    Currently listen to head2head as i LOVE the humour / news but never goes into much technical detail.

    Are there some others i can listen to where the guests really go into technical detail about pinball. There was one years ago where all the guests would talk about firmware / eeproms wiring and everything it was great.

    Regards

    Slam tilt podcast talk tech almost every episode.
    They even had a tech only podcasts about 2 months back with Scott and Zac.

    I can talk tech all this week as it's all I have been doing. But Martin can't follow really so it wouldn't work

    My show, For Amusement Only, has quite a bit of tech - all related to EM games. Cleaning and adjusting switches, disassembling and assembling, lubricating steppers, reading schematics, troubleshooting, and much more. Currently, I am building a few different games, and talking about the challenges involved with that.

    I've also interviewed dozens of restorers, mechanics, and engineers (and one designer), and always talk tech with them.

    Over 430 episodes, generally bite-sized, speaking about a specific problem/issue per episode, typically. Some of the games I'm building are solid state with LCD displays, and I speak about technical (wiring) challenges, drawing schematics, and programming issues (including animations).

    I had a chance to listen on Wednesday . I like the way you break it down so even the newbies can understand. Keep up the good work .

    Have you listened to the old Topcasts? They had tech episodes in between their great interview episodes.

    And I agree with OP. I wish there were more tech-focused pinball (or arcade) podcasts.

    Topcast tech shows were great. I would love it if there was a primarily tech talk show. Something short like For Amusement Only but for SS machines. Imagine if Clay did a Pinball Ninja show, talking about a repair each week, or a show from Lloyd or Vid. Maybe the tech from the Pinheadz show, was it Steve? Seems like that's definitely a niche which someone could fill. I'd even pay a subscription for a show like that.
