In this episode, David interviews Tim Moyers, a psychotherapist, professor, and private collector of pinball machines with a passion for custom restorations that have to be seen in person to be fully appreciated. Over the past year, Tim has created two masterpiece machines for his own collection, and he welcomes others to play them at private events in his home. First, The Getaway by Williams, and then a Bally Frontier. Watch the short video below before listening to the interview!
