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 119

Phil's back this week, just in time for the guys to be joined by an extra special guest; comic colourist and soon-to-be superstar artist, Auto Assembly 2012 guest Sam Palmer! Together, they discuss your picks for a new TV show, packed full of your favourite 80s TV stars (and a skiing testicle-shaped being)! They also rummage around the news bin for the choicest cuts of news, before answering a question which brings up some painfully funny memories.

If Horace were to ski and no one was there to watch him, would the game still have sucked? Yes. Yes it would have.

Episode 118

This week, Glenn and Jii go to the seaside, specifically, Cockleshell Bay, where they have a great time building sandcastles and reminiscing about simpler, more innocent times. Then, it's back to Earth with a bump, because the depths of the toy news need to be plumbed (although considering the time of year, there's quite a bit of news about). After all that, it's time to take the train to Question Town, as we've got your questions that need answering!

I think that's about as far as I can go with the travel metaphor. If indeed that's what it is. It might be an allegory. It's not a similie, that's for sure.

My head hurts.

Episode 116

This week, Glenn and Phil are deep in discussion about many subjects, including your top 5 Generation One Autobots and Decepticons, last week's Doctor Who episode, and the voice of Mr Kipling's in the 1980s. Add to that all the news that's fit to talk about, some more talk about who our action series drinking buddies would be, and some ladybird book weirdness, and you've got yourself a show!

Warning: may contain Hasslehoff. Not enough to cause harm, thankfully.
