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.
Listen to the Power of History
My personal favorite show on the current The Pinball Network line-up, David Dennis and Ron Hallett cover one of my favorite topics (pinball history) in an easy-to-follow, easy-to-digest, easy-to-enjoy way.
The show pacing has been solid, with the episodes generally marching through a chronological accounting of whatever specific topic they are tackling (with the occasional sub-journey or side-story added in where appropriate). David leads along the narrative thread but plays to Ron’s deep knowledge constantly. Their rapport is solid and the end result is a podcast that feels like a mix of two friends chatting with a side of entertaining lecture thrown in.
A special shout-out should be given to the obvious level of work this podcast takes. Multiple data sources and points of view are supplied. While there are several podcasts that have tackled pinball history (at least on an occasional, episodic basis), this appears to be the most fully realized attempt to date (discounting interview shows, which pace very differently even if they are dealing solely with historic pinball figures).
The best show on The Pinball Network
I cannot believe how much I enjoy listening to this podcast that is both informative and entertaining. David Dennis and Ron Hallett obviously spend a lot of time researching each topic providing the listener with historical information balanced with their own opinions of the games. It is obvious that they enjoy what they are doing. I have no idea how much editing goes into each episode, but the pacing is perfect. You would think these guys have worked together for years. It is, by far, the best show on The Pinball Network. Highly recommended for those interested in the history of pinball.
Super charming host
This is a great podcast for the true pinball nerd, that enjoys learning more about the complicated dynamics and characters that created their favourite pinball machines.
The host David Dennis is also the sexiest man alive and this is not his wife talking.
Great info and hosts, very entertaining
If you want a laid back discussion on historical topics of pinball, this is the place. The hosts works well together, and it is an entertaining podcast to listen to.
