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!

Amy, Dave and Glenn are back to talk about some DC Comics, and this time they're discussing the upcoming Superman and Lois (not yet seen in the UK!) and also Zack Snyder's Justice League, and their various excitement levels for them! There's also the usual comic book nerdery, so please JOIN US!

We're welcoming someone new this week - all the way from Sonic The Comic The Podcast, it's the very lovely Dave Bulmer! He's here to talk about the Mr Men, and a musical he documented himself in the late Eighties, in an exercise book he was given at a birthday party - but we'll get to that. If you're a Mr Men fan, you definitely need to join us this week!

Duncan from Stacebob and the Dweebs joins us again this week to talk about what he got up to in the Nineties - the music, movies, TV shows and video games that made him the way he is. Which might explain a lot, to be honest.

It's all about the video games this week, as we're joined by the wonderful TimmusTSET to talk some Nineties videogaming, including not only the systems and consoles of the time, but also what we were playing down the arcades of a Saturday afternoon!

It's time for another special guest to the Beacon, and this time it's actor, podcaster and Whotuber Adam Martyn who pays us a visit to talk about what Leigh and Glenn talked about last week, K9 & Company! Adam doesn't see this through the lens of rose-tinted nostalgia though, so how will his opinions differ to the two ancient relics from last week? Tune in to find out!

New Year, new Transformers comics! And a new beginning in a very real sense, as we finally get to some original Marvel UK TF content in the form of the very first UK-only story, Man of Iron!

Join Andy from the Smorgaspod and myself as we go through the UK's premier transforming robots comic of the 80s!

In the first of two episodes covering the 1981 Doctor Who spin-off K-9 & Company, Leigh and Glenn sit down to have a bit of a natter about it, and see if it's aged like a fine wine, or if it's a bit of a tin dog egg?

Next time, WhoTuber Adam Martyn does the same, but from the perspective of someone who didn't see it at the time...

Phil joins us for the first time in a little while, to talk about all of the TV programmes announced at the Disney investor's meeting late last year - basically the wishlist of every 80's kid, and all of the Star Wars and Marvel content we could have ever wanted!

Join Dave, Amy and Glenn as they go through their favourite DC Event comics, and see if there's any "crossovers" between them!

NOTE: this episode was recorded before Christmas, so apologies for all the excitable Yuletide talk.

Brad from the TFYTC is back with us again, as we take another trip into the Star Wars Universe, this time with particular focus on the excellent Disney+ series, The Mandalorian!

This WAS recorded before the finale though, so at least this time around you'll be spared the sound of two grown men crying over the fate of a Muppet. Next time though...

Marvel UK's Transformers first Christmas was not a very Christmassy affair, as they seemed to have a lot of US Transformers material to get through - you'd think that maybe they could have sacrificed the Machine Man comics, though. Oh well.

Join Andy from the Smorgaspod and myself as we go through the UK's premier transforming robots comic of the 80s!
