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!

As promised last time he was on, Andy from the Smorgaspod and myself start going through the whole of Marvel UK, issue by issue! This time: it's issue #1, and it's all shiny and new, and frankly doesn't know what to do with itself. there's a chunk of TF US #1, as well as Machine Man and lots of ads and competitions galore!

This episode was recorded just after we lost the incomparable Dame Diana Rigg, and as such, Leigh and Glenn decided it was only right to take a look at an episode that was written especially for her: The Crimson Horror, from 2013.

There's also the lastest WHOpinion from Jenny, and some Time Lord Victorious rumblings as well!

As there's recently been announced a new RoboCop show (set before Robo - surely this will be called "Cop"?), Duncan joins us to talk about the 1994 Canadian version of RoboCop that was family friendly, where criminals only shot to maim, and were only a little bit naughty. 

But, as Glenn argues, shouldn't there be a version of Robo for the kiddywinks? Let's find out!

THIS IS AN EMERGENCY!

Seeing as BritBox has all things Gerry Anderson on it right now, Dan Hadley from the Type 40 Podcast joins me to discuss his major puppet series from the Eighties - Terrahawks!

It's weird, it's odd, it's deeper than you think. And Zelda is STILL bloody scary. Ten-Ten!
