Special Edition 63: An Interview With Paul Allor

It's new comic day, so celebrate with Mike, Rack Time Rob (in his main-roster hosting debut) and new GI Joe scribe Paul Allor!  It's a half-hour of talking about the new IDW title "GI Joe," on sale September 18!  Mike fights to hold on to his voice (which may make this the most popular episode in a long while) but Rob's comics pedigree shows up in force.  Congratulations and good luck on a long run for Paul!  Be sure to get GI Joe (with not adjectives or superlatives) added to your pull list TODAY!

There's an intermission in there where Erik had to solve a cash register crisis, so enjoy some appropriate intermission music.

WOJM 116: Dogs Of Dún Laoghaire

With Carson still away from the microphone due to his recent wedding, Mark Weber returns to hosting for the second consecutive regular episode!  In this episode, news about the upcoming G.I. Joe movie is discussed, Hasbro's struggles in finding a home for its animation studio are noted, the most recent flood of Postsac letters are cleared, and the gang teams up to give Bobby Vala's Action Force Kickstarter one last... well, kick.  Also, Mike struggles with pronunciation, Joe finds an issue with "Man's Best Friend," and Mark continues to hide from Tim Roberts!  It's equal parts madcap fun and honest-to-goodness GI Joe discussion in the Wonderful WOJM Way!

Special Edition 59: 2019 Joefest Wrap-Up

Congratulations to WOJM co-host Carson Mataxis on his marriage!

Carson's nuptials force Mike and Joe to record alone as they wrap up their experiences from Joefest weekend.  Joe pitches a new YouTube show for the WOJM channel, Mike provides tales from his time as an accidental storm chaser, and the intrepid hosts cover any experience that wasn't recorded in an On The Spot segment.  It's another hour of fun, frolic, nostalgia, and constructive criticism in the Wondrous WOJM Way!

On The Spot: More Fun At The Joe Colton Booth

Mike returns to Joe's booth, where they appease the food fetishists, take selfies while recording, and accost a show-goer into showing off his prize purchase, a chromed helicopter.  Mike plugs Cook Out, a local eatery chain, and begrudgingly names Mary Mercenary his new Head of WOJM Merchandise, since WOJM fans don't buy t-shirts.

On The Spot: A Wild Guillermo Appears!

Joe Colton makes her first appearance of the weekend, and quickly leads Mike down a winding path of insanity.  Then Molly and a wild William appear and drive things further down the rabbit hole.  Joe and Mike attempt to make sense of James' booth but ultimately logic fails and entropy reigns.

On The Spot: Carson and the Business Center

Mike and Carson discuss the Skeletron from today's Joefest Custom Class and get a plug or twenty in for John "Alyosha" Russell, Chicken Fried Toys, Joe A Day, Dime Novel Legends, Smalljoes.com, 3D Joes, and of course, #WOJM.  Page Wagner is on hand and Mike tries to get him to laugh on-air.

There's a little bit more production value on this On The Spot report than most... we were interrupted by a friend of Carson's who was completely oblivious to our recording.  You'll recognize that point when the Match Game theme hits.  Be sure to check out pictures of Skeletron on our Facebook page!

Special Edition 58: An Interview With Arthur Burghardt

ALL HAIL DESTRO!  Arthur Burghardt, the unmistakable voice of Destro from Marvel/Sunbow's G.I. Joe cartoon, returns to the world of G.I. Joe with Mike and Joe!  (Please forgive the occasional spot of poor audio quality - Arthur was not using Skype but his phone, so the connection did have a couple of iffy moments.)  Arthur tells of his time in the studio as Destro, Stalker, and Iceberg, recounts his friendship with the late Chris Latta, his favorite movie project*, talks about the rigors of writing your own material, and recounts some personal stories from his past.  It's an unforgettable hour and a half, and we're really humbled by Arthur's decision to visit WOJM for his first-ever podcast interview!   

(* - we never went back to name the movie during the interview, but it's 1998's Star Kid, which is available now to stream on both Hulu and Prime.  Arthur voices Cyborsuit - check it out soon!)

Arthur will be at RoboToyCon on June 9 in Pasadena, CA, so be sure to give this a listen before you head out to meet him in person!

WOJM 115: Searching For Tim Roberts

Former G.I. Joe brand head honcho Mark Weber rejoins Mike and Joe in the WOJM studio, and gives some insight to collecting in Bend, Oregon, in the 1980s.  (Suffice to say, rivalries - perhaps blood feuds? - were born, because there wasn't a whole lot to go around.)  To that end, enjoy Mark's tales of squaring off with the soon-to-be legendary Tim Roberts!

Plus, there's a slew of movie news and a full and hearty Postsac, complete with a call to action from YouTube's Cobra Commander 788!  Two more hours of madness, courtesy of WOJM!

WOJM 110: The New Normal

NOTE TO ASPIRING PODCASTERS: Never try to "squeeze in" a recording just ahead of a major storm. Sound quality is not great for some of this episode and it was a four-week nightmare to try to save, but SAVED IT WAS! Carson picks up a new sponsor, Joe regales the boys with drunken tales of Dragon Con, and Mike tries to get everyone to just plug the show. Yes, it's business as usual on this episode of What's On Joe Mind? Download, enjoy, and tell your friends RIGHT NOW!!

WOJM 108: Quick & Dirty 2017

It's the annual Quick 'n' Dirty "Live" Pre-JoeCon Edition!  "Live" just really means that Gary didn't put much effort behind editing this other than dropping in the opening and exit cuts.  So you get to hear every "um," "ah," studder, long awkward pause and lame joke that we normally record yet we edit out 99% of the time.  The gang talks about the Joes of 2008, goes over the JoeCon schedule and touches on the news, in addition to the very popular Creepy Fanboy Emails to Joe and Postsac segments.  We'll also be making fun of Justin as he has some life-changing surgery on the horizon.  No, this is not re-assignment surgery, so if you are waiting for Justine, you will have to wait AT LEAST to next year.  So, turn up the radio, recline the airplane seat back further, or rest a bag of frozen peas on your groin and enjoy the show!  Safe travels and we'll see you in Orlando!

 

UPDATE: this episode should be 1:53:54.  The previous upload cut off at the 1:07:xx mark.  We re-uploaded the file again, so if you heard this prior to 5pm Eastern on 5/20, you have only heard half of the episode.  This is also a cheap way to inflate downloads and listens.  Did we do this on purpose...or not?  ;)

May 12, 2017  

Special Edition 51: Annual Reading the JoeCon Brochure!

For the 6th consecutive year, we read the JoeCon brochure and give you our tips and tricks on how you can best enjoy the weekend.  We also share in past JoeCon stories and experiences.  Justin reads as Mike, Joe and Gary comment.  Chances are running out!  There are only 2 Official GI Joe Conventions left!!  We'll see you (well, most of us anyway) in Orlando in June!  Enjoy!

May 8, 2017

The long-awaited Part 2 of the epically long Episode 107.  We are joined by Aubrey Sitterson as we discuss comics and what IS and what ISN'T a crossover, plus we share what we got in recently (at the time) and shout outs!
