The Memory Machine #59 – The Birth of Pinball (w/ Ethan Johnson)

This week, Ethan Johnson returns as we talk about the next great chapter in arcade game history: the birth of Pinball (or Pigeonhole, if you must). It’s a big topic with an appropriately long runtime, so get ready to fill your ears with a lot of ballyhoo! (pun is ABSOLUTELY intended.)

Ethan excellent blog is The History of How We Play.
