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 and Kirsty are back with us this week, to talk about a Star Trek series that, whilst made in the Nineties, still had one foot firmly locked in the Eighties - Voyager! Join us as we talk about the genesis of the series, our favourite characters and episodes, and why Janeway might just be the best Starfleet captain of them all.

It's an episode of endings and beginnings for the UK Transformers comics of May 1985, as "The Enemy Within" ends and "Raiders of the Last Ark" kick off, meaning that our mini-run of UK stories will be ending also in just a few issues time!

There are also the usual other features, Machine Man, Planet Terry and the like, and also a few new ads, including a spectaculare one featuring the Insecticons...

It's back to 1977 for this episode, and the Chris Boucher story that fleshed out it's characters so much that there's been spin-offs and returns and even a hint of it being part of a wider universe entirely! 

Join Glenn and Leigh as they encounter the Robots of Death, and try to avoid being the latest of the crew to be bumped off!

Eliza Hyde is back to join us this week, talking about another one of her passions  - Doctor Who, and because it's us, it's all about the Eighties period, on of the tumultous in it's history!

From the end of the Fourth, to the end of the series (for a while, at least) it's all here, so step aboard the nostalgia TARDIS, and prepare for a wild ride!

It's time to welcome back our old friend comedian, barber, raconteur and all round great guy Wil Hodgson for a nostalgic ramble through the Eighties stopping at places like Public Information Film woods, and Long Forgotten Cartoon island!

I think I might have pushed this analogy too far.
