Description

Two regular guys who just happen to love pinball and also own microphones. Join us on our journey!

Episode Date
Ep. 37 A Devil WITH A Cause
29:14

In episode 37 of the Slap Save Pinball Podcast, Matt and Jason announce their plans to work with Project Pinball to place a pinball machine in a St. Louis Children's Hospital named "Cardinal Glennon" that Jason reveres for it's important role in his past.  See the summary below for the details.  We also discuss the trials and tribulations of our first stream last week, talk float trips, family trees that model flag poles AND we have a 2016 edition of Flip, Bolt or Torch!  We plan to stream Gorgar this week to promote our campaign described below.  More details will follow as they become available.  

The summary of our plans:

Jason and Matt will be donating all funds from a sale of a very special collector quality/near collector quality Gorgar and many extras to Project Pinball to help fund them placing a machine in a local children's hospital.  It will be listed on Pinside and Facebook Marketplace in the next couple of days.  

It has a clear coated playfield, beautiful backglass, new flipper mechs and a nearly perfect cabinet.  I plan to list it for sale and donate 100% of the proceeds to Project Pinball for the purpose of funding the placement of a new machine in the hospital.  I plan on asking 2500K OBO in the hopes that someone is generous enough to offer that, or more, to know that they helped make this happen.  In addition to the great machine you will take home, we plan to:
 
-Provide a premium framed certificate commemorating the sale of the machine and describing the funding and thanking the purchaser. 
-A public display of the receipt showing the ENTIRE amount and 100% raised for the machine was given DIRECTLY to Project Pinball.   (A pure donation, not raffle purchases)
-A HUGE swag pack of everything I can get my hands on.  Other manufacturers are helping by providing giveaways that can be bundled with the machine to help in interest and encourage a generous donation in its sale price.   I am working on more.  The machine will list very soon!  
-An offer, if the end purchaser desires, to be interviewed by Matt and I on our podcast and thank them personally.  
-Thank yous, repeatedly, to all vendors, manufacturers, media and collectors that either offer something to bundle with the machine, make a donation towards our goal or promote it through mentions or articles.  
-If the buyer wishes to pick up the machine in person, I will put them up in a local hotel, and offer my game room for their use the entire time they are in St. Louis in addition to joining us in person, on a special stream (our stream should be launching this week).   In addition, join Matt and I for dinner and drinks.  We will pick up the tab.  
-More that has yet to be determined I hope.  It will be a helluva deal for $2,500 bucks.  I hope so much so, that people quickly make that price laughable.
 
NOTE: There has been some confusion about the machine being placed in the hospital.  Gorgar is NOT being placed in a children's hospital.  Gorgar is being SOLD to give the funds to project pinball so they can choose the machine that is appropriate for Cardinal Glennon.  
 
If you would like to help us help some very deserving children take their minds off some of the battles they face, but do not wish to be in the running for Gorgar, please consider a donation, large or small, to Project Pinball.  In the memo or notes for you donation, please mention the Slap Save Pinball Podcast campaign or "Cardinal Glennon" so the funds go to this particular machine.  

Need a new pinball machine, or perhaps an Escalera?  Make sure you give Zach Meny a call at Flip N' Out pinball, the Premiere Sponsor of the Slap Save Pinball Podcast.  The guy is absolutely wrecking it when it comes to service, selection and a willingness to go the extra mile.

Ep. 36 Dutch Greed, Upcoming Stream News & Name That Pin!
31:23

In Episode 36 of the Slap Save Pinball Podcast, Matt & Jason discuss the greed in the air surrounding Dutch Pinball, details about the upcoming streaming schedule and we play the popular Name That Pin!  

It's Jason's turn to discpher 1 second long clips of pin sounds and guess the machine.  It is agonizing with some trademark complaining, according to Matt.  We also dive into our thoughts on flippant flippers trying to make the worst of a bad situation regarding Dutch Pinball and The Big Lebowski.  Thanks for joining us!  

