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!

In the first of what we hope to be many episodes, join Amy and Glenn as they take a look at Retrogaming in all it's many and varied forms, as well as focusing on particular games, systems, and the culture of retro itself!

In this opening episode, we talk about our histories, favourites, and loves of the retrogaming world!

Dave from Sonic the Comic the Podcast joins us again this week, to talk about records that we owned as kids in the 80s! They might not necessarily have been made in our favourite decade, but we would have definitely listened to them, so let's show them some love, shall we?

Leigh and Glenn are back to take a look at 2022's Easter Special, Legend of the Sea Devils - but was it more akin to Delgado in the original Sea Devil series, or did it have the distinct whiff of the Myrka about it?

NB: This was recorded before the announcement of the 14th Doctor.

This week we're delving into the many, many fantasy movies that appeared in the 80s, a whistle-stop tour if you will! Joining us on that journey is our old mate Duncan from Stacebob and the Dweebs. So gird your loins, grab your broadsword, and hope that we roll a D20, we're going in!

This week we're joined by the Fluid Goth that is Amy, to talk all about computing and gaming in the late 1980s, but especially that most popular 8-bit system in Europe, the Sega Master System! It may have been all about the NES in the States, but over here in the UK we did love a bit of Sega!
