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!
Multiple guests on the show this week as we're joined by Associate Producer and Ghost Corps' Eric Reich, actor Robin Shelby, and Director of Ghostheads Brendan Mertens! 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. After that, stay tuned for Brendan Mertens who talks about the home video release of Ghostheads, the process of making the film and much more!

This week on the Crossrip, we're catching up on news including the DVD/Blu-ray release of Ghostbusters: Answer the Call and more! There's a lot of marketing and merchandising surrounding the home video release and Troy and Chris break down the press appearances and special events that are on the docket including an appearance by Ray Parker Jr. and Paul Feig on the TODAY Show. The LEGO Dimensions expansion pack is out and the boys talk a little about a surprise cameo that has everyone talking, and that leads to a little conversation about the 2009 Ghostbusters: The Video Game. Ernie Hudson is hitting Oklahoma for Halloween. Lots of merch coming out including Ghostbusters International #9, Diamond Select Wave 4 action figures, and a whole lot more. It's a packed episode but we even snuck in a view listener voicemails!
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. Join us this holiday weekend, won't you?
This week on the show, Troy and Chris discuss the article that went 'round the world saying that Ghostbusters is heading for a loss of $70mil and the future of the franchise is in jeopardy... then goes on to say that an animated movie and series are on the way and a Sony rep told them their loss calculation was way off. Huh? Yeah, buckle up - this one's going to take a little bit of discourse. After that, a little news including the DVD/Blu-ray release date for Ghostbusters: Answer the Call, Leslie Jones at the Olympics, a Q&A with Kate McKinnon, and a merch round up (spoiler alert: we're really jealous of everyone in Japan).
This week, two podcasts in one! It's a proper Crossrip and a Cylotron - the first in our series analyzing Ghostbusters: Answer the Call. Joining us in the Cyclotron this week are Paul Gannon (of the CheapShow Podcast) and Page Branson (of the Level 7 Access podcast) to talk about the story and the characters of the new Ghostbusters film. But before that, there's a little bit of news including a very special fundraiser underway to make little Braeden a Ghostbuster from the For the Win Foundation. Plus some merch round up news, a little box office discussion, and a look at Paul Feig's spoiler-heavy discussion with Empire Magazine.
Hold on for a special two-hour episode this week as Troy and Chris bring you the latest news, then have a bit of a point/counterpoint on the State of the Ghostbusters Nation. Up first, the big news about the new Times Square experience brought to you by The Void and Madame Tussauds. Then we pay tribute to the recently passed Stephen Dane, hardware consultant on Ghostbusters who is responsible for so many of the iconic images you know and love to this day. News on the Fathom Events and BBQ Films screenings. Real Ghostbusters DVD re-release news. The latest Ghostbusters (2016) news: Chris Hemsworth talks the original film and Kevin, the four new leads talk the Google Science Fair and Paul Feig talks (a whole lot). Lots and lots of merchandise news from Mattel, Activision, Cryptozoic, LEGO Dimensions, talking about that possible Kevin Ecto-Mini spoiler, and more. Then, in our second hour of the show, Troy and Chris discuss the heated topic at hand: negativity, positivity, trolls, bullies, and a whole lot more. As the noise among the social networks grows louder and louder, it's time that the guys talked out a few of their thoughts on the current "State of the Ghostbusters Nation."
Troy and Chris are both still sick, but nothing's gonna stop us like Larry and Balki, so let's do it! Chris gives a recap on the 2016 Calgary FanExpo and their successful charity run. Ghostbusters (the original) is coming back to theaters in June care of Fathom Events and BBQ Films, will it be in 3D? And could the June 8th screening bring a new trailer for Ghostbusters (2016)? Real Ghostbusters DVD details (sort of) for those of you that don't own them yet. Reshoots and pickups on the new movie took place in Los Angeles last weekend. Merch updates including Troy and Chris' respective experiences in finding the new Mattel toys, or not, Cryptozoic updates, NAS clothing updates, and more...
