Hosted by Glenn, Sam, Becca, Paula 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 277 - Talkin' Toys

From Speak'n'Spell to 2XL, from Major Morgan to Teddy Ruxpin, Paula's going to take us down an aural memory lane this week with a spotlight on talking toys of the 1980's!

Becka and Glenn come along for the ride, and chip in their favourites - what are YOUR faves?

Next week: it's Morphin' time!

Episode 276 - The Long Dark Teatime of Back to the Eighties

It's Becca's turn to spotlight this week, and she's chosen to look at a Douglas Adams endeavour you may not be familiar with - Dirk Gently's Holistic Detective Agency!

Of course we mention Hitchhiker's and his time on Doctor Who as well, because well, Douglas Adams.

So sit back, relax, have a cup of tea and enjoy the whimsy and Wodehousian dialogue, because next week, Paula spotlights something truly terrifying...
