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!
A Tribute to Harold Ramis

RIP Harold. Thanks for everything.

Cybertrax: SOS Dinobots

Well hello there, my amateur paleontologists! Welcome to Jurassic Cybertrax, where Glenn and Mikey explore the dark side of Wheeljack's mindset, as he goes all John Hammond on us and creates three of the biggest, baddest and most dangerous Autobots that you ever did see: the Dinobots!

No really, he spared no expense.

Cybertrax: Fire on the Mountain

After a couple of months away, Cybertrax is BACK!

This week, we take a look at what happened to Jetfire, sorry SKYfire, after he was left to rot by the Autobots, sorry, given a heroes' send off and buried with full honours.

TL; DR - he was turned into a minicab. Also, Megatron has "stress issues".

Episode 175

Today's the first day of Gerry Anderson month, and to kick us off, Becca's spotlighting one of the lesser lauded entries in Anderson oeuvre, the 1970 live action sci-fi series UFO!

Also, joining Jii, Becca and Glenn this week is a special guest. A special guest from another podcast...be excited. And afraid. Very afraid.

Stick with us though, because not only do we have all the news that's fit to discuss, we also take on one of Jii's biggest pet peeeves...
