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!

It's time to look at what April 1985's Transformers comics frm Marvel UK had to offer! I'm joined as usual by my old pal from school (and the Smorgaspod) Andy, so let's take a look! There's the continuing story of "The Enemy Within" - will Brawn be taken down for his haywire behaviour? There's a very strange inserted real-life story of a submarine - and there's all the usual "fun" of the Chromobots and Machine Man!

It's off to Necros for the latest episode of Nerva Beacon, as Leigh and Glenn check out what's going on at the planet-wide funeral home of Tranquil Repose! Why has the Doctor been summoned there? And why is Davros just a head? And why were so many people woefully miscast? And just the hell was Clive Swift's problem, anyway?

Join us to find out!

It's BTTE time again, and we have a brand new guest joining us, metal, nerd, YouTuber, Metal DJ and horror fan, Eliza Hyde! She's here to guide us through two worlds, those of 80's metal, and 80's horror, and what a ride it's going to be! 

Join us, and have your hair stand on end! (And that's because of the metal!)
