I forget what thread I was responding to, but awhile back I threatened to bust a podcast move just to see if'n I could.
So here it is. I waited until Spotify had me in their index for to post. I got 4 episodes live, but I figger until I go back to work in 6 weeks I could prolly do at least one a day, if there's demand.

I just put up four episodes for samples of the wares. Uncle Pinball is my nickname with my nieces and nephews.

Apple is still giving me the once over before I'm live on iTunes. Mebbe a couple of days.

Like I say in the first episode, I have never actually downloaded and/or listened to a podcast. Way too ADHD for that shtuff. And I can promise that I will never mention any other podcast because the above.

Fire away with the comments, if you are so inclined. I've taught middle school for 26+ years, so my skin is thick.

My pinbrotato o-din gets a little feature in Episode 4. Thanks for the Teacher's Pet, Cowboy!

Have fun always.

Looks like I got Three! Wow.
Apple approved of me, so there's that. They don't have the Teacher's Pet episode up yet, but...

Next up is the story of Me 'n Lou 'n The Hulk.

Up to 10 downloads! Baby, I'ma Star.
Promise I won't ever mention the K-person since I wouldn't even know how to pronounce it...

Episode 5 is live with Part One of the Lou Ferrigno Saga, an almost-legendary Pinside thread:

and the one that turned into a TedShred Pic Thread:
https://pinside.com/pinball/forum/topic/lou-ferrigno-update

Should be live on iTunes in a few hours...

#4 73 days ago

I'll give ya a try if you ever show up on podbean. Not sure how that all works to get on there, but that's the main way I listen to podcasts on my phone.

#6 73 days ago

Sweet. Downloading them now. Will give them a listen tomorrow.

Plus, o-din's A-okay in my book, so that's a plus one for you all ready!

#10 71 days ago

Episode 14 is up! Uncle Pinball is trying to coax our Pinbromigo O-Din into an interview about all things pinball and otherwise.
He sez you can't handle the truth! Mebbe he's right.
Meanwhile your Pinball Uncle spews his 2-4 cents worth on whatever was at the top of Pinside at like 8:30pm Pacific. Fun!

At one I started two-fisted drinking;
I was three sheets to the wind by four o'clock...

#47 22 days ago

Hey, Hey, Hey Pinbrotatoes! Uncle Pinball just dropped Episode #23 with some FINE rambling about going back to work, living in a 7th grader's vision of the world, guns and idiots, Tim Arnold again, and the PPM (Pacific Pinball Museum) warehouse (sigh). It's my first real Friday in almost six months so there's bound to be some tangents. LOL.

Also... I just talked to my pinbromigo Kyle Spiteri, pinball repair star, who now works R & D for Marco's Amusements and does live-streaming tech videos for them, and he agreed to be my guest on a near future Uncle Pinball Show! So stay tuned and subscribe however you do. Looks like we're gonna chat this weekend, so you got that to look forward to.

And those of you who are Instagrammers might want to follow me there too: @mrcinslo.

If'n anybody has questions for somebody on the inside of Marco Specialties, doing repairs, doing R&D, doing pinball, post 'em here. Kyle is stoked to do it, and we're gonna try to work our way through a few beers since it's been awhile since he moved from the SF Bay area to South Carolina, so plenty of time for questions from the crowd.

He's the R&D guy... Bring 'em on!

#49 22 days ago

This here is Kyle. (No, not the bald-headed dude!) If anybody want me to ask him questions tonight for Uncle Pinball's 'Cast, post 'em today!

#50 21 days ago

Shoot, meant to ask you these yesterday, but I've been pretty darn busy. Oh well, you can always save them for next time.

------
How did Kyle get his start in Pinball, and how/when did he start learning repair skills?

How did he end up working for Marco?

Is Imoto as cool in person as she is on camera/stream?

What's Kyle's favorite game at the moment? What's his favorite era of pin?

What are Kyle's favorite type of pins to work on?

Any tech work that Kyle hates to do, or loves to do?

LED vs Incandescent for older games?

Favorite thing about working for Marco?

Least favorite thing about working for Marco?

Most satisfying part of working on a pin? Mine's when you finally get it back to together and flip the switch and everything works.
