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 time for some more retrogaming goodness with Amy and Glenn, and this episode is all about the great (and not so great) Star Wars games of yesteryear! From TIE Fighter to Rogue Squadron, from Power Jedi Battles to Masters of Teräs Käsi, it's all here! 

I have a bad feeling about this.

It's time to look at what April 1985's Transformers comics frm Marvel UK had to offer! I'm joined as usual by my old pal from school (and the Smorgaspod) Andy, so let's take a look! There's the continuing story of "The Enemy Within" - will Brawn be taken down for his haywire behaviour? There's a very strange inserted real-life story of a submarine - and there's all the usual "fun" of the Chromobots and Machine Man!
