Hosted by Glenn and his very special guests, 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've reached the Eleventh Doctor, and it's a difficult time for Leigh and Glenn as now they have to pick their favourite episodes from arguably their favourite Doctor of the Modern Era.

Trust me, you lot don't know how hard this was!

Next time, we'll be looking at the two celebratory episodes of Eleven's run, just in time for the Festive Season!

Phil joins Glenn this week to remember Stan Lee, the man who co-created Spider-Man and a host of other Marvel heroes and characters, and was basically responsible for a good portion of not only modern pop culture, but let's face it, most of your childhood as well.

Thanks for everything, Stan. Excelsior!

The team is now three! Amy and Glenn are now joined also by David Wallace, and the first major evil they attack as the Power of Three is 1997's Batman and Robin, the movie that effectively killed of DC Comics movies until Batman Begins came along in 2005.

But is it's reputation earned? Or is Joel Schumacher unfairly maligned and misunderstood?

Spoiler: ...ish.

Christmas is well on the way, and it's that time of year again where we all like to get in front of the TV, snuggle in, and watch the TV specials that make us feel festive.

So joining Glenn this week are Jenny from World of Crap and Glyn from This, That & The Other to look at just a few of them! Mmmmm, Christmassy.

We're halfway through Series 11 of Doctor Who, so this week's episode sees Glenn and Leigh assessing how it's going, and how we think Chibnall's doing as a showrunner. 

Spoiler: we try to be fair, but blimey Chibbers, you don't half make it difficult.

We also talk about the news coming out of Big Finish, especially the exciting news about the return of the Brig!

Jenny and Glyn are back this week, joining Glenn to talk again about all of the nice things that happened in the Eighties, and a lot more besides. Including a follow up on the Ragdolly Anna situation, which leads to an unintentionally terrifying story reading.

It's not even Hallowe'en anymore.
