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!

Claude's back, and this time it's personal...because she's counting down not only her Top 5 Autobots, but also her Top 5 Decepticons too!

Who will she pick? Which continuities will she pick them from? Will Glenn feign surprise when she inevitably picks Dinobot?

You'll have to listen to find out!

Not quite, but almost! Amy's round from Eccentric Earth again, this time to introduce most of us to a movie we criminally may not have heard about, 1981's Nighthawks!

This thriller not only stars Sylvester Stallone AND Rutger Hauer, but also Billy Dee Williams! It's well worth a watch, but only AFTER you've listened to this week's episode, ok?

It's something a little different this week, as someone who wasn't around in the Eighties is going to talk about Transformers, and specifically, her experiences watching the Beast Era for the very first time!

Everyone make Claude feel everso welcome, because she has a lot to say about her thoughts and feelings about the shows, and especially about her boy Dinobot!

In what I hope will be something that happens again going forward, this latest episode is all about TV theme tunes. Specifically, some of the favourites of our guest this week, Masters of the Universe Chronicles' host and good friend to the show, Chris Vint!

He's going to give us six of his best TV themes, and discuss why he loves them and why they keep rattling around in his head long after he's seen the shows themselves.

If you'd like to take part, let me know!

Andy from the Smorgaspod's back to talk about Transformers: The Movie! One of the formative films from our childhoods (we know this, because we spent it together), why do we love it so much, and why has it stayed at the forefront of our collective memories as fans for 33 years?

Spoiler: Because it's AWESOME, and because we're nerds.

Further Spoiler: Glenn recorded this with a head cold. Apologies for any coughing.
