It's our dear Jacob's 30th birthday and what better way to spend than at the American Classic Arcade Museum also known as "Funspot" in New Hampshire. Upright Arcade games and pinball as far as the eye can see! The Shiny Podcast takes you there with a special short episode we recorded live on location. It's a little different this week, no news, new depressing headlines... just fun. Please forgive us for the rough audio! We'll be back with your regularly scheduled Shiny very soon.
