The Give Me Five Podcast
About This Show
Remember long nights discussing the entertainment that you love with your friends? We loved talking about movies, music, tv, comics, video games and books in the past but life got in the way. The podcast was founded after three friends started working together on a post-apocalyptic Halloween stage show and realized that they all had strong, interesting takes on the things they loved and missed discussing them. While none of the hosts are experts they all have past experience in media, having worked for radio stations, in the 3D graphics world, and at various entertainment retail stores. We hope to bring a new set of eyes to the things you love and maybe introduce you to your next favorite thing.
3 guys, 5 topics.

Episode 24 And Knowing is Half The Battle
Children of the eighties remember rushing home to catch GI Joe cartoons on TV. Seeing the toys that they played with brought to life was magical and of course the commercials revealed more figures and vehicles to collect. In the eighties there were Star Wars kids, He-Man kids, Transformer kids and of course GI Joe kids. We were the later. The Netflix documentary series “The Toys That Made Us” brought back great memories of Sky Strikers, Night Ravens, Hover Crafts and nite ninjas. And the Give Me Five guys wanted to reminisce about their favorite action figures. Rather than just talk about what toys we had, we enlisted Kirk Bozigian, the former product manager for the GI Joe line at Hasbro from 1982 - 1994, and the basis for the Law action figure. We chatted with Kirk about his time at Hasbro, his experience with the GI Joe line, and his disdain for the Star Wars toys of the 70’s and 80’s. He even graciously shared stories about the figures and how GI Joe rose to the top. He also joined us for the question(s), What are your 5 favorite GI Joe figures? And What are your five favorite GI Joe vehicles? We learned a ton about our favorite toys, and remember learning is half the battle! Oh and we have a store!
