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!

Happy Hallowe'en! Even though 2020 is plenty scary enough for everyone, let's celebrate the spooky season with one of the scarier epsiodes of Transformers - Nightmare Planet!

Joining us is animator extraordinary and all round good guy Harry Partridge, so let's make our way into dreamland and wonder just *how* did Springer and Razorclaw escape that dungeon?

We have Tasmin joining us again for this episode, this time to talk about the 2013 reboot of the Superman franchise, Man of Steel! And because it's JFA, there's also talk of the Snyderverse AND DC Universe in general, because why not, right?

Pete from the Smorgasbored podcast joins us this week, and we're off to Marineville for a nice little holiday filled with sea invaders, love triangles, descending buildings and awesome submarines as we take a look at a Gerry Anderson programme from the Sixties that was all over Eighties (and Nineties) kid's programming - Stingray!

We have Chris Vint joining us this week, and it's a bit of a videogamey one, considering we're talking about the 1989 movie that Nintendo filled to the brim with product placement - The Wizard!

But is this version of Tommy for Gen X any good? Or is it like the Power Glove itself, "So Bad?" Join us to find out!

We're welcoming a special guest today who hasn't been of for a while - it's author, podcaster and all round great guy George Daniel Lea!

He's here to talk about the Decepticon Leader from 1987 who's making a resurgence thanks to his Earthrise toy - the evil and cruel Scorponok! From his comic appearences in Marvel UK all the way to the present day, it's all about the eight legged Headmaster menace!
