This week we finger-light the time machine to 1982 to look around and watch it's big gross movie: E.T. The Extra-Terrestrial!  We talk about Mrs. Thatcher's toy war, the weird, boring way Canada came to be, and then go over the heartwarming fecal puppet antics of a space alien with special guest and comedian Aisha Brown.

This week we pull 12 gs in the time machine and land in the disco morass of 1979 and watch it's big gross movie Moonraker.  We talk about Iran, nuclear things, an enormous explosion and the teeny old lady who fixed it.  Then we strap in and go over the loose collection of action scenes starring an old man with poor knees: Moonraker with returning guest Ryan Horwood

This week we laboriously drag the time machine back to 1962 to have a gander around and watch its big gross movie Lawrence of Arabia!  We talk about Space, Mississippi, and then try to tell you what it is like to look directly into the abyss that is Lawrence of Arabia with special guest Nile Seguin!

This week comedian Cathryn Naiker stumbled into a stockpile of fissile time-machine grade material somehow so we swung by the nightmare sandwich dimension to pick up Co-host Meg Mackay on the way to check out 1990 and its big gross movie Ghost.  We talk about weaponised GnR, the best guy ever, and go over the Oka crisis before emotionally exploding.
