Sean is a web developer whose obsession with the Pac-Man franchise goes back to 1981, when he first played Pac-Man as an 7-year-old who didn't quite understand that you need to eat one of those big, blinking things first before you attempt to eat the ghosts. For one brief moment, he thought he held the world record for Jr. Pac-Man Turbo in October 2012, but it was actually only the second-highest score on record, and even that ranking only lasted under a day. A music buff, you can see Sean posting not only on AtariAge.com and Aurcade.com as "dauber," but also on various forums that obsess over The Beatles and Brian Wilson. Sean is also cohost of Pie Factory Podcast.

Episode 109: Boot Camp and G.I. Joe

Happy April! It’s always a sunshine day when the Pie Factory Podcast brings you a new episode! This time, kick back with a couple of relaxing video games from the ’80s, following Jim and Sean through their adventures.

(Note: even though we at least twice mentioned the date we recorded this episode, we know that it’s easy to forget or not even notice, but…this episode was recorded before the stay-at-home orders were issued! We assure you we take our health and that of others seriously and as such we practice social distancing. Then again, it’s not much of a change of pace for either of us, given our social skills.)

Chicago Bears fans, hopefully a new episode will cheer you up. Philadelphia Eagles fans, celebrate by listening to a new episode. Those of you who don’t like American Football — hey, good news: you can listen to a new episode on Sunday!

In this episode, Sean and Jim talk about two games that are not the most common buggers you’ll see in the arcade world. But hey, it’s for some special friends, so why not?
