Looking for a different pinball Podcast which isn’t about current events or pinball news? Silverball Chronicles is a monthly podcast for the true pinball nerd that enjoys learning more about the complicated dynamics, politics and characters that created their favourite pinball machines. Join Ron and Dave as they stumble through pinball history mispronouncing names, chronicling designers, telling war stories, and digging up strange and obscure facts; all while paying homage to the
hobby of pinball.
I’ve been listening my way through past episodes and having a great time. As someone new to the hobby, this podcast has deepened my interest and I’ve learned so many things that I wouldn’t have otherwise. The episodes take a lot longer for me to get through than others because I’m constantly stopping to lookup the games mentioned so I can have a frame of reference. Sure, occasionally one of the hosts inserts extra u’s into words where they shouldn’t be – but no one is perfect. Keep up the great work.
A fantastic show on the history of pinball!
I love your podcast the Silverball Chronicles! Bought one of your mugs today, over att Silverball Swag, all the way to Sweden. Your podcast is a great spurten to learn all kind of things history related in pinball. The dynamic between the two hosts David and Ron is great. I love the way they, interact and how they, mostly Dave, misspronounces most of the names. And all the bickering ”abuuut” the Canadian-American stuff, gags and jokes. I find that kind of things hillarious!
The show is a nice mix of history, full of tonnes of anecdotes, obscure facts and humor that keeps the show going. Keep up the good work, guys!
Quality has declined since early episodes
Are used to be a favorite podcast but now not so much. It’s mostly two guys reading from Internet sources and prior interviews. It’s a fine time killer on a long drive or doing house chores.
The Canadian guy used to be a good lesson but now he’s become to hackey and jokey.
The beautiful history of Pinball.
Hello from Belgium.
Because I’m quite new in this fascinating hobby, fell in love with pinball in the first part of the Corona pandemic, I have much to learn about the history and the important peoples who made pinball to what it is today. Ron and Dave, love your podcast… Thank you for all your time and effort! Grts Koen Lauwaert.
Educational AND entertaining!
The episodes are pure pleasure, a comforting tale by the fireside, laying out the facts of the pinball industry history. Just what you want from a podcast. Respectful but also playful and honest with the subject matter too.
