Dorking Out Episode 4: Ghostbusters review


Yeah, so, we ain’t afraid of no ghostbros. Smith and I review the new “Ghostbusters” movie. Did it ruined our childhood? You’ll have to listen to find out.


We also talk about last week’s Emmy nominations. Plus, Smith reviews “The Fifty-Year Mission,” which is an oral history of “Star Trek.” Oh, and long-time good buddy Aaron explains Pokemon Go to us.

I'm a writer/podcaster/mother/goober in San Francisco who likes to drink beer, shop, laugh and make other people laugh, watch old movies, feed my unhealthy obsession with pop culture, kick breast cancer's ass, go on adventures with my mighty, mighty good man David and my awesome autistic son, Calvin, wear orange and root for the San Francisco Giants, participate in general jackass-ery, talk about TV, eavesdrop on strangers' conversations, make nerdy “Star Wars” and “Simpsons” references, and post personal things about myself on the web for all to read, which makes me some sort of literary exhibitionist.

  1. OK, I have to admit, I was totally disappointed that you thought the villain was lame. I thought he was so obviously a direct response to the white guys who get upset because they can’t get laid and, as such, go on a killing spree (as at UCSB a couple years ago). I found that AMAZING. Maybe it’s just because I’m not super into the original Ghostbusters (I mean, I like it and all), but I thought this movie was really terrific!

    • Hey there! I got that the villain was supposed to be the same lame white guys that get upset about female ghostbusters. Maybe a different actor would have brought more personality to the part? I just thought he was kinda boring.

      I’m so glad that you liked the movie. I am rooting for this movie so hard! I really do hope they make a sequel, and I’ll go opening night (again) to see it. 🙂 Thank you so much for listening!

  2. See, I don’t think it was just guys who got upset about female Ghostbusters – I thought it was specifically white guys who feel entitled to a certain level of dignity and respect and, it follows (to them, anyway) sex. A subtle distinction, perhaps, but here we are. Anyway, enjoyed the podcast either way! Glad to hear your childhood wasn’t ruined!

Leave a comment, you guys. It's fun!
