Ghostbusters 2!! (w/ Gerry D)
Too hot to handle, too cold to hold. You called the Ghostbusters and they're in control!
Chris & Kris have a real treat for you. They've partnered up with Gerry D. from Totally Rad Christmas for a crossover of ghostly proportions. In this episode, Chris & Kris and Gerry take a deep, slightly nitpicky look at the 1989 classic Ghostbusters 2. They talk about the filming locations, glaring geographical errors, deleted scenes, and abandoned storylines. If that's not enough, head over to Totally Rad Christmas after to listen to the companion episode where our hosts chat with Gerry about their memories, feelings, and overall nostalgia of this classic film.
There's some really fun stuff planned for the rest of the year so subscribe now so you don't miss an episode.

Been there before?
I have too and guess what? I should have started listening to this podcast before and my Christmas vacation would have been complete with Chris and Kris as tour guides!
A fresh cheese pizza just for me!
I am loving this podcast! The only time I have ever been to NYC was at Christmastime, so for me, the city is always Christmas. While there I made sure to get “lost in New York.” Thanks for putting together just a great podcast that combines the excitement of Christmas in the City with fun new facts for me to explore. Well done!
Chris and Kris do a great job making informative and fun content!
