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!

We're back! After a while away, Leigh and Glenn return to talk about Doctor Who, in it's Classic and Nu-Who forms, from DVDs to Big Finish, from the Target Novelisations to Dr Who Mr Men, it's all here!

This time around, they have a bit of a natter about the latest Christmas special, the new Doctor, and whether or not it's ok to say "arse" on telly at 6pm on Christmas Day...

Andy from the mighty Smorgaspod joins us this week, as we talk not only about the latest episode of the Star Wars saga, The Last Jedi (now that all the dust has settled), but also Glenn's experience at the recent "An Evening with Chevy Chase" - an event either ruined or enhanced by the addition of 80's DJ and Saturday Superstore host, Mike Read! 

Yes, that bloke who did the UKIP calypso.

It's the Back to the Eighties Friday Big Shop, which means that we'll be taking a trip down Memory Lane, and looking at some of the supermarkets in the UK that sadly didn't make it out of the Eighties, or at the very least the Nineties.

Joining Glenn on this meander is none other than Jenny for the World of Crap, so let's grab a trolley, go through the big turnstile and the trolley flaps, and prepare to be disappointed by not being allowed to look down the toy aisle - it's time for some shopping!

Happy 2018 everyone!

In this first show, Glenn's joined by good old Duncan Sparrow from the Podcast in a Half Shell (soon to be renamed) - and this time he's chose to bring forth the 1988 Tim Burton classic spooktacular Beetlejuice!

So be sure NOT to name Him three times (Beetlejuice, not Dunc, obvs) and keep your Handbook for the Recently Deceased with you at all times - this is gonna get weird.
