This week on the show, remembering a fallen fellow fan, what’s the status of Ecto Force and a drool-worthy mancave. First up, now that a few logo explorations for Ecto Force have appeared online, what does that mean for the current status of Ecto Force? Then, Ernie Hudson talks about Stan Lee’s influence on his life, Ecto-Con 2020 is hitting Scotland, and while you’re there you should hit up a GB Fans user’s mancave for a round of Ghostbusters The Video Game. All that plus, your voicemails, Instagram messages and Michael Tanaka calls in to talk Crossing Over’s conclusion (*note: Michael Tanaka has not called in).
This week on the show, a whole lot of Ghostbusters II and Ghostbusters The Video Game discussion! First up - news! Troy and Chris chat about Ghostbusters: The Video Game on the 9th anniversary of the game's release, curious photos on producer Brian Volk-Weiss' Instagram of iconic 80's filming locations including Hook and Ladder No. 8, Jeff Shreck's lucky find of a rare Ghostbusters II charcoal (yes, charcoal) uniform, and discussion about Run DMC's Ghostbusters theme song - why was the band so embarrassed by the song? All that, plus a small tribute to Matt "Guitar" Murphy on this week's Crossrip podcast!
This week on the show, Guinness World Records are broken, Jan Vogler engages on Twitter and is the Ghostbusters music video canon? First up, the latest in news including a follow-up on last week's conversation about the 800 number at the time of the original film's release, Rick Moranis joining the SCTV reunion in Toronto, a group of fans breaking world records at a marathon in London, Forbes magazine talking about Real Ghostbusters Playmobil toys, Terminal Reality back in the news after shutting down back in 2013, and more. Then, in the second half of the show, we discuss a topic presented to us: given that the Ghostbusters theme song appears in Ghostbusters II, does that mean the music video from 1984 is canon? Stay tuned!
This week on the show, we're getting Shakespearean!

First up, Troy and Chris chat their usual news discussion including some chat about LEGO Dimensions and the under the radar announcement that a Ghostbusters (2016) tie-in console video game is coming from Activision. Also Hook and Ladder No. 8 in New York City is closing up shop for the next three years as it undergoes huge interior and exterior renovations and the boys have all the news that's fit to print on what's changing. The UK had a Toy Fair last week and Rocket Licensing showed off their first wave of tie-in products and boy, the sheer volume is a doozy! Entertainment Tonight interviewed Paul Feig on the red carpet at the Golden Globes and a seemingly trivial comment about test screenings has the internet in a frenzy, find out why.

Page by page, panel by panel, listen to the gang discuss this launch issue of an all-new Ghostbusters on-going comic volume and look for future episodes of the Cyclotron to feature familiar faces talking about very incredibly cool things!
Troy and Chris needed a little help. Superstar guitarist Phil-X sent out a photo to the masses regarding his recent purchase for Ghostbusters (2016) and it all read a little bit like Greek to them, so they called in the big guns: journalist Dan Amrich joins the Crossrip for this episode to talk video games (Ghostbusters: The Video Game, Puzzle Fighter and more) as well as give his professional analysis of Phil-X's highly-elaborate Instagram message to the fans that may or may not debunk the Crossrip theory that a new Ghostbusters theme song may have already been recorded.
