Podcast Episode 23 – The Video Craze

It’s been a busy month for the Gameroom Junkies. From a fruitless search by Patrick for arcades in England to the start of a new gameroom after a move for Preston, the boys have been hard at work. The regular shop talk this week is filled with updates, funny stories, interesting collectors, and even a few tricks of the trade. Filmaker and collector Dave Danzara stops by to talk to us about his upcoming documentary film – The Video Craze (Be sure to check out the film’s extended trailer below), and young pinball phenom Dante stops by to talk about the effects of pinball on the younger generation. Lastly, we take a dip in the mailbag before putting episode 23 down in the books. Drop a quarter in this one, won’t you?

  1. Good job by Dante, I like to call him our kid ball wizard because I was one of the person’s who was in final round when he won the lost ark tournament. The kid can play and rob needs to take him up to papa to compete and am sure he would do real good.

  2. Dante is the (little) man! I hope that Rob’s fear that the pupil may surpass teacher doesn’t lead him to hold him back from the promised land.
