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!

This week is all about the classic Eighties' Schwarzenegger movie (very loosely based on a story by Stephen "Richard Bachman" King) The Running Man!

To delve deep into this awesomeness, we've enlisted the help of Duncan from Stacebob and the Dweebs, so please join us as we look at the game show to end all game shows, and see what last season's contestants are up to!

Jenny from World of Crap and Glyn from This, That and The Other are back this week to talk to us all about those lunchtime kid's programmes that the 80's spawned...those ones that were usually on before the One O'Clock News, and had the BBC's See Saw idents introducing them.

We also talk about Crackerjack, Look and Read, and Threads. It's all connected.

Jenny's also doing a Stardew Valley livestream for charity on the 24th Feb 2019 - More HERE: worldofcrap.co.uk/2019/02/19/stardew-valley-charity-twitch-marathon

It's time for Leigh and Glenn to look at the very last two episodes of Matt Smith's run as the Doctor, and it's two very special stories indeed, the 50th anniversary special The Day of the Doctor, and his regeneration episode The Time of the Doctor!

We're not *too* emotional about it, we promise. 

Honest.

Amy from the Eccentric Earth podcast is with us again, and this time we're talking about Jim Henson's criminally underrated 1982 high fantasy classic, The Dark Crystal!

Amy's going to tell us all why we should definitely revisit this hidden gem of a movie, and also talk about why the fantasy genre is important to her. We also discuss the genre in the Eighties, and beyond (whilst getting some 40k in there too, natch)

Enjoy!
