I promised myself I wouldn’t post about this episode… the ridicule… the insult… the depravity performed upon my favorite character in the G.I. Joe mythology was almost too painful to revisit here on my website. But for the good of the listeners, I decided to be the bigger man.
Unfortunately a 103 degree fever and gut-punching flu bug kept me from participating in this episode, but that didn’t stop the boys and guest Ed Lydon from piling on poor Hit & Run. I’ll remember this, fellas. As an aside, there is a terrific interview (that I did participate in) with Andrew Kishino, the voice of Storm Shadow from G.I. Joe: Renegades! That almost makes it all worthwhile.
Listen to the latest episode via our Podbean page, or the embedded players below, and as always show notes are after the jump.
This is a bit of minor milestone episode. It is our 100th combined episode we have recorded, produced and published! While we still have a long way to go for our 100th regular episode, these milestones don’t come often and there is no guarantee we will be around for Episode 100 so we give thanks and mark the occasion nevertheless. This episode we are joined by Ed Lydon, the hand chosen (by Chuck) winner of the FOC logo contest. Standing in for Justin, who was under the weather, is CardedHeroes.com Jay Hunger. Included in this episode is a very cool interview we had with Andrew Kishino, the Renegades voice of Storm Shadow. Learn how he had to act against a character who didn’t speak and hear Justin bust his chops for being a Giants fan. Ryan Costello, aka Scramble from JoeCanuck and the Canadian JoeCon shares with us a new segment he’s doing for us called Collectors Connection. Its interesting! You don’t want to miss it. In the second half, we read your emails about your favorite WOJM memories from our previous 100 combined episodes. Oddly, most have to do with our Kevin Michael Richardson interview or Chuck melting down. Both EXCELLENT choices in our opinion. In the news, all 15 figures of the 2013 JoeCon set are revealed. You will get your Justin Bell-free thoughts. We are also excited to report that PRODUCT of all types ARE ON THE SHELVES! Retaliation Wave 2 singles, Retaliation Wave 2 3-packs, Micro Force, Kre-o’s and the running changes of the Basic Assortment figures (aka Dollar General Joes). Also in the news is a LOT of movie news…well, more movie news than we are normally used to since May. So all in all, it is a jam packed show. Its awesome, and you know its awesome because we talk about Suzanne Pleshette…I mean, when was the last time ANYONE mentioned anything about Suzanne Pleshette – on a GI Joe podcast no less. Enjoy #100 in a style only we do things!
