Back to the Eighties - Episode 325 - Working Overtime, Fighting Crime

This week sees the return of the Jer Bear himself, Jeremy Sebolt! He's here to talk about a personal 80s passion, those masked crusaders themselves. the mighty Mobile Armoured Strike Kommand!

Yes, we know that "command" isn't spelt like that. It was the 80s.

From Thunderhawk to Switchblade, from Spectrum to Viper, we discuss it all here, and even give some love to the more insane vehicles that came late on in the line!

We even say nice things about the cartoon.

Back to the Eighties - The Nerva Beacon Podcast - Episode 9: The Third Doctor

It's the turn of Doctor number 3 to come under the spotlight of Leigh and Glenn, as they look at not only UNIT, Jo, Liz, Sarah Jane, The Master and all the other great foes he came up against, but also the real world reasons why the Third Doctor ended up being an exile on planet Earth, sometime around the 1970s or 80s. Ish.

Don't worry. We're not opening THAT particular can of worms anytime soon.

Back to the Eighties - Episode 323 - Getting Too Old For This

Duncan joins us again this week - yes, Duncan from Stacebob and the Dweebs! He's come on again to talk about one of his favourite movie franchises - the Lethal Weapon series! That age-old tale of older cop meets unhinged cop, meets violent paramilitary drug dealing organisation. You know, that old chesnut.

So expect thrills, spills, Three Stooges, Leo Getz, evil diplomats and getting screwed at the Drive Thru.

Ok, ok, ok.

Back to the Eighties - Episode 322 - Return of the Last Jedi

Andy from the mighty Smorgaspod joins us this week, as we talk not only about the latest episode of the Star Wars saga, The Last Jedi (now that all the dust has settled), but also Glenn's experience at the recent "An Evening with Chevy Chase" - an event either ruined or enhanced by the addition of 80's DJ and Saturday Superstore host, Mike Read! 

Yes, that bloke who did the UKIP calypso.

Back to the Eighties - Episode 321 - The Friday Big Shop

It's the Back to the Eighties Friday Big Shop, which means that we'll be taking a trip down Memory Lane, and looking at some of the supermarkets in the UK that sadly didn't make it out of the Eighties, or at the very least the Nineties.

Joining Glenn on this meander is none other than Jenny for the World of Crap, so let's grab a trolley, go through the big turnstile and the trolley flaps, and prepare to be disappointed by not being allowed to look down the toy aisle - it's time for some shopping!

Back to the Eighties - Episode 320 - It's Showtime!

Happy 2018 everyone!

In this first show, Glenn's joined by good old Duncan Sparrow from the Podcast in a Half Shell (soon to be renamed) - and this time he's chose to bring forth the 1988 Tim Burton classic spooktacular Beetlejuice!

So be sure NOT to name Him three times (Beetlejuice, not Dunc, obvs) and keep your Handbook for the Recently Deceased with you at all times - this is gonna get weird.

Back to the Eighties - Episode 318 - Merry Christmas, Mr Cross

With Christmas coming at us fast and furious now, it's time to spotlight another great 80s movie, and this time it's totally unambiguous as to whether or not it's a Christmas movie!

Join Glenn and always special guest Duncan Sparrow, as they look at Richard Donner's 1988 classic Scrooged, starring the inimitable Bill Murray!
