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 261 - Saved By the Bell

It's alright, 'cause I'm saved by the be-ee-ell! And so on. Jenny from World of Crap is back with us this week, and she's spotlighting the none-more-nineties teencom that is Saved By the Bell. So expect lots of Kelly looking pretty, Zack lookin preppy, AC looking steroidy, Zack being a sociopath and taping the girls without their knowledge, Jessie being high as a kite on ProPlus, Zack being a psychopath and trying to hypnotise people into loving him, Lisa not doing much and Screech getting arrested for knife crime. Oh, and Belding acting inappropriately with his students.

Much hilarity. Lots of 40 year olds acting like teenagers.

Also, we ask Death to give it a rest. Seriously.

Episode 259 - 80's Comics Cavalcade

It's a throwback episode this time around, as none other than the Jer Bear himself is co-hosting this one! Yep, it's been a while, but Jeremy joins us for this one, along with longtime friend to the podcast Bekki, to talk about what comics and comic book heroes turned our collective heads in the 1980s.

Not only that, but we also discuss this year's Botcon (as Jer and Bekki were both there this year) and also what the Jer Bear's been up to since he was last on the podcast.

You want throwback? You GOT throwback!

(Also, apologies for the sound quality on this one. It would seem that the throwback extends to the quality of mine and Jer's Skype connection.)

Episode 258: Batsy v Supes

It's the greatest gladiator match in history, with the Bat of Gotham taking on the Man of Steel. Who won? Did the movie which finally brought together two of the greatest comic book heroes of all time deserve the critical mauling it received, or did the paying millions who said they liked the movie win out?

Sam, Andrew and Glenn endeavour to find out, debate, and decide where on the spectrum they fall on the most polarizing movie of the year!

Also, where do YOU fall on the movie? Did you like it? Or was it not for you?
