We’re back to regularly scheduled programming after a couple odd-weeks and there’s TONS to discuss: Ghostbusters World, Men in Black crossovers, it’s a four-fold Crossrip for our return. First up, Troy and Chris have had some time with Ghostbusters World, what have they liked? What needs improvement? What level are they and how does it compare to Greg Miller? Then, IDW Games has announced a new boardgame crossover that pits the Men in Black property with Ghostbusters for the first time (officially). Other news items in discussion: that Ghostbusters II remote controlled trap up for auction, Bryan Lynch’s Ghostbusters III concept, Ghostbusters Dimension’s status at VOID arcade attractions, and Chris hits us all with a half-hour rapid-fire of anything and everything we’ve missed over the past couple weeks!
This week on the show, discussing the Halifax commercial that bends space and time to insert a pitchman into the 1984 film and presenting the entirety of the Wizard World Chicago panel! First up in the news: Ghostbusters Dimension is leaving Madam Tussauds in New York City, Chris and Troy talk about the Halifax commercial which alters the 1984 film to sell contact-less credit cards, merch news including new offerings in card gaming and backpacking, and an update on Rick Moranis' first convention appearance in San Antonio. Then, in the second half of the show, our friends the Circle City Ghostbusters have been kind enough to share audio from Ivan Reitman and Ernie Hudson's panel at Wizard World Chicago. In the panel, they discuss the past, present and future of Ghostbusters and answer several questions from those in the audience.
Welcome back to our regularly scheduled Monday programming! This week on the show: Ghostbusters Day clean-up, news and IDW Ghostbusters Crossing Over #3 discussion! First up, some of the items that we didn't touch upon in last week's Ghostbusters Day celebration show, including Diamond Select Toys announcements and photos, the VOID expanding to 20 more cities, Hollywood Collectables' Egon Spengler statue release, and some news on the San Diego Comic-Con fan event. Then in the second half of the show, join us for setting up our Ghostbusters Daughter podcast book club and find out how you can be involved. After that, some spoiler-filled discussion of IDW Comics' latest release in the Ghostbusters event, Crossing Over issue 3.
This week on the show, we're talking Crossing Over #1, Ghostbusters World trailers, Void locations opening and more! After some chat about the potential merits or issues with using screen-used parts in a proton pack replica, get ready for some spoiler-free chat about Crossing Over #1, Playmobil Real Ghostbusters figure talk, analyzing the most recent Ghostbusters World video, and a cool stop motion Diamond Select trailer hitting the interwebs! No matter what dimension you hail from, you won't want to miss this week!
This week on the show, Troy and Chris talk the exciting conclusion to the Ghostbusters 101 comic series, the history of slime according to the Verge, Ghostbusters Answer the Call on Sky Cinema (and its accompanying special), and the Ghostbusters Resurrection team really showed us up on their Vigo theories.

Join us, won't you?
This week on the show, the boys chat Ghostbusters 101 #4, the VOID opening a digital experience center at the Rec Room in Toronto, collectable coins, Heide Park Resort behind the scenes and more! Wait, did that say collectable coins? I guess so, Pete. How long do you think Troy and Chris will be able to talk about a coin? Ten minutes? Twenty minutes? A whole episode? Tune in to find out!
This week on the show, step into a virtual world as we talk to Jake Zim, the Senior Vice President of Sony Virtual Reality, about the new Ghostbusters VR experience on PS4! But first up, there's a whole lot of news - remembering Bernie Wrightson, discussing first impressions of IDW Comics' Ghostbusters 101, SNL going "live" across North America, Spacehunter is coming to Blu-ray (and why should you care?), and Heide Park Resort has started showing off their upcoming dark ride attraction. After the news at around the hour mark, stick around for Chris and Troy talking about their experience with the Ghostbusters VR on Playstation 4 and a brief discussion with Jake Zim of Sony VR about the new experience, the expansion of The Void Ghostbusters Dimension and a whole lot more!
This week on the show, we answer lots of questions! What Kids Choice Awards did Ghostbusters just win? Where is the first Void Ghostbusters Dimension expansion popping up? When does the PS4 Ghostbusters VR experience release? What did Paul Feig say on the CBC? Who the hell is Keith Lemon? What's the difference between 70mm film and 35mm? What's your name and where are you from? And how much can Dr. Egon Spengler bench press?
This week on the show, it's the calm before the storm. This weekend is the International Toy Fair in New York, plus a whole bunch of news is on the horizon. So Troy and Chris take this opportunity to talk nerdy about Dana Barrett's apartment and how it may have fared after the interdimensional crossrip that occurred there. Are you legal required to tell a potential tenant that a building had a 50-foot marshmallow man climb it and two of its previous occupants were possessed by demonic dogs?
This week on the show, a little something different - Troy is on vacation with his lovely wife, and he was able to coax her into jumping into the VOID Virtual Reality experience at Madame Tussauds NYC called "Ghostbusters Dimension." If you haven't heard about it, it's a fully immersive virtual reality experience that allows you to strap on a proton pack and walk through a virtual Ghostbusters world, interacting with your surroundings, and letting you bust some heads - in a spiritual sense, of course. Listen to Troy and Kelly's thoughts on the VR experience and how much they're creeped out by wax figures, this week on the Crossrip!
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."
