Ghostbusters 101

Ghostbusters 101

So...we may have already done an episode or two about Ghostbusters but hear us out! In Episode 1 we talked why Ghostbusters was a brilliant film when analyzing all its individual elements -- this time the dive is far, far deeper.

Welcome to Season 1, episode 32 of Digital Dissection: A Nerd Podcast! Today Joe and Mark discuss the often over looked lore that the original 1984 Ghostbusters movie, the 1989 sequel, as well as the 2009 video game expand on.  So login to the Occult Reference net, dust off your Tobin's Spirit Guide, find your edition of "Who's Who and What's What" and follow along with today's episode! It's the perfect companion to brushing up on Ghostbusters knowledge just in time for Ghostbusters: Afterlife.
