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 50

Where Glenn, Jeremy and Phil reveal your worst 5 video games of the 80s (Spectrum fans, you may not want to listen to this bit), report on all of the news from our favourite 80s franchises, and answer a question or two.

Also, gratuitous cross-podcast product placement!

Movie Commentary: Superman - The Movie (1978)

Where Glenn is joined by Dave (aka KalelPrime) to take a look at this classic superhero movie (pretty much the first, in fact), to see if we can still believe a man can fly, or whether Superman gets caught up in his cape.

NB: Sadly, I can't find a link to this movie online, I did have a good look. You can pick the movie up cheap or through 'other means' though.
