    Ghostbusters (1984) ft. Keith Techmeier and Adam Vanderwerff

    Dana and Tom welcome returning guests, Keith Techmeier and Adam Vanderweff, to discuss one of the seminal 1980s action-comedies for its 40th anniversary, Ghostbusters (1984): directed by Ivan Reitman, written by Dan Ackroyd and Harold Ramis, music by Elmer Bernstein, starring Bill Murray, Harold Ramis, Dan Ackroyd, Sigourney Weaver, and Rick Moranis.
    Plot Summary: "Ghostbusters," directed by Ivan Reitman, is a spirited blend of comedy, supernatural elements, and special effects that coalesces into an exuberant cinematic experience. The film chronicles the journey of three parapsychologists—Peter Venkman (Bill Murray), Ray Stantz (Dan Aykroyd), and Egon Spengler (Harold Ramis)—who, after being expelled from their university, establish a ghost-catching business in New York City. Their operation, branded as "Ghostbusters," quickly gains notoriety as they confront increasingly malevolent spectral entities, culminating in a climactic battle against the ancient Sumerian deity, Gozer.
    "Ghostbusters" is a testament to the power of well-crafted comedy and imaginative storytelling. It transcends its genre conventions, offering an escapist adventure that is both thrilling and delightfully absurd.

Quality Podcast

Thorough coverage and interpretation of each featured film. Personal reflection and views make it unique, and it’s fun when the hosts differ and have a friendly banter. My favorite part is when the hosts explain their connection to the movie—it then encourages the listeners to do the same.
