Yes, its another near 3 hour epic. This time the ENTIRE team is back in action as we are joined by Carson from 3DJoes.com, but not before hearing from Sunbow legend, the voice of Lady Jaye herself (and maybe your car's nav system), Mary McDonald-Lewis! She'll be at JoeCon along with Justin, Mike and Gary so you will be hearing from her again, we are sure. Sit back and take a trip down memory lane as Mary tells us how important Lady Jaye is to her and what's she's currently up to in Hollywood and in the Great Northwest. Carson joins us for the rest of the show and talks to us about his technology that powers 3DJoes.com and proves once again - what we ALREADY know - EVERYTHING IS BETTER IN 3D. In the news, the team laments the cancellation of the Canadian JoeCon. Retaliation trailers and the Paramount PR machine is in high gear for preparation of the 28th and 29th of March! FSS shipment 3 lands on our doorsteps and boy is it a "knockout." Joe fans have conquered now THREE hotels in downtown Indy for JoeCon 2013 and lastly, it looks like there is yet another tie between Jurassic Park and our favorite man of action. We got your tweets, letters and more in this episode of WOJM!

Rough day, eh? Kinda ironic this is all happening, AGAIN, and it's on Groundhog Day Eve. I feel like we've all been here before. Well, maybe we can take some of the ease off with this Lost Episode. It has been a while since we've posted a lost episode, so let us fill you in on what they are. From time to time we are asked to record a segment for another show. Since we put the same amount of effort into a 10 minute show as we would a 90 minute show, we toss the file into the media archives to use when a rainy day occurs. Well, this is one of those types of days. So for those of you who braved the F5 world today, we present to you, from the archives, our submission to the GeekCast Radio Network's 2012 Year In Review episode. Please visit our friends at GeekCastRadio.com, and say hi to TFG.I.Mike for us! He's GI Joe's #1 fan! ;) Again, this was published with special permission from the GCRN. Thanks Steve!
The gang is back together! Chuck goes over his clandestine rescue of Greg in Canada which leads to an unfortunate slip of the tongue by Chuck. Getting down to business Greg finally gives his Canadian Joe Con report. We dip into the mailbag to read some listener mail from Japan and once again discuss the OCS ARAH Project - is O-Ring evolution a bad thing? In the news, Greg takes us through the details of the 2nd Annual COIL Con and Sideshow Snake Eyes Statue. The team reacts to the good news from the GIJCC concerning the cancelled mail-away Rise of Cobra Cobra Commander figure w/ HISS Drone being made available to members. We review the latest episode of Renegades. Why is this show getting cancelled (er...we mean put on 'hiatus') when it is FINALLY getting good - thanks HASBRO! Rounding out the news we discuss the latest GI Joe 2 castings as Justin kindly reminds us that the Blind Master was originally black, so the casing of RZA is very appropriate. In our first debate segment called "Watch Yer Flank!", we react to the latest Seibertron Twincast report that eventually JoeCon and BotCon will be one. Gary reacts harshly as you would expect. Is it a good idea or bad idea? Lastly, we give out the details on how YOU can win a PRE-PRODUCTION 30th Anniversary Skystriker. Remember folks, it is said POUTINE - by another other name, it simply isn't french fries, gravy and cheese curds. Got it? Good...enjoy!
We are half way home in the 2011 convention season. SDCC is up next and there is no shortage of news. The team, minus an allegedly incarcerated Greg, recaps the Canadian Joe Con one more time. Was Hasbro taunting US fans with the GI Joe Cycle Armour coming out in Canada or will we see it here? Next we go over the sometimes ambiguous but always appreciated tweets from GI Joe 2 director Jon Chu and writer Rhett Reese. Next we dive into the shallow waters of the latest Hasbro Q&A and learn more about why the Data Viper got the axe and how the 30th Anniversary Skystriker went from fanboy dream to an actual upcoming product on the shelves in August. Supporting continued community fan projects, Justin and Gary talk up the new Old School Creations membership drive and subscription service of O-Ring figures! On to the small screen, Renegades is winding down, but the action is ratcheting up as we look at Episode 22. Gary takes a moment to go over his thoughts of Tristan Rudat's GI Joe documentry: Code Name Blast Off - if you are on the fence on buying this, you will want to listen. Lastly, we welcome the new listeners joining us from Insidepulse.com and encourage everyone to keep those questions on SK Omega coming in! All this and MIKE joins us, this week on WOJM! FREE GREG!!