FYI:  We plan to start the official Slap Save Pinball Stream starting Thursday August 15th at 7:30 PM Central TimeAdd us on Twitch to get live updates ( slapsavepinballpodcast ). More details to follow.  Swing by, hang with us, have a beer, and lets talk, and play, some pinball.

Ep. 35 Ten Compelling Questions In Pinball
37:11

In Episode 35 of the infamous (like the 3 Amigos, we hear that is even BETTER than famous) Slap Save Pinball Podcast, Matt and Jason discuss the 10 Compelling Questions in Pinball.  Laughs, lunacy and lame, lazy luddite lamenting.  We obsess over everything pinball... and words that start with "L" apparently.  Love ya, ya loons!  Ludicrous.

Ep 33 Prototypes: What Might Have Been
49:32

In Ep 33 of the Slap Save Pinball Podcast, Matt and Jason discuss Prototypes and What Might Have Been.  Its a feature about hard to find, interesting, failed attempts to shake things up.  Speaking of failing, this was take 2, because Matt left the memory card in a tent somewhere in Michigan, so we had to re-record.  Matt has been placed on super secret pinball probation and swears he will atone for his blatant transgression by allowing Jason to swat him with ham while he dances to "Careless Whisper."  We will then call it even.  No harm no foul. We also talk about an incredible pickup of an incredible game at a Pinball mecca.  We discuss our upcoming streaming plans of off the beaten path titles AND we dive into "Flip, Bolt or Torch" '95 edition, the "favorite" game of my uncle Terry, who hates pinball, me, my aunt... and only pretends to listen to this "godforsaken podcast that is an epic waste of time."     

Unhealthy horse and "little people" fetishes, Windows 95 vs 3.1, Kabuki, Baywatch art inspired by lower digits of humped mammals, yes, we have it all.

Ep. 31 Why I Am Canceling Wonka w/ Special Guest Host Zach Meny
59:58

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
43:42

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!!!!!

We are glad you decided to join us!

Ep. 24 Showdown
47:20

**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.

MGC, Black Knight SoR & Willy Wonka First Plays & Impressions
34:55

In episode 20 of the Slap Save Pinball Podcast, Matt and Jason update you on the road from MGC (Midwest Gaming Classic, despite the fact that Jason called it "convention" throughout the recording) in Milwaukee.  We setup an impromptu podcast recording session with our travel recorder while fueled by a few adult beverages.   We summarize our thoughts on our time with the two newest releases in the pinball hobby, Stern's Black Knight Sword of Rage and Jersey Jack Pinball's Willy Wonka!  We also discuss the pros and cons of streaming becoming the default choice for manufacturers to release a new game.  We hope that you enjoy this special episode that lacks some polish, but makes up for it in timely opinions on the games everyone is dying to know more about!

Ep. 14 Extreme Theme Stunting Pinball Ideas & Bad Location Pinball
41:08

Welcome fellow addicts of the silver sphere!  In this 14th episode of the Slap Save Pinball Podcast we dive into our ideas for Extreme Theme Stunt Pinball (not entirely original, but like Lee Majors, we can do it better, stronger and faster). Chris loses his feces over the state of some location pinball, during which, his loss of $.50 almost causes an inter-dimensional black hole of anger that was thankfully saved by some guy who snapped his finger with a larger more blingy, Michael Jackson-esque glove.   We chime in on the JJP Pirates "debate" that is swirling around like a stale beef biscuit.  We talk pinball, we self medicate our colds the only way we know how, we have too many laughs, too much fun and Chris still hates my creative decisions.  :-D

Contact us via any of the following.  Oh, and for god sake, don't do anything stupid trying to impress anyone with dangerous pinball machine playing.  It won't work, and people will laugh at your stupidity.  We would only attempt anything with qualified personnel who are trained EMTs and Jedi masters. Given the Jedi shortage, we may have to settle for playing in our basements standing on one leg.

