Episode 299 - Charley Says


This week's episode is all about FEAR. TERROR. Forget YOLO, because the Public Information Films of the 70's and 80's made sure that you'd never want to try anything new, EVER.

Joining Glenn this week are Jenny from the World of Crap and comedy writer and author Joe Turner, to travel far into the world of Brian Wilde warning us of electrical substations, Charley saying stuff, and Dark and Lonely Water.

Epsiode 298 - GAME OVER, MAN


In cyberspace, no one can hear you scream.

They CAN hear Sam and Glenn go on about Xenomorphs and Xenomorph related ephemera, though. So please, join us as we go on for a couple of hours about the Alien franchise in all it's many forms, from the early days of the "Big Chap", through the glory days of Cameron and his mighty Alien army, to today's take on the chestbursting nightmare fuel merchants.

Also, Vasquez is Queen. Jus' sayin'.

Episode 297 - Turn to Page 140


It's Special Guest time here in BTTE Towers, and who better to guide us through the weird and wonderful world of choosable path books than one half of the Reuse Your Old Adventure team? Yes, the self-proclaimed "cute half" of Rik & Matty joins us - hello to Matty Franklyn!

Mattty joins Sam, Paula, Glenn and Becca to talk about the wealth of books that we had in the Eighties in this genre, from Choose Your Own Adventure, to Fighting Fantasy, and even the D&D books (including the Ravenloft books, Matty's particular favourite, if only because they get to use their Count von Count voice).

So get your character sheets, pencils and D6es at the ready, as we launch headlong into countless fantasy worlds, and take on the challenges within...

Test Your Luck.
