Welcome to the second in our series of Tobin’s Audio Guides - a quick primer on the history and importance of the Ghostbusters firehouse. In the episode, we’ll discuss how the production came across the Hook and Ladder No. 8, the storied history of its Los Angeles equivalent, and just what kind of shape both buildings were in after nearly 80 years since their construction. Why is the firehouse such an integral part of the Ghostbusters lore and why has it become so iconic?
This week on the show, we're opening Tobin's Audio Guide for the very first time! Stay tuned for a behind the scenes character exploration on one of the original film's most iconic characters, Mr. Stay Puft himself! From his origins in the story and screenplay, to how he was created by the special effects team at Boss Films, tune in for a 22-minute entry kicking off our Tobin's Audio Guide series!
This week, on an all-new "This Ghostbusting Life" sit down for a sushi lunch with Robin Shelby. She's played a Troll in Willow, Slimer in Ghostbusters II, and most recently was the voice of "Lady Slimer" in the 2016 reimagining of Ghostbusters. But did you know that she also was a character at Universal Studios? And played Oliver on stage? 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!
It's a bit of a light week in Ghostbusters world because of all that other news currently dominating most folks' attention (is it just us, or is Ghostbusters II starting to feel like a documentary?), but that's not going to stop Chris and Troy from chatting Ghostbusters and there's still plenty to talk about including that Bernie Wrightson concept art, the Titan vinyl figures, some more cool Japanese merch, the Ghostbusters of BC doing a little charity fundraising, and yes - even some Extreme Ghostbusters chat. So come take a break from the tension for a bit and spend an hour with the Ghostheads, eh?

First up, the latest news including the release of Ghostbusters VR, the Ghostbusters: Answer the Call Blu-ray and DVD release, and a bit of merch updates. Then, live from The Grove in beautiful Los Angeles, CA, Troy sits with Eric and Robin looking back on the previous year and things to come.

Ghostbusters: Answer the Call is coming to Blu-ray (in a variety of Blu-ray formats) and it's jam-packed with bonus features, so we called in the big guns with Tyler Foster of DVDTalk to break it all down for us. But before the interview, as always a little bit of news including the re-release of Ghostbusters: ATC in theaters, Steve Johnson's new book, and Chris and Troy's revelation that they're about four issues behind on IDW's Ghostbusters International.

Your eyes aren't deceiving you, this is a third Crossrip in one week! For good reason though, as we have Anthony and Claire Bueno, the Director and Producer of the new documentary "Cleanin' Up the Town" on the show to talk about their film. Their documentary "Cleanin' Up the Town: Remembering Ghostbusters" is an in-depth an intricate look behind the scenes of Ghostbusters and Ghostbusters II that, as you'll hear in the interview, has truly been a labor of love for the last eight years. Anthony and Claire have been self-financing and self-producing the documentary during that time but need our help to cross the finish line so that we can all enjoy this special piece of film history. With just 11 days left in their Kickstarter campaign, there's a Ghostbusters movie out there that needs you, head to their site now to donate before it's too late!
