Episode 312 - And Knowing Is Half The Battle


It's a blast from the past this week, as co-founder of Back to the Eighties, Jeremy joins us to check on how the podcast is doing - so quick, look busy! The Boss is here!

We'll also be doing some reminiscing, this time about GI Joe, Cobra, the state of the franchise, and asking why Hasbro doesn't seem to care less about one of it's heritage properties right now.

The Nerva Beacon Podcast - Episode 7: The Second Doctor


Leigh and Glenn reconvene to have a bit of a chat about the second Doctor this week - a Doctor borne out of necessity, but also a Doctor that literally rewrote the rules and everything we thought we knew about the character!

Episode 11 - He'll Save Every One Of Us


Claire Vaughan from Chapter Arts joins us this week to talk about a movie that's very close to both of our geeky hearts, a film maybe not considered good at the time, but has certainly become a massive cult classic now, and worthy of anyone's nerdy nostalgia - 1980's Flash Gordon!

Episode 310 - We Have The Power


We have the awesomely awesome Chris Vint with us this week, to chat about a subject close to both our hearts (especially as Chris used to podcast about this very subject on the Masters of the Universe Chronicles) - Masters of the Universe, along with She-Ra and the Great Rebellion!

Nyahhhh.

Episode 309 - Young Ones Shouldn't Be Afraid


Leigh's co-hosting again this week, and she's chosen to spotlight one of the best and most influential comdies of the 1980s - The Young Ones!

We'll be taking a look at Scumbag College's finest, their influence on the comedies that came later, and of course, praising the god-like genius that was Lord Sir Rik of Mayall.

You utter, utter, utter, utter bastards.

Episode 308 - Here's To The Finest Crew In Starfleet!


Engage!

This week sees Glenn joined by one of the biggest Star Trek fans he knows - Mr Tony Thrustle - to talk about the Enterprise crew that came to be loved perhaps even more than the originals - we of course mean the crew from Star Trek: The Next Generation!

Grand.

When The Music Stops: Masters of the Universe - Wings of Doom


It's a triumphant return for When The Music Stops, this time with a visit to Eternia, where Stratos and his wife Delora (yes, in Ladybird continuity she's his wife and not his sister) are being menaced by the Evil Lord of Destruction himself - Skeletor!

(Also, "Captain Blue" Ed Bishop is narrating. Also, he says "Avion" with a French inflection. This whole story is weird.)