36:27

In this Episode 13 of the Slap Save Pinball Podcast, we tear the roof off this mother$%#^@ and lay down the gauntlet on Corporate Paywalls and cheap Alligator Clips on mods.  We also pretend to be civil for a while and discuss the merits of Pinball Charities.  Chris then describes his Munster obsession, we tell you some great places to play pinball if you ever roll through St. Louis and all of this while running from the scary big green guy with the "huge organ."  (Frank from the Monster Bash band of course, where was your mind at?)

Ep. 12 A Guest Host, Jason's thoughts on Munsters after 40ish games and a TWIPY tantrum...
42:22

In this 12th episode of the Slap Save Pinball Podcast, we welcome a guest host, Matt Koenen who stands in for a sickly, or possibly federally detained Chris.  

We talk about some minor quibbles with a new Monster Bash LE, Jason's early thoughts on a Munster's Pro that he put several dozen games on, the absurdity and sour grapes that have surrounded the TWIPY vote, and Matt and I unanimously torch the same game from the wonderful year of 1993.  Will you agree with our Flip, Bolt and Torch '93 edition? Sit down, strap in and hold on. 

It's a HOBBY people.  ENJOY IT.  FOR F$^&# SAKES!  Haha

Ep. 11 Valentines Day & Flip, Bolt or Torch: 1989 edition
38:43

In episode 11 of the Slap Save Pinball Podcast, Chris and Jason get back to being friendly after the senseless friction of 10 (with just a touch of liquor to encourage our creativity).  We have a blast and discuss some late week news, dive into our NEWEST SEGMENT, FBT 1989 edition where we pick the games we feel stuck out for a particular year.  Chris then drops some pinball term explanations with his trademark saltiness for those still working on their pinball degree.  Jason discusses his surprise love of the Merc with a mouth, and curses a particular game that uses a obscure mutated fruit for its main antagonist.  

Where else can you get this sort of pinball entertainment, news and useless info?  Well, damn near everywhere, but no one does US as well as... us.  Join us for the ride.  Pull up your podcatcher and strap in for 30mins of pinball pulpit time with a bonus meltdown of humor and ZERO class.     

Be sure you check out our go to source for all the news in pinball worth reading about and distilled into a perfect format over at This Week In Pinball!  It is the best way to keep up with news as it happens!

In episode 10 of The Slap Save Pinball Podcast, we finally have a true showdown.  In the past, Chris has used "investment" in describing pinball machines, which was the equivalent of nails scraping down a chalkboard to Jason.  We throw down the gauntlet on the subject.  Voices raise, some of the points and arguments go so deep in the weeds that it pops out the other side, and generally speaking, nothing is accomplished.  It is entertaining, if nothing else. 

Who needs a brickshot when we are BOTH yelling!?  The show starts off well.  We talk about a pindig that Jason had last Friday, scream through the news, and play two voicemails from listeners with questions; One from a mysterious stranger and a second one from 'Sammy Pinballs," our new unofficial spokesperson and mascot.

Ep. 9 Pinball's Popularity/Longevity & Giveaway Winner Announced!
39:10

In episode #9 of the Slap Save Pinball Podcast we discuss the response to our last show and our BS we were tossing around, a gathering at Chris's house (he is somehow free to roam the building without a straight jacket or Hannibal Lector mask), we announce the winner of our PINSTADIUM giveaway, we deep dive in our opinions on the reason for pinball's skyrocketing popularity and Chris, due to heavy medication that prevents Hulk style rage, goes on a relatively benign instruction of a few pinball terms to help out newer folks to the hobby.  Surprise, he still somehow goes rogue.  Thanks for joining us on this ride and we would love to hear from you through any of the channels below!

