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 this month's Transformers Marvel UK issues 19,20 and 21 from June 1985 - it's good summer reading as we end the run of stories from the UK, next month we go back to the cliffhanger from the US! Can Andy and Glenn take it?

It's Sonic the Hedghog's 30th Birthday today, so please do join Glenn and special guest Timmus_TSET for a bit of a birthday bash! We talk about the blue speedster's origins as a rival mascot for the mighty Mario, his Genesis within Sega itself, and all our personal memories of spending hours and hours attempting speedruns!

Happy Birthday, Sonic! Don't run too fast after eating all the cake.
