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!
BTTE Extra - NY Toy Fair 2015 Transformers feat. Grufflock!

Yes folks, it's an extra episode! Joining Glenn is the Lord Protector of The Old Oilhouse, frequent contributor (whether he likes it or not) and friend to the podcast (ditto) Grufflock! 

We'll be talking about the various Transformers reveals at NY Toy Fair this year, and asking if this has been enough to bring Gruffy (as someone who had left Transformer collecting behind) back into the fold of big Transforming robbits?

Episode 214

No spotlight this week guys, it's all about the news! Last week NY Toy Fair 2015 happened, and there was a whole TON of news that's come forth, including exciting Transformers developments, interesting TMNT happenings, cool 80's Funko things, and ABSOLUTELY NO GI JOE NEWS WHATSOEVER.

There was hardly even any Star Wars news, but what there was, we'll tell you about, unlike the GI Joe News OF WHICH THERE WAS NONE.

Episode 213

This week's episode is all about your guilty pleasures from childhood, the shows which you love, but don't always admit to loving. So let Jii, Sam and Glenn take you on a trip down the lesser known memory lane, the one with the path least trodden, as we look at the Jems, the Rainbow Brites and yes, the My Little Ponies!

There's also a whole boatload of Transformers news to be getting on with, and I DO mean a boatload!

Episode 212

No news this week guys, mainly because Jenny from World of Crap's back, and this time, it's serious. Like, Argos and Index catalogue serious. 

But wait, there's more! Not only do Jenny, Sam and Glenn talk about the catalogues, but also 80's party food, things you'd find in a doctor's waiting room, and the TV Times quiz questions!

They also find time to answer some listener questions as well, you lucky people. Well, I say lucky...
