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 16: Tinkle Pit and Mr. Do!

It’s that time again: another exciting, mammoth blockbuster edition of Pie Factory Podcast! This time it’s about Mr. Do!, which is definitely not related to Dig Dug in any way at all, it looks nothing like that game, nothing to see here…and a ’90s Namco maze game released only in Japan. So get your favorite podcast grabber and enjoy this episode while you visit your tinkle pit! Show notes will be available on http://www.piefactorypodcast.com.

Episode 15 (part 1): Galloping Ghost Arcade, Space Duel, and Pac-Man

We are proud to offer this mega-episode. Part 2 will be up in two weeks, but for part 1, we have a pretty exciting talk with Galloping Ghost’s Doc Mack. The rest of the show is a bit lop-sided toward Space Duel, but that’s only because Pac-Man is so monumental that we required literally more than an entire episode to talk about that one game that spawned a cultural phenomenon that has yet to show any hint of going away. We hope you’ll enjoy this one. Oh, and…do Jim and Sean finally settle their “Galaga” argument?
