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!
CyberTrax: MTMTE Episode 1

Ok folks, here it is: the very first episode of my own personal challenge to dvd commentorize (not a real word) EVERY SINGLE EPISODE of G1 animated goodness, INCLUDING all of the Japanese original material! 

Episode one is of coure the first part of the 3-story miniseries that has come to be known "More Than Meets the Eye", and joining me for the next three weeks is a very familiar voice to Transformers DVD commentaries, Mr Chris McFeely himself!

So sit back, relax, and listen to the first of a very, very long series of commentaries, with a real Transformers expert, and that bloke off Back to the Eighties.

If YOU would like to be a part of this, then don't delay! Get in touch with me, today!

Episode 162

This week, join Glenn Phil and Sam as they discuss YOUR homework answers, and discover what you think are the best comedies and comedy films of the 80s! It's quite the eclectic mix, let me tell you.

We also report on all of the news around that's worth reporting on, and get completely derailed by talk of sportball, and sportball related issues!

Inside the Eighties Studio #4: Grufflock

Yes folks, it's that time of week where I kidnap someone in the nostalgia TARDIS, and whisk them back to their childhoods, to see what makes them tick, and what their most favourite memories of everyone's favourite decade were.

This week, it's Old Oilhouse impresario and man I homage quite often, Grufflock!

Strap yourselves in. It's gonna be a long one.

WTMS - The Secret of the Sword

Yes folks, here it is - the full 36 minute readalong version of the ultimate He-Man/She-Ra experience! 

Listen as Prince Adam is sent to Etheria by the Sorceress, to pick up a very special sword - but wait! Not everything is as it seems on this strange world, as He-Man is enlisted by rebels to fight against the Evil Horde and it's monstrous leader, HORDAK! Not only that, but He-Man discovers that someone very close to him indeed is hiding in plain sight on Etheria, completely unaware of who she is...

Episode 161

No homework this week, we're letting it run another week you lucky people, so get your answers in quick smart!

Instead, the boys talk about their favourite live action TV shows of the Eighties (spoiler: there's a lot of games shows that they loved), as well as all of the good and great things that happened this week - you'll definitely want to hear Sam's AMAZING news!

There's also all of the news that's worth listening to, including some great news about Masterpiece G2 Sideswipe, interesting developments concerning the new Star Wars movies, and Power Lords becoming more and more essential with every second that passes!

Back to the Eighties - it's not your father's 80's podcast!

WTMS - Transformers: Laserbeak's Fury

This week sees a tale from the Transformers, and from the spotlight hogging little crittertape himself - Laserbeak!

When Laserbeak gets himself trapped in cassette form while on a routine mission, hi-jinks ensue. Add to that the promise of a non-electrical mechanical device and a village dance, and well, you either have yourselves an exciting Transformers adventure, or the weirdest episode of Frasier EVER.

Episode 160

Welcome one and all, to the 160th episode of Back to the Eighties, where Glenn, Phil and Sam all seem to have bought the same toy this week, and are desperate to wax lyrical about it's awesomess. Whatever could it be?

Sam also spotlights an amazing comedy film from 1983, starring Dan Aykroyd and Eddie Murphy - Trading Places!

Also, we take a look at all of the news doing the rounds this week including some exciting Turtles news, some great news about a new Star Wars comic coming your way, and all the Transformers and GI Joe news you could shake a stick at, including a Roll Out Roll Call update (tickets now available!)

LOL.
