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!

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.
