Chris Perrin’s Top 10

Look for others to follow this morning leading up to our Daily Show this afternoon.

Gen Con Tomorrow

Its Wednesday, the last setup day before the best 4 days in Gaming. We have feet on the ground since yesterday and Mario Dongu, your host, has been busy preparing for what will be the massive return of This Just In From… I do know David Moore is preparing to be in route later today as of this posting.

We have been recording intros, outros, bumpers, and planning interviews and schedules the past week in preparation in bringing you Live coverage (Well live with a 2-3 hour delay) each day from Gen Con.

Our Daily show plan is to release that each day starting tomorrow by 3pm CST each day. We will also drop Interviews, snippets, and anything cool we can find throughout the day. I would venture expect more content each day as the con goes on.

I, Mark Reed, will be running hosting duties back here in the TJI Twin Cities studios and I am sure Chris Perrin in our Kansas City Offices will chime in from time to time, cause you know he always has an opinion and is Awesome at that.

Well I am excited and we will be launching shows real soon so stay with us and keep checking in here for the first show.

Gen Con Days Away

This is a bit of an apology and a bit of info. After we got funded we got to work, and then life happened. We have not gone dark but we have saddled up and ridden forth. Starting Thursday this week we will be launching TJI From… Gen Con. This Just In From will host daily shows as well as interviews to bring you the Gen Con Experience.

We Have scaled back from our initial plans due to funding that wasn’t what we hoped for but we are planning to post every possible interview, game, dealer hall member, fans feedback, and just whatever Mario and David can and will put together.

Stay tuned today as we will be launching the RSS Feed that you all can subscriber to follow This Just In From… and this time it’s from Gen Con.

We got Funded!

A HUGE Thank you to all of our Bakers who helped get our Kickstarter Funded.  Now I get to work on getting those awards sent out to all of you.

This Just In From….. Metatopia

This Just In From… Metatopia

This Just In From…, the podcast devoted to bringing you convention coverage, formerly This Just In From Gen Con, is happy to announce that they will take their show on the Road one more time this year. Already scheduled to attend and bring  the Gen Con experience to its listeners, TJIF has been asked to come to Metatopia in Morristown New Jersey to bring that wonderful convention experience to those who can’t attend.

Metatopia, the designers convention, is devoted to bringing together Game Designers from all over to play test and workshop new game ideas. One of the largest gatherings of developers with the single focus of Game Design and testing, Metatopia has proven it is a convention for designers by designers.

This Just In From.. producer Mark Reed had this to say. “We are excited that Metatopia invited us to come to their show. This is a huge step for us as we take what traditionally has been a one con show to a second con. We are eager to showcase this great convention and introduce it to larger audience.”



This Just In From… is produced by Heroic Journey Productions. It is a cornerstone Podcast of the TJI Network and can be found at

Metatopia is presented by Double Exposure, Inc, the folks behind DEXCON, DREAMATION and the First Exposure Hall at Gen Con. Find them at, @de_gaming on twitter or on Facebook. 

Just reminder on the Kickstarter

This Just In From… Kickstarter

We have a little Kickstarter going on to help raise some extra funds we need to get us to Gen Con to provide the type of shows we know we can produce.

If you can please consider picking up some swag to show your support or if you want to sponsor a show you can as well. Even if you’re not going you can throw your name and your cool out to everyone who listens.

Happenings behind the scenes

We are working tirelessly behind the scenes here at the TJI Studios to get prepped for the re-launch of the show as we begin to take it to a brand new direction while maintaining the vision and quality of what came before. We have the staff and the drive we just need you the listener to come back.

We are planning our first recording session and should have a few new episodes up soon. I wanted to let you know a few things and what you can expect.

Prior to Gen Con we are planning to release a few “People you need to meet” episodes. These will be short 10 minute episodes that will allow you to meet a few of the attendees/booth/personalities that will be at the convention that you should go see. These will begin no later then July if not earlier depending on how many people we can wrangle in.

Also we will record a few Studio shows that will give you a chance to get familiar with the new hosts as we discuss what we are excited about and what looks to be the new cool this year at Gen Con. Its our way of getting you “In the Know!” for this year.

Finally today I want to ask you a question valued fan. We are working on expanding TJI to be more a network of shows. This Just In From… will be our convention & news program, bringing you the experiences of some of the best gaming conventions out there, but what other type of podcast/video casts would you like to see out of TJI?
