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 257 - Rain, Rain, Go Away

It's back to school for this week's episode, as Paula takes us to the world of NOT being allowed out into the playground, rather having to stay indoors and make do with whatever's lying in the Rainy Day Box. Did you have games in there? Comics? Books? Or did you just cover your hands in Gloy Glue and try to take the whole thing off like a glove? Join Paula, Sam and Glenn and find out today!

Episode 256 - The House of Mouse

It's Sam's turn to spotlight this week, and he's chosen to examine the fortunes of Disney in the 1980s, a time of strife and misfortune and very, very bad business decisions for the House of Mouse, with films like The Fox and the Hound and The Black Cauldron almost causing financial ruin for Disney. How did they turn things around to become the media juggernaught they currently are?

Speaking of things Disney related, we also talk about the current Civil War trailer, as well as all the other geeky things we always end up talking about! So join Sam, Becca, Paula and Glenn for another helping of 1980s nostalgia!
