And it’s a whopper! We had initially scheduled this episode to post an interview with Flint Dille, and we certainly accomplished that…but not only that, we also feature G.I. Joe legend Larry Hama, and G.I. Joe: Operation Red Retrieval masterminds Mark Cheng (director) and Joe Barbagallo (Beachhead). Mark, Joe, and Larry come on the show to make a very special announcement, and you will hear it FIRST right here on the podcast!

YES! This IS episode 47 despite Gary calling it 48 in the opening – d’oh! Oh well, it couldn’t be edited out to sound seamless, so we’ll run with it. Yeah, it was a matter of time before that happened. Welcome to Episode 47 folks! You won’t want to miss this one for TWO name alone. No, not Justin and Mike, try Flint Dille AND Larry Hama! They both join us as guests ON THE SAME SHOW. Yeah folks, no kidding! First up is Flint who talks about a wide range of his previous work and its not all Joe and Robot talk either. Visionaries, Inhumanoids and even Buck Rogers take up some significant talk time. Hopefully, if you are like us, you found what he had to say truly fascinating and chalk full of information. IMMEDIATELY following Flint, we are joined by Operation Red Retrieval Director Mark Cheng who brought along 2 special guests to make an exclusive announcement on WOJM. Joining Mark was the actor who played Beach Head in Operation Red Retreval, Joe Barbagallo and GI Joe writing legend Larry Hama. What are they announcing? What could Mark and Larry possibly be up to? Well, listen and find out! In the news, the GIJCC launches a new secure website, Retaliation figures begin to appear on eBay via China and a new Joe/Robot trade is set for a September release. Now, you may also be asking yourself, “Self, where is the Kevin Michael Richardson interview?” Well, with this episode being so packed, we decided to push back the interview another week or so so that we may focus all of our attention on the guests who joined us this week. You WILL hear the KMR interview in its entirety very very soon. Until then, sit back and enjoy Episode 48….er, I mean 47 of WOJM!!
