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 Christmas 1985, and the Transformers comic has been going a little while now, and finally gives us a proper Christmas issue! Dated 3 days AFTER Christmas Day, but still! We also get a proper Christmassy story, the conclusion of the Creation Matrix Saga, and an iconic image of Optimus Prime. Join myself and Andy as we take a look at Christmas 36 years ago!

(This episode covers issues #38-#41.)

It's Christmas time again, and we're kicking off the festivities in style with Sonic the Comic the Podcast's Dave Bulmer! We'll be talking about some great Christmas memories including school plays, making Christmas cards, glitter glue, pressies, and also taking a look at the BBC line up on Christmas Day, 1988!

Pull up a blanket, grab a cuppa, and get cosy!
