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!

The Rise of Skywalker is only a few months away, so Brad and Glenn get together again and talk some about that Galaxy Far, Far Away, from the Eighties and their first discovery of it, to the video games that came from it, to the cartoons and toys, and their theories on what might happen in the new movie.

They might get a bit excited about it. Jus' sayin'.

This week's episode is all about the Australian soap that was set at Wentworth, in Cell Block H, which would usually appear on K television screens after 11pm - it's Prisoner!

Lee from The Foot of Our Stairs joins us to talk all about his favourite Aussie drama, as well as discuss lots of other nostalgic gems such as Telly Addicts, Rentaghost and Chimera!

So if you're a fan of Aussie melodrama, this episode's definitely the one for you.

Duncan from Stacebob and the Dweebs is back with us, and this time he's getting all excited about the movies of the legend that is John Woo, from Asian cinema, to Hollywood, and back again, bringing his own brand of imagery and stylised violence with him.

If you like doves, standoffs and especially dual wielding whilst flying through the air, you've definitely come to the right place.

Leigh and Glenn are back after the summer holidays, but sadly with bad news, as former Doctor Who script editor, Target adaptation novelist extraordinaire and all round good egg Terrance Dicks passed away on the 29th August, 2019.

This episode is therefore a celebration of, and dedicated to, his life and work. Farewell, Terrance.

We're back after the holidays, and this time we're joined by Amy from Eccentric Earth! She picked the 1982 movie The Last Unicorn, so we have a bit of a natter about not only that, but the fantasy genre in the early 80's, and try to find out why it was a very dark and forbidding place. And why it seems that unicorns aren't badasses now.
