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 249 - Ch-ch-ch-Chip and Dale!

It's back to 1989 this week, as Sam spotlights one of the best (and best funded) cartoons of the 80s - Chip 'n Dale - Rescue Rangers! Find out how the whole thing came about, from being a Ducktales spinoff, to having our favourite chipmunks added, to how Michael Eisner saved the show!

There's also a good load of rambling about media in general, and the gang's opinions on the breaking news of Steven Moffatt's impending Doctor Who departure!

Episode 248 - Protect and Survive

This week it's all about the fear - fear of everything. We'll be taking a look at PIFs - Public Information Films - those mini horror films that were meant to instruct and help people not brain themselves on anything and everything, or not get fried by electricity susbstations, or be able to cross the road without getting turn over EVERY. SINGLE. TIME.

Join Glenn, Becca and Paula as they go through some of their favourites, and some that truly scarred them for life afterwards. Including the ones starring Dave Prowse.

SPLINK!

Episode 247 - That's Not How the Force Works!

Happy New Year, everyone!

In the great tradition of going back to work, we're easing into things here at BTTE Towers, so join Sam, Paula, Becca and Glenn as they tell us all what they got for Christmas, and then tell everyone what YOU got for Christmas.

As if that wasn't exciting enough, there's the small matter of talking about a certain Space Conflict movie that came out around the end of last year, they would have talked about it sooner, but everyone was losing their minds about spoilers...

...I wish I could remember the title of the movie. Something about the police force waking up, or something.
