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!

It's special guest time again at BTTE Towers, as Duncan from Podcast in a Half Shell and Stacey's Pop Culture Parlour joins us to talk about the Real Ghostbusters, his Best Mate David Warner, and bad movies in general, along with a bit of Wrestlemania chat, and a good old natter about All Things Nerdy.

It's time to listen to another classic readalong story, this time from Ladybird, and Action Force, the International Heroes who stood for GI Joe in Europe for much of the 1980s.

In this adventure, Flint goes back home on his holidays, but soon stumbles upon a Cobra plot to rule the world, this time involving dastardly subliminal messaging...

FULL FORCE!

It's all about the little things on this week's episode, but don't think we're not talking about anything of importance. It's an overload of things which wouldn't necessarily make a whole episode, but things we all loved as kids!

So, expect lunchboxes, pencil cases, stickers, erasers, and all manner of awesome ephemera, so join Glenn, Becka, Paula and Sam as we go down the rabbit hole to everyone's favourite decade, to check out their sticker collections!

What were YOUR favourite bits of 80s ephemera? Let us know, and we'll read out your answers on a future show!

It's 106 miles to Chicago, we got a full tank of gas, half a pack of cigarettes, it's dark... and we're wearing sunglasses.

Hit it.

Episode 286 - Between Two Pillows

It's Becca's turn to spotlight this week, and she's chosen to look at perhaps the ultimate John Hughes road movie: Planes, Trains and Automobiles!

We discuss not only that, but Hughes movies in general, and the influence he had on a whole generation of comedy performers from the Eighties right up to now!
