Get Stuck Into This

Each week hosts Steve Spears and Sean Daly take a hilarious - and often pretty personal - look at life in the 80s.
If you lived through the decade you'll enjoy remembering the movies, music and big hair.
If you missed it, let Spearsy and Sean be your guide to John Hughes movies, superbands and the cults you missed.
This isn't a misty-eyed look back - these two can't take themselves seriously. You will laugh and out loud.
Worth tuning in just for the 80s- themed quizzes. At this late date they've already covered so much of the territory.
There's nearly 200 of podcasts ready for you - what are you waiting for?

Thanks for nothing

Loved this show in the begining. But the so called stars are now full of themselves. Why disrespect Australia the way you do? Keep your US show Arian like you'd love to!!
