This Memorial Day, join us for news, speculation, and more! First up, Sony has laid claim to a July 2020 release date for an "Untitled Animated Movie." Troy and Chris discuss why, or why not, that date would make sense for a new Ghostbusters animated film. The boys also chat a bit about Ghostbusters 101 #3 from IDW Comics, the Licensing Expo and the upcoming Ghostbusters Day, a little Shakespeare update, and some discussion about the amazing pluses and pretty glaring minuses of Diamond Select's first wave of Ghostbusters II figures.
This week on the show, we're getting Shakespearean! That's right, Ghostbusters has been adapted into the Old English of William Shakespeare and Troy and Chris are going to read a small passage for your listening amusement. Also on the show, Stranger Things S2 wrap gifts, Diamond Select Q&A chat, IDW news, and Ghostbusters the Video Game sales!
This week on the show, we're breaking down the announcement that Zuul is real - and it's a fossilized dinosaur! But before the boys dive into that, first some discussion about the 35th Anniversary (don't worry, you still have time to make your party plans), Extreme Ghostbusters and a VICE article chatting about how it got diversity right, and a little bit about those custom NES New Ghostbusters II cartridges that have been making the rounds on the internet. All that plus a great listener letter and voicemail on this week's Crossrip!
This week on the show, video games, comics and more! First up, the boys chat about Stern Pinball's Ghostbusters table, and it's coming to your home... and your phone! How're your Playmobil game scores? We want to hear from you. Also, Ghostbusters 101 #2 is out on shelves now, and it's pretty darn good. Troy and Chris give you their thoughts after their first read. All that and somebody in British Columbia is getting married! (Don't worry, our invite was lost in the mail too).
This week on the show, we're catching up on the last two weeks' worth of news! First up, Troy and Chris chat about Paul Feig's "Director's Series" at the Tribeca Film Festival, a ton of great Ernie Hudson news including an in depth interview he did with Blastr, music chat including the new IMAScore music at Heide Park Resort and a rare glimpse into the life of "Magic" artist Mick Smiley, and finally we're chatting a little print and things to read including an upcoming Ecto-1 Owners Workshop Manual with a familiar author.
In celebration of Rick Moranis' 64th birthday this past week, and his recent appearance watching the Rangers play the Canadiens in the playoffs, Chris has put together a little Rick Moranis appreciation reel for this week's show! (Plus, Troy's on a deadline for a book and is totally MIA, so Chris is stepping in to handle the show single-handed.) Grab a bottle of Elsinore and join us!
Your ocular receptacles are not deceiving you! This week on the show, we're incredibly honored to be joined by none other than Ivan Reitman, the Director and Producer of Ghostbusters himself. And since this is our 100th episode of podcasting, we have a special treat as a bonus: a quick chat with Dan Aykroyd as well! Join us as we talk about the state of comedy, the longevity of Ghostbusters, and the what the future holds on yet another jam-packed edition of the Crossrip!
This week on the show: messages from carrier hawks, Crystal Head Vodka lawsuits and Hugo Awards (oh, my)! First up on the show, we revisit last week's Ghostbusters 101 Cyclotron roundtable for a few follow-up discussion points from Michael Tanaka, keeper of Ghostbusters lore-extraordinaire. Next, Troy and Chris chat about Ghostbusters Answer the Call's Hugo Award nomination and the fierce competition it faces. Finally, Dan Aykroyd emerged victorious from one of the most dramatic court room dramas since some of the best episodes of Law and Order - and Troy will excitedly attempt to recount the tale. All that plus Chris chats about the VFX magazine from the Ghostbusters Resurrection podcasters as promised from last week's show. Pour a Crystal Head-based beverage and join us!
It's back! The Cyclotron returns for a roundtable discussion about the debut issue of Ghostbusters 101 from IDW Comics. Joining us this time is artist extraordinaire John Yurcaba to dissect the issue one panel at a time. But up first, a quick rapid-fire half hour of news including Real Ghostbusters hitting Netflix, Anovos showing off their proton pack at WonderCon, some other IDW release news, and another William Murray Golf shirt that'll most likely be impossible to get. Then, step into the Cyclotron as the roundtable discusses easter eggs, plot points, characters, art, and a whole lot more for the first issue of the latest Ghostbusters crossover!
This week on the show, step into a virtual world as we talk to Jake Zim, the Senior Vice President of Sony Virtual Reality, about the new Ghostbusters VR experience on PS4!

Pour yourself some soy sauce, get those chopsticks ready, and enjoy a meal with us as we talk to Robin Shelby about her life in show biz!
This week on the show, it's the calm before the storm. This weekend is the International Toy Fair in New York, plus a whole bunch of news is on the horizon. So Troy and Chris take this opportunity to talk nerdy about Dana Barrett's apartment and how it may have fared after the interdimensional crossrip that occurred there. Are you legal required to tell a potential tenant that a building had a 50-foot marshmallow man climb it and two of its previous occupants were possessed by demonic dogs?
