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 123

Jii joins us again this week, as Glenn and Phil take a look at the lessons you learned from the 'moral' segments of the cartoons of the 80s, we give you all the news that's worth talking about this week, and mark the end of what for many Brits was their first version of the interwebz; Ceefax.

We also mark the passing of Michael 'Rimfyre' Taylor, who sadly left us this week. RIP Michael.

It's time for another aural adventure into yesteryear, this time to 1982, where Marv Wolfman and some Muppets bring Superman et al to life in this Justice League of America caper, as they take on the mysterious Lunar Invaders!

Episode 122

It's Phil's turn in the spotlight this week, and it's a corker; he's talking about one of the best ever cartoons of the 80s, the Dungeons & Dragons classic, The Dragon's Graveyard!

Also this week, all the news you love, including some intriguing Ghostbusters news, and a (very slight) war of words between Hugo Weaving and everyone's favourite movie director, Michael "Sunset" Bay.*

*This is a lie, obv.

Episode 121

It's the start of NYCC (New York Comic Con for the uninitiated), so Glenn and Phil bring you all the pre-con news for the Big Apple this week - and believe me, there's very exciting stuff afoot, especially if you're a GI Joe of Transformers fan!

Also in this week's episode, we talk about your favourite episodes for the 4 seasons of the Generation One Transformers cartoon, answer of couple of very interesting listener questions, and find out what Glenn did for his birthday this year!

HINT - It involved Cardiff, a Time Lord, and Sheldon Cooper's t-shirt folder.

Episode 120

This week, join Glenn and Phil as they spotlight a classic Generation One Transformers episode set in a land of giants - Child's Play!

Also, there's news of all kinds (including a mini-review of the brand new TMNT series that started last week), and a question of a very Twittery nature.

All this and more awaits you - as long as you steer clear of the dangerous diamonds!
