Ep. 31 Why I Am Canceling Wonka w/ Special Guest Host Zach Meny

Ep. 31 Why I Am Canceling Wonka w/ Special Guest Host Zach Meny

July 7, 2019

In episode 31, it is zero hour and the Wonkas are rolling out to standard buyers and the LE's are just around the corner.  After a change in heart, Jason zips on his flame retardant suit to prepare for the aftermath of sharing his thoughts on Willy Wonka and reasons for canceling.  Koenen is out of town so Special Guest Host Zach "everything I touch turns to gold/Midas" Meny joins us as co-host!  We ask Zach some questions, he offers a great prize to a listener (instructions for entry are in the podcast) related to a apparently new VERY popular game segment we ran last week called NAME THAT PIN.  We also generally just act like the silver ball buffoons we are, but if you have been on this ride before, you know that is the ONLY way we roll.     

Episode rundown:

  • Brief discussion of what we have been up to
  •  Industry happenings
  • Segment: “Getting to know you” a deep dive into the enigma that is Midas Meny
  • Our Main Feature: “Why I canceled Willy Wonka”
  • Name that pin with Zach

Ep. 29 Mistakes in Pinball & Real Pinheads of Genius Pt. I

June 24, 2019

In Ep. 29 of the Slap Save Pinball Podcast Matt and Jason embark on a discussion of mistakes made in pinball.  Common ones, ones we have made, they are everywhere.  You either make mistakes in pinball, or you lie.  We also have some fun with Pinheads of Genius, made in the style of the famous beer commercials that are now making a comeback in slightly different form.  We figured, why stop with the internet.  Let's do some for OUR hobby and passion.  This is the result.  We apologize for any hearing damage, as Jason is a podcaster, not a singer.  You have been warned, but it was fun, and funny as hell working with Matt to write this.  We ALSO have a Flip, Bolt or Torch 1987 edition!  Thanks for jumping onboard.  Climb out of the basement, grab one of those bendy straws, and LET'S DO THIS!!!!!

Prologue: Real Pinheads of Genius: "Mr. Doesn't Bathe For a Pinball Show"

Ep. 24 Showdown

Ep. 24 Showdown

May 12, 2019

**The Slap Save Pinball Podcast is rated PG-13 by the MPAA (Misguided Pinball A-Holes of America)*** 

Episode 24 of the Slap Save Pinball Podcast, Silver Ball Showdown.  Where EVERY moon is a full moon.  Jason Fowler, Matt Koenen and THE Christopher Franchi (and his partner in crime Barlow) talk pinball, drop some opinions AND some inside tidbits (including EPIC art from Leonardo Da Franchi).  This episode rundown:

1.) Industry News (or at least what little there is) including a discussion of Cosmic Carnival's latest improvements.

2.) Summary of What is New with Jason and Matt.

3.) The SILVER BALL SHOWDOWN, a new segment that features Matt and Jason having a debate over a Pinball Machine, in this case Twilight Zone with a twist.  Gillian, the gorgeous, red-headed nymphomaniac who lives in Jason's phone, randomly assigns one host who has to defend it, and one host who has to trash it by a coin flip.  We have a BLAST defending/attacking the game... and attacking each other.   WHO WON?  You can decide by telling us on our facebook page, emailing us, or calling our voice comment line and we will tally them and let you know next week.   

4.) Around The Playfield w/ Chris Franchi & Barlow has what might be the best segment yet with his trademark humor AND he drops some art that he had completed as a mock up to try to entice an IP to be made.  You will NOT want to miss this.  Make sure you contact Chris with your comments, questions and suggestions at playfieldquestions@gmail.com.  Also, check out our Facebook page to see the art referenced starting at 9pm eastern on Monday, May 13th.       

5.) The Full Plunge: Online Connectivity Matt & Jason talk about the potential upside and downside of online connectivity.
