GeekGamerPinball – “A soft plunge…”


Pinburgh 2013  C Division Champion Chase Nunes chats with Mark Steinman and Bowen Kerins about PAPA, Pinburgh, pinball, PAPA TV and more on another high quality, pinball-focused podcast.

After viewing this podcast I am actively excited about the future of pinball and pinball broadcasting, even more than usual. Of course I searched for the Kickstarter, and it’s not up yet as of this date (C’mon, Kickstarter).


Chase has very quickly become a valued ambassador for the sport of pinball, and I am looking forward to seeing what Geek Gamer Network produces in the future.

More on GeekGamerTV.
