It’s our 37th episode (in a row) and we’re crashing the net with our most requested sports game - NBA Jam. We break down all the boomshakala basics and dig deep to uncover some little known facts with the help of author Reyan Ali - who literally wrote the book on NBA Jam! How did a vid kid go from a Pong console to making the most iconic basketball game ever? What are the origins of “Boomshakala!”? Is the NBA Jam arcade game haunted? What Midway secrets are still out there? All that plus we grab our Sneakers and make a Beer Run, explore the promise of Pleasure Domes, talk about bad first impressions, and praise the savior of pinball (and arcades).
