New G.I. Joe themed podcast – The Regular Joes

Some exciting news to report as another G.I. Joe oriented podcast has shown up, where three long time G.I. Joe collectors talk geek topics as well as talk about their G.I. Joe background.  The unique thing about this particular podcast is that the three folks involved, Barry Kay, Tod Pleasant, and Dave Pisani are all long time G.I. Joe collectors who have mainly focused their attention on the 12″ side of things.  They are all regular contributors to the G.I. Joe Collectors Club, and Tod Pleasant is the writer of the excellent Adventure Team comic that has been running through those pages.

He and Dave also work together on the “Regular Joes” comic in the newsletter, too.  So these guys are obviously very deeply invested in the G.I. Joe brand and have some really great perspective on that and on mainstream geek topics in general.

Check out their show on iTunes here, and also on Libsyn.

Their latest episode is Episode Three, and they talk about their background in collecting and even bring on actor Jon Billingsly from Star Trek and True Blood.  They’re starting off with a big splash.

Check out Episode Three right here.  I’m looking forward to seeing where this show goes!

Get your mind bent on Episode #79 of What’s on Joe Mind

Just to show what kind of whirlwind the past month has been, I somehow neglected to post that Episode 79 of What’s on Joe Mind was released!  Featuring the impressive vocal talents of the immortal Brian Cummings, we talk about his role as Dr. Mindbender in the Sunbow series, and have a lengthy discussion about codpieces.

Yes, really.

But that’s not all!  We also bring our good Marvel buddy Arune Singh on to talk about Iron Man 3, C2E2 and get prepared for the upcoming ComicCon.  Check out this latest episode on our Podbean page, or the embedded players below.  As always, Show Notes are after the jump.

What’s on Joe Mind Reviews G.I. Joe: Retaliation…with special guest Jon M Chu!

When we sat down Friday night to talk about our feelings on G.I. Joe: Retaliation, I’m not sure any of us figured that by the end of the recording, we’d be sharing our thoughts and concerns with Jon Chu himself!  But timing is everything, and that’s how it worked out.

We spend the first hour or so dissecting the film, and trying not to go total fanboy.  Rest assured, most of us loved the film, we were just trying to do some objective analysis.  But when Mr. Chu joined the call, I think we all went a little fanboy.  Check out the latest special edition on our Podbean page, or through the embedded players below.  Show notes, as usual, after the jump.

WARNING!  SPOILERS AHEAD!

SHOW NOTES

Once again, first off, there are many many spoilers discussed in this episode. If you have not seen the movie and do not want to be spoiled, we recommend you DO NOT listen to this until you have seen the movie first!!

So we’ve all seen the movie. There is some parts WE LOVE. There are some parts that still need some work. Aaaand, yes, there is a part or two that made us cringe. With that said, we all enjoyed our time at the theater to watch the movie we waited so long for. What were our favorite parts? What parts did we not like? What would we do if we were in charge? We answer all of those. Plus…we get an unannounced but very welcome visit by Retalition’s Director – yes, Mr. Jon M. Chu himself joins us from his kitchen. He spends nearly an HOUR with us candidly answering every question we asked him. What an opportunity – thanks to Justin for setting that up and thanks for Jon joining us while going over opening night return numbers. We had a blast doing this one and we hope you enjoy this once-in-a-lifetime recording of WOJM!

Once again, spoilers are abound – you have been warned!

G.I. Joe: Retaliation News and Reaction

What’s on Joe Mind Episode 75 – Listener call in extravaganza!!

Well, we loved it so much we did it again!

In celebration of episode #52, we offered listeners a chance to call in and talk with us directly about their burning G.I. Joe issues, and the response was incredible.  We all had a blast doing it, so we figured to celebrate our diamond anniversary of episode #75 we’d do it again.  I think we’re all glad we did.  It was a raucus, “from the hip” whirlwind where we eschewed news and current events and just leaped into talking with YOU, our listeners.  Joined by good friend Erik Arana, who provides some great insight into our hobby and the toy industry in general.

Because there wasn’t much in the way of news or intel, the show notes are just below.  You can find the episode on Podbean, or via the embedded players below.
