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 Special Guest time here in BTTE Towers, and who better to guide us through the weird and wonderful world of choosable path books than one half of the Reuse Your Old Adventure team? Yes, the self-proclaimed "cute half" of Rik & Matty joins us - hello to Matty Franklyn!

Mattty joins Sam, Paula, Glenn and Becca to talk about the wealth of books that we had in the Eighties in this genre, from Choose Your Own Adventure, to Fighting Fantasy, and even the D&D books (including the Ravenloft books, Matty's particular favourite, if only because they get to use their Count von Count voice).

So get your character sheets, pencils and D6es at the ready, as we launch headlong into countless fantasy worlds, and take on the challenges within...

Test Your Luck.
