festival.
Been really busy at work and have not gotten a chance to listen to more shows but I am glad people are enjoying this thread.
Interested if there is anymore I am missing or if others have similar or opposing views. Flame on if you must will break out my suit.
