Engage!

Grand.

When The Music Stops: Masters of the Universe - Wings of Doom
14 Sep 2017 @ 04:53 am

It's a triumphant return for When The Music Stops, this time with a visit to Eternia, where Stratos and his wife Delora (yes, in Ladybird continuity she's his wife and not his sister) are being menaced by the Evil Lord of Destruction himself - Skeletor!

(Also, "Captain Blue" Ed Bishop is narrating. Also, he says "Avion" with a French inflection. This whole story is weird.)

The Nerva Beacon Podcast - Episode 6
6 Sep 2017 @ 11:58 am

It's all about the First Doctor this week - the Original, you might say. From his possible early days on Gallifrey, to kidnapping teachers and almost murdering cavemen, to heartbreaking goodbyes of loved ones (and Chesterton) and his last days as more of a kindly Edwardian gentleman, Leigh and Glenn examine it all!

Episode 307 - I'd Buy That For A Dollar
2 Sep 2017 @ 11:37 am

Dead or alive, you're coming with us...to spotlight one of the best and cleverest action movies of the 1980s!

Joining Glenn this week is Duncan from Podcast in a Half Shell, as they discuss not only how awesome Robo himself is, but also how Paul Verhoeven took what could so easily have been a no-brain actioner, and made one of the sharpest satires of our time.

Thank you for your co-operation.

Episode 305 - Cunning Plan
19 Aug 2017 @ 12:59 pm

Nerva Beacon's Leigh joins Glenn this week, as they go back in time to not only Medieval England, but also the Elizabethan era, The Regency and First World War Flanders (by way of Victorian London at Christmastime).

They are, of course, taking a trip through history and exploring the dastardly family tree of the rotten Blackadder dynasty, so expect not only Edmund himself, but Baldrick, Percy, Melchett, Queenie, ESPECIALLY Flashheart, and everyone else, along with some thoroughly cunning plans.

Wubble.

Episode 304 - Mostly TF, Most Of The Time
12 Aug 2017 @ 12:12 pm

It's time for even more of a stroll down memory lane for Glenn this week, as he's joined by a pal from his childhood, someone he's known for 28 years! Andy from the Smorgaspod co-hosts this time around, as they discuss Transformers, Star Wars and a good few more nostalgic touchstones!

Episode 303 - Caravan of Love
5 Aug 2017 @ 02:17 am

Jenny from World of Crap is back this week, and as it's holiday time for most of us, we're having a nostalgie about the caravan holidays we had in the 80s!

From mountains of sandwiches in cool boxes, to talent competitions at the caravan clubhouse, even Max Bygraves on the car stereo - it's all here!

So buckle up, make sure the car battery is connected to the portable telly, and make yourself comfy on the sculpted velour sofa!
