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!

Chris Vint joins us this week, he of the Masters of the Universe Chronicles and a million other worthy ventures, to talk all about He-Man and his mates on Eternia - but this time we're mainly focusing on the toys and print media - we're saving Filmation for another episode!

So, if it was a toy, a comic, mini-comic and something else entirely, we'll try and talk about it here! Please, join us!

Amy, David and Glenn assemble once more to talk all about DC Comics, and this time, it's all about those people who have replaced established heroes, albeit on a temporary basis (sometimes, more than once!)

What do you think of our picks? Who would you choose? Let us know, and we'll discuss them on the next episode!

Andy from the Smorgaspod is back once again, and this time we're chatting all about GI Joe! Or Action Force, as we would have known it in the UK up until 1990. We talk about it's early beginnings as an offshoot of the Action Man line, all through the various Hasbro influenced changes, the comics, the cartoons, and beyond!

Please join us, or Baron Ironblood might get you!

Leigh and Glenn are back with more Doctor Who ramblings, this time with a double whammy of the gloriousness of Donna Noble from Modern Who - and with the sad news of the passing of Pip Baker, we take a look at one of their most famous stories, from the Trial of a Time Lord cycle, it's murder on the Galactic Express as we confront the Terror of the Vervoids!

Duncan's back again, this time to talk about Batman, and how he was transformed in the Eighties from a Caped Crusader who wasn't all that popular anymore, into a global icon whose popularity hasn't waned since. And as it's Duncan, we also talk about stuff like Batman Beyond and the Justice League cartoons, because why not. Please join us, and give us a listen!

David, Amy and Glenn come together again, this time to talk about their favourite heroes and villains who aren't part of the "top tier", the second stringers, shall we say. This in no way means we don't think they're not brilliant, as you'll find. But they're also not the ones who continually make it into the top 5 lists, and we think that's not fair, so please, give us a listen!

Kirsty and Amy join us once more, this time to talk some Trek! Star Trek: Deep Space Nine from 1993 to be exact (it's within the remit, honest!), which also happens to be Glenn's favourite Trek series.

Please join us to see why Sisko is the best captain, Worf was better here than on TNG, and believe that Garak really IS just a humble tailor. Honest.

Leigh and Glenn take a look at two Doctor Who stories this week - from 1977, it's The Invisible Enemy (otherwise known as that story where K-9 first appears) and Heaven Sent (otherwise known as one of the best Who outings EVER).

We also do our usual reminiscing about everything Who, so please join us and forget the world just for a little while!
