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!

Welcome to the post-SDCC Back to the Eighties!

Joining Glenn this week are Harriett aka Manga Girl, and also a returning hero in our very own Phil!

We'll be poring through the relevant parts of the SDCC reveals for this year, including very exciting Transformers news (especially for Glenn), the new trailers for everything from Justice League to Stranger Things, and also sharing our thoughts on the 13th Doctor, Spider-Man and Rick and Morty!

AND as a bonus, we discuss the upcoming LFCC, as we'll all be there, so feel free to say hello if you see us!

WE HAVE A NEW DOCTOR COMING!

Yes, the 13th Doctor has been named, and she's arriving soon! 

Joining Leigh and Glenn to discuss not only this bombshell, but also the finale of series 10 (and a bit of Spare Parts and Big Finish goodness too) is Matt Clarke, aka Timey2Wimey!

It's time to spotlight a true 80's classic this week, as Matty and Glenn are going to take a ride in a massive golden condor all the way to the Andes, as they search for the Mysterious Cities of Gold!

It's episode 300! You should all be very proud of yourselves for getting this far!

We're not resting on our laurels here at BTTE Towers though, and to this end, we have to unveil our new co-host, none other than Matty Franklyn of the Reuse Your Old Adventure Podcast!

To give Matty the warmest welcome possible, we're spotlighting a Japanese Transformers series from the Eighties that many consider to be among the best - Super-God Masterforce!

What's YOUR favourite Japanese Transformers series? Do you prefer their Headmaster concept (smaller robot becomes larger robot), or is the Western version more to your taste (smaller being merges with larger being in a mind meld situation)? Let us know, and we'll read out your answers next week!
