    Episode 400 - Man AND Machine!

    It's episode 400! And I wish that the circumstances of that were better than they are right now, because it's weird out there right now. But Back to the Eighties will be going for the duration, so stay tuned!
    This week sees myself and John "Bordersdude" Grieve take on a subject often neglected here, that of the Centurions, those men and machines that, when combined, become power EXTREME!

    The Nerva Beacon Podcast - Episode 31: Doctor Who And The Dinopeoples

    The Nerva Beacon Podcast - Episode 31: Doctor Who And The Dinopeoples

    Leigh and Glenn are taking a look at the Third Doctor's second ever story in this episode, "Doctor Who And The Silurians" - so get ready for action, adventure, reptile people with limited peripheral vision, and the Doctor trolling petty bureaucrats!
    The blueprint for his whole era, you might say. We love it.

    Episode 399 - Sanic Panic

    Episode 399 - Sanic Panic

    Rejoice all, as Jenny from World of Crap is back to grace our lugholes, but wait - there'a a twist! She brings with her fanfiction of the Sonic the Hedgehog kind, to warp our brains and confuse our souls.
    Needless to say, we're only poking gentle fun at the efforts of these would-be writers, at least they're being creative, right? Also, this episode is most definitely NSFW. Like you wouldn't BELIEVE.

    Episode 398 - Horrorific 80s!

    We have a brand new guest joining us this week, all the way from that there Canada! Mandy from Little Geek Lost drops in to talk all about one of her specialist subjects, that of 80's horror.
    There's also some UK/Canada crossover, with some inevitable Degrassi talk, and also that weird Huckleberry Finn series...

    The Nerva Beacon Podcast - Episode 30: You Gotta Have Faith

    The Nerva Beacon Podcast - Episode 30: You Gotta Have Faith

    It's Nerva Beacon time again, and to mark the passing of the late, great Nicholas Parsons, Leigh and Glenn take a look at a piece of JNT's stunt casting that backfired in a rather lovely way, as we brave the Curse of Fenric.
    We also have a quick look at how season 12 was going at time of recording, of course, and set ourselves up for the season finale - which now we all know about, and we'll take a look at that next time...

Toys Of Our Lives ,

Surviving

While I cannot lie & say that the loss of Paula, Becka, & Sam doesn’t severely injure the once-brilliant, familial chemistry that the fantastic four had, Glenn is doing an admirable job of sailing on solo, bringing on guest co-hosts of varying degrees of audio clarity that are for the most part also fun to listen to. It’s like if all that was left was the Black Lion, sure he couldn’t form Voltron anymore, but he’d still be fun to watch on his own. So that’s Glenn I guess- Raphael without the other 3 Turtles-still a knowledgeable, savvy, humorous force to be reckoned with - or at least listened to.

opinionated - complaining Host Ruins the podcast

Awful podcast! The host is very irritating and overly opinionated. If the subject is not to his liking, he utterly bashes it over and over relentlessly to the point where you feel compelled to leave a bad review. Everyone else is pleasant but the host ruins the entire listening experience.

Possibly the best 80's podcast ever made.

I have been listening to a lot of 80's podcasts and I just have to say this is the best. Every memory I have had of the 80's is rekindled with these guys help. I find these guys informative,humorous and entertaining. I love the toy talk as well as it informs collectors of whats going on in the toy world.
