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!

Issues #26, #27 and #28 are examined in this month's traverse into the world of Marvel UK's Transformers comics, and this is a biggie, as now it's a weekly publication! That'll really eat up material, but it's ok, because great things are on the horizon. Join Andy and Glenn as they dive into September 1985!

Listen on to find out!

We're coming to the end of the summer, and what better way to mark that than reminiscing about some retro stuff with our old mate Brad from the TFYTC?

We'll be talking about Transformers, Star Wars, Retrogaming and even some football of old, so make a cuppa, get some Pink Panther wafers in, and enjoy!
