In this episode I talk a bit about my visit to Rancho Obi-Wan before jumping in with lasers blazing and talking about as many Star Wars video games, computer games, arcade games and pinball games as a guy can in 75 minutes. I don’t cover ‘em all, but it turns out there are hundreds of them so I did my best.

Visiting Disneyland for the first time last month put me in the mood to tell old stories about theme parks.

YDKF Episode 150: The Creek

The opposite of last week’s show, this week’s episode of You Don’t Know Flack is definitely non-technical. “The Creek” was out behind my house and I spent a lot of time playing and collecting stories out there.

YDKF Episode 149: Networks

I’m back at home and back on the mic with another episode of You Don’t Know Flack. This episode is about the exciting world of computer networks! Okay, so maybe it doesn’t sound that exciting, but give it a chance! This episode’s “loading time” is longer than usual as I discuss my experience with a network-related boot camp I recently attended.

Welcome back, my friends, to the show that never ends. After a slight delay, You Don’t Know Flack is back with an episode all about modchips, those devious little devices that allow you to do naughty things with your videogame consoles. In this episode I talk about the history of modchips, from the original Sony PlayStation to the last generation of consoles.

Another year, another relaunch. On episode 147 of You Don’t Know Flack I bring us into the new year by reflecting back on past holiday traditions and comparing them to my family’s current traditions. After a relaxing December I’m hoping to shake the ring rust off with this episode and get things back on track. In 2014 I’ll be alternating podcasts, with You Don’t Know Flack one week and Sprite Castle the following week.

Getting back to arcade games, I spent November 15-17 in Denver, Colorado hanging around the 1UP Arcade attending the 3rd Annual Kong Off Tournament. Billy Mitchell, Steve Wiebe, Walter Day and the 32 best Donkey Kong players in the world attended the tournament. In this episode of You Don’t Know Flack I talk about my time spent at the Kong Off 3 and some of the other classic arcades I visited in and around Denver!

Throughout the years, several people have asked me how to get started podcasting. I’ve never sat down and wrote or recorded an answer to that question… until now. With audio submissions from several of my fellow podcasters, this episode is packed full of podcast-related hints, tips, suggestions, and most of all, encouragement!

This star-studded episode includes submissions from:

- Guy Hutchinson of the Adventure Club Podcast, Flux Capaci-cast, Drunk on Disney and several other shows, all of which can be found at TheACPN.com
- Earl Green from The Escape Pod(cast) hosted by TheLogBook.com
- Robert “Ferg” Ferguson, host of the Atari 2600 Game by Game Podcast
- Rick and Paul from The Intellivisionaries
- Doug McCoy of McCoyCast (including Never Seen It, Crazy Creepy Cool Movies, and the 80′s Anthology: Episode by Episode podcasts)
- Carrington Vanston, co-host of both No Quarter and the Retro Computing Roundtable
- Sean Johnson, founder of Throwback Reviews, OTR Playlist and my partner on Throwback Network
- The Retroist, owner of Retroist.com and the Retroist Podcast

This episode talks a bit about making an outline vs. reading directly from a script. If you’re interested, here is the outline I used for this episode (PDF).

Better late than never, on this episode of You Don’t Know Flack I rummage through my old Halloween memories, from trick-or-treating back then to trick-or-treating today. I run through most of the costumes I’ve worn in my life and talk about old and new Halloween parties. Not much tech talk on this one, but still a good listen.

On this week’s episode of You Don’t Know Flack I delve into the MiST computer, a new FPGA-based system designed to run Amiga and Atari ST software. I talk about how difficult it is to get the MiST up and running, compatibility issues, and whether or not I’d recommend one.