Ep. 8/60: Back to the Future
27:17

In episode 60 of the Slap Save Pinball Podcast we look back at 2019 and summarize the current state of pinball.  Chris has somehow still avoided a temper induced aneurysm, and this time goes off on a tangent about the announcement of a game he's not thrilled with.  We tackle Sterns Wifi updates and it's consequences, tournament hacks using the same system, the effect of last years Sales Tax and talk about A LOT of games that have hit the market since we started this jalopy just over *1 year ago.  We hope you enjoy this unique, special edition of our podcast and thanks for joining us on the ride. Sorry for the issues with Chris's sound quality.  We have it figured out and it will be fixed in the next episode.

Ep. 7: A Limited Edition Betrayal and Giveaway Announcement!!!
39:47

In episode 7 of the Slap Save Pinball Podcast, we talk slingers, announce our first giveaway(see below), Chris vents about 500, err 600 Munster LE's and we talk about what we look for in used games.  There may be a mention of Dutch hookers and Greg Bone's back problems, although we do not believe they are related. In this episode's easter egg, which may be a thing moving forward, there is a guest voice of a caller who thoughtfully called in to our voice line with his articulate review (edited for length and entertainment purposes.)  Houston... you have a problem.

Ep. 6: Munsters Reveal & Our Thoughts, Undercabinet Lighting & More Of The Usual Shenanigans...
33:06

In a slightly delayed episode 6 of The Slap Save Pinball Podcast we discuss the Stern reveal of the Munsters pinball.  Chris is in a great mood because of it, but is his expletive count less or more?  Hint: We have new record.  Chris thinks undercabinet lighting is "magically delicious"... kind of.  He also does a special edition version of "Marketplace Trends" made infamous by Zach at SDTM pinball show and the TWIP podcast.  If you haven't done so already, be sure to place your TWIPY vote at https://www.thisweekinpinball.com/twipy-2018-ballot/   Contact us at any of the links provided in the show notes!  Happy flippin'!

Ep. 5: Pinball Sale Deal Breakers, Awful Facebook Sellers and Steve Ritchie Digs One Of Our Wives!
31:39

In the 5th episode of the Slap Save Pinball Podcast we talk Stern and our tough love for them, speed read the news, and aimlessly complain about meaningless things like the "first world victims" we are.  Chris skewers bad facebook selllers, replacement legs and makes a mockery of one of the most famous lines in cartoon history.  Oh, and there is the saga of... his toilet seat.  Eeesh, good thing we are too late for a Twipy nomination!   Suit up and join two irreverent idiots talk about pinball for a half hour.  We have increased girth at the expense of length!

Ep. 4: Quasi-Resolutions, the Consequences of Flipping in Pinball and Risky Bathrooms
29:39

In the 4th Episode of the Slap Save Pinball Podcast, we discuss our pinball happenings lately, some news that is too hard to gather on our own, resolutions (or at least Chris's idea of what that means), Flipping in Pinball and its consequences, and Chris once again goes on an expletive filled rant about... lockdown bars and shooter lane buttons?  My censor button finger has a blister.  I need a power-slushie.  Stay frosty fellow flippers!

Ep.3: Xmas wishes for pinball
29:15

In our 3rd episode of the Slap Save Podcast we discuss our wishes and desires for every pinball manufacturer for the Christmas season.  We also get caught up with "Gout-aplooza," the crazy values of mods (at least by some sellers), opinions of black and white pinball machines and we play our first feedback left on OUR feedback line by the distinguished Mr. S. Johnson IV. Don't forget your rubbers, silicone or poly, whichever you "think" is best.  :-)

Ep.2: Rubbers, Gout and Laughs
26:31

In our 2nd episode of Pinball conversation, we talk preferred flipper rubber, run through the news like our $#@ is on fire, go on an expletive laden (but censored) tirade about a... Christmas ornament(?) and talk the "gout," with our resident lunch lady. Join us weekly!  We'd love to get your feedback, questions, or even general ramblings about the merits of processed cheese spread as a playfield polish.
