Episode 108: What’s on JOE Mind?

Posted in WOJM Regular Edition, Justin, Mike, Gary, Conventions & Shows, JoeCon, GIJCC, Joe Colton by whatsonjoemind on June 9th, 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?  ;)

Episode 107: What’s on JOE Mind?

Posted in WOJM Regular Edition, Justin, Mike, Gary, Joe Colton, Buzz Dixon by whatsonjoemind on February 9th, 2017

Yes, yes, yes, blah, blah, blah...yes, I know this is late and they are not timely as they have been in the past, but real life matters.  Stop yer bitchin'!  This is the Holidays/New Year edition.  When we recorded 107, it was shaping up to be a 6 hour epic.  So instead of continue 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-ish...

Episode 106: What’s on JOE Mind?

Posted in WOJM Regular Edition, Justin, Mike, Gary, JoeCon, Chris, Joe Colton, Tom Feister by whatsonjoemind on November 4th, 2016

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 listener-ship!!

Episode 105: What’s on JOE Mind?

Posted in WOJM Regular Edition, Justin, Mike, Gary, JoeCon, Joe Colton by whatsonjoemind on June 13th, 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!!

Episode 103: What’s on JOE Mind?

Posted in WOJM Regular Edition, Justin, Mike, Gary, Joe Colton by whatsonjoemind on May 19th, 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!

Episode 102: What’s on JOE Mind?

Posted in WOJM Regular Edition, Justin, Mike, Gary, Joe Colton by whatsonjoemind on April 24th, 2016
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.

Episode 100: What’s on JOE Mind?

Posted in WOJM Regular Edition by whatsonjoemind on April 21st, 2015

ZOMG!  It's here...finally.  We recorded this well before JoeCon, but it is a MONSTER episode.  We figured we should put out something worthy of 100, so here is our biggest show ever!  It's all about you the listeners and us thumping our chest a little bit.  Afterall, 100 shows is no small feat.  It takes a lot of work and time, so we figured we would enjoy ourselves on this one, share some memories and look back at what make the previous 99 so special.  Along the way we are joined by Bill Murphy from Fresh Monkey Fiction and Craig from Zica Toys to talk to us about their Captain Action and Eagle Force revival campaigns who talk to us about their upcoming Kickstarter slated for later this summer.  They share with us a big announcement that you will want to hear!  We are also joined by Cobra Commander...yes, the genuine article joins us to read your letters in the mailbag.  It's all the pre-JoeCon news, your calls and our memories.  Thanks for listening and being part of this awesome ride!  We hope you enjoy this epic #100.

Episode 99: What’s on JOE Mind?

Posted in WOJM Regular Edition by whatsonjoemind on February 15th, 2015

As a staff, we had been planning Episode 99 for a while.  We already recorded a very interesting interview with former Lanard and Mattel Designer, and huge Joe fan, Hawk Sanders that we knew everyone would love.  It seemed like every time we needed the co-hosts to get together on this, something was always preventing the recording from happening.  Whether it was Gary or Justin missing because of work, or it was Mike taking a longer than needed nap, the stars never did quite align when we wanted them to.  We recorded the bulk of this show on Tuesday, February 3rd, 2015.  Justin could not join because of work and a lousy Super Bowl victory hangover.  So we went to the WOJM sub pool to find someone who could step in.  We could think of no other than JoeDeclassified's Gary "Goggles" Head to fill the role.  Gary was more than accepting to join, even crafting time away from his family on Tuesday night to record with us into the wee hours of Wednesday morning.  It is a GREAT episode.  We had good news, we talked about the convention set, we had good letters which sparked great discussion and Gary filled us in with what we would see at the Declass booth in Springfield.  We ended this episode with great laughs and hearty good byes knowing that we'd be seeing each other and talking to each other soon.  Sadly, on the afternoon of February 7th, we lost Gary to what has been described as a heart condition.  Needless to say, as we all considered Gary, not only a friend of the program, but as personal friends too, we were shocked.  Words are tough to come by to describe our sadness and remorse.  This episode is dedicated to Gary's memory.  His loss cannot be measured.  He was one-of-a-kind.  He will be missed.  Thank you Gary for ALL you did for the GI Joe Community and WOJM.

When you are done listening to this episode, our friends at JoeDeclassified setup a fund to help support Gary's family in their time of need.  We encourage you to give what you can.  Every little bit helps.  Thank you.

Episode 98: What’s on JOE Mind?

Posted in WOJM Regular Edition by whatsonjoemind on December 20th, 2014

Just in time for the holiday break, we give you #98!  In this episode Gary and Noted Author James give you an on-the-spot report at Iowa's Assembly Required show.  We also sit down with WOJM SuperGuest Bill Ratner and talk to him about his latest book and other projects he is working on.  In the news "One Tank" Mike reports on what happened at Roll Out Roll Call in Southampton UK.  We also discuss the unfortunate news of a former guest and community contributor passing.  In the mailbag we got two very good letters, one razzing Chuck (YAY!) and the other sparking a lively debate on the wildly speculated (yet no actual facts thereof) a 6" Joe line.  Lastly, as JoeCon nears, WOJM and veteran newsman Ted Baxter get you ready for Springfield by giving you facts about the town in an all new segment we hope you like.  Hope you all enjoy!  Happy Holidays from all of us!  Stay safe!

Episode 97: What’s on JOE Mind?

Posted in WOJM Regular Edition by whatsonjoemind on November 17th, 2014

Not exactly a timely episode, but hey, not a lot is going on.  No worries, #98 is right around the corner.  You may be wishing for it after you hear Chuck ramble in the opening segment.  We basically catch up on some old news, discuss COIL Con V and have a small roundtable on the Club wanting to experiment with Shattered Glass and more TF/Joe Crossovers...which make Gary very grumpy.  Enjoy the funk!

