This Special Edition has actually been online for a while, I just hadn’t gotten the link posted yet, because… well… honestly, I have no good reason. I’m just a dirty scumbag.
For folks who have been listening for a long time, this will be a pretty neat blast to the past. During this Special Edition, we look back on episode #0, the pilot episode… otherwise known as Episode 0 BH (Before Hawk). I will say it was pretty fascinating looking back on this episode and seeing what was “news” and what sort of conversation was sparked. And hey, we brought Greg back! Check out our Podbean page, or the embedded link below. I’m also going to include a link back to our Special Edition .5, which is a remastered version of the very first pilot episode with better audio and some drop ins. Check ‘em both out.
Special Edition #20
Join Chuck, Justin, Mike, and Gary, along with the RETURN OF GREG as we look back at our pilot episode. Was what was important then, still important now? Have our opinions changed? How has the news and episode held up under the stress of time? Its a fun and unique look into our past, done in a way only the WOJM guys could do it. It’s a laid back, no pressure, special edition, so sit back, relax and enjoy a trip back to April 2011.
Feels like the very first time, eh? Yes, this is a remixed and remastered version of our original pilot episode published WAY back in April of 2011. In the grand scheme of things, it doesn’t seem that long ago, but when you dive into its topic matter, it seems almost like another time and another place. What was the big topic of the day? SKYSTRIKERS…yeah, that’s right, Hasbro just announced the price point for the 30th Anniversary re-release of our favorite Jet. What else was hot in the news at the time? How about Hasbro taking a big financial hit in its quarterly reports? Feeling a loss at the Concept Case at JoeCon ’12? Well, don’t forget about the concept presentation from JoeCon ’11. Excited for Retaliation figures now? How about Pursuit of Cobra wave 6 then? Oh yeah, and how about 3 absolute strangers getting together to record the first, in what turned out to be, longest running Joe podcast to date. Why is this coming out now? You’ll find out in Special Edition #20…but you need to listen to this first. It’s isn’t that much better than the original, but its shorter and hopefully the pain will be less too. So kick that flux capacitor into action and let’s travel back in time to our first ever show!
