This week on the show, we're catching up on the last two weeks' worth of news! First up, Troy and Chris chat about Paul Feig's "Director's Series" at the Tribeca Film Festival, a ton of great Ernie Hudson news including an in depth interview he did with Blastr, music chat including the new IMAScore music at Heide Park Resort and a rare glimpse into the life of "Magic" artist Mick Smiley, and finally we're chatting a little print and things to read including an upcoming Ecto-1 Owners Workshop Manual with a familiar author.
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."
