Legion Of Dans Podcast epi 002- Childhood Favorites

For the second time this year the FOUR DANS have gathered together to talk about toys in what you earthlings refer to as a “podcast.” In this episode they discuss their favorite reveals from New Your Toy Fair 2015. Two of the Dans were at the show, two were not… will their opinions differ on the cool new items?

In the second half of the show the FOUR DANS discuss their favorite childhood toys, but here’s the catch… they can’t be action figures? What toys do the young Dans cherish most? You’ll have to listen and find out.

AND… for the first time they launch a new feature… THE DAN OF THE MONTH!

This was a project 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 of guys also in the “biz” that I really admired. Then I started to notice a pattern. There were a handful of guys that held a lot of the same philosophy that I did about toys and collecting: That it should be fun, that you should do it because you love it, and if it makes you angry or sad you should find a new hobby that makes you happy.

The the pattern went deeper… all the people that it noticed had the same philosophy also had the same name… and it was the same as MY name. It was then that the “Legion of Dans” was born.

I’m am truly honored to get to work on a project with these fine gentlemen, who’s work I enjoy so much. They are all experts in their own rights and all approach their love of the hobby in different ways.

    Hey Dan, I want to listen to this podcast, but I can't find it on the podcast app I use. I've been able to find your others. I use podcast republic on my Galaxy phone. Can I only find it on certain ones?

      I think at the moment, this one is only available on YouTube. Dan Pickett from AFI is producing this one, and says we should be up on iTunes soon. Once the show is on iTunes you should be able to access it. Sorry about that. I'll make sure to post an announcement once I know it's there.
