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 218

Harriett from Manga Girl Photography joins Paula, Sam and Glenn this week, as the spotlight gets turned on Paula for the very first time, she takes a long hard look at the Valley Girl era, and the cult classic Earth Girls are Easy!

There's also lots of news, from Transformers to Star Wars, from Turtles to Rainbow Brite, yes, Rainbow Brite!

It's like, a great time to be like, a child of the 80s and stuff? Radical.

Episode 217

A new presenter appears! She's super effective!

Yes folks, after last week's clarion call for a full time female presenter, we have a new member of the BTTE family to unveil...Paula!

Please join us in welcoming Paula to the fam, as we talk about why she loves the 80s and being a nerd, and what kind of geeky goodness she loves to talk about!

We also discuss your diary keeping (or lack of it) and get through all the news from Transformers, MOTU, Star Wars, Turtles, and for the first time in a long time, My Little Pony!

Episode 216

Jenny's back on the podcast, so expect chaos! This time she's bringing the might of the Gladiators with her! Yes Gladiators, a nineties show that had the neon beating heart of the 1980s - in fact, it was World of Sport wrestling in all but name.

We also discuss where the Gladiators are now, potential Gladiators for the future, and even the Eurovision Song Contest.

Do you have the power of a Gladiator?

Episode 215

This week, Glenn, Sam and Jii explore the world of Adrian Mole, and resist the urge to write bad teenage poetry, worry about the current Tory government (still) and celebrate the upcoming nuptuals of Prince Charles and Lady Di (and  with good reason too).

They also bring you all up to date with all the MOTU Classics news from NY Toy Fair 2015 (including the very exciting 200X subscription), the latest DVD rumblings from the Gobots, and also tell you about the time when Harrison Ford proved to the world that he was a complete badass.

Also, Hasbro seem to be re-releasing the G1 Dinobots. Eek!
