Ep. 55 Slap Save Interviews Stern’s Mike Vinikour

January 23, 2020

In episode 55 of the Slap Save Pinball Podcast, Jason interviews Stern Associate Game Developer, jack of all trades and all around nice guy, Mike Vinikour.  We talk Stranger Things, a day in the life of a Stern employee, the respect he has for his fellow team members, great (and not so great) things about the hobby, and his bucket list.  Thanks for listening!  Now more than ever, be kind to each other.  It seems it takes more effort to be a villain than it does to be a decent human being, but some enjoy the work.