00:0000:00



Episode 96: What’s on JOE Mind?

Posted in WOJM Regular Edition by whatsonjoemind on August 23rd, 2014

This episode we talk some more Kickstarter with Carson from 3DJoes.com and his new ongoing poster campaign.  Get the details here.  Later on we talk with Chris from the COIL Club about the upcoming COIL Con V show in Indianapolis on Sept 13th.  In the news we talk 50th Anniversary, SDCC AND finally details about the upcoming WOJM Fantasy Football season.  It's a short but packed show.  Enjoy!

Episode 95: What’s on JOE Mind?

Posted in WOJM Regular Edition, Kirk Bozigian, Boss Fight Studios, Michael Dobson by whatsonjoemind on July 19th, 2014

It was an epic record night as we watched the start of the monumental final 24 hours of the Boss Fight Studio Kickstarter campaign.  We also include in this program an interview with GI Joe voice talent, Michael Dobson and get his impressions of JoeCon.  Speaking of JoeCon, we are also joined by JoeCon regular Kirk Bozigian as shares some memories of working with the late Don Levine, also known as the father of GI Joe.  Lastly, after regular news and mailbag segments, we are surprised by the Boss Fight crew and we get their opinions of what the last 39 days have been like and what is next for Vitruvian HACKS.  We hope you enjoy this one!  Even Chuck was on his A-game...yeah, we know, its hard to believe!! 

00:0000:00



Episode 94: What’s on JOE Mind?

Posted in WOJM Regular Edition, Chuck, Justin, Mike, Gary, Arune, Bill Ratner by whatsonjoemind on June 11th, 2014

Bill Ratner is BACK!  Yes, the man you know as Flint has BLOWN up lately.  You can hear his voice on commercials from cars to cookies.  Despite being a most awesome guest, he holds GI Joe near and dear to his heart.  You can catch him next at the Hollywood Fringe Festival, June 18-21 and 25-28 performing LIVE and ON STAGE: The True Life Adventures of Barbie and GI Joe.  What has Flint gotten himself into THIS time?  Also...Arune Singh is BACK!  That's right, our good buddy with Marvel Television stops in to talk about how cool (or not cool if you are Gary) a Joe/Transformers crossover would be.  Prompted by the new IDW title, Arune thought the time was right to put it up for debate.  You might be surprised how the gang reacts.  In addition, all the latest about the Boss Fight Kickstarter, mailbag and all the good stuff we got in since JoeCon.  We're back on track!  Enjoy!

00:0000:00



Episode 92: What’s on JOE Mind?

Yes!  It was on its deathbed, but it got resurrected.  Thanks to some long hours of editing we managed to piece together.  The background on this show: well, we recorded this a few weeks before JoeCon.  During the recording, the raw files on the primary recording PC basically corrupted.  However, as ANY good podcast should be doing, a backup recording was being made.  All hail Chuck for saving the day.  Unfortunately, the show is now very dated.  We had on Kirk Bozigian to tease us about his JoeCon panel and a return visit by Chris Sims, who brought along Chad Bowers to talk about their football themed super hero comic, "Down, Set, Fight".  In a further bout of bad fortune, this interview was supposed to air WAY back in Feburary to coincide with the launch of their book.  FAIL!  We're not pros, but we sure did have a fun time talking about Football, Marvel's NFL Super Pro, MegaForce, Smokey and the Bandit and...GI Joe.  Outside of the interviews we were joined by Boss Fight Studio's own, the esteemed Andrew Franks.  We've missed the fans, and hopefully you missed this too - enough to listen to an old, nearly lost episode. 

00:0000:00



Episode 93: What’s on JOE Mind?

Posted in WOJM Regular Edition, Chuck, Justin, Mike, Gary, JoeCon, Don by whatsonjoemind on April 8th, 2014

Why episode 93?!  Well, because episode 92 is not ready yet.  However, this one is ready and why make anyone wait?  It's our "LIVE" show before JoeCon.  Once again we are joined by the Vice President of The Crappy Figure Brigade, Don Anderson.  We finally let Chuck talk a little wrestling, but really this episode is about one thing, JoeCon.  The guys will preview the convention schedule and will give you an up-to-the-minute AccuWeather forecast for Dallas. It's raw and unfiltered and contains 50% more Chuck - so play this out of earshot of kids. 

00:0000:00



Episode 91 WOJM & Episode 16 of the JoeCustoms Podcast

Posted in WOJM Regular Edition, Justin, Mike, Dave, Pluv, Dan, JoeCustoms Podcast by whatsonjoemind on March 24th, 2014

Pluv and Dan from the JoeCustoms Podcast join us for a very informal roundtable crossover edition of WOJM.  Substituting again for Chuck is Dave from the Dave and Devall's Toys & Collectables Podcast. Plus the guys talk Joe from 1991, discuss the news, dip into the mailbag and much much more! 

00:0000:00



Episode 90: What’s on JOE Mind?

Posted in WOJM Regular Edition, Justin, Mike, JoeCon, FSS, Erik, Dave, BJ Ward by whatsonjoemind on March 15th, 2014

Erik from Boss Fight Studios and Dave from the "Dave and Devall's Toys & Collectables" Podcast help co-host with Justin and Mike as they wrap up the latest from FSS2 and the upcoming Joe Convention in Dallas.  That's right, NO CHUCK, but 3 times the fun!  We also feature yet another interview with a famous voice from Sunbow's path, none other than BJ Ward dials in to talk with us about Scarlett and her upcoming appearance at JoeCon!  Gary is taking a few episodes off, so special thanks to Maximus for the edit job.