Program co-hosts Greg and Gary venture up north to Toronto for the 2011 Canadian Joe Convention. With a little help from CJC staffer Ryan and from published author and friend of the program James Kavanaugh Jr., the team pulls off the first Joe convention podcast. With no real news to discuss, we let James run wild with an open microphone in part 1. In part 2 we talk with Tristan Rudat about his new full-length feature documentary: Code Name Blast Off. In part 3 we get to hear more about how the convention set was made from CJC staffers Dave and Ed AND we get to learn a little about JoeCustoms.com from John aka Pluv! Finally, we get to hear some parting words from none other than the main host himself, THE Mike; aka Mike Heddle. Its a 3 part clip show encompassing an 13 hour time line - squeezed down to less than an hour for your listening pleasure. It's the Canadian Joe Con delivered right to your MP3 player from the fellas of What's on JOE Mind!! Now go grab us some Timbits!!
That's right, we are a day early this week as we begin our journey to Toronto for the 2011 Canadian Joe Convention! Greg phoned it in - LITERALLY. It sucks not having internet, but the powers of a good smart phone and powerful app level the playing field - even though it sounded like he was calling from a cave. Chuck tries his hand at amateur comedy and shows why he now on Homeland Security's watchlist and not showing up at the Improv. We talk about the upcoming CJC; Gary tells us how to LEGALLY get into Canada; we discuss the 6" protos from Goggles and Notpicard. In addition, the team gives their thoughts on the the possible casting of Jinx, Renegades episode 21 & Dr. Venom. Finally we give a refresher on SK Omega, and Justin reminds us to give the GIJCC a break. We are Eastbound and Down! Enjoy and see you in Canada!
Careful what you wish for... The team laments that on Friday they had nothing to talk about and then come record time, they had to cut out segments so the podcast would not turn into a 3 hour marathon. Regardless, you are in for 1hr and 45 minutes of wall-to-wall Joe news. Leading off with an interview of the ELITE WARRIOR (aka Numbers) from the website Ages 25 & Up, the team discusses the GI Joe 2 casting of Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson, the latest two additions to the CanJoeCon set - Valkyrie and Traceroute, the results from the latest round of the Hasbro Q&A, Renegades, and the "last" wave of the Pursuit of Cobra vehicles. All this and more in this super sized and BotCon FREE edition of What's on JOE Mind!
This week Show Runner Greg on assignment so the team calls on Mike to pinch hit once again. With the adjusted lineup, the gang discusses the GIJCC Figure Subscription, the new CJC Coyote Troopers, and IDW's handling of the Joe license. Chuck debuts his new segment, "Revisiting the Classics with Chuck" and lastly we play "Guess that Head" from a post we found on HissTank. Gary also announces some big news concerning an upcoming episode featuring a Joe related line that has been surrounded by a veil of ambiguity - if you wanna know what it is, you gotta listen.
Joined by JoeSightings and JoeDeclassified staffer Beach-Head Mike, the group talks about the past/present/future of Renegades and Gary shows his lack of show prep; Mike Heddle talks to us about the Canadian GI joe Convention as Greg tries to get out of standing in line; Marauder John's Wave 6 is discussed and is agreed upon as being awesome; In Collecting 101 we talk about how we get our Joes, mail order or retail; finally Gary boldly announces that the GI Joe Cycle Armour with Ashiko will appear in Canada first. Timbits that look like Cover Girl taste like BLANK. Don't forget to email the show at email@example.com.
Episode 1: Greg, Chuck and Gary discuss the Canadian GI Joe Convention and cover how we store our collections in our new segment: Collecting 101.
