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!
Episode 256 - The House of Mouse

It's Sam's turn to spotlight this week, and he's chosen to examine the fortunes of Disney in the 1980s, a time of strife and misfortune and very, very bad business decisions for the House of Mouse, with films like The Fox and the Hound and The Black Cauldron almost causing financial ruin for Disney. How did they turn things around to become the media juggernaught they currently are?

Speaking of things Disney related, we also talk about the current Civil War trailer, as well as all the other geeky things we always end up talking about! So join Sam, Becca, Paula and Glenn for another helping of 1980s nostalgia!
