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!

We're nearly at the end of the second year of Marvel UK Transformers comics, and things are hotting up with the Creation Matrix story! Will Buster be able to figure out what to do with what's in his head? And will Prime be able to stop Shockwave being able to create a new line of Decepticon warriors? Join Andy from the Smorgaspod and myself to find out! 

(This episode covers issues #33-#37.)

Duncan from Stacebob and the Dweebs is back with us this episode, and we're talking about one of the most important directors that horror has ever seen - John Carpenter! From The Thing to Assault on Precinct 13, it's all here! As are all the tangents that Glenn and Dunc go on in one of their episodes. Please, join us on the ride! It'll be fun, honest!

The Chibnall Era is swiftly coming to an end, and now we know who's going to be taking over...the show, at least. Russell T Davies is coming back, and we're excited here at the Nerva Beacon!

We also take a look at 1985's Vengeance on Varos, a Sixth Doctor adventure that ultimately got the show into hot water...well, hot acid, at the very least.
