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 211

This week sees the nostalgia TARDIS (with full crew of Glenn, Phil, Sam and Jii) land in the peaceful serenity of the Evergreen Forest. That is, until Bert Raccoon wakes up. The merry hell breaks out. That must mean the this week's spotlight regards the brilliant Canadian 80's cartoon, The Raccoons!

There's also news of a Mattel kind, with new PR management possibly already making it's prescence felt, and new heads for your Skeletor figure, as well as all the Turtles, Thundercats (including some weird ideas for the original series) and Star Wars news!

Oh, and if you ever wondered if there were any series that have let the guys down when they went back to watch them, well, here's the place to be!

When the Music Stops: The A-Team - Follow That Chicken

In this week's readalong adventure, it's up to everyone's favourite soldiers of fortune to clear the name of a young man who has been framed for a crime he didn't commit...so basically, business as usual, really.

Just as an aside, the "Rainbow" calling card at the start of the audio may whisk you back to being 5 years old again in less than a nanosecond. You have been warned.

Episode 210

This week's episode sees Glenn and Sam looking at YOUR experiences of Masters of the Universe through the ages, from the first toys in 1982, to the Filmation and New Adventures era, and even the 200X series, to today! It's a long and winding road, that may be leading to a new movie? Possibly? We'll have to see.

There's also lots of news of a Transformery nature, as well as an interesting question posed on our brand new forum! Yes folks, we have officially moved premises, and BTTE Towers is no longer located at the Nerdsphere. We'd like to thank the Nerdsphere for being our home for the best part of 5 years, and obviously thank Timey and Grufflock for helping set up our new home, which can be found at backtotheeighties.freeforums.net!

Please do join us there on the forum, and post as many questions and homeworks as you can! It's all very much appreciated.

Episode 209

This week sees the return of Harriett Greene, aka Mangagirl232 to BTTE Towers, as she joins Glenn, Phil and Jii in sitting down and reminiscing about the wonder and the glory that is Masters of the Universe. So pull up a pew, and join us as we get all misty eyed about He-Man and the gang, and also speculate on the future of one of our favourite franchises.

There's also news! Not much news as it's just after Christmas, and the news hounds all seem to be on a diet. But news, nonetheless, of Masters, Turtles and even a bit of interesting Spider-Man news. Or should I say...Supaidaman news?

Episode 208

Well, hello 2015! Yes folks, this is the year when Hoverboards and flying cars finally become possible! When Mr Fusion first makes an appearance, and self tying Nikes come about...or maybe not, we'll see. By the end of the year, certainly. We hope.

In the meantime, Phil and Glenn are going to talk about what they got for Christmas, and we're going to read out what you lovely people got as well. As far as we can tell, it's been a bumper year!

There's also an armful of Transformers news, a smidgin of Turtles, a dash of Ghostbusters, and lots of discussion about all manner of things. You know, the usual.

Happy 2015, everyone. It's gonna be a big 'un.
