LettermanPiggyback I have what might be called an unnatural love of David Letterman. When I started watching Dave’s show in 1985 I thought it was a revelation of comedy. I couldn’t believe what I was watching.  I was just starting High School and Letterman’s brand of humor and antics were right up my alley.  It was…

Oh man! Another gap between episodes? Yes. Yes it’s true. Both Jason and I have been traveling a bit this Spring so our schedules have been a little wonky. I just got back from Emerald City Comic Con in Seattle and Jason ran off to the Twin Cites for a bit, so we were literally…

LegionofDansLogo When a project starts with an email with the subject line “I’ve got a cockamamie idea…” you know it has to be good! SECRET ORIGINS This podcast was an idea that came to me late last year.   I’ve been in the action figure journalism biz for a long time, and there are a lot…

This weekend kicks off Toy Fair 2015 so since I have an action figure website and Jason has a toy company it only makes sense that we spend a good chunk of this episode talking about toys and the toy industry.  We have quite a bit of “behind-the-scenes” toy talk in this episode so we…

We can still say “Happy New Year” to each other since it’s still January, right?  I thought so. There’s a lot of housekeeping/catch up in this episode.  Since it’s been a few weeks between episodes and there was a holiday “break” we had a chance to see and catch up on a lot of stuff…

You probably noticed that there was a bit of a gap between episodes, but if you are at all internet savvy you will have found both Jason… and I talking about pop culture stuff on a couple of other podcasts.  Hopefully that helped you get some of your GSi “fix” in between episodes. There’s been…

Sorry this episode is a little later than expected. I’ve been a bit busy trying to rally 40,000 collectors to make their voice heard by Toys R Us over this Breaking Dad toy controversy. It’s taken up a lot of my week, but it’s been well worth it as we have quadruple the signatures that…
