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 237 - Oooooh, nasty.

Welcome, Watchers of Illusion, to the Castle of Confusion, or BTTE Towers as we all know it. It's a bit of a special one this week, as we're joined by an actual, proper DUNGEONEER from one of our favourite TV programmes from the 80's (and indeed, EVER), KNIGHTMARE.

His name his Giles, and he's lovely. He tells us all about his experiences on the programme, traversing the various dungeons of the castle (and by dungeons, we mean a blue screen room in Anglia studios), and what it was like meeting Treguard the Dungeon Master, amongst other great stories!

There's also a smidgin of news to go through this week, and a question from one of our lovely listeners, so join us won't you, and remember, it's only a game...isn't it?

Episode 236 - Fight Club Tropicana

It's all about the smackdown this week, as Paula, Sam and Glenn take your suggestions (and some of their own) as to which 80s icons would beat each other sensless in fantasy battles! And as this was so much fun, this is going to be a regular item, so we'd love some more suggestions from you guys please!

There's also all the news that we can find from our favourite franchises, including some news on Transformers 4, a man who thinks he can get money from Hasbro for "inventing" GI Joe, and of course, more Ghostbusters news!

Also, get well soon Becca! Here's hoping you'll be back next week!

Episode 235 - All Dogs Go To Bluth

It's Sam's turn to spotlight this week, and he's chosen a widely regarded classic in the 1989 Don Buth animated movie, All Dogs Go To Heaven! What will the team think of this movie now they've seen it again after all these years? Will it be the classic they remember it to be, or will it again lose out to The Little Mermaid?

There's also a good amount of news this week from MOTU, Ghostbusters, Transformers and everything else that we like to look at of a Friday evening!

Episode 234 - Hangin' Tough

This week sees the return from Jenny from World of Crap, and this time she'll be looking at the things you did to look like a double hard bastard when you were a kid, things like dying your hair, getting tattoos, and taking on the whole of the school year by yourself. That might have just been me, then.

There's also all of this week's news, and we reminisce about the toys we really wantd but never got, and the toys we kinda wished we hadn't gotten in the first place.
