Luke’s conversation with actor Stephen Tobolowsky continues on this epispde and we also have a feature with Japan’s Number One Mixer, Sean DeTore. He visited Seattle’s Pinball Museum, which I can’t believe I never went to while living there. I’m a terrible pinball player (there’s a steep learning curve and a limited number of quarters I can afford to spend) but I still always loved Shorty’s and Add-A-Ball. If you haven’t been to either of those establishments definitely check them out. The latter of which has great games like Bubble Bobble and bizarre relics like Wacko. On one occasion I played Bubble Bobble with a sweaty stranger who asked me “are you a points man or a distance man?” If that doesn’t sell you on the place, I don’t know what will.
