Anyone who has watched an animated series from the 80s and 90s has likely watched something Larry Houston had a hand in. An exceedingly prolific storyboard artist, director, and all around animation legend, Houston was directly involved in much of the Sunbow product, and most famously was the storyboard director for quite possibly the greatest three minutes in animated G.I. Joe history, the opening to 1987’s G.I. Joe: The Movie.
Mike and I sat down and talked all about his work on G.I. Joe as well as other landmark animated series of the time and he was a fantastic interview.
Holy cow, this is what happens when you don’t post a new episode for a while… the What’s on Joe Mind podcast has posted a new episode of their G.I. Joe podcast, and it’s a big ‘un!
FIVE FREAKING HOURS of content crammed into this tiny audio file, encompassing hours of recording, editing, and production work. Big props to all the work done behind the scenes, and I hope everyone enjoys this latest mammoth episode.
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!!
Along with their exclusive interview with Derryl and Mark, the What’s on Joe Mind folks posted a ton of content from JoeCon including several One Shots and of course the live show to wrap up Con this year.
All of the audio has been posted to the Podbean site and can be checked out below. Hours upon hours of G.I. Joe audio sex!
The 2016 G.I. Joe Convention is now in the bag, and the What’s on Joe Mind crew has posted a veritable barrage of content straight from Loveland, Colorado!
There are a bunch of links coming up, all of which can be found on the What’s on Joe Mind Podbean page. No doubt the highlight of the Con was the crew’s exclusive interview with Hasbro representatives Mark Weber and Derryl DePriest. After the jump you can also check out “One Shot” shows from the Con floor as well as the Shut out the Lights wrap up panel from JoeCon itself.
Check out the Hasbro interview below.
