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 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.
