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!

This week sees the return of the Jer Bear himself, Jeremy Sebolt! He's here to talk about a personal 80s passion, those masked crusaders themselves. the mighty Mobile Armoured Strike Kommand!

Yes, we know that "command" isn't spelt like that. It was the 80s.

From Thunderhawk to Switchblade, from Spectrum to Viper, we discuss it all here, and even give some love to the more insane vehicles that came late on in the line!

We even say nice things about the cartoon.

It's the turn of Doctor number 3 to come under the spotlight of Leigh and Glenn, as they look at not only UNIT, Jo, Liz, Sarah Jane, The Master and all the other great foes he came up against, but also the real world reasons why the Third Doctor ended up being an exile on planet Earth, sometime around the 1970s or 80s. Ish.

Don't worry. We're not opening THAT particular can of worms anytime soon.

Making your way in the world today takes everything you've got...so pull up a stool, order a cold beer and listen to this week's Back to the Eighties, in which our special guest, Pete Gaskell from the lovely Smorgasbored podcast, lets us know all about Cheers, the legendary Eighties sitcom, which was not only one of the most popular and critically acclaimed sitcoms of modern times, but also span off one of the most popular and critically acclaimed sitcoms of modern times!

No, not "The Tortellis". The other one.

Duncan joins us again this week - yes, Duncan from Stacebob and the Dweebs! He's come on again to talk about one of his favourite movie franchises - the Lethal Weapon series! That age-old tale of older cop meets unhinged cop, meets violent paramilitary drug dealing organisation. You know, that old chesnut.

So expect thrills, spills, Three Stooges, Leo Getz, evil diplomats and getting screwed at the Drive Thru.

Ok, ok, ok.
