Arcades are quickly becoming relics of our past and along with them, one of the earliest forms of arcade gaming – pinball. This week, special guest Chad Concelmo joins us to visit the Pacific Pinball Museum and learn about this history and art form that is creating pinball tables.
Special thanks this week to our great friend, Chad Concelmo, for joining us for a trip down memory lane and to the museum to play some great tables! You can read his article, “The Joy of Pinball” over at Destructoid.
For more information about the history of pinball, check out the Pacific Pinball Museum in Alameda – we highly recommend a visit and please, consider a donation while there to help preserve this awesome part of gaming history!
It’s that time of year again to stock up on goodies to hand out to dressed up kids all over your neighborhood. But why are these candies so weird now?! Join us as we taste some Halloween candy, discuss our favorites from childhood and talk through the weird flavors and names of today’s treats.
This week was disgusting fun because we got to watch each other react to some truly horrible unique Halloween candy. While we found some that we liked, I think we’ll be sticking with our usual favorites this season.
Check out our Instagram for some fun clips of us taste-testing some of the candy from this week’s episode.
This week, we look inside ourselves to find more about who we are… literally! We’ve taken the home DNA tests from Ancestry.com and 23andme to find out more about our possible genealogy and ethnic makeup. We’ll discuss how the services compare and what we found!
We’re picking up our chat about old family holiday traditions – and who better to talk to about it than our Moms?! Our Moms take over the storytelling this week as they give us a rundown on what we were like as kids, what we wanted for Christmas and the lengths they went to to make our holidays special. A warning for parents: while there’s nothing explicit in this episode, it’s not one you’ll want to listen to with your kids (if you know what we mean)!
We take a quick trip down memory lane as we talk about some of the traditions our families had during the holiday season and the history behind some of the places we visited. True stories of planes crashing into churches, fires destroying buildings where you now shop and Mike teases us about “The Tree Whisperer.”
