flag-points-podcast-logoFor those that need a little something to get through their mornings, or for their commute home, is another great episode of the great Flag Points podcast! In episode #20 the guys Dave, Don & Rob are joined by special guest, Kirk Bozigian! For those that may not be familiar with Kirk, he was the G.I. Joe Product Manager and the VP of Boy’s Toys Marketing back in the ’80s, and ’90s. Bozigian‘s likeness was also used for creating the portrait of “Law”, of the ’87 Law & Order figure. He is a man with a wealth of knowledge when it comes to our beloved G.I. Joe brand, and he shares quite a bit of it with the Flag Points crew. So head on over to their PodBean page, or search in iTunes for “Flag Points” to get the latest episode, or even one of their previous ones too!

UnderScoopFire Podcast #26 — A Roundtable Discussion of G.I. Joe Fans

Posted by on Monday, March 12th, 2012

community-showcaseA short while back I was asked by Howie Decker of the UnderScoopFire website and podcast if I would be interested in joining in on a G.I. Joe roundtable discussion with some fellow Joe fans. Without any hesitation I said yes. Then some time passed, schedules filled up, Howie eventually approached us again to see if we were still interested. All of us still were, so it was fast-tracked to get everyone together to record the podcast.

So on, Sunday, March 12th, we all sat down in our respective studios and recorded the UnderScoopFire Podcast, episode #26. Led by Howie Decker, and joined by myself, Justin of GeneralsJoes.com, Dave from the Flag Points podcast and UnderScoopFire’s very own Joe Zicari, we spent almost 2 hours discussing G.I. Joe. So you now have something for your morning commute to work, or something to pass by your morning at work. Check out UnderScoopFire Podcast #26 here
