Pure brilliance

This is by an absolute country mile THE best podcast right now.
If you don’t like fun, if you don’t like movies and if you don’t like taking a trip down memory lane to the 80’s then your probably flatlining.
Cheersee

A real nostalgia trip

I LOVE this podcast. As a child of the eighties, this is a real trip down memory lane, revisiting some of my favourite films I grew up with. The two presenters are knowledgeable and funny. They’re obviously two mates on their own nostalgia trip, inviting you along with them. Can we have a Robocop episode please?!

A tonic for the podcast soul

This is not just any old podcast where two millennials get drunk and talk junk. Oh no, this is pure entertainment. Darn hilarious in a non-offensive way, whilst delivering well-thought out film facts, trivia and opinions through the “2020 eyes” of two people who lived it originally. I especially like the bit where Darren gets considerably more slury as the episodes progress (Is Matt immune to alcohol?), the synopsis challenge and the quiz at the end. I love this podcast so much I considered buying men’s pants just to support them (every cis woman needs men’s pants right?). Thank goodness for Patreon. CHEERSY!!
