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!

Andy's back, and that means it's Transformers time! The Marvel UK comic has gone weekly, so there's 4 issues a month to cover! There's Decepticon Dam-Busters, Shockwave threatening Prime, and an epic battle between the Dinobots and a nasty little surprise left by everyone's favourite monocular Decepticon leader!

We're joined by someone new this week - Sacha AKA Coffeehound RetroSharka! She's here to talk about one of favourite subjects here at BTTE Towers - computer games of the Microcomputer era! Spectrum, C64, even the BBC Micro, we'll talk about them all, with a few cameos from a few other characters! You think that there was a video game bust in the mid-80s - think again!
