Shelf Life - A Collector's Podcast
32. Whatever Happened To GI Joe?
BOTH Arnett brothers join us this time, including new guest and GI Joe fanatic Jon, as we delve into the most iconic plastic army men of the Reagan era. We wonder--and expert Jon helps us unpack--why doesn't anyone like GI Joe anymore? EVEN MORE of the Arnett family history is revisited, as it is so inextricably tied up in GI Joe nostalgia. We go beyond just Joe talk too, and broach cerebral topics like the psychology of our collecting addictions, and the dark nature of capitalism itself. But don't worry, we spend plenty of time talking about Chuckles! Jon recounts the glory days of the insane folks on the GI Joe forums in great detail. Then there is some...disagreement between Jon and Blake about Batman and Tom King. Had to shut that shit down.
Music: More Of That (new album out now on your favorite streaming services!)
