Episode 072 – Season Three Christmas Special

Once again it’s time for Jamon and Q to wrap up the current season of The MJCast podcast, have a little break to recharge, and then come back with our next season in the new year. Without you all tuning in to our little podcast, we wouldn’t be able to do what we do, so thank-you for listening!

Jamon and Q start this episode with a wrap up of the past year at The MJCast and it’s been a big one! They share their favourite moments as it proves too hard to pick just one each.

The boys then offer their final news segment for 2017, covering Paris Jackson’s covershoot and interview for L’uomo Vogue, the recent trademark filings of the Michael Jackson Estate and 2018 concert date announcement for 3T in Italy and France before hearing directly from Jackson Family Correspondent Janneke of Jackson Source about Jermaine Jackson sharing the stage with his sons Jaafar and Jermajesty. Jaafar Jackson also features in the current issue of D’Scene magazine. Wrapping up 2017 news, the fellas cover the recent announcement that The Estate and Sony have extended their business partnership results in an expected response from MJ fans the world over and the newly released Blood on the Dancefloor X Dangerous extended mix. Ending on some good news, Jamon and Q explore the latest development in the Wade Robson molestation allegation court case, which has resulted in a dismissal!

Our Season Three highlights reel features clips from our special episodes this year, with appearances by Tito Jackson, Michael Prince, CJ DeViller, Remixed by Nick*, Ryan Michaels and Charles Thomson, Isabelle Petitjean, Brice Najar, Jonathan “Sugarfoot” Moffett, Vincent Paterson, Hector Barjot, Joseph Vogel, Ola Ray, and most recently, Andy Healy, and Chris Lacy. Then, what’s next for The MJCast? Jamon and Q drop some hints!

Again, thank-you for your support and listenership of The MJCast, it’s been a heck of a ride this year, but we appreciate you being with us for the journey, and look forward to bringing you a new season in 2018. Merry Christmas to you and your loved ones, and best wishes for a wonderful 2018 new year!

Episode 071 – MJ101 Special: Bad 30


Creator of the free MJ 101 eBook series Andy Healy has released his new book, Bad 30, and what a great opportunity for us to explore both the book and the album for our second last episode of Season Three of The MJCast.

Joining returning guest Andy is a new voice for listeners, Chris Lacy. Chris is a lifelong Michael Jackson supporter in more ways than one. His fiery passion for music and dance came from studying Jackson’s artistry while he was growing up on Navy bases. Chris eventually became a dance instructor while learning from Stephen “tWitch” Boss and Allison Holker of So You Think You Can Dance? fame. His appreciation for Michael Jackson expanded beyond the music when he started battling vitiligo at the age of twelve, a skin condition Jackson also endured. Fortunately, his strong Christian faith has not only helped him with his own struggles but has also inspired him to mentor youth who wrestle with various self-esteem issues. Chris is also a Contributing Writer for Albumism with heartfelt tributes for Bad (1987) and Dangerous (1991) under his belt, among others.

Andy, Chris, Jamon and Q explore and discuss the tracks on Michael’s critically and commercially acclaimed late 80’s masterpiece Bad. As Andy was lucky enough to see Michael live through witnessing The Bad World Tour in person, we also get to hear his account of this incredible concert, making us all slightly envious!

Episode 070 – Nobody Gonna be Payin’ Us

Q and Jamon are back in the saddle and ready to discuss all things Michael Jackson and the Jackson family! The fellas kick things off with some discussion around a previously unseen version of the Victory album cover, Michael’s influence across the hip-hop genre, Tito Jackson’s interview around unreleased Michael music and a recent Dee Dee Jackson Foundation and Heal Los Angeles Fundraiser. Q and Jamon then delve into the new Blood on the Dancefloor X Dangerous (The White Panda Mash-up) remix, Paris Jackson’s Melbourne Cup visit, Janet’s State of the World Tour and Out100 Gala appearance and Austin Brown’s new EP Canyon Sessions. To round out the news, the boys update listeners on Katherine Jackson’s position as guardian of Bigi ‘Blanket’ Jackson, Mike Smallcombe and Andy Healy’s book announcements and the Dangerous World Tour (Live in Oslo) leak. The main discussion topic for this episode is all around Q and Jamon’s thoughts on the CBS TV special Michael Jackson’s Halloween.

P.s. We apologise for the audio issues on Jamon’s vocal throughout this episode. He needs a new mic chord!

