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!
Episode 115

This week's episode sees Glenn and Phil discussing how your own personal montage would go - the music, what would happen, and so on, as well as some interesting tidbits about Swansea City, Hans Zimmer, and Doctor Who.

Add to that mix the usual eclectic seasoning of news, views, and questions about times gone past (especially some stories about very disappointing toys), and you've had your 2 a day! 2 a day of two old codgers rambling on, that is.

Episode 114

In today's very special episode, Glenn and Phil are joined by the awesome and very nice Harry Partridge, creator of Bo-Starr, Starbarians, and The Justin Beiber Show! Harry talks about not only his animation, writing and voice work, but also his love of toys, particularly obscure ones. Somehow, we're not surprised.

We also discuss the classic 80's montage (and a few others that have been 80's inspired), and have a look at the toy news for this week. You can tell that the Road to Christmas is about to get tarmacced - there's very little in the way of news at the moment.

Then again, we're talking to Harry Partridge. Which is more awesome than news anyday.
