Episode 233 - Gobots GO BOTTY!

It's the first episode proper of season 3, and this time, it's getting serious, because Glenn has tasked Paula, Sam and Becca with watching a cartoon that can send hardened nerds running for the hills, crying like babies. Yes folks, it's the Challenge of the Gobots!

There's also lots of news about all of our favourite franchises, and a great question from one of our lovely listeners.

So, join us as we go botty about Gobots!!

Episode 232 Newsletter

Hi guys, and welcome to the first BTTE Podcast newsletter!

The purpose of these delightful ramblings will be to illuminate some awesome parts of the show and to give you all the links to the sites that we reference in the news section (see timestamps after each news heading to help you navigate quickly to the relevant section). So while you listen to us chatting about the new fancy transformer that’s coming out or the new look of the Ghostbusters film you can see them too!

Also a good bit of blowing our own trumpet and saying how radical we all are is going to happen here, (There it was… did you miss it? Not too subtle hopefully) and that you should tell all of your friends about the new shinny format of the Back to the Eighties Podcast! Woo hoo!

Episode 232

Welcome to the last show of what we're now calling season two!

Yes folks, we've decided here at BTTE Towers that we need a bit of a rethink of the format of the podcast, and so we're re-jigging things up a bit!

Don't worry, we'll still be here, doing what we do, getting all up in your Eighties grills, but just now, in a slightly different fashion.

So, join Becca, Paula, Sam and Glenn for a bit of a new look show,where we tackle the last remaining homeworks of season two,  and starting next week, the start of season three, with all new and shiny things coming your way!

Episode 231

Glenn's back from his hols this week, so normal service is most definitely resumed! Joining him are Becca, Paula and Sam (so, the full team, then), as they catch up on what they've been up to recently, and Glenn relates his long journey 'cross the Atlantic to the city that never sleeps, New York! There's also oodles of news from all of our favourite franchises, and a question from Valentine75 regarding old ads, which sets off a bit of a chain reaction. Stay tuned next week for what happens with that, folks!
