In this episode, we have a fantastic interview with Annie Spiritos of the Rusty Quarters Arcade. Annie and her husband are living the collector’s dream by opening a retro arcade and turning their hobby into a money-making business! Also in this episode we discuss our love of the oft-neglected electromechanical pinball machine. Listen along as Preston and Patrick talk about recent gameroom stories, acquisitions, and anectdotes as well as how the hobbyist community has pulled together to help one of their own. Be sure to listen for your chance to win a set of AC/DC pint glasses to booze it up next to your new Stern pinball.
