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!

With Glenn away, the rest of the BTTE team celebrate the only way they know how, with a quiz!

So join host Sam, along with Becca, Paula and regular co-collaborater Andy as we take the most 80s quiz of all time (until the next one)!

Get your pen and paper ready and lets get quizzical!

Episode 269 - Bustin' Makes Me Feel Good

Things are a bit different this week, with Phil making a triumphant return to BTTE Towers, along with Grufflock, and even Timey's here, all to talk about one of the best cartoons to not only come out of the 80's, but all time. It's relevant too, what with the new Ghostbusters movie on the way!

Of course we're going to be talking about The Real Ghostbusters, the spin-off cartoon from the original 1984 movie. We'll talk not only about the reasons it was called "Real", but also our favourite episodes, the Marvel UK and NOW! comics, and even the toys by Kenner will get a mention.

Warning: also contains Q5.

Episode 268 - Trouble Again

This week sees the gang finally tackle Star Wars: Droids, the continuation of the Star Wars universe when there wasn't likely to BE any more Star Wars. Remember those days? Remember when there were no prequels, no Clone Wars or Rebels, not even any Timothy Zahn novels!

What a bleak universe that was. Ambassador, with all of your Star Wars, you are spoiling us!
