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!

Amy from Eccentric Earth is back, and she's wanting to talk about John Carpenter's 1987 love letter to all things Nigel Kneale, Prince of Darkness!

We not only talk about this cracking movie, but all things pertaining to Kneale and British sci-fi in general, along with Glenn possibly falling down a massive rabbit hole. It's all connected, people.

It's all about the malevolent pepperpots in this episode, as we take a look at perhaps the Doctor's most enduring enemy (certainly the most popular) - the Daleks!

Matt aka the Artist Formerly Known As TimeLord is back with us, and this visit he wants to talk about one of the most important UK TV shows of the Eighties, if you're a Transformers fan, anyways. It's the show that introduced many of us to the G1 cartoon, the Timmy Mallett fronted show from our school holidays - WACaday!

Because we're nice, we also decided to throw in some TV-am and Roland Rat stuff in there too, including that time that the UK press tried to expose something a little bit kinky about Roland himself.

Duncan from Stacebob and the Dweebs joins us again, and this time he's here to spotlight the cult classic Weird Al Yankovic movie from 1989, UHF!

We all know him for his various parodies but how many of you actually knew he'd done a movie? Well, now you know. And you ALL should what knowing is.

Join Glenn and Dave as they take a look at a movie that was back in cinemas for a brief run this spring, a superhero movie that changed the game and made people start to take the genre a little more seriously (until the studios decided that didn't sell enough toys).

I give you, Tim Burton's 1989 version of Batman.

No, it's not a Rogue Traders style episode about Andy's favourite swindles (although Swindle might be on the list), it's Andy from the Smorgaspod's favourite Decepticons!
