    Come on guys, it's not Yoda!

    Or is it?

    No Zack, no it isn't.

    The show takes place 5 years after ROTJ (the movie he died in)...

    His nickname is Baby Yoda. We cannot stop the Internet, we can only ride along the current. The Child will never catch on at this point, it's too late.

    Quoted from DennisK:

    His nickname is Baby Yoda. We cannot stop the Internet, we can only ride along the current. The Child will never catch on at this point, it's too late.

    I think the idea is that Yoda's species was never defined in the cannon of Star wars so as of now the species is being defined as "Yoda".
    Therefore a baby of that species with no name of it's own is referred to as a "Baby Yoda".

    I'm sure I'm butchering that explanation but hopefully you get the idea.

    #406 78 days ago

    It’s Yoda’s clone. Therefore, Yoda.

    Zach, Love ya, mean it. But you are so wrong about the Beastie Boys....

    #412 73 days ago

    Please tell me you both knew “A Little Help from my Friends” was originally sung by the Beatles. You knew that right?!?!?

    Yes I mentioned I thought it was a Beatles song originally

    Quoted from LOTR_breath:

    Am I though? Much respect for the group and their work. It’s just not my cup of tea

    #417 68 days ago

    Please please tell me that mom and dad aren’t getting divorced.

    It’s like when Balki and Larry went their separate ways. They were such Perfect Strangers.

    #418 68 days ago

    Wow, what a week for podcasts shutting down. Thanks for all the free entertainment. I can't believe it's been almost two years -- time is going way too fast. I need to find a way to slow it down somehow (maybe stare at the microwave as my food cooks more).

    #419 68 days ago

    Wait... what??? TWIP Podcast is shutting down??

    #420 68 days ago
    Quoted from 27dnast:

    Wait... what??? TWIP Podcast is shutting down??

    Episode 79 is the last with myself and Dennis Kriesel as hosts.

    #421 68 days ago

    Just saw a few other pinball content folks calling it quits. Seems like this is too coincidental that so many are bailing all within a day or two and maybe whats really happening is they are joining forces to create one super pinball podcast to rule them all...

    Head 2 Head, TWIP, Special When Lit, Pinball Supernova, maybe some others I haven't heard about yet. Just feels strange its all coming down at once.

    #422 68 days ago

    I think you're on to something, Deadflip just posted on Facebook:

    "Honestly it makes a LOT of sense for all these podcasts to close their doors and start a single network together.

    Content dilution is a real thing.

    Excited to see what they all have planned together!! Thanks for the pods!"

    Hope it's true!!!

    #423 68 days ago

    Not buying it... I call shenanigans. SHENANIGANS!

    #424 68 days ago
    Quoted from fooflighter:

    Content dilution is a real thing.

    That has been a problem since the start of podcasts. How many times can you interview Mr. X ? How many times can you show game Y ?

    Can get boring real fast when it's the same old same old.

    Best wishes to those in the future avoiding this.

    LTG : )

    #425 68 days ago

    Whatever you guys are cooking up, I’d like to offer a huge thanks for the entertainment and information. You made every road trip more bearable.

    Tony Bennett is sad today.

    Really loved all of the great TWIP shows these past couple of years. Sorry to see it end.
    Thanks to Jeff and Zach and Dennis and all of the other hosts for their contributions.

    (Dana is still pissed at the screaming goat, though...)

    makes perfect sense.

    Quoted from ZMeny:

    Such an abrupt ending, are you both reporting to prison or something? TWIP podcast was highly entertaining with its many new and often misdirected segments. Lots of interviews, singing, voices/impersonations and most importantly good times. TWIP set the bar for podcasting professionalism. Good luck with your next ventures.

    #429 68 days ago
    Quoted from ZMeny:

    Oh no! I look forward to the show!

    Man, feels like losing good friends.

    I hope you guys continue to host your back catalog. I miss having access to the robcraig Silverball Podcast (which was phenomenal)... and c2cpinball is often not available through Podcast garden.

    Thanks Zach and Dennis for all of the great pinball chatter.

    #430 68 days ago

    Bummer but good luck to you all in future endeavours.
    Gonna miss this one, thanks for filling an hour of my work toil every week.
    Hope you get your TWIPY on the way out!
    Long live PMT!

    Now I just want to hear Kriesel karaoke the chorus to goodbye stranger.

    Now there’s an interesting thought!

    “One podcast to rule them all....”

