    Do you think in order to have the best pinball podcast you should own atleast 1 game in order to discuss the hobby with any expertise?

    No. This is like discouraging people from playing in tournaments who do not own a game.

    Some of the best tournament players I know don’t own a single pinball machine? Does that disqualify them from winning a tournament?

    Eh. Anyone can have a podcast about anything. Plus when your podcast is devoted to games that aren’t out yet, makes it hard to own any of them. When it’s out, it’s old news. Haha

    I think that’s a very classist statement. Not everyone has $$$ to drop on hardware, but everyone can love the game. It’s all about the love of the game.

    Plus - as coz said - some of the best tourney players own ZERO pins.

    #7 70 days ago

    Dumb question. I know plenty of top level players that do not own a single game, probably play more often and have a much more depth of knowledge than a lot of home collectors. Means nothing.

    #8 70 days ago

    Should you win a TWIPY if your name starts with K?? C'mon mods.

    #9 70 days ago

    No. Next question.

    #10 70 days ago

    Cargument time! I don't have to own a Tesla to enjoy talking about it, watching developments, speculating, etc.

    Pinball is a little different in that you can still have the experience with location games, at shows, with friends' collections, etc.

    What's up with all these people reviewing food and they don't even own restaurants?

    #12 70 days ago

    If the podcast was solely about pinball repair, then maybe yeah, but in the cited example who cares. you can still have a passion for the hobby even if you don't own a pin. There are a lot of people in my league who don't own pins and are 100X better than me.

    #13 70 days ago

    What a troll thread...

    Not like he never owned games...

    Thats like you cant do a movie review, unless you own a cinema.

    Best is probebly left to the viewer/listener to decide.

    #15 70 days ago

    There are no prerequisites for either owning or talking about pinball however the time and creative energy that goes into producing a podcast supersedes that of owning a pinball game IMHO

    #16 70 days ago

    Should you post about an award ceremony, about a podcast on a pinball website when you aren't even up for an award, you don't host a podcast, and you don't run a website????

    Ridiculous.

    #17 70 days ago

    LOL this is funny that this is even suggested .Really ??? all the k haters lol. So I can't talk about something im passionate about because I don't own one.Geeee where is the pinball love .Oh ya I forgot to add that pinballs are not cheap and yes people can go to places and play anytime they want.So I say this all of you like drewbo81 who does a podcast can only talk about games you currently own lol.

    as long as you have some UTZ cheese balls you are good
    if they ain't UTZ you shouldn't be allowed

    Sure, as long as the category is called ‘Best Pinball podcast with a host owning at least one game’

    Commentators don’t play football....

    Quoted from Gorgar666:

    Commentators don’t play football....

    But I’d damn sure watch NFL games with play calling by owners! Imagine Jerry Jones yelling at Dak on every play...”Jesus Christ, Witten was open on the out route you ninkompoop! That’s coming out of next year’s contract!”

    Not to mention that he lives in NYC and plays pinball at various locations like Sunshine Laundromat.

    I swear....the amount of real estate he takes up in some people's brain is comical.

    Oh man, they got a mod to comment! Hook, line and sinker. Classic.

    Yep @crumbalimb just what the pinball world is clamoring for...a podcast about f14 and laser cue each and every week

    It was recently pointed out to me my pins are 40 years old, so my opinion of the new Sterns don't count. There will always be a sense of entitlement and superiority from some owners who have invested thousands in games.

    Yep phil-lee there will always be that 10-12year old kid we all knew growing up that bragged about the new stuff his parents got him/her...they were douchy then and became even worse adults...

    How about a better question? Should the TWIP podcast be eligible for a Twipy award? How can they be eligible to win an award from the awards show that they control the voting web site for? That would be like the academy awards giving themselves an Oscar. TWIP podcast should not be allowed on the ballot for this reason.

    Where the hell are the Twerpys?!?

    #35 70 days ago

    Whoever posted this is probably a dope!

    #36 70 days ago

    I think you should be able to win a TWIPY for best podcast if you don't have a podcast. It would open the field up considerably and 99.9% of us would not care a bit.

    #37 70 days ago

    Do flippers technically own a pinball for a short period of time between putting down a refundable deposit and when it's drop shipped?

    #38 70 days ago

    People do realize that Kaneda DOES encourage people to enjoy pinball right. I mean its one guy adding some balance to an otherwise recent and quite aggressive lean towards ownership culture...If the baby is ugly, the baby is ugly.

    #39 70 days ago

    Should a pinball distributor be allowed to review a pin? 'Tis the season to be jolly Trollolololol lololol

    Its America and anyone can win a podcast award. How you can be voted the best without owning the item or not using donations for research by playing locations regularly is beyond me? I might as well be listining to my neighbor on their thoughts of pinball!
    Comparisons of Tesla and tournament players are unrelated to the question? Better comparisons would be a car podcast from someone who doesnt own a car. Tournament commentater who has never played in a tournament. Get my drift?
    If your going to buy shoes do you base your decision on reviews by owners or the marketing lingo on the box?

    Yeah you basically are. Half of these fucking clowns don;t even have podcast degrees.

    Is this a real question?

    If you are referring to the two time Twippy award winning podcast out of NYC then K has owned a variety of machines that he rotates in and out and plays location pinball. Seems valid to me. If you are talking about some other yahoo, can't say.

    At the end of the day, it is just pinball. Listen, don't listen, it really does not matter.

    Yup! And he has shined a bright light on to the cost of these machines and what you get (and don't get) for your money. I know his perspective has made me think twice about several potential NIB purchases, (mostly from Stern.)

    Should you be allowed to eat a Big Mac if you don’t own a franchise ?

    #46 70 days ago

    I listen to zero podcasts. None. Should I be allowed to own pinball machines?

    How do you know which machines to buy then? You are just blindly throwing money around with no guidance!

    UNLESS that guidance is from somone that doesn;t own a pinball machine!!!
    This is why we have pinball laws and pinball courts people.
