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!
BTTE 156

Glenn is away, so we aren't doing a show.....nah....PSYKE!!!

This week we relive some of your childhood summer memories. Kinda brings a tear to your eye....IF YOURE SOFT!

Also we run over some news from SDCC, not all of it. Can't give you too much of a good thing!!!

Remember, Glenn's away....so be bored....but it's still better than Eastenders!

WTMS: Transformers - The Movie

This week, it's the turn of what I'm guessing was some people's first experience of still the best Transformers movie - the animated 1986 spectacular that saw the debuts of Hot Rod, Kup, Blurr, and of course the most awesome Autobot of them all - Ultra Magnus!

Spoiler - Optimus Prime dies in this one. Just a warning for those of a nervous disposition there.

Episode 155

The full gang's back this week (for the last time in a little while), and the guys discuss many, many things, including the weather, sport (Andy Murray winning a tennis, for example), and the state of broadband connectivity vs. dialup.

They also find out what YOU used to be in the playground (along with who you may have injured), as well as all the news that's worth knowing in the wide, geeky world - and considering it was Botcon a couple of weeks ago, that's quite a lot of stuff to begin with.

We also find out what the guys used to do on their summer holidays - long story short, everyone except Glenn did interesting stuff. Glenn watched cartoons and was grumpy. Plus ça change, plus c'est la même chose.

WTMS: Super Powers - Battle at the Earth's Core

This week sees the Super Powers of the DC Universe take on the mighty Darkseid and his forces, as they battle, quite literally, at the very core of the Earth!

Who will win? Who will lose? Will they ever release this collection of figures again (because they seem to have been quite cool)?
