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 170

Last Saturday saw the Day of the Doctor become a reality, so join Glenn, Phil and Becca as they discuss the main event of the 50th birthday celebrations for Doctor Who, and all of the ramifications and insights into the future that it brought with it. Also, enjoy all of the news this week, including Transformers, Turtles and a good healthy dollop of Robocop.

Back to the Eighties - 8 out of 10 nerdy nostalgic types recommend it!

(NB If you haven't seen Day of the Doctor yet, needless to say this episode is pretty spoilerrific. You have been warned.)

Cybertrax: Fire in the Sky

Join Glenn and Becca as they travel to t'frozen north, and encounter a robot that only really exists in cartoon form, as one of the biggest fudges in history. Also, a robot who makes possibly one of the most pointless sacrifices EVER.

Episode 169

Becca joins the gang this week, as they talk about welding, Agent Coulson, toilet turnstiles and An Adventure in Space and Time.

We also report on all of the news that's worthy to be talked about this week, such as Castle Grayskull mishaps, Turtle scalping, and perhaps the worst Swerve there ever was.

Cybertrax: Divide and Conquer

This week's adventure features not only a trip to Cybertron, not only the one and only appearance of the Rainmakers, NOT ONLY one of the biggest reasons for a HUGE Transformers retcon, but also the first commentary on Cybertrax for Becca! If that's not reason enough to have a listen, then I just don't know what is.

Episode 168

This week we discuss fear - specifically your fear of horror movies or certain scenes from said movies from when you were ickle. Come on, we all know you used to sneak a peak at the horror movies on video or TV - and this is where you finally admit it, and that's the reason you're scared of sharks, alien furballs or angry Jewish ghosts.

We also welcome a special guest on for the second half - but I'm not telling you who that is, suffice to say things get very silly from that point onwards.

Cybertrax: Roll For It

It's the turn of Dom Blanco to sit in the co-host's seat this week, as Glenn takes on the episode that first introduced us to Chip Chase, ally of the Autobots, genius level intellect, and guy who turned Prowl into a First Person Shooter.

Episode 167

Happy, Happy Hallowe'en! Yes, yes, I know it's not Hallowe'en anymore, but we're spotlighting Hallowe'en 3: Season of the Witch anyway. Because it's awesome. No matter *what* they said in the Eighties.

We're also reporting all the news that's cool and relevant this week (including some exciting Transformers news, Turtles rumblings and Star Wars firming up) as well as all of the usual banter.

So, join Glenn, Phil & Sam, and remember, don't forget to put on your mask for the great giveaway - keep watching the flashing pumpkin!

Inside the Eighties Studio #5: Stardub

This week sees the return of ITES, and a very special guest indeed - Stardub, aka Ralph! Yes folks, we finally got to him. So join us please, as we take a voyage inside the mind of a man who thinks that Jason of Star Command is cool, and who owns all of the Acorn Green comics.

MOTU Special

Yes folks, it's time to round off the very loose Masters of the Universe trilogy on Back to the Eighties with a special episode completely dedicated to He-Man, She-Ra, Skeletor and all of the other great characters from Eternia, Etheria and beyond!

Joining me on this retrospective are our good friends Dom Blanco (in his first EVER BTTE appearance), and Chris Vint (in his first BTTE appearance in about two and half years!) Come with us on a journey from the very first baby steps that He-Man took in 1982, all the way through to 200X and remember - if you see Skeletor's face on a bottle, be sure NEVER to drink from it!
