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!

Kirsty and Amy join us once more, this time to talk some Trek! Star Trek: Deep Space Nine from 1993 to be exact (it's within the remit, honest!), which also happens to be Glenn's favourite Trek series.

Please join us to see why Sisko is the best captain, Worf was better here than on TNG, and believe that Garak really IS just a humble tailor. Honest.

Leigh and Glenn take a look at two Doctor Who stories this week - from 1977, it's The Invisible Enemy (otherwise known as that story where K-9 first appears) and Heaven Sent (otherwise known as one of the best Who outings EVER).

We also do our usual reminiscing about everything Who, so please join us and forget the world just for a little while!

Jenny from World of Crap is back with us, this time to talk all about one of her favourite subjects, that of Rainbow's very own Bungle Bear, and this time, it's all about those brave souls who have portrayed him over the years (and one who definitely didn't, but had to announce that fact).

We also mention Jenny's Kickstarter to produce a shiny new World of Crap Annual, so keep your eyes peeled for that - coming soon!

We're back - yes it's been a while, but Justice For All is back with you. In this first episode back it's all about catching up, with DC comics, movies, TV shows, and various other media!

Yes, we also talk about Marvel's New Warriors. How could we not?

It's episode 400! And I wish that the circumstances of that were better than they are right now, because it's weird out there right now. But Back to the Eighties will be going for the duration, so stay tuned!

This week sees myself and John "Bordersdude" Grieve take on a subject often neglected here, that of the Centurions, those men and machines that, when combined, become power EXTREME!

Leigh and Glenn are taking a look at the Third Doctor's second ever story in this episode, "Doctor Who And The Silurians" - so get ready for action, adventure, reptile people with limited peripheral vision, and the Doctor trolling petty bureaucrats!

The blueprint for his whole era, you might say. We love it.

Rejoice all, as Jenny from World of Crap is back to grace our lugholes, but wait - there'a a twist! She brings with her fanfiction of the Sonic the Hedgehog kind, to warp our brains and confuse our souls.

Needless to say, we're only poking gentle fun at the efforts of these would-be writers, at least they're being creative, right? Also, this episode is most definitely NSFW. Like you wouldn't BELIEVE.

We have a brand new guest joining us this week, all the way from that there Canada! Mandy from Little Geek Lost drops in to talk all about one of her specialist subjects, that of 80's horror.

There's also some UK/Canada crossover, with some inevitable Degrassi talk, and also that weird Huckleberry Finn series...

It's Nerva Beacon time again, and to mark the passing of the late, great Nicholas Parsons, Leigh and Glenn take a look at a piece of JNT's stunt casting that backfired in a rather lovely way, as we brave the Curse of Fenric.

We also have a quick look at how season 12 was going at time of recording, of course, and set ourselves up for the season finale - which now we all know about, and we'll take a look at that next time...

Well, that's it - we're 10 years old! For a decade we've been telling you all how great the Eighties were, and sharing all our memories of the Best Decade Ever.

And joining us on this very special show is  the guy whose idea it was in the first place: The Mighty Jer Bear is back!

Join us please, as two middle-aged men who should know better discuss just how much better it is now for us nostalgia geeks in 2020, than it was in 2010...

Thanks for listening, and here's to the next 10 years!

Well, that went by quickly. It's been almost 10 years since the very first Back to the Eighties episode, and that's something we should definitely celebrate!

In this first Very Special Episode, Phil comes back to co-host! We'll talk about nerdy 80's stuff, and also how the nerd landscape has changed over the last ten years - basically, we've never had it so good!

Amy and Kirsty are back to tell us all about a creepy urban legend of a man who, if you say his name five times in a mirror, comes back and kills you dead! It's Tony Todd - well, a the character he plays ate least in the 1992 horror classic, Candyman!

Joins us...if you dare.

It's time to check in on an eighties franchise we do sometimes neglect - the Teenage Mutant Ninja (Hero) Turtles! And joining us for the first time in a little while, it's the co-host with the co-most from Podcast in a Half Shell, Duncan Sparrow!

Join us for some Turtle talk about everything to do with the Green Machine, along with some choice Turtley Tangents!

It's been out a while now, so it's probably safe to start talking about the latest Star Wars movie and the climax (for now) of the whole Skywalker Saga! Needless to say, if you HAVEN'T watched the movie yet, here be spoilers.

Marvel as Brad and Glenn stay true to form and be the most uncritical Star Wars fans EVER.

Also, we talk some about The Mandalorian, and how much we want a Mayfield spin-off series. And also one about Babu Frik.

It's off to the Roaring Twenties in this episode, as Leigh and Glenn take a look at one of the historicals of the JNT era, as the Doctor and his companions take part in a mystery involving intrigue, danger, mistaken identity and...cricket. It's Black Orchid, everybody!

They also review the first two episodes of season 12 - are they any good?

It's our first episode proper of 2020, and we start off with a movie that wasn't out in the Eighties, but it certainly shaped the decade to come. We called it Star Wars, but now it's Episode IV: A New Hope!

So please join Andy from the Smorgaspod and myself, as we try to explain just why this (and the Star Wars franchise as a whole) was so important to us when we were growing up.
