Jul 23, 2016

Well, Nerd Herd.  The 2016 iteration of Ghostbusters is finally upon us.  Would it be a crowning triumph, a total bag of hot farts, or just an alright sci-fi comedy flick?  The Nerdcore Cabaret gang, and special guest star Geek City's Devin Melnyk headed to the movies to find out, and recorded the show immediately afterward.

And it seems, the reaction is mixed.....DUN DUN DUNNNNN!!!!!

Also, Christa and Amy recount their adventures on CBC Radio One after being asked to come on as Pokemon experts.  Mike defends a difficult position with grace and beardiness.  And Matty V makes it uncomfortable while talking about a WWII themed erotic film project.
