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 207

Merry Christmas! Yes folks, it's that time of year again, where the Nostalgia TARDIS is done up with tinsel, turkey and all the trimmings! Join Glenn, Jii and Sam as they traverse the tricky road between the good presents you've all had through the years, and the presents which...well, let's just say people needn't have bothered gifting in the first place.

There's also a bumper Christmas box full of news, from not only Masters, but Transformers, a smidgin of Star Wars, and even news from StarCom this week! Yes, ambassador, you truly are spoiling us.

From all of us at BTTE, a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to all of our listeners. We'll be back after Christmas to entertain and annoy you!

Episode 206

It's our Christmas Show Eve this week, as Sam, Glenn and Jenny from World of Crap take a look at not only the best and worst Christmas gifts that you've ever received, but also the downright confusing ones as well.

There's also a glut of updates on the podcast in general, including exciting news about Cybertrax (yes, it's coming back), and all the news that you would want from a podcast that's not reported any news for a little while.

Next week: IT'S CHRIIIIIIISTMAAAAAAAAAS!

TBT: An Interview with Flint Dille

How's about this for a throwback, folks? All the way from 2010, here's Jeremy and myself (back in the days when I was just a humble co-host!) interviewing the man, the myth, the complete and utter legend that is Flint Dille, writer of GI Joe, Transformers: The Movie, architect for season 3 of Transformers G1, writer of many IDW Transformers comics and game designer of countless games (also, I'm pretty sure one of the voices at the start of Dragon Strike!)

Enjoy!

Episode 205

Cosplaying legend and podcaster Harriet Greene joins Sam, Phil and Glenn this week as we have a bit of a catchup episode - it's been a while since the guys have been together as a unit, so we take a look at the Avengers and Star Wars trailers, discuss the latest developments in the Marvel and DC movieverses, and also have a good old natter about cosplaying, dressing up, and generally having a good old time at conventions!

Episode 204

Jii, Sam and Glenn are joined by Annie and Eddie Palitoy this week, as they discuss not only some of the cartoons that perhaps we're not as nostalgic about as we should be, but they also take a trip down an edible memory lane as they take a look at food from the 80s that we should all be remembering fondly! 

And yes, that includes He-Man jellies.

When the Music Stops: Decepticons at the Pole

This week sees the return of the Transformers to WTMS, and in particular, to a time when Hot Rod and Cyclonus led the Autobots and Decepticons, on Nebulos, at least. Also, many centuries have passed. So Spike = dead. On the plus side, so is Daniel. And Scorponok isn't a sentient being. The Ladybird continuity is weiiiiiiiird.

Episode 203

Jenny from World of Crap is back with us tonight, and she invites Glenn, Sam and Jii to play along with her as she takes on the full might of Bowen in Fantasy Bullseye! He has a degree in maths, you know.

There's also all the news that's worth reporting too, including some MAJOR developments in the world of Star Wars. Super. Smashing. Great.

Episode 202

Back to the Eighties welcomes a very special guest this week, as AJ Locascio, voice of none other than Marty McFly in the Telltale Back to the Future games drops by! Yes folks, one of the few people to play one of our favourite characters is in the house! AJ talks about his role as Marty in the games, how he came to be interested in films to begin with, and even his love of nostalgia (and BTTF, Indiana Jones, Ninja Turtles...the list goes on...) We'd all like to thank AJ for his time and hope that he'd like to come on the show again in the future!

We also have your homework about things you'd like to see INNNNN SPAAAAAAAAAAACE, and also have a good old natter about wrestling. So join us please, as we go Back...to the Eighties.

When the Music Stops: Skeletor's Ice Attack

It's all the way back to Earth year 1984 this week, and another visit to Eternia, to check in on everyone's favourite living skeleton and his struggle against He-Man. It's not going so well, to be honest. So much so, that Skeletor's had to resort to using Mer Man to attack Prince Adam and the Royal Family on their summer holidays. Maybe Skeletor should have used Nicholas Witchell instead. I bet King Randor HATES Nicholas Witchell.
