Episode 5: Issue 5 - Tanks For The Memories

Joes, Attenhut!
Fall in!

Presenting for your listening pleasure, Episode 5: Issue 5 - Tanks For The Memories

In our fifth almost double sized episode, Ryan and myself (Aaron Moss) are joined by Jif Fishman from Comic Book Fight Club podcast and the Quantum Cast.  Due to real world interfering, Kyle Benning is unable to join us this episode.  But fear not... he will return.  This episode, as you might be able to tell from the cover and the title, the Joes are in a tank, fighting Cobra!  How did this happen and why?  Listen for further details.....

As far as the G.I. Joe cartoon, this month we look at the third episode entitled "The Worms of Death".

This episode first aired September 14, 1983 and was written by Ron Friedman.

 Finally, join me as I have about an hour long talk with writer Jim Beard.  Jim is a fan of the G.I. Joe Adventure Team figures from the late 60's/early 70's.

Jim mentions the G.I. Joe View-Master.  I've included some pictures of the View-Master:

Appears to be a G.I. Joe: ARAH View-Master

And we also talk about the G.I. Joe Chest Winch which can be seen here:

As me and Jim was saying, this looks like it could be painful.
