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 back with some essential Marvel UK Transformers content, as Andy and Glenn explore the coming of the Special Teams, and the Decepticons realising that menacing humans is far more productive than fighting the Autobots...

(This episode covers issues #59-#63.)

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.
