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 151

Join the guys (plus Nerdsphere Boss Timey2Wimey himself, no less), as they go on a journey of this week's news, views and talking points, all from the 80s! 

Included in this episode; TV themes, football coverage, Doctor Who, Transformers, Star Wars, Whoopi Goldberg, and BBC TV's Grandstand!

If that doesn't intrigue you, I don't know what will...

Episode 149

This week sees the gang (including the newly-inducted Sam to the BTTE ranks) discuss which 80's supervehicle you'd want to be taking command of (HINT - no one picks Automan's sweet ride), as well as talking about the latest series of Doctor Who, the Marvel superhero movies, and the undisclosed Laws of the Playground. 

There's also news, views, and a strange discussion about Kelloggs frozen waffles (and the reflectors that came with them!)

Also: Jii breaks Phil.
