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!

Leigh and Glenn return, this time to look at a story that may have some significance in the UK right now, as an oppressive regime wants to move on from tragedy and look only towards false happiness...

There's also an article from our good friend Jenny, we also check out the latest Who news, including a lockdown drama, and Four and Ten teaming up against the Daleks!

Andy from The Smorgaspod joins us again, and this time he's here to talk about those Knights of the Magical Light - 1987's Visionaries!

From the toys, to the cartoons, to the short-lived comic and all the way back to today - should Hasbro take a risk on them again, especially as their eBay prices suggest there's a demand for them? Or has their time in the light passed?

Please, join us to find out what we think!

Amy and Glenn take a look at 1995's Batman Forever in this episode, and discover that at it's beating heart, Joel Schumacher created a film that's far closer to Batman Begins than any of the first run of Batman films Warner produced.

I know. We were surprised, too.

Jenny from World of Crap is back, and this time she's all about the arcade ticket-spewing machines that gave so much joy (and plushie toys, rubbers and giant pencils) throughout the 80s and beyond. 

From Donkey Derbys to Whack-A-Mole, to that Addams Family one where it pretends to electrocute you, they're all here. JOIN US.

We're joined by a new friend to the podcast this week - Timmus TSET is here, and they're all ready to talk some WRASSLIN'!

If it's 80s, and it's about the squared circle, you can bet we'll be reminiscing about it this week, in the way that only we can at BTTE Towers. Now, say your prayers, drink your milk, and take your ster-I mean, vitamins, and RING THAT DAMN BELL!

Join Leigh and Glenn as they navigate the murky time eddies of the Coronavirus Era, and wonder why a certain former Doctor Who writer has decided to block everyone who disagrees with him on Twitter, before asking each other all manner of Doctor Who questions in order to stave off the forces of the world on perpetual pause...
