    Autobiography of a Schnook

    Chapter 2 is now available. As promised, I'm not posting anything that isn't video game related...(hint, hint!) https://www.schnookpodcast.com/audio/Schnook_Chapter002.mp3

    Pie Factory Podcast

    With episode 87, Jim and Sean decided to end 2018 on a...well, let's face it...weird note. I mean, come on! Who's ever HEARD of these games?! Well...SOMEBODY must have, or else there wouldn't be a podcast talking about them! Podcasts just don't talk about games that don't exist! (or do they?) Regardless, this certainly is a podcast episode, and we hope you will all agree. http://www.fab4it.com/piefactory/audio/PFP_Episode087.mp3

    Autobiography of a Schnook

    Well, friends, the time has come... Autobiography of a Schnook has officially launched! The truth is, though, it launched last week. The preface (or, as some podcasts call it, "episode zero") was released, but I didn't want to make an announcement until the first episode (or "chapter") was available as well, just to get both an introduction and some context out there. The podcast is available on all the major podcast providers...except Apple Podcasts / iTunes...because, well...Apple takes up to two weeks to approve podcasts. Heck, even Google Play only took *hours*! But hey, it's out. What's it about? Well...for years it's been my observation that you can go to a library or book store and find biographies of...famous people...but no biographies of just your average, everyday schnook of whom nobody's ever heard. I figured I should publish an autobiography and call it Autobiography of a Schnook. The reality is...I'd never actually finish it. But eventually it occurred to me: why not do it as a podcast? So...here it is. Despite my two video game podcasts and my frequenting of video game fora, my first love is actually music, so every episode will have a segment called "Music for Schnooks." (Spoiler alert: a future episode will have a "Music for Schnooks" guest many of us have heard of. ) Having said that, I will NOT be posting here every time a new episode is out. In an effort to be as on-topic as possible, after this point I will only post when an episode has a video game topic. I just wanted to announce this podcast for now. I don't know if this podcast will be any kind of success, but I really don't care; I just want to do it, and I invite you all to give it a listen. The home page is schnookpodcast.com. There's a Facebook presence, so you can "like" the page at facebook.com/SchnookPodcast if you do the FB thing. Episode links are below: ----------------- PREFACE: Welcome to the world of a schnook. Sean isn’t anybody rich, famous, heroic, or otherwise remarkable; he’s just a schnook. And he’s here to not only tell his story, but also to refer to himself in the third person. https://www.schnookpodcast.com/audio/Schnook_Preface.mp3 ------------------ CHAPTER 1: In the first chapter of Autobiography of a Schnook, Sean focuses on Thanksgiving-related topics: – A Thanksgiving Curse? – Music For Schnooks: Don’t Meet Your Heroes (Troubled Genius Edition) https://www.schnookpodcast.com/audio/Schnook_Chapter001.mp3

    Games your parents liked

    My mother never wanted anything to do with video games (although she did insist that I join her in a game of Mr. Do! some time in the '90s when we were waiting for a table at a restaurant; don't know what came over her!) but often my dad would play some Atari stuff with me. He's VERY left-handed, but the CX-40 is wired for right-handed people, so he'd only play games that didn't require a fire button - usually Pac-Man and Ms. Pac-Man. (He actually brought that up recently! "I was getting addicted to that!" he said.) He'd also play Super Breakout, as he had no problem wrapping his right hand around the paddle to operate the button.

    Pie Factory Podcast

    Hey, all...just some shameless self-promotion... Inky from AtariAge and I co-host Pie Factory Podcast. It's an arcade game podcast. What we do, typically: - We discuss, rate, and share our memories of playing two (2) arcade games. - The two (2) arcade games have a common theme. The common theme could be something as simple as "games whose titles are compound words" (such as Zoo Keeper and Firefox) to the obscure as "games that Dauber first played at Hunk's Pancake House in Bradley, IL" (Frogger and Asteroids). Occasionally we veer from the usual format, such as the three episodes we've done to talk about various home consoles (we've discussed the 2600, 7800, and Sega Genesis so far), or one episode that was nothing more than an interview with Brian Colin, designer behind Rampage, Arch Rivals, etc. (Seriously, he's a fascinating and hilarious guy...) We've been doing the podcast since April of last year, and in the next few days we'll be releasing episode #44, in which we discuss Dig Dug and Pac-Mania. You can hear the podcast via the usual channels -- iTunes, Google Play, Stitcher...possibly a few other providers I'm forgetting about. We have a Faceobook page, and our web page is at www.piefactorypodcast.com. We welcome both audio and textual feedback, too! Oh...yeah...and we won the Golden Poddie Award for podcast of the year for 2015.
