    Here's a Borscht Belt style joke I made specifically for Chicagoans: "I got in a taxi and told the cabbie to take me to Ohio and Rush. An hour later I was in TOLEDO!"

  1. I may be a schnook, but I ain’t a fool: here’s an episode for April 2021! In chapter 32: Pandemic Traveling – My first vacation away in over a year Music for Schnooks – A couple of guests join for an intense conversation about partying with Beatle-people https://schnookpodcast.com/2021/04/30/chapter-32/
  2. One game is about kids who answer trivia questions and run through a chocolate and slime filled obstacle course. The other is about a New Jersey kid who moves to California and is bullied by martial arts jocks. What could the theme be? Only you, the listener, will find out. https://piefactorypodcast.wordpress.com/2021/04/27/episode-121-double-dragon-and-kung-fu-master/
  3. Mine has been stuck in my 7800 since it arrived the day I got home from my vacation two and a half weeks ago.
  4. Getting in under the wire before the month expires, it’s time for another chapter in the life of a schnook! In this episode: New York: It’s complicated. How the Big Apple and a schnook get along…or maybe don’t get along. Music for Schnooks: Four (or more?) from ’84 – the soundtrack of a past life https://schnookpodcast.com/2021/03/31/chapter-31/
  5. Thanks to the response from Listeners Like You™, we decided to go back and address feedback from our previous episode. Your top ten desert island games (assuming your desert island has an adequate power source, of course) and of course all the other heartwarming (or heartburning?) dialog you're familiar with from Jim'n'Sean are discussed in this Very Special Episode®️. https://piefactorypodcast.wordpress.com/2021/03/23/episode-120-revisited/
  6. After taking a month off, we're back with a new episode! In fact, after recording the main body, it turned out there was more room for one more story, so in comes a special guest to the rescue! In this chapter ・𝗟𝗶𝗳𝗲 𝗶𝗻 𝘁𝗵𝗲 𝗔𝗿𝗺𝗽𝗶𝘁 - a tour of an early life of schnookery ・𝗥𝗶𝗱𝗶𝗻' 𝘁𝗵𝗲 𝗥𝗮𝗶𝗹𝘀 - riding Amtrak for the first time ・𝗠𝘂𝘀𝗶𝗰 𝗙𝗼𝗿 𝗦𝗰𝗵𝗻𝗼𝗼𝗸𝘀: 𝗬𝗼𝘂 𝘄𝗮𝗻𝘁𝗲𝗱 𝘁𝗵𝗲 𝗯𝗲𝘀𝘁...but you got me instead. https://schnookpodcast.com/2021/02/28/chapter-30-firsts/
  7. 'Swonderful. 'Smarvelous. 'Stime for episode 120! If each of the hosts of Pie Factory Podcast had his druthers, which games would he’d ruther have in his home arcade over all the other ones? Tune in to this exciting frost-biting candy-throwing installment to hear the gory details! https://piefactorypodcast.wordpress.com/2021/02/28/episode-120-our-top-ten/
  8. Episode 119 has DROPPED! New month, new year, new U.S. President, New Balance Stores Phoenix, and...oh, yeah! NEW EPISODE! Woohoo! What more can we say, but....vroom! Chop! https://piefactorypodcast.wordpress.com/2021/01/24/episode-119-hang-on-and-golden-axe/
  9. For me the attraction in Combat 1990 is that it's a one-player game. The reason I didn't like Combat on the 2600 is that it requires two players: given that when we got the 2600 in 1982 my brother was (and, actually, still is, now that I think of it!) ten years older than me, I was kinda-sorta an only child for all practical purposes. Yeah, I had friends, but they didn't always want to play Combat!
  10. GOLDEN AXE! Hang On and Golden Axe. (Can't believe I actually had to listen to remember! Yeah, could have asked Jim, but...what's the fun in that?? What grinds my gears is that I was actually at an arcade that HAS Golden Axe since we last recorded and I didn't play the thing!!)
  11. Wait...wasn't there just a new episode a few days ago? Well, yeah, but...let's talk about 1990. It was a time when we needed to pray just to make it today. (Plus ça change, plus c'est la même chose.) In this episode: The Year That Was 1990 - and how a teenage schnook deals with a new school and a new job Music for Schnooks - How a simple Christmas present changed an angsty teen's life forever https://schnookpodcast.com/2020/12/24/chapter-29-the-1990-episode/
  12. Unless you count Impossible Mission, then Fight Night. The computer player has special moves, while the human player does not.
  13. In the first release of December 2020, we look inside the mind of a 14-year Chicagoan, God help us all. In this chapter: ∙ About a Schnook – Does he live quietly? What are his personal habits? ∙ Music For Schnooks: Rubber Schnook – An approach to a classic Beatles album. British version? American version? A hybrid? https://schnookpodcast.com/2020/12/22/chapter-28/
  14. Next games are Hang On and...oh, crap, honestly, I don't remember. 😕 It's mentioned at the end of the episode though. You can post feedback here if you want, or tweet us @piefactorypfp, or e-mail us at piefactory@fab4it.com
