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!

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.

With Joe and Carson MIA, we had to turn to reinforcements for November's episode. Even though there's not a lot of product right now, there's a whole lot in the news! Join Mike, and guest hosts Fred Meyer (of Just Another GI Joe Show) and Mark Weber (former head of the GI Joe brand at Hasbro) as they try to make sense of what's going on at Hasbro, review the GIJCC's last-ever offerings, and share stories of twenty-eight toed cats. Pack a lunch, this one checks in just under three hours!
ALSO: The recording got a little spotty at times after the first hour. It's mostly okay, but if you find a rough spot... SHUT UP ABOUT IT.

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.

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!!

January 2, 2018
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.

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!
November 22, 2016
On this edition of the world’s leading, Action Force Chodcast; we have a packed NEWS segment courtesy of JUSTIN BELL at GENERAL'S JOES containing; movie news from G.I. JOE 3 and M.A.S.K., convention news from GRANITE STATE COMIC CON, COIL CON 7 & HASCON, comic news from IDW’s REVOLUTION universe and toy news from HASBRO & 1000TOYS/BAIT!!

Joe Revolution fame, we have a SUPER FIGURE REVIEW and FROM THE VAULT that focuses on the shiniest helmet of all soldiers, SUPER TROOPER! We have a gruesome MALE BAG segment, WHAT WE GOT IN gets out of hand once again and FILE-O-FACTS is back after another bye-week…….FULL FORCE!!
November 18, 2016
The Cubs win, the election is over (oh, BTW, Gary was right!), so now the focus is back to football. The race is tight as even among the divisions, but will the tie breakers make it impossible for the challengers to make up ground? Find out what the team thinks! Enjoy!
November 4, 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 loyalty!!

In the Hama, Jamie moves to 7-1 with Debbie, coming off her first ever Couch Bowl win, is following closely behind at 6-2. Over in the Dixon, Ty Samms and Da Busters suffer a setback but still control the division with the Privateers and Wild Bills not too far behind. Celeb entrant, Zach Hoffman is struggling after a 4-0 start, losing his last 4 to even up his record at 4-4. Gary manages to save SOME face this week as he improved his record to a still-poor 2-6 but putting a 143 point pasting of the equally as hapless RHPs. We're half way through the season, and even though it looks slim for some, still ANYTHING can happen! Plus the guys give "live" updates of Game 6 of the Cubs-Indians World Series and analize the Cubs choice of pitchers to close out the 8th and 9th innings. And if that isn't enough, they all make their Election Day predictions for President. Find out who of the 3 hosts the bleeding hearts are (hint: it isn't Gary)...enjoy!
October 20, 2016
I am posting this so I don't get fined...
It's been two weeks since our last show and a lot has happened. All of the unbeaten teams have suffered a loss. The RHPs...er, LSPs rallied up in a big way and got back-to-back wins to end their start-of-season woes. The Warriors on the other hand, lost their 3rd game THIS YEAR...BY A SINGLE POINT. The difference between 4-2 and 1-5 is just that close. As you would guess, the former two time division championship winning owner, Gary, is pretty mad. So mad, he offers little to say. So that means this will be a short episode. So enjoy this one on your commute!

Gary loses yet another to his hated rival (Note: Gary is a hater, but he just hates his rival's team, not the rival himself, although...if he beats him again, he may change his mind). Ty, Jamie and Zack remain undefeated. Poor Rock and the now named LSP's got doubled up (and then some) to drop to 0-4 and remain as the lone winless squad. Who'd thought that the infamous RHP's and Cleveland Browns would have something in common. The New England Taco's get some league intervention and field a full line up this week. Hey speaking of New England, the chowdaheadz get Tom Brady is back and for the first time ever, and with two patriot players on his squad, Gary is happy with that. Enjoy!
