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 227

It's been a little while, but Jenny from World of Crap is back in the house, and this time it's all about school. As in, sports days, fayres, nativities, hymns, and the dreaded rainy day box! Also, the Dance Settee.

There's also Botcon and Tokyo Toy Show news to catch up on, so please join us for what we hope to be an educational, informative show, and not just some old tut about nostalgia, and stories about how Jenny wee'd onto her mister's socks.

Honest.

Episode 226

Здравствуйте и добро пожаловать в обратно в восьмидесятых!

This week has a definite Soviet flavour to it, as Becca spotlights the Russian classic videogame, Tetris! Sam, Andy and Glenn all have to fall in line, just like the blocks, and do Becca's bidding, as she regales us all with not only the story of how the original game came about, but also how it ended up in the hands of Nintendo!

There's also news! Not only some disturbing MLP news, but also stuff from Star Wars, Transformers (including more exciting videogame news) Turtles and also Ghostbusters!

Exciting stuff. So come on down to Back to the Eighties, because in Soviet Russia, podcast listens to you!

This week, it's time to sit down straight and put fingers on lips, because class is in session, and Arnie's the teacher, yes folks, it time to spotlight a classic family movie from 1990, Kindergarten Cop!

Join Paula, Jii, Becca, Andy and Glenn as they take a look at Arnie's breakout comedy role, and see how different that film could really have been, as well as enjoy some of the big guy's more humourous quotes over the years!
