#714 - "299 and a Half" - April 13, 2021
Okay, so this is weird. TECHNICALLY it’s THIS episode that is our 300th. But on this Wednesday, April 14th at 9pm Pacific on our YouTube channel, THAT is our 300th episode? Confused? So are we. But we didn’t want the audio feed to go hungry this week so Chris has put together a little episode looking back at the first 300 episodes to get you ready for the 300th festivities. Give this a listen, then make sure to join us LIVE on April 14th at 9pm for interviews, special guests, and a prize giveaway from our friends at Ghost Corps!
#713 - "What the Hell's an NFT?" - April 5, 2021
This week on the show, Chris explains NFTs to Troy. We swear, it relates back to Ghostbusters (and even officially licensed NFTs related to the property). Stay tuned as Troy starts to understand it, and they discuss the future of collecting as a whole. Will we all be going to digital Detolf shelves in the future? All that plus a few news items including new Fun t-shirts, articles in Pop Insider, and — well, a whole lot of talk about NFTs.
#712 - "Discogs Deep Dive" - March 30, 2021
This week on the show, Ectomobiles are showing up in Apple Maps and we’re diving into the back catalog of Discogs! First up, in the news we remember a few fallen friends in our lives, explore a few Apple Maps locations in Alberta that are snapshots in time of Ghostbusters: Afterlife filming, and a merch item or two. Then in the second half of the show, we’re going through all the rarities, b-sides, and alternative versions that spark to us on a search of Discogs. What are the instrumental versions we didn’t know existed out there? Want to hear parts of a few of them? Stay tuned!
#711 - "Eaglemoss Builders Club Part 14" - March 22, 2021
It's St. Patrick's Day and Troy and Chris have had a rough week, it's no coincidence we're exhausted and working on the left exhaust... unwind with us as this week on the show, we're continuing our Eaglemoss Hero Collector Ecto-1 build with Issue 9, Stage 28! And while we do, we're talking about the Walmart pre-orders, extended cuts of certain movies, and a whole lot more. We know these build episodes aren't for everyone, so make sure to join us next week for a regular format episode and we're working to move these builds toward a livestream model where you can join in and chat with us while we build. Stay tuned!
#710 - "Dic Peeks: Play Them Ragtime Boos" - March 15, 2021
Kenner is re-releasing the Ecto-1, Fearsome Flush and Bug-Eye AND we're diving into our second Dic Peeks commentary on another Real Ghostbusters classic: Play Them Ragtime Boos. It's a jam-packed episode so let's just get into it: up for preorder this Monday, March 15th are three new retro Kenner Real Ghostbusters toys from Hasbro. One of which, the Ecto-1 is sure to be not just a crowd-pleaser, but an extremely welcome surprise to Troy and Chris. Then, in the second half of the show, join us for another Dic Peeks commentary on "Play Them Ragtime Boos" - an episode that remains a nostalgic favorite, but what flaws may we have overlooked over the years?
I can’t wait for you to do the 300th Episode. I’ve been listening to this show for almost two years and I’ve loved because here are people that are as into a franchise as I am.
I think it would be fun for a Zoom with fans for the 300th. People can talk about their collections and how they became fans. Let people feel involved.
I really enjoy listening to the show and appreciate all the hard work put into it.