Episodio 023 – Cuando Pase El Temblor

Después de una larga e involuntaria espera, regresamos más cargados de noticias y experiencias para compartir con ustedes. Pareciera que el Estate se esperó a que nos fuéramos para sacar toda la artillería pesada, con el álbum Scream y el estreno de Thriller 3D en algunas ciudades alrededor del mundo. Te contaremos todo sobre el lanzamiento del nuevo álbum recopilatorio que se anunció solamente un par de semanas antes de salir al mercado y nos tomó a todos por sorpresa, y discutiremos la selección de canciones incluidas en él. También hablaremos sobre el estreno de la versión 3D de Thriller en el Festival de Cine de Venecia, el especial que se transmitirá en CBS “Michael Jackson´s Halloween”, y de las preguntas frecuentes que el Estate decidió responder a los fans.

Este es nuestro primer episodio de regreso tras el terremoto que sacudió a México el 19 de Septiembre, y que nos obligó a entrar en este receso del que regresamos con una gran noticia que escucharán al final del episodio. Por último, pero no menos importante, queremos darles las gracias por seguirnos, por esperarnos, pero sobre todo por haber estado con nosotros durante este difícil tiempo ¡Gracias!

Episode 067 – Joseph Vogel Special

After an extended break from the Michael Jackson fan community, author and Merrimack College professor Dr. Joseph Vogel is back. He appears on this week’s special edition of The MJCast to mark the release of his fully revised book, ‘Earth Song: Michael Jackson and the Art of Compassion‘.  Interviewed by Jamon Bull and Charles Thomson, Vogel gives the most candid interview of his career.

After attracting criticism for his endorsement of fake tracks released on the MJ Estate’s first posthumous album, Vogel left social media several years ago. In this exclusive interview, Vogel tells The MJCast he no longer stands by his old comments and now believes the songs are fake. The Estate assured him it had evidence they were real but, over the years, he came to realise that simply wasn’t true.

Fans who boycott the Estate over the release of those songs are being perfectly reasonable, says Vogel. He hasn’t spoken to the Estate for around two years and hasn’t been approached to appear in Spike Lee’s rumoured Thriller documentary. He is now actively seeking a publisher to reprint his first MJ book – ‘Man in the Music‘ – in part so he can remove his words on the fake tracks and cease to acknowledge them as MJ songs.

Also in this bombshell interview, Vogel discusses how and why he revised his Earth Song book, why he left social media, whether the fans who turned on him were justified and what his next projects will be.

Joe’s revised edition of ‘Earth Song: Michael Jackson and the Art of Compassion’ includes fresh insights based on new evidence and interviews with key MJ collaborators, like Earth Song short film director Nick Brandt.

In addition to writing several books on Michael Jackson, Joe has appeared in the Estate’s documentaries on the Bad and Off The Wall albums and wrote the liner notes for the Estate’s Bad 25 box set.

Episodio 022 – Mesa Redonda Bad 30

El 31 de Agosto de 1987, Michael Jackson publica el álbum “Bad”, la respuesta al monstruosamente exitoso “Thriller” y su última colaboración bajo la batuta de Quincy Jones. La prensa y el público en general tenían ahora una imagen muy diferente del chico que unos años antes los había cautivado con el Moonwalk y que los había hecho alucinar con Thriller. Bad fue la contestataria forma en la que Jackson se defendió de aquellos que le tacharon de no ser suficientemente negro o que no le perdonaron ser exageradamente talentoso. A pesar de las duras críticas, más centradas en su persona que en la música, Bad logró un record de 5 sencillos números 1 en Billboard: I Just Can´t Stop Loving You, Bad, The Way You Make Me Feel, Man In The Mirror y Dirty Diana. Pero más importante aún que las listas, Michael demostró sus dotes como compositor y creativo cada vez más dueño de su obra.

Nadie se imaginaba que Michael Jackson podría sobrevivir al éxito de Thriller, y mucho menos se imaginaban que se podían alcanzar tales alturas de megaestrellato y capacidad artística. Bad es un disco tan bueno, que es realmente muy, muy malo. Acompáñanos junto con nuestros invitados Marisa Ramírez y Uriel MartiVilla en nuestra primer mesa redonda para celebrar el 30 aniversario de Bad, y respondamos ahora mismo ¿quién es malo?
