    Hello everyone.

    I wanted to announce The Slap Save Pinball Podcast and give anyone who might be interested, some information about who, what, why and when. Myself, and Chris kidchrisso , have recently just posted our 4th episode that discusses the hobby and community that we both have come to focus so much on and enjoy. We are located just outside of St. Louis, MO. We feature shorter episodes (30-45mins max) on a weekly basis, and really keep a fast pace that doesn't take ourselves, or pinball for that matter, too seriously. We are not in this for cash, quasi-fame/notoriety, drama, or any sort of benefit other than sharing our enthusiasm.

    As guys who soak up any feedback we can, including keeping tabs on discussions here on pinside about podcasting in the hobby, we are aware that this isn't everyone's "cup of tea." For those of you that despise them, we will never try to shove this down your throat. If you might be one who DOES enjoy podcasts, just know, we would love to have you participate and hopefully have a laugh or two with us. This thread will be the only place we will personally announce, discuss or talk about the podcast. We always welcome constructive criticism and feedback, and there are several options to contact us listed below.

    Both Chris and I know that the pinball podcast landscape is crowded with people who have set the bar very, very high and you all have a LOT of great sources for this sort of thing. We respect the hell out of any and all those who provide any sort of contribution to the hobby, podcasting or otherwise, and hope that at some point, we can be an influence to another show down the road, if and when, we have proven ourselves. We wanted to wait to announce it till we had a few episodes established so anyone interested could get an idea of our intended format.

    Thanks for reading, and we hope you will consider us on a long commute, sitting on the crapper, or just trying to fill a pinball void you may have. Just don't let the seat hit you in the $*@^ while you are listening on the throne.

    -Jason (and Chris)

    Just saved you to my favorite. I have listened to all 4 podcast. No toilet lid problem here, does Chris have his game of (throne) set at 6.5 degrees? If so he should level it out. Plus I do hate that you can launch a ball with smart button, but hate it more that it starts my game on free play. Had people over Christmas eve and had Aerosmith started four time by someone leaning on game, while waiting for their turn and watching another game being played. Happy New Year !!!

    Quoted from Spiderpin:

    Change the setting in the menu to disable that feature. I have to disable it everytime I update my Star Wars premium code.

    Great podcast. Always looking forward to the next.

    #5 1 year ago

    I just listened to all four of the Slap Save podcasts today, and really enjoyed them. In my opinion, each episode improved upon the previous. I also could not stop listening today. I love Jason's demeanor, coupled with Chris's rants. A few times Chris pulled Jason over to the dark side, which was awesome.

    Great stuff boys - keep it up!

    #6 1 year ago

    I’ll give it a try.

    Quoted from rai:

    Don't get discouraged by Episode one, hang with it, or fast forward a bit through it. Episodes 2-4 are really good, each one building on the last.

    #8 1 year ago

    Thanks for the kind words! We appreciate each and everyone of you that have given us a shot. We are having a blast doing this.

    Episode 5 just just dropped for those that might be interested. https://slapsave.podbean.com/e/ep-5-pinball-sale-deal-breakers-awful-facebook-sellers-and-steve-ritchie-digs-one-of-our-wives/

    So the effects in the film Sin City were painfully ugly to you guys? I think not. It’s a great artistic technique that deserves to be appreciated in pinball.

    Lol. Thank you Ice! Trust me, with Chris around, there is no shortage of expletives that I have to bleep out. I had the pleasure of being in Chicago last night and met up with Ken and Bill of the Special When Lit Podcast and had Ken rolling when I told him I can visually identify the word F@$k in it's waveform from Chris's mouth without even listening. That is no lie.

    Zach. I love ya like a brother, but I think you may find yourself in the minority on the pro B&W side. Enjoy your bright orange Camry.

    Great show fellas. Curious, can you guys or do you post your podcasts to YouTube? Reason being, every time I listen to your podcast and don’t finish and have to come back to listen to the remainder(wife bitching, kids fighting, etc), it doesn’t save where I left off and I have to search and click on the status line to find where I last left off. On YouTube, it saves where you last left off. I realize YouTube is usually for video, but this feature would make it easier for accessing your podcast. Keep up the great work and keep this m’f$cker going boys!!!

    Most podcasts app should resume as well. If you're an iPhone user you should consider using the default Podcasts app from Apple. It's great. It evens plays back a short segment from where you left of upon resuming if the 'pause' gap is too long.

    Is suspect Android also offers a wide variety of quality podcast apps with similar features.

    Thanks!!

    Quoted from Koos:

    Yes if you use Android and want to try one I suggest Podcast Addict. Its free version is fully featured (paying just eliminates the banner ads) and will remember your progress as well. Pocket Casts is another really popular app on Android (not free but powerful).

    #23 1 year ago

    I use Pocket Casts on android. Best podcasting app in my opinion, and I've tried a ton of them.

