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.

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!
