SciFi #28: The Skill Shot Pincast Crossover!

Skillshot It’s a multiplayer super jackpot combo podcast event, the meeting of SciFi and pinball! Jesse is joined by pinball aficionados Kayla Greet and Graham Klym, the hosts of the Skill Shot Pincast. In part one of their epic conversation they discuss the ill fortune of Ponda Baba, whether or not Data East did justice to their SciFi pinball licenses, and sing an impassioned (drunken) version of Space Oddity by the late, great Bowie. Be sure to subscribe to the Pincast to hear next week’s conclusion.

SciFi #26: The Force Awakens Goes to Broadway!

JeanIn a spoiler heavy discussion, Jean Burnet and Jesse discuss their initial impressions of The Force Awakens while polishing off a bottle of wine. Is Kylo Ren a great new villain or obnoxious man-child? Would you rather go on a date with Han Solo or Poe Dameron? Is Luke Skywalker’s long 80’s hair the biggest shock of the movie? All those questions will be answered, before they improvise a song about the film.