    I appreciate the feedback and that is a terrific idea. While a podcatcher app will resume, for those folks who would prefer to use YouTube, it will be uploaded there starting with the next episode. Thank you for the suggestion. -Jason

    #30 1 year ago

    Hey fellas, I checked out Beatles today because of your last episode. Wow, what a surprise. Much better than I expected. I’m not sure I would buy one, but man it was fun and pretty challenging. That orbit/loop was super satisfying to hit over and over. The light show and cabinet/playfield art were super impressive.

    Damn! I've still not been able to try it. I agree about the prospect of buying it, but I'd love to give it a few games.

    #33 1 year ago

    kidchrisso

    Oh I'm not buying it, nor Munsters. I'm awaiting other old fart games. Fingers crossed for Highway to Heaven or Hee Haw.

    #34 1 year ago

    What are your thoughts on POTC? I actually got a few games on that yesterday too. I wanted to love it. Man, it’s just so crowded. The ramps come down to the middle of the playfield. It feels like there is no room to make and see all your shots. And wow, super complicated. I guess you would learn the rules if you owned it, eventually.

    #35 1 year ago

    My opinion? It's deep. Too deep for me. The character selection is absurd, the rule set is complicated, which I don't usually mind, but excessively so in this case. The theme is a miss for me as well. It's lack of assets is glaring and it feels dated already to me. It would be like someone releasing a Scream theme now. That ship has sailed, pun intended. I love jjp, and I have played it extensively and it's still a miss for me. I love the Hobbit, when setup well and with the latest code, and I know some people despise it though, so to each his own I suppose.

    #36 1 year ago

    I just started with episode 6 and I wanted to say great job. Very enjoyable and not overlong with meaningless and boring banter like other podcasts out there.

    #37 1 year ago

    I enjoy the short, 30 min podcasts you guys put out. Sometimes hour+ podcasts seem like work to listen to. Nice change. Keep up the good work.

    #38 1 year ago

    Thanks for the listens and the feedback guys. We enjoy the longer podcasts for certain, and listen to them regularly, and they all have their place. We saw a show length that was being ignored though and thought there might be demand for a shorter, succinct show. It seems to be hitting home for more people than we ever anticipated this early in the game.

    We may do the occasional double episode if circumstances call for it but we plan on sticking with the 30-45 min length for sure.

    #39 1 year ago

    Nice job Jason and Chris. The two of you play off of each other really well and it's a very easy listen. I've been enjoying all of your episodes and look forward to each release.

    Looking forward to connecting for some beverages SOONER than later.

    #41 1 year ago

    As always everyone, thanks for your continued support. The buzz and feedback we are getting has only fueled the fire for Chris and I to continue to make an ass out of ourselves across the "internets" for your entertainment... and to piss off our wonderful wives.

    Just posted and live is our lucky number 7 episode! We are giving away a set of Pinstadiums with UV+Glow and invisishields for any machine of your choice. Listen to this episode to find out how to enter.

    In this episode, we talk slingers, Chris vents about 500, err 600 Munster LE's and we talk about what we look for in used games. There may be a mention of Dutch hookers and Greg Bone's back problems, although we do not believe they are related. In this episode's easter egg, which may be a thing moving forward, there is a guest voice of a caller who thoughtfully called in to our voice line with his articulate review (edited for length and entertainment purposes.) Houston... you have a problem.

    We just posted our latest episode after a pretty incredible ride in a stainless steel under-powered sports car with a food processor on it. The notes are below if you are interested. Thanks for listening and joining us in our shenanigans!

    Ep. 8/60: Back to the Future
    January 22, 2019

    In episode 60 of the Slap Save Pinball Podcast we look back at 2019 and summarize the current state of pinball. Chris has somehow still avoided a temper induced aneurysm, and this time goes off on a tangent about the announcement of a game he's not thrilled with. We tackle Sterns Wifi updates and it's consequences, tournament hacks using the same system, the effect of last years Sales Tax and talk about A LOT of games that have hit the market since we started this jalopy just over *1 year ago. We hope you enjoy this unique, special edition of our podcast and thanks for joining us on the ride.

    If you would like to be immortalized in the annals (not anals, one "N" makes a huge difference people) of our podcast, please consider contacting us via the Google Voice number below or send a clear audio file to our email account and leave an intro that we can use for the next show.

    Hey fellas, that episode really f%$ked with my head. Lol. I jumped in the car, not really paying attention. Pressed play on your podcast. Within a couple minutes I thought I was in the twilight zone. I was googling willy wonka leaks, the ring release info, I was freaking out. Then I stopped and went back and read the title and relistened to the intro. Duh!! Finally realizing this was a creative spin on the future. Too funny. Very creative and great episode. Keep up the great work.

    HA! I am afraid that you will not be alone in your confusion. A lot of us who listen to podcasts multi task when doing so, and I can imagine this might cause "War of the Worlds" type hysteria.

    I'll be giggling on the sidelines.

    Thanks for listening my friend! Glad you enjoyed it.