    #432 68 days ago

    I personally hope you free up time to do more SDTM, although I didn't get that sense from your "what's coming in 2020" episode.

    You and Greg bantering on youtube is my "go to" when I am messing with pins in the shop. I can only re-watch those episodes about 4 times each, so I am almost at my limit lol.

    Good luck moving forward to new and greener pastures my friend.

    Quoted from jeffspinballpalace:

    Such an abrupt ending, are you both reporting to prison or something?

    Haha, it's funny to me to hear it described as abrupt when I felt Zach was showing warning signs for so long now! Then again, I was informed a couple months ago that we'd be stopping in early 2020 so my insider knowledge may be blinding me a bit on that. Suffice to say I was given advanced notice (not that I really needed to prepare anything; my Go Bag was always packed for when I no longer provided whatever Jeff and Zach wanted out of me for the show).

    Thanks everyone for the kind words.

    #434 68 days ago

    It was fun while it lasted. Thanks Zach and Dennis and all the guest hosts! I enjoyed every episode.

    #435 68 days ago

    Anyone see this video floating around ?

    https://fbwat.ch/1Ga40fxZN815YBqR

    Seems like a bigger play is underway... please dear God do not let this be owned and paid for by manufacturers. It’s already hard enough to get open honest conversations in podcasts.

    Wait what? Say it ain't so, daddy needs his Market Trends!

    #438 68 days ago

    If I can't listen to it on my ancient Zune HD, then it ain't content.

    #439 68 days ago

    Thanks for all the great listens. Your podcast was informative, fun, hilarious and just all around great content. Zach you truly are a great entertainer and looking forward to what you have coming next. I will miss the screaming goat.

    #440 68 days ago

    IF this is a merger of talent and resources this is Brilliant! Let’s be honest other then tabloid speculation there really isn’t That much to talk about in pinball. Consolidating marketing, content, sponsors, personalities, and audience time/interest would be a smart forward play.

    #441 68 days ago

    I'm glad I could be one of the final nails in the coffin...

    #442 67 days ago

    i don't think consolidation offers much benefit to listeners. I am sure the income will be as good or better than now for podcasters, so they have an incentive, but at what costs? Podcasters lose creative control of their show format and they will need to perform on a regular schedule whereas before they could set their show's frequency. The biggest issue is a perception that hosts with a large sponsor are not unbiased. This is always the case and it is especially true if the deep state is the one pulling the strings. Think of the five podcasts that have announced they are closing doors or shifting to video/streaming, they are all very different and unique. Now say four join forces on a new show, it will have one format and style of handling things. We'll get homogeneity, not art. However, trying something new and streamlined might give podcasters a shot in the arm by reducing their workload, so wishing them the best. I'll keep telling myself:

    If there is no struggle, there is no progress. ...
    .
    Progress is impossible without change, and those who cannot change their minds cannot change anything.

    #443 67 days ago

    Thanks for the show, it was usually informative (except for maybe the marketplace trends segment LOL)....hope to hear ya soon, Zach and Dennis! (and maybe others)....

    #444 67 days ago

    So... I think 1 of 2 things is happening here.

    Either:

    Good: Many different podcasts are joining together for one super-show that we will all love and appreciate.
    Bad: The various podcasts have all received a legal notice from a licensor or manufacturing company that if they continue to operate and badmouth certain manufacturers, they will be sued.

    My money is on the good option.

    Either way, we have appreciated the free entertainment over the years! I will cry myself to sleep in my TWIP shirt tonight so the logo is close to my heart.

    Thanks!

    #445 67 days ago

    Thanks for all your efforts.

    Hope it wasn't all the nay saying that you're not objective anymore because you're a distributor.
    That is alie and everyone knows that; you never were objective to begin with!

    I just suppose it's gotten a bit much now with your whole live revolving around pinball, being at some show every weekend and having to record a podcast and a youtube show...

    So I wish you the best of luck!

    BUT what does that mean for TWIP? Will it continue?
    Jeff missed 2 mondays this month allready!

    More of a website question than a podcast one: did they ever announce the winners of the Color DMD contest around Thanksgiving?

    Jeff isn’t going anywhere. If I know him, he’s working countless hours prepping for the next TWIP news for everybody and the upcoming TWIPYs. All will continue and all will be great

    I'd have a suggestion then...

    Do a podcast whenever there's no TWIP.
    So, around ~5 times a year, whenever Jeff can't spare the time.
