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 off to Necros for the latest episode of Nerva Beacon, as Leigh and Glenn check out what's going on at the planet-wide funeral home of Tranquil Repose! Why has the Doctor been summoned there? And why is Davros just a head? And why were so many people woefully miscast? And just the hell was Clive Swift's problem, anyway?

If it's 80s, and it's about the squared circle, you can bet we'll be reminiscing about it this week, in the way that only we can at BTTE Towers. Now, say your prayers, drink your milk, and take your ster-I mean, vitamins, and RING THAT DAMN BELL!

Marvel as Brad and Glenn stay true to form and be the most uncritical Star Wars fans EVER.

Also, we talk some about The Mandalorian, and how much we want a Mayfield spin-off series. And also one about Babu Frik.
