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).
This week we're opening up the phone lines and playing the huge backlog of voicemails that we have in the archive, plus talking with a special guest: Troy's wife Kelly. See, here's the thing - Kelly isn't a Ghosthead but she has to live with one. So how is she feeling about the new movie? What are her thoughts on the trailers? Does she miss talking to her husband because he podcasts so darn much? Find out as the two share a conversation after the latest news. Singapore's Guinness World Record, trailers and TV spots, magazines and books, lots of stuff going on. Then stay tuned for your listener voicemails including one of the funniest things we've heard in a while from a listener's son!
This week on the Crossrip, we're joined by the minds behind BBQ Films' experience in Brooklyn, New York: Lenny Platt, Gabriel Rhoads, and Lauren Lickus! Plus a contest sponsored by Loot Crate! But in the first hour, catching up on the latest news (because there's a whole lot) - a new single by Elle King for the new Ghostbusters film was released as part of the new soundtrack announcement, Troy and Chris dissect all the news there. Global Ghostbusters Day is coming up on June 8th, the guys run down everything that entails including old and new cast members meeting in one place on the Jimmy Kimmell Live show this coming Wednesday. Chris is SUPER caffeinated and excited to have gotten his first batch of Cryptozoic trading cards, so buckle up because he's going to break it down. The boys talk about that Dan Aykroyd comment and a certain TV spot as well as Tom Zhou's breakdown of the trailer editorial. Lots of merch news including Mattel exclusives and puzzles galore. Stay tuned for news about how you can win a free limited edition Ghostbusters Loot Crate and then in our second hour, hear how a warehouse in Brooklyn was transformed for the ultimate Ghostbusters experience by the team at BBQ Films!
