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!
Mighty Marvel Special Part 2 - The Phil Years

As if we'd do a Marvel special without having our Iceman adoring Captain America fanboy on the show!

Yes folks, Glenn sits down with Phil to talk about his own Marvel experiences, from Spider-Man and his Amazing Friends, right up until the latest Avengers film.

And a special no-prize to anyone who can guess Phil's favourite Marvel character!

Excelsior, and such.

Marvel Comic Book Special

It's here! To celebrate the release of Avengers: Age of Ultron in the UK, we've assembled some of our mates from round the interwebz (namely Glenn, Sam, Paula, Andy and Becca!) to sit around a big ol' table and natter about our Marvel experiences, from our first childhood memories, to the present day!

So it's time to Make Mine Marvel! Excelsior, True Believers!

Episode 221

It's special guest time again at BTTE Towers, as Aisha Anime joins Sam, Paula, Jii and Glenn, as they take a look at an animated movie that probably traumatised more than one of us of a certain age; the bunny bloodfest that is Watership Down!

There's also news! News of a GI Joe type! After nearly about 6 months! It WAS JoeCon last weekend, after all.

But wait, there's more!

There's been trailers this week, of a Star Wars AND Batman vs Superman nature. Not only that, but there's some MOTU news, MLP news and Lego news that just about blows Glenn's fragile mind.

Join us next week, as we start a two part comic book special, with the return of an old friend...

Episode 220

The band's back together this week, as Paula, Sam, Jii and Glenn join forces and take on your homework answers; so what movies did YOU like as a wee'un that no one else seemed to, or had even heard of? We must know!

We also have all the news that's fit to look at, including a Star Wars drone, and My Little Pony McDonalds toys, which surprise Glenn no end. Also, Wagon Wheels. They're smaller than they used to be. FACT.
