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!

John the Bordersdude joins us again this week, to talk about Belgium's premier export (aside from Stella Artois, that is) - Jean-Claude Van Damme!

From his early days as a legitimate martial artist right through to erm, Street Fighter, it's all here! Please join us!

And as it's Duncan, rest assured there'll be tangents. So. Many. Tangents.

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.

It's the show that introduced many of us to the G1 cartoon, the Timmy Mallett fronted show from our school holidays - WACaday!

Because we're nice, we also decided to throw in some TV-am and Roland Rat stuff in there too, including that time that the UK press tried to expose something a little bit kinky about Roland himself.

Not only that, but we also take a look at the short-lived but much-loved TV show that came after it! I honestly think it'd be great if they brought it back, to be honest. What do YOU lot think? Let us know!
