Hosted by Glenn and Phil, this podcast is a virtual trip back in time to the halcyon days of our childhood - the 1980s (and early 1990s). Every week we explore at least one facet of 80's pop culture, discuss questions from our listeners, and report the news from at least 4 of the main franchises of the 80's that are still around today!
Episode 42

Where Glenn and Andy discuss your top 5 Christmas toys from years gone by, report on all the news that's fit to talk about, and answer your questions.

Warning: contains Noseybonk.

Also, a very Merry Christmas to you all!

This week, Jeremy and Glenn are joined by Andy (aka CobraCommanderTFW), as they spotlight the Mr Men, and go through all of the news that's fit to print! (And obviously talk about.) Also, news of an exciting Youtube venture on the Back to the 80's channel!

Sadly, this episode is a bit late due to technical issues, so apologies about that. We got there in the end though, eh?

Episode 32

Where Jeremy and Glenn find out what your favourite pre-school programmes from the 1980s were, try and scrounge up some news (no mean feat) and answer your questions. If news falls in the forest and no one is there to hear it, does that mean that we still won't know when Transformers: Prime will air?
