Yes, it’s been a while since we’ve posted an episode of What’s on Joe Mind, but hopefully we’ve made up for it with the length of this one! Clocking in at just over three hours, there’s enough G.I. Joe conversation here to keep any Joe fan satisfied.
We talk to legendary toy expert Mark Bellomo and winner of the What’s on Joe Mind Fantasy Football league (and operator of the awesome GIJoeGraphy site) Dan Uthman.

At just over 3 hours, this epic clocks in as our second longest episode ever. It’s hard to believe we’ve never done a 3 hour podcast before, but you asked for it, therefore, you got it. MOAR WOJM! Think of it as a 3 course meal. Your appetizer is a marathon interview with Distinguished Author, Mark Bellomo. We cover things from the short comings of the hobby today and even dive into a little Monster High – not that we went in depth on that one, but is was brought up to prove a point. From Toys to Education, we cover it all with Mark. Before the main course, we cleanse your pallet with a trip into the mail bag and a review of the Vintage, 30th Pre-Prod and 30th Retail versions of the Skystriker from our man Shogi. In your main course, we deliver you hearty portions of community news covering FSS Shipment #1, the Shooter Kickstarter Project, Hot Toys, Retaliation and a roundtable discussion concerning the GIJCC Newsletter. If you are not full yet, Chuck awards the winner in the FOC logo contest and we are joined by WOJM FFL Champion Dan Uthman all episode long as he hangs out with us as a Special Guest. There is a little something here for everyone. So, for the next 3 hours (or next 3 lunch hours) enjoy as the news drought begins to end and the run to Retaliation and Indianapolis begins!
For those who aren’t into the Fantasy Football, our big Fantasy League wrap up with our Champion Dan runs from 02:36:30 to 02:49:23. Yes, its a lengthy segment, but Dan has certainly earned his time in the sun to speak his mind, so we let him…and our witty banter rip with this last football segment of the 2012-2013 football season. Does it mean we’re done talking Football….NO! We still need to pester Justin about his Patriots choking in big games, AND we have March Madness right around the corner. We’ll still talk sports, but we will be doing a little less of it for the upcoming future. Besides, there is Toy Fair, Retaliation, JoeCon, the FSS and new toys coming out, so we will have PLENTY to talk about! We can’t wait!!
