Mammoth 100th Episode of What’s on Joe Mind is online

Holy…

Yeah, this is a big ‘un.  For our landmark 100th episode of What’s on Joe Mind, we wanted to pull out all the stops, but I don’t think any of us envisioned the result would be a close to five hour marathon of G.I. Joe talk!

All that being said, there is something here for everyone.  We talk to Bill and Craig from Fresh Monkey Fiction and Zica Toys about the Eagle Force Returns and Captain Action Kickstarter…and we break a special bit of news about them as well!

Along the way, we invite Cobra Commander himself to read from the mailbag, take listener calls, and break down all the latest (as of a month ago) news!

As always, find the latest episode at Podbean, and it’s also embedded below.  Show Notes are after the break.

Details for What’s on Joe Mind Episode #100 – The Call In Episode!

Every once in a while we do a call in episode to mark significant events in the What’s on Joe Mind podcast.  For obvious reasons, Episode #100 is one of these.

Over on the WOJM Facebook Page, Gary has posted the details of the Call In Show, check them out below!  Talk to you then…

If you would like to join us for our 100th episode recording as a caller, here is what you do.

1.) Get Skype
2.) add Chuckdawg1999 to Skype (try to do this by this coming Monday).
3.) Make sure to test your audio before hand. A nice USB headset would be perfect, but really any old set will do for a little bit.
4.) Be online starting at 9pm EST on Wednesday, March 11, 2015
5.) When you see Chuck online, be sure to let him know you want to be on the show. Chuck will let you know what number you are in the order. Be ready with a question or topic you would like to talk about. You will also be part of the show as we will still be doing the news and other regular segments, so be ready to participate.

If you have any questions, just ask below. It’s late and I may have forgot something.

Lastly, one of our original hosts, Greg, will be joining us for #100. Be sure to ask him what’s he’s been up to!

What’s on Joe Mind Episode 99

Honestly, I was feeling okay, I was just tired. My favorite  team had just won the Super Bowl two nights before, but work was hectic and I hadn’t slept a whole lot in a few days, and felt like I really needed to get some rest. So when Gary and Mike offered to have Gary Head sit in for me…well, I agreed pretty quick.

This had happened a few times before. I was grateful that someone like Gary was willing to jump in at the last minute, especially because he’d asked me to be on the JDSO podcast a number of times, and I’d always found some lame excuse why I couldn’t. But the flip side of Gary filling in for me was that we rarely got a chance to record together. That seems especially hard hitting and unfortunate today.

I give Godsoe a lot of credit for sitting through this episode in editing and preparation, I’m sure I couldn’t have done it…I wouldn’t have been strong enough to listen to Goggles’ voice for three hours while deciding where to cut or adjust sound controls. It must have been difficult.

As we lead up to Episode 100, it seems appropriate that the penultimate marathon that brought us here features Gary “Goggles” Head in his last speaking role, and its a testament to his place in the G.I. Joe fandom that he got one last opportunity to voice his opinions before falling forever silent. Meanwhile, I struggle with the fact that I missed being with him on this night, I’m sure it would have been a memorable one.

You can listen to Episode 99 of What’s on Joe Mind, one that’s sure to live on for a long time, over on our Podbean page, or embedded below.

As always, the show notes are after the break.

Rest in Peace, Gary… as painful as it was, it felt good to hear your voice one last time.

What’s On Joe Mind Episode 98 Mammoth 3 Hour Episode is online!

The way episodes have been posted lately means that a somewhat larger gap happens between them, which actually has the benefit of giving us more to talk about. For episode 98 we come close to our self imposed three hour limit, but it’s tough to say that any of the discussion was extraneous. We talk to good friend of WOJM Bill Ratner about his latest adventures, and he never fails to entertain. There’s some great discussion about regional events as well, encompassing lots of real estate from Iowa all the way to Southampton, UK… wherever there’s trouble, WOJM is there!

Of course we also talk about latest rumors of a 6″ G.I. Joe line and get back to basics about what G.I. Joe means to us. Lots of stuff crammed into that three hours, hopefully you’ll enjoy it.

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.

Check out the latest Special Edition on our Podbean Page (or embedded below) and check out the show notes!

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!

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.
