Tom takes Morgan back to the 1980s – when fantasy movies were everywhere and full of animatronics and puppets instead of CGI and green screens.

This episode delves into the brilliant mind of the late, great Jim Henson, and two of his non-Muppet movies: The Dark Crystal and Labyrinth. Movies that were not huge successes at the time, but have grown to become cult favourites.

We discuss everything from David Bowie’s bulge, scary bird things and whether pretending you were the baby in Labyrinth wins you any friends at uni.
