Hosted by Glenn, Sam, Becca, Paula 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!
Jer and Glenn STS Episode 5

After a couple of weeks away (due to Jer having a new arrival at his place), STS is back, and this week, we're talking about an issue that's pretty much affected us all - the rise of the geek!

We also take a look at another Transformers UK story, this time around it's the only time that the cartoon and comic ever really mixed, as we ponder over the mighty Decepticon Dam Busters!

Episode 100

Lawks a Lordy! Back to the Eighties is 100 editions old today! Just think of all that time we've spent together. We could have been doing something constructive, like putting up shelves, or bothering crows with pipe cleaners.

Ah, memories. 

Still, Glenn and Phil have been busy this time around, listening to your messages of adoration and support, spotlighting possibly the most polarising Transformers series ever in Masterforce, and reporting on all of the news happenings in our favourite toylines this week.

All this, AND question answering? Surely, Ambassador, you are spoiling us.

Episode 99

Join Glenn and Phil as they discuss your best and worst bits (and traumatizing memories) of Transformers: The Headmasters, and then marvel as they report on all the news that's fit to talk about this week!

Also: more Star Wars Kinect discussion. Glenn's a little bit smitten with the dancey minigames. So much so, he's been singing 'Hologram Girl' all day. Pity him.

BTTE: Jer and Glenn STS Episode 4

Yes folks, it's that time again, so lock your doors and set your phasers to 'tickle', because Jer and Glenn are here to shoot the shit!

Among this week's topics are Transformers: Prime, Bay's alien Turtles gaffe, 80's toons vs today's toons, and a special surprise for all Star Wars fans!

SPOILER: Star Wars fans might not be happy. In fact they won't be happy. Especially if they have no sense of humour.
