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!
Episode 187

This episode sees Jii, Glenn, Sam and Phil having a good old natter about what they were up to (and what they were buying) whilst BTTE was off the air. The subjects, as always, are eclectic, ranging from Kamen Rider and Power Rangers, to Godzilla and even My Little Pony. Yeah. It gets THAT weird.

There's also all the news that we can possibly cram into a 3 hour podcast, as well as an announcement about this year's Roll Out Roll Call. So what are you waiting for?

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

When the Music Stops: Gremlins

You'll have to be very careful with the contents of this week's WTMS. DON'T let it get wet, DON'T expose it to sunlight, and on no account NEVER, EVER feed it after midnight, no matter how much it begs.

Yes folks, it's the Rainbow adaptation of Gremlins!

MOGWAI!

Episode 186

This week sees the gang all present and correct! Join them now, as Becca spotlights Tin Tin in general, and the Nelvana cartoon series about his adventures in particular!

There's also news, views, Glenn and Jii disagreeing about Hook, exciting Power Rangers news from Sam, Age of Extinction news aplenty, and Phil is almost broken by an almost surreal new Buck Rogers item...

BTTE Extra with Glenn & Jeremy

Folks, it's time to say hello to an old friend. It's been a while, but Jeremy is back! In what we hope to be a regular monthly feature, he and Glenn are going to be going through the histories of some of our very favourite franchises. and charting their rises, falls, seeing them rise again from the ashes, and assessing where they stand today, and asking the question, "Where do they go from here?"

To start off with, it's the Real American Heroes of GI Joe - YO JOE!

Episode 185

Phil's back, everybody! Yes, he's gone and got himself all married and stuff he has, and is now back to tell the tale!

Meanwhile, Phil, Sam and Glenn check out and spotlight the 1978 TV series of the Amazing Spider-Man, and have a bit of a natter as to why that series didn't work but series like The Incredible Hulk and Wonder Woman did.

The guys also check out all of the news that's fit to talk about (including some very interesting Star Wars news), and answer a few of your questions on Facebook!
