It's our last proper show before Troy and Chris will see a new Ghostbusters movie so it's a jam-packed one. This week, Andrew Shaffer author of "Ghosts From Our Past" and Erik Burnham author of "Tobin's Spirit Guide" and "Ghostbusters International" join us! Up first, catching up on the news including a new animated series called Ghostbusters: Ecto-Force in the works, talking about the full Ghostbusters (2016) soundtrack track listing, Dan Aykroyd stops by Jay Leno's Garage and takes a spin in the new Ectomobile, the new GB cast stops by Graham Norton's Show, and then a "really quick" rundown of merch including Chris' first-hand experience with the new Activision Ghostbusters game. Then stay tuned for our author-centric interviews with Andrew Shaffer, who has "Ghosts From Our Past" coming out tomorrow and Erik Burnham author of "Tobin's Spirit Guide" in stores now and IDW Comics' Ghostbusters International on shelves monthly! (Note: Jackée Harry will not be featured in this episode of 227).
We have a trailer! Well, a trailer FOR the trailer! We've got a special show planned for you to celebrate the Trailer Announcement that also just so happens to be on the date aliens in Paramus, NJ predicted would be the end of the world! Join Troy and Chris for a breakdown of the trailer announcement and perhaps some clues within for the future of what's to come. Then the boys will talk all the merchandise news that's fit to print because this week also is the New York International Toy Fair - Legos, fan clubs, Funko Pop Vinyls, there's a whole slew of good stuff coming that we finally got to see. Then, Cleanin' Up the Town's Kickstarter campaign happened in between recording sessions, and with it came a new trailer that the boys'll chat about. Also, great news out of Chicago as Second City has announced the Harold Ramis Film School opening in September, and there's a familiar name in charge of it. Finally, we'll get to everyone's fantastic (and fun) feedback to the Death and Taxes article discussed last week, including a guest appearance from the guys at Ghostbusters Resurrection. This is a CAN'T MISS episode of the Crossrip, especially considering the world might be coming to an end, join us for the last moments won't you?
