Mike finds Noted Author James Kavanaugh amidst the chaos of the Joefest sales floor, and they chat about the new, updated Volume 4 of Rank & File, as well as the other fine wares at his booth. If you're coming to the show, find James and make a deal!
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!!
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!!
ZOMG!!! What is this?! WOJM content has been posted that isn't either Football or Boss Fight related?! It is a joyous day!! Yes, yes, with the site of JoeCon 2016 just being announced, I guess now is just as good of a time to post the audio from our live show from JoeCon 2015 in Springfield. Joining us on stage that day was a near who-who of published (or soon to be) GI Joe authors. When you mention author on our show, you can't go too far in thought without Noted Author James Kavanaugh coming to mind. James joins us once again to talk about his new (at the time) RAHC Rank & File Guide! We also have Tim Finn join us to talk about his work in progress: A Real American Book! Next we are joined by Carson Mataxis (who is really wanting that 4th chair with us) and his new book: Collecting the Art of GI Joe, Vol 1. All of these authors and their books, its like the Opra show...without the free stuff under your seat!! Lastly, Brian Cummings impromptly (is that a word?) joins us on stage in a quick follow up to our earlier interview with him. Its a whole lotta info smashed into less than an hour! We'll have another real episode very soon, we promise. Thanks for listening!
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!
Join regular hosts, Mike and Gary along with regular guest hosts, Noted Author James Kavanaugh and Senior Comic Desk Correspondent Mo Hunger as the team spends a day at the inaugural Indy Toy and Comic Expo.
Since it is a TOY and COMIC and EXPO, the team decided to cover each aspect of the show, whether it was about GI Joe or not.
The TOY segment, the guys talk to James about his upcoming sequel to his RAHC Guide and do an on-hand review of the Eaglehawk helicopter - all the while we have the EXTENDED Cut of Retaliation playing in the background. (Some spoilers here, so consider yourselves warned NOW!)
The COMIC segment, the guys talk with Mo Hunger about the current state of the Joe IDW universes and her son Phoenix drops a promo for us.
The EXPO segment, the guys are joined by Celebrity Guest Host - MAXIMUS host of The Maximus Show, evenings on 103.9 The Bear from South Bend, Indiana - as they cover the costume contest.
Lastly, in segment 4 (aka the unnamed segment), Mike and Gary wrap up a full day on the follow and set the table for COIL Con IV - FEATURING STREET HAWK - coming up next!
It's a very laid back hour or so of on the floor reporting. Hope you enjoy it!
We would like to thank the promoters for including us in their inaugural show. We really enjoyed ourselves!
Editors note: one of the mic or mic cables seemed to be cutting in and out. Since it was a live event, there is very little ways to predict these even doing a sound check prior to recording. We'll get it squared away before our next live recording at COIL Con. We apologize in advance.
So were our trio drunk or not for Special Edition #29...or did they lead you to think that? Well if you think that is controversial, wait until you hear this report, "LIVE" from the sales floor. Join Mike, Justin and Gary as they record directly out of the COIL Club's booth, which is dead center of the sales floor. The guys will report on what has happened thus far to this point in the show and interview friends and listeners as they stroll by. You will also recognize two of the personalities we talk to as regular show "contributors". Who could they be? You have to listen and find out. No beers were consumed during this recording, but if you hate the consumption of donuts, you may want to skip this one. Enjoy!!
It's our second ever listener call in show! We put the news, email, and Twitter on hold and take your calls and answer your questions! Show friend, Erik Arana hangs out with us and gives us a unique perspective on our hobby. If you don't know who Erik is, you need to listen in! Special appearances by WOJM contributors Eduardo M Freyre (with a lemon twist), Ryan Costello, Jr. WOJM Twitter laureate, Twitziller, Noted Author, James Kavanaugh, Jr. and Numbers from Ages 25 and Up. It's a festive, from the hip episode where the only thing that matters is taking your calls...and making fun of Chuck. Enjoy!
Program co-hosts Greg and Gary venture up north to Toronto for the 2011 Canadian Joe Convention.

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.
