On The Spot: Donut Pandemonium

Special Edition 60: Morgan Lofting’s Baroness Round Table

Joe Colton and Sara Detrick take the reigns for this interview with Sunbow's irreplaceable Baroness, Morgan Lofting!  Morgan takes her intrepid hosts through her passage through "The Biz" and beyond, touching on such widespread topics as fan conventions and ancient European history.  It's an enlightening hour - wear a loose hat and let your mind expand!

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.

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!

Special Edition 55: An Interview with Mark Bellomo

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. Thanks for tuning in, and be sure to check out our other recent episodes!

Despite Mark being an evil Patriots fan, he redeems himself for his love GI Joe.  Want MOAR Mark?  Check out our past interviews with him here:

WOJM 111: Ladies’ Night 3!

October is both Breast Cancer Awareness Month and Domestic Violence Awareness Month, so the team decided it was a good time to give the keys to Joe Colton and bring back our Ladies' Night tradition (Ladies Night III to be exact)! Joining Joe is Spider-Slayer and Tinkles (old friends of the show Sara Detrick and Kate McLeod), and together they'll explore the world of GI Joe from a feminine perspective - from cosplaying to collecting and may stops in between. You'll also learn the origins of their special code names (for the record, Joe's is "Sniffles") and have a laugh or twenty along the way. Pour yourself a favorite beverage - just like our hostesses with the mostesses - and enjoy!  

PS, if you enjoyed this edition of Ladies Night, go back into our archives and listen to Ladies Night I and II.  You won't be disappointed.

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!!

August 5, 2018  

Special Edition 54: Panel @ The 2018 Ohio Toy & Comic Show!

Noted Author James Kavanaugh gets Gary, Joe, and Mike to fall in for Rank & File Vol.4 at the Ohio Toy & Comic Show! The gang also talked more about the 2018 GIJCC and took some time for Q&A with the crowd at this live appearance. All this plus Debbie Godsoe! DOWNLOAD NOW!!

July 26, 2018  

Special Edition 53: 2018 JoeCon Wrap Up!

It's the last JoeCon!  They've been home for weeks, but join Mike, Joe, and Carson as they unpack from the 2018 Joecon! They've got stories to tell, news to spread, and Joe may even shed a tear or two! What's next for the community?  What's On Joe Mind RIDES AGAIN!!

January 2, 2018  

WOJM 109: 2017 Holiday Extravaganza!

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!)

June 9, 2017  

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  

WOJM 107 Part 2: Electric Boogaloo

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!

February 9, 2017  

WOJM 107 Part 1: Tardy Holidays!

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!

November 4, 2016  

WOJM Episode 106: Loveland, Reviewed

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!!

Special Edition 50: LIVE from JoeCon - The See You Next Year Edition!

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!!
 
Enjoy!

On The Spot: Exclusive Interview with Derryl DePriest & Mark Weber

The gang get a chance to talk to Hasbro's Derryl DePriest and Mark Weber following the events of Saturday. It's an informative interview, so stick around!  You won't want to miss this!

June 13, 2016  

WOJM Episode 105: Quick & Dirty 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.  ;)

 

Enjoy!!
June 12, 2016  

WOJM Episode 104: The Green Mile?

We talk about the Joes from 2004, catch up on the news, begin to set the table of what will happen at JoeCon...and generally get side tracked - A LOT.  Download it now and listen to it on your way to JoeCon!

 

Speaking of JoeCon, be sure to catch Mike, Gary, Joe and Chris McLeod from the Full Force at our JoeCon panel on Sunday, June 19th at 1:00.  It will be the last ever panel at JoeCon. Join us as we turn out the lights...forever (maybe, maybe not, we will see - we're looking at you Hasbro!) ;-)

WOJM Episode 103: Christmas In May

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!

April 24, 2016  

WOJM Episode 102: Joe Colton Debuts

This whole episode will speak for itself.  New 4th chair, Joe Colton officially joins the rotation!  Zack Hoffman and Brian Cummings join us to talk about JoeCon 2015 in our first ever double-interview.  None of this episode is timely - AT ALL, but we hope you enjoy it nevertheless.  We have two more shows in the "can" that we will be working on in the coming weeks.  So, something to look forward to.  In the meantime, help the #savegijoe campaign and sign the petition by going to www.savegijoe.org or https://www.change.org/p/hasbro-save-gi-joe.

 

Thanks to everyone for their patience and understanding during our "hiatus."  It has been a busy year-of-change for all of the hosts.
