The 32nd Anniversary of the original Ghostbusters is upon us and there's lots to talk about both classic and new. Join Troy and Chris as they chat Fathom Events, the return of Ecto-Cooler and a discussion on how it still tastes (especially when combined with other mixers), Ghostbusters International #5 from IDW Comics, chatting about that second Ghostbusters (2016) international trailer, the four new leads from the 2016 film showed up on Ellen for an entertaining interview, we'll play you some of the highlights including casting, action figures, and Chris Hemsworth, discussion on the Empire Magazine articles and a few gems hidden within them (including the return of Ghostbusters: Hellbent?), National Tyre's contest to send folks in the UK to New York City, then a rapid-fire merch round-up with Macy's, Diamond Select, Ecto-Mini cheat codes, Cryptozoic, and much more!
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."
