I don't know about Inky, but I've been curious as to how this episode would go over. It's a bit on the unusual side. Still the same format - preamble, Addena and Errata, one game, another game, theme reveal, thanks to the sponsors, announcing the next episode's games, closing credits, and (if applicable) bloopers/outtakes. But the content itself is a bit unusual.
Out of the blue I already got some insightful feedback but I'd like as much as possible.
Actually, I think it's one of our better episodes.
Of course that's not saying much.

Question: What did Sean get wrong *this time*? Answer: it’s probably somewhere in this episode. So is a missing sequined glove (probably). Anyway, just listen to episode 70. Because that’s what it certainly is: an episode.http://fab4it.com/pi..._Episode070.mp3

I enjoyed the episode. I wanted to do a news episode about the recent developments in Atari land (I am assuming here that is the unusual content you are referring to), but I just don't have the heart to do it. I think you guys were fair all around and I appreciate that.
I wish I would have seen the Trivial Pursuit games, I don't remember ever seeing them anywhere. I played a shit ton of Trivia Whiz, where sometimes I got the same questions in the same game. I never knew about the misprints either, that's really interesting. I'm surprised you didn't mention that Coleco owned Scrabble for a short time.
Technically, you are right that Columbo's first name was never revealed on the show. But nowadays, we have freeze frame and all that crap, so we can see on his license that his first name is Frank.

Now HOW did I know it'd be Tim & Andy?
Uhh. Because we have our own groovy thing. Huh-huh

Here we are with another instalment of Pie Factory Podcast, an arcade game podcast that most certainly exists. What do you get when you combine Atari and NAMCO? Well, maybe Pac-Mania, but in this case, you get cops and a superhero. This episode will certainly be just that: a episode!

Just last weekend, I was able to play a real APB at an arcade party(a podcaster's house!) . That game is as difficult as I remembered it. Wish I knew about level select back then.
I got up to the day(4?) where you have to ticket the litterbug taxicabs. I got so many cabs, but then they just stopped showing up on the road. As per the episode explains, I saw way more cabs going the opposite direction. Tried to turn around and drive downwards(facing bottom of the cab), but still couldn't get enough taxis in time/fuel to pass the day.
It is a bleepin' hard game. There's the whole micromanagement aspect of not slamming into cars w/ siren off, the need to turn off the siren to "Catch them in the act" and all sorts of bonus opportunities whizzing by, like the broke down car+woman who needs help.
It takes a bit used to with the "pull over" icon in front of you to line it up against the criminal car.
