Eclectic Gamers Podcast

Pinball and video games. We're a mixed gaming podcast, but pinball and video games are our bread and butter, and our two permanent segments. Pinball generally receives the most attention of the two.

Pinball and video games. We’re a mixed gaming podcast, but pinball and video games are our bread and butter, and our two permanent segments. Pinball generally receives the most attention of the two. We also, on occasion, cover other types of gaming (namely tabletop games such as RPGs and card games). We aren’t known as eclectic for nothing!

Insightful Unbiased Content

Insightful unbiased content with no drama and always respectful of other people opinions.
Content sharing is the main driver not podcaster’s ego or profile puffing and is not just a regurgitation of others content which is not dumbed down or sensationalized.
Denis & Tony are the New York Times or BBC of pinball podcasts.

I’m only really interested in the pinball side of this podcast, so I usually tune out after the first half. But Tony and Dennis are very knowledgeable hosts who bring considerable insights to the current state of the gaming hobby. Both have a very unique personality; Dennis has a dry wit and can be a bit acerbic and Tony is a little more diplomatic and magnanimous. Makes for a very interesting and informative show.

After hearing Dennis Kriesel on TWIP podcast, I started to listen to Eclectic Gamers and was immediately drawn to their conversations. I find Dennis and Tony Kurkowski to be cerebral in their approach to the discussion of pinball, videos, and board games as their discussions/opinions are intelligent, thoughtful, objective, and fact based. They are not looking to entertain you with shocking pronouncements or with irrelevant humor. As a team, Dennis and Tony are a much better than when Dennis teams with Zach Meny on The Pinball Show (probably where most pinball podcast listeners have heard Dennis). In part, it is because Dennis takes the lead in guiding the conversations on Eclectic Gamers instead of following along and playing the role of commentator/straight man (though he is actually the funniest one on the show) as he does on TPS. Since Special When Lit stopped its run, Eclectic Gamers has become my favorite place to go for pinball discussions, which comes at the beginning of their show so you can jump off if you are not interested in video games. Well done gentlemen!

I really enjoy EGP’s conversation which a little more thoughtful than most podcasts. A good mix of Pinball and Gaming makes it different. Also, I’m pretty sure Tony is a murderer…
