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!
And don't forget our brand new merchandise, available at What's On Joe Mall-

Iggy the Cat sits down with his human, Distinguished Author Mark Bellomo, to chat with Mike, Joe, and Carson. Every so often, Mark veers off-subject and talks about the runaway success of The Ultimate Guide To G.I. Joe: 1982-1994, 3rd Edition, toys, fandoms, and his other projects, but thankfully Iggy is there to bring it all back to him! Think of this as a little something extra for the holidays.

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!!

Mike and Joe are joined by Carson Mataxis from 3DJoes.com and Maggie Cogan of The Finest to review the news and chat about the holidays. Along the way, our hearts grew three sizes, and we all gained some respect for Joe's mom, The Little Immigrant. Enjoy! (Opening/closing themes thanks of Funky Butt Brass Band!)

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
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!
April 11, 2017
Mike and Chris interview Blake about his big KONG-er, about the new King Kong movie line from Lanard, and get into the company's long history with making product similar to GI Joe. Enjoy!
February 9, 2017
Yes, yes, yes, blah, blah, blah...yes, we know this is late and they are not timely as they have been in the past, but real life matters. Stop yer gripin'! This is the Holidays/New Year edition. When we recorded 107, it was shaping up to be a six-hour epic. So instead of continuing to make our listeners wait, we are releasing 107 in two parts. Part one consists of our typical show material: The Joes of 2007, more creepy cosplay fanboy messages to Joe, a ton of news, Buzz Dixon makes his triumphant return to the show, and Joe and Justin talk a whole bunch about sexting pics. Yes, a little steamy heat to warm up your cold winter nights. Enjoy Part 1. Part 2 will be out soon!

ZOMG! It's a REAL episode!! Yes, the gang brings you almost FIVE hours of Joe Related Talk...and other subjects...and pointless tangents. Justin was having "family time" so joining us for substitution host duty is Chris McLeod of The Full Force. Since this is our first show since JoeCon (yes, we know it has been that long, but we all have real lives we must live folks), we spend a SIGNIFICANT amount of time in the news doing a day-by-day review of all that went down in Loveland. We also catch up on other topics in the news...all which is old news now, but you can hear what we have to say instead of reading it on a forum or in social media. We also talk to IDW GI Joe artist extraordinaire, Tom Feister as we check in to what projects he has cooking for the rest of the year. All that plus the Joes of 2006 and Inappropriate Cosplay Emails to Joe Colton. We know you will love this new segment! We'll fill you in with our lives in the real world on our next episode, but for now, enjoy this MEGA show...this should last you a couple of days on your commutes...unless you have a long commute and in that case we hope it makes your trip go by that much more rapidly. Thanks for thinking of us! We appreciate your loyalty!!

Mike travels all the way from St. Louis to meet up with Justin in Manchester, NH for Granite City Con 2016. Here is their report.
June 23, 2016
It's our 50th Special Edition! So this was supposed to be the recording of the last ever panel at JoeCon. Well, after the Hasbro panel on Saturday, EVERYTHING changed! So instead of turning out the lights, we're going to see you next year! Mike Irizarry hosts and is joined by Joe "Coin Flip" Colton, Chris "ROM" McLeod, Dave "My Hair IS Combed" Tree, and a voiceless (yet extremely smug) Gary Godsoe. They get a chance to talk to Brian Savage on how the new two year deal with Hasbro materialized and how Orlando quickly took shape. We also hear from Fub Pub's Lanny Latham and we present a special award to Noted Author James Kavanaugh. Since Gary had no voice, he was our roving mic for some Q&A with the audience. The attendees had some great questions including our thought on how the #savegijoe campaign may have helped (or not helped) Hasbro's decision to extend the contract with Fun Pub for another two years. Lastly, what live show isn't complete without a visual gag, in an homage to the Colts-Broncos 1988 Halloween Monday Night Football Game
, all of the hosts were equipped with Justin Bell masks!
Hey, no one said it was going to be pretty!
There may be only TWO more JoeCon's left, so don't miss your chance! We better see you next year in Orlando!!
June 22, 2016

It is our yearly "live" night-before-we-travel-to-JoeCon-episode! Joining us for a quick interview is Jason Bienvenu to talk about his Animal Warriors of The Kingdom Kickstarter campaign. He's a Joe fan and wants to share his action figure passion with the world. After we part with Jason, we talk about the Joes of 2005, Joe tries to set up Mike with her friend Maggie, we go over the complete JoeCon schedule with friend Jim Beutel (from Animal Planet's "When Animals Bang"...), Noted Author James Kavanaugh drops a wrestling-style promo on Joe announcing his intentions to take back the JoeCon cosplay title before retiring the belt for life and we give our commentary on what we expect at the Hasbro and Club roundtables.
Be sure to join us THIS Sunday from 1:00p to 1:50p for our Live JoeCon panel. We will turn out the lights on the convention. Will Mike channel his inner Don Meredith and sing "Turn out the Lights"?
Will James win? Will Mike actually talk to a woman? Will there be a JoeCon in 2017? Answers to these questions and more will be this week. Join us for the speculation!
Reminder, this is our quick and dirty episode. A minimal effort was put into editing of this. If it sounds bad, now you know how much work Gary puts into editing.
June 12, 2016

It's the Christmas in...May edition! Yes, yes, this is another one of those episodes we recorded months ago and are just now getting around to finish editing and posting it. In this episode, we have a hearty discussion about the Joes from 2003. In the news we spend a lot of time talking with Justin about working with Hasbro for the Fan's Choice Kindle World's Character voting process. Justin also asks Joe about her pie. Yes, it is the truth. It's a little more than 90 minutes of fun, so have fun listening!
