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: Transport to Oblivion

Welcome to Season One of Transformers! After the opening mini-series, G1 kicks off with a bang - the Decepticons discover the Space Bridge, the Autobots get trapped in a cave, and Bumblebee replaces Hound as the kid identification character!

Joining myself on commentary this week, it's the first outing for a BTTE regular listener - Colin, aka duffism1981!

Episode 166

This week sees the return of Mr Jii into the mix, just in time to join Glenn and Phil as they spotlight the Masters of the Universe franchise, from the very beginning in 1976, where one of the dumbest business decisions of all time would lead to one of the most lucrative properties of the 1980s, right up until the present day with the Classics line.

We also report on all the news that's worth knowing, and discuss some memories of our favourite decade, including why we love nostalgia so very much!

Cybertrax: MTMTE Episode 3

Join Mr Chris McFeely and myself for the epic conclusion to the first three parter in the grand Transformers saga! This would mark the end of the beginning for Optimus Prime and co - but it certainly wasn't the beginning of the end.

Join me next week as season 1 proper begins in earnest, with a brand new special guest to co-host!

Episode 165

It's a sad day for us here at BTTE Towers, as we mourn the passing of Filmation legend Lou Scheimer. Lou gave us so many great shows, so it's only fair that we have a bit of a retrospective today. I'm sure we'll also do a more comprehensive tribute somewhere down the line as well.

RIP Lou, and thanks for the memories. You had the power.

We also look at all of the news worth talking about this week, and answer some of your questions.

Episode 164 - NYCC 2013 Day 1

Episode 163

Greetings, nostalgia fans! Glenn here, apologising for last week's abscence. This week we are back however, so join us, Glenn, Phil, Sam and Jii as we talk about our time away from the podcast, our favourite toys from the 1980s (including a good discussion about Masters of the Universe), and all the news that's fit to talk about in the world of toys.

After a break of one week, we will be back, next time (hopefully) with the comic book special, this time about Marvel UK Transformers!
