This week on the show, some interesting Fan Fest developments and catching up with IDW Comics’ 35th Anniversary event! First up, have you seen those 7-Eleven cups and Slurpee flavors in Canada? They look pretty dope. And let’s talk about some new crew who have boarded Jason Reitman’s 2020 Ghostbusters film, including a costume designer. With that out of the way, just what the hell is going on with Ghostbusters Fan Fest? Troy and Chris try to answer that question exploring the new announcements of upcoming guests (both related to and NOT related to Ghostbusters). In the last segment of the show, the boys talk about IDW’s mini-series of one-shots celebrating Real Ghostbusters, Extreme Ghostbusters and Ghostbusters: Answer the Call.

This week on the show, Ghostbusters (2020) updates, merch news, and a lengthy chat about a tiny detail neither Chris or Troy has ever noticed in the original Ghostbusters! First up, Stranger Things S3 has a new trailer, how does it relate to Ghostbusters, and how excited are the boys? Extreme Ghostbusters is on CTV in the Great White North, and it’s in shiny high-definition. Our Ontario friends are raising money for a good cause and raffling off to win a proton pack. And some merch news. Then, in our 2020 rumor round up, what does JK Simmons know (and how could he be involved) according to Entertainment Tonight? And finally, that detail which an amazing Twitter account pointed out to us - and what does it mean not just for the production schedule, but for the attention to detail the set dec for the original Ghostbusters paid?

One of the most prolific voice actors of all-time, Maurice LaMarche joins the Crossrip this week! Chris caught up with the voice of Dr. Egon Spengler from The Real Ghostbusters and Extreme Ghostbusters (and, as it turns out, a surprising other voice revealed in the show) at Fan Expo Vancouver. LaMarche talks about his early years in the entertainment industry, being a Ghostbuster, and a whole lot more. In addition, we've added some outtakes and archival audio, making this a holiday mix tape of sorts, all about the voice of Egon, stunt burper, master impressionist, and the best Orsen Welles since Orsen Welles.

This week on the show, we're recapping DragonCon and PKE Surge 2017, talking about Extreme Ghostbusters on its 20th Anniversary, and more! First up, remembering Extreme Ghostbusters - how has it already been that long? And why hasn't it gotten a proper home video release? Then the numbers are in and PKE Surge at DragonCon was a huge success! Want to talk t-shirts? 80's Tees has a whole bunch of new ones PLUS that long-teased Crossrip shirt is closer than you may think. There's a lot going on in the world right now, hurricanes, earthquakes, fires... we hope we can take your mind off it all for an hour.

#318 - "Zuul: Destroyer of Shins" - May 15, 2017

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!

#246 - "Drippings Vith Goo" - November 14, 2016

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, a quick update on "King of the Ghostbusters" Peter Mosen, Troy and Chris dance around some GB16 casting spoilers (but don't spoil them), Theodore Shapiro might be scoring Feig's new film (and what does that mean for Henry Jackman? Or Hugh Jackman for that matter?), Yahoo has a great interview with Paul Feig on spoilers, and NYCC promises Diamond Select Reveals and a scavenger hunt for Ghostbusters: The Ultimate Visual History. After the news, stick around for discussion on Extreme Ghostbusters, where were Chris and Troy when it first aired? How did the internet play into its release?
