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 143

No Glenn this week, So Phil has the Nostalga Tardis on full speed. With Co-companion Becca and Special guest TimeLord (Matt) we explore (albeit very last minute) the world of M.A.S.K.

Also for your listening pleasure we present what little news we can find

oh, we also chat about the new G I Joe movie *all spoiler free*

so join us on this Easter weekend or you can just lick my chocolate egg!

Episode 142

Phil and Becca are back this week, and together with Glenn, they all set off on a journey to find the Thirteenth Colony of Man, searching through the Galaxy to find the mysterious planet known as Earth...oh, they found it.

There's also news though, mainly in the form of Transformers and GI Joe news, but still, NEWS.

They also have a discussion about cutting and pasting important events from history, and Doctor Who! Aren't you lucky. YOU be the judge!

When the Music Stops: The Saga of Battlestar Galactica

As it the last WTMS for a couple of weeks, we'd thought we'd give you all a treat; the full, 50-minute LP version of 'The Saga of Battlestar Galactica', with original audio and music from the series, AND narrated by Adama himself, Lorne Greene!

By your command!

Episode 141

There's no Phil or Becca this week, but there IS an Andrew Turnbull from the Stardub podcast joining Jii and Glenn this week, as they discuss your (and their) guilty pleasure movies this week (as well as a multitude of other different things - a plethora, if you will).

They also ferret out the latest news (including how the Botcon sets might be improved in future years), as well as answer a question about how and why the Noughties might have sucked.

It's totes amazeballs!

When the Music Stops: Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom

Following on from last week, it's the second in the Indy Trilogy, as we go back in time to 1935, to when Indy takes on a child-stealing, heart-ripping-out cult, in the darkest, and most contentious of the movies!

Episode 140

What ho, chaps! Chocks away, tally ho, righty-dokey and all that, what? It's only Becca's turn this week at the spotlight, don't you know, and it's her first one to boot! She's only gone and bally well picked the 1986 'classic' movie Biggles now, hasn't she? You know, the one about the World War I pilot who has an American time twin in the 1980s? Wizard!

There's also ads from 1982 (the LWT region, where mater is from) and also all the news you'd ever want to shake a stick at, what?

Now, I remember in India, in 1862...or was it Dudley?

When the Music Stips: Raiders of the Lost Ark

It's all the way back to 1936 this week, as we join Indiana Jones in his first adventure (on film, at least) as he avoids Nazis, French archaeologists and angry Jewish ghosts as he searches for the Ark of the Covenant!

Just so you know, this broadcast has been made by top men. Top. Men.

Episode 139

This week's show sees the return of Becca - yes folks, Professor Lampenstein is BACK!

As if that wasn't enough to make you want to listen, Phil spotlights Spider-Man and his Amazing Friends (Iceman and Firestar, as if you didn't know), and the News Team assembles once more to bring you all of the best toy news in town, as well as answering some of your questions put to us through the medium of the interwebz.

How do we answer the questions, you say? Why with SCIENCE, of course!
