What’s on Joe Mind Episode 97 is now online

It’s been a little while, but the WOJM are back with a new episode featuring all of the latest news and G.I. Joe intel… from like a month ago. Oops.

In all seriousness, it’s not like G.I. Joe news has been hot and heavy these past few weeks, and we touch on some great topics, even broaching the hot-button issue of G.I. Joe Shattered Glass! We also talk about 50th Anniversary releases, the Kre-O Terror Drome and many other great topics.

As always check out the latest episode embedded below or at our Podbean Page.

SHOW NOTES

Not exactly a timely episode, but hey, not a lot is going on. No worries, #98 is right around the corner. You may be wishing for it after you hear Chuck ramble in the opening segment. We basically catch up on some old news, discuss COIL Con V and have a small roundtable on the Club wanting to experiment with Shattered Glass and more TF/Joe Crossovers…which make Gary very grumpy. Enjoy the funk!

What’s on Joe Mind Presents – the MegaForce Commentary!

Because no one demanded it!

Any G.I. Joe fan from the cheesy 80′s can find parallels between G.I. Joe: A Real American Hero and the totally hokey 1980′s military film MegaForce. And yes, I use the term “military” very lightly. In this special edition we do a full blown commentary on the whole 90 minute film. I’m pretty sure the experience took a few years off my life, so you’d all better enjoy it.

Episode 96 of What’s on Joe Mind is now online!

Yes, the recording schedule has been a bit hap hazard, especially with no real news to talk about, but that’s changed over the past few weeks as the news for G.I. Joe has had a resurgence, especially with the 50th Anniversary line being released to retail! We also talk about our favorite Marvel Comics Covers and talk Coil Con.

Not only that, but we talk to Carson of 3D Joes about his exciting 3D Joes Poster Kickstarter Campaign!

The Repacked Podcast talks G.I. Joe vs. Transformers with Justin and Benson!

Here’s another podcast to add to your “listen” pile! Last week I spent some time with Craig “The Scream Man” Moore and Benson “BWTF” Yee to talk about the latest Transformers film (kind of) but more importantly to spin that out to how a G.I. Joe vs. Transformers film franchise could work. And even better, should it even be attempted? Benson, a devoted and diehard Transformers fan brings some awesome stuff to the table, while Craig and I just try to keep up.

It was a lot of fun to record, and I think fans of both franchises should give it a listen.

What’s on Joe Mind Episode 95 is online! We talk about it all in this one

I know a lot of folks have been commenting that we don’t record new episodes nearly as often as we used to… but the good side of that is, when we do, they end up being 3+ hour marathons covering all sorts of different topics! Episode 95 certainly falls into that category, talking Boss Fight Studio, the late Don Levine with business partner Kirk Bozigian, and voice actor Michael Dobson. Expect the same level of back and forth blather, and relive the excitement of the final 36 hours of the Vitruvian HACKS Kickstarter campaign.

What’s on Joe Mind Episode 94 brings Bill Ratner and Arune Singh back to the mike

We are painfully aware that we’re not recording quite as often as we did in the past, but we’re trying to make every one of them count!

For Episode 94 we excitedly welcomed back two long time friends of What’s on Joe Mind, Bill Ratner (the voice of Flint) and Arune Singh (Executive Director of Television Communications, Marvel Entertainment) to have some very different discussions.

Mr. Ratner provides awesome detail about G.I. Joe history, while also breaking down his exciting new endeavor at the Hollywood Fringe Festival.  Meanwhile, Arune celebrates Transformers return to movie screens this summer (and the debut of the IDW comic book) with a spirited discussion about how a G.I. Joe/Transformers team up could work.

Episode 92 of What’s on Joe Mind has it all!

Sorry, Internet, we took a forced sabbatical for a little while as some technical issues nearly wiped out Episode 92 from existence!  Thankfully Gary’s technical wizardry pulled it back from the brink, and we have it ready to go.

This episode is absolutely chock full.  You want to hear about vintage G.I. Joe?  We got Kirk Bozigian for that!  You want to hear about stuff rolling with Boss Fight Studio?  Andrew Franks is actually one of the co-hosts!  You want to hear about some other cool projects from G.I. Joe fans?  Chris Sims and Chad Bowers lay the hammer about Down, Set, Fight!

There is literally something for everyone in this one.  Check out Episode 92 on our Podbean Page, or embedded below, and don’t forget to check the show notes!

What’s on Joe Mind Convention Coverage – Part 1

So just prior to the 2014 G.I. Joe Convention, the What’s on Joe Mind crew got together and recorded Episode 93…this was, of course, before Episode 92 was even finished yet, but we wanted to get Convention preparation online as quickly as possible.

From the floor of JoeCon we kept the recorder flying, and have posted a number of quick “One Shots” from Package Pick Up night and from the Custom Class itself.

All told we recorded several hours worth of content throughout the weekend, including many of the seminars, and pending approval from The G.I. Joe Collectors Club, we’ll hopefully be able to post some of those.  Until then, though, enjoy our coverage (so far) of the 2014 G.I. Joe Convention!

Episode 93

Why episode 93?!  Well, because episode 92 is not ready yet.  However, this one is ready and why make anyone wait?  It’s our “LIVE” show before JoeCon.  Once again we are joined by the Vice President of The Crappy Figure Brigade, Don Anderson.  We finally let Chuck talk a little wrestling, but really this episode is about one thing, JoeCon.  The guys will preview the convention schedule and will give you an up-to-the-minute AccuWeather forecast for Dallas. It’s raw and unfiltered and contains 50% more Chuck – so play this out of earshot of kids.
