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!
WTMS: Man-Thing - Night of the Laughing Dead

Hey now, kids. This readalong is important now, for it would seem that this guy is now a part of the Marvel movieverse. Which is good, he's a very cool and interesting character. Embrace the fact, don't be scared.

No really, don't feel fear. Because whatever knows fear, burns at the Man-Thing's touch!

Back to the Eighties - if this were prison, would be up for parole about now.

Episode 184

Pray, good listener, do join the team of Glenn, Jii, Becca and Sam as they peruse the good land of Moomin Valley, in search the Moomintrolls within, and seek enlightenment at the feet of Thingumy and Bob (as they attempt to see what's in their secret bag).

There's also news of all kinds, including updates on Transformers, MOTU, Sectaurs, Gobots and EVEN Thunderbirds and Terrahawks, as well as a smattering of answers to your questions!

Episode 182

Anderson 'month' concludes this week with Sam telling us all about the series that Gerry was perhaps best known for, that of 1965's Thunderbirds! Let's see what we can find out about International Rescue (other than the fact that it was the inspiration for the kickass song by Fuzzbox, of course)

There's also all the news that you need to know from all of our favourite franchises, including a look at the full Transformers 4 roster, some interesting MOTU developments, Megan Fox's assurances about April O'Neil, and a discussion about the future of the GI Joe brand - if it even HAS a future.

Also, RIP Warrior. May fiery elephants fly you right on your way to Valhalla. *skronk*

Episode 181

This episode sees Sam, Glenn and Phil go on a trip into the deep dark recesses of their minds, to recant some of the wild and whimsical times they had when they went on school trips, so expect tales of woe from theme parks, historical monuments, museums, and brass rubbing. A crapload of brass rubbing.

Phil and Glenn also bring you the news this week from both Transformers AND Turtles, you lucky people, as well as a LOT of rambling and discussions going off at interesting tangents. Basically, the same mix of informative weirdness you lot have come to expect of us, really.
