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!

Uncle Dunkle's back! Yes, Duncan from Podcast In A Half Shell joins us again this week, and brings with him a VERY early Christmas present, as we spotlight possibly the Greatest Christmas Movie Ever - Die Hard!

Yippee-Kai-Ay, motherlickers.

It's a blast from the past this week, as co-founder of Back to the Eighties, Jeremy joins us to check on how the podcast is doing - so quick, look busy! The Boss is here!

We'll also be doing some reminiscing, this time about GI Joe, Cobra, the state of the franchise, and asking why Hasbro doesn't seem to care less about one of it's heritage properties right now.

Leigh and Glenn reconvene to have a bit of a chat about the second Doctor this week - a Doctor borne out of necessity, but also a Doctor that literally rewrote the rules and everything we thought we knew about the character!

Claire Vaughan from Chapter Arts joins us this week to talk about a movie that's very close to both of our geeky hearts, a film maybe not considered good at the time, but has certainly become a massive cult classic now, and worthy of anyone's nerdy nostalgia - 1980's Flash Gordon!

We have the awesomely awesome Chris Vint with us this week, to chat about a subject close to both our hearts (especially as Chris used to podcast about this very subject on the Masters of the Universe Chronicles) - Masters of the Universe, along with She-Ra and the Great Rebellion!

Nyahhhh.
